the barns at wesleyan hills wedding

Really? Does it get better than break dancing, purple lined wedding dresses and terrarium centerpieces from Datura, A Modern Garden? Yep, yep it does. When you throw in a healthy dose of love, Sandra Costello as a second shooter, and a couple who treats you like you are part of their family. That’s when it gets better, It gets WAAAY better!!!!
We couldn’t have had a better day with Karin and Tony! Sandra and I are so lucky.

Lynn and Gary’s wedding at Eolia Mansion at Harkness State Park in Waterford, CT was nothing short of emotional, heartfelt, super fun and just all around fabulous! Harkness State Park is one of my most favorite places to photograph. The number of different nooks and crannies that you can photograph in are basically endless, (I’m going to go out on a limb here and say:) it is hands-down one of the most magnificent places to have a wedding in all of Connecticut!! (But hey, that’s just my fancy, humble opinion!!!) Alison and I had a fantastic time shooting it!
