The forecast for Brian and Brandie’s wedding day? 100% chance of rain. What we got? A gorgeous blue sky summer day at Harkness Park, with sweeping views of the Long Island Sound waterfront with ferries passing by. We also got a beautiful bride arriving by horse and carriage, attended by the dreamiest of bridesmaids as they created a new family together with a smiling groom and his sons.

Flowers by Hana Floral Design filled Eolia Mansion and the ceremony location outside.

The hardest working flower girl and ring bearer ever!
Brandie and Brian bold trying to hold back the tears as they saw each other for the first time.
I adore our bride’s mother’s reaction, and the girls as they oooooohhhed.
Brandie and Brian, your love for each other and your families is something to behold. I loved being with you for your wedding day, and I’m so happy to share the images reflecting the love and joy of your day!
