The Bridal Wishlist Outing: A Fab Weekend

What a weekend. I had a ball and the weather could not have been better. For a full recap head on over to The Capitol Fashionista.

Here's what I did on Saturday. What a Saturday!

Wow! What a Saturday. Despite missing my early train, I did finally get to Brooklyn to the fab Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO for an amazing event, The B-List organized by Vané Broussard (The Brooklyn Bride) and Anne Chertoff (Wedded Bits and From "I Will" to "I Do"). What a fantastic job these beautiful women did organizing this event! They pulled together one of the best planned events that I have attended in years. There was great ambience, great food, great wine, and great company. There were discussions about a range of topics like blogging as a business. It was so good to finally put faces to women that I talk to via email or read their blogs daily. It was also great to ask about their experiences in the blogosphere. Sometimes you can feel a little isolated from your fellow bloggers. We left the conference and headed over to Michelle Preli, editor-in-chief of for a wine tasting(along with chocolate and cheese) produced by Swirl Events. It was great to meet Michelle and to kick back, taste a little wine and really get to know my blogging colleagues. When I left, I felt like I had made new friends and felt very connected to my sisters in wedding blogging.

THE SPACE - Galapagos Art Space
The space in in Brooklyn in the DUMBO area between both the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges. What a cool area and a great space. When I first arrived, I thought the space was an odd place to have a wedding but by 3 pm when we were packing up to leave, they were setting up for a wedding and boy did it all make sense to me then. What an amazing space to have a wedding.

THE FOOD - Sterling Affair Catering
The food was catered by Sterling Affair Catering. It was so delish. There were tasty wraps and sandwiches and pasta dishes and other yummy dishes. I would highly recommend them for your next event. I wanted seconds!

THE CAKE - Mark Joseph Cakes
Okay. I absolutely detest raspberries but Mark Randazzo has made me a believer. Any person that can make me crave raspberries, can make me a cake anyday, any time. We got to taste one of his masterpieces and I must say that it was to die for. He made the raspberry filling taste like a little piece of heaven. Definitely had two pieces. LOL

THE PHOTOGRAPHER - Jenny Ebert Photography
Jenny Ebert is one of the most delightful and beautiful women that I have ever met. Oh, and by the way, she is an amazing photographer. She documented the day in a way that will provide all of us with such wonderful lasting memories. I can't wait to see the pictures. As soon as the pictures are posted, I will post them here. For now, go to her site and see for yourself what an eye she has for capturing that moment.

THE GOODIES - Thoughtful Day and love*jenna
You have to love goodie bags and boy did we have goodie bags. Our very own B-List tote bag was designed by Thoughtful Day and I adore my bag. It got a little dirty when it rubbed up against my car and I was having a little cow. It is so beautiful, I didn't want it to get dirty. LOL! Our name tags were handwritten in gorgeous calligraphy by Jenna of love*jenna. Need a calligrapher, check her out! Beautiful work.
