The plan for Jen and Ryan's wedding called for bouncing back and forth between a bunch of New Haven locations, so it was amazing that we got a day with perfect weather for stretching our legs.
The day began at Rimage Salon, where Jen and her bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done, while the couple's pup Charlie kept everyone laughing.
Our next stop was the Omni Hotel, a perennial hot-spot for wedding stays. No joke, I've done three weddings in New Haven proper, and they all got ready in the same suite!
Before heading to the ceremony, the guys and the girls stopped in the lobby to do some cool group photos. I love the all-black look - very classy.
The intimate ceremony was held in St. Thomas More Chapel. Not only was it a beautiful service led by Rev. Karl Davis, but this is easily the most photo-friendly church I've worked in. Bright and beautiful!
It was a short walk from there to the Old Campus Courtyard for some posed photos. Walking through downtown is a good way to get lots of supportive honks and hollers!
We also came across a squirrel sneaking off with a chicken tender, in case you thought Yale's campus was totally unlike all other universities.
One last short walk brought us to the Graduate Club, a beautiful, cozy venue where we would spend the rest of the night.
The live band was great, got everyone out on the dance floor, and they even backed Ryan as he sang a song for his new wife. He did great!
Before the end of the night, I got them outside for one last portrait, and borrowed their beautiful rings for a photo.
It was a totally amazing night with an amazing couple. Ryan and Jen looked stunning, and they, their friends, and family were so friendly and gracious!
Congratulations, Jen and Ryan!
