When Greg’s Aunt Eileen, who officiated the wedding ceremony, asked Greg if he took Annisa to be his wife he fervently responded, “Well hell yes Eileen, I do.”
I loved going home to Connecticut to photograph Annisa and Greg’s rustic chic wedding at Tunxis Plantation in Farmington. Greg and Annisa are two kind, thoughtful, and hilariously funny people who anyone can see are completely in love with each other. They were married on Friday, July 3, which also marked Annisa’s parent’s 50th wedding anniversary. Annisa got dressed in her beautiful Cotton Bride gown at her and Greg’s new home in West Hartford before heading over to the Hill-Stead Museum for photos. When Greg arrived for the first look, he stepped off the trolly and said to me, “Meny, bring me my bride!”
More than anything, I wish I had a recording of all the laughter at this wedding to accompany this post. Words alone cannot truly convey the spirited setting but hopefully the photos make it clear: this was a one of a kind event.
This wedding was also a bit of a reunion for me. I grew up with Greg and went to high school with the majority of the groomsmen. Not having seen many of my former Conard High School classmates since graduation, I had no idea what to expect from their dancing skills. While I don’t remember splits, flips, handstands, or Boyz II Men serenades from prom, I was thrilled to capture it all 10 years later.
Annisa and Greg-you threw one hell of a party and I can’t thank you enough for letting me photograph your wedding. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Teich!
Extra serious 19th century Bridal Party photo.
