Honored to be asked to help plan Wedding Crashers this year, I am thrilled to share a recap of this fun event! Big, huge thanks to the amazing Kristina Hill for capturing the day so beautifully!
The Brooklyn Based wedding event offered some of the most talented wedding professionals a comfortable, creative and cool environment to showcase their work and talk to couples planning their weddings. I was so happy to spend the day with many old friends and thrilled to meet great new ones as well.

Nine Cakes never ceases to amaze me. Her cakes are delicious period. But, owner Betsy is always so kind and generous with her spirit and her sweets. She let me have some of her cupcakes to fill the stand on my table at Wedding Crashers. She has a beautiful new website. Congrats! Two amazing wedding photographers– on totally separate occasion have been heard (ok, one read on facebook) singing the praises of the Nine Cake macaroon. Who knew?
Anni from NYC Faces was busy beautifying the brides to be. Anni is great, she and I worked on a wedding together a few weeks ago and all the bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning.
Kimberly from Inspired Goodness has such great style and aesthetic. I adore her blog and her website it brand new, also. Congrats Kimberly!
Rebecca Shepherd Floral Design started by making beautiful jewelry. I was excited to learn that both Rebecca and Kristina (Hill) are my neighbors. You can see a cool photo shoot they both worked on recently here.
NewlyWish has revolutionized how people register for gifts. It really is the solution to not getting things you don’t want for your wedding. Many small or specialty stores don’t offer their customers wedding registries, but now thanks to this service you can indeed registry for what you want. Hurray for being able to register for interesting, out of the box, original items while shopping locally and supporting small businesses.
Elegantly Iced was new to me and I was blown away by their cakes on display. They were so beautiful and to my delight as delicious as they were intricate.
Thanks to Vané, of Brooklyn Bride for monitoring the talks. It was an honor to be introduced so warmly by someone with such a powerful online voice.
Thanks to Nicole the editor of Brooklyn Based for this opportunity and thanks to all the brides and grooms who came, had fun and made the event successful for all.
Please check back tomorrow for a recap of the after party at The Green Building.
