Crabtree Kittle House Wedding | Stephanie & Stephen

Published in Weddings
I can't believe this was our last wedding of the year and that our season is already over! This wedding season has been completely amazing from the very beginning and what better way to end it then with the gorgeous wedding of Stephanie and Stephen! I mean, with a super sweet couple, a totally fun bridal party, design and coordination by one of our favs Amy Champagne Events, that New England fall foliage and DONUTS... you can't go wrong! :) It had all the makings of a beautiful and memorable celebration and that is exactly what their day was... 
 
Each time I blog one of our couple's weddings, there are some moments that stand out when thinking back and reminiscing about their day. Like all of our couples, with Stephanie and Stephen's wedding there were so many that flood my memory, but one of them has to be when Stephanie was walking down the aisle on the arm of her father at the beginning of the ceremony... The excited look on Stephanie's face and her father winking as he walked the first of his five daughters to the man of her dreams. This moment lasted for only a half second but the photo of the two of them ensures it will last forever. Definitely a moment I will always cherish. And oh how Chris and I loved spending time with the newlyweds at their gorgeous venue, the Crabtree's Kittle House, taking in the crisp fall air and colors and seeing how joyful and excited they were to officially be Mr and Mrs! 
 
Stephanie & Stephen - Your wedding day was simply beautiful and full of moments and memories that make us love what we do as photographers even more. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the honor to document your big day!

Glen Island Harbour Club Wedding | Lauren & Sebastian

Glen Island Harbour Club Wedding | Lauren & Sebastian

Published in Weddings
I remember like it was yesterday... the first day I met Lauren & Sebastian. There they sat on my white couch across the coffee table from me in my home, holding hands and beaming. Lauren began to tell the story of how they met at Norwalk Community College and couldn't stop looking at Sebastian while recalling the beginning of their relationship. She must have said what a sweet and great guy she thought he was when they first met at least a dozen times, with this look of a girl totally head over heels in love with the man of her dreams. Sebastian added in details she left out of the story with a joy and heart clearly bursting with that happiness that comes when you are with your soul mate. It was right from then, from he very beginning, I could tell they were a special couple.  
 
Lauren and Sebastian had class together at NCC and one day he walked up to her introduced himself and they struck up a conversation. Yes, just like that. Lauren was impressed by this sweet guy with a heart of gold. After talking more and more when they saw one another at school, Lauren told her mom about Sebastian and the great conversations they had and her mom looked at her like only a mom can and said, "he likes you!" Lauren didn't really think so but as weeks turned into months eventually Lauren knew what her mom had been telling her all along, that Sebastian liked her. When Lauren finally said that she thought her mom was right and that Sebastian liked her, all her mom could do was say "Oh really.... Duh!" with a huge grin on her face! Safe to say the feeling was mutual, Lauren was smitten! 
 
Lauren and Sebastian's Glen Island Harbour Club wedding was absolutely breathtaking from beginning to end, with exquisite details and sweet moments. A little sparkle and a lot of joy filled their day, and the excitement that I witnessed the first time I met them was there throughout the celebration... times a million. It was a once in a lifetime celebration that won't soon be forgotten! 
 
Lauren & Sebastian - The love you have and the excitement you share just being together is undeniable. What a joy it has been getting to know you both since that day we sat around our coffee table in our home and heard about your love story and the plans for the next chapter of your lives. We adore you both and couldn't be happier for you! Congrats!

Goodspeed Riverhouse Wedding | Alora & Frank

Published in Weddings
Frank wanted to ask Alora to marry her on her birthday weekend, before her actually birthday. So the day before her birthday they took their adorable chocolate pup Baily for a hike and swim at Lake Wintergreen. Frank thought during their hike would be a perfect time to pop the question, but before he could ask a thunderstorm rolled in and had them heading back to the car and his plan foiled! Later that day they decided to go to the restaurant Sage for dinner with its beautiful waterfront views. Alora and Frank walked around the deck along the water and Frank thought this could be the perfect place, but soon noticed what seemed like the entire restaurant watching them out the floor-to-ceiling windows and decided to nix the idea of proposing then with a full audience of strangers. Eventually the two headed to Milford where they had plans to meet up with friends for drinks later that evening. They arrived early so they decided to drive around to waste some time before finally parking at the Green to wait for their friends. 
 
The ring at this point was burning a hole in Frank's pocket and he asked Alora if she wanted to sit on the park bench right near their car to get some fresh air. Alora said she didn't really want to and with a smile opened the sunroof of the car as if to give Frank some fresh air! Lol She noticed at this point that Frank was noticeably flustered and asked him if everything was okay. Frank took out the beautiful ring he had picked out and said to her "I've been trying to do this all day!" The happy tears began to stream down both of their faces as Frank asked Alora to spend the rest of her life with him. 
 
To know Frank and Alora, is to know two of the most genuine, thoughtful and sweetest people you will ever meet. Their kindness and joy is truly refreshing. They don't take themselves too seriously and there is never a lack of laughter between them. Being around them, you can't help but feel happy and the zest they have for life! Their beautiful wedding at the Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station was a celebration filled with everything you would expect from these two amazing people becoming Mr & Mrs! 
 
Alora & Frank - We have loved every single second of getting to know you both over the past 1.5+ years and your wedding was a beautiful reflection of how special you two are. It was beautiful, overflowing with laughter and so much fun with all those that love you so immensely. Thank you for inviting us to be part of this chapter of your lives!

Classic Eolia Mansion Wedding | Wendy & Todd

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!
