Bride and groom embrace during The Inn at Longshore wedding day in photo by Connecticut wedding photographer Amy Rizzuto

Kathryn and Brian’s gorgeous The Inn at Longshore wedding was full of love, laughter, and classic Connecticut style! The morning was such a sweet time for Kathryn and her family.  Her mom helped her into her gorgeous gown from Kleinfeld before attaching a beaded heart to the bottom. It belonged to Kathryn’s grandmother and she also wore it on her wedding day. Romance was blooming in every detail: from the perfectly pink peonies to Kathryn’s elegantly beaded Badgley Mischka heels. You could feel Kathryn’s excitement as she posed for a few photos with her lovely bridesmaids before heading to the church. Brian’s niece Mabel, the couple’s flower girl, looked up at Kathryn in awe. Little Mabel may remember this sweet moment when she is dreaming of her own wedding one day!

When the doors opened to the church, identical smiles spread across Kathryn and Brian’s faces.  They were both so excited to see one another!  The moment had finally come when they would become husband and wife. Joy spread throughout the church and the crowd cheered as Kathryn and Brian shared their first kiss as a married couple! After the beautiful ceremony, Kathryn, Brian, and their closest family and friends headed to The Inn at Longshore wedding to celebrate.

Kathryn and Brian enjoyed some time to themselves as they walked hand-in-hand throughout the gorgeous grounds. They were overjoyed to be spending these first moments together as husband and wife!  After a few fun portraits with the Adirondack chairs, Kathryn and Brian kicked off the evening with a delicious cocktail hour by the water!  Mini lobster rolls, crab cakes, and wood fire pizza were enjoyed with Kathryn and Brian’s signature cocktails.  It really was the perfect way to start the party and it was obvious how much everyone enjoyed being outdoors.

As their guests headed into the reception, they were met with more of Kathryn and Brian’s classic, romantic style: stairs draped in peonies and greenery, and crisp white linens and sparkling candles adorning the tables. The couple danced their first dance as husband and wife to the timeless “At Last” by Etta James. Soon everyone was hitting the dance floor to celebrate together!

I’m so excited to share some of my favorite photos from Kathryn and Brian’s lovely Inn at Longshore wedding! Kathryn and Brian, thank you for choosing me to capture the day you became husband and wife.  It really was unforgettable in every way. Cheers to both of you, and to your beautiful future together!
