Down on the Farm by Zack Wussow

When I spoke with Jaci and Chris about their wedding plans, they didn’t want getting ready photos, and they weren’t too worried about posed photos, but Jaci did have one very specific request: gotta get a photo with her sheep. So I knew it was going to be a fun wedding.


Some backstory: the wedding was held at The Hickories farm in Ridgefield, which is also where Jaci works. So not only a beautiful setting, but a meaningful one.

The day began with their first look and some couple’s photos among the asparagus.


Soon it was time for the ceremony, held on a rise with the beautifully wooded valley stretching out below.


Then guests whiled away the daylight with an extended cocktail hour full of drinks, conversation, and yard games. Plus some pumpkin rearranging.


Around sunset, we moved into a tent for their first dance, followed by a tasty dinner from Bartaco.


Speeches, parent dances, and a cake cutting followed, all with a casual, DIY approach.


The rest of the night was for dancing, and churros!


Just before they left for their after party, I got the happy couple out for one last photo. How could I not, with a backdrop like this barn!


Congratulations Jaci and Chris!

Fun on the Farm by Zack Wussow

Jesse and Colin were very clear when we met to discuss their wedding; they wanted to have fun.

The setting was Dudley Farm, a scenic, intimate little spot in Guilford. After a brief ceremony, we toured around the grounds for some beautiful posed photos.

The reception was casual and fun. Dinner came in the form of the New Haven Pizza Truck; possibly some of the best wedding food (and pizza) I've ever had! 

The night was full of dancing, fun conversation, drinks, and rounded out with a visit from an ice cream truck!

Incidentally, this was my 80th wedding! And I'll photograph my 90th before the year is out. I hope they're all just as fun!
