It's official: Sparkly 'maids and the perfect cheeky pose for a glam NYC wedding make the ideal picture-perfect photo op. From the looks of their hashtag, Ali and Stan 'swiped right' for the last time, and finally made it official over the weekend. Seriously though, these sparkly mismatched bridesmaid dresses are to die for — and don't even get us started on the sleek, long-sleeved gown for the bride! A match made in NYC-wedding heaven, that's for sure.
"Rain, rain go away" is what they usually say, but in Courtney and Mike's case, the rain was a welcome situation — at least as far as photos go.That $10 clear umbrella purchase is both a photographer and a bride's best friend — so make sure you don't skimp on the details if there is a chance of rain in your wedding forecast. Your photos will thank you, as evidenced by this couple's stunning sneak preview.
When a speck of sunlight shines through during your wedding portraits, it's only natural to want to sweep your bride off of her feet and carry her over the threshold! Even though it was raining in the U.S., New Zealand was looking pretty grand over the weekend, as evidenced by this sweet couple's snap.
That moment when you sit back in your getaway car, incredulous, and say "WHOA, we did it!" — unforgettable. Case in point: Louisa and Myles experiencing just that — the emotion on their faces screams total happiness. Their photographer, Rebecca Brooker, noted that "The sun shone every time Louisa stepped outside, in between rain and hail and Myles looked like a prince!" If only every bride could get that lucky — rain for good luck and warm sun for good hair.
In 2016, many couples' first thoughts post-ceremony nuptials? Lemme take a 'Just Married' selfie! Looking at these adorable grooms stopping to snap their first selfie as married men, we're sure it was a good one. Thankfully this sweet duo had the help of their photographer to capture the moment within the moment — complete with bubbles and their adoring guests by their sides.
Alison and Justin are all smiles exiting the church — ready to greet their guests and dance the night away at the Liberty House in Jersey City. There's something about that post-ceremony feeling that can't be rivaled: You did it, you're excited to enjoy the rest of the night, and it's time for cocktail hour!
