I loved going home to photograph Kyleigh and Drew’s beautiful backyard wedding. Even though I’ve lived in New York for almost 9 years, when I mention ‘home’ I am still referring to where I grew up, West Hartford, CT.
Kyleigh and Drew met during law school and live in Cleveland. For their wedding they decided to come back east to Kyleigh’s hometown to celebrate. When talking to Kyleigh leading up to the wedding I could tell her biggest priority for the day was to have fun. Kyleigh looked stunning in her Justin Alexander gown and I loved Drew’s Navy suit. After their ceremony in Hartford at St. Patrick-St. Anthony we took a quick walk through Bushnell Park. I had an awesome time walking through the park with them and taking photos of all the laughter throughout the day. Kyleigh’s home looked beautiful for the reception. Antique hydrangeas in vases filled with wine corks were the perfect centerpieces for this rustic-chic wedding. Heartfelt toasts and some amazing dance moves continued throughout the evening . My mom picked me up at the end of this wedding, though I probably could have walk the half mile back to my house. Congratulations Kyleigh and Drew and thank you for letting me celebrate with you!
Special thanks to my second shooter and friend Emily Poltrack who helped me photograph this wedding!
