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!

Winter Wedding at The Society Room | Connecticut Wedding Photographers

The couple’s story: Joe and Jackie met online. Joe asked Jackie out to happy hour at a little restaurant called Salute in downtown Hartford. Happy hour turned into closing down the bars on a Wednesday night, to then finding out that Jackie's car was locked in a parking garage at 2 AM. Joe, being the gentleman that he is, offered to give Jackie a ride home in the opposite direction of where he lived. The next morning, Joe picked Jackie up before work to bring her downtown to get her car. They immediately starting planning their second date, and from there were inseparable. Love at first sight was not something either of them believed in until they met each other. Jackie and Joe both knew they were meant for each other from the very start. Jackie even texted her best friend (and Maid of Honor) the very next day saying "I really think I'm going to end up marrying this guy."

Fast forward to the proposal, Joe and I had a trip planned to Maine last summer to visit his family for the week of July 4th. On our second day there Joe and I walked out to the end of the dock at his parent's lake house and he proposed. I was in so much shock, and when I turned around everyone was standing there watching us and he even flew my parents up there to witness the whole thing. It ended up being much more than just the 4th of July trip I was expecting.
