Hello! I thought I would update my personal vendor recommendations for the 2017 season. The common thread is excellent service and gorgeous taste. As for the food and catering, I am very picky. I eat and taste the food at each wedding:). Note most of these caterers offer vegan and vegetarian as well. There are so many amazing vendors out there! My best advice is to make sure you like their style taste the food, e Some florists love to use native and farm-grown flowers, some caterers use local farm produce, etc.. Ask questions, and follow on Instagram to see what they do (check out who I follow). Some are local to Litchfield County, CT. and others serve all of New England.
Local venues: South Farms, Candlelight Farms, The Mayflower Grace, Winvian. Vineyards: Chamard, Hopkins, Jonathan Edwards, Saltwater Farms, Lyman orchards. The Barns at Wesleyan hills, The Lace Factory, and Wadsworth Mansion to name a few. There are a ton more I have worked at and love, I couldn’t possibly list them all. I love outdoor, beautiful settings of all kinds and have photographed weddings and receptions at most of the yacht clubs and country clubs around Connecticut. Mystic, Stonington, Newport, and many Rhode Island locations are also a favorite travel for me.
