Branford House Wedding: Ashley & Chris (Part I)

Good morning!

And BOY do we have a post for you guys today!! Well….AND tomorrow actually! I worked all day yesterday on Ashley & Chris’s Branford House wedding and I just couldn’t get these guys narrowed down enough for one post. I was driving myself crazy & it was getting to the point of cutting images that I really loved, so I just decided to bite the bullet and go ahead and make them a two-parter! Which y’know, is twice the fun! :)

A big part of why I just couldn’t narrow these guys down any further, despite their beautiful details courtesy of Blush Studio & the DIY efforts of Ashley herself, was just that these guys knew that photography was really important to them so they gave us the photographer’s dream schedule for pictures! In addition to doing a first look, they also hung out with us for most of cocktail hour, so we were able to play, take our time, and ended up with images we’re just over the moon about!

I’m going to do their personal post with tomorrow’s Part II to tell you all about how wonderful these guys are, but for now I know that every photographer out there has already just fallen in love with them after hearing that! So for now, enjoy the Getting Ready & Ceremony from Ashley & Chris’s big day!!

Venue: The Branford House
Blooms: The incredibly talented Elizabeth Zemetis of Blush Studio
Dress: A gorgeous Anne Barge gown from The White Dress by the Shore
Jewelry: Vintage
Catering: Coastal Gourmet

**And a HUGE thanks to the lovely Ms. Alicia Sturdy for assisting us & second shooting for the day!

She insisted she wanted the best photographers for her day and you delivered!!! Your love for your work and attention to detail and excellence shines through in each photo. BRAVO!!
