Alexa + Michael
Plainfield, Connecticut
WEDDING

6.30.18





 Alexa and Michael are this super relaxed, fun loving couple who you immediately feel comfortable around. 
I first had the chance to work with them on their engagement photos last year and it felt more like walking around town with good friends than a typical photo shoot. 
When it came time for their wedding I knew it was going to be a good time. Their inner circle of friends are all equally cool and kept the day really relaxed and fun. 
To say the day was hot would be a gross understatement. 
Our first major heat wave of the season came just in time for their intimate backyard wedding. A beautiful tented ceremony and reception in the backyard of Alexa's parents home. All of the décor was really on point and was done by Alexa and her family. It turned out amazing.

Still despite the warm temperatures the day was nothing short of magical. Michael's big smile and Alexa's easy going personality overcame the soaring heat. 
When it came time for the ceremony the sun had set far enough behind the tent that it actually started to feel a little more bearable or that might just have been heat exhaustion setting in!
Michael's sister did the honors of officiating the ceremony and even got a little choked up herself when it came time for the vows. 
The good vibes kept rolling on throughout the reception as the best man, maid of honor and Alexa's mom shared good stories and a couple of embarrasing ones as well which are always fun to hear!

We had so much fun working with Alexa and Michael through this whole process and wish them a lifetime of happiness.

6.23.18
WEDDING





Couples love us! See our reviews on The Knot.

We were stressing this one. The weather forecast was looking like a washout just 24 hours before the big day. 
Luckily the morning downpours moved out just in time for the first look and stayed away right through the ceremony and reception. 


Eric lost it as his beautiful bride made her way down the aisle. 
He managed to keep it together til it came time for their personal vows. 
Eventually he made his way through them with a big smile and teary eyes. 
And confirmed his vows with a "Hell, *&$# yes!"

Their wedding party was comprised of the nicest group of people you could ask for. 
Of course they were there to party. (Where did those boys keep finding cases of beer?!)
The reception was on point with plenty of dancing and mingling thanks to Mark and Patrick who kept the crowd laughing. 
Wrights of course knocked it out of the park with its killer food and attention to detail. 
They even get involved and showed the crowd how to do the wobble later in the evening.
The night was capped off with a picturesque sparkler send off.

We can't say enough great things about Stephanie and Eric and everyone involved in making this day so special. 
Wish we could do it all over again!

Now moving on to why you are all here. 
The pictures!

WEDDING

Couples love us! See our reviews on The Knot.
Kate and Drew celebrated with family and their crazy crew on a beautiful Friday afternoon on the waters of Crystal Lake Golf Club. 
The girls got ready while rocking out to lil Wayne. The boys got ready in the parking lot after a morning of golf(seriously right in the lot). 
This tight knit group are more like family than friends and make you feel like you're just one of the gang. 

 

When it was time to get hitched, the boys took a short boat ride across the lake to a private wooded area for the ceremony. 
Sitting on the shores of Crystal lake with built in benches and a rustic wooden pergola the ceremony location is a picture perfect spot. 

Kate looked absolutely stunning in her Hayley Paige dress! Her flowers by The Sunshine Shop pulled everything together. Really a beautiful ceremony to witness and document.


DJ Marty once again kept the party rocking and this group came ready to dance! Oh and by the way instead of a traditional wedding cake this couple had PVD Donuts!!!

We were so happy to have shared in this day! 
We wish them the best of luck!

Enjoy.

WEDDING



 


Couples love us! See our reviews on The Knot.
Angela and Tom chose to celebrate their union on top of the scenic hills of Spencer, Massachusetts at the gorgeous Zukas Hill Top Barn. 
The venue features rolling hills, large stone walls, and views that go on for miles. 

The private suite on site is the perfect location for the girls to get ready with its fully functional salon and spa. 
There are no shortage of locations for photos from their glass greenhouse,  to its many gardens and open fields and stone walls. 
The ceremony site is set up on the hilltop and has the most beautiful views of Spencer's rolling valley below.

