Last week I blogged one of my favorite weddings of all time! Julia & Matt's Guilford Yacht Club wedding was nothing short of spectacular, filled with beautiful florals, gorgeous sunlight and plenty of personal details. Aside from the precise attention to detail Julia and Matt had as they were planning their big day, what also made this one of my favorite weddings is the fact that Arturo was their videographer! It was so much fun to work alongside my husband as I clicked away and he documented so many beautiful moments. Today we're so excited to be sharing Julia and Matt's wedding video trailer with you! So sit back, relax and grab a tissue or two, because you'll definitely need it for their first look and more (I did!)!
I hope you enjoyed the wedding video trailer to this Guilford Yacht Club Wedding! Do you know Julia and Matt? Show the newlyweds some love by commenting below!

The last time Arturo and I visited Hawaii, I had the opportunity to photograph Cece & Caleb at Waialea Beach along the Kohala Coast! They are a perfect duo; I just adored how Caleb would gently brush Cece's face with his hand before pulling her in for a romantic kiss. You can instantly see the connection they share after spending only a few minutes with them!
This Yale University elopement may be one of the most colorful wedding days I've ever photographed!! There were so many aspects of this wedding that I loved, from the design to the stunning cake and more. What really got me was the chemistry that these beautiful souls had. Despite the chilly autumn day, they were up for anything!
Sammy and Mike met when she would frequent the restaurant and café, The Harborview Market in Bridgeport, Connecticut, which Mike's family owns. This past November, they were married at The Lace Factory, a beautiful wedding venue in Deep River, CT located along the Connecticut River. I don't think Sammy and Mike stopped smiling once the entire day, understandably so with all of the love that surrounded them!
It may have downpoured right before their ceremony, but there was no shortage of love and excitement on Beena and Ben's wedding day! They were married in the garden at the stunning Eolia Mansion at Harkness State Park in Waterford, Connecticut, surrounded by an intimate group of their closest family and friends. This wedding was a favorite of mine this past September, filled with gorgeous florals, plenty of stunning details and a couple who is madly in love!
Arianna and Vadim's wedding day was full of raw and organic emotion, from the sweet love notes they exchanged, to their first look, vows and other moments well into the evening. Their large bridal party, made up of family, friends and loved ones, cheered the couple on during the first look, making for some of my favorite candid moments of the day!
Nika and Javier exchanged beautiful vows of love and commitment in front of their family and friends during a candlelit ceremony at The Bedford Post Inn. If there's one thing I'm sure of, it's that Nika and Javier are a perfect match for each other! They compliment each other in more ways than I can count and share a beautiful love together!
Mollie and Drew celebrated their wedding day at Water's Edge Resort & Spa, a beautiful waterfront venue along the New England shoreline in Westbrook, Connecticut. It was a warm and unusually humid day for mid-September, but these two didn't let the higher-than-normal temperatures dampen their spirits!
I think Jacqui and Avery bring good weather with them wherever they go; we lucked out with a beautiful evening for their Boothe Memorial Park engagement session in Stratford last November, and an even more beautiful summer day for their wedding! They were married on a beautiful day in early July, surrounded by their family and friends! Their beach-themed wedding was a perfect compliment to the summer vibes of their day at Tashua Knolls in Trumbull, Connecticut.
Abby and Sam were married on a beautiful summer day in late June. They exchanged their vows in an adorable little church the New England coastal town of Groton, Connecticut. Sam and his family used to spend their summers here, so it made for the perfect location for him and Abby to tie the knot!
Lisa and Matt's wedding day went off without a hitch! It was a wonderful day with early fall-like temperatures and a beautiful clear blue sky. Their wedding was a special one for me because I was able to catch up with Lisa's sister and brother-in-law, Lauren and Nyle, one of my 2016 couples! Lisa and Lauren come from such a sweet family, and I was honored to capture the wedding days of both these lovely sisters!
