I’m just lucky… That’s all really………

No, seriously. I am… I’m one lucky duck…..

This past weekend, beginning Thursday and ending Sunday, I was invited to capture three different weddings. I won’t lie, three weddings can be a doozy, but three weddings can also be awesome. And the best part, wrapping up Sunday, the last wedding of the bunch, I was just as excited to get to the next wedding….. That’s one way I totally know I still love what I do.

One of those reasons, the love what I do reasons, is because every wedding, every location, is so flippin’ awesome and new.

Thursday’s wedding I got to shoot on the beach at Madison Beach Hotel…. One of the best locations for a beach wedding in Ct.

Saturday’s wedding, Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, Ct. ….. Such a stellar estate for beautifully crafted weddings.

And then Sunday I got to wrap up in Downtown Hartford at The Hartford Marriot. Offering up city streets and more for awesome shots…

At every wedding I shoot, I do what I can to stop and take in some of the awesome. From the people to the location to the details. Each wedding always unique in their own way and offering so much. And being invited in to capture their love. F’in great!!! Anyway… I’m just lucky. That on a holiday weekend, I got to hang out at the beach, visit a historic manor and find myself in the city… All in a three day stretch. Not many people get to experience all that over a three day stretch…

What can I say… I’m one lucky duck…..

And while these three images barely touch on their days… I might as well share one from each wedding!!!

Bethany and Michael’s Webb Barn Wedding – Wethersfield, Ct.

The Connecticut River Valley Inn in Glastonbury Webb Barn Wedding Photography Photos TAB PhotographicSo there’s this place, The Connecticut River Valley Inn in Glastonbury, Ct… It’s one of those places, that you should want to get ready for your wedding in! Each room, beautiful set, the property so well taken care of. From their gardens to the shed to the field out back. The owners, while patiently waiting to head out on their boat for the afternoon, so welcoming.

Webb Barn Wedding Photography Photos TAB PhotographicI’ve been there before for an actual wedding and that was great, and for Bethany and Michael’s day, showing up at the Inn for Bethany’s getting ready moments and shots, was once again, great. Seriously, if you need somewhere to get ready for your wedding and Glastonbury is an option, check this place out!!!

Okay, enough about the Inn… Let’s chat about these two and their day. Their day that was blessed with some great summer weather, sunshine galore, warm temps and plenty of love…

Webb Barn Wedding Photography Photos TAB PhotographicThey arrived to this place when Bethany did indeed say “YES!” to Michael’s proposal. That went something, yet not quite like this: “Tell me about the proposal, you say. Yes, it was beautiful and thoughtful. No, the helicopter ride was not directly involved. (It was simply a diversion.) Yes, there were hundreds of ducks flocking to feed on the path of rose petals. Yes, Michael’s parents kicked Bethany out of the car onto the curb. (The words used were, “get out.”) Yes, there was a photographer playing peekaboo from behind a tree and a future groomsman videoing from the cover of a bush. Yes, Bethany had no idea. Yes, it was ridiculously romantic and she said “Yes!””

Webb Barn Wedding Photography Photos TAB PhotographicReally, the energy that these two have is awesome. While we didn’t mean when they invited me into their day, we did get a chance to have some laughs and grab some awesome shots at their engagement session. Right from the start it was obvious that they both have such admiration for each other. And as the shoot wrapped up, it was also brought to my attention that Michael has such admiration for his Subaru Impreza…. (Come on Mike, I couldn’t let you down haha)…

Anyway, they love each other. And this year, it has been their ceremony which I have to rate as my top favorite. From friends and family providing some ceremony music, to the love that was talked about, to the tears of joy and appreciation, to Michaels face as Bethany walked down the aisle… It was surely one of my favorites!!!

