Lauren + Tims wedding @ Gershon Fox Ballroom

Marquee Events, Hartford CT | CT wedding photographer

Well i’m a little delayed here with this post, but better late than never  (besides, if you’re missing the snow this will bring your RIGHT back to this past Winter!)

When I met with Lauren and Tim here at the house, I was SO excited because I literally had said to a friend that previous week : “I really wish I could do a wedding at the G Fox Room in Hartford” In walk Lauren & Tim telling me that it not only will be at that venue, but a WINTER wedding (which I love) to top it off. I always tell my couples that they’d better prepare to get out in the snow should we happen to get any the day of (why have a Winter wedding otherwise?!)  Well boy, oh boy did we get snow that day as you will soon see—-

This was so amazingly sweet- Tim was so struck emotionally by Lauren’s gift that he broke down for a moment

Lauren’s dad has such an expressive face

Tim bought Lauren a Nikon D3100, which I joked I was gong to steal when she wasn’t looking 🙂

We setup our first look away from everyone for a little privacy
