This is Cristina & Paul, they are a vibrant and oh so gorgeous couple who were married on June 15th, 2013. I couldn’t be more ecstatic about the memories we were able to capture for them! The church in Danbury, St. Josephs, was the same church that Cristina’s parents were married in. The reception was a stunning place to photograph, I was in love with the naturally lit staircase with stunning chandelier adorning the ceiling. Also, some of my favorite images are during the dance when they brought out the specially made Paul and Cristina sunglasses and light sticks…so much fun!!! ENJOY the photographs you two!!!

This is Catherine & Zani, a couple of American and Albanian decent, blending their families and lives in marriage. Catherine and Zani took extra care making sure each part of the day was translated in both languages so all guests could understand and feel a part of the occasion. The whole event took place at the Belle Haven Country Club in Greenwich, which was picturesque and close to the heart of Catherine whose love is sailing. It was an honor to be part of such a well planned event by Erica of Ambiance Luxe Wedding Designs, I’ve known Erica for several years now, and she is always a delight to work with, and her work speaks for itself! Catherine and Zani, it was an honor to be a part of your day, and it’s been really wonderful getting to know you!