Thank goodness the weather cooperated and we enjoyed a comfortable breeze and big white clouds all afternoon. 
The ceremony was simple and sweet, topped off by Angela and Tom exchanging white roses to each other. 

Angela's sisters and Tom's brother kicked off the reception with funny and personal toasts. 
The rest of the night was dancing and a good time!

We were so happy to have had the privilege of working with Angela and Tom not only with their engagement photos but also for their wedding. 
Here are a highlight of some of our favorite moments from the wedding.

Engagement




Couples love us! See our reviews on The Knot.
I don't blog every engagement shoot we do. But I am always excited to find new spots to shoot,
And when you have a couple that can make that new spot look killer we have to share!
Wilcox park is in the heart of Westerly, Rhode Island. The park itself has massive, mature trees and beautiful stone stairs. 
But it's what surrounds the park that is the real gem.
This hip town is a perfect backdrop for engagement photos.
The elegant store fronts and historic buildings that house little pubs are stunning in photos. 
Plus you're never that far from great smelling food!
Lindsey and Ryan rocked this garden/urban engagement shoot! 
We can't wait to photograph their wedding next year. 
Here is a small sampling of some of our favorite frames.

6.2.18
WEDDING




Couples love us! See our reviews on The Knot.
I first met Vanessa and Dave when we photographed their engagement shoot at Harkness Park. Of course, we had to reschedule like 5 times because it was always raining.
So it was no surprise that on the day of their wedding some drops would fall from the sky. And by some we mean a deluge, with thunder and lightning. The works!
But this didn't damper the mood at all for these two. Vanessa is the definition of optimism, and knew in her heart that the rain would stop before the ceremony.
Good thing because she had quite the surprise for her guests.
Most brides roll in with a limo, some with a fancy classic car.
Vanessa flew in on a private helicopter!

Of course she was right, the rain had at least for the time being stopped.
Vanessa tried to hold it together through the funny and emotional ceremony.
The rest of the night was all about the party - and DJ Marty, as always kept the crowd going.
Though they didn't need much prodding as they came ready to dance!

We have been so lucky to have had the chance to work with Vanessa & Dave for their engagement and now their wedding.
They are a great down to earth couple and we so happy to have been their to witness the joyful occasion with their friends and family.
Enjoy the photos!

WEDDING

Couples love us! See our reviews on The Knot.
MC and Kellen's wedding at the beautiful Woodway Beach Club in Stamford, Connecticut made for the perfect location for these two love birds. 
Their day was a perfect blend of quaint quiet moments while the girls got ready at MC's parents home.
Kellen and the boys were sipping whiskey while chilling at the hotel just down the street from the venue. 

Rain quickly came in just before the ceremony but that wasn't going to put a damper on this bride and groom. 
The ceremony was funny and emotional as MC and Kellen shared their own unique vows.
The rain was quick to exit and behind it were some of the most pleasant ocean breezes you can imagine. 

Relax and chill was the theme of cocktail hour. Guests got to enjoy the sinking sun while sipping cocktails and
playing cornhole on some custom boards made by Kellen himself. 

The reception was all about the party. And party they did! MC & Kellen kicked off the festivities with an inclusive first dance. 
The band kept the crowd going all night till the sparkler send off capped off the perfect day.

We were so privileged to photograph this wonderful bride and groom on their wedding day.
We wish them all the best in all their future endeavors.  
Enjoy!

Middletown, Connecticut
5.4.18
WEDDING

Couples love us! See our reviews on The Knot.

