Elegant Summer Backyard Wedding

There is nothing I love more than an elegant summer backyard wedding with a big white tent.  And I know I’m partial, seeing as that’s how I got married myself. When I first met Kellian and Chris for drinks in Tribeca to chat about their big day, I knew instantly we’d be a great fit for each other.

After spending so much time in Brooklyn taking stinky cabs to weddings and dealing with traffic, it felt amazing to get out of the city and cruise through the gorgeous backroads to Redding, CT, while blasting Of Monsters and Men and singing at the top of my lungs. Plus, Chris’s dad owns the top tent rental company in Connecticut so I knew I’d be in for a treat photographing this lovely wedding outside their Connecticut home.

Hands down the best part of the day was when Kellian caught a MAJOR case of the giggles while reading her handwritten vows. I’m talking major giggles. Followed by the most hilariously cute tears/snot combo. It was such a great moment. So excited for these two as they just packed up and left NYC to start their lives together in their new Connecticut home.
