It’s official – Victoria and AJ are married! Their Roundhouse Beacon wedding was a dream come true, complete with gorgeous scenery, pretty pastels with touches of greenery, and lots of laughter and love between all of their family and friends!

The day began at the Roundhouse Hotel, with Victoria surrounded by her bridesmaids and family. Victoria excitedly prepared to marry AJ, the love of her life. She slipped on her breathtaking Pronovias gown and her mother and sister helped button up the intricate lace back. Victoria’s bridesmaids gasped when she entered the room. They were all so thrilled to see the sweet and stunning bride!

The Roundhouse Beacon wedding grounds served as the perfect backdrop for the couple’s wedding portraits! The first look with Victoria and AJ was so romantic by the waterfall!  The train of Victoria’s dress flowed softly, just like the water over the rocks. The mountains in the background were beautiful and there were fresh wildflowers all around.

Guests headed to the chapel to watch the beautiful couple officially become husband and wife! Victoria’s nephews served as the ring bearers, and Hudson pulling his brother Cooper down the aisle was absolutely ADORABLE! Victoria and AJ exchanged rings and vows, and celebrated their forever love with a perfect first kiss before exiting the church through a shower of bubbles!

Custom cocktails and majestic views made for an incredible cocktail hour. This perfectly rustic Roundhouse Beacon wedding was made even more beautiful by the pastel blooms, strands of greenery, bright candles, and charming lanterns. Joy filled the air as Victoria and AJ’s family and friends celebrated the happy couple. The signature drinks and amazing band kept friends and family on the dance floor all night long! The whole crowd even broke into a giant conga line, led by the bride herself!

Victoria and AJ snuck away for a few sweet moments towards the end of the night, posing for a few last portraits against the velvet, star-filled sky. Their love shone brightly in their smiles and eyes as they held each other, so thrilled to be sharing these special memories as husband and wife.

It’s my pleasure to share some of my favorite moments from Victoria and AJ’s beautiful Roundhouse Beacon wedding! It was a honor to capture the love and laughter between you, your family, and your friends. I wish you lots of joy in your journey as newlyweds!

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!

Destination wedding photographer, Amy Rizzuto of Amy Rizzuto Photography, captures a couple's joy at their Charleston wedding at The Mills House

Olivia + Joe are MARRIED!!! Their Charleston wedding was timeless, elegant, and filled to the brim with Southern charm. From their first look down a cobblestone street, to the last hugs exchanged with proud parents before hopping in the getaway car, Olivia and Joe were all smiles all day! Olivia shared with me in the morning that she just knew this was going to be the best day of their lives, and it truly was!

The couple’s love for each other shone through in so many details, right down to Olivia’s gorgeous “something blue” Manolo Blahnik heels! Joe knew how much Olivia loved these shoes, so he surprised her with them the night before she went to try on wedding dresses – giving her the perfect shoes to help her find her perfect dress! The shoes worked like a charm! Olivia’s BHLDN dress was gorgeous. Her bouquet was unstructured yet classic – the perfect combination if you ask me! I loved the touch of whimsy it brought to her overall look.

The looks of pure joy on Olivia and Joe’s faces showed just how thrilled they were to be spending the rest of their lives together! Joe was in awe of his beautiful bride and the two could not stop smiling as they shared their first look. The sweet emotion continued as Joe wiped away tears of joy as Olivia met him at the end of the aisle at Summerall Chapel at The Citadel. As soon as they were pronounced husband and wife, these two literally let out a cheer!

I loved the Citadel traditions Olivia and Joe included in their day to honor his alma mater. The couple walked through a sword arch after their ceremony and posed with Joe’s fellow Citadel graduates all showing off their rings. The joy continued into the night as Olivia and Joe’s friends and family joined them on the dance floor at The Mills House and surrounded them for a sparkler exit!

It was such a pleasure to be a part of Olivia and Joe’s Charleston wedding! I am so thankful to you both for choosing me to capture your special day and wish you so much joy to come! Please enjoy some of my favorite moments from Olivia and Joe’s wedding day!

When two souls are so perfectly matched like Pamela and Brandon’s, everyday feels like a real life fairytale. This happy couple was married at Brandon’s grandparents’ private estate in Greenwich, CT, in almost the exact spot they got engaged one year before!

As Pamela’s mother helped her into her gorgeous lace and tulle Monique Lhuillier wedding dress, her bridesmaids clinked mimosa glasses in a toast to their beautiful friend. Hidden under her dress were two sweet touches – a soft pair of ballet-inspired Repetto flats, and a piece of her grandmother’s wedding dress sewn into her own gown.

Brandon waited on the grounds of his family’s estate in anticipation of his Pamela’s arrival for their first look, a little nervous but mostly excited. The moment his eyes met hers, pure joy spread across Brandon’s face as he gave her the biggest hug. They walked the estate hand-in-hand, enjoying a few quiet moments together, surrounded by the astounding art and greenery of the grounds.

The entire day felt completely personal as 100 of their closest family and friends made their way to the outdoor ceremony to celebrate. One of the best parts of the day was when Pamela and Brandon exchanged their personal vows.  Neither knew what the other was going to say, and watching Brandon get emotional as he promised to spend forever loving Pamela brought tears to my eyes!

Every little detail felt like a dream. Pamela’s love for flowers truly showed as they were EVERYWHERE!  Petals floated in the pool, single blooms adorned the escort cards, and pink blossoms seemed to spill out of the signature drinks. Friends and family celebrated the newly married couple on the dance floor with an eclectic mix of fun Spanish music, oldies, and hits. Guests were sent home with Dough Donuts, a sweet end to a simply perfect day.

I’m so excited to share some of my favorite moments from this gorgeous wedding below! Thank you for including me in your special day, Pamela and Brandon!  Your private estate wedding felt like a real life fairytale and I am so happy for you both!

The rain dotted the windows of the Essex House, making the view of Central Park across the street look almost like a painting. Despite the weather, laughter rang out as Natasha and her bridesmaids popped champagne, listened to a pretty awesome wedding mix, and slipped into their gorgeous gowns!  The day had finally arrived for Natasha to marry John and she was SO excited!  These two love birds met through a mutual friend who lived in the same building during their time in New York and they hit it off right away!

John had also been looking forward to this day for a long time.  As he was watching his beautiful bride walk down the aisle at St. Ignatius church, a huge smile spread across his face!  In front of their family and friends Natasha and John promised to spend their lives loving and supporting one another.  Afterwards, they headed to Central Park for a few fun and romantic portraits in the place where they got engaged!  As we arrived, the clouds parted and the skies cleared!  The rain earlier in the day had left the park almost entirely empty and it felt like we had the place to ourselves.  It was magical!

The rest of the evening went by in one amazing blur as Natasha and John danced the night away, toasted to a long and happy marriage, and indulged in delicious wedding cake and Momofuku cookies!  It was an honor to be a part of such an amazing celebration and I can’t wait to share a few of my favorite images below.  Congratulations again Natasha and John!  Your Central Park Boathouse wedding was truly a dream and I am so happy for you both.