Kristin and Dave's wedding was a vintage bohemian brides dream come true. The Pavilion on Crystal Lake located in Middletown, Connecticut made for a perfect backdrop.  
Kristen and Dave have a quiet, calm demeanor about them that was refreshing to be around. Many weddings are so jam packed with events that its hard for couples to enjoy the day itself. We were so happy for Kristin and Dave that they embraced those quiet times together. That's what the day is all about. Celebrating each other!
And snacking on all the great appetizers! 
Of course, they love Star Wars and Harry Potter, so May 4th was such a fitting date for their wedding. And it made for a great hashtag! (#MayThe4thBeWithYou)

Their ceremony fit together perfectly with their vintage vibes under twinkle lights of the Pavilion's pine forest. 
The reception was filled with positive vibes and great food!

Thank you to Kristin and Dave and their family for all your cooperation and support!
Enjoy!

4.14.18
WEDDING


Couples love us! See our reviews on The Knot.

Natasha and Jonathan rocked their rustic elegant wedding at the always gorgeous Barns at Weselyan Hills located in Middletown, Connecticut. 

To say the day was filled with emotion would be a dramatic understatement. 
Sometimes when we step into a bridal suite you can hear a pin drop. 
Not these girls, I think the building could have fallen down around them and they wouldn't even have noticed. 
The room was filled with shrieks, laughing, and moments of crying. Mostly from Natasha's sister, Stephanie. 

 The crying continued on into the ceremony because of a special surprise that Natasha and Jono planned(only the officiant, my wife & I knew). 
After an already romantic and sweet ceremony the newlyweds surprised everyone by inviting up Natasha's grandparents. 
This sweet little couple, who are both in their 90's are celebrating 70 years of marriage!
While everyone wiped away tears these two love birds renewed their vows, in French!

The fun just kept on coming with awesome bridal party entrances, and hysterical, heartfelt speeches.

 The backstreet boys a favorite of Natasha & her girls blasted out the speakers all night long. 

Stephanie had one last surprise for her sister and new brother in-law when she brought in their pup child.

We were so excited to be a part of this wonderful day.
We hope you guys enjoy viewing the photos as much as we enjoyed taking them.

MaryBeth & Dan 
The North House
Avon, Connecticut

MB & Dan sealed their love for each other on a bright crisp March day in historic Avon, Connecticut. 
They exchanged vows in a quaint chapel located on the grounds of Old Avon Farms. This place has so much character and history!  It felt like everyone in the chapel had a front row seat.

This spot holds a deep connection to Dan because it's also where he attended school. Guests held up streamers that blew in the breeze as the new bride & groom made their exit as Mr. & Mrs.

They shared their wedding date with another popular day in March, St. Patrick's day!
You could feel the spirit of the much celebrated Irish holiday in the air. 
Shades of green could be seen on many of the guests, including the bridal party who wore festive tartan shawls of navy and green.  Dan also sported a green bow tie. 

The reception which was held at the North House, also in Avon, was filled with so much energy and heartfelt moments. So much fun to be able to witness and document! 
(If you haven't seen The North House recently you are in for quite the surprise! It looks amazing after a recent reno!)

We are truly thankful to have been chosen to document this beautiful wedding day!  Such an honor.

// Vintage Hollywood Glam Wedding //
Hartford City Hall
Styled Shoot

11.18.17


 We love rustic, boho style weddings with open fields at sunset, but at the same time we are never content shooting one particular style of wedding. 
I think the great thing about our particular style of shooting is that it can transcend a variety of themes and styles. 
We wanted to show our cinematic, film throw back style in a city environment.
We quickly settled on a vintage Hollywood glam theme.
We wanted to capture that dramatic, cool kids club feeling you get when looking at retro Hollywood photographs. 

Generally speaking, when shooting weddings we try and keep that 'natural' romantic feeling that isn't too forced. Nothing about Hollywood glam is unforced or natural.
Every look and photograph is an overemphasis on romance and vogue, in a "I couldn't care less" kind of way.

 We decided to shoot at City Hall in Hartford, Connecticut because of it retro grand architecture.
The marble spiral staircases and its grand atrium make it feel like the perfect backdrop for an old Hollywood style bash. 
The gold elevators and revolving doors were perfect nooks for romantic, dramatic photos. 

