I had fun making a time-lapse video of their wedding reception during the afternoon and evening: my favorite part is seeing the stars come out over the tent at the very end! Click HERE to view their time-lapse video at Jonathan Edwards.
Jonathan Edwards Winery was the perfect spot to be married for this outdoorsy, relaxed couple!
Kevin and Alyssa, both busy, accomplished Boston professionals, met on an Ultimate Frisbee team and, well, I’ll let Alyssa take it from here!
“Kevin was drafted to my frisbee team because we were in need more good male players. During the first practice Kevin attended, we scrimmaged and he was on my team. He was wide open (but wasn’t looking my way), and I yelled to him/at him to turn around (even though I only knew him for 20 minutes) – because I had already thrown it his way. Our team went out to a bar after practice, and Kevin pursued me for a few weeks getting me to meet up with him for what he calls dates/ and I didn’t call dates. A few weeks later Kevin wanted to go see Shakespeare on the Common and he needed to make it very very clear that he wanted it to be a date in order for me to agree to it and treat it like a date. We dated for 2 years, had a year sabbatical, ran into each other, got back together, dated 2 more years and got engaged…”
Thank goodness for Frisbee, right? Alyssa is also a graduate of Brown University, which makes her one of NINE wedding clients with ties to Brown this year–next year I’m hoping my alma mater Wheaton College can give the Brown grads a good showing!
It was a dreamy blue sky day in North Stonington for their wedding! The day was accented with their gorgeous colors of plum, yellow, orange, with hints of magenta, all against the backdrop of blue skies and green vines at the vineyard.
Alyssa, a former star gymnast, was stunning in her lace gown.
I love the stone walls of Jonathan Edwards Winery, reflecting the heritage of North Stonington’s farming traditions.

Taking a few moments outside after the hora for some beautiful golder hour portraits. This is one of my favorite moments with my couples–everyone is relaxed and enjoying the party, and it is the most beautiful time of day for portraits.
