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!
As a wedding photographer, I try not to pay too much attention to the weather. It’s one of those things that is out of our control, and you don’t need perfect weather to have a perfect wedding. That being said, the weather for Kori & Brian’s Inn at Mystic wedding seemed to have been sent straight from heaven. (And maybe it was!) And it just seem to add to the joy of the day for this sweet, fun couple.
Kori and her girls got ready at the Haley mansion. She loved watching the hustle and bustle of the wedding day set up and was thrilled seeing all of the details come to life. Kori and Brian brought together their vision of a modern twilight garden theme beautifully.
The day was full of sweet surprises. Their ceremony was performed by her cousin (who also introduced Kori and Brian) and ended with them under an umbrella being showered with a mix of poprocks for the rough times, sprinkles for the sweet times, and rice for longevity and everlasting love. There was also a flash mob entrance by the bride and groom, and a sparkler sendoff with the wedding party. But my absolute favorite surprise was the tepee! When Kori was a little girl, she and her stepfather Bubba used to go and get wood. It was something special that they did together. One day Bubba took some extra pieces of wood and built her a teepee. Of course, she loved it. So as a surprise on her wedding day, Bubba built Kori a special teepee on the grounds of the Inn at Mystic. It was such a sweet touch that meant the world to her.
Kori and Brian, we loved being a part of your special day. Thanks so much for choosing us. Cheers to a happy life together!

Last weekend, Bryanna and Russell got married on the sweeping lawn of Latitude 41 overlooking the water at the Mystic Seaport. It was a beautiful summer day, made even more beautiful by this sweet couple declaring their commitment to each other in a very emotional ceremony. Their were lots of tears, but also lots of smiles and laughter on their big day. For us, it was like a reunion! It was so much fun to see Heather & Mike and Kara & Matt again, as well as Bryanna’s family (her father owned the dance floor at Heather and Mike’s wedding!). It’s been such an honor to celebrate so many happy occasions with this great group of friends.
