Hartford City Hall, Hartford, Connecticut

Pond House Cafe, West Hartford, Connecticut


We started off the wedding day with getting ready (groom prep) photos at a local hotel.  This is often a good place to  do your getting ready photos as you are not restricted in time as you often are at a venue.  Damian opened a wonderful gift from Sandra as part of the getting ready photos.  Photos of the groomsmen and family members were included as well. 

Next were the getting ready photos (bride prep) of Sandra and her bridesmaids.  Photos included her sister and mother and bridesmaids. Since it was winter and the weather for portraits can be unpredictable I helped them reserve a block of time at Hartford City Hall for their first look and photos of the bridal party and family photos. 

With their portraits finished we went to The Pond House Cafe in West Hartford for their wedding ceremony and reception.
The Pond House Cafe was decorated with all the Christmas  trees and lights and it transformed the venue into a winter wonderland.  DJ Dave, Spin Doctor Entertainment brought a snow machine for their first dance to further enhance the mood and scene. It was a wonderful wedding celebration of joy and love.

Video can be a great compliment to your wedding photos.  I work with a fantastic team of videographers in all different price ranges to make it easy to add a videographer to your wedding day. Special thanks to David Ladin of RI Video Pro for creating this video.
