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 […]
I had the honor of photographing this Mystic Seaport Wedding of Krisann & Tim. What an awesome couple! Krisann just happens to work at Mystic Seaport so she knew how wonderful it would be. Plus she is so creative and talented that she made her own veil and arranged all the flowers bouquets and arrangements! The ceremony took place in the Greenmanville Church and their reception was at Latitude 41 the restaurant right next door to the Seaport. It was a lovely day for a wedding however very hot and humid, so we stuck close to the air-conditioned Latitude 41 and took photos around that area of the Seaport. Here are some photos from the day.
I had the honor of photographing the marriage of Candy and Bob this past July – with family and close friends standing by as they joined their lives together. The ceremony took place in a tiny church in Hebron, CT which is located southeast of Hartford in the beautiful rolling hills and farmlands of this cool little state. There were big beautiful bouquets of summer flowers; pretty pots with ribbons lining the pews and lovely bouquets and boutonniers. After the ceremony & photos in the garden, we proceeded to downtown Hartford for the party at the fantastic restaurant ‘Firebox‘ that specializes in ‘Farm to Table’ foods. (A must visit if you have not already experienced this place.) It was a fine mix of sophistication and down to earth rustic which made a unique, fun and beautiful wedding day. Congratulations to this beautiful couple! Take a peek at what the day was like and please leave your comments below! Thank you for visiting my blog.

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.
Shoes can make a difference on how you feel especially on your wedding day. If your feet hurt it is no fun. Here are some samples that have been the favorites of my brides for different reasons. First are a pair of soft and pretty shoes that are elegant, pretty and comfortable. They looked great with the brides Silk Flower bouquet and silk dress. These were worn on a hot July day and were simple in style but the shiny stones shown bright when the bride changed into an elegant party dress for the first dance. The guys shoes can be less interesting unless comfort is the main concern. These guys decided to wear ‘Dress Sneakers’. Nice and comfortable for a garden wedding on a hot summer day. In a church? Naah! I love the simple design and texture of these shoes. Now, if you want to make a statement…try something bold. Sandals with a flair are great for tall brides so they don’t tower over their groom. Some brides choose to change shoes – one for the ceremony and the other for dancing. Shoes you can kick off in an instant if you feel like it and match the […]
