Sarah and Andy–SNEAK PEEK

sneak peek - 17

Someone was looking down from the heavens on all the brides and grooms who were married this past weekend. Saturday and Sunday were two amazing, sunny days sandwiched between endless rain. Sarah and Andy were particularly lucky since their venue was not quite conducive to rain. We did two weddings back to back last weekend which were both in Stonington, CT. And ironically they were both in converted airplane hangars.

Eolia Mansion at Harkness Park

This wedding was very special for Jake and me. For one, as I have mentioned in the past, Jake and I were married at this venue. This was the first wedding I have worked at the mansion since joining Jake a couple years ago. It was nice to reminisce and see how another bride took her vision and brought the mansion to life. Sarah and Andrew did a great job of adding personal touches throughout the mansion. The flowers, photos, cute little birds everywhere, and even a time capsule were nice pieces of the day.

Photos: Harkness Park and Enders Island
Reception: At Home in the Backyard!

Elaine and Ryan were officially our most laid back couple to date. We started with photos at Harkness park in Waterford, CT. Ryan and Elaine drove together, just the two of them, to meet us. From there they took us on a mini CT shoreline tour. Photos at Harkness are always beautiful. It is a great backdrop for the couple’s photos and family photos. It is a location with a little bit of everything, some greenery and a little sand between the toes. From there we all piled in our cars and headed to Montville for their ceremony. Once these two were married, their bridal party (and the newest family member, their puppy) joined us at Enders Island for some photos oceanside. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the location, it is the very tip of Mason’s Island in Mystic, CT where the monastery resides. From there we headed just a few blocks to Elaine and Ryan’s home. It is here where they held their reception.
