Wes and Kristen's Wedding-Madison Beach Hotel

Madison Beach Hotel

Madison, Connecticut


Connecticut has its share of wedding beach venues both old and historic and posh and modern.  Wes and Kristen's wedding at the Madison falls into the category of the latter-A posh modern Connecticut wedding hotel and venue.  The Madison Hotel is smaller in comparison to it's cousin the Water's Edge on the coast in Westbook but makes up for it in it's quaint and intimate size and beautiful shoreline rock outcroppings that make the perfect backdrop for wedding portraits.

Thus the backdrop is set for this January wedding.  When I met with Wes and Kristen and helped them plan out their wedding day, the weather was going to be a determining factor to fulfill Wes and Kristen's wishes for both a first look on the beach and also portraits on the rocks with the setting sun.  The week before temperatures were -3 degrees but bounced back up to right around freezing.  The sun was shining and the wind not too bad.  This allowed us to pull off both the "First Look" photos outside as well as for me to capture some stunning portraits on the rocks with the beautiful late afternoon clouds and sunset.

Their ceremony was inside in the upstairs ceremony/banquet room kissed with the South facing sun pouring in.  The ceremony was followed by a wonderful cocktail hour.  Their reception included a first dance, father daughter dance, and a groom/sister dance, three toasts and fun, fun fun from their introductions to their last dance.  It was a wonderful celebration of Wes and Kristen surrounded by the company of family and friends. Here to wishing you you both all the best in your new lives together as husband and wife.
