Eolia Mansion wedding
It crept in off the coast of Connecticut, slowly and surely, threatening to put a damper on her dream wedding. Drawing closer and closer by the minute, it began to hover over the beach, just a hundred yards or so away from the site where she was to promise forever to the man that her stole her heart. She gazed out the window and in with a soft and steady voice she firmly stated “I don’t care if it rains or not. I am marrying him in one hour under that pergola”. And, as though in full respect and reverence to her confidence and calmness, it stopped. Right there on that shore, a fog so thick and dense just stopped. And waited. It waited until she walked down that aisle. It waited until she was a Mrs. And it waited until she promised forever. And once she was done, it moved in ever so quickly, as though making up for its lost time.
Kelley and Jesse got married on an absolutely breathtakingly beautiful (albeit a bit foggy) day at Eolia Mansion in Harkness Memorial State Park. Never in my life have I photographed a wedding with such incredible fog, and although Kelley would argue that it took a toll on her hair, I think both she and Jesse would agree that the density of the fog gave Eolia Mansion a feel that was so incredibly magical.Earth Blossoms did an absolutely incredible job on Kelley’s flowers! They were so dainty and soft! Ana’s Bridal in Providence, RI. Her jewelry was custom made for her from a shop on Etsy.Naomi’s Studio and Salon on hand to do her hair and makeup. I always love walking in to see one of Naomi’s girls prepping the bride, because they are second to none.first look, and Kelley + Jesse’s did not disappoint. I just love seeing the reactions that both the bride and groom have when seeing each other for the first time…alone…without the pressure of 100 other eyeballs on them. Sugarbelle for her cupcakes, I about died and went to heaven. And then I wrote her and if both the cupcakes and her photographer happen to go missing, she should probably look in one of the closets of Eolia Mansion, where she would find me eating ALL of them.A Thyme to Cook did an incredible job with the catering, and it’s always a pleasure working with them
