Wickham Park Wedding CT: Andrea & Jim

A Wickham Park Wedding

I had the honor of photographing Andrea and Jim’s Wickham Park Wedding at the Log Cabin in September.  It was a bright sunny day with big puffy clouds so they could not have asked for weather.  Joined by their family and friends, their vows were exchanged high on a hill overlooking the spectacular view of downtown Hartford.

Great reasons to choose a Wickham Park Wedding.

The Log Cabin at Wickham Park is one of my favorite places at the park to photograph a wedding.  This location has a spectacular view of the city and sunsets.  There is a resident Moosehead over the stone fireplace in the cabin for those who care!  The white tent attached to the Log Cabin helps with larger events, rain, or hot days so this is a definite added advantage.  The Guests and newly weds are able to enjoy the gardens for lovely photo opportunities or simply the ability to relax outside on the benches.  On top of all this, the formal flower garden and outdoor ceremony patio (yes with a spectacular view) is a wonderful place for ceremonies.

Andrea and Jim planned a day that was totally reflective of their interests and personalities resulting in a great time for everyone.  Here are some photos from the day.  We started photographing Andrea getting ready at the Charles Cheney Inn.

Andrea’s dress and shoes, including her red petticoat, were fun and dynamic. Just like Andrea!

Found light in the pretty hallways of the Charles Cheney Inn in Manchester, CT was great for a bridal portrait, as were the grounds outside the Inn.

I love capturing unexpected or  impromptu moments!  As a result, I got this one of Andrea and her mom grabbing a selfie.

They built this Photobooth from scratch out of various camera parts and a monitor. Brilliant!  Everyone enjoyed it.
