Classic Connecticut wedding with a Travel Theme
Viviane and John were married on a gorgeously overcast (i’m not even joking–I LOVE overcast!!) day at the Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill wedding in Middletown CT. It’s such a beautiful building with a rich history (Wikipedia it for info!) and is truly one of CT’s most stunning venues. Viv had a lot of family and friends come from overseas and France, which for me anyway, really leant a distinctly international flair to the evening!
Viv and th ladies get ready at the Inn at Middletown. We were digging the guys choice in socks too!
I just loved the backlit detailing of the dress.
Thanks to Ian Witschy for second shooting and getting this cool show shot for me!
While the guys were relaxing, the ladies completed dress preparations for the First Look
These poor Grooms–always made to wait – LOL
While comparing socks we discovered the ladies had QUITE the shoe variety going on!
Going for a little vintage, old school look here—
Since so many people came from so far and that the couple travel so much THEMSELVES, the detailing theme was – you guessed it! TRAVEL!
One of my favorite from the day–Viv’s step-dad waiting patiently for the ceremony to begin.
Check out the travel inspired cupcake display from Hope at A Little Imagination Cakes!!!
Pre-ceremony nap time.
The ceremony was quickly moved inside due to a constant light drizzle outside.
great lighting from my pal Dan at Shindig Lighting
This was indeed a dancing crowd!!!!
