Meeting Kim & Tim

Before their chic wedding at Latitude 41, Kim and Tim are found each other during their time at Boston College (Go Eagles!). After college they both ended up in CA, reconnected while there, and the rest is history! Kim said she knew Tim was a great guy when he surprised her on her move-in day in CA with flowers and a 6-pack of beer on her doorstep as a welcome present! And their proposal story is awesome. I especially love it because I also love running and so this makes me smile extra big. One evening, Tim surprised Kim on their run along the beach with a sign carved out in the sand asking her to marry him. He even had friends hiding nearby to capture photos of the moment when he got down on one knee! How amazing is that?! This is just one great example of how incredibly caring and sweet these two are together.

I met Kim and Tim on their wedding day, after speaking to Kim once on the phone the week before her wedding. You see, my dear photographer friend Brooke was severely ill (hospital visits and bed rest ill) and I was filling in for her at the last minute. Kim and I chatted for almost an hour on the phone the week before the wedding and I knew she was taking the last minute change in stride and was going to have an amazing wedding day by the time we hung up. From the moment I arrived on the wedding day Kim was all smiles and the sunny fall day matched her demeanor perfectly. The talented Tim Mannle met the groom Tim for getting ready and served as an amazing partner for the day as we photographed their wedding together. After getting ready, we left to meet Tim for their first look and it only got better from there!

First Look: A Sunny Day At Latitude 41

We found the shade of tree at Latitude 41 for their first look and then quickly moved down to the water with their bridal party and family to take photos before the ceremony. Latitude 41 sits right on the edge of Mystic Seaport and right on the water. It's a great space for a wedding with access to the Seaport for photos, views over the water for guests during cocktail hour, and a lovely warm, reception room with high ceilings, wood beams, and tasteful nautical inspired decor. We were able to capture all of their bridal party and family photos and do some sweet couples portraits during their first look.

Ceremony: St. Mary Church in Stonington, CT

The ceremony was lovely and full of joy. Kim and Tim grinned ear-to-ear throughout the entire thing and were so excited to marry one another. They said their vows surrounded by family and friends and the love was palpable. They then boarded a trolley as newlyweds with their bridal party to head to the reception where they had arranged for their puppy to stop by for some family photos!

Sunset Wedding Portraits At Mystic Seaport

Their puppy was all dressed for the occasion and the warm golden hour light was amazing. We explored the Seaport and found all kinds of great places for them to snuggle up and take some moments together as husband and wife as we captured their love on camera!

Time To Party

Kim and Tim were able to relax and hang out with their guests for the last half of their cocktail hour since they did a first look. Everyone was relaxing on the lawn and enjoying the sunset on the water. They even had a band for the evening to provide the music and it was so much fun!Kim and Tim - you two are so sweet and I'm so happy for you! Congratulations XO

Elegant Simsbury, CT Riverview Wedding ~ Lauren & Eric

Simsbury CT Riverview Wedding Photographer

Lauren and Eric are college sweethearts - yay! I just love stories of college sweethearts because that's exactly what Scott and I are and I know from experience that if you can grow toward each other as you grow up you can share one amazing love. And that amazing, soulmate, best friend love is exactly what Lauren and Eric share! They moved from CT to TX a few years ago for Eric's job. Eric planned a sweet proposal in their living room while Lauren was face-timing with her parents so they got to witness the proposal even though they were half way across the country. How clever is that?! While they enjoy living in the Lone Star state, they came back to CT for their wedding and planned an elegant wedding at Riverview in Simsbury, CT to celebrate their love.

Getting Ready: Floral Robes, Fun Socks, & Love Notes

The Simsbury Inn is right down the road form Riverview and was the perfect spot for Lauren and Eric to get ready. Lauren bought the sweetest floral robes for her bridesmaids and they wore them as they had hair and makeup done by the incredibly talented team from Transcendent. Lauren's stunning lace-covered Casablanca gown was from Ventura's Bridal in Houston. Not to be outdone by the ladies, Eric and the groomsmen all sported some preppy colorful socks that added to their dapper look for the day as well! One of my favorite parts of the getting ready process was when Eric and Lauren each took a moment to breathe deep and read a love note from the other. They wrote them in vow books and each took a moment in their separate getting ready rooms to pause and take in the love that they share before we headed out for their first look. I love the idea of a lifetime of writing love notes to each other and I your wedding day is the perfect time to start!

 

First Look: Wedding Day Snuggles and Bridal Party Fun

Lauren and Eric wanted to enjoy every moment of their wedding celebration and they really wanted a private moment together when they saw each other for the first time, so they decided to do a first look. We headed to the Old Drake Hill Flower Bridge in Simsbury where they got to see each other, hug, kiss, and snuggle up for the first round of couple's portraits. Lauren's bridal bouquet from Branford Flowers fit right in with the gorgeous blooms on the flower bridge. Then we went to the most magical grove of trees on the side of the road. Seriously, it was a random roadside that they had discovered the night before. And it could not have been more perfect! I'm pretty sure I squealed with glee when we got there! You'll see why below. We took more couples portraits there and met their bridal party for portraits there as well. It was ah-mazing and I still have all the heart eyes! Lauren & Eric are such sweet people that it's no surprise their bridal party was full of sweet and fun friends and family who made each other laugh. They brought such a positive energy to the day and really made the portraits a joyful process.

Ceremony & First Dance: Celebrating as Mr & Mrs

The ceremony took place at Riverview and the personable officiant Sal of Weddings By Sal led them through their marriage vows. Sal did a lovely job of making the ceremony meaningful and special for them as a couple. But my favorite part of the ceremony was seeing how Lauren and Eric, even though they had spent the last few hours together for photos and relaxing with their bridal party, still couldn't keep their eyes off each other. They got lost in each other time and time again throughout the ceremony. That is one powerful beautiful love. 

 

Reception: Sweet Details

The day was special in so many ways, but Lauren explained being really excited for two main reasons: "I'm excited to marry my best friend and am excited to celebrate with all of our friends and family. I'm also really excited to dance and see all our friends from home. It will also be like a reunion for a lot of us since we all live in different states now." Needless to say, there was plenty of dancing and Collins Entertainment did a great job of keeping the dance floor moving all night long. Oh an done more thing, as if I needed any more proof that these two were amazing, Lauren's signature drink was a sparkling margarita! I'm a HUGE fan of both tequila and champagne and her cocktail put them together!!! I drooled a little but I was on the clock so I did not try one that night - however, next time you two are in New England - Margaritas are on me! They also gave homemade biscotti to their guests and had a gorgeous wedding cake made in house at Riverview. XO Cheers and congratulations Lauren and Eric!
