As a New England wedding photographer, I have photographed weddings at many rustic venues. But when Caitlin told me she was planning her wedding at Maple Lane Farms in Preston, CT, I knew this wedding was going to be gorgeous!
Caitlin got ready at The 1791 House right across the street. This New England colonial was the perfect backdrop for all of her details. I was so excited when Enza Events put aside some greenery and buds for me to photograph the invitation suite and accessories. Dan was able to get ready at the wedding suite in the barn which was so convenient.
After the sweetest first look with her dad, Caitlin and I went outside for her first look with Dan. Then we were able to photograph them, their families, and their bridal party before heading back inside so they could cool off before the ceremony.
Their ceremony was officiated by a close family friend under a beautiful tent. Although it had looked like we may get rained out, it turned out to be a super hot and sunny day. I know their guests appreciated some shade as much as I did.
Then, before we knew it cocktail hour was starting! Caitlin and Dan were able to join their guests and get a few photos with friends before we all went inside the beautiful barn for the real celebration. The reception was such a blast with plenty of dancing, once the sun set their guests were treated to a dessert bar and fire pit out on the patio. Caitlin and Dan’s wedding day was one we will remember for a long time! Congratulations you two!
