Branford House Wedding

What a perfect mid September day for a Branford House wedding! The sun was shining and there was a light breeze floating through the air – perfect weather for a wedding down by the water! You all remember Kelly & Brett from their Harkness Park Engagement Session right? And of course who could forget their lovable pooch Diesel?! Well time has flown by… as it tends to do and believe it or not this perfect September day was their wedding day!

We were greeted by Kelly’s smiling face as soon as we arrived at the hotel! After some details of all Kelly’s glamorous wedding day items it was time for her to slip into her beautiful gown. With some help from her mom she was ready in no time! We snapped away gorgeous portrait after gorgeous portrait – an easy task with such a radiant bride! Then it was time to go hang with the guys! There was no lack of energy from these boys. The boys were…well being boys – watching football and hanging out. Then it was a team effort when everyone started getting ready! After it was time for first look!

We found a picturesque spot along the water and set Brett into place. Kelly eagerly made her may toward him and tapped his shoulder… And… WOW! Look at those reactions! Truly an amazing first look between these two. Their excitement was contagious and so fun to watch. After they shared a loving embrace, Kelly showed off her wedding dress with a twirl, they had a heartfelt kiss and they were off hand in hand to see their friends and family. After some fun with the ladies and gentlemen of their wedding party, we did some formal family photos, and then portraits of the lovely couple. Then it was time to get married!

We just love how Kelly made her entrance into the ceremony with the addition of a veil! What an extra special detail to surprise her groom with! Their ceremony was lovely it was administered by their friend Joe. They also had special readings from family members and heartfelt vows to each other! After their pronouncement and kiss they excitedly made their way back down the aisle as husband and wife!

Cocktail hour was a blast! Since we did all our formal photos before ceremony Kelly & Brett got to mingle and enjoy their cocktail hour with all their guests! Then it was introductions and wow what a lively and creative group they had! Their first dance was just like them – adorable, touching, and so much fun. Brett is one talented dancer! Did you all see his twirl? Amazing! What a finale with a dip and a loving kiss! After some phenomenal speeches it was time for dinner. In keeping with the coastal theme they had a surf and turf meal with “Claws to Celebrate” – so creative! 

With the sky aglow there was no way we could pass up some sunset portraits of the bride and groom! Back in the tent, the bride shared a dance with her dad followed by the groom with his mom. After it was time for Kelly & Brett to cut their beautiful wedding cake! In true Kelly fashion she did the sweetest job of getting a tiny drop of frosting on the Brett’s face. Then the dance floor was open to their rowdy guests who were having an amazing time out there!

Congratulations to the newlyweds! What a perfect day! We thank you for letting us capture it for you and wish you all the love and happiness in your future together!
