Pink Wedding at Central Park Boat House | Real Wedding of Alicia & Nate

Love all the pink elegant wedding details in this wedding submitted by the amazing Christopher Duggan Photography!
Here is more from Christopher Duggan: You could tell Alicia & Nate have a lot of fun together. Their officiant, one of their close friends, told a couple of stories during the ceremony that poked fun at the couple and everyone enjoyed the laughs together. The laughter continued when we found a motorcycle parked near the Central Park Boathouse. Apparently Alicia loves motorcycles and loves to pose on stranger’s bikes whenever she can…
Alicia & Nate’s wedding was pure joy. Everything looked beautiful, especially the wedding cake, which was given to them by their aunt whose distinguished taste for cakes insisted on the best: Sylvia Weinstock.

A Vintage New York Real Wedding with a School Theme

I'm loving this wedding of Kristy and Evan! The happy couple met at a self defense class taught by Evan 6 years ago, and has fun with the school theme during their photography portrait session! I also love all the vintage and moss details in their decor.
Kristy and Evan had a perfect wedding plan to get ready at the cottages at Three Village Inn, take a trolley over to The Long Island Museum for a beautiful outdoor ceremony and then back to Three Village Inn to celebrate. Torrential rains didn't stop these two! Evan huddled under an umbrella waiting to see his beautiful Bride while the entire bridal party and family watched out the windows of the trolley, so adorable! After an exciting first look at each other we all shuffled off for the ceremony. After that Kristy could care less if she got wet and ran across the street in the rain, needless to say all traffic stopped to see the bride :)

Tara & Brett's Real Wedding in Land's End | A NY Beach Wedding

Thank you to lovely photography by Sandi Rufo Photography for this lovely submission!
Love the sea foam green bridesmaid dresses and the pretty pink and cream floral bouquets. They complimented each other so nicely.

Here is more from Sandi: Tara and Brett's long distance engagement has finally come to an end! Lands End is one of my favorite venues that has everything Long Island Weddings are about, Beach access, outdoor ceremonies, great food and fits more than 300 guests with a quaint hotel right next door on the water. What more can you ask for! Tara and Brett really had quite the family affair with her 9 siblings, that's right, I said 9. And all of Brett's collage friends really got crazy on the dance floor! This wedding rocked the South Shore that night into the next day! Tara, a softball and snowboard enthusiast and Brett a baseball and skier were destined to be together and met in their freshman year in college. After 3 years of dating Brett staged the proposal on Mount Snow a favorite spot for the two. And Tara said yes, of course!

Real Weddings | Courtney & John's Pretty Summer Hamptons Wedding

Loving this pretty Hamptons wedding submitted by Sandi Rufo Photography! It was a perfect day for a beach wedding in July for Courtney and John in Westhampton's Oceanbleu Bath and Tennis. Courtney and John share a love of furry friends, especially their two dogs Riley and Frank who were unfortunately unable to attend the wedding, but were there in more ways than one. Courtney made sure to be photographed with her pooch before the nuptials and each table had a photo of their dogs and they were even on the cake. So cute! The wedding nuptials were held at the waters edge and they later held a beach bonfire at sunset. So lovely.

Real Weddings | A New York Wedding at The W Hotel

Love this wedding submitted by Brooklyn Beloved! Primarily a photographer for Elle, Details, Fortune, Marie Claire and others photographed a good industry friend's wedding, Hali.

Hali's memories of her wedding:
I was so wrapped up in planning the wedding and doing it in a time crunch that I told the string quartet that was going to play while I walked down the aisle to play the wrong song. It was supposed to be the beautiful beginning of You Can't Always Get What You Want by the Rolling Stones and in a rush I told them I wanted I Can't Get No Satisfaction and when the doors opened and I walked in we were all in shock to hear the opening chords of Satisfaction. It made for a rock and roll wedding for sure and will never forget it. Still worked for me, but I think my mom is still in shock.

My father in law's band, Offtrax, from VA rocked the house the house the rest of the night. It was special to know the band and was a serious rock and roll wedding. Eric Bazilian of the Hooters who wrote "What If God Was One OF Us" was a guest and was so great to hear him perform the song live! My father in law and Offtrax also prepped and learned the song "They Love Each Other" by the Grateful Dead for Benji and I for our wedding song which was really special and sounded amazing!!

We were married on the Jewish holiday of Purim which was another great reason to celebrate and the reason for all of the masks and noise makers on the table which are tradational for the holiday. 

The huge blizzard of 2010 was the day before and of the wedding and they had to shovel all of the snow off of the balconies of our suites in order to take photos. You can't tell, but there was 2 feet of snow on the ground that day! Thank goodness only a few guests got stranded and the W was as organized as they were!

Venue: W Hotel, 49th Street
Dress: Reem Acra (same dress Taylor Swift wore to the 2009 Country Music Awards)
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Lighting/MC: Dancejock Productions
Band: Offtrax
