Brianne & John || Waterview Wedding || Connecticut


A Waterview Wedding

Brianne and John were married on August 3rd, with a ceremony at St. Augustine Cathedral in Trumbull and a reception at The Waterview in Monroe, CT.

This wedding was extra special for me for many reasons. Brianne is a good friend of mine and I also had the privilege of photographing her sister’s wedding. Watching families grow and transition is such a fun part of being a wedding photographer.  My fellow Scorpio, this girl has got your back and is always down for a good time. From late night dive bar dance parties to the most epic Puerto Rico trip, I hold some of my most treasured memories with her. So when she told me she reconnected with someone and it just felt so right, I was so excited to hear more about him.

Reconnecting after 17 years

They went to grade school together for fourth and fifth grade and grew up in the same town yet never crossed paths.  About 17 years later, through mutual friends they reconnected and decided to go on a date. After dating for about a year things starting getting serious and they decided to move in together. John loves that Brianne is passionate, loving, and beautiful person inside and out. She is exactly what he wanted in a wife. Brianne loves that John is so fun, he always has her laughing over the silliest of things. They sing and dance together non-stop. He helps her not take life too seriously and keeps her grounded. They knew they were in it for the long run.

A Gorgeous Wedding at The Waterview

Brianne and John were married on a hot but gorgeous day in August. Their ceremony was at St. Augustine Cathedral and they were married by a bishop which is a very special honor. After the beautiful ceremony, we headed to The Waterview where everything was decorated straight out of a magazine. Brianne and John really knew how to throw a party and everything down to the very last detail was perfect.

It was so fun to watch these two interact with each-other throughout the day. John made Brianne smile during any of the normal wedding stress and the way he made her laugh with such ease was truly inspiring.  

Brianne and John, I am so happy that you found each-other again. You two fit together effortlessly and I was so honored to walk by your side on your wedding day. Cheers to the many more crazy adventures ahead of you!
