We’re big fans of the Brooklyn Bride blog, which isn’t so much about nuptials (eeuww!) in our home borough as it is about froufrou-free weddings anywhere. This week, the blog features a magazine-worthy engagement shoot of Alexis and Alex (which one’s which?) of Brooklyn, who look like they were dreamed up by a stock-photo agency to pop up when the words “hip” and “romance” are typed in: There she is, all bony and pale, in her terry-cloth romper with vintage cowboy boots. There they are, two-stepping in front of his LP collection in wooden crates. And how about an insouciant, limby smooch on the hammock? Perfect! A question: has anyone ever seen Alex and Alexis on the streets of Brooklyn?
Who are they, and what do they do? Or was this improbably photogenic couple invented by J. Crew? In addition to the dozen-plus pics on Brooklyn Bride, there are even more on the photographer’s site, which promises that the wedding will be in the “ultimate hip setting” in Brooklyn. Since the Marriott is out, we’re going with somewhere in the Navy Yard. Any other guesses? Or maybe we’ll just have to be on the lookout for a robin’s-egg-blue Dodge Dart with a Just Married sign, heading off to a charming fixer-upper somewhere in the Catskills, dog—and photographer—in the back seat.
