Hartford Club Wedding

A Hartford Club Wedding was the perfect end to our 2017! Everyone has seen Sara & Jason before from their Palace Theater Engagement Shoot! Well, without further ado here is their wedding!

Sara is the most fun, energetic, positive, and genuinely excited person we have met. Her personality is truly one of a kind. From the very start of the day as Sara lead us over to where all her detail items were gathered she could barely contain her excitement as she explained every item and its unique importance and value. As Dominique got right to work on her detail photos Brian was off to see the groom and his groomsmen.

The only suitable counterpart for as special of a person as Sara would have to be Jason. His beaming smile, contagious laugh, and silly personality are exactly the match for Sara’s. Although their getting ready photos were apart from each other they have a continuity in the energy and eagerness in both. A few happy tears were shed during her first look with her dad and after Sara’s after her expression is priceless! The utmost joy as her days’ events were unfolding perfectly. She then shared a quiet moment with her parents in remembrance of her brother as they held a handmade beaded bracelet he had given her. A piece of him she so carefully kept and needed with her on her special day.

The soft natural light of the beautiful winter day outside along with Sara’s glowing bridal beauty made for stunning portraits. Then before we were off to the Hartford Club Sara, her mom “Reetz”, and her dad shared a toast. A tradition started by her grandmother and Reetz on her wedding day.

Upon getting to the Hartford Club we were greeted by the amazing Megan Fanion (However, not for much longer as we just photographed her wedding this past Saturday!) that got us all settled in and ready for first look. Oh and of course made a cameo in a cute snapshot with Sara in the beautiful Yacht Room. The first look was emotionally charged! Their suspense and excitement from the morning was released with the most amazing of expressions from both the bride and groom. I mean it is impossible to look at those photos and not smile!

Once Sara & Jason ‘s private moment together was complete… enter wedding party & family for more love, hugs, kisses, and excitement. Also the finishing touches to the wedding look… the bouquets and the boutonnieres! That arrived just in time for the formal wedding party and family photos. As always, with prior planning and communication we were able to sail through those set ups and photos! Next… off to the church & time to get married!

Once at the church the ceremony unfolded beautifully. As we had seen all day the reactions and candids on this couple are truly amazing! That recessional candid is like no other we have seen before! Our signature group shot wrapped up the events at the gorgeous St Thomas the Apostle Church in West Hartford, CT.

Once back at The Hartford Club the guests mingled and enjoyed delicious food & drinks and we slipped away to the back patios dazzling with string lights for some nighttime portraits of the newlyweds and their wedding party! Then it was off to the cigar lounge for some more fun photos with dramatic and theatrical off camera lighting. (Reminiscent of the lovely couple’s engagement shoot of course!) A stunning room set up was the perfect backdrop for the sensational introductions, first dance, toasts, and parent dances. We just loved the balance of romance and playfulness involved in their cake cutting!

Then the party was on. With drinks flowing, great music by the Bride & Groom’s personal friend and DJ, and a lively group of guests the night was exhilarating! A “conga-line” led guests into the open cigar lounge and around the dance floor. The evening concluded with a tradition of the groom and his friends singing their favorite song with gusto! What a perfect wedding!
