When I was asked by Eileen Smith if I was available to photograph her eldest daughter, Cassie’s wedding to her longtime college sweetheart, Garrett, I was excited. You see Eileen Smith is a wedding planner whom I have worked with on numerous weddings, and over the years we have gotten to know one another. She’s lovely to work with, but I knew this would be special because she was planning her own daughter’s wedding.
The wedding was held at Angevine Christmas tree farm in Warren, CT. Eileen spent her childhood picking out her tree there while she was growing up, and continued the tradition with her own children. The families have known one another for over 40 years. It seemed like a natural spot for a beautiful wedding. Sentimental and stunning location= perfection. Not only was the day special on its own; but both Cassie & Garrett’s parents were married on the same date.
When I say that this was a special wedding, I mean it in many ways. It was joyful, full of a lot of laughing, family traditions, and celebrating the love of these two-amazing people; Cassie & Garrett. Please see the full vendor list below-and be sure to take a peek at the wedding video that Cassie’s cousin, Pete made for them. (link at bottom of page).
