Beauty in Brooklyn: An Amazing Styled Wedding Shoot by Munaluchi Bride Magazine




We’re so proud to present this styled shoot from our partners – Munaluchi Bridal Magazine. As the only magazine for brides of color in the United States, they continue to show diverse shades of beautiful brides and their new edition is no exception! You can pick up their FW 2013 issues online or out in newsstands throughout the US today!

This amazing shoot is featured in the new magazine and we’re happy to share it with you here too! What do you get when you put a handful of talented wedding professionals together with beautiful models and a gorgeous Brooklyn city backdrop?  Utter beauty.  This past summer, Munaluchi Bride Coterie members in the NYC area participated in a styled shoot inspired by vintage fashion, and the beauty of Brooklyn.  It was truly a pleasure to witness the creativity of this talented group.  As you can see from these gorgeous photos by Petronella Photography, their talent is limitless.

To celebrate the launch of this issue, Munaluchi is also giving away one of the Olivia headpieces featured in this editorial. Wanna win? See instructions on how to enter and more on Munaluchi! –

Enjoy and be inspired!

      Brooklyn is known for being hipster and artsy. Think Solange knowles. So the hair, the bike, the short wedding dress with hint of color. All very artsy , all very Brooklyn
