Winter brides + grooms, today is all about you! We're over the moon to be sharing this epic green + gold winter wedding styled shoot from the hosts of the IGNITE Workshop, full of snowy landscapes, a donut bar and a duck. Yes, a duck! The six local photographers behind the IGNITE workshop dreamed up a way to combine an educational seminar and hands-on shooting, and the result... well, the photos speak for themselves. The inspiration here is endless, and proof that even in the midst of winter, there is endless beauty outdoors.Read More
We're total suckers for the classics, and this New York City wedding from Amy Rizzuto is so gorgeous, we had trouble choosing our favorites. A timeless navy and white color palette, a modern but sophisticated dress and truly elegant decor is a recipe for perfection. The best part of this wedding is that it is completely season-less... If you didn't see the date on the invitation (or the leaves on the trees in Central Park), you'd never know it took place in the middle of the summer! Grab your coffee and get ready to fall as hard as we did for Tia and Anthony's epic Central Park Boathouse Wedding!
From Amy: There is something about a Central Park Boathouse wedding that pulls at my heartstrings. The natural wood beams, exposed brick, and the beauty of the surrounding park…it is all just so ROMANTIC! Lia and Anthony tied the knot here on an absolutely perfect summer day. After getting ready at her parent’s home in Madison, Lia headed into the city to marry her childhood sweetheart Anthony at Holy Trinity Church. Their Greek ceremony was truly spectacular and their rice exit was so much fun! Following a short trolley ride to the Boathouse, Lia and Anthony made their way to their favorite locations in Central Park for some gorgeous sunset portraits! Lia and Anthony were such joyous newlyweds and these moments were some of my favorites of the day. Cheers erupted from the deck of the Boathouse as Lia and Anthony entered their cocktail hour on a gondola! The night included plenty of Greek dancing, heartfelt speeches, and a delicious New York cheesecake for dessert. Yum. :)
We know you'll think that this wedding is incredible, but when you hear the story of Beth + Pete's wedding day (and how they kept their wedding location a SECRET!!), you'll love it even more. This stunning New York City wedding from Amy Rizzuto was held at The River Cafe with views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline, and everything from Beth's shoes to their yellow cab were iconic New York.
From Amy: Beth and Pete truly had a FABULOUS NYC wedding! They were married on June 29th, seven years to the day from when they began dating. This fun-loving couple, along with 35 of their closest family and friends, traveled from New Zealand and the UK for a day full of surprises. Beth and Pete decided to keep the venue and all the details of the day a secret from their guests! Excitement built as a school bus pulled up to the Ritz Carlton in Battery Park to escort guests to the venue. They took in views of South Street Seaport and the Statue of Liberty as they crossed over the Brooklyn Bridge. Cheers could be heard as they pulled up to the iconic River Cafe! The sun danced across the Manhattan skyline creating a breathtaking view for Beth and Pete’s ceremony. After a champagne toast at cocktail hour, a gospel choir showed up and gave an incredible performance! A vintage taxi drove Beth and Pete down cobblestone streets to our portrait locations where we captured some of the most beautiful sunset portraits EVER! Sweet toasts were given, fairy lights twinkled in the surrounding gardens, and a miniature chocolate Brooklyn Bridge made the perfect sweet treat at the end of the evening.
