And now, part two of our favorites, featuring portraits and the party! Another huge thank you to our amazing couples, who trust us with their wedding images. It is such an honor to be there on one of the most important days of your lives!
A couple of weeks ago, we met with Jackie and James for a fun engagement session in Stonington Borough. We lucked out with the weather (again!) and had a great time getting to know this sweet couple as we walked all over town. The Borough is one of our favorite places to shoot, and has added meaning to Jackie and James, who are getting married at Saltwater Farm Vineyard, right down the road, next Fall! After meeting Jackie and James, we’re even more excited for their wedding day!
Last weekend was Katie and Jeffrey’s beautiful Fall wedding at Saltwater Farm Vineyard. The weather was (finally) gorgeous, and we were so happy to see this sweet couple again! We loved getting to know them at their engagement session last Fall. They are so cute together. Katie has the best laugh and Jeffrey obviously makes her very happy. (Plus, Katie was born in England and has the best accent, which immediately makes me want to be her best friend!) I always ask our couple how they met, and I love their story. “We went to the same high school and were friends, not dating. We went to the same college and decided to meet a few times a week for lunch, for a friendly face. Lunches turned into more lunches, which turned into dinners, which turned into dates.” Which turned into these two beautiful people getting married!
Their family and friends were so sweet and the whole day was full of emotion. One of the most rewarding things about being a wedding photographer is being able to capture real moments and the connection between people. Happy tears? There’s a good chance I’m tearing up behind the camera, too. And there was lots of laughter and happy tears on this special day.
Jeffrey and his groomsmen spent the afternoon at the hotel, getting ready and playing poker. The girls relaxed and got ready in the bridal suite at Saltwater Farm. Katie got choked up when she saw Jeffrey and the guys arrive at the vineyard. It was so sweet! And just one small moment on this special day. First looks, a beautiful ceremony, special dances, this wedding was full of amazing moments!
