Now here’s a ballroom wedding I LOVE! Wow. So classy; it definitely can find a home in the “traditional” category but it does so with a style that is fresh and interesting and shows their personality. And they clearly had a good time!

Some details from the photographer, Polly Alexandre: “Catie’s stunning dress is Elato by Elie Saab available from Pronovias, shoes by Louboutin, and the vintage diamond earrings were a gift from the groom. With his wife so stylishly clad, Danny was not one to be outdone in the sartorial stakes. Rumour has it Danny’s shoes were flown over especially from Italy. There’s a story behind these I think, but Danny was a little coy about revealing quite how much effort went into his footwear. Both Catie’s sisters and her dad gave heartfelt speeches. Catie’s dad was like an actor with his command of the stage and his special words. He even made me cry.”

Ha, found this as I recently shot a wedding at Hyde Park, although in Leeds UK. The overcast north provided quite a different feel to this wedding. I get sooo jealous of the sunny US weddings! ps That car is aaaamazing

This is one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve seen! The lovely bride’s dress, her hair, the earrings…the CAR, and yes, even the groom’s shoes (wink, wink–they HAD to be mentioned of course!). The photography is amazing and I especially adore the last photo. Their embrace is so sweet and full of love! Thanks for the inspiration!

OMG I want those earrings!!! My engagement ring is an emerald and I have been looking for large green (emerald) earrings and haven’t found anything!! Where can I buy these?!

Hair + makeup + earrings = pure perfection. I want to get married all over again to copy this look.

Love the pictures… it’s unique to see more pictures of the back of the dress than the front. Seems to work specially well for this dress.
