Greenwich Country Club Wedding

Alex and Drew's wedding was nothing short of perfection. When I met with Alex and her mom to speak of the wedding plans, I was caught up in their excitement of transforming their country club into an indoor garden. With Katherine of KDJ Botanica the magic was sure to happen. A 26 person wedding party, two incredibly happy families and a tender and dynamic connection between Alex and Drew set the stage for a moving and beautiful day. Thank you Alex and Drew, what an honor and inspiration it was to document your wedding day! I loved creating their wedding story album for them which they chose in a grey leather binding with gold gilding from Leather Craftsmen and is pictured below.

I always love these soft moments with the bride and her mother.

Once she was ready all the bridesmaids burst into the door to see Alex transformed into a gorgeous bride, what a fun moment!

Next Alex's father came in and did his best to hold back the tears.

I always love to capture close portraits of the bride with her best friends during the preparations, everyone is fresh and in great spirits!

I'm always searching for candid connections and I loved this sweet moment.

I caught some portraits while Alex was sitting in her suite waiting for the car to arrive.

I love this quiet moment before Alex exits the elevator on the way to the first look!

A family friend let us use their estate close by the church for their first look and wedding party photos.
The moment where they see each other is always so wonderful!
I always encourage my brides to wear long veils, they make for beautiful compositions and when there is a slight breeze we get special "photo gifts" such as this!
Can we have a swing at every wedding?
I love big wedding parties!
My favorite moment in every wedding is when the groom sees his bride for the first time, whether they have a first look or not, there is always so much excitement and love!
The moments just after the ceremony when family and friends congratulate the bride and groom are some of my favorite!
And they sped away in their Triumph TR6!
Katherine of KD&J Botanica in Westport created a magical setting for the wedding reception. I love her escort card display and the variety and uniqueness of each table bouquet.
Formally introduced as husband and wife!
The speeches were so moving and what a fun surprise when the bride's cousins brought out a photo of them at the beach when they were toddlers!
There wasn't a lot of sitting at this wedding!
I love big group portraits! I always ask my couples if there are special groups they want photographed casually during the reception. Usually these are college groups, and we have gotten some very interesting ones such as one groom's boy scout troop and a father of the bride's high school band members!
They danced the night away....
I looooove sparkler exits, each one is so unique and fun!
