CORK FACTORY HOTEL WEDDING: SUNNY + JILL

Are you ready for a cultural EXPLOSION?! Jill and Sunny infused themselves and their cultures into every little detail of the day. Jill’s Jewish heritage and Sunny’s Indian heritage could be spotted in all elements. Their chuppah was decorated with long strips of delicate saree fabric and impeccable florals. The hexagon marble tile “place cards” were tied with a saree ribbon and doubled as favors. Hexagons could also be found on their invitation suite, cake topper, and table numbers. The rich colors of the wedding party attire paired perfectly with the pops of pinks, blush, and white florals. But details aside, my favorite part of this wedding was the happy energy and incredible love shared between this sweet couple and their family and friends! When Chris & I left at the end of the night, our hearts were overflowing with complete JOY and EXCITEMENT!!!

Obsessed with these His & Her vow books!

Sunny, describe Jill in 5 words:

"Intelligent, Confident, Selective, Supportive, Dedicated (and a diet coke addict)."

Who says you can’t wear flats on your wedding day?!!

What is a favorite memory from when you first started dating?

"Sunny and I studied abroad in London together our junior year of college. One of the trips we took was to Paris for a weekend. We stayed in a little hole-in-the-wall hotel and, right nearby, there was a bakery that had the best croissants ever. We went there every day to have a croissant for breakfast and it was just a wonderful trip!"

Splints & Daisies outdid themselves with this bouquet!

Jill, describe Sunny in 5 words:

"Wickedly smart, Hilarious, Hard working, Devoted, Kindhearted"

Most emotional moment of the ceremony for me? When I found out that Jill’s grandfather used to work in this very same factory!

CONGRATS Sunny & Jill!!! Love this moment!!

The prettiest cake table!

And of course, I have to end with a few FUNbooth photos!! Congrats Sunny & Jill! We love you guys!

THE BARNS AT WESLEYAN HILLS WEDDING: CHRIS + MEG

Say it with me: Miracles do happen! What started out as resignation to a day full of gloomy rain, turned into joy and happiness as the clouds parted and gave Chris and Meg full sun while the forecast called for torrential downpours!

The day began in the absolutely charming Connecticut River Valley Inn, where Meg and Chris each got ready in the company of their family. Later, the Barns at Wesleyan Hills gave us the perfect background of green grass and willow trees to highlight their rustic, natural wedding! Slate blue and muted greenery along with white accent flowers could be found everywhere from the invitations, their attire, the ceremony arch, and the barn itself! 

Guests enjoyed lawn games, specialty cocktails, and even a Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream bar! Chris and Meg just radiate a faithful love. I don't know if it's their 10 years together or their genuine joy, but when you look at them you just know they'll love each other forever! 💕 

Chris, describe Meg in 5 words:

"Excited, Reliable, Caring, Brilliant, Ambitious"

Is this not the sweetest First Look?!?!

Meg, describe Chris in 5 words:

"Goofy, Humble, Caring, Dedicated, Amazing"

I know I'm biased, but red-headed flower girls are THE CUTEST!!! 

I think this is my new favorite photo!!! 

A sunset photo is a wedding day essential!! 

Farm tables were decorated with garlands of greenery and white blooms, and birch tree ladders were hanging high, adorned with small mason jars of white flowers.

What are you most excited about for your wedding day?

"Walking into the reception and getting to see the space filled with all of our close friends and family!"

SAINT JOSEPH'S UNIVERSITY ENGAGEMENT, PHILADELPHIA: ERIC + JACLYN

It's sessions like these that make me want a re-do at my college experience! Eric and Jaclyn met in 2009 while attending Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, PA. They were in similar friend groups and enjoyed hanging out on weekends. They spent time running, biking, and exploring the city together, but didn't go on their first official date until 2013! Thankfully, all it took was one date and the rest was history! How romantic it must have been to fall in love on this BEAUTIFUL campus. The stone walls, the arched passageways, the ivy vines, and the feel of history all around - just magical! Congratulations Jaclyn and Eric! You two are literally sunshine and happiness in human form. We love you and can't wait for your Ryland Inn wedding next year!!! <3

I think I'll have dreams about this ivy-laden pathway! 

