Jonathan Edwards Winery Wedding: Christina and Cullen

Set in the far southeast corner of Connecticut, Stonington–apart from being a beautiful and historic area–is a foodie’s delight.  From the famous Stonington scallops to the steely gewurtztraminer from Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington, the local surf and turf provide all the needed delicacies for a celebration.

Stonington’s also an ideal spot for a country wedding…like Christina and Cullen’s.  The couple began their day in Stonington Borough at The Inn at Stonington.  Christina and Cullen made their way down the CT shore to Old Lyme for their ceremony, where they incorporated Swiss touches (Cullen’s family) such as miniature copper cowbells for guests to ring during their recessional.

Everyone then headed up country to the Jonathan Edwards Winery to celebrate in a most relaxed style that comes naturally at the winery…with their own wine and great cuisine by Russel Morin Catering.   Later on, after the cake cutting, came another fun Swiss touch–when the couple shared a sip from a silver bowl of Champagne…Proscht!

By the way…loved Christina’s Amsale dress and the flowers from Blue Butterfly were so pretty.  Thanks so much Christina and Cullen for having us photograph your wedding!  To see many more photos please click here.


Croton-on-Hudson Hudson Valley Wedding: Sam and PJ

Summer camp conjures up many good memories…including, perhaps, summer romances.  What better place to get married than back at camp?

Sam and PJ’s Hudson Valley wedding last summer had that very relaxed and romantic feel–it was held at the Senesqua Lodge in Croton Point Park on the Hudson River some twenty miles north of NYC on a warm day last August.  Lots of kids, games and cocktails on the lawn.  Inside the lodge it’s old school knotty pine with a camp kitchen where chef Ken from Amarillo Grilling brought a whole lotta Chuck-Wagon Texas cuisine north…ribs and bibs, corn bread and more.

A wonderfully relaxed celebration…thanks so much Sam and PJ for having me photograph your wedding day!  To see many more pics please click here.
