Coastal Vineyard Wedding | Mikaela & Russ

At the end of July this precious couple tied the knot and danced the night away at one of the most perfect Connecticut coastal vineyard venues. After spending a night taking their engagement photos last year I was hoping I was going to be able to close my eyes and their wedding day would be here already because I was that excited for these two to enter into their forever together. Well, that didn't happen, but the wait was absolutely worth it!

Every detail was elegantly planned and their day was just, so them. From the trolley transportation from the ceremony to reception, a donut-tower-cake, the perfect combination of details, jewelry, and tie clips for their dads, everything was beautifully thought out.

Mikaela's preparations were calm and fun - the house filled with laughter and occasional tears. Her gorgeous and thoughtful bridesmaids even prepared a delicious lunch and made sure she ate (I'm looking at you, future brides! If there's one tip I can give anyone on their wedding day it's to properly hydrate and eat before the ceremony.) The flower girl was even able to sneak in a quick nap in the middle of the getting ready festivities - consider me impressed!

From heartfelt vows to intimate moments between the grapevines at Saltwater Farm Vineyard to dancing the night away with friends and family, Russ & Mikaela had a stunning day, and I'm just as confident saying they undoubtedly have a future ahead of them as beautiful and full of life, love, and laughter as they enjoyed on their wedding day.

Well wishes to the very happy couple! Mikaela & Russ, it was an absolute pleasure working with you and an honor to have been entrusted to capture some of your most precious memories.
