Kristina + Jay: Married at Jonathan Edwards Winery

Add Comment

My most jumping-est couple ever! I love these two and their beautiful, joyous spirit, as well as the incredible love and respect for each other and their friends and families. Their October wedding day at Jonathan Edwards Winery was framed with rain clouds, but instead of showing disappointment, they headed outside with me with their typical upbeat spirit for photos in the rain, and embraced the intimacy of a wedding ceremony in the winery’s barrel room. After the ceremony, we headed to the warm embrace of the tent for a simply fantastic party. Come celebrate with Kristina and Jay!jonathanedwardswinery_wedding_october_annasawinphotography_vineyard_ct_001
