Stunning wedding in Northeast Connecticut

We had the honor this month of photographing a wedding in Pomfret, Connecticut at Tyrone Farm. The weather was rainy on and off for the morning and early afternoon, but when it came time to do the classic “first look” and group photos before the outdoor ceremony, the sky cleared up. During the ceremony there was a few thunder claps but as the groom looked up, his face lovely said, “dad, we know you’re here.” It was an honor to capture the day for the two families as they joined together. And we saw in every photo love and devotion that will carry this couple through their marriage together. Best wishes, Hannah and Jeff!

           

A wedding filled with emotions

We capture smiles, giggles and silly faces all the time in our portrait sessions. But its extra special to spend a wedding day with all these fabulous facial expressions together! From goofy faces at the dress rehearsal, to the excitement of getting ready, and the sweet bride consoling during the father-daughter dance, these two families have such a love filled life ahead of them. In was an honor to be part of the day for a special family and wish them a happy 1st year anniversary!

        

Outdoor country wedding

When we captured this bride and groom back in March for their engagement session we knew they were a relaxed laid back couple. And so their wedding reflected the same easy going vibe! From the simple ceremony background of the gorgeous upstate New York outdoors to the great BBQ dinner and dancing! There were very tender moments captured during the father-daughter dance and then during their first dance as a married couple. And the grooms one request was met with lots of motorcycle photos!

These Love Birds Love to Laugh

After 2 engagement shoots, we knew we would have a blast shooting this wedding. I have never met people who were more happy, goofy, and care-free ALL of the time. It’s wonderful when a wedding has that much joy to share throughout the entire day.

The bride and groom did a lot of work themselves to make sure their space looked picture perfect. One of our favorite touches was their cake topper – a sweet pair of love birds! They even included a photobooth with fun props and encouraged their guests to show their quirky sides, too.

Down the Aisle to a Jewish Persia

We definitely appreciate that our client base in Georgia is growing, and we loved working with this fun couple! The bride’s family is Persian, and the groom’s family is Jewish. It was nice seeing the two cultures blend so seamlessly to make their wedding the best it could be. The Persian side could be seen in the large sofreh at the altar, and also in the honey ceremony. There was a beautiful Jewish chuppah, and of course the groom stomped on the glass at the end of the ceremony. The two wed at the Roswell River Landing with the beautiful Chattahoochee River in the background. There were some comical moments when people floating down the river passed by with their music blaring, but the bride and groom laughed it off. It was a day full of love and laughs.

Kissing under the twinkling chandeliers!

This wonderful couple found us through our list and shows with Perfect Wedding Guide. They had a wonderful destination wedding here in the North Atlanta. We started with a full rehearsal dinner for all their guests and then a beautiful catholic ceremony and a gorgeous reception at John’s Creek Golf Course. The rain let up just enough for us to get some photos outside before the sunset. This bride liked the chandeliers at her reception so we had fun capturing some special moments beneath the twinkling lights!rehearsal dinnerwedding dress and veil hangingbrides shoes

Wonderful memories of one year gone by!

While one of our owners celebrates her fifth wedding anniversary the other celebrates her first anniversary! A year ago we all gathered in Connecticut to celebrate love and laughter! With the wonderful support of one photographer to another, we had great fun dancing, singing, and cake smashing. What a wonderful wedding! Here’s to many more years of love for the newly weds!

What a Way to End the Year!

We had the opportunity to photograph a wedding at the end of the year for one of our friends from church. We always see it as an honor when a friend wants us to be a part of their special day. It was a small ceremony where the attendants were the bride’s sister, and the groom’s sons. The love we witnessed that day was evident everywhere we looked. At least we live here in the south so when we went outside to take pictures, it wasn’t too cold. The bride even had a lovely fur shawl to keep her warm.

Last Minute Bliss

When one of our photographers got married last year, we were asked if we had time to shoot another wedding in the area two days before. So it was a huge week of weddings. Not only did we find out about this wedding last minute, the bride and groom put the whole thing together in a month! When the bride is from another country, and the visa gets accepted, you only have a short amount of time to pull everything together. So even though the bride had only one person come from China, the entire night was full of love and fun.  The bride even changed into a traditional Chinese dress for the reception. And I have to admit, in all the weddings I’ve attended and photographed, this was the first one where I started tearing up during the speeches.

“I do” in pretty pink, black and white!

This wonderful couple had the best smiles around! And they were surrounded by great smiling family and friends. From the fun time of learning roles at the rehearsal, to stealing a private moment together under the trees this day was filled with love. To make the day more unique, the toasts were opened to all their guests. Many excited blessing of joy were bestowed upon the newlyweds!
