CT Cathedral Wedding: Beth & Alan

There is nothing quite like the feeling I get when I walk into a large cathedral, even in Connecticut.  It could be anywhere in the world and it definitely takes my breath away.  Beth and Alan planned an extraordinary wedding here in CT at the end of September and their ceremony took place in the beautiful Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Downtown Waterbury, CT.  It is an Italian renaissance design after the Basilica of Saint Mary Major in Rome, (cool link, check it out!) is an extraordinary place to be married and I loved photographing it.  While inside, you could pretend you were in Italy for an hour! Now, if you want to get married in a cathedral, you may want to get a dress that fits the church.  Beth wore the perfect dress and ‘cathedral’ veil for this venue!  I just love the long flowy dress and veil.

They planned a joyous day – Alan’s family came all the way from Ireland and the two families met a few days prior to the wedding for the first time!  The reception was held at the Heritage Hotel in Southbury, CT and their Stone Garden was perfect for formal photos which had been planted and decorated for Autumn.  The weather was perfect and everyone had great fun as well!  Here are some highlights of the day.
