Erin & Kevin : Sharon CT

Sharon -CT -wedding Erin & Kevin were married September 16, in a beautiful field, surrounded by immediate family and a few close friends. After being long time friends, and then a couple, they got engaged last year, and set the date for this late summer. Little did they know Erin would already be 7 months pregnant. Erin Told me she had picked out her BHLDN wedding dress a year ago, and with a few tiny adjustments, she was able to wear the dress on her wedding day. The flowers, a beautiful sea of pale pink and greens, went perfectly with the blush pink gown. Kevin’s father, dressed in a kilt, played the bagpipes, as they proceeded into the field. It brought tears to my eyes. In order to understand the brilliance and love between these two, you would have to read this lovely inquiry I got, several weeks before the wedding date. As I told Erin, she had me at “hello”

Dear Kate,

We are doing a schedule inquiry for saturday sept 16 for a wedding… Yep in a few weeks.
The location is Sharon CT and The Hopkins Inn overlooking Lake Waramaug.

If you are available… Here is a little about us and what we are looking for.

Kevin and I are having an untraditional wedding. We are basically eloping. 

There will be a total of 10 people including us.


We want to have the ceremony around 3pm overlooking the hudson halley; there is a great spot in Sharon where the painters always set up the easels and get to work. It will be about a 30 minute ceremony… plus a little time for some photos. 

After that, for sunset, we are going to have dinner at The Hopkins Inn . Dinner will be at like 5:30.
We were thinking of starting at noonish at the house with some prep stuff and us hanging out. The house is also in Sharon CT.

I’ll be your 7mo pregnant bride, in a flowy simple gown… my father in law will likely be in a kilt, my sister in law will have the cutest chubby little boy smiling up a storm, and Belinda, a close friend, who happens to be a world famous slight of hand magician, will be officiating. So basically 10 of the most interesting cool people ever. 


I guarantee we will be a fun, loving, kind group.


What I am looking for from a photographer is to capture the intimacy while also allowing for the location to resonate through. We feel very at home in New England and we absolutely love the people we are sharing this with. We want the images to show how unfussy we are… To embrace the wine spills and the hair blowing awkwardly in the breeze. And we want a photographer who can do the same.

After all of that… I guess the first question is… What are you doing saturday september 16?

DONE! Who wouldn’t want to photograph this sweet couple?!

KEVIN & ERIN-Sharon CT

Erin & Kevin-weddingErin & Kevin WeddingErin & Kevin-marriedBefore the ceremony, it began to pour as we drove to Millerton NY, where the couple wanted to take pictures, but we were prepared with our clear matching plastic umbrellas (how cute was that idea). I loved that they wanted pictures of themselves, and the first look to be in and around the charming town of Millerton NY.

Cassie & Garrett: Angevine Christmas Tree Farm

When I was asked by Eileen Smith if I was available to photograph her eldest daughter, Cassie’s wedding to her longtime college sweetheart, Garrett, I was excited. You see Eileen Smith is a wedding planner whom I have worked with on numerous weddings, and over the years we have gotten to know one another. She’s lovely to work with, but I knew this would be special because she was planning her own daughter’s wedding.

 

The wedding was held at Angevine Christmas tree farm in Warren, CT.  Eileen spent her childhood picking out her tree there while she was growing up, and continued the tradition with her own children. The families have known one another for over 40 years. It seemed like a natural spot for a beautiful wedding. Sentimental and stunning location= perfection. Not only was the day special on its own; but both Cassie & Garrett’s parents were married on the same date.

 

When I say that this was a special wedding, I mean it in many ways. It was joyful, full of a lot of laughing, family traditions, and celebrating the love of these two-amazing people; Cassie & Garrett. Please see the full vendor list below-and be sure to take a peek at the wedding video that Cassie’s cousin, Pete made for them. (link at bottom of page).

family session in Roxbury

I was excited to meet this new family, in Roxbury a few weeks ago. Mom’s name is Kate, so I figured she must be cool:) . As soon as I knocked on the door, I was greeted by the adorable 2 and a half year old , Cecelia. I instantly connected with this little girl. She is chatty, and hilarious, and loved having her picture taken. Honestly, it was one of the most fun family shoots I have ever had! Mom , Kate, is expecting another little girl in December. I’m pretty hopeful I will get to meet them again!

It was a large wedding, with a lot of their friends from college, and some fun traditions were added into the wedding.  Danielle executed a beautiful design for her wedding, which she carefully planned out with the assistance of her wedding planner, Lea Anne.

The two met in college, and have been together ever since. Both are sweet, and kind, and smiled from ear to ear the entire night. There were so many lovely toasts from friends and family, and a lot of laughing and dancing. Before the wedding day the two of them buried a bottle of whisky, as an old Southern tradition (or superstition) says if you burry a bottle of whiskey at the site of your wedding the weather will be good! IT worked, as you can see we had an amazing orange and red sunset!  The menu was impeccable with food from On The Mark events; including a wood fired pizza oven for appetizers! A big thank you to everyone who worked on this beautiful shoreline wedding! On The Marc Events, Vivid Events, The Hal Prince Band, Larissa Lake  (makeup and hair) and without the lovely assistance of Lea Anne and of course  The Inn at Longshore for making it all happen so seamlessly, and for allowing us a little ride in the golf cart after the ceremony!

Congratulations Ned & Daniele!I loved getting to know you both

The setting was the Bellamy Ferridy house and garden, right here in Bethlehem, CT.  I am thrilled to share some of my favorites (though it was hard to choose) with everyone today. I am especially thankful to Jenn Tansley of Soirées & Revelry for organizing it all and bringing a great bunch of people together!

I also shot Many of these in film, which I love, it just brings a nostalgic feeling to the images, which I think suites the setting!

family session in Washington, CT

little girl on stone wall-KUPJust a quick post to share a few family pictures from a few days ago…I love doing family sessions in the country here in Litchfield County. There are so many fun locations, aside from the barns, there are the orchards, and Steep Rock, and each place has its own special feeling and meaning to each family. The colors they chose are so sweet with this old barn as a backdrop, don’t you think?

I have so many cute pictures to share that I will try and get back here to the journal soon. Wedding pictures from a stunning beachside wedding, and a few more family sessions coming soon!

Have a lovely weekend,

xx-Kate
