I can now check off  “beautifully-executed-woodland-nature-filled-movie-premier-themed-wedding” off my life list, thanks to you, Matt and Bridget! Your wedding, deep in the woods at Halcyon Hills Farm was amazing!

This little four-legged love nearly stole the stage at the wedding, but you can’t blame her for being so cute.halyconhill_farmwedding_annasawinphotography_CT_003

Bridget’s attendants were dressed in the glorious jewel tones that echoed the deep green of the CT woods. Watch for a peek of Bridget’s green shoes as you view this post!


Bridget’s gown, by BHLDN was the perfect accompaniment to her wood sprite hair and bouquet.halyconhill_farmwedding_annasawinphotography_CT_005

Dishing out a little pre-ceremony love.

This creative pair met at Keene State University, and now reside in Queens, NY. They took their love of film (Matt’s a professional filmmaker) and tied it to their wedding, with movie-named tables, dazzling lighting created by Matt and dubbed The Business, movies playing on the tent roof and of course, a step-and-repeat for their glamorous guests. halyconhill_farmwedding_annasawinphotography_CT_007 halyconhill_farmwedding_annasawinphotography_CT_008 halyconhill_farmwedding_annasawinphotography_CT_009

I think this is my most expressive bride of all time. And my favorite photo serendipity of the night.

Just a peek at THE BUSINESS.

Fire magic by their Halcyon Hill Farm hosts. Weddings here (just a few a year!) have acres upon acres of glorious Connecticut farmland for their ceremony, photos, tent and even a fire pit outside.halyconhill_farmwedding_annasawinphotography_CT_036

Happy love, Bridget and Matt! I adored your wedding and both of you, thank you for having me along!
