Not Wedding Styled Shoot – Wedding Proposal and Surprise Romantic Dinner

Modern Wedding Photography is excited to be participating in the Not Wedding on September 23rd, 6:30 PM at The Green Building in Brooklyn. The Not Wedding is a bridal show alternative in the form of a big, fake wedding.  All the vendors have to use their talents to bring the show together. One of my contributions was to do a styled shoot. I have my current stable of talent I could have used for the shoot, but I thought it would be great to bring on the other vendors who are participating in the September Not Wedding event. I’m so glad I did. We had a great time working together and I got to work with such a fun and exceptional group of wedding pros. What is wonderful about Not Wedding is that they want you to connect with other vendors as well as engaged couples. I thought it would be fun to do a surprise romantic dinner on the street. My husband is really getting into cooking these days. That might have been a little subconscious inspiration. One of my favorite places to shoot are the streets of NYC, especially Manhattan. In 2004 a documentary featured my photography and how I use NY as my backdrop. Outside with the elements is where I’m most comfortable. You see the old timers playing cards on the street in the outer boroughs all the time, but not too many Manhattanites doing a DIY dinner by the hydrant.  I thought, why is this guy in our shoot planning this dinner? So I figure the whole thing might make more sense if it was a wedding proposal.

A week before the shoot I found the accordion at an estate sale. It came with a Steve Urkel doll, too funny. I wanted a street musician for the shoot, but who would it be and what would they play? The accordion was the perfect accessory for our shoot. My godson Max wanted to try it on. One look at him trying the accordion on and  I knew I had my photo shoot busker.  It was so hard to select images for this post. I wanted to make sure each vendor shined and there were so many beautiful contributions made by the team. I wanted to give a special thank you to Alden and Geoff for being our couple for the shoot. They just met on set and they were perfect together. The camera loves you two:) Alden works for Ryan Brown Catering, (they will be cooking for Not Wedding). Geoff is a friend of Nicole and Tom from The Arrangement, who stepped in at the last minute. Thank you so much! Thank you to Allie Webber from Not Wedding who loved my idea right away and said, “Go do it”. Thank you Leah from Color Pop Events for helping with planning and coordinating logistics. Thank you to Liz from Octavia & Brown for your beautiful china and dinner table props.  Thank you to Tom and Nicole from The Arrangement for your stunning florals, beautiful styling and for getting Geoff for our shoot. Thank you to Ryan Brown of Ryan Brown Catering for your gorgeous food. I hope the photographs show how delicious it all is. Thank you Kim from Ryan Brown for coming early and setting up the meal on Liz’s precious china. Thank you so Much Nikki from Corinna Beau : Letterpress + Design for the fabulous stationary and especially that incredible Menu. Thank you for going with the flow everytime I kept thinking of new ideas and giving you more work to do. Thank you to Styles on B  and Nicole Sievers Makeup Artistry for doing Alden’s hair and makeup. She is a beautiful woman and you got her all camera ready for us. I also wanted to thank my dear friend Judy for talking the day off work to help out and chaperone her son the accordion player.  OXOX Denise    Formal Vendor Credits are at the end of the post.

Guastavino’s Wedding, Megan and Derek’s fun filled day!

We headed to Grand Central Terminal where Megan and Derek want to have their first look. One consequence of walking through such busy terminal is your wedding dress will get dirty no matter how hard you try to keep it clean. Even if your wedding planner is helping you all the way. Eventually she/he will have to let go of the dress and its photo time. By some type of divine intervention on a Saturday afternoon no commuters got in our way, (or we didn’t get in theirs). There weren’t any other wedding parties around either.  I feel like each one of my client’s weddings has a little bit of fairy dust sprinkled on it. No matter what, everything always comes together.  It’s always great to have some time alone with the bride and groom before the wedding and family formals.  We were able to get all of the family photos done outside Guastavino’s before the wind storm. After that no one dared to step outside of the venue. The romantic, candlelight ceremony took place at the venue as well as the action packed reception. It was an exuberant day and my assistant and I were thrilled to be part of it. Thank you Meghan and Derek for being so wonderful to work with! – Denise

