Guilford Yacht Club Wedding | Meggie + Brian

What a beautiful day we had for Meggie and Brian’s Guildford Yacht Club wedding last August. They really had the perfect day which usually you think in mid August it would be super hot. We got so lucky and had a gorgeous breeze day. I was so excited when they told me about this quiet little park over looking the water way across from the venue. We decided the first look and portraits had to take place there. The guys showed up in the biggest truck form the marina. We all had a good laugh when they pulled up and all the guys jumped out of the back of the pickup in suits. I must say Meggie was one of the calmest brides to date. I think me favorite part of the day was jumping on the boat and taking a quick spin with them out on the water. I mean its not everyday your couple arrives to their wedding ceremony by boat. We had a lot of laughs and even a few tears throughout the day. The reception was no small feet filled with exciting dances including an irish dance by the grooms relatives. We ate delicious food and yummy cake (Everyone knows I shoot weddings for the cake). They ended the night under the sparkler lined sidewalk with their friends and family. A little birdie told me this sweet couple is expecting a new little one this summer and I could not be more excited for them to move into this next chapter together. Congratulations to you Meggie and Brian on the new bundle of joy.

Awesome Vendors who made the day great!

The Overlook at Geer Tree Farm Wedding | Sam + John

Sam and John’s wedding at The Overlook at Geer Tree Farm turned out to be a beautiful wedding despite having a rainy start to the day. The sun came out shinning brightly just in time for the ceremony to begin. When I arrived at the farm the girls where having fun and relaxing while waiting their turn for hair and make up. The guys arrived a little while later to my surprise no one knew how to tie a bow tie, so you tube it was. I can honestly say of all the wedding I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of I find it so cute that so many groomsmen don’t know how to tie a bow tie. It always makes for fun getting ready shots with the men. This was my first time having the pleasure of working at the beautiful Geer Tree Farm and I can’t wait to have the chance to go back again. Especially when one of my favorite caterers is on the job. I can honestly say I love working with Stacy from On the spot catering. She and her team always go above and beyond for every wedding. They were so accommodating for Sam and John that they literally waited until the last possible second to make the call to have the ceremony outside overlooking the beautiful tree farm instead of forcing everyone under the reception tent. Which I am so glad Sam let Stacy make the call because it turned out so beautiful. We know someone was looking over this couple on their wedding day. During our portraits we got the most gorgeous rainbow that came shinning in the camera and I was all giggly as always when I know I am creating magic in camera for my amazing couples. We ended the night with a lot of fun dancing and glow a glow stick dance party. John had the dj play a song in honor of his fellow servicemen which made for some great dancing to kick off the dance party. It was a pleasure being a part of this awesome couples big day and I can’t wait to see where their love story takes them.

Nautical Wedding At Owenego Inn & Beach Club | Paige + Alan

When I got the call from Christine a dear friend and fellow photographer with Chensley Photography that she needed me in a big way. I knew I just had to step up and help her out. I couldn't have been more honored to shoot Paige and Alan's big day at the Owenego Inn and Beach Club in Branford, CT. I mean who doesn't love having the best job ever? I got to show up and shoot this incredible couple and all the little details of the day. We laughed cried and danced the night away! Christine did a beautiful job with editing this stunning wedding and allowing me to blog the images makes my photographer heart happy!! I truly LOVED every moment of Paige and Alan's wedding day. 

I have to admit between Paige's aunts unique ceremony and the amazing dancing I can't decide which of the two I loved the most. This wedding was pretty epic... But my absolute most favorite part was when I took them out to the rock jetty in the water for some romantic portraits of just the two of them. OMG is ALL I need to say! Keep scrolling you will SEE them all!! 

Congratulations again to the newlyweds and thank you for trusting me to shoot your wedding in Christine's place while she took maternity leave with her new bundle of joy.

Summer Wedding at Shuttle Meadow Country Club | Sarah + James

Sarah and James' wedding was nothing short of perfection. No detail was left out from the invitations to the matching bridesmaids hangers all the way to ending the night with a custom popcorn bar. Lorissa from Shuttle Meadow Country Club really took Sarah's vision and ran with the setup. I have to give her and her team so much credit for keeping the wedding running smooth. The wood was out of this world delicious. When Sarah told me she was going to have a live band in stead of a Dj I got so excited. I love when my couples have a live band. They really know how to keep the party going. Their day started off with a few tears but tons of smiles. James was a little nervous but I mean what groom doesn't have nerves before they get to see their beautiful bride walking down the isle. I just adore the little church they said their vows and exchanged their rings in. Once they shared their first kiss it was off the party. Bridal party photos were fun and then it was off to the gulf carts we went. I will never forget watching Sarah holding her huge bouquet going up and down the hills of the trails. The beautiful scenery overlooking the greens just made my heart smile. Sarah and James are naturals in front of the camera as I learned during our engagement session last fall. It was just so effortless taking photos of them. I literally could photograph them all day and night long. Shuttle Meadow Country Club is the perfect setting for some romantic images. My favorite part about their venue was that Sarah's parents also got married and had their reception at the club. It really made for such a special wedding memory. We even had fun recreating her parents favorite photo at the front door of the club. Of course we made a few memories of our own along the way. 

I hope Sarah and James are enjoying their amazing honeymoon in the Mediterranean on a cruise. I can't wait to hear all about it when they return. Thank you again Sarah and James for allowing me and Elana to share in your gorgeous 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.
