Today I am happy to share with you this recent Pomfret School Chapel Wedding at the Pomfret School of eastern Connecticut. Erin and Rob could not have had a more perfect day. It started out a little foggy but, as Erin’s father exclaimed after the ceremony, “The skies cleared as soon as they kissed!” The sun was bright and we had a beautiful, dry September day of celebration.
Erin and Rob are two very special people. I met Erin a few years ago at a chamber of commerce meeting. She took my card then, and now many years later, she called when they decided to marry! I am thrilled that she did, as they planned a really fun and beautiful wedding and I had a chance to get to know them both a little more. One of her relatives had a Stanley Steamer car, so she arrived and departed in this cool old fashioned vehicle. The Pomfret School Chapel is a gorgeous place to be married. In fact, Erin’s parents were married there, too. I think that is pretty special. Erin and Rob included all her nieces and nephews as an integral part of the wedding party which made some wonderful photo opportunities.
This is what I love about photographing weddings. It is a time for families to come together and really appreciate each other and reconnect in special ways, especially with family members that live so far away like this family. Rob’s dad was not able to be there as he is recuperating from an illness, however, the coolest thing was that he was able to see everything on a cell phone! Thank goodness for technology. We even got photos of him, too, via cell phone! I was so moved by the love that these two families showed for each other and I was delighted to be part of their day. Here are some highlights.
Here is a list of the other wonderful vendors who helped make Erin and Rob’s day so special.
