:: Hopkins Vineyard Wedding :: Warren, CT ::

Silvia & Todd's "Vintage Romantic Under the Stars Wedding" this past September was absolutely breathtaking. Hopkins Vineyard in Warren, Connecticut is a certainly a night to remember. It was such a pleasure working with Silvia & Todd throughout the planning process and especially the combining of her Brazilian culture with Todd's American roots. I especially miss our evening Facetime meetings as we planned the majority of their wedding remotely as they live in Texas!

Huge thank you to Matt Branscombe of BSC Photo for the absolutely stunning images below!

The day began at the Sachem Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast around the corner from the vineyard.

An overflow of lush pink & white flowers by Fleurescent consumed the cool and rustic chic farm tables from New England Country Rentals under the super fab clear tent.

Absolutely perfect setting for a ceremony, under a chandelier-clad arbor overlooking the vineyards and the incredible landscape of Litchfield Hills.

One of the awesome parts of my "job" is being the first person to see my bride and groom after they walked down the aisle together during their first few moments as a married couple. Those moments are by far the sweetest most genuine moments of every wedding, and I'll never repeat what I hear ;)

Only in Litchfield Hills could you stand in the middle of the street for 5 mins straight without even looking behind you to see if a car is coming.
