I always love photographing weddings. There's so much love in the air and the bride and groom spend so much time carefully planning all the details. It was not any different for Robert & Melissa’s wedding, either!
The wedding and reception were at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven CT, and was catered by Taco Loco Taco Truck and Big Green Pizza Truck. They danced to their first song "Never Stop" by Safety Suit, which was played by DJ Gadget - Aimee Spicer.
A few more people that helped their wedding go off without a hitch was:
Cake Maker: Vesta Bakery of Westerly RI
Wedding Planner: The Bride herself - Events By Melissa
Where Dress was Purchased: Vows Bridal Outlet in Watertown MA
Florist: Flowers and centerpieces were created by the bride, including the stunning brooch Bridal Bouquet
I will never forget how everyone was brought to tears by the Bride's Daughter who could not contain the happiness at the vows exchanged by her mother and new father.
Rob and Melissa went to high school together but were never friends, until years later when they connected through Melissa's cousin. They spent time getting to know one another and Rob popped the question on New Year's Eve 2014 as the ball was dropping.
When I asked Melissa what her favorite part of the wedding was, she said:
"For me, there were two moments. One was the moment we were announced as husband and wife. We had waited for so long it was amazing to finally have it be here.
The second was a moment we set up just for the two of us. After all our guests left we asked the DJ to play a song that has special meaning for us and we just danced. We got to look out over the carousel and our tables all lit up and I think we both just felt so proud of what we had accomplished, so happy and just totally in love!"
You could tell they were really loving every minute of their special day.
Check out this gorgeous wedding!
