We happen to absolutely love weddings at Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington, CT. As wine lovers, how could we not?? Tara & JJ, who now live in LA, chose this as their beautiful venue for their early October wedding. It was a perfect day, the way the light hit at the right time. Between the scenery the joyful/loving couple, it made it very easy for us to photograph!
JJ took a trolley from the Whaler’s Inn in Mystic after he got ready, while Tara and her bridesmaids got ready at the venue. It was an emotional and intimate ceremony where they asked the guests to put their phones/cameras away and let us capture the moments. And of course their dog Laila was the flower girl, so cute! The details all around were so beautiful, including the flower arrangements from Hana Floral Design and the amazing photo memory wall they hung up in the venue. The music by Sweet Tooth & the Sugarbabies during the reception was so much fun and unforgettable!
Congrats Tara & JJ, you were stunning and so great to work with. Enjoy some of our favorites!
