Kayla & Chris | Outdoorsy Engagement Session in Connecticut

Have we mentioned how excited we are for spring?! This super-sweet outdoor engagement session was hiking mixed with playful fun and I'm so excited to be their wedding photographer! Kayla and Chris's wedding is just around the corner, at one of our favorite venues - The Lace Factory, and we can't wait to see which photographs they choose for their custom guest book!

The Waterview | Connecticut Wedding Photographers

Sarah & Nick's wedding was one of those days where everything just goes perfectly. They chose to do a "first touch" before the wedding ceremony and exchanged handwritten letters with one another, in lieu of a first look. The grounds at The Waterview were a gorgeous backdrop for their ceremony and their ballroom provided a mix of elegance and whimsy through the floral design. It was easy to find little touches of their personalities and their relationship together, but my favorite has to be the LEGO bride and groom in front of their cake! We ended the night with a few night photos outside near the fountain before saying goodnight. XOXO, Sarah & Nick! We are so happy for you both and hope you are able to reminisce over your day and remember all of the moments that made it truly yours!

Lighthouse Point Park Wedding | Connecticut Wedding Photographers

We're so in love with this beautiful wedding. SO. IN. LOVE. Erin & Ryan began their day with a first look at the carousel in Lighthouse Point Park, followed by group photos before the ceremony. Brides...this is the best way possible to spend the day with your guests and attend your own cocktail hour! Personally, I love the private moments and the authentic & emotional reactions of our couples. With just the two of them, they're able to relax and really enjoy the moment that they first see each other. The nervousness turns into excitement as soon as they see each other, and they're able to spend more time together on their wedding day. What's not to love about that?! There was no shortage of laughter during the ceremony - one of the things we love most about candid wedding photos. When you look back on your wedding photos, as you will countless times throughout your life, we want you to remember exactly how you felt at that moment. The moment you say, "I Do" is a mixture of love, excitement, wonder...happiness.

When you take a look at these photographs and see this venue all decked out, you'll probably wonder about how it all came together. Who created the floral design? Who set up the tables and coordinated the day? Who entertained the guests with music throughout the night, and WHERE did that Italian ice come from?!

Let me introduce Lisa DiBenedetto, the owner of Nightingale Events. We've worked with Lisa many times for weddings across New England that she and her team have coordinated.

A note from Lisa:
"Erin & Ryan's wedding was one for the books!  I waited all year for it and so happy that my team and I could take part. From the first time we spoke I immediately felt a connection with them and all their ideas were music to my ears! Getting married at Lighthouse Point is already a fun place to be.  Sabrina, the manager there, is a dream to work with at events. She's straightforward and happy to answer questions and have your team help you if you're in a pinch. Erin wanted certain vendors for her big day to make it a one-of-a-kind experience for her guests and we were happy to make recommendations!  The steel drum band - Caribbean Vibe Steel Drum band had all the guests swaying along during cocktail hour when they weren't enjoying "Chloe" the VW Van Photo Booth!  Fitzgerald catering is one of our favorites to work with because their salmon ceviche is mouth-watering! [Side note - their buffalo chicken bites were crazy good, too!] During the reception guests enjoyed Italian ice from Chet's Italian Ice and AMAZING cupcakes from J Cakes!  The décor was one of a kind including a record player card box made by the father of the bride, concert tickets as escort cards and album covers on each table from the concerts Ryan & Erin have enjoyed together through their relationship. Lastly, Erin was the most calm bride I have ever met!  She was relaxed and enjoyed time with friends and family, even with rain in the forecast. The smile on her face as she walked down the aisle was evident of pure happiness and love. XOXO, Lisa"
