Allyson and Craig had the dream fall day for a wedding. Over the years fall has gain tremendous popularity for weddings. Let’s face it, when fall decides to shine, she out does any other time of year. But with all its beauty, it can be chilly and unpredictable. Ally and Craig were prepared for any weather that came their way, but they got perfection. It was a warm day complete with an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour on the porch. The Hop Meadow Country Club has beautiful views of the Farmington Valley, a huge porch without door bar and fire pit for guests to enjoy with taking in all of the scenery.
Although we live not far from the venue, we have never been on the course. Craig and Ally are members, so they were able to take us up in golf carts to the area they like best. The views were spectacular and the light was amazing. We could have spent hours up there finding endless locations for photos. But there was a party down below that was too good to miss.
Guests were entertained by a band and the couple was toasted with some of the best speeches I have heard in all our years photographing weddings. It was the perfect balance of roast to toast that kept the entire room entertained. The wedding was a day full of personal touches endless love, and lots of laughter. We feel so honored to have been a part of this gorgeous wedding.
