Wedding: Elijah and Kristen

After much anticipation, I am thrilled to be sharing photos from Elijah and Kristen’s wedding.

Having grown up with the groom and then having attended college and been friends with both Elijah and Kristen, it was so exciting to get to witness and document these two getting married. I remember when I found out that they were dating, I was on the phone with Kristen and said something along the lines of, “You know, Kristen, I often think about how amazing and sweet and wonderful you are…and that some guy is going to be really lucky to marry you someday. And, that guy had better be good. Then, when I look at Elijah I often think about how amazing and sweet and wonderful he is…and that some girl is going to be really lucky to marry him someday. And, that girl had better be good. Then, when I caught wind of you guys hanging out…BOOM! Perfect. I approve. In case you wanted to know, you have my sincerest blessing.” I don’t think those were my exact words. In fact, they definitely weren’t, but you get the gist. I am so very happy for those two!

Before the wedding, I had the opportunity of photographing Kristen and her bridesmaids getting ready at the Courtyard Shelton by Marriott in Shelton, CT. While I photographed the ladies, Amy Guerrette (of Walker Studios LLC) photographed the men at the Amendola’s home. Amy and I worked together for the day since it was a larger wedding. Amy does a wonderful job and I loved working with her! She has a sneak peek of her wedding photos from the day posted here.

The wedding ceremony was at Calvary Evangelical Free Church, a gorgeous brick church in Trumbull, followed by a receiving line, lots of photos, and a reception at the Waterview in Monroe.

Overall, it was a beautiful day. The rain held out for photos, everyone looked fantastic, and we even managed to get the kiddos to smile for us.

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Amendola! : )
