MaryBeth & Dan 
The North House
Avon, Connecticut
3.17.18


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!

// Alex & Chris //
Priam Vineyard 
Colchester, Connecticut
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!

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!

My first time visiting Elizabeth Park in Hartford, Connecticut and I must say its a great spot! 
What made it even better was exploring the grounds with the fun loving couple, Leanna and Eric.
The large gardens and open wood lines made for the perfect backdrop as we dipped in and out of the sun spots that lined the trails. 
We can't wait to photograph this wedding next year!

// 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.'

WEDDING

9.23.17

Terri & Tim shared their life long vows in front a crowd of friends and family at CT National located in Putnam, Connecticut.
CT National is like a second home to Tim, who is a member of the course and knows the place inside and out. I met Terri & Tim there a few weeks earlier and was given the tour of the grounds and I must admit there is so many great locations for photos that you don't find at many golf course weddings.

The day started with Terri and her ladies packed into the upstairs bridal suite where they enjoyed some drinks. Steffanie and I thought the spot made for some 'interesting' shots (inside joke there. You had to be there.) 
After the ceremony we scooted around in some golf carts and explored the valleys of the course as the sun set. We caught some amazing shots as we chased the sinking sun. 
The reception was  full of laughs, a fair share of tears, and a TON of dancing. 
We have had a lot of wedding food, and I will say that this place was top notch and the staff was a pleasure to work with. 

Thank you so much Terri & Tim for including us on your big day.

The day was relaxed as the girls prepped upstairs and the guys got ready out of sight downstairs. 
We kicked off the festivities with a first look at a scenic field atop a large hill where Sam & Evan shared a quiet moment together. 
Their sweet demeanor and love for each other is clearly seen in photos.
The night was kicked off with a sparkler send in to start the party. 
They also played the 'newlywed game' where they did pretty well.

Had fun exploring New London, a location I've never used before and will surely return to in the future. 
We walked up and down the side streets that border the docks of this secretly hip town.
We were never far from interesting architecture and eye popping wall art. 
Didn't get a chance to try any food but Michael was pointing out all the great food joints. 
New London is close to this couples heart and I feel like you can see that in all these frames.

Chelsea & Cam celebrated their wedding on the shore of Webster lake at Point Breeze.
It seemed like a clear choice because of their connection with the restaurant. 
The girls piled into Cam's parents house while the boys relaxed the day away at a close friends lake house. 
Cam spent most of the morning floating in the lake while Chelsea spent the day getting ready.
Doesn't seem fair really!
The ceremony was sweet as a long time friend officiated the wedding, his first time doing so!
The partying was next level with Cam's red/white/blue suspenders dancing the night away.
We had a great time exploring the docks and chasing the sunset with this fun couple. We wish them a lifetime of happiness!

A Beautiful couple on the cusp of an amazing wedding day in Hawaii! They made sure to include their adorable doggie named Bear and it's pretty obvious that he nearly stole the show.

I just can't help but be in awe of the obvious love shared by this little family in the making and it absolutely shines through in all of the pictures.

written by: Troy Devolve

Erika & Derek expressed their love with close friends and relatives at the beautiful Mansion at Bald Hill, located in Woodstock, Connecticut. 
Rain came down in buckets as Erika and the girls got ready in the bridal suite on the second floor of the old mansion. 
To keep their minds off the rain that just wouldn't end, they played a hysterical game of 'heads up', a charades style phone app.

 

A few doors down in a room of their own the guys relaxed with pizza, beer, and chips(of course!). 
Derek struggled with tying his tie, everyone gave it a try including myself but to no avail.  Derek finally called it quits and went with the pre-done tie included with his suit.
There was a lot of jarring going on back and forth ,but the guys were left in shock when Derek presented them all with custom lux wood watches. Erika also surprised her girls with watches from Kate Spade.

Luckily the rain moved out just in time for the outdoor ceremony to begin.

The ceremony was sweet with personal vows from Erika and Derek, and special readings by their moms.

However I will say MOH Kelly's toast will probably be one of the things everyone most remembers from this wedding.
She gave a sweet toast but shocked everyone when she dropped three custom raps honoring the new Mr. & Mrs. Ponciano. Don't forget to check out the video at the end of the blog!

The evening was capped off with a lot of dancing, lots and lots of dancing.
Thank you Derek & Erika for including us. We had such a great time with your bridal party and your crazy fun family!

Enjoy!

Alyssa & Andrew expressed their love on the hilltop at Allen Hill Farm located in Brooklyn, Connecticut.
The day was enjoyed by a tight knit group of friends who share a love of frisbee.

