Heather and Joe met through their work in the medical community. They began as friends, and, as most “friends-turned-into-more” couples, their deeply-rooted friendship is evident in the way that they interact with each other. It was a joy to be a part of their wedding day. They both teared during their vows – along with many in the room. And, they both laughed whole-heartedly at the toasts and expressions of their friends and colleagues with whom they danced the rainy night away (to the tunes of one of my favorite Connecticut bands, The Savage Brothers).
It was a beautiful and special day – BUT it really wasn’t the wedding day that these two sun and boating-lovers had envisioned….. Heather and Joe’s day started out a little drizzly…. and as we left the bride’s home to head to the shoreline, it got more and more drizzly and much more windy! The ceremony had to be moved inside to the Grand Ballroom at the Water’s Edge instead of out near the beach. And, we had to do our family photos under cover. We did decide to take the risk of heading to the beach via the golf carts (be sure to check out the pic of Joe with all the girls in the cart – it is one of my favorites!) for the bridal party pics. No sooner had we gotten to the water’s edge (no pun intended), than the skies opened up on us! The girls ran for cover, the boys ran for the port-o-lets(?!?!?!?!). And, Helen and I made a mad dash to try to keep our gear safe and dry! (There was one official casualty in that department – thank goodness for backup gear and Nikon Pro Services!!!).
So knowing how much these two love the water and the sunshine, be watching for a fun post-wedding bridal shoot…. we have some great ideas in the works – and this time, we hope to get better cooperation from Mother Nature!
Thanks again to Heather and Joe for inviting us to share this day with you.
I will be adding the rest of the vendor links later….. I can’t get to that file right now and I didn’t want to wait until Monday to post these images!
And here begins our mad dash to the beach for photos…… can we beat the rain?!?!?!
The answer is no……. 🙁
They both had such great images dancing with their parents….
And a huge thanks to my Associate Photographer, Helen, for helping me cover the dance floor action!
And though the rain never let up, we covered our lighting gear in plastic bags and headed up to take this shot at the end of the night…..
