Farmington club wedding
I arrived at the Farmington Inn with my fingers secretly crossed, a bit of a nervous wreck. The weatherman had been calling for rain all week and the skies were not looking very promising on that September Saturday morning. I walked into Kelly’s room and could instantly sense that, rain or shine, she was so peacefully excited to be marrying her best friend later that day. And, really, that’s all that mattered. A couple hours later I saw David shortly before the ceremony started. He said nothing about the storm clouds forming overhead, the fact that the ceremony was under the open sky, or that it could downpour at any moment. All he wanted to know was how she was. I told her that she looked absolutely beautiful to which he replied “Of course she does”. He was so peacefully excited because, rain or shine, he was about to marry his best friend. And, really, that’s all that mattered to him. As she made her way down the aisle towards him the clouds broke open and for 30 minutes heaven poured it’s gorgeous light upon David and Kelly as they promised forever to each other. Their family and friends both cried and laughed as they danced the night away in each others arms, surrounded by the people they love the most. And really, that’s all that mattered.
David and Kelly, thanks for throwing an incredible party at the Farmington Club but, more importantly, thanks for just being who you are. I adore the two of you and I was so honored to photograph your wedding day.
Kelly chose a dazzling number by La Sposa of Pronovias for her wedding dress. It was all things classy and elegant with a bit of modern flair, which fit her personality perfectly.David and Kelley’s wedding colors were a cobalt blue and coral so I thought it was incredibly fitting that the Farmington Inn had this classy chair with cobalt blue stripes.I always get giddy when I show up on a wedding day and see a pair of Badgley Mischka’s waiting for me to give them their 5 minutes of fame. Terri Voget of A Victorian garden did a fantastic job with all the flowers for David and Kelly’s wedding.Kelly’s mom and sister helped her few on two special bracelets. Oh, dear Kelly, you are absolutely flawless!Clare from Beauty Entourage in Newington was on hand to make Kelly’s hair look absolutely fabulous and I’d say she definitely did her job well!Candice from Naomi’s Salon did the makeup for all the important ladies of the day. Anytime I walk in and see one of Naomi’s girls, I breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that they always do a fabulous job!Kelly’s Bridesmaids were absolutely gorgeous in their classy Ann Taylor dresses and handmade jewelry from Etsy.David bought Kelly a special bracelet which she was both surprised and delighted by.Kelly, between you and I, I think you should consider being a professional bride. You know, since it’s obviously a promising career. 😉While Rachel and I stayed back with the girls, my main man headed over to hang out with the guys. Every time Adam joins me for a wedding, I’m always impressed with how he photographs things so much differently than me. Makes me think he may have a thing or two to teach me. I love when a bride gets their groom an old fashioned pocket watch. Such a timeless and classy piece!Does it get cuter than this? I think not.I know I’ve said this before but I absolutely love when clients have a string quartet at their wedding during the ceremony and/or cocktail hour. It adds a whole other level of class and elegance to the wedding.The Farmington Club has a beautiful pergola and lawn area under which clients can get married. With a view of the Hublien Tower off in the distance, and perfectly manicured lawns, I’d say that the Farmington Club is a pretty awesome place to have a wedding.Kelly was escorted down the aisle of the Farmington Club Pergola area by both of her dads which was very special.As those heaven’s opened up, the light at the Farmington Club became absolutely divine. And just in time to grab some gorgeous wedding portraits around the grounds of the Farmington Club
