Christ Church New Haven Wedding

Brigid and Ximena’s wedding was epic in oh-so-many ways. First off, how often do you get to shoot a same-sex wedding at an insanely gorgeous Episcopalian Church a stone’s throw from where you live in New Haven? And where the brides make their exit on their green Buddy scooter? Not often enough.

As a student at the Yale Divinity School, Brigid knew she wanted to be married in the church and Ximena was equally committed. Surrounded by family and friends from Yale, Christ Church, and Wellesley (where Brigid and Ximena met), the two exchanged their vows in the 1898 building during a lovely mass. And check out the choir: front and center is Kelly Prizel Photography’s own Katharine.

After the service was complete, the two headed down to the church social hall for sweets, board games (how amazing is this?) and, of course, knitting. After an epic scooter send-off, complete with bubbles, the couple reconvened in New Haven’s lovely Edgerton Park, where it was time for some croquet and relaxing with their nearest and dearest.

PS- I was asked recently by a wedding magazine what I thought the latest “trends” in LGBT weddings were going to be. Without hesitation, I said “LGBT religious weddings.” It’s really wonderful to be able to shoot LGBT and queer couples who have found or come home to faith traditions that are accepting and affirming. Obviously religious weddings aren’t possible or even desirable for all LGBT people, but for some it is really important (myself included– I couldn’t imagine marrying Natalie without our big Jewish ceremony.) I’m so grateful to get to be a part of the little historic moments that happen all the time at the weddings I photograph.
