Melissa & Kevin were recently married on one of the most beautiful days of the year.
Starting off at Melissa’s childhood home in Ridgefield Connecticut – we then set off to their full Catholic Mass Wedding Ceremony at Our Holy Family in New Rochelle.
After the ceremony we stopped at New Rochelle High School for photos- then onward to their reception at the VIP Country Club also in New Rochelle.
I loved Melissa’s expression and her reaction to opening Kevin’s gift…”It’s us!”

Seems as though Madison has learned young, the importance of face fanning in order to keep one’s cool… as wedding days can be overwhelming… even for the Flower girl .
She did a great job!
Vienna was no exception either…hanging with Melissa’s Dad carrying on conversation.
Mom’s turn for face fanning… =)
Melissa’s Dad… so proud – a very happy moment indeed!
So much love and such heartfelt sentiment as Melissa gifted her Mom & Dad with personalized presents before the wedding.
Driving to Melissa’s house in Ridgefield Connecticut, I noticed that the quaint town was lined with scenic stone walls throughout.
When I saw that one of these rustic walls was in Melissa’s backyard I placed her bouquet there for a photo.
I love when parents decorate their home for the wedding!
As a surprise to Melissa, Kevin hired these trumpet players to greet her arrival to the church.
This is the face of a groom that is so in love and elated to marry his beautiful bride!
Kevin cannot stop admiring his bride and I love Melissa’s expression!
I love these first moments as husband and wife…
Both beaming with joy… Melissa smiles at her Dad as Kevin looks down at the wedding ring that he placed on her finger.
I love how deeply Melissa and Kevin honor and love their parents.
New Rochelle High School is such a picturesque campus.

The VIP Country Club in New Rochelle has this gorgeous location for photos by the water.
The sun was setting as we finished family formals right before the cocktail hour.
What a crew! Love these kids – being led by the pip of the century!
Melissa & Kevin, thank you for choosing me to photograph your “Happily Ever After”.
It was an absolute joy spending the day with you – celebrating with your family and friends.
May you cherish each other forever.
Wishing you ever so much love always.
