Megan and Seth Get married!

You would never know it looking back at their wedding photos, but on the day Megan and Seth got married.. IT WAS COLD!!!  When you look at the photographs from their special day, you'll only see the warm glow from all the love (and scarves and leggings) that was shared between the bride and groom and their family and friends.  

The day started at Megan's parents home.  It was so cozy and relaxed. The best way to start your wedding day!  Christmas movies played on the tv above the roaring fireplace, everyone cozied around the tv with blankets. If I can give any tips to future brides about how to spend the day of your wedding, its defiantly to relax and enjoy your time together.

Once the Big Red firetruck drove by with the groom and his groomsmen... (Yes you read that correctly)  I was off to the venue! When you arrive in a firetruck, you had best believe we are taking photographs with it!

have to point out here, that although I was a nervous wreck about the guys climbing in their dress shoes and suits in the brutal wind.. they were more than willing to jump up on top of this truck.

Megan and Seth decided on a first look for their special day.  It's a newer tradition for weddings, but I have to say, they are one of my most favorites..  The first moments with just the bride and groom.  Priceless.

You would not know how cold it actually was by looking at these photos. It was rough. These two were frozen solid, Megan a little more in her sleeveless dress! BUT how beautiful does she look? We had the fireplace blazing in the bridal cottage for when we were done with photos and a scarf to wrap her in in between shots, but they continue to look effortless and warm in every single photograph.

The wedding was held at Wood Acre Farm in Terryville CT.  It's for sure a hidden gem! How pretty is the view here? Even so late in the season!

The original plan was to have the ceremony outside. But with how cold and windy it was, it was just not ideal.  Luckily, this bride and groom were pretty easy going and also crafty ;) they made a backdrop for their new ceremony spot!!

Wedding's are beautiful.  The details, the people, the love. It sounds cheesy but it's the truth. The wedding day is the start to the next chapter of a couple's lives! Wedding ceremonies are NEVER the same. The words have new meaning, sometimes there is laughter and sometimes tears, (usually from me) <-- I actually cry almost every wedding. I know. But one thing is for sure, after the first kiss.....
