Amy & Jim’s Mill Pond Wedding | Newington, CT
September is one of my favorite months to photograph because the weather is still so nice outside, but it’s not (usually) the blaring heat of the summer. I was so honored when Amy & Jim approached me about photographing their Mill Pond wedding to be held both at the park and in their backyard. Although due to COVID-19 I have not been photographing traditional full day weddings (and indoors), this was a great opportunity to help a local couple capture the blending of their families – Amy & her 2 amazing daughters with Jim. As soon as we arrived I just loved all of the little details and hard work they put into making their backyard into a beautiful wedding reception venue. The girls were more than ready to take pictures, so we spent a short time photographing them with their Mom. Tears were already flowing, and I was honored to be a part of those special moments, including a special requested photograph inside the house with an heirloom vanity mirror. Next we headed to Mill Pond to the ceremony site to meet Jim and his family and take some additional portraits before the ceremony started. The ceremony was very special, and included a sand combining portion for all of the kids and Amy & Jim to participate in. After the big kiss (!) and some formals with the family and Amy & Jim alone, it was time to head back to the party! Amy & Jim had rented a pizza truck for the event which was amazing and had a brick oven right inside! Introductions, many heartfelt speeches, and dancing with each other and their Dad/Mom rounded out the event for me as their photographer. But what an amazing wedding day it was and I was so honored to be a part of it! Enjoy some of the many special moments from their Mill Pond wedding!
