The Barns at Wesleyan Hills Spring Wedding | Nicole + Jadian

Where do I even begin with how gorgeous this wedding at The Barns at Wesleyan Hills for Nicole and Jadian was. Every time I turned around the details where every where. Every single one of my brides knows I am kinda obsessed with every thing rustic and chic. This wedding did not disappoint one bit. I would have to say I love every wedding I have the pleasure to photograph every year but this one by far was my dream wedding to a T… From the beautiful hair styles the ladies had to the amazingly delicious food. I am always so excited to work with the CT Wedding Group at one of their properties because I just know the food is going to be spot on. I fell in love with these two when I first met them for their engagement session and I was so honored to be a part of their special day.

Rustic Wedding at The Webb Barn | Megan + Mike

I don't even know where to start with this gorgeous wedding for Megan and Mike at The Webb Barn. Megan and her family made so many of the details by hand and I was truly blown away at how gorgeous everything turned out. I just knew from our first meeting listening to the way Megan talked about her venue choice and everything she was planning that I was honored to be a part of their special day. I mean Megan had everything down to the littlest detail of her something blue sewn into her dress and she had a sweet message sewn into her dads tie. I melted when she flipped his tie over during their first look to show me. Mike and his guys all had fun American flag socks on under their suits. I just love when my groom and his guys all pick out fun socks. It really lets their personalities really come out. Now to talk about how amazing Megan's dress was... Holly gorgeous with the lace overlay. HEAVEN!!!! 

I had the pleasure of working with the fabulous Victoria from Everlasting Affairs for the day of coordinator and I must say I wish ALL my brides would book with her. Victoria and her team were such a pleasure to work and made the day run smooth. 

So back to the gorgeous wedding day! We could not have asked for more beautiful weather. The sun was shinning and lots of smiles in the crowd when Megan began to walk down the long path to reach her groom waiting to say I DO. Mike was tearing up and you could just see it all over his face how much he loves Megan. It was magical. Her dad was beat red with nervousness but in the end was all smiles when he handed his daughter over to her new husband to be. The ceremony was filled with lots of laughing and a little bit of crying mixed in. My favorite reaction after they said their I DO's and shred their first kiss was when Mike screamed WOOOOO as he brought his new wife back down the isle. It was so great. The bridal party was not to disappoint either. They all had the most fun props to use during their grand entrances after the portraits. I mean we are talking basketball hoop with a confetti rocket launcher to a mini go-gart. Yup you read that correct... Everyone enjoyed themselves with a crowded dance floor all night long. Best night ever Megan and Mike you did an amazing job planning your wedding and I was so honored to be a able to spend the day with you creating memories for you and your families to cherish for years to come.

The Barns at Wesleyan Hills | Becca & Marty Wedding

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.

Allen Hill Farm Wedding | Karen + Matthew

Where to begin with this beautiful wedding. I mean I LOVE shooting at Allen Hill Tree Farm so much that when Rachel with Rowanberry + Lavender called me to shoot this wedding with her I could not refuse. We couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous day and the weather was perfect for this fall wedding at the farm. The day started off at The Hilton Garden Inn and all it took was one step through the front door and I knew right away the perfect spot to hang the dress. I literally fell in love with the chandeliers in the lobby and with the beautiful wood and glass backdrop who could go wrong. I love when I get to go back and fourth between the bride and groom especially when the rooms are on the same floor. Matt was already dressed when we arrived but I couldn't help but grabbed a few quick details of him and on to the bride I went to back up Rachel. Karen had a handkerchief from her grandmother and kept the box it came in for her wedding day to store it. How much love this family has just made me feel like I was part of the family that day even though I had literally only met them 5 minutes ago. I immediately knew right then and there why Rachel talked so highly of this couple and how much she loved this family. Matt made Karen the sweetest necklace that had the coordinates engraved of where they are getting married on both sides. How creative he is I swear. I mean he even made the log Arbor that they got married under at the Farm. 

Then came time for Karen to get into her dress and well the tears quickly flowed. I found myself getting teary eyed behind the camera as I was shooting the moment. Rachel and I looked at each other and our hearts melted with excitement for Karen. Once Karen was dressed I quickly drove off to Allen Hill Farm to start the groomsmen photos and of course they are always a blast. The guys had a few fun ideas and even decided they would all climb to the top of the rock and take big group photo. 

I think I witnessed one of the most emotional ceremonies of all my weddings ever shot that day. The crying the smiling and most of all the laughing. After exchanging their rings they did a rope ceremony where they tie hands together and the officiant tells a nice story. The best part of the whole ceremony was the officiant was a very close friend of the family which always makes it more personal to the couple. 

Well finally it was party time for the guests and Rachel and I were off into the sunset with the happy newlyweds and of course we both were jumping for joy with the gorgeous sunset light we were so blessed to have that day. I think we probably took about 500 or more photos between the two of us. LOL If your looking for a gorgeous sunset for your wedding day then I highly recommend having your wedding at Allen Hill Tree Farm. Theres so many little hidden gems on that property for your wedding day photos. Also they always have the BEST caterers. On the Spot  Catering is one of my very favorite caterers in the area so I was really excited to see them there. They are always so tentative to the bride and groom and amazing to fellow vendors. They feed us well too and in my eyes thats always a BONUS when your on your feet working all day to have a great working relationship with other vendors.

After formals where over it was time to get to the fun part of the day! The first dance was amazing and of course the father daughter dance was emotional. Aren't they always the most emotional part of the day? Karen's Made of Honor was brought to tears and you could see the joy in her mothers face. We had fun partying along with the guests and snapped a ton of amazing photos even out by the bon fire and during cat cutting. But until next time I say Live, Love, Laugh and be Merry!

congrats to the happy couple and Thanks again to Rachel for having me to shoot this beautiful wedding with her. I can't wait for our next adventure together!
