You are going to fall head over heels in love with this sweet shoot captured by Tiffany Loera Photography, inspired by a real couple’s wedding 65 years ago. From the restored vintage gown to the recreation of their wedding cake, this shoot is a step back in time with the fresh take of now. Be sure to scroll down to see the cute couple themselves posing with their wedding portrait! So sweet!
From Kristen of Something New for I Do : “My mom (owner of the wedding venue, The Corner District) and a group of vendor friends teamed up to put together a shoot that was reminiscent of my grandparent’s wedding. They had just celebrated their 65th anniversary! They were in town visiting and we brought them by the venue to “pick something up” then surprised them with their wedding recreated – a duplicate of their wedding cake (that we later brought home so they could eat it to celebrate), my grandmother’s restored wedding dress that a model later wore for the shoot, their wedding portraits, and fun vintage details that reflected the era and their wedding design.
There were tears, laughter, even my grandpa whipping out his smart phone to take pictures so they could show their friends. It was such a special day and so much fun to show them what my mom and I do for a living, but in a way that truly meant something to them! We made sure to get some portraits of them too, the perfect momento of all that has blossomed from their love and the happiness they felt on this day reminiscing on their wedding.”

Small weddings are some of our favorites and today’s captured by Femina Photo + Design on an NYC rooftop is perfectly sweet! Just look at that view!
Stephen and I wanted a small, intimate wedding. There were only 15 people there, including us. The criteria for picking a location was 1) beautiful views of the city 2) good food. The Standard in the East Village was the perfect location. We live in the East Village so it felt like we were getting married in our backyard – except we were on a rooftop with gorgeous views of the entire city
I had tried on a lot of dresses from stores all around the city and was having a hard time finding anything I liked. The dress from BHLDN was not part of their “wedding collection”; I believe it was considered a Bridesmaid dress. As soon as I tried it on I knew it was perfect. It was so simple which was exactly what I was looking for. I had it altered to take the sleeves from full length to 3/4 so that it would have more of a spring/summer feel.
We wanted everything about the day to have meaning and feel really special. We decided to have my best friend officiate the ceremony – this was one of the best decisions we made. She was able to customize our ceremony in the most beautiful way. We also picked every song that the violinist played throughout the ceremony and the cocktail hour. I walked down the aisle to “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” and when we walked back together she played River by Leon Bridges (we had gone to a Leon Bridges concert on our first official date).
We kept the decor very simple, only decorating the one large table that we ate dinner at. I am an event planner, and I knew I wanted to be able to set up the space myself the day of the wedding. My partner and I spent the afternoon creating flower arrangements and decorating the table. We used gray silk linens, copper charger, marble place cards with copper calligraphy, lots of candles, and flower arrangements created in glass and copper hurricane vases that we turned upside down. I went to the flower market in NYC the day before the wedding and picked out all the flowers. We used lots of white peonies, ranunculus, sweet peas, and anemones. For greenery we added eucalyptus leaves, hanging wisteria, and unripe blueberry branches.
My favorite part was the ceremony. We chose not to do a first look. The excitement of turning the corner to walk down the aisle and see each other for the first time was so awesome. Stephen and I both wrote our own vows; it was such a special moment to recite those vows to each other in front of our families.
