Summer Fling by Zack Wussow

Back in June, I went out to Waterbury for another great Mattatuck Museum event, this time at the beautiful campus of a local school. (The museum is currently undergoing a renovation project that is going to be amazing!)


Called the “Summer Fling”, it was English garden party-themed, with charity games, a silent auction, and an amazing dinner.


It was a beautiful night, with perfect weather, lots of good times, and a lot of money was raised for a great cause.


I can’t wait to see the museum when it reopens!

A Work of Art by Zack Wussow

I’ve been friends with Cyndi since she looked like Wednesday Adams in the fifth grade. So needless to say I was very excited to help her celebrate her wedding to Alex.


The day began at the Ethan Allen Hotel for prep photos.


Then it was off to the Keeler Tavern Museum in Ridgefield for the ceremony and reception - a totally stunning venue and perfect for Cyndi and Alex’s intimate wedding. They both work in museums, and decided on a pop-art theme with so many amazing little touches in the decorations.


I especially loved the cake from A Little Imagination Cakes, the same baker who made my wedding cake.


Unfortunately weather forced the ceremony inside, but we could hardly complain - the garden house is a beautiful setting any day.


Mother nature gave us a nice reprieve for some posed photos outside. The Keeler’s gardens are beautiful, and only got better as the night went on.


Next came introductions, their first dance, and toasts.


During dinner I borrowed their rings for a quick photo. Gotta make use of that cake before they cut it!


To round out the big moments, after dinner Alex and Cyndi cut their cake and danced with their parents. Always a touching moment!


Then it was time to celebrate, and their friends and family did not disappoint on the dance floor.


And finally, I snuck them outside to make use of the beautifully lit garden one more time before they headed off to the after party.


Congratulations Cyndi and Alex! You guys are the best.
