Merlinda and Maurice, a country wedding at Wood Acres Farm.

Merlinda and Maurice were married in October of last year.   It was a wonderful, on location wedding in the hills of Western CT at Wood Acres Farm.  The scene was set with the farm nestled into the hills and the hustle and bustle of Merlinda and her bridesmaids and family getting read when I arrived.  The weather cooperated and the sun was warm as they shared their vows on the porch of a cozy little cabin on the property.  The entire day went off without a hitch and the evening wrapped up beautifully with some really fun dancing and partying!  It was great to see these two families and their friends tear it up on this fantastic evening!

 

A little side note: as a photographer, I've had the pleasure of working with so many amazing, talented and dedicated professionals.  Merlinda and I have crossed paths many  times over the past years at various events, be they weddings or style shoots.  I'd be behind the lens and she'd be doing hair and makeup for clients or models.  In the countless times we've worked together, I was always impressed with her work, her level of professionalism and her willingness to go the extra mile to make sure her subject looked just so before getting in front of the camera.  If you're a bride to be, a model looking for a stylist for a shoot or just someone who needs a top notch hair and makeup artist, please don't hesitate to ask me for Merlinda's contact info.  I'd hire her for my own daughter's wedding (God willing that's quite a ways off, but you get the drift ;)

 

Ok!  Enough chatter!  Following are some of the pics from Merlinda and Maurice's big day.  Thanks so much for having me, it was a great time!
