melissa + bill wedding at Cascade's



















Melissa is one of the most full of life brides I have ever had, let me just start there! Her sense of humor and positive energy are boundless and contagious. Jean and I had such a great time shooting the getting ready shots with her wonderful family and bridesmaids and had plenty of time to come up with some creative shots. I love the ring shot I was able to get and really wanted to put the rings in a book that was meaningful to them- so I told Melissa what I was going for and she grabbed her Mom's book that was by her bedside. It really boosted this image to another personal level and really went with the rest of their Chinese-themed wedding details. Their ceremony was at the very old and beautiful St. Mary's Church in New Haven following with a reception at Cascades in Hamden. We stopped around Yale for some really fun shots thanks to Melissa's friend- we got some really great locations, thanks again!! Congratulations Melissa & Bill!!
