A Connecticut State Park Wedding by Sarah Tew Photography

Our next lovely wedding comes to us from Sarah Tew Photography. This Connecticut state park is the perfect location for an east coast affair. Greenery + ocean = too good to be true, but that is the east coast for you. Enjoy the beautiful scenery, stunning decor, oh yes…and adorable couple.

From the photographer…

My thoughts on this wedding can be summed up in one word: wow! It is rare that we photographers get so much punch packed into one location– this park was gorgeous– it featured a mansion for the getting ready and cocktail/reception, a sweet little ampitheatre for the ceremony, and the options for portraits were almost overwhelming! To make things even better Jesse & Jessica had a super sweet wedding that involved almost no “outside” vendors– in other words, everyone involved with their wedding (except the venue/caterer) was someone they knew personally! Jesse’s brother Kerk played the music for their ceremony, and their DJ, Christopher Torres, was a friend. The cake was made by the bride’s Grandfather, and the invitations were designed by Jessica’s sister (and maid of honor) Laura. Even I was an old friend of Jesse’s from Wesleyan. To top it all off, Jesse arranged to serenade his bride during the reception with an Al Green cover with his brothers performing as his backup band. So you can imagine with this DIY spirit what a warm-feeling celebration it was. For centerpieces they just put a white orchid plant with pretty little handmade paper covers over the pots (lacy looking, awesome idea) on each table surrounded by some little sand dollars and glass pebbles. Very simple but pretty, and guests enjoyed taking an orchid home!
