2018 Wedding Crashers Highlights

March 18, 2018

Wassup, Brooklyn?! If you hung out at Wedding Crashers on Sunday, March 11th - chances are you had a blast eating, drinking, and taking pictures to your hearts content! The Green Building and 501 Union are Instagrammable locations all day everyday, but visiting during Wedding Crashers is where you could imagine what your own wedding will look like.

Daniela, Love Storyteller & Wedding Officiant AND Carissa, Event Planner from Campbell Events


If you said HI to one or both of us, chances are you got a cookie from Cookies for a Cause with our biz cards, Vow Mad Libs, and a couple of wedding tips. I like to share this one with couples:


Write love notes to each other that you can stick on your fridge or bathroom mirror (basically someplace you can see everyday) reminding yourselves of why you love each other and why you chose to plan this wedding. Maybe you want to celebrate your journey with all of your favorite people. Maybe you want your friends and family to travel in from all corners of the world so you can dance the night away together. Maybe you want to do what you love that day -

make-out lots, eat well, drink plenty, and have an unforgettable time with incredible people!


Whatever your reasons are, these love notes are a great reminder that will help get you through the wedding planning stressors that can drive us out of our minds!

If you're looking for a chill event planner who can make your vision come to life, make sure to chat with Carissa from Campbell Events. She's worked at both 501 Union and The Green Building for weddings and other fun celebrations, so she can practically walk you through anything.

As for me, my mission is to obliterate boring wedding ceremonies! I'm all about sharing your story in a fun, meaningful way and personalizing that incredible moment between you. After all, THAT'S the moment you're officially getting married so it should be awesome, right?!
