Brooke and Toren were blessed with the most gorgeous day for their late October wedding at Three Chimneys Inn! As any New Englander knows, late October is a bit in the “danger” zone as far as wedding weather goes: it could be freezing, hot as blazes, or even snow. But these two got a perfect warm, sunny, fall day with leaves still on the trees! When Brooke and I first connected about her wedding, and she described her vision to me, I was so jazzed for all the vibrant colors. It didn’t disappoint. The alternating bridesmaids dresses against the navy suits was the perfect balance of fun and elegance that Brooke and Toren were looking to create!
Nestled among the trees like a little secret garden, their ceremony was moving. The processional begins at the bottom of the hill behind the gate and moves all the way up the stone path to the top of the hill. It’s a dramatic entrance and Toren’s smile couldn’t have been wider upon seeing Brooke and her dad walk through the gate. Plus I can’t forget the flower girls and ring bearer (who didn’t want to let go) that brought the day’s major dose of sweetness.
Brooke and Toren have such a powerful connection. The way they look at each other and laugh together is so special. There are hardly any photos where Toren’s gaze isn’t locked on Brooke. His gentle demeanor puts her at ease. And she’s just as smitten with him! I love how they reach for each other and hold on to each other and just be in the moment. They also know how to have FUN. Their reception was full of heartfelt, hilarious speeches, epic dance moves, and plenty of props to throw down with! All my love and congratulations to the newlyweds, who are lying on the beach enjoying their honeymoon as I type this!
