Golf Course

Pop the Cork by Zack Wussow

Savannah and Andy’s engagement was so much fun and so unique, I knew their wedding was going to be a lot of fun.


The day began with prep photos, the guys at the couple’s home, and the girls at the Avon Old Farms hotel.


The Avon Old Farms, by the way, is a great wedding venue in itself and has some awesome spots for posed photos.


Then we went to the Pavilion at the Tunxis Country Club for the rest of the day. (Incidentally, I’ve been there before, too!) First, the ceremony. There was hardly a dry eye in the house!


Then, the wedding party and immediate family were driven by (high-speed) golf cart to a special spot for posed photos. Lots of great couples photos, too.


The reception kicked off with the big events - First dance, parent dances, toasts.


Then a buffet dinner, and the dance floor was open! DJ Rudy kept the people moving all night.


Just before I took off, I brought them outside for a final portrait. The lift was his idea.


Congratulations, Savanndy!

Boots Made For Walkin' by Zack Wussow

I met up with Megan and her girls at Fox Hopyard, the site of all the day's festivities. They were busy getting hair and makeup done, plus trying on their boots with their matching robes.


When Chris arrived, we let Megan get a look at him, though he would have to wait till the ceremony.


The ceremony was held out on the porch (thankfully the rain let up in time!) with a beautiful view of the golf course behind.


We headed down to the pond (much easier to do when your bridesmaids are wearing cowboy boots!) for posed photos, which was a lot of fun with this group. It's kind of surprising no one got thrown in.

The rest of the night was the reception, in the biggest gazebo I have ever seen! The food and music were great, this group was hilarious, and there were some fun surprises along the way.


Congratulations, Megan and Chris!

Family and Friends by Zack Wussow

I met up with Russ and Diana at their hotel, where I got the rare treat of photographing both of them getting ready!

Then we moved to the Tunxis Plantation Country Club for the rest of the day, starting with a first look, then the ceremony.

The reception was a laid-back, fun time with lots of dancing and good food, and a touching suprise speech from Diana's son.

It was a great night, beautiful weather despite the threat of rain, and a wonderful (if challenging to photograph) venue. Just a shame I'm dieting so I had to skip the cupcake...

Congratulations Diana and Russ!

Under the Wire by Zack Wussow

The morning of New Year's Eve, I visited the Shuttle Meadow Country Club for Danielle and Lee's wedding. 

It was a great brunch event, simple and intimate. 

There is something about older couples that always really touches me. Possibly the awesomeness of their children getting to attend their wedding, something I got to do with my own dad. Pretty good way to wrap up an exciting and busy year.

Congratulations Danielle and Lee!

Sunny Season at the Tradition by Zack Wussow

(I'll be traveling through the 19th - for now, here's a post about the second of three weddings from a very busy weekend in October.)

I met Tricia and Andrew at the Seasons at the Tradition for their early-October wedding. After a rainy wedding the day before, I was excited to have bright sun, green grass, and a hint of fall color in the trees.


Tricia was dealing with a painful injury from the night before, but she was such a champ! I would never had guessed if someone hadn't told me, and she didn't let it stop her from having a blast.

In contrast to my wedding the day before, this time we had the full suite of special events - fitting at a venue called "the Tradition". Cake cutting, parent dances, bouquet and garter toss. 

Still plenty of time for dancing, though, of course. There is always time for dancing!

(Also, one side note: It's a very strange feeling to be really moved by a song I've never heard at a wedding, only to learn it's by Adam Sandler...)

Congrats, Tricia and Andrew!

Kim and Mike Tee Off by Zack Wussow

It's a testament to the quality of the couple and their friends and family when a wedding goes quickly. It means I'm having tons of fun, things are running smoothly, and everyone's having a good time. 

Kim and Mike's wedding flew by.

Prep was a blast, everyone calm and relaxed. And the full Catholic ceremony that followed was bubbling with barely contained enthusiasm.

So you can imagine what a blast the reception was.

It was my first time at the Connecticut National Golf Club, a surprisingly roomy space in Putnam, CT with a phenomenal staff (Thanks, Jen!) and beautiful grounds. Which you reach by golf cart. Swanky.

It was a fabulous night of dancing, great music, games, and tons and tons of great photos. And maybe the most energetic group of grandparents and great aunts and uncles I've ever seen.

Congratulations, Mike and Kim!
