Diana and Paul's Golden Lamb Wedding Brooklyn, CT

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!

Stacey and Marcin's St. Clement's Castle wedding!

Stacey and Marcin's wedding was an amazing day of friends, family and a wonderful reception!  The day was an incredible blend of traditional wedding met with family from back in the home of Poland.  The sense of family and tradition was always present but the fun never stopped!  Stacey's goal was a look of old school cinema and we got a portrait of her standing beneath a single light that I'm happy to say, really captures the look!

Things really got going as the night wen't on with a barely PG garter toss but the dancing...!  What a blast!  I was pulled into countless circles and a massive conga line! Stacey and Marcin, I thank you for letting me capture your wedding day!

Ellen and Ben. Wright's Mill Farm Wedding awesomeness!

Ellen and Ben's Wrights Mill Farm wedding!  We started at Alexander's Lake.  The tone was that of quiet anticipation.  Ellen was clearly excited for the day ahead.  When I arrived at the ceremony site, Ben was calmly waiting for things to begin.  The guests had gathered, the forest setting was peaceful, then... the low rumble of a vintage muscle car grew closer and suddenly it came into view with Ellen, her mom, and her maid of honor perched excitedly on the back of this classic rag top!

After her entrance, the day took on a life all its own.  I'm very  happy with the images we made that day!  Especially since finding out, Ben and Ellen worked their wedding budget around hiring me!  I'm truly honored by that sentiment.  But more important, they set aside 1.5hrs for photos.  That gave us the time necessary to create a small catalog of really wonderful images!

Thanks Ellen and Ben!
