Wedding Anniversary Photography Shoot

Michelle and David just celebrated their six year anniversary, and to commemorate their love and commitment to each other they had their pictures taken. Luckily they had a one stop shop with Gina Meola Photography. Gina staged the entire shoot, baked the cake, designed the florals and of course photographed everything all in the same moment. Can you say creative?

I have to say the hanging looms pressed with unique fabrics that effortlessly hang from the trees are quite incredible. Those happen also to be a quick DIY project that Gina Meola Photography whipped up for the shoot. If you are interested in seeing more of this shoot you can click here. Let us just say a trunk of Manolo Blahniks are involved.

Wedding Flower Ideas From Denise Fasanello

We were so impressed with the flowers from our last NYC wedding from Denise Fasanello that we wanted to share with you a bit more of her work. Her studio is located in NYC and if you are too far away from this talented florist than if anything this will provide you with some much needed floral inspiration.

From soft pillow-like ranunculus to white crab apples this New York City florist does it up right. See more of her work at her blog Little Pheasant or visit her website by clicking here.

Simple & Elegant NYC Wedding

Krystal and Jonathan’s New York May wedding was simple and elegant. With gorgeous spring florals from Denise Fasanello and the perfect mint green wedding shoes. This NYC wedding from Missy Photography was first held at The Old St. Patrick’s on Prince and Mott Street. It is actually a very famous church in NYC it was the first Roman Catholic Church in New York City, the site of the famous Irish and American turf wars. But even more famously it was the church where the last scene in the Godfather was filmed.

Ranch Style Wedding Overflowing With Glamour

White Haute Photography is super hot! Be sure not miss all the super glamorous details from XOXO Bride.

So of course we had to share with you Scott and Kirsten’s ranch style wedding. Below is the wedding story from White Haute. Let us just say the population of the town where the wedding was held was a whopping 18.

My first pinch was on the drive to the wedding site, a town called Parkfield, population 18.  We drove for 15 miles on a one-lane road, passing horse pastures and thousands of cattle. The hand-painted wooden signs kept us on track, but when we reached the town itself, we blinked and missed it, heading another several miles past our destination. After a few dirt roads and some frantic phone calls with one half a bar of cell service, we realized our mistake and returned to the town. When you park, you look to your left and see one half of the town, the Parkfield Lodge. Turn to your right, and the other half greets you, the Parkfield Cafe.

Now this isn’t just any old town in the middle of nowhere, it happens to be the Earthquake Capital of the World, a town with more scientific equipment monitoring the ground than anywhere else on the planet. It was definitely a unique setting, but the details really made this wedding spectacular. The groom in his custom cowboy hat and boots, the handmade leather photo guest book the couple made themselves, the rustic feel of the celebration made us feel like part of a huge family, and it was amazing to witness. Thank you to the girls at XOXO Bride for putting on such a spectacular event.

Enjoy Scott and Kirsten’s ranch style wedding!
