New Haven Lawn Club: New Haven, Connecticut: Nicole & Sal's Wedding

The way the storm clouds rolled in, it was clear pretty early on that there would be no significant break from the rain on Nicole & Sal’s wedding day. As she was getting ready that morning with her bridesmaids, the rain pounded on the windows, alternating between intense downpours and the kind of sideways sticky rain that even umbrellas can’t shield you from.  But inside that room, there was no hint of that dreariness. It was as though Nicole herself was a virtual ray of sunshine - her complete and total joy shining on everyone around her.

It was that radiance that had drawn Sal to Nicole in the first place and when he saw her for their first look, his face lit up too.  The two of them were beaming: Nicole with her irresistible, kid-on-Christmas-morning smile, Sal with his sly smile and incredible dimples.  From the first look to their ceremony and then out on the dance floor, they were completely connected.  Sal constantly reaching for her hand, Nicole draping her arms around his neck.  And as you watched the two of them, so completely in sync and head-over-heels in love, you could tell  that theirs would be a life together that could brave any storm and brighten even the rainiest of days.
