Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill wedding | Viv+John

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!

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.

The ceremony was quickly moved inside due to a constant light drizzle outside.
