I have been looking forward to getting this wedding on the blog since the day I photographed it! Arianna and Vadim shared a stunning wedding day with their family and friends at The Inn at Longshore in Westport, Connecticut on a beautiful September evening. The weather was perfect, giving us the most romantic golden hour sunlight after their ceremony! Coastal weddings are quickly becoming some of my favorites to photograph, partially due to the beautiful golden hours these venues receive!
You guys know I love color, but this wedding had so many moments that just fit perfectly in black and white! The day was full of raw and organic emotion, from the sweet love notes Arianna and Vadim exchanged, to their first look, wedding 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! As the evening came to a close, Arianna and Vadim shared a perfectly choreographed first dance which received a standing ovation from their wedding guests. These two are truly a match for each other, and I couldn't be happier for them!
Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs!
Arianna wrote Vadim the sweetest love note to accompany her wedding gifts to him!
I just adored Arianna's sweet reaction to seeing Vadim at their first look!
Look at those sweet smiles!
Don't Vadim and his guys look so dapper?!
Here comes the bride!
