Last weekend, Lisa and Robert got married on a blustery Fall afternoon. Once again, the weather was playing tricks. What was supposed to be passing showers turned into a full afternoon of downpours! But thankfully Lisa and Robert didn’t allow that to stop them from enjoying their wedding day. It was absolutely beautiful, and to say that their friends and family were fun is an understatement! After the ceremony, the rain slowed down enough for us to get some outdoor portraits, and we even had some gorgeous golden light.

The day started with the girls getting ready at the bridal suite at The Meadows, and the boys at the hotel. Lisa was a little nervous (not to be marrying Robert, but just because weddings can sometimes be a little nerve-wracking!), and it was so nice to see how her bridesmaids took care of her, distracting her and making her laugh. John was hanging out with the guys at the hotel and he sent me a text saying, “The guys are fun!” That pretty much sums up this group of friends. Lisa and Robert’s ceremony was held on the covered patio, and although it was still raining we could see blue sky breaking through and the light was beautiful. I was so happy for this sweet couple, who met in high school!

Bride & Groom standing together with vines behind them at golden hour

 

It doesn’t get much better than a wedding at Saltwater Farm Vineyard in the Fall. And we were so happy to be a part of Beth & Sean’s!

Last weekend, Beth and Sean got married at Saint Patrick’s Church in Mystic and then headed to Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington for an amazing night of celebration with their families and friends. Saltwater Farm Vineyard is one of our favorite venues. It’s so beautiful, especially in the Fall, when the vines are full. (And although it was officially Fall that weekend, it certainly didn’t feel like it with unseasonably warm temperatures!)  It was a gorgeous evening and the perfect location for them to begin their life together as Mr and Mrs!

We got to know Beth and Sean when we shot their engagement session last year, and quickly found out that we have a  lot in common. They are huge Boston Red Sox fans (their mutual love of the Red Sox is actually what brought them together when they were working on the same team at their company) and Beth is also a graduate of Fitch High School! They are laid back and didn’t want to worry about the details of the day, so they hired some super talented vendors and trusted them with their vision. As Beth said, “You do you!” Daly from Daly Planning and the crew at Coastal Gourmet worked their magic, and Yumiko and the ladies at Hana Floral outdid themselves with the florals. Absolutely gorgeous! It all came together to give Beth and Sean a beautiful Fall vineyard wedding.

Bride and Groom hugging on rocks on beach in the fog

 

Last weekend, Ainsley & Paul got married in a beautiful ceremony at Saint Patrick’s church in Mystic and headed to the Meadows in Stonington for a night of celebration with their family and friends. We loved getting to know Ainsley and Paul at their engagement session at Bluff Point last year, and knew their wedding day would be something special. Their day could not have been more lovely. Ainsley looked so beautiful, and Paul couldn’t help but smile when he looked at her. The weather started out sunny and bright, but as we headed back to the Meadows, the fog rolled in. I love fog! (What a rollercoaster we have been on with the weather lately!) My favorite part of the day was spending time with Ainsley and Paul at the beach, doing their portraits in the fog. There’s something about fog that is so mysterious an romantic. It was so much fun (especially since they had scheduled in plenty of time for us to do them).  We were in photographer’s heaven! We had a great time meeting their family and friends, who obviously love this couple very much. There were sweet (and funny) toasts and some epic dance floor moves (including a very interesting interpretation of Fireball). All in all, a beautiful day celebrating Ainsley & Paul!

We always love working with some of our favorite vendors, including Stephanie (and friends) from Rae of Lyte Beauty, Gourmet Galley and Stylish Blooms. Everyone did a great job making sure Ainsley & Paul had the day that they envisioned!
