Wedding Date: May 13th, 2017

Their paths have crossed many times, and if younger Heather could have told older Heather, she’d be marrying her best friend from years ago, they would have been at the alter a lot sooner. Heather and Mike have been friends for what seems like forever. They just get one another. They love and support one another and share a common bond over donuts. Every Sunday, they travel to Shelton, CT to pick up fresh donuts. It was only fitting that they had a whole bar of donuts to chose from on their wedding night. 

This laid back couple had a rainy wedding day. It was not just a little rain, it was a Nor’easter. Plans had to change from being married outside at the Lounsbury House, to indoors. Inside the Lounsbury House is just as stunning though. The beautiful chandeliers and the wrap around staircase is a perfect backdrop for an indoor wedding. Heather & Mike were married by Mayor Mark Boughton from Danbury, CT. It was a perfectly perfect ceremony. The wedding continued with cocktail hour and formal photos on the porch of the house. Heather and Mike were even brave enough to step into the rain with me for a few pictures in the downpour! They danced the night away surrounded by family and friends inside the middle of the Lounsbury House. Here are my favorites from their wedding day!

Karrin and Alex met at the YMCA where they both worked. Karrin was completing her student teaching with me and towards the end, she started telling me about this great guy named Alex who she worked with. While they were working together, they immediately hit it off and the rest is history. 

Karrin and Alex both prepared for their wedding day down the street from The Society Room at the Hartford Hilton. Both Alex and Karrin were surrounded by their families and their friends as they prepared for their big day. Alex’s dad had a traditional pre-wedding toast with some of his closest family in the suite on the top floor before heading to the venue. Karrin and her bridesmaids walked over to the venue first carrying their dresses down the cobblestone Pratt Street in Hartford. Alex and his groomsmen followed shortly after.  

Their wedding took place in the reception hall of The Society Room. Their wedding was everything you could dream it to be,… especially the look on Alex’s face as Karrin came down the isle with her dad. The party continued as the night went on with thier DJ- Sean Turner keeping the dance floor rockin! Such a fun, unforgettable wedding! Enjoy my favorites from their wedding day!

Wedding Dates: December 30th & December 31st, 2016

Stacy and Aaron put together one of the most intimate, private weddings that I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. They rented a private estate in New Milford, CT (literally right down the road from me), that had a perfect set up and an amazing property. It only took an hour or so for their friend Mike to convert the house to a wedding venue. The first night of their celebration included a first look, ceremony, a catered dinner, family formals and then a dance party with a DJ at the house. During dinner, Sean (aka: Big Daddy) sang beautifully, and before the end of the night had all the guests rockin the dance floor! 

The best part about renting this house for their wedding? They stayed at the venue BOTH nights of their wedding. Everything was there, all in one place. The first night included mostly family and the second night was mostly friends to celebrate their wedding the night before.

On the 2nd night of their wedding celebration, a catered dinner followed up with sparklers outside and a DJ’ed dance party for night two. The DJ kept the dance floor rocking as the night carried on! What a great way to celebrate a marriage of two very laid back, tons of fun, people! Here are my favorites from their wedding day! Enjoy!!

Wedding Date: December 3rd, 2016

What a beautiful month to be married in! I feel like December is far too often overlooked as a consideration for a wedding because of all of the holidays and parties, but it should not be left out! The details and the gorgeous decorations that donned Tarrywile Mansion should make it one of the premier spots for holiday parties or weddings!

And this couple, what a sweet, down to earth, fun couple. I had a great time with Brandon and Catherine this past weekend celebrating their marriage with 30 of their closest friends and family. Brandon and Catherine got ready at the mansion and chose to have a first look outside. It was a cool 40 degrees but they did not let the weather bother them one bit. They met outside the mansion and then proceeded up to the grape arbor with me for a few more formal photographs. As we headed down to the mansion, family and friends had started to arrive for their ceremony. They were married by a JP with a great personality! After the ceremony, family formals took place in the atrium of the mansion before they headed over to the other rooms to enjoy cocktail hour. Their first dance was a unique hip-hop song that had their family bopping along with them as they danced. As dinner began, Brandon gave a sweet toast to thank everyone for being there and stating how he is looking forward to many more adventures with his wife! Cheers to the newlyweds! Here are a few of my favorites from their wedding day!
