Sandy Hook and Waterbury, Connecticut


Winter weddings though not as common as summer weddings have a special charm of their own especially when snow is on the ground.  It provides for unique photos that present the magical winter wonderland feeling that we know well.  Such was the case for Michelle and Matt's wedding.  A snowstorm right before their wedding left a few inches of snow on the ground that made for beautiful wedding portraits and a magical wedding day.  

Their wedding started off in Sandy Hook, home of the groom, where I took the groom getting ready photos and portraits in downtown Sandy Hook with Matt and his brother the best man.

Melissa had her getting ready photos at her sisters house in Wolcott Connecticut.  Melissa's bridesmaids were by her side to support her and cheer her on.  They were great. We also included a first look with her dad and bridesmaids into the getting ready photos that made for some great candid moments.

We took a brief stop in the party van to take a photos of Melissa and her bridesmaids in the park before heading to the venue for her wedding ceremony.  Spoiler Alert!!  Where did it say to bring your boots!!  Some of the girls didn't get the memo. Next, we went to their venue in Waterbury for their indoor wedding ceremony.

After the ceremony and during the cocktail hour, Melissa and Matt and I slipped away to a local park to take portraits of the bride and groom in the snow.  Their photos came out so great!!  They had a timeless Norman Rockwell feel to them.  Melissa looked so great in here white stole.  I called here the snow queen.  Matt looked so dapper in double breasted suit and wool cap.

We headed back to the their reception for a warm and fun filled evening of dances, dinner, toasts, celebration and crazy dance moves.  What a wonderful celebration of an awesome couple.
