The wedding day began as most do — in a gorgeous fashion with the pair getting ready to say “I do.” We love Tony Spinelli Photography’s attention to beautiful details. The bridesmaid and mother of the bride dresses hanging beautifully, the images of Jilly’s beautiful ring, and the sweet photo of the flower girls’ ballet flats. Naomi Studio and Salon worked their magic on Jill, and afterward, our blushing bride stepped into her incredible strapless a-line gown from The White Dress by the Shore. The peach and cream bouquets from Earth Blossoms for the bride and bridesmaids were the perfect compliment to the sparkling bridal party dresses. We loved seeing the beaming faces of the ladies before the vow exchange. While the smiles on their faces were incredible, we can’t forget the handsome groom. Ryan looked dapper in his crisp white shirt and deep grey suit. We love the photo of he and his groomsmen outside enjoy a beer before the big day began. It was clear from the smile on his face that he couldn’t wait for the ceremony.
To say that Jill & Ryan’s ceremony was a dream would be an understatement. The pair chose an incredibly gorgeous and traditional church wedding to officially become husband and wife. The grand ceremony venue added an element of grandeur to the big day that we love, but we must say that we adore the smiles on the bride and groom’s faces as they made their way back up the aisle the most.
Following their ceremony, the pair took a moment to capture some truly gorgeous images with Tony Spinelli Photography in beautiful downtown Hartford. We love the way the pair embraced the beauty of the city while celebrating their wedding, and the images were a perfect way to introduce the grand Society Room of Hartford. With such a spectacular venue, the pair kept things simple with beautiful, neutral colored, floral centerpieces from Earth Blossoms, and one of our favorite details was the signature drink board that added a fun flair to the elegant reception. Cakes by Donna helped the pair celebrate with a stunning cake complete with florals, and DJ Mike Connelly had the couple and their guests dancing until the end of the evening. Thankfully, Everett Freeman Visual Productions LLC was there to capture the entire big day.
We adored this romantic and elegant downtown Hartford affair, and we’re so happy that we’re able to share it with you!
