Oftentimes, detail shots are some of the most memorable when you're going back through your wedding photos. One of our favorites are detail shots of the shoes - whether they're the bride's, groom's, bridesmaids', or groomsmen's.

If you like these, be sure to ask your photographer to take a couple of quick shots on your big day. After all, every bride puts a little bit of thought into what shoes she wears on her wedding day. You might as well honor your gorgeous footwear with a photo!

Barbara and Dave met at the Yale New Haven Hospital while taking a class to practice suturing. Both being resident doctors, Barbara caught Dave's eye. He suggested they attend a Yale football game together, but didn't realize until later that there wasn't a home game for a couple of weeks. Unable to wait that long for their first date, they both decided that the Sleeping Giant State Park was their next choice. After packing a picnic lunch and a cozy blanket, the two set off for the day and it was then that sparks flew.

Once again, we have a wedding we can't help but want to share! This gorgeous affair came to us from the talented photographers at Alternate Angles. In a move right out of a classic love story, the bride and groom chose to hold their wedding at the Boston Public Library. Not only is this location a majestic city landmark, it's also timeless, home to artist's John Singer Sargent's gorgeous murals, and an undoubtedly beautiful spot for a wedding.

Most brides and grooms-to-be want their entire families to be present at their wedding. For many couples, that includes a furry friend or two. Rest assured that pets are becoming more and more common at weddings. if you're looking for a cute way to include them, consider dressing them up in a bow tie or floral wreath for a festive touch. Outdoor weddings are particularly fun for dogs - and they're so cute, how can you resist not inviting them?
