One of my most favorite parts about living in Canterbury is the small town feel we have here. Josey found me on google and I was honored to come be a part of their special intimate backyard wedding. We had the best time walking their property along the creek after they said their I do’s. I think it was one of the least pressure wedding days I’ve ever had. I am starting to love intimate weddings. I should do more of them because just seeing these two so in love and not a care in the world about having the big wedding was so beautiful and inspiring. If I get married again its officially in my head I don’t want a big wedding I want something small and simple. All you need is LOVE and each other. Coz was the most gently man and you could see how much he cared for Josey. He was shaking with excitement to put that ring on her figure that he had a hard time getting it on. I can’t wait to get the call when they start having little ones… (Hint Hint I’m ready when you are to start having little ones!! LOL) I love babies just as much as weddings. Congratulations to this wonderful couple and here’s to many many happy years of marriage.

High School Sweethearts Erin and Mike tide the knot a month ago at the Beautiful Wrights Mill Farm in Canterbury, CT and boy was it a blast. When I first met with Erin and Jeff I just knew right from that very first conversation I had to photograph their wedding. They put some much love into the little details. I mean who makes their own moonshine for their wedding? They did!!! The custom shot glasses for each guest was just the best touch for the toasts. Putting personality into your wedding day is what I love most about JPP brides. I want brides who are willing to have a cake fight during their cake smash but still trust me to take them out to an open field and make magic out of it. We danced and laughed and had a great time that night. I must say I don't know how they pulled it off, but they did and everyone seemed to have an awesome time between dancing playing horseshoe and even roasting marshmallows by the bon fire from the smores bar. The night seemed to fly by filled with laughter and a lot of tears. Happy Tears.... One of my most favorite parts of the day; well I mean who gets to say their dad drove them to the alter in a fully restored gorgeous blue corvette? This bride does!!!
It was such a pleasure to be a part of Erin and Jeff's wedding and create memories for the family to cherish for years to come.

Where to begin with this stunning wedding? Becca and Marty chose the perfect rustic barn for their romantic spring wedding. The Barns at Wesleyan Hills was decorated to perfection with every detail in its place. I was so honored to shoot this special wedding with my awesome friend Robyn from Robyn and Lou photography. We always have so much fun when shooting together. My day started with Marty and the guys and lets just say I knew form the moment I walked in that this was going to be a wedding filled with so much love. Marty was beaming with excitement and blushed every time someone mentioned his soon to be new wife. Poor Becca was sick on her wedding day but that didn't stop her from looking absolutely stunning in her gown. The Ct wedding group who hosts weddings for The Barns at Wesleyan hills did a fabulous job as always with their styling and day of coordinating. I am always happy to shoot a wedding at one of their venues, because lets face it they truly know how to put on an epic wedding.
So my favorite part of the day was when Becca walked out to the end of the isle to meet her father. I didn't know Becca before that day but after talking with her in her bridal sweet before the ceremony I just knew that moment needed to be captured in time. And surely it was magic seeing the look on her fathers face as his beautiful daughter walked down the long driveway to him. They picked a beautiful spot on the property to have their ceremony right in front of the weeping willows that blew in the wind. Let's just say it was magic. You can tell by the photos it was the perfect romantic setting. Just like I thought Marty cried and cried when his bride walked down the isle and he continued to cry during most of the ceremony especially when he said his vows. Both sets of parents just gleamed with huge smiles knowing their children were finally tying the knot. This was such and emotional day and I'm so thankful to have been a part of it. The first dance was even more amazing as the ceremony. The barn was decorated to perfection. I can't wait to be able to come back to this beautiful venue for another amazing wedding. So if your looking for the perfect romantic rustic wedding then you can't go wrong with The barns at Wesleyan Hills.

The Ledyard Sawmill was the perfect choice for Erin and Jeff's engagement session. They are the sweetest couple and speak to my southern rustic loving heart. When I first met Erin at a bridal show I knew from that moment that we would have a blast working together. These two are so fun to be around its no wonder they are going to have a fun party of a wedding next July. It takes a very selfless person with a big heart be a nurse. I can't wait to see all the gorgeous shabby chic decor she is planning for her wedding at Wright's Mill next summer. I can just imagine its going to be beautiful and knowing the way Wright's Mill puts on a wedding it will be spectacular and the perfect day. Thank you Erin and Jeff for letting me make beautiful memories for you both during this wonderful time in your lives!
Katie and David chose to have a beautiful rustic wedding at The Retreat at Bradley Pond in Tallahassee Florida. This place was gorgeous! Seriously an amazing venue. The Retreat at Bradley Pond, nestled beneath majestic canopy of oak trees and Spanish moss, and is one of Tallahassee's favorite venues for a wedding. There is so much history there its incredible. There is an unlimited opportunity to take some amazing pictures between the beautiful pond with a small intimate dock to the old country store and Grist Mill that has graced the area since the 1920's. I had a ton of fun getting to know Katie and David. They sure know how to work hard and you can tell they put a lot of work into planning their perfect day. Katie even made every guest their own personalized mason jar to take home. Oh and I can't forget how amazing both their rings look. I am obsessed with them. The couple even took some time out of their day to take a stroll to the country store and ride on the hand made swing. Over all their day was pretty epic. I would highly recommend having a rustic wedding at The Retreat at Bradley Pond! Thanks again to my awesome second shooter Andrea for being there with me. You rocked it girl and I hope we get to shoot another wedding together in the future when I come back to Tallahassee for another wedding.
