Margaret and Nick–Hillstead Museum Wedding

Margaret and Nick
August 8, 2015
Hillstead Museum, Farmington, CT

Jake and I had the pleasure of documenting Margaret and Nick’s wedding a little over a week ago.  This was a particularly fun wedding for Jake to be a part of since Margaret and Jake grew up directly next door to each other!  We were so honored to have been included in this spectacular day.  And the day itself could not have been more perfect.  This gorgeous wedding was on the grounds of the Hillstead Museum.  The Farmington Valley countryside offered an incredible backdrop to the event.  This August day had the perfect weather for the perfect afternoon.

Margaret and Nick were very laid back about everything.  When it came to the wedding planning, they had an idea of what they wanted.  They were looking for a garden wedding with a casual elegance. As for what the actual details were to be to bring that vision to life, they were open to suggestion.  As usual, Talia and team from Sixpence For Your Shoe did an amazing job bringing Margaret and Nick’s wedding dream to reality.  The flowers from Dragonfly Events were gorgeous as usual and all the tiny details of the day were truly beautiful day.

Margaret and Nick were a pleasure for us to photograph.  When I asked Margaret about her thoughts on photos, her only request was to keep it traditional and to take advantage of the museum grounds.  Margaret, Nick, and the whole bridal party were great.  They  allowed us to walk them all around the grounds where there is no shortage of great spots for photos.  From Margaret and Nick to their family and friends, this was a great bunch who made the day so much fun for us to capture.  We had an especially fun time with Nick’s son, Colton.  He is an adorable, outgoing, seven year old who was ready to take on the roll as Jake’s assistant.  He walked all over the vast grounds with Jake having fun with our large camera and documenting the venue and the guests.  He added to our entertainment for the day.

From a lovely cocktail hour in the garden to a beautiful tent beside the museum, guests had a fun afternoon and evening of dancing and drinking.   Ann Howard Catering catered the event while the band, Men In Black kept the guest out of their seats and on the dance floor all night.  Margaret and Nick had a truly memorable wedding that we are very excited to share!
