I'm so happy to share this post with everyone. Brooke and Rob were married at the Wee Burn Beach Club in Norwalk, CT this fall. I first met Brooke's amazing family while photographing her sister Kate's wedding. Fun, welcoming, photogenic and kind, they even lent me a sweater for Kate's ceremony (which was outside) when the weather turned suddenly colder than predicted. Armed with a sweater and coat this time, I didn't need either as Brooke and Rob's fall wedding weather proved to be perfect as the golden fall sunshine and blazing foliage in the portraits below demonstrates. Smiling all day, Brooke and Rob were lovely to watch (and document) as they took in and enjoyed their day. I almost cried during their first look! Special thanks to my dear friend, Lily Kesselman, for being my second shooter.

Brooke's words of wisdom to new brides to be ...
"Remember to enjoy the quiet moments with your groom, as the wedding planning will turn you into a person you don't exactly recognize."
Sage advice, but I didn't see a whit of anything but harmony between these two. Congrats to you both!
The entire bridal party and both families braved going on the rocks (the ladies in heals) above the crashing ocean during strong winds for the shots they wanted. There was one strong gust that almost brought this entire line down as they clutched onto one another!
Brooke's mum made these plates for the wedding. Each one featured a location special to the couple's story.
