Chris and I are so blessed to have the most incredible wedding couples year after year. Their love stories are inspiring and their weddings are the most beautiful and memorable celebrations one could ever witness. They are one-of-a-kind once-in-a-lifetime kind of celebrations brought to life by incredible teams of vendors! 
 
So we always have such a great excitement and appreciation when their stories and weddings are featured in various publications and shared with the world!  
 
We are so honored to receive the 2015 Editors Choice Award for Two Bright Lights again this year! A huge thank you to all of the publications that have featured our work and our couples!

Featured: Style Me Pretty CT

My bride Kaitlyn's reaction to having her wedding featured on Style Me Pretty yesterday was priceless! 
 
"MARK & I ARE ON STYLE ME PRETTY WEDDING BLOG!!!! As I was couponing Mark shouted from the other room... "Hey honey we were featured in some kind of blog post from David." I put down my scissors (which was a very smart idea as you will see) and proceeded to go to the post. I then screamed at the top of my lungs (sorry neighbors and men outside shoveling) because that "post" was only on Style Me Pretty which is my favorite wedding blog of all time. I am still skipping, crying, and smiling as I write this post. I think I am shaking too but I cant really tell because I am too busy being happy and excited about this right now. Little girls dream about marrying their prince one day and women dream about have their wedding featured on this blog. I have had both happen and am sincerely the luckiest girl in the world. 
 
A million thank you's and love again to my amazing wedding vendors (you are all featured on here too!) Especially David Ruzicka, Ashley Therese Poisella, and Christopher Poisella who gave me the second biggest surprise of my life. (The first being when Mark got down on his knee.) I am beyond words happy right now!!!"
 
 
I share in their excitement and are thrilled to have their Gwyn Careg Inn wedding featured on Style Me Pretty Connecticut! To read the full feature and watch their wedding video click here and to see the blog post I wrote on their wedding and more photos, feel free to click here!

New Haven Lawn Club Wedding | Rachel & Harry

If you ask them, they were two lost souls looking for their mate. If you ask anyone who knows them, fate just hadn't crossed these soulmates paths yet. And little did either one of them know when they signed up for the dating website OKCupid everything would change and they would be that much closer to meeting their other half. They had no idea that their initial conversations filled with jokes and laughter would eventually lead to their amazing wedding day.  
 
Rachel and Harry couldn't be more perfect for one another. They are two of the funniest, care-free and loving people you will ever meet. Being around them reminds you of some of the things that are really important in a relationship: love, laughter, and enjoying the little things. And wouldn't you know their New Haven Lawn Club wedding was also filled with all of these things. Their black tie affair was quite the celebration! Outside the blustery wind was blowing and the raindrops could be heard tapping on the window panes. But with the soft candlelight filling the spaces, the fireplaces roaring, and the crystals twinkling in the light, the rain only added to the romantic, warm, and beautiful setting inside. And right then and there with all their loved ones gathered, Rachel and Harry tied the knot and somewhere cupid patted himself on the back for a job well done! 
 
Rachel & Harry - It's couples like you that make us fall even more in love with what we do. Really and truly. Thank you for always making us laugh and for reminding those around you of what's really important. We can't begin to tell you how grateful we are to have been part of your big day! Congrats again you two!









Something about this I just totally love...!



THIS girl. Rachel, you are SO incredibly beautiful!

Loved the look on Rachel's dad face when he saw her for the first time all dolled up in her wedding dress!


And what a sweet First Look... One of my favorite things to photograph!








L-O-V-E!


Oh how we just adore these two! With their constant smiles and up for anything attitudes you would never have know it was a freezing 30 degrees outside while we were taking photos!







Such sweet bridesmaids! Had so much fun with this ladies!





I believe Harry told his guys to strike a pose for the next One Direction album cover... LOL




Their letterpress invitations from Twin Ravens Press were AH-mazing!

With their immediate family and friends gathered close, they signed the ketubah. There were tears, smiles, prayers, and hand squeezes. It was a indescribably beautiful moment... a breathtaking one all those present will never forget.














We always love working with the uber talented Fleurescent and photographing her beautiful floral creations!

West Point Hotel Thayer Wedding | Kate & Tom

Even know they call California home now, they have New York City to thank for their paths crossing and their stories becoming intertwined. Among the millions of people living and working in the Big Apple, the city got just a little bit smaller when these two found each other against all odds. Wouldn't you know they both just happened to commute on the very same Coach USA bus to work in NYC?! Yup, a bus. It's like straight out of a movie where after watching it you swear people don't really just happen to meet their soul mates on a subway or bus... But they are proof that it can happen. This forensic accountant and comedian fell for one another and their friends can vouch for the fact that when they talked about one another after meeting, it was different. Their words were filled with the excitement of having met the one your heart was meant for. 
 
It's no surprise that Kate and Tom's wedding was filled with laughter and an incredible thankfulness. A thankfulness to now be able to call one another husband and wife and a thankfulness to have their family and friends there to celebrate with them. Their Thayer Hotel wedding at West Point had all the elements for the setting of a breathtaking affair... from the changing colors of the autumn leaves, views of the river, and rolling mountains in the backdrop. Champagne was toasted, string lights twinkled, and the dance floor was filled to the brim! 
 
Kate & Tom - You are such an incredible and sweet couple! Truly. Your laughter and happiness bring such joy to all those around you! Thank you for inviting us to be part of your wedding and witness such beautiful moments.








Seriously the cutest little flower girls!



THIS GIRL. Kate you are stunning!












There was something about this quiet little moment right after the ceremony that was so incredibly sweet. I just love everything about it.








FAVORITE!


These two!! One of my favorites from their day!
