This stormy but beautiful CT wedding day began in Trumbull, where bride Nicole got ready with her bridesmaids and family. Nicole was nervous but excited as her mother and bridesmaids zipped her into her dress and buttoned the many buttons of the lace backed gown. After a first look with dad that left us all teary-eyed, the group headed to the Calvary Church in Trumbull, where an anxious Geoff awaited his future wife. This ceremony was particularly special, as Geoff’s father, who is a minister, would be leading the ceremony! Geoff was all smiles (and a few tears!) as Nicole was escorted down the aisle by her father to be given away. A sweet and personal ceremony followed, with special segments incorporating Geoff’s own experience as a minister, as well as the wedding’s nautical theme. The couple sealed their marriage with a kiss and a playful bubble sendoff. The cocktail hour and reception followed at Lounsbury House, a stunning historic mansion in Ridgefield CT. The Lounsbury’s House’s back courtyard provided the perfect backdrop for formal photos…until the rain began! Family photos continues on the Lounsbury House’s gorgeous wrap around porch, and the rains provided much a needed drop in temperature and breeze for the bride and groom. CNT Entertainment got the reception going with a sweet blessing and speech by the best man, and an amazing re-write of the “Fresh Prince” theme-song performed by the two maids of honor. Lounsbury House’s main hall made a perfect dance floor for this boisterous and fun group as CNT Entertainment rocked the house with dance worthy tunes. We even took advantage of the rolling thunderstorms by slipping out for a few night shots in the rain! Best wishes to this sweet couple!
Geoff and I reached out to many photographers before we spoke to Caitlin. Once we met with her we knew the decision was easy. Her personality and pictures spoke for themselves. Caitlin was so helpful on our wedding day and she went above and beyond to help make our day special. She came to our house to get pictures of the bridesmaids getting ready. When it was time to pin on the boutonnières none of us knew how to do it so Caitlin offered to do all of them. During our ceremony, Geoff and I never "saw" Caitlin. She was never in a spot that was distracting and she was never blocking anyone's view of what was going on which was so nice. For our bubble exit, Caitlin explained exactly what she wanted us to do before we got outside. She even fixed my veil for me since it was falling out after our receiving line. There was a lot of traffic on our wedding day so everyone was at least 20 minutes late to the reception and the rain clouds were rolling in. From the moment we stepped out of the limo, Caitlin was ready to take pictures. When the rain started, she was quick on her feet and found creative places to take pictures. The great thing about Caitlin is her directions are so clear. I am not very comfortable in front of the camera, but Caitlin made me feel comfortable and that comes across in the pictures. We have had so many people from our wedding comment about how great Caitlin was and we couldn't agree more! Hiring Caitlin for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. We are very happy with our engagement photo shoot and the pictures from our wedding day! We can't say enough about how great Caitlin is!
Our favorite moment was getting to see our pictures. Caitlin was so quick to get us our pictures and we got to see things that we didn't see/ notice on our wedding day (especially the dancing pictures!) We can't stop looking at them!
