Seaside Wedding in Westbrook, CT

I had the honor of photographing Tracey and Chris’s wedding in Westbrook, CT.  It was a perfect June day to be on the Long Island Sound.  The Elks Lodge in Westbrook was a wonderful place for a small and intimate wedding of family and friends.  Tracey and Chris were supported by their two amazing sons, close family and wonderful friends.  Congratulations to this couple!  Here are a few photos from the day.

Wedding at The Waterview. Chelsea & Peter

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: […]

Pomfret School Chapel Wedding and Ellington Ridge Country Club Reception: Erin and Rob

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 […]

Storrs CT Wedding and Garden Reception: Lily & Joe

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 – […]

A Lovely Garden Wedding at Home

I love the small intimate feel of a garden wedding at home.  It is a personal reflection of the couple, their families and their new life that lies ahead.  This past weekend I had the honor to be the photographer at Beckie and Lester’s wedding.   What a lovely day they planned with the help of family and friends.  They even had home brewed beers with the coolest custom labels!  After all the rain, it turned out to be a ‘picture perfect’ day. Here are a few images to give you an idea of how wonderful a day it was!  Congratulations to this awesome couple and their families.      

Wedding Albums Tell the Story.

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 […]

Anna & Nayan’s Publick House Wedding

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 […]
