There were so many things I loved about Bill and Jess’s wedding! The bride and groom’s families were so warm and welcoming. Joel and I felt at home right away. It was a gorgeous, windy October day, which made Jess’s custom veil (with purple calla lilies accents!) do amazing things.
I’ve shot a few weddings in Connecticut in the past month, and each time, the leaves were just not quite as vibrant with autumnal colors as I would have hoped from New England. They seemed to be changing late this year, which was great for Bill and Jess… I kept my fingers crossed, hoping that it wouldn’t rain so we could take lots of photos outside.
Bill and Jess planned a full two hours for photos, which means both David from Fairy Tale Studio and I had a lot of time to do really creative things, but neither of us were anticipating a leaf fight… (Love it!)
We got so lucky during the ceremony, when the church just filled with gorgeous light during a family blessing, and then again when there was an ice cream truck parked outside immediately after mass.
They were serenaded by Kermit the Frog (with a little help from the maid of honor) for their first dance, and there *may* have been a second “Thriller” dance lead by yours truly, which Jess specifically requested after reading the entry below. This is going to become a thing now, I think. It is, isn’t it?
Anyway, I had two weddings back to back this weekend, which I almost never, ever do. I couldn’t have pulled it off without the help of my kickass second shooter (and husband) Joel, who so often doesn’t get enough credit. This weekend he drove us back late, charged up all the batteries and re-packed all the gear so I could shoot another wedding on Sunday. (More on that later!) Thank you, honey.
Okay, enough chatter from me, check out the photos! Congratulations you guys! Have fun in Mexico!
