Marsha and Don are married!

One of the reasons I love my job is that I meet the most wonderful people that I would never have met unless I was their photographer.  I love the stories of my clients and Marsha and Don have a lovely story.  Don spent many years devoted to taking care of his very ill parents, he has never been married before.  Marsha lost here first husband to a serious illness and they both decided to join a bereavement group.  They fell in love and got married last week at the Inn at Woodstock Hill.  It did rain that day, however it did not during the ceremony.   The Inn did a great job and I recommend it to any bride looking for a beautiful spot to have a ceremony and reception, gorgeous grounds for the portraits, plus a beautiful room for the night. Meet Marsha and Don, to very special people.  I wish them all the best in their lives together.

Bride and Groom Portraits

Meet my new friends, Gretchen and Armond. They were married last September, and came to me for a formal portrait in their wedding clothes.  What an amazing and beautiful couple!  I have to share these with you. I just loved the Scottish attire! They look like a royal couple! Gretchen mentioned that is was great to do it after the wedding – I photographed them in my studio where they were cool and comfortable.  Think about this option if you would like a formal bridal or bride and groom portrait.  It was great fun, too!

If you have not heard of, or been to this gorgeous gem of a venue, you must check it out!  It is perfect for a small, intimate, yet elegant wedding ceremony and party.  It is also a B&B!

Today Alexandria and Jason were married in the beautiful historic First Baptist Church in Storrs, Connecticut.  This was the snowy wedding day that they had hoped for!  All went well besides the weather – they both worked hard to pull off this intimate ceremony and dinner for close family and friends. They are both UConn students and Jason has planned a surprise honeymoon in snowy Vermont!  I can’t wait to find out what wonderful destination he chose. Here are a few images of the day.

St. Clement’s Castle is one of my favorite places for weddings!

St. Clement’s Castle right here in Connecticut is one of my favorite places to photograph weddings!  The setting is spectacular and the inside and outside of the building is perfect for all kinds of formal and informal images.  Besides the views and architecture, the staff there is so helpful and accommodating that it is a pleasure to work there. My brides and grooms have all had wonderful things to say about their experience at St. Clement’s as well.  I highly suggest this wedding venue if you can book it.

Elegant Weddings in Connecticut

I noticed that brides are still loving the elegant, slightly deco style weddings in older halls like the Bond Ballroom in Hartford. What are some of your dream venues? Is it the Bond, the beach or somewhere else? Please share.
