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! Eolia Mansion is definitely a new favorite wedding venue of mine located along the Connecticut coastline. Its expansive grounds provide endless options for romantic portraits while the architecture of the actual mansion bring a timeless beauty to each wedding hosted there.
Ben and Beena shared a beautiful first look, followed by bridal party portraits featuring the most adorable little flower girl. Their ceremony was short and sweet, officiated by one of their best friends, making for one of the many personal touches of their day! We caught the tail end of the sunset that peeked out from behind the clouds of the overcast evening sky for some perfectly romantic portraits before the real celebration started!
After sharing their first dance as husband and wife, Ben and Beena invited their guests onto the dance floor to share a few dances with them before the heartfelt speeches began. Their amazing band provided wonderful entertainment and kept people twisting and shaking all night long!
Congratulations to the New Mr. & Mrs!
I just LOVED Beena's Hayley Paige wedding gown!
The colors in all of the florals added such a beautiful pop to the day!
This adorable little flower girl was so proud of her manicure she got just for the wedding!
The grounds of this coastal wedding venue are just STUNNING! The beautiful architecture serves as such a unique backdrop to any photo!
Beena and Ben tied in several personal touches to their wedding day, my favorite of which was the little figures of the two of them with their little pup on the cake table!
