Angelina’s Staten Island Bridal Shower

Staten Island, New York


If you want bridal shower inspo, seriously look no further. Joanna’s Italy-themed bridal shower was absolutely stunning, from the decadent olive oil bar and the custom cigars (adorned with her and her fiancé, Brian’s, initials) to the sweeping, epic floral installations throughout the space. From the moment I entered the venue, I was absolutely blown away.

Joanna and her mother had been planning the shower for back in November, but due to COVID they unfortunately had to postpone until the spring — but truly, it couldn’t have been more perfect. Angelina’s was the perfect setting for this beautiful celebration, and I couldn’t have been happier to be able to capture memories for Joanna and Brian.

These two first met in college and have been together since 2012. Brian proposed to Joanna around Christmas of 2019, and together the two live in Staten Island with their adorable bulldog, Caesar (who I had the pleasure of meeting as well!).

Congratulations to this sweet couple, and I couldn’t be happier for them to officially tie the knot in just a few weeks!
