Chloe & Jason's Coast Guard Academy Wedding in New London, Connecticut
About a year ago, Chloe reached out to me about her fall wedding taking place here in Connecticut. Her fiance at the time was a member of the Coast Guard and they both lived in sunny California. After some time of getting to know each other, Chloe & Jason were excited to have me capture all the special moments of their wedding day. Their ceremony took place at the beautiful chapel at the Coast Guard Academy and their intimate reception dinner took place at the famous Tony D's in New London.
Chloe & Jason's wedding day started with Chloe arriving about an hour before Jason at the chapel. We walked amongst the crunchy leaves into the garden to take some bridal portraits. When it was time for Jason to arrive, Chloe hid to the back of the church so Jason wouldn't see her before the ceremony.
After we snapped a few photos of Jason in his snazzy dress blues, it was time for the ceremony to begin. Chloe's dear friend, Bob, walked her down the aisle. Jason's face instantly lit up as soon as he saw her walk towards him. It was truly something out of a fairy tale!
After a beautiful ceremony and their first kiss shared as Mr & Mrs, it was time to head back to the garden to take portraits. We strolled through the beautiful yellow, orange, and red trees. The leaves were blowing through the air. You could truly tell it was a beautiful fall day in New England. We made sure to stop by the waterfront area of the park. Chloe mentioned that the view looked just like a puzzle she has back home.
As the sun was starting to set, it was time to head to Tony D's to start their reception. Their guest count was only 18 people, so the reception was not only intimate, but fun! The room their reception was held at, was lit by candle and dim lights. Wine and champagne was served all around as laughter filled the air. After thoughtful toasts were given, it was time for Chloe & Jason to cut their cake. After each took a taste, they danced to their favorite Fleetwood Mac song in the center of the room. Everyone then enjoyed a delicious Italian dinner freshly prepared there at the restaurant.
Congratulations to the happy couple! Chloe, Jason, I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness! Thank you so much for having me apart of your beautiul wedding day!
