When your baby cousin gets married and asks you if you could photograph her special day you jump for joy and say YES YES YES. It was an honor to get to capture their special day.
In true Portuguese style the wedding day was full of love, laughter, tears and lots and lots of family. It was special to see two families come together as one.
I moved away from family and friends two years ago and got to head back home to Connecticut for this special occasion. Seeing family, laughing, crying and everything in between was so overdo. I have visions in my head from the time Susete was just a little baby and all the years of her growing up. It’s surreal to see her become a beautiful bride in front of my eyes.
Susete organized this rustic wedding and put her heart and soul into all the details. It was a true family collaboration. Bride and Groom made all the center pieces, wine box and the display for the cake and guestbook. Bouquets were created by the bride. Family corsages and boutonniere’s create by her cousins and sister. Card box was created by niece Taylor Nodwell of Made by Tay Creations.
Ceremony was held at the beautiful Elizabeth Park in West Hartford CT and reception was held at the newly renovated Primavera Pub in Newington CT. Beautiful cake provided by Modern Passtry
Surrounded by their family and friends the happy couple said their I do’s and partied the night away.
I wish the happy couple a life full of love and happiness.
