December was a very busy month for me this year with four Christmas theme weddings this year. Many of the venues will decorate their space with Christmas trees, lights and wreaths to bring in the holiday season. This can make for beautiful photos and add that sense of Christmas magic and wonder to your wedding day. Ben and Noverlee had their wedding at the The Woodwinds in Branford which was so beautiful inside with Christmas decorations adorning the stairs in the entrance and fireplace room. Noverlee's family came all the way from the Caribbean to attend so it was a multi-cultural wedding. Noverlee's bridesmaids were dressed in red dresses and Ben's groomsmen were in black suits with red ties to match.
We began their wedding with getting ready shots in the bridal suite with Noverlee and here bridesmaids helping.
They had their ceremony inside the fireplace room and before the ceremony I took a few shots with Ben.
With all the guests seated we began the wedding ceremony with the procession by Noverlee's bridesmaids, followed by Noverlee's procession with her mom and dad.
With the ceremony complete we took portraits during the cocktail hour on the staircase so beautifully decorated for the holidays.
We then began their reception first with detail and table shots of the reception hall, then introductions, their first dance and Noverlee's father daughter dance and toasts.
The toasts were followed by dinner and some great dancing, cake cutting and the amazing Venetian dessert bar at The Woodwinds which is one of the best in Connecticut.
It was a great reception with lost of fantastic dancing and music. As things started winding down I went outside with Noverlee and Ben for some night shots outside the venue. It was raining outside but we were able to shoot under the large canopy in the front of the venue to stay dry but at the same time get some beautiful night shots with the Christmas lights.
What a beautiful way to end the 2019 wedding season. Merry Christmas to all and Happy New Year.