The Knot Hall of Fame- Modern Wedding Photography is Honored by The Knot

Modern Wedding Photography has been a Knot Best of Weddings Pick for many years. I have to thank  The Knot and our amazing clients for all of their support. In 2014 The Knot implemented their hall of fame. As the owner of Modern Wedding Photography I am thrilled to be a recipient of this wonderful award and proud to be inducted during the inaugural year. I have been shooting weddings since the early 90s. I would shoot the weddings of many of my editorial clients. I always try to bring my magazine photography experience to my wedding photography. It’s one of the many things that make Modern Wedding Photography different. I believe it was 2001 or so when I first started working with the Knot. At the time I think there were only a few photographers in the Long Island section, or any New York section. It is unbelievable how many people have entered the field of wedding photography over the years.  The internet has given you instant access to so many wedding photographers, but now you have more studios to cull through than ever. I imagine it must be so overwhelming trying to find a photographer to photograph your wedding day. Most people do not have a deep knowledge of photography. How do you decide which photographer to use? What are the studio’s credentials? How do they deal with a plethora of lighting and weather situations? Are they truly telling the story of their client’s wedding day with their images. In 20 years you will still love your wedding album? This means staying away from the current clichés, gimmicks and Photoshop trends of the moment. Photographing your wedding day is a huge responsibility, as well as an honor for me to document. I’m always around to answer all of your questions. Please feel free to call me today for a consultation. 516.823.7315 or 212.332.9696.

Carlyle on the Green, Farmingdale, NY Meghan and Sean’s Wedding

Wedding inspiration via Meghan and Sean’s fabulous wedding day.  After the ceremony at St. Rosa of Lima in Massapequa, we headed to Johnny McGorey’s for a few pints. No, we really stopped there for a few photos. The local pub, is where Meghan and Sean reconnect several years after high school. We got some fun shots at the bar before heading over to Carlyle on the Green. I’m a big fan of lavender/purples and a splash of color on the cake, I’m in heaven.  The  ballroom at Carlyle was extra stunning due to the dramatic lighting.  The right lighting for your evening affair is so important. It sets the mood for the reception and can add depth to your photographs. Scroll below to see some wonderful images from Meghan and Sean’s wedding.

Thank you Meghan and Sean for being so wonderful to work with. I had a lot  fun on your wedding day.  I’ll always remember uncle Kevin singing, “Love Train” with Code-Bleu and everyone getting up to join the train.- Best, Denise

LOVESICK EXPO – Music Hall of Williamsburg-Brooklyn- NY

I love weddings, but I am not a big fan of weddings shows. Most wedding shows lack the personal touch that my clients and I crave. They usually try to appeal to everyone. As the old saying goes, “A friend to all is a friend to none!” There is a new wave of wedding shows that I know my clients would love to attend – Lovesick Expo being one of them. They are smaller, usually in fun locations and the vendors are carefully selected by the coordinators of the event. The last point is the most important! These shows have a specific point of view and want you to express who you are as a couple. They want to reach the independent minded couple who aren’t committed to a formula of what a wedding should be.

So, design the life you want to have and the wedding you want to remember, (that’s one of my motto’s). I had the chance to meet with the vendors featured below. What they all had in common was they were fun, friendly, personable and highly creative. Links to the vendors are also included, so give them a call and see how they can help you create a fabulous wedding day. My decision to blog about Saturday’s Lovesick Expo was spontaneous. The images were taken with my point and shoot, (they have a little bit of a fun, gritty feel).It’s your wedding day make sure you have lots of fun!-Denise – To see more of our work please visit Modern Wedding Photography

I just wanted to thank the team over at Lovesick Expo for orchestrating such a memorable event. Check them out at Lovesick Expo

Long Island Florists – Bayview Florist Wedding Studio – Vendor Spotlight

Bayview Florist & Montage-VendorSpotlight
Not all florists are the same. If you need a great florist check out the blog post for some wonderful advice by Marion, own of Bayview Florist Wedding Studio.

