Central Park Wedding Proposal

Categories Real Weddings + Resources

Chelsey and Chris are from Lafayette, Louisiana, and had never been to New York City before. Being first timers to the Big Apple, Chris decided it was a perfect time to propose to Chelsey and contacted Josh Wong Photography to document the historic event. The momentous spot: the gorgeous Bow Bridge in Central Park. We’re glad Chelsey said “yes” because these candid shots are full of fabulous emotion and beautiful backdrops. And how great that Chelsey wore her red coat that day for an added pop of color in this winter wedding proposal.

Intimate, Eclectic Texas Wedding

Categories Real Weddings

Eclectic. Romantic. Fantastic!

As soon as Justen popped the question to Renee’, they knew two things: they wanted to marry as soon as possible and they wanted to share their wedding day with their closest relatives. Within a short amount of time, both sets of parents flew in to Texas and they held the wedding in the small town where Justen’s family was originally from–and in the same church that Justen’s parents were married in. After the ceremony, they took some fun shots outside. They then continued the celebration at a steakhouse where Justen’s family have dined together many times in the past: another special place in their hearts and another perfect venue. Meaningful, emotional, we love everything about this small, intimate wedding–from Renee’s large bow headpiece over her beautiful, expressive eyes, to her short dress and cowboy boots. Oh, and Justen cleaned up pretty well too.

Thanks to Bethany Erin Photography for the sweet rendering of events. Enjoy.

Bethany Erin said, “I was in no way prepared for the overwhelming emotion that would fill the rest of the day. They were both so quiet and reserved (with the exception of the bride’s light-hearted interactions with her mother and sister), but when Renee’ walked down the aisle that day, she radiated with such happiness. Throughout the entire wedding, these two were just beaming, eyes brimming with tears and all smiles. After the ceremony, I could see that they just came alive with happiness in each other’s presence. They were so sweet, fun and filled with love and life in a way that just felt very deep, not superficial. It was like they really did complete each other.”

City Session and Surprise Proposal

Categories Real Weddings

Love love city sessions! There’s something so romantic about engagement pictures taken amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. Life is happening all around–yet time is forced to stand still while sweet moments get captured.

Our bride-to-be, Rebecca, may have thought that she was going to have just another normal day … but boyfriend Peter had other plans. He surprised Rebecca with a marriage proposal at the Navoo Grill in New Jersey’s downtown Red Bank borough, in front of family and friends. All captured by Nelson J. Photography, enjoy this vibrant fun in the city session. Congrats Rebecca and Peter!

Valentine’s Day Inspired Love Shoot

Categories Real Weddings

When you’re in love, every day is Valentine’s Day! Although it might be a little too early to celebrate the holiday, it’s always the right time to celebrate love! Check out Mimi and Ben’s Valentine’s Day- inspired love shoot from Christi Falls Photography. This fun couple wanted to celebrate the holiday their way. So how did they do it? They put on their funnest clothes–embellished with bow ties and Scrabble pieces. They brought a vintage couch out into a field, along with festive bunting, assorted props, and about a dozen heart-shaded red balloons. Then, they simply had fun with it all. That’s how.
