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!
Our beautiful bride, and her bouquet of greens.
This little four-legged love nearly stole the stage at the wedding, but you can’t blame her for being so cute.
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.
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.

The wedding party in their full colorful grandeur.
Lots of teary moments as the dances and toasts began.
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.
Reliving the Shelton High School glory days!
Happy love, Bridget and Matt! I adored your wedding and both of you, thank you for having me along!
