I Believe In A Love That Pushes You - I Choose Us

He looked at me with watery eyes and I stared back at him through my own tears. His blurry form so familiar to me I would know his bald head and blue eyes anywhere. We hugged, and I felt safe against his warm chest as I soaked his sweater in tears. We were only going to be apart for 3 or 4 days at a time, but it would be for nine full months. Nine months of Scott in Boston and me in Hartford throughout the week. Nine months of Scott driving two hours back to me on Thursday nights and two hours away from me on Sunday evenings. We hadn't spent that much time apart since college breaks almost ten years before. But as sad as I was to face nine months of living mostly apart, I was so incredibly proud of him and happy for him and excited for us. 

Scott was taking a huge leap of faith in himself and pursuing a big scary dream. My risk-averse actuary of a husband. You know, like the character Ben Stiller plays in Along Came Polly, except Scott was in health insurance not life insurance. That was Scott. My always-make-a-reservation-just-in-case, boy scouts are always prepared, measure twice, cut once husband was leaving a job that topped every "best career" list to chase his dream of becoming a college professor of English. Of course, the actuary in him had been planning and preparing. He'd already gone back to school and gotten his masters in English (because what Phd English program is going to take a math major?!). And here we were in Boston, moving him back into a dorm room, so he could start classes at Boston College in a few days. 

As I drove away from his dorm that crisp fall day, watching him wave in the rearview mirror, I had to pull over and ugly cry before I could drive the rest of the way home. Our lives were going to change forever. We were no longer on the path we had been on just a few days prior. But Scott was on fire for the first time in a long time and we both knew he needed to do this, we needed to do this. Because that's how we go through life. Together. Because we love each other enough to also love and support the dreams and passions we each hold. And when he showed up back in Hartford five days later for his weekend at home with me, we had so much to talk about and so much joy to share. Yes, I believe in a love that allows you to live with passion and pushes you to pursue your dreams, especially the big scary ones that make your palms sweat and your heart beat faster. Because loving someone well means choosing them and choosing their dreams. And as Tea Leoni says in The Family Man, "I choose us".

Chic Belle Haven Club Wedding - Mary & Andrew - Greenwich, CT

Chic summer weddings on the water are some of my favorite and this elegant Belle Haven Club affair in Greenwich, CT was no exception! I was thrilled to capture Mary and Andrew's wedding for Brooke Allison Photography Studio and was joined by Lindsay Comer and Julia D'Agostino who helped capture every sweet moment. Together we witnessed Mary and Andrew tie the knot in a picture-perfect setting while basking in the love of their family and friends. It was a dream.

Getting Ready and Bridal Details

Mary and Andrew had a beautiful July day for their wedding. All of the details and decor for their day were planned and styled to perfection by the incredibly talented ladies of Stella Day Events. Mary chose lovely bridal details to show off her classic style. Her stunning gown was from A Little Something White. Her gorgeous hair was done by Milexy Couture and her flawless makeup by Aliza Noelle.  She got ready with her mom and sister and all of her ladies (including four of the cutest little flower girls!) at the Belle Haven Club while Andrew and the groomsmen prepped and relaxed nearby. The day was incredibly chic but also warm, casual, and fun because Mary and Andrew are so incredibly warm, genuine, and fun-loving. Andrew wrote Mary a letter that she opened before putting on her dress and it made her absolutely giddy. She was smiling from ear-to-ear and after reading it looked up and said, "I am so in love with him!" It was one of countless moments that overflowed with love and joy throughout the day.

The Ceremony: Saying "I Do"

Mary and Andrew's little flower girls were SO adorable! They each wore flower crowns of fresh blooms for the day and dropped white rose petals down the aisle. It's safe to say they stole the show a few times throughout the day! The soft peach tones of the florals by McArdle's Florist of Greenwich accented the sea foam blue hue of the bridesmaids' dresses perfectly. The full effect was lovely to see when they were all lined up to witness Mary and Andrew saying "I do". Throughout the ceremony Andrew kept making Mary laugh and the goofy and silly love they share shone through. The bird's eye view of the ceremony is such a great one at the Belle Haven Club thanks to the windows in the bridal suite that overlook the lawn. Having a second (and third in this case) photographer for the day allowed us to capture this great angle. But nothing beats the looks on Mary and Andrew's faces right after their first kiss - how great was their reaction!?!

Bridal Party & Newlywed Portraits

Mary and Andrew did not want to see each other before the ceremony, but they also wanted to get to at least some of their cocktail hour to party with their guests. So we did some of their family portraits before the ceremony, along with their bridal party portraits that were separate (think Mary and the ladies and Andrew and the guys!). After the ceremony we took photos of the full bridal party and finished family portraits. Then we did some couples portraits and saved the rest for a bit later when the sun was closer to setting. This way, Mary and Andrew got to spend some of cocktail hour with all of their loved ones and still had beautiful portraits. 

First Dance and Toasts by Candlelight

The beautiful sail cloth tent from Greenwich Tent and the flowers accented by candles got even prettier as the sun went down and the candles began to glow. The look was made complete with rentals from Smith Party Rentals. Mary and Andrew's first dance was sweet and fun and they got all of their wedding guests out on the dance floor with them before sitting down for dinner. The Maid of Honor and Best Man gave funny and touching toasts, but I have to say my favorite toast of the night was from Andrew himself. He shared several moments in which he realized how wonderful Mary was and how much he loved her, all leading up to the moment he knew he wanted to marry her. Andrew is a great storyteller and his speech was funny, sweet, made Mary laugh, and made the whole tent full of people cry at just how very much in love they are. 

Congratulations you two! XOXO
