Heritage Hotel Wedding Southbury, CT – Jay & Kate

As I mentioned last week I’m going to be doing weekly posts to share some of the fantastic weddings and sessions I’ve had over the past year. And this wedding was nothing short of fantastic! Kate and Jay had a gorgeous spring wedding at the beautiful Heritage Hotel in Southbury, CT. I just adored their first look. Kate looked absolutely stunning and when Jay got a glimpse of her, it brought tears to his eyes!
It was my first time shooting at the Heritage and I was very impressed by the grounds and photo ops we found. The Heritage does a beautiful job curating the area they have set up for outdoor ceremonies. It made a great backdrop for the photos. Thank you Melissa Ball Photography for 2nd shooting this wedding and to Kate & Jay for allowing us to document their day!

Kate spent time collecting vintage brooches for all the bouquets. Each bridesmaid had a pin of their initial on the burlap of their flowers. I thought it was a special touch!

Kate’s dad was so sweet and supportive to her throughout the whole day. I don’t think he stopped smiling!
