Libby & Paul said their, "I Do's" on Saturday at the Webb Barn in Wethersfield Connecticut with just the perfect bit of sun peeking out from the clouds. Libby and her bridesmaids got ready in Old Wethersfield at Larissa Lake & Co. and I was so excited to finally see Larissa's new space, as we watched it being built on a daily basis going to/from the studio in Wethersfield. Lots of natural light from the windows, mirrors and little details everywhere. Local brides, take note - this is a beautiful spot for getting ready on your wedding day!
From there, the ladies traveled to the house where Libby grew up, to finish getting ready before the ceremony. Her mom and her bridesmaids helped her get into her gown, shoes, and jewelry. How classic and elegant is the pearl necklace she wore? I found out that day that those pearls belong to her grandmother, which makes the sentiment just as beautiful as the necklace itself.
I've photographed many weddings at the Webb Barn, and each one is special to me because it's where I was married almost 8 years ago (this month!!) I remember stepping out of the barn and seeing all of our guests and just feeling so much love. Pretty easy to imagine this is how Libby was feeling as her father walked her down the aisle. That moment of anticipation before the bride and groom have seen each other, the nervousness and excitement, those happy tears. Libby shed a few happy tears, and it was clear from Paul's face during the ceremony how head-over-heels in love he is with her.
These two were all smiles through the rest of the wedding, and came RUNNING when the guests saw a double rainbow outside on the lawn. Everyone always tells us that it's good luck to have rain on your wedding day, but I think having a rainbow must be exponentially better. Their wedding reception inside the barn was filled with great music and dancing, and we were able to end the evening with a night photo outside - my favorite! One last photo, ending on a perfect note.
