It’s been a while. Needless to say I have been busy the last eight weeks. Summer has nearly slipped away, I have a new website, and, well, no blog posts. Long story, but when I switched over to a new platform I lost every single blog post from 2005 on. So I am starting fresh, and why not? This year has been so chaotic and uncertain why not start new. I’d love to start off with a few highlights from the last eight weeks, which eventually I hope to share more of. There have been good things that have come out of this pandemic, and I am not going to try and make it seem like it’s been easy. But the silver lining is that I realize how much I have really enjoyed these small backyard weddings and elopements. Its totally different, yes, but its so much more down-to-earth, and certainly so much more about the love, and the commitment more than anything else. This July wedding in Roxbury, CT was just beyond happy. I actually cried tears of joy. When Sarah and Jamie contacted me in early January of last year about their big wedding at Candlewood farms inn I was thrilled. And we had a lovely engagement session last October. And then came the pandemic, and well, they waited and waited to see how it would play out. When the final decision came the bottom line was, they wanted to be married, no matter what. So they quickly planned the most elegant backyard micro-wedding and left out nothing (except the guest list). Immediate family only, and two good friends who stood in as Best man and Maid of Honor, and their parents. Next year they will have that big celebration with all of their friends and family, and celebrate their one year anniversary. Here are some images from the day! I hope you enjoy them.
