Alysson+Michael @ Jonathan Edwards Winery

Alysson and Michael were married on May 28th at one of my favorite spots–Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonginton, CT. Both Alysson & Michael got ready at the Mystic Marriott…so I got to see a little photo action in both rooms before heading over for our First Look…

this was pretty cool – the dress hanger was an Etsy find—Alyson’s ‘new last name’ twisted into the metal!

I found the vineyard post with the same number as their wedding day…pretty clever, huh?

despite the beautiful, soft diffused light we had—something about this one shot seemed old and B&W to me—

so theres a cute story here to this image– the brides Nephew was brought over by her Dad to try and get in a group shot, but as as he got close to the wedding party, he turned and bolted in the other direction—it really was pretty cute!!

I actually waited and had them hold their kiss for the tractor to pull right into the perfect spot in the frame.

This was pretty cool–the ‘programs’ were small card placed in holders which were then inserted into guests Sangrias or beverage as they took their seats! Neat idea, I thought! Great catering as usual, by A Thyme To Cook.

This is not really a ‘wedding’ image I know—but it got VERY foggy in the evening and i grabbed this hot of a guest outside the tent on his cell phone. Something about it—I don’t know… just think it’s cool!

a few tears all around as they surprised Alysson with an A cappella recording of her Grandfather singing! SO SWEET!!

the new father-in-laws feed each other cake…!

just wanted to leave a quick thank you to you both for letting me be a part of the day and for making it all so fun…many, many congrats!

    I have to be honest Robert, I think this is one of my favorites weddings from you by far. I don’t know what it is about this one but you totally captured “it”. The emotions, the lighting, the colors, the ambiance, the details. I just love the whole story here and can’t pick a favorite image. The getting ready shots are amazing, all of it. Bravo!

    Great candid shots, you captured the moment.

  4. Alysson & Michael look incredible in your vineyard pictures – they’re my favorite! I especially loved the black and white image, it came out awesome! Great job!
