Kate and Brian {Meriden Wedding} Sneak Peek

Kate and Brian had the most amazing Meriden wedding!  We traveled all over Meriden, Connecticut on their wedding day to celebrate their love for each other.  Brian and Kate’s wedding photography included gorgeous and super fun venues, beautiful and kind people, breathtaking architecture, stunning skies, amazing details and so much love, laughter and friendship.

details in the ringsWe started their day by getting pictures of them getting ready in their family’s homes.  Kate and her ladies got ready at the home that she and Brian share, and Brian got ready with his guys at his childhood home where his parents still live.

Once everybody was ready, we headed over to the most beautiful church.  St. Stanislaus Catholic Church is absolutely breathtaking. The inside gold and the outside architecture is just so beautiful.  The priest led a wonderful ceremony.  After the mass, Mr. and Mrs. Cofrancesco took time to meet with each of their guests in front of the church.

Catholic church ceremonyAfter the ceremony, we got to travel all over for portraits.  If you and I have ever had a conversation about wedding photography, you know how much I love variety!  We started at the church and then we went over to a nearby park.  After the park, we also visited an ice cream shop (Yes, we did!) and Brian and Kate’s house.  At night, we also got some portraits at the converted library, where they had their reception.  I can’t wait to share more of these portraits with you all; be on the lookout for their full blog post!

Mr. and Mrs. Cofrancesco have a full blog post coming soon, but I couldn’t wait to share a little sneak peek of their All-Places-Meriden wedding!  Make sure you sign up to be notified when their full blog post is published.
