westport ct summer wedding

Arleigh Cole is a brilliant hair and makeup artist that I have had the opportunity to work with at several weddings, so when she called to tell me she was engaged and wanted me to photograph her wedding I was overjoyed! My heart sunk when she requested dates that were already booked, but fortunately she was able to make a date work that fit into our schedule. This wedding was thrilling for me for another reason, it was to be my first same sex wedding, since the laws allowing gay marriage passed in CT. Their wedding was so spirited, and so full of love, there was electricity in the air, you could feel that everyone felt how special this day was down to their core. While Stephanie and Arleigh handcrafted all of their decor, a very special team worked to bring their wedding together. 
 
Their wedding is featured in print in the Summer 2015 issue of The Connecticut Bride, http://www.theconnecticutbride.com/The-Connecticut-Bride/Spring-Summer-2015/Real-Wedding-Arleigh-Cole-and-Stephanie-Doyle/
