Okay, so, let me start by saying – I am beyond thankful that I was the photographer blessed with the opportunity to work with this amazingly sweet couple. Carrie and Doug were so kind and genuine, and their wedding day was just perfect and everything they deserved. They got ready at the Farmington Inn in the quaint town of Farmington, Connecticut. The rest of the day took place just down the road, at the beautiful Farmington Gardens. The ceremony location was a photographer’s dream – a spectacular greenhouse flooded with glorious natural lighting. Oh and some lovely Chinese lanterns… a detail that I always love. The weather was just about perfect, too – very warm for this early spring day in March – which allowed us to get outside and take some portraits in the field just behind the venue. Then it was on to the celebration – a pretty sweet beer-themed reception. Each table was labeled with the names of some of Carrie and Doug’s favorite breweries. And to add to the awesome, this bride and groom surprised their guests with a wicked hilarious first dance… you’ll see ;-) Another surprise took place later, one that the bride didn’t even know about… a tear-jerking rendition of “Sweet Caroline” played on the acoustic guitar by her father, while the guests sang along – some with kazoos in hand. It was a stunning evening, and I was beyond thrilled to be a part of it. Thank you, ever so much, for inviting me to share in the love and fun of your wedding day, Carrie and Doug!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for stopping by!! xo, Courtney
