Jackie & Stefan's Wedding Day at Eolia Mansion at Harkness Park | CT Shoreline Wedding Photographer

wedding ceremony at Eolia mansion

Jackie and Stefan’s late summer wedding day at Eolia Mansion located at Harkness Memorial State Park was intimate and full of love.

The stunning landscape of the Eolia Mansion garden was the perfect setting for Jackie and Stefan’s wedding ceremony. Located on the Connecticut shoreline, the scenery of Harkness Park makes for a picture perfect wedding venue.

Jackie and Stefan worked with me to create a wedding timeline that allowed them lots of time to be present with their friends and family during cocktail hour. Taking the time to slow down and soak up time with your loved ones is always something I always encourage my wedding couples to think about when we are creating a wedding day timeline.

From the simple and elegant wedding cake to the handmade doughnut tower and a reception filled with glow sticks and tons of dancing, Jackie and Stefan’s wedding day was filled with personal and unique touches and a crazy amount of love.

Keri and Steven's Intimate Wedding at Smith College | Northampton, MA

candid wedding photography ct

An intimate wedding surrounded by the closet of friends and loving family at Smith College located in Northampton Massachusetts.

The morning of Keri and Steven’s wedding was a total wash out. The heavy rain continued through their ceremony right up until they said “I do.” Not only did the rain come to an end just as their ceremony was ending, but the clouds moved away leaving us with the clearest blue sky for the rest of the evening.

Smith College Conference Center is located right near the gardens and green house which provided a gorgeous back drop to our bride and groom portraits. We spent time exploring the property while these two soaked up their time together.

And then it was time to party! Air guitar anyone?

Keri and Steven’s entire wedding day was full of laughs, positive vibes even through the storm, and over flowing with love!

Sam and Maria | Avon Old Farms Hotel Wedding in Avon, CT

Beautiful Summer Wedding at Avon Old Farms Hotel in Avon, Connecticut


Maria and Sam’s paths first crossed in a freshman dormitory at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland in 2006. The two hit the ground running. Maria spent hours pouring over her biology and chemistry textbooks and studying late into the night. Sam took up the sport of rugby, joined the jazz band, and developed an affinity for Baltimore’s finest National Bohemian beer. In between their busy schedules, they found themselves chatting in the dorm hallways late at night on numerous occasions. When they returned from winter break in January, Sam was extremely “disappointed” to hear that Maria and her boyfriend in Brazil were no longer together. Soon enough, they found themselves growing fond of each other, and by the time May rolled around, Sam was no longer disappointed. They kept in touch over the phone that summer and the distance only brought them closer. They returned in the fall, and became inseparable over the next 3 years.

Upon graduating in 2010, the couple found themselves at a crossroads. Maria had been accepted to medical school in Virginia, and Sam had taken a job in Connecticut. They decided to stick things out. Though hundreds of a miles apart, they found a way to stay strong. There were many skype calls and weekend plane and train trips. Maria even made the 10 hour trip by car during her vacations, summoning the power provided by Harry Potter audio books and podcasts. When it came time for Maria to apply for a residency, they knew that they no longer wanted to live apart. Maria would need to apply for a work Visa which had the potential to make things very difficult for her application process. There was no doubt in Sam’s mind that Maria was the one for him, so over a routine skype session, he romantically suggested, “Why don’t we just get married?!” The two were wed in a small ceremony in July of 2013.

In June of 2014, Maria began her residency in Connecticut and after 4 long years apart, they would finally be able to share a home together in West Hartford, Ct. That home became even more complete less than a year later when Maria suggested they visit the CT humane society on a rainy day in March, “just to look”. Less than 24 hours later, Sam was driving home with a 3 month old pitbull in the backseat. Despite the destruction of many shoes, mail, and furniture, Olive, as they named her, has been the most wonderful addition.

Most recently, they have learned that they will be moving on to a new phase of their lives. Maria will begin a fellowship in reproductive medicine at Johns Hopkins starting in July of 2018, and so they’ll be heading back to Baltimore where it all began.

It is needless to say that the last 10 years have been quite an adventure. Sam and Maria are so thankful for the love and support they’ve received throughout this journey, from all of their family and friends. They are thrilled that they finally have the opportunity to celebrate their love for each other in the presence of all of those who mean the most to them on June 2nd, 2018.
