Michele + Jim’s wedding at the Waterview

Michele + Jim | Wedding at the Waterview in Monroe, CT

It’s almost the weekend and I don’t know about you but I have some pretty fun and amazing summery plans for this weekend. But before I head out for my weekend festivities, I wanted to show you the awesomeness that was Michele and Jim’s wedding at the Waterview in Monroe, CT. Michele is an art teacher so she made certain to pay attention to all the creative details, which always makes my job more fun. Their bridal party was also a blast to work with, and rather hilarious.

Michele and Jim, thanks so much for inviting me to be a part of your super fun wedding and for allowing me the honor of documenting it all!

Michele chose to get ready at the Hotel Sierra in Shelton which is a super cute, chic hotel. Highly recommended! Connecticut wedding photographerMichele, you are absolutely stunning and timeless!

I loooove the background and texture of it. We won’t talk about the huge gaps in between the railroad ties on the bridge which led to a 40 foot drop below. 😉 The weatherman called for lots of rain that day but we were lucky enough to barely have a small drizzle.Connecticut wedding photographerConnecticut wedding photographerConnecticut wedding photographerThe waterview Monroe CT weddingThe waterview Monroe CT weddingConnecticut wedding photographerRight across the street from the bridge were some old abandoned factories which also provided some fun textures for the rest of their portraits.
