Griswold Point Tented Wedding in Old Lyme | Connecticut Wedding Photographers

Luke and I met the summer before our junior year of college at the Connecticut Fire Academy where we became certified interior firefighters after many years with our local town departments. After many ice cream dates and wake boarding trips we decided to make long distance work through college, then moved across the country to Arizona together to start our careers.

Now in Virginia, we admittedly enjoy our time together the most when we’re hiking, hunting, and playing with our Labrador, Sophie. Luke proposed at my family's home in Weekapaug, RI with my family and our dog present to celebrate our excitement together. I love that Luke can make me laugh no matter my mood and our similar devotion to our families and the outdoors.

When we were planning our wedding back in Connecticut, we wanted to make our special day feel like it involved all of the things we hold closest to our hearts, namely home. Our venue, caterer, florist and of course photographer were all friends or family that we felt tied to as we became immersed in planning this special event.

Connecticut Wedding Photographers | Wedding at The Publick House

Julie and Jerry's wedding this past Friday at The Publick House was filled with love, laughter, and a crazy downpour during the bridal party formals. If you haven't been to The Publick House lately, I suggest making a trip up to Sturbridge, MA this summer and checking out their pastry shoppe and restaurant. It is a beautiful and quaint historic inn with a ton of charm, making the perfect backdrop for beautiful wedding photos.

The bride got ready in the Chamberlain House, where we were greeted by a vaulted ceiling complete with full chandelier. Her traveling makeup artist, Katie from KiSSandMaKeUp in Connecticut drove to Sturbridge, as well. Julie's first look with her dad was beyond sweet, and I was waiting for tears to fall during her and Jerry's first touch just outside of the barn. 

First touch is for those couples who have extra time built into their timeline for a quick moment together before the ceremony, but who do not want to actually see each other beforehand. These two held hands around one of the barn doors, where they got to share their nervousness and excitement before walking down the aisle.

After saying their, "I Do's" and beginning group photos there was a little sprinkle of rain. Not a moment later it was a FULL DOWNPOUR, sending everyone running back to the tent. We captured a few portraits of Julie and Jerry around the venue before heading in to their tented reception. 

I could not be happier for these two, and send my best wishes for a long and happy marriage together! May you always be surrounded by loving friends/family and remember to smile through the rain.
