Funko Pop and Graffiti Walls - YES! | Connecticut Wedding Photographers

Paige and Billy’s wedding was filled with bright colors and so many fun details!! Every wedding at The Society Room is so unique - and the room itself is pretty amazing! A giant staircase leading to a grand balcony that overlooks the dance floor below, huge draped windows all along the front of the dance floor, and a gilded ceiling that truly looks like something right out of a European museum. We couldn’t be more in love with this spot! Paige and Billy’s purple and orange colors were perfect in this setting and all of their custom details gave the wedding a fun vibe. I mean, custom Converse for the bride and groom?! A Pabst sign over the bar - the couple’s name! My favorite was the cake topper made with Funko Pop lookalikes for Billy, Paige, and their three pets. Thank you to David Apuzzo for hanging with me and photographing these guys! Congratulations, again, Paige & Billy! I’m so happy for you two and honored that you chose us to photograph your wedding!

Eolia Mansion Proposal Session | Connecticut Wedding Photographers

Ahhhhhh, I am so seriously excited for these two! When Guarav first contacted me, I had no idea that this session would end like it did. I don’t want to ruin the surprise too much…but THEY GOT ENGAGED DURING THE SESSION! It was incredibly sweet and perfect with that feeling where you just can’t wait to tell the world (which I did, as soon as I saw a colleague photographing a wedding at the park!!!) These moments are so incredibly precious and I hope to photograph many more proposals. Congratulations, you two - I hope you remember that day forever!

The Lace Factory Wedding | Connecticut Wedding Photographers

Connecticut Wedding Photographers at The Lace Factory for Evan & JoAnna's wedding:

"Evan and I first met online on OkCupid where I messaged him first! Evan almost deleted his account that very day, so it’s very lucky that he waited a few hours!

Our first in person meeting was at Besito in West Hartford, Evan says he knew he was going to marry me when he first saw me. I felt so comfortable and we had an amazing first date together. From then on we became inseparable, we got new jobs, moved in together, and recently moved to a new town all together!

My favorite thing about Evan is his caring personality and how he always knows what to say. Evan’s favorite thing about me is how passionate I am about making the world a better place and how compassionate and kind I am. We’ve traveled to Israel together and we went on our first cruise together last summer. We enjoy cooking together, laying on the sofa and watching Netflix’s and going out with friends and having a fun date night!"

Evan and Joanna's wedding at The Lace Factory this summer was nothing short of beautiful, and we absolutely loved photographing for these two! Our absolute best wishes for a long & happy marriage together! XOXO ~ Kathy

Mystic Aquarium Wedding | Connecticut Wedding Photographers

This wedding at Mystic Aquarium has to be one of my all-time favorites, due to the sheer fun factor of the venue and this particular couple! I mean, for reallllll...a Beluga Whale who splashes the bridal party?! Pretty sure you're going to love their story as much as I do. Huge thanks to my second shooter for the day, Jesse from On Point Images.

How we Met: "We were in geography club together in college and found a common love of Doctor Who and travel. We very quickly bonded and have been best friends ever since!"

The Proposal: "It was a massive surprise! We were on a trip to Disney World and it turns out he was plotting this entire thing for months before hand without me knowing! We were at Magic Kingdom and he pulled us (myself and his two friends WHO WERE ALSO in on it) over to Cinderella's wishing well next to the castle. He gave me a coin and told me to turn around and make a wish. I closed my eyes and threw the coin over my shoulder into the well and when I opened my eyes he was down on one knee! I was BEYOND shocked. I think I just stood there in shock for a few seconds before I said YES!"

Venue: "We choose Mystic Aquarium for the venue because we have a mutual love for the ocean and specifically conservation. Mystic is a conservation driven institution so naturally it was our first choice. We wanted to be able to share with everyone we love the amazing things Mystic Aquarium does!"

Details: "Our THEME if we had to choose was sustainability/ethics. We both have a lot of background in both and for us this being central to our wedding was of the greatest importance. My engagement ring is made of recycled metal and ethically sourced/ fair trade gemstones. Our wedding rings are made of recycled metal and resemble birch bark, a tribute to our favorite country, and where we someday hope to live, Iceland. Our flowers were exclusively things that were grown LOCALLY IN SEASON (not imported from other countries). Our outfits for the wedding were both handcrafted in Vermont by Tara Lynn (Tara Lynn Bridal) made of sustainable hemp, cotton, and silk fabrics. We also made the very deliberate choice of using TOMS shoes for ourselves (and my bridesmaids) because the shoes are ethically produced and for each pair purchased TOMS donates a pair to someone in need of shoes! Of course to explain my shoes (the bees), I have an undying love for bees, I would love to someday have my own hives. They are fantastic little producers and I do everything in my power to teach people what incredible insects they are!"
