Elegant Latitude 41 Wedding | Lauren + Casey

Getting ready in your childhood bedroom with your mom is every little girls dream when we grow up. Well Lauren had this dream come true on her wedding day. Meanwhile with the guys Casey’s dad showed everyone how to be a true gentleman and put his wife shoes on for her when she could not reach her straps. Lauren and Casey chose to hold their ceremony in a local church in Mystic CT followed by a romantic reception at Latitude 41. That moment when Lauren got ready to walk down the isle to her groom in waiting the anticipation with the biggest smile on her face. Did we have a blunder of yes we did… As her handsome groom looked at her from the front of the isle as her custom veil made by a sweet family member got stuck in the church doors Casey could not help but have the biggest smile on his face wondering what was going on and why she was not walking to him. Lauren is such a go with the flow bride she threw the veil to the side and continued on to her groom in waiting with a smile. After saying their sweet I Do’s we proceeded to the Mystic Seaport for bridal party portraits. Oh the many places to use at the Seaport. I could play there all day but we had to get them to their party. Details are one of my most favorite parts of every wedding day. As all my couples know from seeing my portfolio I spend a lot of time on details. So when you give a tons I giggle with excitement. These two shared an epic first dane filled with a dip and laughter and then onto the fun! Their band did NOT disappoint and had the party going all night long.

Mansion at Bald Hill Wedding | Brittany + Drew

I still remember the day Brittany reached out to me about her wedding at The Mansion at bald hill. She had me at hello we are planning to have our beloved dogs in our ceremony and are you okay with dogs… I eekkked in excitement and could not wait to celebrate their wedding day with them. I can’t believe these two loves birds planned their wedding in only a short few months. 3 to be exact. I mean who thinks they will call their venue of choice only to hear theres been a cancelation and we have a date open 3 months away. I swear sometimes the short planned weddings are always the most beautiful and fun. My favorite part of this gorgeous wedding was the flowers. Brittany used wood flowers for everything and they are STUNNING… I do believe her engagement ring was the start to my new love affair with colored stones instead of diamonds. Who needs a diamond now a days just get me a beautiful designed ring with a beautiful colored rock made in Rose Gold and you have my heart! I can go on and on about how much I loved this wedding and how gorgeous it was but instead I will let the photos tell the story of these two love birds. You can see if written all over everyones face how perfect these two are for each other. I have to say The Mansion at Bald Hill is still one of my most favorite venues in the North East “Quiet Corner” of Connecticut.

Bill Miller's Castle Wedding | Lisa + Sachin

Lisa and Sachin are two the my favorite people I’m had the pleasure of meeting through the years. I had this deep connection with Lisa at our very first meeting as she stole my heart the minute she cried looking at my wood memory box. I knew right then and there she’s my kinda bride. Emotional and in LOVE with photos and the preservation of memories. I have this slight obsession with telling stories behind my photos even in my everyday life with my kids. Details Details and more Details… A favorite part of every wedding day for me is the small little details like the smallest stones on the brides shoe to the grooms custom cufflinks. The smiles they share and the tears they shed when the father hands off his beautiful daughter to her forever husband. I find it very therapeutic to be in these moments knowing I captured it for them to cherish for a life time. Lisa and Sachin had a rainy wedding day but that did not stop this couple one bit. As always I have umbrellas for my bridal parties incase and even with a sideways rain these fun loving friends did not complain once as we ran outside following the indoor ceremony to grab some fun photos under the umbrellas. We got so lucky and the rain clouds cleared long enough for Lisa and Sachin to get some romantic couples photos outside around the grounds of Bill Miller’s Castle before being whisked into their reception for the first dance. My secret favorite part was getting to try the different foods from Sachin culture and boy was it delicious. We ended the night with fun and dancing and even cigar rolling which turned into a cigar smoke portrait session in the dark. Thank you Lisa and Sachin for having me be your photographer. I LOVED every minute of your special day!

The Simsbury Inn Rustic Wedding | Megan + Paul

This very beautiful rustic wedding at The Simsbury Inn was nothing but spectacular. Megan and Paul even planned for us to stop in route from the church to the reception at this quiet little farm for portraits. Every who knows me can tell you if you put me on a farm I am going to have the biggest smile on my face and make magic. I may even ask you to walk into some random tall grass and have a little fun. I may ask you to twirl around and just kiss. Paul took it one step further and took his new bride over his shoulder. Ummmm I was totally in heaven when he did that. These two had so much fun and I could photograph them all over again. I am sad these two love birds moved away but I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for them. It was an honor to be a part of their very special day. They made me feel like part of the family and not just another vendor at their wedding. I even cried and laughed with them during the speeches. Make sure you check out the sweetest little touches Megan put into her day with all the little details. She even had a custom bouquet made with strips from her grandmothers wedding dress attached. I thought it was so sweet the ring she had engraved for her mother and the special message she put on her dads handkerchief. I knew from the minute I walked into that bridal suite it was going to be a great day full of special moments to capture. This is another reason why I love what I do.

Aria Rustic Garden Wedding | Kelsey + Joe

This rustic garden themed wedding at Aria was simply a stunner. Kelsey and Joe did a beautiful job planning everything down to the finest details. The cutest honey bee glass jars were placed at every seat in the house for their guests to take home. The flowers lets talk flowers for a minute. I mean they were stunning. Of course the Beauty Entourage did a fabulous job with hair and make up as always. I just love working with them. Kelsey and Joe decided to share a first look on their wedding day and to be honest I adore first looks because they can have a small quiet moment just the two of them before all the hassle and bustle of the day begins. It also helps us knock out all the portraits pre ceremony and leaves them to enjoy their cocktail hour. The time came for the ceremony in the back garden area and I couldn’t help but be mesmerized by the light coming in over the trees. They really had someone looking over them on this day. Then came time to party and I mean duh I wouldn’t have expected any less than this epic choreographed first dance. I was in awwwww as I know the entire room was as well. With the twirls and dips I just loved every minute of it. I know these two were dancing the night away and into their honeymoon with the biggest smiles on their faces. Thanks Kelsey & Joe for choosing J.Parsons Photography to be part of your special 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.
