Rich & Bonnie

August 23rd, 2013

I could write a novel about how this came to be, but I’ll spare you the details. Bonnie sent me a heart felt email last winter, we skyped, and emailed some more and the connection I felt with these two was so strong we had to go shoot their wedding in Connecticut!

Sometimes your heart just says ‘yes’ and you listen! So thankful we did!

Bonnie is a talented illustrator for children’s books and an art teacher! Her prince is just that; a prince (teehee). Well maybe not in real life but in her eyes he most definitely is her Prince Charming. Rich serves in the US Army and is currently working as a photographer for them after coming back from serving in Afghanistan. While in Connecticut at the tail end of our road trip this summer, we stayed in a charming Bed & Breakfast in the little farming town where they grew up! Arriving at Bonnie’s parents place on Friday morning, she gave me a tour of the sweet home in the woods her dad built from ground up. Her mom and dad both being profs in art and literature; the house and gardens were brimming with unique character, art, and books!

Bonnie and her bridesmaids started the day out with making their own bouquets from flowers they picked at a local farm. And Mark & I set about creating floral crowns since the florist messed up (insert frownie face).

The ceremony and reception took place at The Golden Lamb Buttery! Such a beautiful setting with mature trees, green hills, and old stone walls that served as fences.

It was a short and sweet intimate ceremony under a tree looking out to the beautiful fields!

So much more goodness from this wedding coming soon!