We wouldn't have been able to do any of this without the help of so many great people. 
Lauren and her mom Melanie at Julie Allen Bridals, in quaint Newtown, Connecticut were on point in pulling us a lace Marisa Bridal dress
with just the right amount of vintage pearls, crystals, and layers of lace with a champagne underlay.


Jade, from Jade Silvestri Hair & Makeup Co. brought our vision home with styling and make-up that looked ultra dramatic.
Another thank you to Gilded Shadows for delivering a vintage birdcage veil for the perfect finishing touch. 

Kelly, from Dainty Fields, whose Connecticut family farm is the foundation for her whimsical floral creations went the extra mile in creating a red ranunculus bouquet, with pops of berries and chocolate cosmos.

Of course the replica 1924 Mercedes was a show stopper and brought the whole thing home.
Thank you to Emily who was a trooper and drove this open air car from Waterbury to Hartford, in the rain, with no working heat!
She has a great assortment of cars for anyone who wants to add a little something extra to their wedding photos. You can contact her at:

emilyac48@gmail.com

Last but not least thank you to our models, Skyla & Brooks who were so willing and ready for anything we threw at them!

Priam Vineyard

WEDDING

10.21.17


We've been excited to shoot this wedding since we first met with Alex and Chris to discuss their wedding over drinks and apps. 
They are a fun loving, down to earth couple that you can immediately feel comfortable talking with. 
Their wedding was a picture perfect fall day at gorgeous Priam Vineyard located in Colchester, Connecticut. 

Alex and her crew of 8 chilled out at Alex's house sporting their white embroidered shirts while Chris and his party of 11 rigged up a bottle of 
Fireball with a gopro camera at a nearby hotel. 
This crew came to party and weren't waiting till the reception to enjoy the festivities. 


Before the ceremony, Alex and Chris made sure to spend a few moments away from the craziness while each opened gifts from the other.
Alex opened Chris's gift, a pearl necklace and journal, that brought tears to her eyes.
Chris kicked the guys out before opening his gifts, a pair of flips, a t-shirt, some cologne, and a VERY sweet watch. 

Alex and Chris did a first look before the ceremony which I'm soooo thankful for.
We were able to get a lot of amazing images of the two of them before the sun went down. 
Not to mention some really fun and laid back bridal party pics.

Ahh the ceremony! I will say one of the most touching and entertaining ceremonies I've witnessed in a long time.
Their personal vows were heartfelt and hysterical all at the same time. 

The rest of the night was a whirlwind of dancing thanks to the ETA Band who kept the guests moving.
Chris even serenaded his new wife with his rendition of Adam Sandler's, Grow old with me. 

We wish this fun loving couple all the best! We had a blast celebrating your love along with all your friends and family. 
Oh, and if you see a fly, don't kill it. Pretty sure its a relative of Alex's!

// Ellen & Cale //
The Golden Lamb
Brooklyn, Connecticut

WEDDING
10.15.17


Ellen & Cale tied the knot in my hometown of Brooklyn, Connecticut. The Golden Lamb Buttery, a classic New England venue was this couple's perfect venue for their wedding day.
Sweeping views of lush fields, mature trees, and old stone walls line the long road leading to the rustic red barn where they celebrated with family & friends.

In the week leading up to the wedding Ellen quickly became a bonafide meteorologist as she was checking the forecast every hour on the hour.  Never fear though because
they couldn't have asked for a better day. The trees were nearing peak color and the air was warm to start, but as the sun went down the fall chill set in. 

The clouds hung around up until they finished their vows.
Then like a scene out of a romantic comedy the sun shined through the clouds onto the bride & groom as they were pronounced husband and wife and shared their first kiss.
It truly felt like a sign from the above that these two are meant to be!

Ellen loves horses...no LOVES horses! She was ecstatic when the horses came over to greet them during their photos(there may have been a carrot or two involved). Even Nestle, one of the farm's donkeys came over to say hello.
The night featured hay rides, an intimate and absolutely delicious dinner in the many rustic dining rooms of the Golden Lamb, and an absolutely amazing candy & all things sweets bar.

