I’m so excited to FINALLY share Pamela + Ryan’s wedding photos from The Foundry in LIC!! You are seriously going to swoon over this incredible wedding which was featured on the oh-so-beautiful wedding blog Elizabeth Anne Designs yesterday! Pamela’s wedding was sort of like if raw & industrial had a baby with soft & romantic. In order to enhance the raw space of The Foundry, Pamela chose a clean color palette for her wedding party (gray & navy) and then threw in pops of mint, metallic gold, and silver. Literally every single detail you can think of was covered! It was almost like a scavenger hunt trying to find all the super cute personal touches the couple added to the day. I mean, the girl had like SIX different invitation suites (all gorgeous!) that she designed herself! Amazing!! And while details were super important to this wedding planner bride, she still says “the ceremony led by our good friend; the hilarious speeches by our best men, maid of honor, and parents; and the fact that I’m married to Ryan Meiser…far exceeded anything I could have ever dreamed up!” Exactly as it should be! :)

Pamela started her day with a Bridal luncheon at ICI Restaurant with the closest women in her life. They all wore white while she donned a bright coral dress to match the decor. What a fun way to begin the wedding day!

Ryan and his groomsmen spent their morning at Fellow Barber in Brooklyn…who says girls get to have all the fun??

How amazing are these New York/Frank Sinatra inspired wedding invites?! Down to the stamps!

It was only fitting that their First Look would have a great city view in the background!

I can’t get enough of this Momofuku Milk Bar cake, mostly because of the adorable mint stand & cloche!

A little southern charm mixed in! :)

Is this real life? 

One of my favorite elements of the reception decor was the table “numbers!” Pamela loved the idea of her guests signing wine bottles as their guest book, but she took it one step further. Each table number was also the anniversary year that they plan to open the wine, AND the label of each wine bottle matched that year’s traditional anniversary gift (Year one – Paper…Year two – Cotton…and so on).

Congratulations again Pamela & Ryan! Thanks for inviting me into your wedding adventure! And I wish I had like a thousand more of those pretzels – YUM!! :)

I’ve been sooo behind on blogging my recent press, but I’m trying to catch up! :) I’ll start with sharing that Iliza + Alan’s GORGEOUS wedding day was featured on Rustic Wedding Chic this summer! Their wedding was full of incredible personal details, like the couple canned hundreds of pickles for their guests to take home as favors (and boy were they yummy!). Check out all the pretties over on Rustic Wedding Chic!

Congratulations Steph & Steve!! You may remember these cuties from their Brooklyn engagement session last year! I’m so excited to finally share their wedding day! I call Steph my little DIY Queen – she’s AMAZING! She pretty much hand-made every single design element in her wedding, and her vision for a fall-inspired rustic and romantic wedding was spot on! From Jenny Yoo bridesmaids dresses in various shades of plum, lavender, and raisin to the burlap sacks of coffee that each guest took home, every detail was intentional and beautiful! Hurricane Joaquin may have made an appearance, but that only makes the day that much more memorable! All the best stories involve a little adventure right?! ;)

All the cute girls in their matching plaid! Love it!

I just love this “First Look” moment between Steph and her father!

Their dog Blake was very curious about what Chris was doing with Steve’s shoes! :)

The couple were wed at Holy Name of Mary in Valley Stream, NY. 

Artichokes, succulents, and wheat…oh my! 

I love this cake topper from Better Off Wed!

Remember these beautiful faces?! I photographed Donna & Oleg’s wedding back in 2013! The funniest part about this photo is that I was wearing this exact dress at their wedding TWO YEARS AGO!! Good thing Kate Spade never goes out of style! :)

Oh yes, that is grandpa catching the garter!

I don’t always photograph families, but when I do it’s the Calabrese family!! Keri & Dan were one of my wedding couples back in 2012 and they have since recommended me to everyone they know getting married! It’s been an honor to photograph so many of Keri’s friends and I couldn’t think of a better way to thank her than to celebrate her new family with a photo session! Little Lucas is cute as can be, and I’m sure his sister in mommy’s belly will be just as adorable! :)

I had to sneak in a photo of Keri’s watch…it’s just too cute! Also, I love that Keri created these beautiful pink ribbon dream catchers as a way of including their soon-to-be daughter in the session! #adorbs

Thank you Keri for all the support you’ve given me over the years! You trusted me in the early years of my business and that means more to me than you’ll ever know!!! Love you guys, and I love watching your family grow!! Congrats you cuties! <3

“Their eyes met and they stared together at each other, alone in space.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Frank and Christie’s wedding was oh-so-glamorous and elegant, similar to the parties Gatsby would throw! Which is fitting considering The Great Gatsby is one of Christie’s favorite books and movies. The day was speckled with black, gold, ivory, and blush. The two were married at the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark, NJ – which felt like a mini-replica of Notre Dame! Afterwards, they celebrated their wedding at The Venetian in Garfield, NJ. Congrats Christie & Frank!!

Christie chose to have a “First Look” with her father! So sweet!!

Such beauties!!!

Seriously Christie, you wowed everyone with your beauty!

Love that I was finally able to check “awesome groom smoking a cigar” off my dream shot list!! Frank, you’re so boss! ;)

Special thank you to my dream team Lauren and Chris for assisting with this wedding! xoxo!

    Carol Cunningham-Nicosia - I am so impressed with the pictures. You are so talented and have so many unbelievable ideas!!! Absolutely beautiful/stunning. I am so excited to see all the proofs. Thank you so much for capturing so many special moments at my daughter and son-in-laws beautiful wedding!!!! :)ReplyCancel

Man, this is such a special wedding for me to share! My family is pretty complicated, but in a nutshell, this is my brother Billy who I haven’t seen in over 10 years. When he wrote me to tell me he was getting married, I thought “How is that possible?! You’re still only 11 years old?!” Seeing him now as an adult marrying the love of his life was definitely emotional! It was such a joy to be there with him and to see so many family members that I haven’t seen since I was a kid. Who said I’m allowed to get OLD?!?! Congrats Billy & Jordin!! <3

From Berkeley to Brooklyn, these California babes were sooo much fun at their engagement session!! Meet Jeremy and Lauren, two cuties who endured a red-eye flight from the West Coast (with one sprained ankle!) for an amazing stroll through Prospect Park complete with piggy back rides! After the incredible time we had, I’ve begun my own countdown for their wedding next year at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY! CANNOT WAIT! :)

Chris and I loved adventuring with Betty and Adam during their Skylands Manor and the New Jersey Botanical Gardens engagement session! It was a perfect day, and I’m sensing many board game nights in our future!! :)

So pretty Betty!!

Sunset in the garden was an absolutely magical way to end the session!! Can’t wait for the wedding next October!! :)
