Saint Matthews Catholic Church, Tolland Connecticut

Belding Wildlife Management Area, Vernon Connecticut

Airbnb, Coventry, Connecticut


Haleigh and Shane, like many couples in 2020 had not only to downsize their wedding in their guest count from an original 90 down to only their immediate family of 15, they also were not able to have their reception at their planned venue the Hill-Stead Museum and instead rented a luxurious Airbnb in Coventry, Connecticut where they stayed at and had their reception.

Their wedding started off at Saint Matthews Catholic Church in Tolland Connecticut with portraits of the groom Shane and his family on the church grounds.  The fall colors were starting to turn in very nice and added to beauty of the photos.  

After the ceremony, Haleigh and Shane went to a favorite place of theirs, Belding, Wildlife Management area to a place called the wildflower meadow.  The autumn colors were in peak colors and made for amazing photos.  We spent a nice amount of time taking photos of them in the beautiful fields with autumn foliage.  

Next I went to the Airbnb in Coventry, Connecticut for more family portraits and their reception.  The colors were in peak display at the Airbnb making for such amazing portraits

After their portraits we moved inside as the sun was setting for their intimate reception consisting of a catered dinner, toasts by Haleigh's sister and father, a first dance on the outdoor deck, parent dances and a cake cutting.

Although they had to make major changes in their original wedding plans to adhere to the Covid-19 restrictions, they were still able to have their wedding on their original wedding day surrounded by close friends and family.  It made for a beautiful wedding day celebration.
