Brides Local Magazines is looking for an engaged couple in the New York City/New Jersey area to appear in the Spring/Summer issue's "Find Our Wedding Style" story. You can check out an example of the feature on our Facebook page and in the current issue on stands now, but in a nutshell here's how it works:
We photograph an engaged couple's apartment. Based on elements from their home (pictures, furniture, knick-knacks, etc.) we create ideas for their wedding. The couple is not required to use any of our ideas, and it's okay if they already have elements of their wedding in place. The purpose of the story is to show readers how items from their day to day life can inspire great ideas, and how their interior design aesthetic can be translated into wedding details. No fancy digs needed—what we're looking for is a distinct style we'll have fun working with. All that's required from the couple is an afternoon for our team to come over and take photos. This story will run in all 16 of our markets including *Brides New York *and Brides New Jersey.
If you're interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The following should be included in the email:
-any thoughts you already have about your wedding
-a brief description about what they feel their style is
-five to seven photos of their home (a few wide shots and close ups of any details they feel are particularly "them") and one picture of themselves so we can get a sense of who they are and what their
living space is like.
To be considered, submissions must arrive by Monday, August 17th. Thanks for your help and I look forward to hearing from you! —Leigh Crandall, managing editor, Brides New York
