I shot Sadie and Brandon's wedding at the end of last year at the Crystal Lake Golf Club and it was an amazing day! The reason this wedding is "a very special" wedding is because most of these folks are basically family to me. I ADORE every bride and groom I get to work with for sure but Sadie and Brandon are part of this AMAZING group of people that have accepted me and I wouldn't know them at all if it weren't for this one wonderful woman. If you're reading this and you know me, you know who she is. I make a rare appearance in this post dancing with the most amazing woman I've ever known! Sadie was kind enough to let me bring my kids, there's a great pic of my oldest dancing with a great friend of hers :) (yeah, my son, not so much, weddings aren't for 9yr old boys :)! There's an image of a couple that's now engaged and I THINK I'll get to shoot their wedding! There's Sadie's granddad dancing with her brother, OMG! So many people and families that I adore! I hope to grow old with all these people around me, I feel very blessed to know them all. Thanks Sadie and Brandon, your wedding felt like home. Sarah ;) (PS Hi Kevin!)
Gina and Michael were married early this summer in downtown New Haven, CT. We couldn't have asked for better weather for their big day! One of the highlights of the day was having (Gina is a teacher) a collection of students from Gina's class attending the ceremony. It was great to see the look in the kids' eyes as they saw their teacher all beautified for her wedding! We ended the evening at Aramante's Sea Cliff where they danced and partied into the night. It really was a great day and I'm happy to have had the honor of shooting their wedding! Congratulations Gina and Micheal!
Diana and Paul were married at the Golden Lamb Buttery in Brooklyn, CT. These two, OMG! First, they took control of the buttery with their vision! The second image in the post is Diana's use of 1001 paper swans for a wedding blessing! What a great day, Diane and Paul are crazy for each other! Best friends getting married! It makes my job easier for sure, but there were so many amazing moments. Look through the images for the moment Paul fell off the stone wall. I don't think the laughter stopped from that moment on!!! There's also a great moment of mid-western tradition that I'd never seen before. It involves stomping produce in a trough. Wow! Good times!
Thanks Diana and Paul for a wonderful day!
