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 […]
The day was cool and crisp and the fall foliage was at peak color. Family and friends gathered together to celebrate Chelsea and Peter’s Wedding at The Waterview. It was an honor for me to photograph their special day. They will create a fantastic life together. This was a brilliantly fun and elegant affair, as is the norm for a wedding at The Waterview. The details reflected the autumn colors with hints of Halloween everywhere giving it the feel of an old fashioned masquerade party. The Waterview has two wonderful settings for outdoor wedding ceremonies. Set on Lake Zoar in Monroe, CT, the grounds are well manicured with patios and well landscaped gardens. A wonderful setting for the photography. Here are some favorite photos from the day to share with you. Congratulations Chelsea and Peter! Best wishes to you both. This wedding at The Waterview was my last wedding of 2014. What a wonderful way to finish the season. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Please leave a comment so I know you were here. 🙂 Vendor Highlights: Dress: www.dessy.com; Tuxes: Mens Warehouse; Flowers: Main Street Florist & Gifts, Ridgefield, CT; Hair: Pure Platinum Hair Salon in Oxford, CT; Nails: […]
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 […]
Just catching up on my blog, I am a little behind. So, starting with this lovely July wedding…. I first met Lily at her place of work, as her boss employed me to create head shots on site for the staff. Lily mentioned that she was looking for a wedding photographer so I gave her my card. Subsequently, she did hire me, and when I finally met with both Lily and Joe for their engagement session, I instantly knew this was a divine match! They were made for each other. Have you ever met a couple while in their presence you could just feel the love between them? Well, there it was! So, on July 20, Lily and Joe promised their lives to each other at the beautiful Storrs Congregational Church on the UCONN Campus. It was during that brutal heat wave we had – but Joe and Lily looked cool and collected all day long! Happy to be together and surrounded by their amazing families. The reception was at Lily’s parents house near by, a beautiful spot in the woods with garden, pool, barn and a big tent in case of rain. Well, they had everything that day – […]
What a wonderful day for Rachel and Mario. The weather was perfect all day, a cool rainy morning which cleared up just in time for the ceremony on the beautiful lawn of the Guilford Yacht Club. Here is a peek at some moments from their day. Stay tuned for more later….and please leave some blog love before you go!
I promised that I would show you more wedding albums I designed this year… so on this last day of 2012, here is another sampling from one of my favorites. This wedding took place at the Alumni Center on the campus of the University of Connecticut in July. I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a elegant, intimate space for a wedding. There ceremony took place outdoors in the Courtyard patio area and the reception inside the pretty hall with a beautiful stairway and lots of windows. Graduates of UConn, Heather and Eric had a splendid day and created many of the wedding details themselves. Their fun-loving, warm and unique personalities were evident and were reflected in their choices of decor and reception details right down to the “donuts to go” bags that made it fun and comfortable for all their guests. Albums are a big part of my wedding business, it is the first family heirloom and will be a treasured keepsake to share with family and friends. The digital world of photography can be dangerous as a digital file can be lost or corrupted easily, and who knows what kinds of technology we will have in […]
I had the honor of photographing Anna & Nayan’s wedding recently at one of my favorite venues, The Publick House in Sturbridge, MA. It was a perfect day! Congratulations to this wonderful couple. They planned it all themselves with some help from some wonderful wedding vendors! Take a look… Hair and makeup by Tiffany Leo of Tiffany’s Hair Studio in Sturbridge, MA. She does great work for brides who like the natural look. The beautiful fall flower bouquets and totally inspired flower purses for the bridesmaids were created by Helena Willis of Perfect Princess Events in Vernon, CT. Anna all ready to go in a dress by Oleg Cassini. ‘First look’ in the tight corners of the publick House. Nayan is very tall and the ceilings are very low! On the porch of the Publick House. A friend of Anna makes chapstick and they were the vehicle for the place cards on the reception table. Anyone want to share the creators name? This was cool. And the Publick Houses’ beautiful garden gazebo for the ceremony. The reception was held in the magnificent Canopy Tent next to the Garden Gazebo and Cathy O’Brien did an amazing job with catering and […]

I had the honor of photographing the Wedding of Lauren and Anthony at the Waterview in Monroe, CT. It was a lovely ceremony which was held inside due to the wet weather. The ceremony room and reception tables were beautifully decorated with flowers by Elizabeth of Blush Floral Design. I loved this special moment between Lauren and her mother just before the ceremony. Lauren wore an amazing dress which looked comfortable and gorgeous! …..and Tony looked great as well. After the ceremony and formal photos, Lauren returned wearing these shoes and a cute short dress for the party! Anthony changed his shoes as well! Congratulations to Lauren and Tony! AND a thank you to Jean Molodetz for her help as second photographer. Your images speak volumes, and I look forward to working together again soon.

I had the honor of photographing the wedding of Melanie and Jeff on Sunday. It took place at the beautiful Amarante’s Seacliff in New Haven, CT. Melanie looked fabulous in a gown by Casablanca from Fairy Tales Formal in Glastonbury. The cake was by Creative Cakes by Donna. The grooms mother, Beth Weller and friend, Janet Sanders provided the floral centerpieces and the beautiful sunflower bouquets! Here are a few of my favorite images from the day! The last image of the couples first dance was taken by the amazing, Jean Moledetz, who was my second photographer for the day!
