We began looking forward to Karen & Tom’s wedding when we first met them. When we photographed their Engagement Session the anticipation for the big day grew even more. To our surprise the excitement grew again in the weeks before their wedding as we bounced emails back and forth with the couple. So when we woke up on September 15th Tim and I were nearly bouncing off the walls with enthusiasm!
We weren’t disappointed. Just as we suspected Karen & Tom had a love filled celebration and Tim & I feel honored to have been able to share in their joy.
The wedding took place in the beautiful CT shoreline town of Essex, CT. Karen, her bridesmaids and family got ready for the day at her aunts house while Tom and the guys readied themselves at their room in the historic Griswold Inn. We all met up at the Town Green for Karen & Tom’s first look. It was an emotional moment as they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day.
Karen & Tom’s ceremony took place in the beautiful Essex Congregational Church at the very top of the hill in town. Karen was escorted down the aisle by her father and had the brightest smile on her face. The couple shared vows they had each written for the other which brought tears to my eyes from behind the camera.
The reception began shortly after the ceremony at the Essex Yacht Club – a beautiful backdrop for such a lovely event. The party began with some good music and everyone had a fantastic time – including Tim & I!
Once more we’d like to say congratulations to Karen & Tom! We had the most amazing time spending the day with you and your friends & family.