Marion: You’ve just gotten engaged.  Now the fun begins! Planning a wedding, whew!  There are a lot of details to cover and one of them is flowers. Are flowers important?  Flowers will most likely be included in every minute of your day. Starting with the bouquets the girls will carry, to the ceremony space where you take your vows, to the ballroom where you celebrate. Let’s look at each category, personal, ceremony and reception and see what should be taken into account. How do you choose your bouquet flowers?  Before you meet with your florist, determine your style.  Are you vintage, formal or Modern? Your bridesmaid’s dress color will play an important role in deciding what colors and flower choices will be used throughout the wedding.

Long Island Florist, Photos from The Garden City Hotel and Cherry Valley Country Club

Long Island Florist, Photos from The Garden City Hotel and Cherry Valley Country Club- Lauren and Curtis’s fantastic wedding day!

I pick wedding bouquets the same way I would pick a piece of jewelry for a great outfit.  They should accent what you’re wearing, not overpower it or be the focus. Your bouquet will be your most photographed accessory making it the most important one!  I like to infuse meaning to my bride’s bouquets with a piece of lace from mom’s dress or photo lockets of grandparents.

The men’s boutonnieres will correlate with the girl’s bouquets. Keep in mind, boutonnieres can really take a beating throughout the day! Unlike the bouquets, they are compressed time and time again with hearty hello hugs and are really put through the ringer!  You many want to consider an extra for the groom so that it looks fresh for the reception. Pocket squares are hugely popular right now.  If the men have a great pocket square and it’s a bold color, I would skip the boutonniere.  If it’s a subdued color, steel grey or black, you can still consider a flower but it’s not necessary.  Again, we don’t want to overdue, we want to accent.  You can have lots of great ideas, the trick is to understand that they may not all work together.

You may have heard you should use flowers that are local and in season. If you’re using a trained florist, they will automatically direct you toward blooms that are in season without you having to ask.  We want to work with seasonal flowers as they are the fullest and lushest at their peak.

Tip: make an appointment with your florist one year ahead in the month you’re getting married so you can see what’s in season.

Choosing flowers for the ceremony should depend on where your ceremony is.  Will it be in a formal church, an outdoor vineyard, the same venue as the reception, do you require a chuppah? Different surroundings call for different embellishments.  Is your ceremony outdoors? What’s plan B if it rains?  A good florist will make sure you’re covered for all weather conditions. The ceremony may be the briefest part of your day but it is the most important. It will be remembered in your photographs forever. Make the space your own; add your colors through flowers.

Saint Raymonds of Penafort-East Rockaway NY

Saint Raymonds of Penafort-East Rockaway NY- From Meghan and Paul’s wonderful wedding!

Tip: Have your ceremony flowers moved to your ballroom.  This way they work for you all night!

The ballroom is the place where your personality and originality can really shine.  All eyes will be on the centerpieces so make them the focus of your bloom budget.  What feeling do you want to convey?  Classic elegance, vintage chic, polished contemporary?  The venue will have a lot to do with what style choices you make.  Your flowers need to belong to your space.  Water venues tend to be a bit less formal than mansions and hotels. That’s not to say that crystal chandeliers don’t belong in a barn.  The juxtaposition of the two can be amazing.  A trusted florist will be able to help you pull together your ideas into a cohesive visual concept that reflects your style and personality.

Long Island Florists

Tip: Start collecting photos to give your floral expert a window into what textures and concepts appeal to you.  Pinterest is a great place to start.

Most importantly, don’t worry about what everyone else will think! This is your wedding, let’s plan it the way you want it.  Bayview Florist is a boutique wedding studio with locations in Nassau and Suffolk.  Being a smaller company has its advantages.  It allows me the time to form a relationship with my brides, truly understanding their vision and bringing it to fruition.  I meet with my brides, hand select the blooms we will use for the wedding day and make sure all the smallest details are carried out.  We have 54 years’ experience and strive for inspired, creative designs that are unique to you. I have enjoyed working with every one of my brides and I look forward to working with you!

The top five reasons for hiring a Wedding Designer, by our special guest blogger, the forever creative Michelle Edgemont!