Webb Barn Wedding Photography Photos TAB PhotographicThey got here in a round about long distance way. I can promise that it wasn’t easy, but that makes marriage and love worth every step. Right??? For them, the long term round about ways went something like this, you decide how much is spot on??? haha. ” Michael and Bethany met backstage during intermission of a WV Symphony concert. Michael was preparing for a big audition and trying to stay focused, but while busing to an outreach concert, Michael spotted Bethany. The next day, instead of saying “hi”, he decided to hover backstage like a smitten school boy. So when Bethany introduced herself, Michael could not believe his luck! Even better, he knew Bethany was interested when she complimented him on the sparkly thread that ran through his tux shirt. That evening, Michael stalked Bethany on Facebook and asked her to watch a movie. After 38 seconds, the computer screen was shut and they spent the next three hours talking about music, performing, Jesus, family, travel, past, future- basically everything under the sun. Webb Barn Wedding Photography Photos TAB PhotographicThe following day, Michael asked Bethany if he could give her a ride back to Pittsburgh. (Bethany had fortuitously caught a ride from Pittsburgh to WV due to car troubles and Michael had fortuitously scheduled a lesson in Pittsburgh for the next day.) Before making it back, they made a pit stop for dinner at Qdoba where Bethany began to realize that she was on a date. Michael subsequently had this same realization when instead of sitting across from him in a large booth, she chose to sit next to him. Michael recalls that she was inches from his face. Not wanting to give up the opportunity of a three hour car ride with Bethany, Michael drove to Ohio and endured his first full length Handel’s Messiah featuring his future wife on section second violin. Upon arriving home, a mortified Bethany remembered that she had “accidentally” left her phone in Michael’s car. Michael was more than happy to return it in exchange for a “real” hug.
The next day Bethany told Michael that she couldn’t have lunch with him, because she was sick. With plans to investigate if she truly was sick, Michael asked if he could stop by before leaving town. After four more hours of talking, Michael embarked on his nine hour journey to Boston. The next few weeks they texted non- stop and Bethany’s family became suspicious that Christmas after witnessing Bethany’s new phone habits. Soon after, Michael came to Pittsburgh for the weekend to get to know Bethany better. Their next date was two weeks in the Dominican Republic where they worked at a festival together. Webb Barn Wedding Photography Photos TAB PhotographicIt was here, after many breakfast, lunch and dinner dates, and much hand holding and time spent sunning themselves, that they decided to commit to each other and see if marriage could be in the cards. Since then, the distance lovebirds have accrued a vast store of airline miles and they are well on their way to being in all 50 states together.”

It’s pretty right on. Now, while their story will grow, they do have some issues from the wedding they have to deal with. One, they seemed to have lost the top tier of their cake… If you see it, please contact me and we can mail it back to them… Two, Bethany’s father ripped the bumper off Michaels beloved car on the way to the ceremony… (Okay okay, that may not have happened but I tried to make Michael believe that it did…) Anyway…. While these two are still on their honeymoon in Greece, they will continue their adventure through life with love and god… I’m sure they will continue to tackle every day with their whole heart as they did every photo and I honestly wish them only the best as their incredible love guides them through each day, adventure and year…..

So for now, enjoy the photos below (from the getting ready, to first look with dad, to not first look – first look with the bride and groom, to their awesome ceremony, the bridal party, their bridal portraits to their awesome reception… Enjoy them!) , leave them some love in the comments and know that TAB Photographic captures weddings across the country and around the world working with couples needs, dreams and beliefs…

Meagan and Waleed’s Saint Clements Castle Marina Wedding

Port Hampton Marina at Saint Clements Castle Wedding Photography Photos TAB Photographic Ct. When an engagement session goes like theirs did (which can be seen ::here:: ), you know their wedding will be just as awesome…

Then, you get a text from a VERY concerned bride….. Her venue burned down and she was on the hunt for a new location. She was lucky enough to find another great option at Saint Clements Castle in Portland, Ct. The Marina building to be exact, down on the river, the views, the possibilities…. And here came her wedding day, so excited. And upon pulling into the Marina. It started pouring. hard. And during the ceremony, it started raining hard. And during the reception. Yup… Rain.

Port Hampton Marina at Saint Clements Castle Wedding Photography Photos TAB Photographic Ct. You may be asking why I’m talking about all this non-sense about their day. And well, it wasn’t nonsense, it was their day. The way it was unfolding, their day…. And the other reason I’m talking about it is for one simple reason…. Because NOT ONCE did I hear either of them complain. They took each moment for what it was and embraced it and that alone, has the power to make a wedding day awesome! Though in all honesty it was also the hardest part of the day. “Navigating the inevitable ups and downs that come with planning; although we had a little more than we bargained for!! And the seating chart; seating charts are stressful!”

That and the entire Mondo pizza that the bride and her brides maids devoured. That was actually her bridal confession. While I don’t normally share them public with the specific wedding, I couldn’t resist with this one. “My bridesmaids and I were demolishing a Mondo’s Pizza about an hour before ceremony time. And I believe we have the photos to prove it :)” And yes! I have pics to prove it and they’re awesome. haha…

Port Hampton Marina at Saint Clements Castle Wedding Photography Photos TAB Photographic Ct. Anyway… Let’s rewind to 2007… That’s like forever ago!!! To be exact – “Summer of 2007. I was babysitting, relieving the daytime babysitter of her duties. Waleeds brother was friends with her, and was there. As soon as he saw me he said ‘You’d be perfect for my brother.’ The rest is history. We went on a blind date a week later- at the movie theater and saw ‘Oceans 13.’ We both agree that watching a movie is a horrible blind date idea. But apparently not that horrible! ;)”

And then let’s fast forward to an October evening  – “It was my birthday. We were on our way to my birthday dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant, and he asked if I wanted to take a walk hill at Horsebarn Hill at UConn and watch the sunset. I was hungry but obliged because it was a beautiful October evening. As I’m taking sunset pics with my iPhone he acts like he has a rock in his shoe, very believably. I realize he’s taking a long time to stand back up. I glance over and realize he’s down on knee. We spent the next half hour sitting in tall grass, basking in beautiful light and watched the sun dip behind the Uconn campus.”

