Norwalk Shore & Country Club Wedding | Kristen & Rich

Published in Weddings
Kristen kept an eye on the new teacher, watching him interact with the students and demonstrate his teaching abilities. After all, she was supervising and making sure that the new teacher was following procedure and performing at the level expected. Weeks turned into months and the teacher, Rich, began to invite Kristen to attend events with him, to which she declined. Kristen declined twice, but if you ask Rich it was at least three times! Her reasoning? She was busy. Like very busy. Anyone who knows Kristen knows that she puts her heart and focus 110% into what she is doing, which at the time was solely her teaching career. But anyone who knows Rich, knows that he was quite smitten with Kristen and wasn't going to let her get away. And Rich, well he definitely caught Kristen's eye too and eventually they went to the zoo on their first date. It was from then on their beautiful love story bloomed... 
 
Kristen & Rich wed in a beautiful ceremony in Kristen's hometown in Westport CT followed by a gorgeous waters edge celebration at Norwalk Shore and Country Club! The sunset that evening was like the ones you only think exists in paintings. That rich golden light just streamed across the water and flooded over the candle lit tables filled with family and friends. It was simply breathtaking. 
 
Kristen & Rich - Your wedding was an incredible and beautiful celebration of love and the beginning of your marriage! We are so honored and grateful we got to be a small part of it and witness the beginning of the rest of your lives together as husband and wife!

Fox Hill Inn Wedding | Heather & Ed

Fox Hill Inn Wedding | Heather & Ed

Published in Weddings
The soft glow from the chandeliers and flickering candles cast shadows against the walls... There was a quiet excitement as Heather made her way down the grand staircase, stopping just short of the bottom few steps. Right around the corner at the bottom of the stairs stood the love of her life, Ed. In less then an hour Heather would be walking down the aisle to Ed and the two would become husband and wife! 
 
With their backs to each other and without seeing one another, they slowly reached around the corner of the wall and clasp hands one last time before saying I Do. Their hearts were beating fast as the squeezed one another's hands and told the other how excited they were to become Mr and Mrs. It was such a beautiful sweet moment - one of many during their wedding at the Fox Hill Inn! 
 
Heather & Ed - Thank you for choosing us to be the ones to document your special day! Wishing you all the happiness!

Fairfield Patterson Club Wedding | Jenna & Andy

Published in Weddings
Their first dance was just so completely them. It was filled with so many of the things that make Jenna and Andy the amazing couple they are... It was fun. It was carefree. It was sweet. It had heart. As soon as the newlyweds were announced, instead of a slow song a fast upbeat one flooded the dance floor. You could see the smiles of their friends and family surrounding the dance floor grow bigger and bigger. It was just so Jenny and Andy. These two live with heart and pour themselves into all they do - for others, for each other. And let me tell you, they poured themselves into dancing and owned that dance floor all night long! They were breaking it down and busting moves like I have never seen before! You can tell they have fun together whether they are talking about organic farming, getting coffee, or dancing the night away. They have a sweet love that is the kind storybooks are made of and how amazing it was for us to photograph it. 
 
The newlyweds celebrated with their guests at the Patterson Club in Fairfield County and with twinkling lights, gorgeous blooms, and bubbly champagne, it was quite the soirĂ©e! 
 
Jenna & Andy - You two are so beyond kind and your wedding was absolutely perfection! We are so grateful our paths crossed and that we had the honor of capturing your wedding celebration!

Key West Beach Rock The Dress Session

Key West Beach Rock The Dress Session

Published in Weddings
It's no secret that one of my favorite things to photograph are Rock The Dress sessions, but it may not be for the reasons you would expect. A Rock The Dress session is a photo shoot sometime after a couple's wedding - it could be a day, week, month or year after. Really it can be whenever, wherever. It's a beautiful session where I have the freedom to photograph a couple when the sunlight is the most ideal, take our time with no schedule restrictions and select a perfect location.  
 
Some call it a "Trash the Dress" session, but because I know some of my bride's would prefer not to truly ruin their wedding gowns, I call it a "Rock the Dress" session! :) 
 
So why is this kind of session one of my favorite things to photograph? Well besides the reasons above, these unique sessions are a sweet symphony of love, candidness, and reminiscing. It's so beautiful to hear the couple remember the happiest day of their life and see the day through their eyes - the moments that moved them the most. The feelings they will never forget. All the tangible details that helped make their amazing wedding what it was - the flowers, the cake, the gown, the music - have all faded, but what remains are two people married and so deeply in love. The heart of their wedding wasn't about these details anyway, but about two souls coming together and being bonded forever as husband and wife.  
 
We photographed Kim and Mike's Rock the Dress session the day after Key West destination wedding earlier this month and it was everything and more. It was the day after their wedding, but even more importantly, it was the first full day of their marriage. Being able to photograph them on THAT special day was such an honor. And amazing. And beautiful. And moving. And did I say amazing?! Lucky for Chris and I, these two newlyweds were up for anything and down for whatever. With their first day of marriage, a breathtaking Key West sunset, and wading into the ocean, this session still leaves me swooning and daydreaming!! 
 
Here are just a few of my favorites from their beach Rock the Dress session! And to see their gorgeous wedding, feel free to click here.

Key West Casa Marina Destination Wedding | Kim & Mike

Published in Weddings
It's no surprise that this beautiful and fun loving couple had an equally beautiful and filled-to-the-brim fun destination wedding celebration! Kim and Mike tied the knot right along the shore in gorgeous Key West surrounded by their family and friends... Oh, and one more very important family member: their beloved pup Dexter! Anyone who knows Kim & Mike knows of their love for Dex and knows there was no way he wasn't going to walk down the aisle and be part of the celebration!  
 
The breathtaking Casa Marina Waldorf Astoria provided a gorgeous space for their nuptials and celebration! Glistening white sand, emerald palm trees, crystal waters, and bubbling champagne created a feast for their guests' every sense. It.was.perfection. Steel drum music and the sound of the water lapping against the shore filled the air and set the tone for what would be a magical night!  
 
But one of my absolute favorite moments from their day has to be when they walked out on the docks as husband and wife to take in the spectacular sunset that only Key West has. It was beautiful to watch everything else just fade away as the newlyweds stand the middle of the water. It was quiet, beautiful and a once in a lifetime moment to witness.  
 
Kim & Mike - We absolutely adore you two and feel deeply honored we could be there with you on your big day! Thank you for having us be a part of it and for showing and sharing this beautiful place with us!
