This beautiful couple was referred to me by my friends over at After Hours DJ's, their lovely wedding was at The Mansion at Bald Hill in Woodstock, CT. It was my first time there and I loved it. It is a beautiful venue with a pretty garden and ceremony site. Casey proposed to Tessa at Disney, as she is a huge Disney Fan. My favorite part of the day was her sisters toast. She changed the lyrics to Beauty and the Beast's Be Our Guest to things about Tessa & Casey. It was adorable! Hope you feel the day from these photos. Thanks for stopping in and checking them out.

Wes & Nicole's Romantic Wedding at The Riverhouse, Haddam CT

Beautiful Bride Nicole and her handsome husband Wesley planned a romantic wedding at The Riverhouse in Haddam, CT in late October. Nicole's dress was a two piece she bought at Bliss Bridal, it was so nice that she was able to pull a layer off and completely change her style for her reception. Nicole is also a hairdresser so she was able to change her hair too. Nicole and Wes looked like they stepped right out of a Disney Fairytale. Just perfect and their hearts match the outside just as a beautiful. The wedding went off with out a hitch and you can see all the love below.

International Wedding in Brazil It's never too late to post a wedding on my blog. Sorry it only took me a year and a few month's. Last year in July I photographed Julia and Sean's Wedding in Brazil. It was in Gavea a town located in Rio de Janeiro. A lot of people ask me how did I get a job photographing a wedding in Brazil. It's pretty simple Julia contacted me to photograph her engagement shoot. She had found my information through a search for local photographers. When I spoke with her she said she only needed a photographer for her engagement shoot since she was getting married in Brazil. She is from Brazil but lives here in United States. I said I will go to Brazil, lets meet and talk about it and the rest is history. 

My experience in Brazil was amazing! I loved it there. It was right before the Olympics so, I saw a lot of the preparations that were underway. There were so many things to do and see. I would suggest going there if are a traveler. Anyway, below are some photos from the wedding.

Sara & Ryan's Engagement Session at Gouveia Vineyards How perfect was this day and how much do you love Sara's dresses. Sara does wedding hair and makeup so of course I was flattered when she choose me to be her photographer. Anytime another wedding vendor hires me I am flattered. I know they have so many choices and lucky me, Sarah is stunning and has great style. Check out her instagram. Her hand is sarajuliannabeauty. She is very talented. Cant't wait for her wedding day next June!!
