And just like that, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! As we enjoy a fresh blanket of snow, I thought it would be a perfect time to share Rachael and Andrew’s classically beautiful wedding at the Branford House Mansion. A little over a week ago, we ended our season in the best possible way. I connected with Rachael and Andrew from the first time we chatted on the phone. I loved their laid back approach to their day, starting with them getting ready at her parents home and carriage house and ending with a beautiful party at one of our favorite venues, the Branford House Mansion. For them it was all about celebrating with their family and friends. And what an amazing celebration it was! Rachael looked absolutely regal (which is perfect, because she’s a big fan of the queen!). Guests commented that she looked like she walked right off the set of the Crown. And I couldn’t pass up the opportunity of doing some classic bridal portraits of her. I was in heaven. It’s always so fun when our couples trust us and indulge me when I get excited about something. I am so in love with the results! Their whole day was a perfect reflection of this sweet couple. And we were so thrilled to be there to capture it for them.

Last weekend we got to see Katherine & Matthew again and celebrate their beautiful wedding day! We met them last year for their engagement session and a great time getting to know them. They are so sweet and fun. And I knew Katherine would blow me away with her dress choice, and she didn’t disappoint! (Another gorgeous dress! I feel like our brides are killing it this year!!) Their family and friends are so much fun, and the day was absolutely beautiful. From the sweetest first look to the crazy dance floor, it was a dream, thanks in large part to her wedding coordinator Lindsey Larsen-Kelsey. Katherine was in awe seeing her vision come to life. We were so happy to be a part of their perfect day.

Last weekend was pretty magical. Nicole and Eric are a stunning couple. They are incredibly sweet and thoughtful. The setting was gorgeous and Nicole’s Pronovias dress from Everthine Bridal was AMAZING! But what made the day even more special for us was that we shot Eric’s sister’s wedding almost exactly a year before! Emily and Ra got married at Saltwater Farm and we loved being a part of their day, and it was such an honor to be a part of Nicole and Eric’s, too!  

Nicole and Eric went to the same preschool in Connecticut but didn’t actually meet until after they had both headed to California to follow their dreams. Talk about a meet cute! Eric is a writer and Nicole is in the fashion industry and their day was not only beautiful but full of sweet touches. Their friend officiated their ceremony with their very own love story, which he had written for them as a surprise. It was perfect. Nicole and Eric used their grandparent’s gold bands as their own, and Nicole redesigned her grandmother’s dress to be used as her second dress for late-night dancing. And speaking of dancing, their dance floor was outside under the stars. How cool is that? And the food from Carbone’s Catering was so delicious. It was pretty amazing from start to finish and we were thrilled to be a part of it!
