Wedding: Ashley + Garrit | The Pond House Cafe @ Elizabeth Park, Hartford, CT

Ok, everyone.  This is a good one.  This is one to send you into your holiday weekend.  Or to celebrate the end of summer.  Or to make you cry...or laugh.  I love this post and this couple so much!  When I first talked to Ashley on the phone, I knew their wedding was going to be a great fit.  I just knew it, just from talking to her for a few minutes.  Then, I shot their engagement session...and, I became even more attached :). 

And then, on their wedding day - it was exactly how awesome I thought it would be but, so much more too.  I learned that Garrit could jump 8 feet in the air (!), and that it could really be that humid outside (Tim needed a few shirt changes...), and I also witnessed (and documented!) one of my most favorite first looks ever...I guess what I am getting at is, it was an amazing day with a couple that is most definitely in love.  And for us, that is what this is all about. 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I hope you spend it outside with family and friends.  You may catch me dropping in here....
