When two people come together and can make beautiful music as the saying goes it is a wonder to behold. In the case of Katelyn and Patrick both musicians their coming together has literally made for a blossom of music and creativity with their Pop music band Patrick and Kate Music.
When Katelyn came to me with her wedding plans there were some large breaks in the middle of the day with uncertainty of how to use the time as well as a late fall reception time that left very little time of daylight for their portraits at The Riverview om Simsbury. So I worked with them and helped revise their timeline and suggested to add a portrait location at Topsmead State Park during the late afternoon gap to take advantage of the daylight and proximity to their church wedding ceremony in Litchfield.
Their wedding was a multi location wedding starting in Torrington, Connecticut with getting ready shots of the guys and girls at different locations. I started the day off with getting ready shots of Patrick and his groomsmen at their parent's home in Torrington, Connecticut. Part of the getting ready shots was gift giving to the groomsmen and Patrick opening a letter from Katelyn.
With the guys all dressed and ready, the text destination was Torringford Manor Bed and Breakfast-a historic old home that was the perfect venue for Katelyn's getting ready photos. We started with photos of Katelyn getting ready, then shots of her bridesmaid in their robes followed by Katelyn reading a letter from Patrick.
The next location was The First Congregational Church in Litchfield for their wedding ceremony which included two pastors and a sand ceremony. This was an old New England Church with no center aisle but aisles on both sides of the church. It was very different, a bit of a challenge to photograph as their wasn't much space to move around in at the alter but all came out great and it made for some great shots
With their wedding ceremony completed we headed to Topsmead State Forest for photos of the wedding party, family portraits and photos of Katelyn and Patrick. We had a beautiful day and great fall weather.
With the portraits complete we headed to The Riverview Wedding Venue for their reception in Simsbury, Connecticut. We moved quickly as the sun was setting fast and we were loosing light. We went down to the Farmington River to take in some photos together with the setting sun.
With all the portraits completed outside it was time to move into the beautiful reception hall overlooking the river and time for the festivities to begin. Included in the evening were introductions a duet song sung by Patrick and Katelyn.
Numerous toasts were made followed by dinner.
Next Katelyn danced with both her father and step dad as well as Patrick dancing with his mother.
Cake cutting and lot of great dancing followed.
We finished the evening off with portraits of Katelyn and Patrick in the beautiful entrance to the Riverview with the beautiful marble floor and large columns. It was an amazing wedding day celebration with 5 locations and beautiful time spent on their wedding day.
