Douglaston Manor Wedding by Lauren Gabrielle Photography
March 2, 2012
Tri State

Twirling is an important (yet often overlooked) detail in the ways of wedding-day bliss. So finding a dress that makes you want to take on the world and twirl at the same time is oh so key. I'd say it's pretty clear that this lovely Bride found her perfect dress right along with her perfect man because you can just feel the happiness in these images from Lauren Gabrielle Photography. I mean, any bride that jumps through sprinklers before the reception is one happy, twirly Bride. The entire affair will make you want to do a little twirl yourself, and we don't see anything wrong with that! See it all here!

From Lauren of Lauren Gabrielle Photography... Paula and Emanuel were one of the most beautiful, fun and unique couples I have ever photographed. Just to give you an idea of how adventurous they were, we photographed their "first look" in the middle of a busy intersection in Manhattan, Paula practically took a midday bath in Central Park's Bethesda Fountain, and they both ran through the sprinklers at their reception (before the reception began!). Their carefree attitude and their desire to enjoy every moment of their wedding day resulted in unforgettable moments and amazing photographs. In addition, Paula did an wonderful job choosing style and decor. Her lovely, elegant Lazaro gown complemented both the modern New York City background and the rustic ambiance of their Spanish villa-style venue. For the reception, this rustic ambiance was accented with peach tablecloths and striking centerpieces made of manzanita branches surrounded by orchids and garden roses. The bridesmaids wore gorgeous yet simple vintage pink dresses with ivory sashes purchased from Etsy. Their bouquets added a touch of lavender and further tied into the rustic theme. Overall, their wedding was unforgettable both in style and sentiment. I don't have to tell you that Paula and Emanuel are crazy about each other — their photos and video speak for themselves!
