Our second wedding of the year was held last Saturday night at the Water's Edge Resort and Spa in Westbrook, Connecticut. It was the perfect location for Jennifer and Thomas' weekend celebration. With both families from out of state, the resort played host to the Friday evening rehearsal dinner, the Saturday wedding festivities, and the Sunday morning send-off brunch.
We met Jenn, Tom and Jenn's parents Marvin and Joan very early in their planning process, and hit it off right from the start. Their vision for a classic, winter, black, white and red wedding was so perfect for their February nuptial celebration to come. We had a great time planning together, from those early photographer interviews and DJ meetings, florist appointments, to weekend DIY projects, its hard to believe only 8 months prior, we had just met.
Amidst a classic New England Nor'easter, guests began arriving on Friday afternoon, and the resort was blanketed with 6 fresh inches of snow, which turned out so beautifully for the bride and groom's outside portrait session. Speaking of photography, Kiva Sutton from Annandale Photography beautifully captured the day as it unfolded. His work is so crisp and stunning, he did an incredible job with Jenn and Tom's pictures.

Dana Bartone did a fantastic job with all of the girls hair and make-up.
The ceremony took place in the regal, Royal Ballroom. The chuppah, rich fabric aisle runner, and all of the day's flowers were provided by Jane of Just For You. The red roses used in all of the arrangements were such a match for this February wedding, and the touches of pink and peach, including the spring flowers were so nice as thoughts of spring are around the corner.
Jenn and Tom's details were executed perfectly. Their stationary products, complimentary in design, carried straight through from their Save the Dates to their wedding day products. The following 4 pictures taken by Sixpence For Your Shoe.
Rob Waldron of Standing Ovations DJs kept the party going and the dance floor active. Jenn and Tom didn't consider themselves real dancers, but even they graced the dance floor on multiple occasions! The videographers were great guys, Drew and Timmy from UI Productions.
Jenn and Tom were so nice to work with! We wish them all the best in love and life together.
