Pomfret Center Connecticut Farm Wedding Photography | Jay & Laura

I knew this was going to be a great wedding the minute we got the inquiry from Jay and Laura asking us to document their Pomfret Center, Connecticut wedding. I already loved how amazing this wedding sounded, then I found out that my good friend and colleague Eric Laurits recommended me. Being the amazing person he is he naturally attracts wonderful people and after our first phone meeting with the couple it was a match made in heaven. Since I consider myself a family historian of sorts the fact that Laura and Jay were getting married at the farm house dating back three generations that she visited as a child made this wedding even more appealing. Add to the fact that multiple family members, including her parents, married there as well just sealed the deal for me. This was right up my alley and it did not disappoint. Everything about this event was how it should be in my opinion. Simple, laid back, and meaningful.

Laura remembers as child sitting with her Grandmother and watching the birds outside on the farm. This hummingbird kept coming back to the tree just outside where Laura was getting ready.

I loved being able to wander the house and catch family members doing their part to get the event ready all the while preserving what this house represents.

135_B_minor_abbott_wdPerhaps my favorite thing and ultimately my goal at every wedding is to capture subtle things that end up being memorable. As soon as we got in the car after the wedding Laura said how much she loved being able to hold Jay’s hand during the ceremony. I was silently grinning in the back seat knowing I had a photo of that.  143_B_minor_abbott_wd
