John and Abbey met each other in college through their roommates at UCONN, and that sparked the beginning of forever for them! I had the pleasure of meeting up with them a few months back for coffee, and have been looking forward to capturing their wedding since. It was a bit warm out for their wedding day, but the benefit of an oceanfront location like the Samoset is that lovely ocean breeze! I showed up to everyone just relaxing and having a good time together as they got ready. Excitement was high, and everyone was ready to go! The whole day was great from start to finished, and I hope you enjoy reliving some of it through the photos. Thanks for coming!

With it being such a beautiful day, the ceremony was held down near the water, overlooking the iconic breakwater lighthouse.
A quick group shot with all the guests waving!
Abbey and John wrote their own vows, which is always a great touch!
The walk to the breakwater was extra amusing, with one of the bridesmaids getting a ride , and John needing a bit of a snack haha
The reception was held on the lawn outside of the Samoset. It had just started to cool off, so that everyone could enjoy cocktail hour and the beautiful views! After one of the wedding party members captured a group drone photo from above, everyone headed under the tent for the formal events. I’m glad I had a slight heads up about their first dance, because WOW, this was one for the books!
After the parent dances, we jumped in the golf cart to try and catch a little post sunset light!
Since John had driven his Camaro up for the wedding, we of course had to use it in some photos!
With all of the formal events complete, it was TIME TO PARTY!
As a wedding photographer, you know you aren’t close enough unless you have been kicked in the face on the dance floor…AND CAPTURED IT! haha
Thank you John and Abbey!
