This past weekend, Chrissy and Sergio promised their lives to each other in the most sweet and intimate ceremony. Their big reception aka dance party is planned for the beach next year, but the quaint Lace Factory was the perfect place to start this chapter as husband and wife.
Okay, let me just get to the good stuff. Being the only photographer for these intimate weddings, I get to see it all! I arrived at the groom’s hotel and he had all the emotions. Sergio met Chrissy back in college and they have been inseparable ever since. They have two amazing dogs together and are the sweetest couple. If I’ve ever seen a guy head over heels for a woman, it is Sergio. Obviously Chrissy is beautiful and once you get to know her she is kind, smart, strong and so fun to be around. Chrissy makes everyone feel like they are instant friends with her! Sergio is equally as wonderful. The first thing he did was offer me a drink on his wedding day! Always thinking of others first. When he wasn’t thinking of everyone else during the getting ready, he was a ball of nerves! I will save the photos of Sergio reading his letter from Chrissy for their big reveal at the studio! It was that sweet.
Chrissy was calm and radiant when I arrived at her adorable air B and B.. She had everything planned down to the last detail and was enjoying her dear friend doing her hair and makeup. There is nothing like having your friends by your side on your special day! After much deliberation, she decided to wear her chosen wedding dress instead of an elopement dress. It was absolutely stunning and the lace fit her Lace Factory Venue so perfectly.
Their intimate ceremony took place at The Lace Factory in Deep River, Connecticut. It was everything a ceremony should be. They each wrote their own vows that were so personal that they read under twinkle lights inside the converted lace factory. They had a beautiful dinner with their family under a glowing tent on one of the last warm September evenings. These are the days that we live for. The days that your plans have changed to give you an even more perfect reality because it the perfection is in the unexpected. These two and their love deserved than a perfect day, but a perfectly enjoyed one. They did just that! Congratulations Chrissy and Sergio, it was an honor to be your photographer!