There were some very emotional moments. Most notably when Alyssa's brother who is serving in the military surprised everyone, including his mother, showing up moments before the ceremony began.
The day just seemed to fly by and was just so easy and relaxed.

DJ Marty & Co. provided the entertainment, great food courtesy of  G Seven Catering, and the evening finished off with a bonfire out by the orchard.  Just gotta love Allen Hill Farm weddings!

Thank you, and best wishes to the new Mr. & Mrs.

Becca & Greg tied the knot at Harbor Lights, a coastal venue with beautiful views of the ocean located in Warwick, Rhode Island.
The day was warm and bright with a strong coastal breeze as a late night storm pushed in.
Greg surprised Becca with red roses and a ring box buried at the bottom of the vase. Greg also managed to sneak a message on the bottom of Becca's shoes.

"I love you so much! Can't wait to see how beautiful you look. See you soon."
 

We started the afternoon off with a first look down on the docks which gave Greg a change to see just how beautiful his bride really was.
When it came time for the ceremony the sun shined high in the sky as Becca was escorted down the aisle by her brother, looking amazing in her lace Maggie Sottero dress.
Her girls wore full length dresses in a muted pallet making the aisle seem more like a high fashion runway! They were all absolutely gorgeous.
The ceremony was very moving and brought many to tears.  The tears didn't last too long though. 

Greg & Becca shared their first kiss as husband and wife and the celebration started right then and there at the other end of the aisle.

We had so much fun working with this crazy bunch who proved they were down to party on the dance floor.

We wish them all the best as they continue on into their new adventures!

We celebrated the union of Emily & Chris at the beautiful Harkness Memorial Park located in Waterford, Connecticut.
The grounds feature scenic views of the ocean, mature trees and various gardens that complement the historic Eolia mansion where guests enjoyed dinner and dancing.
The ceremony was held during golden hour at the ampitheater that over looks the ocean. Emily was escorted from the mansion to the ceremony site via a fabulous 1940 Pontiac driven by her father.
Chris, who has the worlds largest smile was grinning from ear to ear as his soon to be bride was escorted down the aisle.
Emily's mother could be seen shedding tears as the couple exchanged vows and rings.

The most difficult part about shooting at Harkness is deciding which spots you want to focus on. There's so many amazing angles, and countless nooks to shoot in.
We decided on using the front of the mansion with the Pontiac and bridal party which created this dramatic old world looking photo that could easily have been 1947 as it was 2017.

The reception was relaxed as Chris and Emily kicked everything off with a first dance in the tented dance area. Emily's sister Stephanie was a bit choked up getting through her toast and Chris's best man got the crowd laughing with a witty and sweet toast to the couple.
Most couple's feature one cake. Emily & Chris had a whole assortment of cakes that looked like they should be featured in a bridal magazine made by none other than the grooms mother Pam.
If you arrived early enough you could have seen her putting together the finishing touches just before the ceremony.

After Hours DJ Peter got the crowd on the floor with a classic anniversary dance that was finished with special words from the grooms mother on a successful marriage. "The woman's always right."

We want to thank Emily and Chris and everyone involved for all the cooperation and support.
We had an absolute blast with this fun loving couple and wish them all the best!
Enjoy!

Ashley & Matt shared a magical day at the coastal venue, Harbor Lights, located in Warwick, Rhode Island.
They exchanged vows in front of friends and family overlooking the water and docks that surround Harbor Lights.
Ashley & Matt loved the venue for its scenic views, amazing food, and great staff.

The day started at The Radisson Hotel just a few miles down the road where both the girls and boys prepped for the big day.
Ashley and Matt exchanged a token of love when they surprised each other with a card and gift.
Ashley's father also surprised her with a gold bracelet that once belonged to his mother, he fought back tears as he helped put the bracelet on her wrist.

Her father continued to show emotion as he escorted his daughter down the aisle toward her soon to be husband Matt. Ashley looked stunning in her Sophia Tolli fit and flare dress with lace details. She held a beautiful bouquet by Golden Gate Studios that had a nautical blue and white stripe ribbon wrapped around the stems that really looked amazing and suited the theme of the day.
The reception kicked off with a couple of heartfelt toasts by Ashley's sister, who reminisced about Ashley being her real life baby doll. Matt's best man and brother who also shared a few fun and heartfelt stories about growing up with his older brother.

The beautiful cake by Soleil & Sons bakery was cut, and the bouquet tossed.
The night was completed by a lot of dancing, laughs and some more shed tears by Ashley's father and Matt's mother.

 

Thank you to Matt & Ashley for including us in your special day. We had a great time sharing a couple of meals and drinks with you and hearing all about your plans for the big day. We had an even better time seeing the day unfold and sharing in your joy.
All the best to you guys!
Enjoy some highlights.
