What can I say about this couple that I haven’t already said? They are amazing. From the moment I met them for our walk through/Engagement Session, and they brought me cupcakes, I knew I would love them!
Julie and Ben are both graduates of Wesleyan University in Connecticut, and they actually met there as students. So it was only natural that they would have their wedding in this special place.
The beautiful, and moving ceremony took place in the campus chapel, and it was a gorgeously warm place to wed.
The day of the wedding, we were having horrible rain storms, but I was hopeful it would clear up after the ceremony, at least so we could get a few outside shots. Thankfully it did, and we were able to get a number of images taken outside, and travel towards the library. But first we got a few shots in while we waited.
We grabbed our umbrellas, and headed to the library…
But as we were setting up for some formal photos, we noticed this group of students who had been sliding down the muddy hill on campus. They were making their way over to us, and Julie and Ben both agreed top let them come over and get a shot with them! This image was even featured on Huffpost Weddings!
Julie and Ben were troopers, not letting a little rain stop them!
We couldn’t help but have a little fun in the library, and they even practiced their first dance a little before we headed to the reception hall across campus.
Julie and Ben chose the Kitchen at Billings Forge for their food, which was delicious. Their cake was lovely, and made by A Little Imagination Cakes, and their florals were beautifully crafted by Azalea Floral Design.
All their hard work practicing their first dance paid off, and they performed it beautifully, with the perfect kiss at the end! (Kudos to Jim from Collins Productions DJ Entertainment for keeping everyone dancing!)
I can’t say enough how much I loved working with Julie and Ben. I hope to continue capturing the important moments in their lives for years to come. Cheers, you two!
