Check out Mark. Come on. YIKES!

Before I sign off the blog for the Thanksgiving Holiday until next week (our studio is closed for the rest of the week until Monday November 30th) I wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday from my family to yours!
Our last wedding in November was at the Mystic Marriott with our clients Shaun and Melissa- it was a blustery, chilly autumn day in New England but we managed to have a wonderful day!

marissa and michael wedding at the society room hartford ct

In October I was able to come full circle with the Ford Family- clients of mine that have felt more like family from the day I met them a few years ago when I photographed Alicia and Matt’s wedding at St. Clement’s Castle in 2007. It was there that I met Marissa, Alicia’s younger sister and her beau for the wedding, Michael Pratt. To say we all fell in love with this guy for Marissa was the understatement of the YEAR! So of course their wedding at The Society Room in Hartford was nothing but beautiful, vintage inspired fun!!
