Villa Borghese DIY Wedding, New York | Meriel + James

Villa Borghese DIY Summer Wedding Wappingers Falls New York_Wedding Photographers NYC_1Just wait until you see all the diy wedding details! I thought Ben and I did a lot of diy projects for our wedding, but Meriel + James’ details put us to shame.

These two are so adorable together and after dating for 10 years, getting their dog Rocco and buying a house they made it official. Although, if you would ask their families they were already apart of each others families. Meriel just gets to finally call herself Mrs. Inglima : )

I started the day off with James and his groomsmen at their house.

James carried his Grandfather’s police badge and wore pins from his uniform.

Loved the backdrop of these pink flowers for the girls’ portraits.

Do some of the bridesmaids and groomsmen look familiar? I shot James’ sister’s Up! themed wedding last year (Casey + Billy). I really love their family and it was so great getting to see them and work with them again.

Meriel had her grandparents’ pins from their lodge placed on her bouquet and wore her mother’s pearls.

During the ceremony and while we were driving to the reception the sky decided to let loose and it completely down poured. Like the skies were an ominous gray and it was hard to see out of the windshield. There was even a tornado warning. Amazingly when we were about 10 minutes away from Villa Borghese the rain let up and a beautiful rainbow appeared. It didn’t rain the rest of day and we were able to capture some really beautiful portraits on Villa Borghese‘s grounds.

I was in love with Meriel’s cathedral length veil. It was so delicate and beautiful. We had some fun with it : )

It was finally time to celebrate! And Meriel + James and their guests knew how to party : )

Meriel and her Mother put together the vases in front of the table. Meriel also put together all the votive candles that served as the guests’ place cards. Candles are such a great way to create an intimate and romantic atmosphere.

How cute is Meriel’s setup with the votives and cake stands? (I love cake stands!)

I told you there were a lot of diy wedding details!

It’s so cute when James just picks Meriel up and her feet dangle.

Meriel and some family members decorated all of the frames so that guests could put their pictures from the photo booth in them.

I’ve never seen this idea for the table numbers and I really wish I would have known about it for our wedding! It’ll be so neat for them to read one on each anniversary.

Meriel + James’ best man and maid of honor’s toasts were great!

The diy details just don’t seem to end! All throughout the day you could tell that Meriel + James had really put a lot of love and thought into everything. Which I really think just reflects the type of couple that they are: thoughtful, loving, fun and they really work so well together.
