Lovely New York Wedding

I am a huge fan of Josh Goleman, so when I first saw these images from Tom and Nichole’s wedding, I was immediately dazzled. Josh has an amazing grasp on composition and lighting that make all of his images unique and timeless. How could you not love the casual elegance that he captures in all the details of this lovely wedding? Oh, and don’t get me started on these family portraits–so beautiful!

I have to admit that when I got engaged, the thought of planning a wedding was pretty overwhelming. I saw so many ideas I liked that I didn’t know where to start. My good friend, Jen Wood, offered to help organize all of that inspiration into our dream wedding. Inspired by our venue, The Metropolitan Building, she suggested we use vintage globes to pull in a Spring palette of pinks, yellows, and teals. Those globes became the jumping off point for everything else – we scoured ebay, flea markets and etsy for vintage suitcases, books and other knick-knacks to tie in a theme of travel. Also, the globe shape itself was mirrored in handmade fabric flower garlandthat hung over the dance floor (a project from Once Wed!) and in the globe-shaped glass candleholders that hung from the ceiling in a stage area. The results were breathtaking…

From handkerchief pendants that were hand-embroidered with “Cheers to Beers” to hang on the beer tubs to a vintage mailbox for guests to drop their cards in, Jen and I were fixated on the tiniest of details and it was those details that really made the day special. One of Jen’s best pieces of advice to me was to think of planning my wedding as throwing one great big party. It is a simple thought, but do everything with that in mind and it is guaranteed to be the most fun day of your life.

    Wow – i really love this wedding. Beautiful photographs, and it looks like such a personal, happy occasion. I love so many of the pictures there’s too many to mention, but my absolute favourites are the poloroid, the one of the groom lifting the bride up at the ceremony, and the bride being given advice by a lady wearing a peach outfit. Stunning.

    The group shots are great, they have a free casual air to them. Good use of chairs and groupings they make these shots natural and interesting. A hot location and some beautiful daylight doesn’t hurt either. Great work!
