Lion in the Sun (who runs the amazing Postscript Brooklyn which focuses on online wedding invitations) is having a great looking event at their Park Slope, Brooklyn store!

PaperParties_FINAL(gray)_042413

We’ll be hosting alongside Viva Max Kaley of Viva Max Weddings here at our Brooklyn shop, and will be joined by a group of wonderful New York wedding vendors:

  • Michelle Edgemont, Event Designer
  • Moss & Isaac, Photographer
  • SB Beauty, Make-Up Artist
  • Jarrell Entertainment, DJs & Performers
  • Haute So Sweet, Cake Artist
  • Jack From Brooklyn, Sorel Liqueur

At Thursday’s event, we’ll be teaching brides-to-be how to plan a wedding in seven words, a concept developed by Lion in theSun’s owner and visionary, Melinda Morris.  The entire event, from the décor to the snacks to the music, will be inspired by Bella Figura’s new Viceroy suite, and the seven descriptive words we’ve selected.  In addition to picking their own seven words, brides will have the opportunity to sip, snack, and get tips and advice from the participating vendors.

Looks amazing — if you’re in the area, make sure to check it out!

Phew, been a long time since I’ve done a meetup.f But Alicia from Akimbo is going to be in town (all the way from Australia!) so it seems like the perfect time to have another!

Come join me at Etcetera Wine Bar in the San Francisco
Mission at 7pm next Wednesday, December 19th — WeddingLovely will be buying wine and appetizers, and the wine bar has food if you’d like to get dinner with us, or eat beforehand.

RSVP on Facebook, and I hope you can come!

 

I am so lucky to have snagged an Altitude Summit SLC ticket (sold out in hours!), one of the premier design and lifestyle blogging conferences in the world. I’m looking forward to schmoozing with some of my blogging idols (Meg Keene! Anne Sage! Melanie Blodgett! More!) as well attend all-the-sessions-that-I-can so I can continue to grow and improve this blog and the entire WeddingLovely network.

Unfortunately, WeddingLovely isn’t a bigwig company (yet) and with the conference ticket costing $524.95 (not to mention plane tickets from California and lodging), I’m looking for companies to help sponsor my trip to Salt Lake City in January.

Benefits for the sponsor:

  • I will be blogging all my experiences from the conference on the blog (just like my coverage of the National Stationery Show) and sponsors will be listed, linked, and thanked in every post. Post will also be shared throughout the month via Twitter (4,100+ followers), and Facebook (1,300+ likes).
  • Sidebar advertising for the conference sponsor for at least three months or more, depending on sponsorship amount.
  • Dedicated post about the company or brand and why it’s awesome here on the blog, similarly shared via our social media outlets mentioned above.
  • Additional ideas welcomed by the sponsor — use your product at the conference? Put your brand on my business cards? I welcome your ideas!

Help send me to Salt Lake City for Altitude Summit SLC! Email me at [email protected] and we can chat more.

 

Check out what’s happening this Saturday in San Francisco! The Unveiled Bridal Style Revealed show will be at the Metreon from 11am to 3:30pm, featuring a Vera Wang Bridal runway show and vendors from all over Northern California.

Tracy will be heading to the event with her camera and documenting the amazing vendors for posts next week, but you should come see the show in person too! Tickets are $30, buy them here. Hope to see you there!

We shared the lovely details of our Shindig with you yesterday– today it’s on to the party! It was so exciting to see Etsy Labs fill up with talented wedding industry folks. We were able to meet so many vendors that we only knew through email and twitter. It is SO NICE to be able to put faces with names. It was wonderful to meet you all. We hope to see you again next year!

We shared the awesome video from Fairfax Films, the oh-so-fun photo booth images from The Magnolia Photo Booth Company and now it’s time to share the entire event with you courtesy of WeddingPhotoLove’s Carrie Draghi Photography. Before I bust out the photos, I want to share this little tidbit with you about how awesome Carrie is. The poor poor girl got food poisoning the night before our Shindig. If anyone has ever had this horrible thing happen to them, you must know how much you feel like dying. But Carrie, she was a trooper; She came, she smiled, she photographed – she rocks! It truly shows her love and dedication to her job. THANK YOU Carrie.
