Nancy & Matt: I Do at the Bee & Thistle Inn

Yesterday, I shot my last wedding of the year. And I could not have asked for a greater way to end my 2011 season. Nancy and Matt were fun and easy-going and soooooooo in love. The way they looked at each other seriously melted my heart a little with each little glance and each lingering stare. They were like giddy little kids and it was so lovely to get to capture this most special day in their lives.

And everything was special about the day...the place, one of my favorite venues, The Bee and Thistle Inn in Old Lyme, was the perfect backdrop and setting for this magical union. Carol Schilling officiated and details from the cake to the flowers to the table design to the place cards and menu were all the doing of master event planner Linnea Rufo, the ever-graceful and creative InnKeeper.

And if all this goodness wasn't quite enough, Nancy was truly a vision. She has silver blonde hair...I've never seen anything quite like it, and she, along with her amazing hair, were completely captivating - my camera and I had a field day. And Matt was quite the catch as well, so as you will see below, these two kids were completely gorgeous and totally head over heels for each other.

So, you see, it was a truly lovely way for my 2011 season to conclude. And I want to take a moment to thank all of my wonderful and amazing couples from this year. I am so blessed to have met all of you and am honored to be the one who got to capture one of the most important days in your lives. All of your love stories are unique and it was so wonderful to constantly bear witness to such love and fullness of heart. You all are truly inspiring and it so makes me look forward to the day when I meet my match :) Thank you all, for showing me what the meaning of true love is. I am so glad that I got to make some art out it for you all :)

Now, witness Nancy and Matt's special day...

  1. Carrie, words cannot express how amazingly you captured Nancy and Matt on their day. Nancy was beyond gorgeous; between her silver locks and perfect dress- and Matt's reaction to it all- you showed us glimpses that we other wise wouldn't see. We love you!