Obsessed with these garage doors! The perfect backdrop!!

Let the countdown begin!

VINEYARDS AT AQUEBOGUE WEDDING: BIAGIO + DANIELLE (C&CO: KERI)

- - - Guest post by our team photographer Keri - - -

High School sweethearts, Danielle and Biagio were married on a perfect summer day at the Vineyards of Aquebogue on the North Fork of Long Island. Danielle and Biagio are basically the nicest people you will ever meet and their wedding day reflected their easy going personalities and effortless beauty. The day began at a house in the Hamptons right on the water with the girls hanging out, getting ready, and having fun before the big ceremony. After a First Look in the vineyards, we explored the grounds of the venue on a cute little golf cart, letting us get to all of the picturesque locations The Vineyards has to offer. After an intimate vow renewal ceremony (Danielle and Biagio were legally married in a church a few days before) it was party time! The covered porch off the ballroom was the most beautiful cocktail hour location and then it was time to dance the night away. Congrats Danielle & Biagio and thank you for choosing us to photograph your special day!

Squad goals!! 

Such a sweet first look with Dad!

Danielle, what was your first impression of Biagio?

"That he was so stinking cute! He is literally the definition of tall, dark, and handsome!
I loved that he always tried to make me laugh."

The Vineyards at Aquebogue is the perfect venue for a summer wedding! Look how cute Danielle was sneaking up on Biagio for their First Look! 

Love this ceremony space!!

Biagio, what was your first impression of Danielle?

"That she was complexly adorable. It was back in high school, and she was very shy. I remember being in chemistry class with her and she would barely look at me because she was so shy. As we spent a little more time together she broke out of her shell and opened up to me which is when I fell in love with her. I was hooked on her smile."

What moment are you most excited for?

"Our first dance. I just can't wait to be wrapped up in that moment dancing with my life partner."

SHOREHAVEN GOLF CLUB WEDDING: NED + MEGAN

Where do I even start?! I have so many favorite memories from this day...the moment Meg's bouquet arrived and it brought people to tears (go Flowers by Justine!), those moments outside the "church with the blue doors," Meg's sister Kelly's HILARIOUS toast, and of course - ending the night with a limbo battle on the dance floor! We're still on an emotional high! 

Meg & Ned chose a GORGEOUS color palette filled with blush, gold, white, navy, and gray. The bridesmaids all looked incredible in their floor-length blush Joanna August gowns. The reception space was brought to life with flower garlands on the fireplaces, a mix of high & low floral arrangements on the tables, a variety of candles to add a touch of romance, and the perfect gold accents. Every single detail was perfect and dreamy!!! Meg and Ned, your beauty and kindness RADIATES! You've surrounded yourselves with the most amazing people and it was incredible to watch them shower you with the love you so deserve! <3

The most hilarious champagne pop! The cork flew over the balcony and landed on someone's table! 

Ned, describe Meg in 5 words:

"Compassionate, Perfect, Goofy, Beautiful, Stylish"

What are you most excited about for your wedding day?

"The First Look!!!" - both of them

Sometimes it's the tiniest moments that are most beautiful!

How did you meet?

"We met in the 5th grade!!! Ned was this cute little chubby boy with frosted tips (he claims it was Sun In). We had a week-long stint as boyfriend and girlfriend and designated "Hero" by Enrique Iglesias as our song. Needless to say we didn't last at 11 years old but stayed friends throughout middle school and high school." - Meg

Meg, describe Ned in 5 words:

"Patient, Kind, Handsome, Creative, Funny, Hard-working"

Even with a First Look, this is still the most emotional moment of the day! <3

The Shorehaven Golf Club in Norwalk, CT is the perfect place for a wedding! Just beautiful!

The sweetest first dance!

Guys, I did the LIMBO!! Chris *claims* I went too fast for him to be able to focus the camera in time, so he's fired lol. But he did capture the aftermath and it makes my heart SOOO happy! <3

Congratulations Meg and Ned! We couldn't be happier for you two!!!
