Wish I had time today to go through all my images from yesterday but here's one to hold you over until I do! The florals were to die for, including this gorgeous installation at the chapel entrance by @rosaspinafloral. So much wedding inspo at this shoot!

Did you see my blog post this week on wedding shoes? I shared over 75 different shoes to inspire your shoe shopping - check it out at the link in my bio. In the meantime, tell me: heels, wedges, or flats? Which would you choose for your wedding day?
Shout-out to all the brave guys who aren't afraid to travel with an engagement ring in their pocket while they go through airport security and have it almost burn a hole through their pocket on a long flight next to their unsuspecting soon-to-be bride. Like Andrew, who carried Alex's engagement ring all the way to New Zealand so he could surprise her with an epic proposal. 💕 #idalialovestory
Having photographed over 200 weddings to date, I've heard quite a few #howtheymet stories over the years, but Jaime and Frank's will forever stand out! Frank was sitting at a Hoboken bar when Jaime went to order a drink. He tapped her on the shoulder and used the most unique pick-up line of all time: “How tall are you?” At 5'11", Jaime was used to men commenting on her height, but I bet she never imagined that question would lead to connecting with her future husband! Love re-living Jaime and Frank's story today as I get ready to see these two in their new roles as parents! Can't wait to capture them again, but this time with their sweet newborn boy in their arms. 💕 Venue @wotwfrogbridge Photography @idaliaphotography Florals @lindasflorist Hair + Makeup @pinitupbridal Wedding Dress @kellyfaetanini @gabriellabridal
The prettiest bride in the most classic and timeless setting. Who can guess where this portrait was taken? Bonus points if you know the name of the building, too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photography @idaliaphotography Hair + Makeup @somethingyouonsite Florals @marquisfloralsbykim Wedding Dress @pronovias
If you love shoes, you’re going to love today’s blog post!

Whether you’re looking for bling or simplicity, there’s a shoe for every taste. There are high heels and low heels and wedges and flats. Even some bridal sneakers for those of you who want your feet to be comfy once you hit the dance floor. Check out the full post on my blog at the link in bio!
Going through wedding withdrawal over here so I'm spending some time this morning re-living this gorgeous day! Erin and Tim made for the most timeless of couples on the gorgeous grounds of Wilson Hall and that @eveofmilady wedding gown will always be a favorite. Those embroidered cap sleeves were just so stunning! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photography @idaliaphotography Hair @bellaangelbrides Florals @marquisfloralsbykim Makeup @the_perfectlook Wedding Dress @kleinfeldbridal @eveofmilady
Who's starting the week out with some wedding planning? Here's a tip for all the brides: your bridesmaids will love you for letting them choose their own style on your big day. I'll forever love the look of Caroline and her bridesmaids in mismatched solid and floral dresses! A few tips to nail the mismatched bridesmaids look: 1️⃣ Consider combining dresses from different designers. Caroline made it happen with the help of these three: @jennyyoonyc @joannaaugust @bellabridesmaids. 2️⃣ Get paint swatches at your local Home Depot or Lowe's to see how different colors will look together. 3️⃣ Give your ladies a few guidelines about length, sleeve style, and material. 4️⃣ Send your bridesmaids different examples of dresses you love that would look good together to give them ideas on where to start. Past brides, do you have any other tips to share?
I may not have new weddings to share with you right now but here's a favorite from the archives! Stefanie and Michael wanted quintessential Brooklyn wedding photos and they got their wish, even on a busy summer weekend in DUMBO. From views of the Brooklyn Bridge to the Manhattan Bridge to dealing with the hustle and bustle of a popular Brooklyn spot, the setting was so varied and fun and I wish I could go back to this carefree, pre-COVID day. 😂
