Connecticut Winter Wedding
Winter weddings can be tricky, especially in New England. Crisp air suggests that squalls of snow could be underway at any moment, and on the day of Nicole and Mark’s wedding, it did. In fact, I was driving while multiple feet of snow fell on the ground. Despite the treacherous conditions, most of the vendors (myself included) were able to make it to the wedding and celebrate together. But there was a lot of phone calls and last minute changes. That snow had us all down to the wire.
So on went the red gloves. Out came the heavy black coat for him. And man, a black tie groom looks smashing in the snow. That contrast just makes every photo pop. A wedding in Danbury was what they had planned, but it looks like we hopped over to a ski lodge! All the guests warmed their hands over the fire and made a fist pump when the Rabbi arrived. He had been picked up by the bride’s brother who drove a massive SUV to get him to the wedding. The couple had a traditional Jewish ceremony, with a tisch and a badeken, and ended the evening with some lovely photos against the sparkling snow.
