Wee Burn Beach Club Wedding - Tori + Justin

Their Love Story

Tori & Justin’s Wee Burn Beach Club wedding in September last year was a perfect mixture of classic New England with chic beach vibes. That mixture perfectly encapsulates them as well - two New Englanders who love the outdoors - as proved by their proposal story! Tori & Justin got engaged while hiking in Glacier National Park. Tori’s family has a cabin out near the park and she has grown up vacationing there and hiking in the park. It’s one of her favorite places and so, Justin decided to pop the question when they were on one of these family vacations. They were hiking Tori’s favorite trail and were near a nice lookout the trail offered when Justin let the family hike ahead and dropped to one knee to ask Tori to marry him. She was totally surprised and could not have been happier. Then her family figured out that they were no longer behind them on the trail and hiked back a bit to catch the good news and celebrate the proposal!

When I heard their story Scott and I had just recently hiked and camped in Glacier for the first time and I had fallen instantly in love with the park. It is a ruggedly beautiful place. We spent a week and wished we could have stayed for longer, so hearing about their hikes and swapping stories of favorite spots in the park made these two feel like old friends on our very first call. And over the course of the year leading up to their wedding, these two proved to be so in love and so laid back about their wedding - really staying focused on how excited they were and how happy they were to be able to celebrate with friends and family. They hosted an absolutely beautiful and full of special details and personal touches!

Getting Ready & First Look

Tori went to Lanphier Salon for their hair and makeup and then finished getting ready at her parent’s home, with her twin sister serving as her maid of honor and the sweetest group of ladies by her side. I started with photographs of Tori’s bridal details and of their stunning custom invitation suite. The suite was done by Louise York of Paper Trousseau with Justin designing the monogram! They toasted by the pool in adorable pjs before getting dressed in lovely gray bridesmaids gowns by Hayley Paige. Tori was helped into her Amsale dress her sister and mom in a room flooded with sunlight. Tori’s dad came in for a reveal moment and you really got to see the entire family full of love and joy - so incredibly happy for Tori and for the love she and Justin share. Justin got ready nearby with his groomsmen - dawning tailored navy suits and gray ties - and then came over to Tori’s parent’s home for their first look. It was such a sweet moment as Justin walked out to see Tori. They had a semi-private moment on the stone patio in the back of the house with their parents and all of the bridesmaids watching (and crying happy tears!) through the windows and back door! Then we invited everyone outside to join them for family photos before we headed to the beach!

Wee Burn Beach Club Portraits

It was a beautiful sunny day for their wedding with a nice warmth in the air that balanced with a cool breeze. A fall day in New England at its best! Tori and Justin love the beach and were thrilled to have their reception at the beach club, so we did their bridal party portraits and a few more couples portraits right on the beach at Wee Burn Beach Club before their ceremony. We also got to take a quick peek at the reception room as Flowers and Flowers by Adam was just finishing the hanging floral installations! Eek! So pretty!!

Talmadge Hill Community Church Ceremony

Talmidge Hill Community Church is Tori’s family church. She attended all while growing up and it is the cutest and smallest little church. It’s also quintessential New England! They packed it to the brim with loved ones for the ceremony. Tori looked stunning as she was walked down the aisle by her dad - both grinning from ear to ear. She and Justin wrote their own vows and had everyone in the place tearing up as they read them to each other. After they processed out they hopped into a getaway car decked out with a Just Married sign for a fun exit from the church. They waved to family and friends as they headed to the reception and were there to welcome them to their cocktail hour.

Wee Burn Beach Club Reception

Cocktail hour took place outside as the sun started to set over the water. Wee Burn has a large brick patio area adjacent to the beach with steps down to the sand so guests could take full advantage of the sunset and water views. They served passed apps and had a raw bar during cocktail hour that perfectly fit the beachside venue. Guests were then ushered into dinner and served their first course before toasts. Then after dinner Tori & Justin had their first dance and parent dances to open up the dance floor and cut their cake done by Sweet Lisa’s. The Eturnity Band kept the dance floor packed all night long and were super interactive - coming out onto the dance floor to sing and dance alongside guests. At the end of the night Tori and Justin left through a tunnel of sparklers as they said goodbye to their loved ones. It was a wonderful day from start to finish and every single person wore their hearts on their sleeves throughout the entire day. There were happy tears and belly laughs and smiles all day long. Congratulations you two! XO

Walk Through A Wedding Workshop

Lynne Reznick

So, one of the things I was most excited about when taking the leap to go full time with my business was making the time/having the time to invest in my own development. To be a student again and to work on my craft. When I first started out six years ago, I did this more frequently and then life happened and that got harder to do. So I was beyond excited to attend the two-day Walk Through a Wedding Workshop last month led by the generous and knowledgable dynamic husband and wife team of Justin and Mary Marantz. 

And it was sooooo good! Not only was it pretty and styled and indulgent (they kicked things off with a three course meal and drinks at their home), but it was packed full and overflowing with information. I really signed up for the portion on lighting, and that was awesome, but it was so much more than that. It was a chance to reflect and learn about all aspects of my business. It was a great chance to get reenergized, to explore where I want my business and my photography to go next, and to remember why I love being a wedding photographer. The days were seriously 12 hours long because they were so filled with solid and valuable content. And of course, we took photos! So here are some of my favorites from the two days. And if you're a photographer looking to up your game - definitely check out Justin and Mary's workshop - it is very much worth the investment and then some!

And enjoy a couple behind the scenes shots at the end! We had an awesome group of inspiring and passionate women in our session.

Christina & Jordan ~ Lace Factory Wedding, Deep River, CT

Lynne Reznick

There is something truly wonderful about booking your ideal client. And Christina and Jordan were certainly that! For me, that means they are first and foremost head-over-heels in love with each other, that they are genuinely excited to take photos on their wedding day (not just hoping to get through it), and that they value family and friends more than the perfect sunny day. So when I skyped with these two when we first getting to know each other, I was instantly drawn to them and their love story and their plans for an amazing wedding day. First, they are adorable. They seek each others eyes naturally and often, and usually they fall into laughter from there. They held hands, stole kisses, and Jordan even scooped up Christina in the middle of their portraits to give her a twirl. Their love and joy was infectious and their family and friends were amazingly welcoming - making me and Brooke feel right at home like we were old friends with everyone there.

Christina and Jordan met at Springfield College when they were each accepted into the 5 year accelerated dual BS/MS, PA-C program. So you can imagine that they are both passionate and driven individuals. That means over the years they have been supporting each other long distance at times as they each pursued their career goals. Christina shared that "We became absolutely inseparable and spent every second we possibly could together, and we still do. We have been through a lot of tough times in school, going through the same rigorous course loads, without summer breaks, and the long hours of clinical rotations. But we have also made very special memories..." Needless to say, they are absolutely adorable and completely meant to be together. Congratulations and sending love to you both! XO