See Michelle Edgemont at work in her wonderful promo video below!   Visit Michelle’s website to be totally inspired

I’ve been a fan of Michelle’s for a while now and we finally got to meet at Wedding Crashers. I love that her business is so focused on helping her clients personality shine through on their wedding day. I crave all that is true and authentic, in life and in my photography. That is what I love about the bespoke touches that Michelle brings to her clients precious day. I was so excited when she agreed to write a guest blog post for the Modern Wedding Photography blog. Thank you Michelle! Read her post below.

The Top Five Reasons for Hiring a Wedding Designer

“I’m Michelle Edgemont and I own a wedding design and floral company based in Brooklyn, NY. I’m hired by couples to make their personalities shine on their wedding day, through how the wedding looks and how it feels. I create a design board, color palette, and custom decor to create a party that the couple loves and is a reflection of who they are, all with a modern, colorful spin. I’m here to share with you my personal top five reasons why I think you should hire a wedding designer to bring the artistic flair to your day.”

1. You are overwhelmed by Pinterest/wedding blogs/wedding magazines/your mother-in-law’s sense of style.

“Either your Wedding Decor board has a gazillion pins on it or you just don’t have the time for Pinterest. When clients hire me, I help them sort it all out and create a cohesive Design Board that tells a story. I’ll learn all about you and your fiance – your likes, dislikes, favorite foods, favorite outfit, how you decorate your apartment – and I’ll use that information to pull inspiration images.  I’ll talk you down off the mason jar ledge. Did you care about mason jars before you started looking at wedding blogs? If not, then maybe you shouldn’t have them at your wedding? Your wedding decor is best when it’s a reflection of what you and your spouse-to-be personally love, not what is trendy on the plethora of wedding sites.  A custom color palette will be designed to go with your personalized Design Board. So when you are faced with the decision on what color table linens to choose, you’ll pick a color from the palette, and you’re done. See, that was easy.”

2. You love crafts.

“Making a ton of rad decorations for your wedding? Awesome! Now you’ll need someone to see your vision and set it all up for you.  At Michelle Edgemont, we do all of that. I’ll take all of those amazing decorations, favors, place cards, etc., that you’ve been working on for months, fill in the gaps with some custom decor and florals that I’ve designed just for you, and work by butt off on your wedding day to set it all up exactly how you have envisioned it.”

3. You want your wedding to have the personalized, DIY touch, but don’t know how to use a glue gun and could care less about spending a whole day tying ribbons onto programs? Hire a wedding designer to design and craft custom decor items for your wedding day.

“Based on the Design Board and color palette that I’ve created for you, I’ll design artistic decorations and florals that seamlessly tell your story. Want a 1970’s dance themed wedding with Lite Brites and vintage records? Let’s do it. How about a black and white stripe theme with tons of gold sequins and candlelight? I’ll make it happen for you. All of your decor will have that special, crafty touch, but without you getting glue gun burns!”

4. You want those photographs you see on wedding blogs of personalized details.

“Consider hiring a wedding designer to be sure that your photographer has all of the details to photograph. For example, I’ll style your wedding invitation for your photographer to capture a pretty photo. I’ll add props, decor, and a backdrop to your dessert spread to make it pop in the reception venue. If detail shots are very important to you, having a wedding designer there on the day-of to style each one will be well worth the money.”

5. You crave a level headed friend with good taste and a strong design sense to bounce ideas off of.

“Getting married is stressful. There are many cooks in the kitchen all with their own opinions on every tiny detail. What you envision, what your fiance  envisions, your best friend’s thoughts, your mother’s ideas, and your mother-in-law’s opinions could all be drastically different. You need someone who will give you no-nonsense advice on decoration decisions. A wedding designer is that person. I’m here to send 2 AM emails to when you are awake with anxiety over what color sash the bridesmaids should wear. I’m the person who can calmly explain to your mother that you and your fiance prefer neon green tablecloths to traditional ivory and why.   I can give reasons why the extra $500 on candles will dramatically increase the romantic feeling of your reception that you crave and give your photographer a bit more light to get those beautiful images you are paying them for. I’ll tell you that if handcrafted favors don’t fit into your budget, it’s fine. No one will notice.  You and your new spouse will dance the night away surrounded by decorations and flowers that make you feel like you – happy, having fun, and 110% custom designed just for your wedding.”
