I usually start off by talking about the couple but I would like to make a brief statement about their families. Both families were some of the most warm and welcoming people I have ever encountered at a wedding and Erin and Tommy are a reflection of the best of them. If you need an example of the caliber of kindness in these household’s; Erin’s mom called me Monday morning, not a text or an email, a phone call to tell me how much it meant that I was a part of a perfect wedding day for her daughter. That NEVER happens. To be clear I don’t expect it or feel I deserve it, I’m doing my job, but I damn near got teary eyed when I hung up the phone. Alright fine... I got a little teary eyed.
The wedding was on a perfect summer day with a ceremony at Erin’s former high school Laurelton Hall, officiated by a clergy member from their alma mater and a reception at The Inn at Longshore. I’ve worked a few weddings at Longshore and once the sun begins to set it’s one of the most beautiful venues in Connecticut. I’ll never get tired of shooting a happy couple with the shoreline backdrop, literally glowing from the golden sun rays. Of course it didn’t hurt that these two were so in love and easy to work with. The photographer Brooke of Brooke Alison Photo and I kept getting excited about good light to work and they never felt bothered as well briefly interrupted their wedding day partying for a few minutes to work with us; they actually got just as excited as we did!
I'll wrap this up with a congratulations to a wonderful couple and I agree with Erin's mom that it was a perfect day!
Congrats to Erin and Tommy!
