As a native Brooklyner I am a huge booster for the borough. I have talked friends into leaving the city to move into Brooklyn and have pretty much told Dave that there’s no way I’d live anywhere else but Brooklyn. He’s a native too.
Since joining the wedding industry 10 years ago I have met so many amazing Brooklyn-based vendors that a bride doesn’t have to cross the borough’s namesake bridge to find everything she needs for her wedding. And non-Brooklyn brides should consider venturing out of Manhattan to plan their wedding.
A Brooklyn wedding doesn’t mean it’s catered by Junior’s and that your rehearsal dinner is at Nathan’s in Coney Island – though my dad would totally love these ideas.
Great Performances, one of the top caterers in the country – they are the in-house caterer for the Plaza’s Grand Ballroom – is hosting an unbelievable wedding event at BAM (the Brooklyn Academy of Music, 30 Lafeyette Avenue in the heart of Ft. Greene) on Sunday March 7th from 2-6pm When I first saw the BAM event space I was blown away, it really is an incredible venue.
Tickets are available at: greatperformances.com/brooklynbride and if you enter the code brooklynbride they’re free!
The list of vendors you’ll meet and get expert wedding advice from include:
Nine Cakes, Opalia Flowers, Root Stock & Quade, Xochitl Gonzalez from Always a Bridesmaid, Calligrapher Love, Jenna, Photographer Kelly Guenther and the band Two Dudes Playing Your Wedding.
There are so many other vendors but the list is too long for this post!
Hope to see you there!
