A whimsical Lighthouse Point Carousel wedding in East Haven, CT

Chrissy & Nick: lovers of Italian food, curling up on the couch to watch anything from scary movies to cooking shows, camping, and most of all, each other. They met while living in Boston, and we even took their engagement photos on the beach their apartment overlooked. After almost 5 years, Nick popped the question at a Christmas party, and the rest was history.

On one of the hottest Connecticut days in May, Chrissy & Nick tied the knot in front of their family & friends at Lighthouse Point in East Haven. Wearing her great grandma Clara’s bracelet and her grandmother Violet's necklace, Chrissy walked barefoot in the sand down the aisle before her uncle gave her away. Guests rode the magical carousel, danced to the setting sun, ate wood fired pizza from a pizza truck, and danced the night away. Their carnival celebration wouldn’t be complete without some late night cotton candy and favor bags filled with rock candy and salt water taffy.

Chrissy & Nick, you both are so special to me - I wish you decades of happiness, silliness, laughter, and love.

Thank you so much to all the amazing vendors!

An autumn historic Casino at Roger Williams Park wedding in Rhode Island

Six years ago, Kate & Tyrone had their first date in Davis Square going candlepin bowling. They bonded over their love for music and animals (among other things), and who couldn't resist a girl as pretty, funny, and loving as Kate? The two hit it off, and before they knew it, they had traveled together to Puerto Rico, France, the Bahamas, South Africa, Turkey and Dubai. Tyrone popped the question in a vineyard in South Africa this January. Fast forward 10 very quick months, and their big day was finally here!

Kate expressed her passion for architecture in both of the historic getting ready homes, the ornate church, and the grand Roger Williams Casino reception venue. The autumn breeze was crisp as the two tied the knot in front of their family & friends, the furthest traveling from Cape Town, South Africa to be in attendance! Kate and Tyrone danced to Home by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and Kate and her father broke it down to the famous Pulp Fiction dance. From Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle socks, to pumpkin cake, to personalized wine bottles, and of course a ride on a vintage CAROUSEL, Kate & Tyrone threw one heck of a party.

Thank you to all the amazing vendors!
