Whitney + Charlie are such a sweet couple, it was such a pleasure to be a part of their gorgeous wedding. Whitney and I go back to our days of waitressing at Outrigger's in Stratford, CT and I was so honored and excited to be asked to be her coordinator on the most important days of her life - thus far
The ceremony took place at Christ Episcopal Church in Stratford. With its perfect white steeple and classic red doors its the kind church that you dream about getting married in. Whitney is a girl who wears her heart on her sleeve and is so genuine, which made the moment when she turned the corner to walk down the aisle by her mom one that I will never forget. In that moment, she just let the emotion of everything she was feeling at that second come out in in one little burst of tears that well, quite frankly brought me to tears.
After the ceremony everyone head over to the bluffs in Stratford for pictures by BSC Photo Studio, Matt and his second photographer Mike were stealth photographers that caught every moment by every angle of the wedding every time I looked up they were in another random spot capturing the perfect shot. Check out his blog of the event here!
The reception at Anthony's Ocean View was spectacular. Brian and his team are a well oiled machine, everything was perfect, timely and ABUNDANT!! The tablescapes were gorgeous with centerpieces by Elizabeth of Fluerescent, made of beautiful purple and green flowers that were EXACTLY what Whitney was looking for! I said it before and I'll say it again (and again) I love Fluerescent, her work always exceeds my expectations truly redefines the standards!
Guests danced to the tunes by Livewire Entertainment, I had the joy of working with them a few weeks ago at the Pine Orchard Country Club Wedding, the entire band is SO SO SOOOOO amazing, Chantele has the greatest female voice I have ever heard live, let alone at a wedding. Sadly it rained on their wedding day which made the song Rihanna's song Umbrella even more amazing when Livewire performed it. The entire wedding was on the dance floor surrounding Charlie and Whitney getting down, it was so awesome.
It was a wonderful day and I truly am so happy to be a a part of it!! Congrats Charlie and Whitney!!
Until next time,
