Wadsworth Mansion wedding, Middletown CT | Keith + Lily
It’s Tuesday. And not just any ‘ole Tuesday because this one’s about to get real good. I don’t know what corner of the earth you are on right now but in my corner it’s a bit gloomy and dreary out. But all that gloom didn’t stand a chance when I turned my computer on this morning to get the post ready for Keith and Lily’s Wadsworth Mansion wedding. Not only are both Keith and Lily drop dead gorgeous, which made my camera smile big all day, but they had an incredible team of vendors to help make their wedding at the Wadsworth Mansion a total hit!
Without further ado…
Lily had some of the kindest, sweetest bridesmaid to tend to her on her wedding day. These girls pulled off their duties without a hitch!Oh, Lily, you are all things lovely and beautiful!I love this shot that Rachel grabbed of the ladies patiently waiting and looking out the window.A huge shout out to the girls of Naomi’s Studio and Salon for making Lily and her girls look exceptionally beautiful!I loved that both Keith and Lily got ready in the same hotel because it allowed us more more flexibility with getting shots. I highly recommend this to all couples!Keith was looking rather dapper on his wedding day and was definitely working it for the camera!This flower girl was so cute. At first she wasn’t too sure about walking down the aisle but as soon as she saw Keith she ran up to him and handed him her flower bunch.Here we go! Love that shot on the right that Adam grabbed.Love those looks!Look at that genuine smiles!After their wedding ceremony we headed over to the Wadsworth mansion for their wedding portraits.Not only were Keith and Lily absolutely gorgeous but when you match that with the backdrop of the Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill estate, I knew we were bound to get some awesome photos!The flowers on the lawn of Wadsworth Mansion were in full bloom which just added to the beauty of these wedding portraits at the Wadsworth mansion.I love the lawn at Long Hill Estate!! So beautiful!One of my favorite shots of the day!Another fantastic shot by Adam.I love the columns that are in front of Wadsworth Mansion because they made a nice clean background for Keith and Lily’s wedding photos.One of my favorite parts of photographing weddings at places like the Wadsworth Mansion is being able to showcase the exceptional talent of all the vendors who made the day possible. Starting with Ms. Ana Parzych of Ana Parzych Cakes. That cake, ladies and gents, was not only beautiful but also tasted fantastic!Tony Palmieri of Datura: A Modern Garden totally impressed us with his floral arrangements. Tony recently won “National Floral Designer of the year” and he totally deserved it! Tony has an incredible talent of taking flowers and turning them into art.This entire event was organized and planned by the lovely ladies over at Always and Forever weddings. If you are looking for a wedding planner and coordinator in CT you MUST contact Heidi and Deedee. I kinda adore them 🙂Adding fancy chair covers always take the wedding up a notch and these purple silk covers did not disappoint!I love the look of the inside of Wadsworth mansion because of the timeless elegance it adds to a wedding ceremony or reception.Keith and Lily hired Quartetto Vivo Strings to provide classy background music as the cocktail hour took place on the back patio of the Wadsworth Mansion. They did a fantastic job!How cute is this flower girl? Another classic and beautiful shot by Adam.A Thyme To Cook was on hand for the cocktail hour and dinner and they did a fabulous job with both the presentation and taste of the food!Keith and Lily danced the night away as Atmosphere Productions spun all the latest and greatest mixed with some classic oldies. This shot is another favorite of mine from the day and is, yet again, another from Adam. 🙂Mike Tierney from Audio Media Solutions was on hand to do up-lighting and he did an incredible job! I love how much dimension and personality the Wadsworth mansion has when it is uplit for weddings.One of my favorite parts of Keith and Lily’s wedding day was when Chocolate Fountains of Connecticut set up their incredible display. I tried convincing myself that I could get all the shots I needed for the rest of the night by standing right near that table but I knew I’d had to leave it at some point. Seriously, though, this chocolate fountain was a HUGE hit with all the guests and I highly recommend it to all of my clients!*cue angels singing in heaven*Oh yes, that is a grown man doing a split!
Keith and Lily, thank you so very much for allowing us to be a part of your special day! We had such a blast with you guys! And Heidi and Deedee, you know I love you both…thanks for referring us to some amazing clients 🙂
