This gorgeous evening wedding took place in an outdoor country setting with a beautiful rustic theme. Earlier in the day we had so much fun capturing the First Look at beautiful Harkness Park mansion and barn here in Connecticut. The ceremony was in a sweet little historical church and I love the documentary effect these black and white church photos created for a perfect wedding gallery. We were able to capture some great sunset portraits after the ceremony at this little forest-side gazebo next door. The reception had a small barn tastefully decorated with twinkle lights and antique accents for it’s backdrop. Guests enjoyed toasting s’mores over the cozy country bonfire. To top off the charming country character of this evening, family and friends danced in the heart of the lovingly manicured flower gardens overlooking the glistening pond. This wedding was particularly sentimental because these Highschool Sweethearts were off on an adventure as the groom is enrolled in the Army as a Lieutenant and the bride is off to start her career as a Veterinarian Technician. After the wedding they will travel to Virginia and then Alabama, temporarily leaving their New England roots behind. Knowing that I am responsible for creating one of a kind artwork of this adorable couple for family and friends to cherish forever fills my heart with joy.
