Connecticut’s Wedding Venue -The Waterview, is Perfect for Intimate Moments

Here is a look at a few details and quiet moments from one of my favorite weddings of last season.  If you are looking for a beautiful venue, professional and helpful staff, check out the Waterview in Monroe, Connecticut.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.  There was an abundance of natural light everywhere which I love!  There are many large windows which made a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony, the bride and her details. Once it cooled down outdoors, the garden area offered me some beautiful reflected light for more portraits.

Wedding at Amarante’s Seacliff New Haven

Congratulations to Petra-Ann and Derrick who were married in a beautiful ceremony surrounded by friends and family – many who came from Jamaica! I had a great time photographing these gorgeous people.  As usual, Amarante’s Seacliff did a great job!   Here are a few of my favorite moments from the day.   First, a quiet few moments with mom and dad. Bubbles kept the kids busy while we waited for everyone to arrive! And at last, even after dark we had portraits to do down by the water at Amarantes…. the skyline and the evening was beautiful!  

Priya & Andy’s Wedding at the Riverhouse!

Priya and Andy were married on Saturday at The Riverhouse.  It was a morning ceremony and the weather was perfect.  The Riverhouse’s beautiful setting – a modern and unique patio with a beautiful garden was the ideal backdrop!  Congratulations Priya and Andy –  it was an honor to photograph your wedding.  Here are a few favorites from the day.   Very unique gift for the guests…a little live plant beautifully packaged!   A quiet moment before the reception..   Our beautiful bride!   And the beautiful gown by Maggie Sottero!

Waterview Wedding in Connecticut!

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.

Wedding at Amarante’s Seacliff

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!

A bride and her bouquet…

I created this portrait of Regan while she was taking a few moments to relax before she and her new husband Jason made their entrance into the reception for their first dance together as husband and wife.  They were married at The Riverview, in Simsbury, CT.

Rosalie and Aaron married on New Years Eve!

I had the privilege to photograph the wedding of Rosalie and Aaron a few days ago on New Years Eve.  They were married in a small ceremony of family and friends at a beautiful little church in Brooklyn, CT.  These two very beautiful and special people are serving our country in Afghanistan and Iraq.  After a honeymoon this week, they will both get ready to go back into active duty later this month.  Thank you Rosalie and Aaron, I was honored to share your day!  Here are some highlights –

Custom Designed Wedding Albums

I thought I would begin a blog series of wedding album designs.  This way you can see what I do for my clients after the wedding. All my albums designs are custom, made specifically to match the couples style and the wedding day feel.  No two albums are ever the same!  The style I chose here was simple and traditional. Meet Amy and John.  They were married in June 2010 and they planned an intimate garden wedding.  Check back soon as I will be showing you more designs from this years weddings.   Thank you for stopping by the blog!
