If I Could Take You Up In Paradise Up Above

Liz and Teddy were so excited to get married! Really. I don't think I've ever seen two people smile so much in one day. It was totally infectious. They had a beautiful and unique wedding at The Essex Yacht Club in Essex, CT. The ceremony was held right on the shores of the Connecticut River, in front of Teddy's family's gorgeous sailboat. Could it get any better than that?

We started off at Liz's mom's house, where the women got their hair done.

Liz & Teddy saw each other before the ceremony so we were able to enjoy some photo time together. We even got to go on the boat! Here's the fun fact I learned about sailboats that day - all those colorful flags stand for letters of the alphabet!

Look at how excited she is to be walking down the aisle! Eeks!

Ring shots! There was an ice cream sundae bar (yum), so what sort of photographer would I be if I didn't make use of some of the toppings? And, one of the "themes" of the wedding was lemon & limes, so I made use of those, too!

Emily and I had such a wonderful time photographing this wedding! I've known Liz for like 11 years now (yikes!) and it was such an honor to be there to celebrate this couple. I got to see some familiar faces that I haven't seen in forever, which is always fun. Liz & Teddy (& Liz's mom) have been very patient waiting for these photos, so thank you for that. Congratulations!