It was a fun loving crowd for sure. The dance floor was never empty as everyone danced the night away. What do you expect they were all hopped up on sugar! Even Cale got out on the floor to show off a few moves!

We were so honored to be a part of this couples big day. We wish them all the best!

WEDDING

Written By: Steffanie

What a fantastic day! Fantastic venue! Fantastic couple! Fantastic wedding!
I can't say enough good things about all of the parties involved in this couple's day. 
The weather turned out amazing with some pops of sun that just made for some really cool images. 

They had the cutest "ring security" detail, and their little flower girl counterparts. 

Chrissi really made her details stand out with all of the buffalo plaid accents, pinecones, red lanterns.  She didn't just choose these items but actually made it all herself!
Signs, place cards, invitations, menus, ornament favors, personalized doggie treats and the list goes on. 
According to Chrissi's two sisters she pretty much excels at everything she does and Gene should pretty much accept the fact
that she will out do him at everything including the more manlier tasks of mowing the lawn, throwing a baseball, etc.

Not only did we get to work at Allen Hill one of our favorite places.  Matthew's Catering provided an amazing meal for all of the guests to enjoy and great service to go along with it. 
To top it off DJ Marty provided the entertainment and made sure everyone had a fantastic time dancing the night away.

Unfortunately not every wedding day is without it's share of sadness. Gene's dad was not able to be present because of illness. 
Although he was missed we know he was there in spirit and we're so glad to hear that he's doing so much better now!

We had such a great time working with this couple & their crew.  Wishing them nothing but the absolute best in the future!

// Michelle & Jason //
Private Horse Farm
WEDDING
9.30.17

You don't need to look for a venue when your backyard is a picturesque horse farm that features wide open fields.
Of course this isn't your typical backyard wedding. The attention to detail was second to none with various stations set up that not only looked great but featured some yummy treats.
I hit up the candy bar more than once myself.

The barn on site made for amazing shots, especially the hayloft.
Don't let her small frame fool you, Michelle is a country girl!
Seriously, how many brides do you know who would be willing to climb a ladder in a wedding dress and hike up hay bails just for a picture? 
Special thanks to Laura for being such a trooper helping Michelle up the ladder and for being my lighting assistant!

I was also introduced to her horse, who is like a big 4 legged sidekick for Michelle. She has had the horse for nearly 15 years and I can say he seemed pretty protective of her, and loved to give her kisses. 
Their other smaller 4 legged pup kids also got involved giving kisses to Michelle for a few pictures. 

Matthews catering did a bang up job keeping everybody organized, and the food was stellar!!
I would highly recommend them and look forward to working with them again!

Jason set the tone for the reception hand picking a group of talented musicians who played a rocking set list that kept the party jumping most of the night. 
Jason even got on stage himself and played the drums for a song. 
One of the most touching moments of the day was when Michelle's late father's best friends got up and sang while Michelle and her brother shared a dance together. 

We had a blast not only with Michelle & Jason,  but everyone involved was so kind. 
Wish we could do it all over again!

Nikki & Kyle are a fun loving, kind of crazy couple. They are our sort of people. They tied the knot on a breezy cool day at Wrights Mill Farm located a town over from us in Canterbury, Connecticut. 
The day featured a lot of 'that's what she said' jokes and Kyle discovering for the first time he had hands that he had no idea what to do with in photos.  We coached him through and we think he will be fine with his newly discovered appendages. 
They both rocked a pair of cool Converse's that matched their fun loving vibe. Kyle went with the Johnny Cash, black on black vibe and Nikki went with a strapless ball gown.
Nikki shed her first tears when she got a first look at her flowers, a vibrant fall bouquet.
This crew came to dance and Mark, Wrights in house DJ kept the party going and even got the staff involved with a little lesson on how to do 'the wobble.'
