Destination couples: one of our fave NY photographers is now offering no travel fees (& big discounts!) in a lot of Europe!

New York and Europe-based wedding photographer Carole Cohen has been on our team for YEARS now. We just keep seeing fabulous offbeat weddings submitted from her super thrilled clients. But I've got even bigger news about our resident bi-continental photographer. Carole is booking weddings in Europe full-time now, which means she's giving big ol' discounts AND no travel fees in these areas: Paris, the French Riviera, London, and Edinburgh. Plus, you can still snag her services in New York (and vicinity) and all over Europe.

This lovely & rainy Catskills wedding got flooded out but a last-minute venue switched saved it

Christine and Josh had planned a camping wedding, but on the day, it was pouring rain. Their campsite got flooded and they needed a plan B. Amazingly, a neighbor down the road heard about their wedding and offered their barn to them, if they didn't mind clearing it out. All their family and friends worked that morning to clean and decorate, and they even created log benches that morning. They made the best of the weather, handing out umbrellas, and ending the night by sending off fire lanterns. They had friends and family from all over the world, Lebanese food, doggos in a ties, and a REALLY gorgeous dress! Let's take a peek at this rainy Catskills wedding in New York…

What's month-of coordination (& why this "wedding fairy coordinator goddess" makes it SO easy!)

We introduced you to one of our event planning besties, Stephanie Gatton Events, last year and you guys made it your business to book her. Offbeat couples figured her background in stage managing and top-notch organizational skills would take their wedding planning to epic levels, and THEY DID.

With another year of planning kick-ass weddings under her belt (making it 10+ years total!), Stephanie has only gotten better. Let's see what she's been up to in the New York area (and WAY beyond!). (Hint: it's got a lot to do with month-of coordination AND a discount for you!)

This art gala wedding created an exhibition of art by family & friends!

The overall theme was Unity Through Art. I am an artist, and both my husband and I come from a long line of professional artists and grew up immersed in fine art culture. So, we decided to celebrate our wedding in the form of an art exhibit.

We held an art gala wedding that showcased the collective artwork of our closest family and friends and celebrated our local neighborhood of Astoria.

Wedding planning in a box? This wedding planning kit is the organizing tool that will save your sanity

Wedding planners are often a bit of a conundrum to newly engaged couples. What do they do? How can they help? Are they even affordable to me? We decided to speak to an amazing NYC-based wedding planner and partner of ours, Sarah at Pollyanna Events, to see what the whole deal was with wedding planners. Thing the is, Sarah introduced us to a whole NEW concept for couples who may not be able to afford the whole kit-and-caboodle of wedding planning. And I needed to introduce this to you because it.is.RAD.
