Classic Eolia Mansion Wedding | Wendy & Todd

Published in Weddings
It's hard to believe that Wendy and Todd's story began a decade ago when they met and began dating in high school! All these years later a lot has changed including their love for one another. Their love has only grown year upon year and the sparkle in their eyes has become brighter. 
 
These high school sweethearts vowed their love and forevers to one another in the beautiful Eolia mansion gardens surrounded by their loved ones. Eolia mansion is one of my favorite venues and is such a gorgeous place! It is actually where we did their engagement session last year! As the sun set, the water began to sparkle under the moonlight and the music and laughter of their guests spilled out from the mansion. Their wedding was straight out of a dreeeeam! 
 
One of my all time favorite moments of their day was when Todd danced with his 93 year old grandma! Yes, the same grandma that would continually ask Todd Todd when going to pop the question to Wendy and the one he proposed to Wendy in front of with the rest of the family. Yes, that grandma. He took her hand and they slow danced across the floor and grandma, well, she was just beaming. Then they surprised her and played her favorite song - none other then the Cupid Shuffle! Wendy and loved ones joined in and grandma lead the pack in tearing up the dance floor! Oh and did I mention she is 93?! Let me tell you, she can DANCE! ? 
 
Wendy & Todd - We have been counting down the days to your wedding since the day you asked us to photograph your wedding and it was everything we thought it would be and more! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us that honor and for inviting us to be part of your big day! Looking forward to our next pizza dinner together!

CT Classic Garden Wedding | Kelly & Tim

Published in Weddings
Kelly spends every Halloween with her friend Alana, and that year was no different. Kelly was going to take a bus from Boston MA to Stamford CT to celebrate the spooky and spectacular holiday with her friend, but wouldn't you know it was the year the Northeast got hit with a HUGE snowstorm in October. What is normally a 2.5 bus ride took EIGHT, that's right, E I G H T hours. But she eventually she made it to Connecticut! On one of the nights Kelly and Alana and a bunch of friends went to the New York City for some Halloween festivities and it was then that she met Tim through mutual friends. Safe to say, Tim was quite smitten with her right away... He Facebook friended her the next day and they exchanged numbers. Their phone conversations and texts turned into Tim eventually driving to Boston to see Kelly and the romance blossomed. Tim never really realized how LONG the drive from CT to Boston until he was driving it every weekend, but it was worth every mile to be with the girl he had totally fallen for. 
 
Their beautiful wedding day was a quintessential summer day in New England. The sun was shining and a soft sweet breeze blew through the gardens of blooms. In the middle of gorgeous gardens brimming with flowers of every color of the rainbow, surrounded by their loved ones Kelly and Tim read their hand written vows to one another. They spoke the words that were written all over their hearts, promising that every day they would wake up and choose one another over and over again. That they would be true, authentic and loyal and always celebrate the other for doing the same. As they spoke their vows to one another, you knew they were and are leaving a legacy of love that generations to come will feel the impact and beauty of, wanting nothing less for themselves because they know it truly exists. 
 
Kelly & Tim - Thank you thank you thank you. Thank you for giving us the great honor of witnessing and documenting such a special and beautiful day! We wish you nothing but love, happiness, and adventure for years to come! Congrats again!

Lace Factory Wedding | Kate & Bryan

Published in Weddings
Kate's friend convinced her for their girls night out that they should check out the local club, you know, change things up a bit then normal Friday night. And thank goodness she did! Kate quickly caught the eye of Bryan who was there with a few of his friends. Bryan elbowed his friend and said he was going to go talk to the beautiful girl over there, and with that he walked over to Kate and struck up a conversation. Just.like.that. The two hit it off, talked the night away and exchanged phone numbers. Their paths had never crossed before and they had no mutual friends, so their meeting was truly serendipitous!  
 
For their first date, Kate insisted that she would just meet Bryan at the restaurant since she was staying with her parents but Bryan insisted it was okay and that he would pick her up at her parent's house... annnnnnd meet her parents! Yup, Bryan met Kate's parents on their very first date! It's a good thing he made a great first impression because it was the first date of hundreds more for these two! 
 
Kate and Bryan's wedding at The Lace Factory was a dream from beginning to end! They celebrated and danced the night away under twinkling lights with loved ones, only stopping for some Ben & Jerry's ice cream and another round of champagne! 
 
Kate & Bryan - Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making us feel like part of your family and giving us the great honor of being a small part of your big day! Here's to you and decades upon decades of love and happiness!

Tappan Hill Mansion Wedding | Kim & Andrew

Published in Weddings
If I'm being honest, when I sat down to write this blog post for Andrew and Kim's wedding, I struggled with finding the right words to say. I wrote a few sentences then hit the delete button deciding that those words weren't good enough to describe what their wedding day was. Because honestly there are simply no words that would ever do justice in describing the joy, love, and happiness that their wedding was filled with.  
 
There were tears of happiness in the quite moments as they signed the Ketubah surrounded by those that love them dearly. There was the kind of laughter that comes from the tips of your toes and is good for the soul when Andrew may or may not have been able to break the cup during the ceremony the first three attempt(s). There were poems read, champagne glasses toasted and a choreographed first dance that looked like it was straight out of the movies. But most important it had a couple who are one another's everything and committed to one another until the end of forever. 
 
It was a wedding celebration that had all the elements that made it unexplainably epic. 
 
Kim & Andrew. Thank you. Just thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. We adore you two and had so much fun witnessing and documenting the amazing celebration your wedding was! Thank you for inviting us to be part of your day!

Whitby Castle Wedding | Joanna & John

Published in Weddings
His aunt and her grandma kind of deserve a pat on the back for their matchmaking skills. They were great friends in Florida, and wouldn't you know they both had family around the same area up New York. The two woman tried their hardest to get these two to meet and John's aunt even brought him a printed photo of Joanna to remind him to reach out to her! Joanna and John met once but it wasn't until years later when Joanna liked a Facebook status of Johns that the two started messaging on Facebook. The messages turned into phone calls, turned into dates, turned into the beginning of their story. And they owe it all to their amazing matchmakers who knew they were meant for one another long before they did! 
 
What an amazing way it was to start our wedding season this year with their breathtaking Whitby Castle wedding! It was a day that felt like a real life painting come to life... A joyous celebration in a beautiful castle bursting with love, laughter and amazing moments that leave you simply breathless. 
 
Joanna & John - You two are so very special and we can't begin to express our gratitude for inviting us to be part of this amazing chapter in your lives! Congrats again you two!
