The Mansion at Bald Hill Wedding, Woodstock CT

I have had the HUGE honor of capturing a large majority of this incredible couples story- including their Harkness Park Proposal, and their engagement photos! Amber and James have the biggest hearts of anyone I've ever met. They'll literally move heaven and earth for the people they love, and that was beyond evident in the way those people came together to celebrate them at this Mansion at Bald Hill Wedding. From the wedding party including the kids, to the planning and care (And Amber's INSANE DIY skills!) that went into making this a special day for everyone that had the privilege of being there.

This Mansion at Bald Hill wedding started and ended with laughter and happy tears. The Game of Thrones details sprinkled throughout the day was the most perfect and unique touch for these GOT fans. It was super cool to see a Connecticut wedding bringing little bit of Westeros! The feeling of the day was all about excitement and anticipation leading up to the most well thought out ceremony that included a hand fasting ceremony symbolizing the joining of this family. Did I cry? Yes. Will I ever not cry at a ceremony for my couples? Probably not!

I couldn't think of a better setting that The Mansion at Bald Hill venue for this Game of Thrones inspired Connecticut wedding! The Mansion itself is the absolute embodiment of New England charm. The historical Bed and Breakfast room named Mr. Bowen's room served as the setting for Amber and her girls getting ready, complete with mimosas (is it even a wedding morning without mimosas?!), and plenty of room for hair and makeup and a photographer (me!) grabbing all the best shots of the morning.

The Mansion at Bald Hill wedding ceremony space is newly landscaped with an incredible trellis making a stunning entrance way for a stunning bride. For this spring wedding at the Mansion, the weeping cherry trees were in full force along with some of the best grass I've ever seen! It was super important to Amber that the cherry trees were in bloom, so we made sure to do their couples photos with the gorgeous pink flowers as a backdrop. You'll have to keep scrolling to see how they came out, but let me tell you- STUNNING!

The night ended with amazing food, speeches, and everyone on the dance floor tearing it up. If you know me, you know that means I was also out there and I HAD to do the wobble. I'm completely obsessed with James and Amber's Mansion at Bald Hill wedding, and I know you will be, too.