I guess the Thai food become secondary on this day because she obviously said yes.

Port Hampton Marina at Saint Clements Castle Wedding Photography Photos TAB Photographic Ct. It would be so incredibly easy to go on about their day. About all the dancing, the non-stop dancing. I could write an entire story on how, in the rain, these two were so willing to work with my thoughts and ideas. Walking thru the wet grass, over and thru the weeds and out onto the rocks that roll into the river for certain photos. Or how in the pouring rain, toward the end of the evening, these two were not only willing to pose with out an umbrella but said “let’s keep shooting, these photos mean the world”….. For all they knew I could have been taking selfies. haha… (But I wasn’t)…

In departing, I want to share the advice that Meagan wrote because she pretty much nailed it on the head: “The day won’t go exactly as you envisioned or planned; it may rain or the button that is bustling on your dress may pop off (hehe) but take a deep breath and cherish the moment you’re in together; because it goes by in a flash. The photos are all you have that’s tangible after your wedding day- so don’t take it lightly. Find someone that understands you as a couple; and captures the love the way you want to look back on It 50 years from now.”

So now… The photos and down below the photos you can leave a comment and love if you feel the need.

The Mason’s Island Wedding for Carly and Brendan

 

Mason's Island Yacht Club Mystic Ct. Wedding Photographer TAB Photographic

Mason's Island Yacht Club Mystic Wedding Photographer“Brendan and I met during our first year at the University of Connecticut. We were friends at first but soon realized we were soul mates when complete strangers would ask us how long we’d been together because it seemed like forever (we weren’t even dating yet!). It was evident we cared deeply for each other and connected in a very special way early on. The rest is history.”

Well, the rest wasn’t or isn’t history because these two, instead of the rest being history, I think they’re going to make history. The way these two are together, honestly, from our engagement session in NYC to their wedding day. They just seem so incredibly connected… Across the spectrum, connected… Maybe it’s just the way Carly handles her life because if you saw the connection everyone in their family has, it’s almost magic.

Mason's Island Yacht Club Mystic Ct. Wedding Photographer TAB PhotographicAnyway, their wedding day, a rainy wind swept day…. That is, till they walked down the aisle because then – then the day lightened up. Yea, there were storm clouds still decorating the sky, but gosh, they just helped create some awesome. So we won’t complain about those. And it was fitting to be having their day on the water since Brendan asked Carly to marry him.

“Brendan woke me up on a chilly but mostly sunny January morning and asked me if I wanted to go for a walk on the beach. I said yes and hopped out of bed without a stitch of make up on and without a coffee in my system (I had NO idea what was about to happen). We sat down on a bench near the beach when I suddenly look over and he is down on one knee asking me to be his wife! He had hidden a bottle of champagne right near the bench and we celebrated our excitement right away. We spent the rest of the morning in a cafe eating eggs and sharing the news with all of our loved ones.”

2016-08-17_00452016-08-17_0032So from the engagement to the wedding, looking back on the day, it was the family and friends Carly remembers most. Not surprising at all… From the moment they walked in during introductions which Carly recalls as “one of the most amazing and overwhelming experiences of our lives” to her family members surprising them with singing their first dance. Family members filling the instrument positions and rocking it out for sure!!!

The only thing they said they would change, which is probably something every couple should listen to, “is to be able to make it last longer and go slower. I’d love to just relive the day over and over again. That’s what pictures are for!”.

So that’s just it folks. Slow down… Slow down as much of your life as you can. take it in and live in the moments because in the end, that’s all you have.

Kelsey and Matt’s Backyard DIY Wedding

 

 

Boston Wedding Photographers Backyard Wedding TAB photographicAs a wedding photographer, I travel far and wide to capture the love, the moments and the excitement of a wedding day. From Oregon to Jamaica, From Florida to New Mexico. And of course, tons of New England weddings. Each wedding unique and wonderful in it’s own ways and styles.

From the moment we jump in the car or step foot onto the plane, the thoughts of “what will this wedding hold for new and exciting moments” begin to roll thru my brain. And for Kelsey and Matt’s wedding, that was no different.

Shabby Chic DIY Backyard wedding photos by TAB photographicTheir wedding in the backyard of Matt’s parents home. And such a great little spot! A nice lake sized pond in the backyard, a wonderful backyard with a “shed” (this was no shed) that would be wonderful in my backyard, to the awesome BBQ dinner that was being put together with an entire pig, chicken, great salads and more. Really, this DIY backyard wedding was nothing short of awesome.

Every detail, from the flowers in her hair, to the candles lit and the signs. Everything….. Perfect. Even the weather!!!

So you’ll look thru the photos below and find some great details and ideas for your own weddings. Especially the unplugged sign!!!

And the other thing you’ll see is plenty of fun from the bridal party photos because their day, their day was on time which allowed for some great fun and creating. And Kelsey and her bridesmaids were all about a “mic drop” photo with their bouquets….. So….. Why not. haha….
