Ideas for Your Connecticut Wedding

Congratulations to those couples who are newly engaged and planning your 2014-15 weddings!  I have been meeting with many couples over the last month discussing their ideas about venues and details as they plan their weddings.  Showing my albums and seeing the wheels turn as they look at my photographs,  I decided it would be cool to share these ideas that my own clients created with everyone who drops by my blog as it could be helpful to others.

In this post I will concentrate on a favorite of mine – ‘Black and White’ Weddings.  Elegant, clean and appropriate for any time of the year.  Thank you to my wonderful couple, Nicole and Michael for creating a beautiful day.

One of my favorite venues for photographing – the grounds of the Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington, CT.   Below you will see we photographed the formal portraits there.  Black & White just pops in that setting and the garden colors were perfect with Mom’s beautiful dress.  Be aware that there are fees and restrictions, but worth every penny, and please know that the fees help keep this very special place in tip top shape – so do your part and plan ahead with your photographer’s help.  Here is the link to the policies.   The reception continued at the wonderful West Hartford Golf Club.   Also a delightful place to photograph and hold your wedding reception.  The Black and White theme was played out beautifully from decor to the cake!
