Samantha + Dan: Married

Dan & Samantha. Samantha & Dan. No matter the order, these two people were meant to be together.

Samantha contacted me early this year about her August wedding to the love of her life. Sam was in Texas and Dan was in Afghanistan so planning a Connecticut wedding was a little trickier than most but she had lots of lovely details planned for her day and knew what was most important: having Dan home and being surrounded by their family and friends.

Their ceremony was held at St. Stanislaus Church in New Haven, which was not only a beautiful church but Dan was the 4th generation to be married there. Gives me goose bumps just thinking about it. Following their ceremony we made our way to the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme for portraits, games, Big Green Truck pizza and lots of love.

It was an honor for me to capture such a special day for these two lovely people and their beloved families and friends. Thank you Samantha and Dan for allowing me to be witness to your love, it was an amazing day!

A big thank you to the talented Meg Hamilton for capturing so many wonderful moments and beautiful details, you're the best. Please join me in congratulating Dan & Samantha and celebrating this day in their love story.  xoxo, Sandra
