Shore and Country Club wedding | Michelle+Joe

A Connecticut Coastal wedding in Norwalk | SoNo

Michelle and Joe were married this past Sept in Westport with a reception following at the Shore and Country Club in Norwalk. I started the day with the ladies at Michelle’s Dad’s house

Michelle’s Mom who had passed away, was close by all day with a photo attached to her bouquet.

So this DRESS–let me tell you about this dress from Fontana Bridal– I went to lift it to move it into the window for this photos and thought it was caught on something since it was difficult to lift. However it wasn’t my weakness in play, but rather the sheer weight of it with all the custom hand-beading. If memory serves me correctly, it was something like 40 pounds!!!

Michelle’s dad collects cars, so we HAD to use this one which i threatened I was going to drive away in—

Grabbing these images under the train tracks took a bit of fast moving as I was trying to avoid traffic and not get run over standing in the middle of the road—but it’s great how most folks keep calm when they see a bride involved!
