We photographed Meghan and Glen’s engagement session this past fall during the height of the bright fall colors at Wickham Park in Manchester, CT. This was a beautiful place to capture these images and as you can tell this was a perfect backdrop for Meg and Glen! We are so excited for their early June wedding that is right around the corner at The Society Room in Hartford!
We had so much fun going all over the place for Heather and Mike’s engagement session. We started off at our warehouse studio in downtown New Haven, CT and then headed over to Gouveia Vineyards in Wallingford, CT for some amazing scenery. I’ve always wanted to go to the Big E and I mentioned it to Heather and Mike and they were down for a road trip. We are so excited for their up coming wedding this Friday, November 26th!
On a beautiful Sunday in early September, Susan and Jo Ann were married! (and legally thanks to the state of Connecticut!) Their ceremony was held outside on the Mystic Seaport with breath taking views of the seaport. Both of Susan and Jo Ann’s families traveled to New England to join in their celebration of love. Their daughter Izzy was also a big part of their ceremony as well as part of the whole wedding planning process (she told me her favorite part was the cake tasting). We had so much fun getting to know them at their engagement session a few months back and could not be happier that they choose us to document their day!
You might remember Katie and Andy from their engagement session post on our blog a few months back. Their wedding came on a beautiful Friday in August. Katie’s father drove her to the ceremony at St. Paul’s church in Glastonbury, CT in his prized antique Ford Truck. They are the total outdoors type so they decided to have their reception at beautiful Wickham Park in Manchester, CT which has gorgeous views on downtown Hartford. To keep to their interests they had a barbecue of sliders and potato salad for dinner catered by Plan B. Their wedding went off as perfect as the sunset did that day.
After Crista and Neil’s Hindu ceremony they also wanted to represent Crista’s religion and have a Christian ceremony on the beach followed by a big reception at Coconut Bay resort in St. Lucia. Michele and her team from Awesome Caribbean Weddings put everything together flawlessly. Our friends Dave and Arif from Fairytale Studio were also there doing video. Make sure to check out all of their videos from this incredible trip. He really brought a lot of these images to life.
Crista and Neil’s traditional Hindu Ceremony continued onto take place at their house in the southern part of beautiful St. Lucia. Hindu weddings are supposed to take place outside, on the earth, under a canopy known as a Mandap which Neil and Crista had custom built for them at their house. They followed all of the traditions of a Hindu ceremony. They started with the Baraat where the grooms party arrives in a procession and greeted by the brides family. They continued onto their 3 hour wedding ceremony which was very colorful. The ceremony was followed by an Indian dance by the grooms cousin Monica.
This wedding was such an amazing experience for us. From traveling to another country, to meeting amazing people and getting to photographing the wedding between two genuinely kind awesome people. Neil and Crista we can’t thank you enough for choosing us to document your wedding and your whole family for their warm inviting hospitality.
Next up on the blog is Neil and Crista’s Christian Ceremony on the beautiful beach of St. Lucia!
