This modern Lake of Isles wedding was filled with smiles and love, laughter and hot looks. The bridal party was getting ready at Foxwoods Resort and Casino.  With the help of Naomi’s Salon for Hair and Makeup, the ladies looked amazing.   Katie’s dazzling dress and stunning looks (not to mention those eyes!) made for some amazing bridal portraits and OH those shoes!

Billy and the groomsmen hung out in a separate room, so not to spoil the surprise.  Billy opened a special gift from his “bride-to-be”…a special moment captured.  Love that!

We directed the groomsmen outside for some EPIC FOXWOODS photos, then hid the guys away so that Katie could come out and dance her dress about in the wind, outside.

The wedding ceremony, was beautiful, and Matt from MV FILM PRODUCTIONS captured their cinema.  Flowers were classic and elegant, thanks to Stylish Blooms” Bristol CT.

The Lake of Isles has some gorgeous grounds, with wooden bridges and green grasses, which made photos amazingly fun!

Congrats to Billy and Katie, best wishes and enjoy!

The sun was bright and the day was perfect for Lisa and Jasons’ Candlewood Inn Wedding. The personal touches from Lisa’s blue ribbon sash, Betsey Johnson shoes, and the groomsmen sporting leather suspenders, were picture perfect.  Beauty Entourage left our bridal party looking like supermodels and our bride was a shinning star of elegance.  The men were getting ready at the lake house, and looked like GQ models on the boat deck.  We had sun when we needed it and the stormy-cool-cloud coverage at The Candlewood Inn, that was just perfect timing and gave a dramatic flare to their family shots. We were excited to set out to “Lovers Leap Bridge” with Lisa to capture some romantic shots with her groom Jason…OMG the two of them on the red bridge were magazine worthy .

Congratulations Lisa and Jason . -Patricia & Airen Miller

Saint Clements Castle is always so much fun to photograph, and the wedding of Jennifer and David was filled with so much laughter and love.

Jennifer’s father awaited her arrival at the castle for a “first look” to see his daughter for the first time in the dress she had chosen.

The wedding ceremony took place over the beautiful views of the Connecticut River, with vows and kisses, the happy couple was ready to party, and thanks to DJ Harry G. of HG Entertainment…the newlyweds partied and mingled with their guests throughout the fantastic night.

Congrats & Best Wishes!

A wedding at Aria, with Hartford City Hall, amazing graffiti and a Maggie Sottero Designs wedding dress. Total hotness. Amazing blue sky day with modern style, edgy looks. I had a total BLAST photographing these two!

Jennifer and Jamie had a luxury wedding experience at the grand Aria Banquets in Prospect CT.  With vows, tears and kisses at their family church of Our Lady of Fatima, we explored some of the coolest photo opt locations that Hartford has to offer.

Enjoy!

Completely amazing classic wedding at The Society Room of Hartford.  Ashley and Bens’ Hartford wedding was elegant and romantic in every way.

The Men were getting ready at the nearby Residence Inn, where we took to the streets.  They stopped traffic…literally.  Capturing some modern formal coolness, we headed back to see what the ladies were up to.

Surrounded by her bridal party ladies, and sporting some HOT Jimmy Choo shoes, Ashley was ready to rock. Umm Jimmy Choo shoes!?!? YES!  We had the pleasure of working with one of our favorite makeup & hair teams: Dana Bartone & Co… adding the final touches to perfection. Totally a dream team!

Ashley and Ben planned a “first look” outside on the urban landscape of Hartford… They met eyes with each other to cheers from friends and family as well as the locals who looked on.  Priceless.

Hartford City Hall was a blast for capturing wedding imagery; with its elegant architecture and classic grace, it fit perfectly with Ashley and Bens’classic and elegant wedding theme.

Their Society Room of Hartford wedding rocked into the night, and we had such a blast photographing it!  Check out all the AMAZING DETAILS!

Congrats and Enjoy!

Here it is, some wedding fashion inspiration for those looking for some ultra sexy vintage Hollywood chic.

A girls night out. Hot hollywood vibes, and gold foil martinis. Hot fanciful fun.

I just love the gold tones and rich silks that gave way to sumptuous fashionable deliciousness.  It was really like photographing a hollywood movie set, circa 1950.

Photographing golden frosted cupcakes and decadent chocolate shared by two beautiful ladies, what can be better?

And…

When the lights went down, the session turned up the heat, as the ladies wore vintage nightgowns and rocked some of the coolest pinup shots..like ever!

Special thanks to all the team involved:

When it’s cold outside, I love reflecting on summer weddings, the warmth the sunshine and the happiness and beauty that entertain the day. Tracy and Steve we married on a beautiful warm day, at one of our favorite wedding reception locations… The Barns at Wesleyan Hills.   Tracy and her bridesmaids were a fun group, getting ready at the charming Inn at Middletown.  The happy couple kept with tradition, not seeing each other before the ceremony, yet we were able to sneak them real close…with the hotel doorway blocking each others view.  They held hands, and read from love notes to each other.  Ceremony time was approaching, and as I peaked into the limo, we captured a little sharing of a flask between father and daughter (too cute!) The ceremony was about to begin.  The Barns at Wesleyan offered a perfect backdrop to the ceremony, with sweeping views of water and willows, the couple tied the knot to applause…and a few tears by Tracy’s father.  Trish and I had a fantastic time capturing the warm summer day, so enjoy!
