St. Charles Borromeo Church Wedding; Scottadito Osteria Toscana reception | Alex & Patrick

Alex and Patrick's family-centered wedding was a blast! They decided to opt out of a first look, something I only recommend if you are having the ceremony and reception in separate places, which they were. She did a first look with her dad, though, which was so sweet. 

The break between the two gave us plenty of time afterward for formal portraits, and then couple portraits around Brooklyn Heights and Grand Army Plaza, which could easily double for European cobblestone streets! 

Alex picked out her Saja gown before finding out she was pregnant, and it luckily ended up being the perfect fit over her second-trimester bump!
