Spotlight on CT’s Newest Wedding & Event Venue – 19Main – New Milford, CT. by Dave Noonan

I recently had the pleasure of photographing an editorial shoot to spotlight Connecticut’s newest wedding and event venue, 19Main, in historic downtown New Milford on the green.   Perched on the corner of picturesque Main & Bank Street on the green, sits 19Main, a former bank restored to all of it’s glory to now celebrate weddings and events. The building was originally built in 1903 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  It features 3 original bank vaults, each one unique and amazing on their own but (get this!) the vault in the bridal suite was converted into Read More

saybrook point in wedding with carla ten eyck


When I walked into the suite where Courtney was getting ready I just about fell over. She was absolutely GORGEOUS and her gown just about knocked me off my feet! Way to go Amsale! It was the best way to start their day and I was in it and beyond excited to spend the day with Courtney and Pete and their families! Despite the rain which seemed to follow us from their engagement session (no matter! we still got amazing photos!) we had a wonderful time showcasing the weather and how in love both Courtney and Pete are Read More

bohemian wedding in new york with carla ten eyck


When a photographer asks you to be their photographer for their wedding… well. It’s a huge honor. But when it’s also someone who you have known for years, someone who you have grown with as a person and as a photographer with, that’s got even more of a heart achy-GAH-I am so flattered and excited and shit I hope you like what I do vibe to it! Like, I just want you to love how I see your day, how I see your closest friends and family and the love of your life. I hope you like how Read More

Lord Thompson Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

There were so many things that I loved about Kirsten + Thomas’ wedding at The Lord Thompson Manor this summer. So many!! First off, and most importantly, I just adore Kirsten and Thomas and how easy going and light they are! Nothing seemed to stress them out, not during our engagement session, or during our pre-planning meetings and come the day of the wedding with all of the moving parts that a wedding day has in it… nothing fazed them! And why would it? When you have the beehive of efficiency that is the staff at the Manor, nothing Read More

Ridgefield’s Lounsbury House Wedding of Andres and Paige

 Andres and Paige could not have asked for a more beautiful mid-September day to get hitched. With Ridgfield’s recently redone Lounsbury House playing host, these two crazy kids said I do under a brilliantly blue sky with their families and a hundred or so of their closest friends looking on. Simple was the name of the game. These two were all about the party and party they did. 
I just couldn’t pass up the chance to make this image in the bridal suite before Paige walked down the isle. The light was ridiculous and she looked stunning. A winning combo for Read More

Sperry Tented Private CT Estate Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

A tented wedding at someone’s home is always one of my favorite locations for a wedding. It’s like a bit of a blank canvas, with a tent (and a Sperry tent at that! My favorite!) you can create something that is truly a reflection of the couple and their taste, mixed in with the personal, with it being at a family home and all. I love it! Seeing the magic that Sarah True and her team at True Event put together on this blustery and quite rainy day was spectacular to watch! Everything went off without a hitch, and we Read More

Bushnell Memorial Hartford Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

This year has been the year of just, soul-mate clients! And I am not talking about for each other, because, like, DUH if you’re not..! Then we have bigger issues, am I right? I am talking about my clients being my soul-clients. And not all of them are, which is, (in the real world anyway) the norm, am I right? But there is something magical about this year’s lineup… something really deep and real, and I am so happy about it!
Enter Laura and Rob. My first clue that they were something special should have been the fact that Laura Read More

Dani & Eric’s Gallaher Mansion Wedding – by Dave Noonan

Eric and Dani celebrated their wedding day at Gallaher Mansion at Cranbury Park recently with their wonderful family and friends.  The day was perfect and the energy and mood was awesome too.  The groom is an art director so he actually designed the custom signs throughout the venue and all of the invitations and paper.  At the end of the reception we were graced with a little bit of rain that allowed for one of my signature style atmospheric portraits.  Like I’ve said a million times; if it rains on your wedding day, embrace it and have fun!  You will Read More

Elizabeth & Megan’s Gallaher Mansion at Cranberry Park Wedding by Dave Noonan

Who says you can’t have an amazing DIY wedding on a budget?  Elizabeth and Megan sure debunked that myth, that’s for sure.  With friends from all over the country pitching in to decorate, helping with planning, and setting up everything themselves at the venue, that is how it’s done!  Complete with handpicked Connecticut wildflowers, a taco bar, lots of love from family and friends, and natural chemistry from this amazing couple, this wedding was smashing and heartfelt.  When I have couples like Elizabeth and Megan, my job becomes so much easier as you can truly see with their strong connection Read More
