Kat and Matt had a gorgeous wedding at Priam Vineyards.  Jake and I had never photographed a wedding at the venue before.  However after spending the afternoon on the grounds, we certainly hope this will not be our last.  The vineyard has done an amazing job of using the land and adding great touches for a tented event.  It is complete with an outdoor fire pit, gazebo, and sitting area for warm summer nights.  The tent is beautifully situated on the grounds, and the owner is a hands on passionate man who loves good wine, good people, and a good party.  We were very excited to have been a part of the day.

The Branford House

Avery Point, Groton, CT

 

Here are a couple photos from last Sunday’s wedding.  It was such an honor to be a part of this day.  It is evident to anyone around these two that they are meant to be with each other.  They couldn’t hide their excitement and joy from the moment their eyes locked at their ceremony to the last minute of their wedding.  We have heard from friends and family that this love for each other looks the same every other day as well.  It was a fun afternoon along the CT coast complete with food trucks and lawn games.  Make sure to check back for more details and photos of this fantastic wedding.

Westport Country Playhouse

 

This past Saturday we headed down to Westport, CT to photograph the first wedding ever held at the Country Playhouse.  It was a beautiful day along the shore and a fun and unique wedding.  This couple met at the playhouse, so it was quite fitting to use the grounds for their wedding.  There were so many fun and personal touches to the day.  Make sure to check back for more soon.  In the meantime, enjoy the preview.  The first couple photos are my favorite since they were capture directly after the ceremony when they thought no one was watching.  It was such a sweet and genuine moment that perfectly conveyed their feelings on this beautiful day.

Norwalk Aquarium, Norwalk, CT

 

Barbara and Tom had a beautiful spring day for a wedding.  This past winter seemed endless, and the last time we saw these two we were walking through deep snow snapping their engagement photos.  Finally the trees were in bloom and the weather warmed for an amazing wedding day.  The aquarium in Norwalk is a fun and different venue.  The building sits right by the water and has a great New England feel.  Inside guests are entertained by the fish, turtles, and sharks in the tanks during cocktail hour and joined by the seals during dinner.  The live entertainment always adds an extra element of fun as well as provides a great topic for conversation.  The guests were delightfully surprised by the aquarium transformation into a wedding venue.

Northwest Park, Windsor, CT

 

We headed out memorial day weekend for our favorite kind of photo shoot, a kid shoot!  We caught up with Colleen and Jason, who are the proud parents of 1 year old Molly.  Jake and I had the privilege of photographing their wedding a couple years ago.  So we were very excited to meet their little girl.  Molly is adorable.  After a little while, she forgot all about being shy with us and started enjoying playing for the camera.  We had a gorgeous day for the park.  We took a tour around to see the animals, play in the grass, and enjoy the playground.  Molly practiced walking and took a turn at feeding the sheep.  It was a fun session with a sweet family.  Molly was a delight to meet and photograph and super cute!  We hope to see everyone again soon.
