Jessica and Ryan have such a great county life. It was important to them that they tie in a little bit of country where they could. The details, the girls cowboy boots, the mason jars, made for a  perfect country theme! Their wedding day at the beautiful Club at River Oaks was the just the place for them to tie the knot. They were married in front of the old barn and silo right on the property. The weather could not have been more picture perfect for their June wedding, low 70’s with a slight breeze and a few clouds in the sky!

Jessica got ready for her wedding day at her house with her best girlfriends, her mom and their cute Golden Retriever Riley. Ryan got ready for their wedding day in the hotel room before heading up to the Club at River Oaks for the final touches. They had their first look right by the silo and then we headed off in the golf cart for BrideGroom formals around the golf course. Jessica’s mom tied a small little locket picture of her brother, Jess’s Uncle. When I asked more about him, Jess said he was the “fun Uncle” that everyone loved to have around! 

After their first look, Riley stuck around for some family pictures and their florist, Flowers by Nancy, made the cutest flower collar for her!  Their ceremony was a short and sweet ceremony. Jessica’s mom made ribbon wands for everyone to wave as Jessica and Ryan came down the isle as husband and wife. Her mom also spent countless hours working on all of the Pinterest details that Jess was hoping for on her wedding day.  The cocktail hour was set up on the outside patio before heading into the reception hall. The Dj kept the dance floor rocking all night. Cheers to the next chapter for these two!

Regina and Dave could not have had better weather for their wedding day! It was a perfect, 70 degrees, light breeze sunny day! Regina and Dave both prepared for their wedding in the same hotel but on different floors and in different rooms. They were surrounded by their family and friends. Regina’s bouquet donned her grandmothers rosary beads. Their family and friends gathered at a local church to witness them tie the knot. 

The intermission between church and reception is a perfect time to relax and take some beautiful photos. We traveled to Gouveia Vineyards for some family formals and the BrideGroom formals. Gouveia has a perfect backdrop for some stunning images and if you don’t mind a little attention, this is the perfect place to go! As we walked thought the vineyards to take some photos, every group we passed congratulated Regina and Dave and some people went as far as clapping and hollering for the newlyweds! What a fun way to take your bridegroom formals!

The reception was well run by the staff at the WoodWinds Wedding and Banquet facility. The dance floor was bumpin all night compliments of the fantastic DJ, Paul from James Daniel Entertainment. The evening ending with a little messy cake cutting followed up with a pretty sparkler exit. Here are my favorites from their wedding day! Cheers to the newlyweds!

Caitlin & Alex met when they were living in CT. They started dating but their love and happiness took them out to Colorado for the last two years. Alex proposed to Caitlin on the ice rink at Rockefeller Plaza. Caitlin’s sister was there to video the whole thing happen! Kylie even turned this video in to a video for Caitlin and Alex about their love story that was shown after her maid of honor speech.

Caitlin and Alex could not have had a more perfect day in May for their wedding. It was sunny, 68 degrees and a few puffy white clouds in the sky. There was even a slight breeze that would come rushing by every now and then. Caitlin had her hair and make-up done in her home town of New Milford surrounded by her best girlfriends and her mom. Alex met up with his friends at the hotel to get ready for their big day. 

Alex and Caitlin had a unique lock ceremony during their vows. They had 2 antique locks that had their wedding bands on them. The junior groomsman brought the chain of keys down the isle and he handed over the keys to unlock the locks.  Once the locks were taken apart, they were put together on a frame and locked on there tight. What a great way to remember their ceremony and their pledge to love one another forever in a frame! 

Their reception carried on into the early evening with great jams played by Chris from Powerstation Events. At the desert bar, not only was there a make your own ice cream station, there was also a donut station! What a wonderful way to start their lives together! Here are my favorites from their wedding day! Cheers!

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!
