This past weekend, Sue and Chris were married at a private estate in Connecticut. It was a beautiful sunny day, the perfect day for a wedding! When I arrived, Sue was in the back getting ready. As she put the finishing touches on her hair and make-up, I was taken by the way her mother watched quietly from around the corner, admiring how beautiful her daughter looked. Friends and family began arriving in groups, tucking in and out of the house before meandering around the gorgeous property. Chris helped escort guests to the top of the hill for the ceremony, touched to have so many loved ones come out to celebrate such a special occasion.
Happy tears sprung to many eyes as Sue’s father walked her down the aisle. As Chris and Sue shared the vows they had memorized, those close to them stood on each side. Karen was Sue’s maid of honor. They have been best friends since they were FIVE! Chris’ son CJ was officiating the ceremony and his youngest son Nicholas was the best man. Rings were exchanged under a canopy of trees and cheers rang out as Sue and Chris were pronounced husband and wife! A pond side reception followed with plenty of great conversation, a delicious dinner, and so much dancing! The golden sunset turned into a dusky blue sky just as Sue and Chris cut the cake. It was a beautiful evening filled with so much love.
If you don’t already know, Sue is my mother-in-law! It was a true honor to be asked to capture memories I know will become so special to these two. Enjoy reliving a few of my favorite moments from their private estate wedding in Connecticut below!
