WOW–where do I start?! You all know that i’ve been to Saltwater Farm quite a bit this season, in fact started the year off there, and this last wedding there of the season did not disappoint!! Aside from a spectacular, chilly Fall CT as the background, there were beautiful details everywhere I looked! And a fun couple–and well..just read on—

meanwhile Dave Noonan who was second shooting for me, was doing something creative with the flowers in a stairwell

I posted these on facebook the other day as a preview, since I normally do not shoot this ‘grainy’ but thought these had a really nice feeling to them

ok now listen – when I saw these vintage plates (and I mean REALLY vintage like Grandma’s, not faux-knock-off-Vintage) I got SOOO excited. I LOVE stuff like this and did not know it was available for rental! Even the silverware was cool!

and even more special than all that, was Tara O’Gradywho normally does NOT do weddings – who was on hand for some smooth and swining vintage jazz tunes. THATS my kinda party—
