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—
It’s really hard to get a bad shot if Michelle!
..we headed to the church in Westport, where Michelle and dad arrived in another vintage car of his!
I guess I was a bit enamored with this dress–sorry!
Joseph’s parents come down the aisle
They had a family friend who performed the service
a little off the cuff portrait during the ceremony
Ahhh yes–we have bubbles and golden sunlight!!!
we then scoot do veer to Compo Beach in Westport for a few quick photos before they threw us out 🙂
afterwards- we got on the party bus for some photographs in South Norwalk
If there is a=such a thing as a ‘favorite wall’, then this one in SoNo is one of them!
more amazing backlight!
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!
it was then onto Shore and Country
a few really entertaining toasts!
I had to include this, since this is a past couple and her folks who were in attendance as well
Jillian from HotHouse band keeping the night rocking
this was a DANCIN’ crowd!
As a late-night snack, Duchess stopped by with burgers and hot dogs. I may have had a hot dog.
Or maybe 2…..
We had some lanterns late-night as well, and after a few rocky starts we finally got one ready for liftoff
(although I was certain THIS one was going to ignite the entire town of Norwalk when it landed in the grasses!!)
