Julie + Kevin: A romantic black-tie wedding in Greenwich

Julie and Kevin grew up in the same town (but didn’t meet until after college when out with friends right before Thanksgiving), they live in NYC but love traveling everywhere and, perhaps my favorite fact about them? They love waffle trucks! “It’s our guilty pleasure,” Julie confessed.

While they didn’t have a waffle truck appear at their elegant Greenwich wedding, they did have many of those same friends with them to celebrate, and celebrate they did! It was a loving affair, from the personal Mass at St. Mary’s of Greenwich to the reception, filled with heart-felt toasts, fantastic music, dancing and food, and even a Notre Dame grooms’ cake for Kevin.


They both got ready with their wedding party at J-House Greenwich–the stationery set the stage for their truly elegant affair, in shades of grey, navy and cream.delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_002 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_003

Kevin’s headphones were a gift from his bride–noise-canceling ones to accompany them on the flight to Argentina for their honeymoon.

Sometimes it’s really hard to be a ring bearer.delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_013 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_014 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_015

Julie and Kevin were married by a dear family friend on Kevin’s side, from his family’s long association with Fairfield Prep.delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_016 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_017 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_018

The newly married couple left the church surrounded by bubbles on all sides!delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_019 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_020 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_021

This stunning detail from Julie’s gown and florals is one of my favorites of the day!delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_022 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_023 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_024 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_025 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_026

Beautiful toasts led to more than a few happy tears.delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_029

I think it is no exaggeration to say that nearly everyone was on the floor dancing to the sounds of Atomic Funk Project.delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_030 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_031 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_032 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_033 delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_034

And I may have been a little teary myself when the gathered group sang “God Bless America”– a family tradition–to close out the evening.delamar_hotel_greenwich_wedding_annasawinphotography_035

Happy love, Julie and Kevin! xo, Anna
