Bridal Trend: Wedding Photographs Taken In The Library

I really love weddings. I really love books.

So the current trend of having wedding photographs taken in libraries is absolutely fabulous, in my opinion!

I am not completely sure when this trend became popular, but the failed uber-wedding of Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big was scheduled to take place at the New York Public Library in the first Sex and the City movie.

Regardless of why this setting is now popular, I find it to be fresh, original, and a little geeky-chic!

The rich wood tones of the bookshelves, the saturated variety of colors of aged book covers, the unique lighting, and fun props such as ladders and paintings all contrast perfectly with brides and grooms in traditional wedding garb.

Are you quickly realizing this is a trend you’d like to try?

Talk to your photographer right away! He or she will help you find the right library and will assist in coming up with lots of unique ideas.

Don’t be afraid to make your own suggestions! How cute would an engagement shoot in the library be? What about photos of you and your fiance reading favorite books? Or a book-themed save the date card (this date is booked).

If you are a true bibliophile, have fun and be creative with this funky yet traditional intellectual trend.
