2017-10-24T12:26:20ZMusicians: Draumr | Harper Cemetery | Harper’s Ferry, WV
Musicians, long time friends, talents, sociological thinkers, newly coupled, and all around great people, Willow and Gabe are the two impeccable people that make up the band Draumr.
Icelandic for ‘dream,’ these two dreamers took little time in finding the perfect name for their band. It suits them, their style, and their music perfectly!
We chose our location hoping for fog, monochromatic colors and that overall creepy vibe. We were instead gifted gorgeous morning with the warmest fluffy temperatures, a golden sunrise, and the prettiest views!
Willow’s lovely sister Mila came along for the fun and was a great assistant!!
We have been lucky enough to watch them play once, and can’t wait to share those images with you as well as capture new ones when they play again!Advertisements
2017-09-06T17:08:47ZWedding: Ranisha + Shane | The Woodwinds | Branford, Ct
Sometimes, when you know, you just know. When Shane and Ranisha reluctantly decided to meet after weeks of great conversation on a well known dating website, Shane knew they were meant to be. According to our lovely bride Ranisha, their first date was full of laughter, interesting conversation and a plan to meet again soon. It is pretty clear that laughter and communication are prominent in this happy couple’s relationship, and they wore smiles the entire day of their wedding.
The warm day in June quickly arrived, and the bride and groom’s beaming smiles replaced the sun that had gone into hiding. The cloud cover threatened rain, but held off long enough for the lovebirds to tie the knot and take photos outside! The ladies were sheer perfection in their gowns from David’s Bridal, and the guys were so handsome in their suits from Modern Formals. It was like a bunch of models were given to us for the day of the wedding!
The Woodwinds Wedding and Event Center in Branford, CT was a well oiled machine that made sure Ranisha and Shane’s wedding went off without a hitch. The gorgeous property was a fantastic setting for their ceremony and portraits! The ballroom looked amazing with its amber up-lighting and beautiful details that the bride provided. It’s All About You DJs brought a super fun photo booth and the funniest DJ and Emcee ever! Nothing compared to the amazing crowd of family and friends that were there in support and celebration of this wonderful couple. It was an honor to be there, and we are so grateful!
The guys looked great as they hung out and waited for the day to begin! The ladies arrived looking stunning and ready to have a wedding!They had the best idea when it came to getting the newest and littlest member of the family down the aisle! Lighthearted and upbeat Shane appeared serious, calm, and over-the-moon happy when Ranisha began down the aisle. Following the ceremony, the folks at The Woodwinds knew we were going to take pictures and were ready to serve the newlyweds and their party fresh food and drinks! The large tree was such a pretty backdrop for us as we crossed our fingers and hoped for the rain to hold off! (Spoiler, it did!)The proud father of the groom was excited for a portrait of all of his boys!Ugh, the decor, gorgeous! Introducing…Mr. and Mrs. Shane Parker!!! The first dance was filled with so much laughter punctuated by some very sweet, quiet moments between the two. The immense love is so beautiful! The sweet dance was followed by some very special toasts. We can tell you, the food provided by The Woodwinds was phenomenal!After the traditions – the dances, the toasts, dinner, came the dancing. The moves we saw on this dance floor were unlike any we’ve seen. From the young kids to grandma, the dance moves were sick — and they made it look SO easy! Teach us your ways! Congratulations to this amazing couple. We wish you all the years of happiness, love, and health. We know it’s going to be a truly beautiful marriage
