Hello Again!

Tonight’s blog post features the September 1, 2016 engagement session of Abby & Andrew.  We had quite a time trying to get their engagement session done.. first we had to postpone due to weather.  Then, at the time of their session we had to change locations because I had gotten word that there were TONS of biting insects flying around the chosen spot.  We moved their session to Rocky Neck State Park and I think it was the best choice EVER!  They chose to have two different outfits for their session to give their photos some variety.  We started the session at the Pavilion in their semi-formal attire and moved to the beach for some shots in the casual outfits.

The two of them met when they were each visiting good friends from college who happened to be siblings.   When we met before their engagement session, they told me “their story”…. Andy had left a poem for Abby, telling her to come meet him for a special night, starting at Hammonnasset Park near Meigs Point. Once she arrived, he’d set up a blanket and had a gift for her; a home-made scrapbook about their lives together and all their adventures and accomplishments. The very last page asked “Will you marry me” and Andy was down on one knee! They celebrated with champagne and a wonderful dinner at Café Routier.

Their wedding date is set for June 23, 2017. Their ceremony will be held along the Connecticut River at the beautiful Riverfront Park in Glastonbury, CT  and their reception will be at The Glastonbury Boathouse.  Some of their decor for the wedding is going to be hand made, including the table numbers.  They are using driftwood that they collected from Hammonnasset to make sailboats and the table numbers will be on the sails.  Abby’s cousin will be putting together the flowers, and they are looking forward to the delicious food that will be provided by David Allen Catering.

They’re not just excited about the details, though. They’re also excited to spend the rest of their lives together. It’s so clear that this couple is head-over-heels for each other!  You’ll see what I mean when you see the photos!
