Jonathan Edwards Winery Wedding - Sara and Jerry
I’ve been to some really beautiful places for destination weddings and part of the fun and excitement of being a wedding photographer is the opportunity to travel. I had never been to Connecticut before but as soon as I arrived at my Airbnb in Stonington, I was in love with New England charm. I woke early on the day of the wedding to drive into town and take it all in. I ran along the water where men fished, I passed cedar shake houses and driveways with a patch of grass mowed neatly down the middle. I turned down cobblestone sidewalks and saw the American flag proudly displayed in a multitude of ways. In every direction there was beauty to behold and I only wished I had more time to experience it.
Sara and Jerry were married at Jonathan Edwards Winery and we were so fortunate to have the perfect Fall day, amidst these sweltering heat waves we’ve been experiencing. The vineyard shuts down around 4pm at which point they had the entire property to themselves. I’ve worked with this family so many times and each wedding is as wonderful as the last. Great venues and perfect weather are nice, but when I am excited to see the people AT the wedding, that is when magic really happens. I am excited to share these images with you, I hope you can feel the emotions that were felt on this wedding day and I hope this couple is enjoying many more days of relaxation in Africa.
