On Friday I wrapped up editing on my last 2018 wedding. Saturday, I went to Litchfield to do my first one of 2019! Fiona and Brian’s wedding brought in the new year in fine style.
The day started with prep for the ladies at the Spa at Litchfield Hills and the Litchfield Inn (a wedding venue I’ve shot at before and a beautiful building). Their daughter was cracking us up the whole time.
Then it was off the St. Anthony of Padua for the ceremony. There was just time beforehand for a few photos of Brian. His suit jacket’s plaid is in honor of Fiona’s Irish family, a great touch!
The ceremony was great. Its my second wedding with Father Tucker, and he’s wonderful for weddings. Lots of great little moments, and he’s very photographer friendly, which I of course appreciate!
Then it was just a quick run through the rain (hey- it could have been snow!) to the Sanctum Club next door, a wonderful old building. Perfect atmosphere for Litchfield!
Speeches and cake cutting were the only major events at Fiona and Brian’s laid-back reception, but the afternoon was full of great food and conversation. A lot of Fiona’s family was in town from all over the world, and you could tell everyone was so excited to be together.
A wonderful start to the new year!
