Michelle and Erik's wedding took on a nature inspired theme and Tunxis Country Club was the perfect match for their wedding in the pine trees that surround the venue. Their wedding took place in October so you will notice the autumn inspired colors in the flowers and bridesmaid's dresses. Their wedding reception took on many autumn inspired decor including a pie bar and decorations as you will see. So let's start off the wedding day with getting ready photos of Erik and his groomsmen getting ready at a nearby Farmington, Hotel Their cinnamon colored ties complimented the bridesmaids cinnamon colored dresses as you will see later.
I went next to the bridal suite at the Tunix Country Club for getting ready photos of Michelle and her bridesmaids. Michelle's champagne colored dress and lace texture fit in so perfect for her wedding theme. Her mom and sister were there to help with the getting ready photos.
After their getting ready photos, I photographed their first look. The fall colors were just starting to come out and added beautiful touches of colors to many of their photos. After their first look I did portraits of Michelle and Erik followed by bridal party and family photos. We were able to have all these completed before the ceremony which provided a nice relaxed morning with lots of photos.
Next came their wedding ceremony in the pavilion at Tunxis. The venue staff opened the sides of the pavilion so that half the ceremony was outside and the other half indoors. This made for a warmer ceremony experience for the guests at the same time taking advantage of the beautiful ceremony setting in the forest which the bride groom and wedding party could be under.
We took a little time at the beginning of the cocktail hour to get a few more photos of the bride, groom and bridal party in the pine trees. Michelle's bridesmaid's looked so great with cinnamon dresses and white stoles. The flowers were incredible by the Harwington Florist. Simply incredible!!
Next came their wonderful reception in the pavilion. It started off their first dance followed by toasts then dinner and dancing. They had a wonderful pie bar with every type of imaginable pie. Following that was a parent dance with Michelle and her dad followed by a shoe game and lots of great time on the dance floor. We took a little time to do outdoor night photos which was fun too.
It was a fantastic wedding day. I wanted to thank Michelle for her smile, laughs and love which made the day so special. Thanks to Erik for being supportive all day. To a wonderful wedding party and family and special thanks to the vendors below for an outstanding job.
