Tara and Tim had that sweet, quiet, kindness with each other that was absolutely beautiful to watch on their wedding day. He never left her side once they said their vows, and was so considerate of her dress, flowers, and extremely high heels on the rocks at the beach. When you give us an inch, we tend to take a mile. With “could not be more perfect if you tried” wedding day weather and 2 hours for pictures before cocktail hour, we were ready to bust out all the stops.
We started pictures on Hillhouse Avenue, described, according to tradition, by both Charles Dickens and Mark Twain as “the most beautiful street in America,” in New Haven, it is one of our favorite places to take pictures. Then we headed to Guilford, the plan was to shoot at Jacob’s Beach, where we shot awesome pictures in 2010, for Nichole and Andrew’s Guilford Yacht Club Wedding. When we arrived for portraits it was a cloud of dust, heavy equipment scattered about and tarps everywhere. Yikes, Jacob’s Beach was under construction. So, not knowing Guilford entirely well, and with the limo on our tail we chose a spot very close to Jacob’s Beach, Chittenden Park. We had the place to ourselves, and you will see from the images – the scenery was not lacking a thing!
I am not sure quite how this happens, but the venues we shoot at tend to be cyclical, Eric swears it is all Google and all SEO that leads us to where we end up shooting weddings, but I am not so sure. But what I am sure of is that I need some more Guilford Yacht Club in my life and definitely some more of Marissa and her amazing staff from Jordan’s Caterers. They make our job a complete pleasure and it is so nice when the venue, caters and photographers can work together as a team to make the Bride and Groom have an exceptional wedding day.
Hugest congratulations to Tara and Tim and we wish you nothing but a lifetime of happiness!
