Brooklyn Based Wedding Crashers ::part three::
I have a few more vendors to share that I met at the show. First up, Red Table Catering! Chatting with the founder, Melanie, I learned that they specialize in customizing menus for every single one of their clients. Have a family recipe you want them to recreate? Not a problem! Want them to come up with something unique just for you? Even better. Here’s their table:
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Lion in the Sun, Park Slope’s coolest paperie. This stationery store carries a fabulous selection of wedding invitations (lots of Brooklyn & NYC themed options) as well as cards, gifts, stationery, and all the typical paper shop things. I love going in there to just look around and the owner, Melinda, is super. I’m always impressed that she recognizes me every time…that’s customer service at it’s best! I didn’t take any photos of them at the show but here’s some pictures from their website that gives you an idea of what they carry in the shop (you can check out the Lion in the Sun blog for more pictures):
Another fab vendor that I didn’t get a photo of was Megan at Hello Super 8. If you’ve thought about a wedding video but don’t want anything cheesy, check out their sample videos online! This nostalgic style of film stirs my emotions every time and is really worth considering if you want a piece of art to help you remember your wedding day. You can read a little more about them on their Hello Super 8 Blog!
The next table over featured 3 Photographers, a trio of talented photographers (surprise!) who were showing their work. I’d never heard of these guys but they had some amazing images! I’d love to work with them on an event and judging by their stellar WeddingWire reviews, brides like them too. You can see more samples of their work on their blog. Here’s Charles & Abdi:
Now HERE’s a cute idea! Tanesha from Small World Terrariums was showcasing some eco-friendly and re-usable centerpieces! Finally, a GOOD centerpiece that guests can take home and enjoy after the wedding. I thought these were pretty fabulous and better yet, they’re more affordable than I thought! She can add flowers to match your color scheme or you can leave them au naturel. Don’t you love these?
After seeing so much buzz about One Girl Cookies over the past couple years, I was really excited to see they had a cookie table set up for the show! Dawn was very friendly and said they often set up tables like this for weddings. They also have cute favor boxes if you don’t want a big display like this (but c’mon, who wouldn’t want a big display like this?):
They have an adorable shop on Dean Street in Cobble Hill if you suddenly need a cupcake or cookie fix. Just to make you jealous, yes, those pink macarons were as tasty as they look:
I also had the pleasure of meeting Radhika Chalasani, who runs Radhika Photography:
I unfortunately didn’t get any pictures of Radhika herself but she has a wonderful eye! I thought her photos were artistic, beautiful, and really captured the emotion of every moment. I stole this image from her blog and thought it was worth of sharing:
Isn’t that photo adorable?!? It’s certainly not as artistic or stylized as the rest of the photos on Radhika’s blog but it made me smile anyhow. Definitely go check out her work if you’re looking for a photographer!
Finally, The Lascivious Biddies performed a great set of the ‘cocktail pop’ on the stage and really entertained the crowd!

I met Deidre, one of the Biddies, and she was really sweet. They even gave everyone free copies of their album! If you’re looking for some fabulous music for your wedding, why not consider this lovely, local, and very talented group? Here’s a video I found online of them performing a song called ‘Betty’:
That’s all I have on the Brooklyn Based Wedding Crashers show! I met a couple other fantastic vendors who I’ll be featuring on the blog later this week. Be sure to check back!
