Allen Hill Wedding in the Fall | Abi + Marc

This fun energetic couple were meant to be from their very first date. I mean its almost like a ferry tail story of how they went on a vacation out of the country for their second date. Thats all it took and now they are happily married. When I showed up to the inn where Abi was getting ready I was in heaven with he beautiful outdoor patio stones and gorgeous purple flowers on the property. Of course she wanted her first look in the orchard trees on the farm at Allen hill which is one of my very favorite spots there. Especially that time of year when everything is in bloom and you get the beautiful greenery. Abi and Marc loved it so much they decided to have their ceremony facing the orchard. The first look was epic as I assumed it would be. These two are naturals in front of the camera and so in love. The fun bridal party kept me laughing the whole time and were up for anything I suggested. Abi and Marc incorporated just about all of their family during the tree planting ceremony which I thought was so unique. I can’t wait to see an update on how big their tree will be in a year from their wedding. As always On The Spot Catering killed it with the setup and food. I kinda wanted to just sit and eat everything in sight. Once we got our stomach full the dance party started and didn’t stop all night long. Thank you Abi & Marc for choosing me to share in your wedding memories!

Farm Engagement Session | Stephen + Joel

Where to begin with these two handsome guys. When I first met Stephen at the hair salon I knew right away I wanted to have the opportunity to photograph him one day. His smile is just infectious and his out going personality lights up any room. As sad as I am that he literally moved to Florida the day we took these photos I am super happy he found his soul mate. I will forever miss our fun and hilarious conversations while sitting in his chair getting my hair done. When Stephen called and said lets get some photos done before me move away I was so honored. He left it up to me where we wanted to shoot but with one thing in mind he said I love something with nature and old barn looking buildings. So of course I had the perfect place in mind and it just happened to be right by my studio. One of my favorite places to photograph year round. Some people don’t realize the history in our small town of Canterbury and I kinda like it that way. Its always so quiet and a relaxed atmosphere when I bring my clients here to shoot. Next time I get to see these handsome guys will be for their wedding day. Now hurry up you too and get to planning that big day!!

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.
