Lake of Isles: North Stonington, CT: Shiela & Ryan's Wedding

We can’t say enough how much it means to us when a bride tells us that photos are one of the most important things to her. Shiela had told us that when we had first talked to her and then made that clear throughout her wedding day. From each beautiful detail to the locations she chose, Shiela had put so much thought and planning into making her day gorgeous.

Of course, as far as Ryan was concerned, there was nothing more beautiful that day than Shiela herself. As the music changed in the church right before she was about to walk down the aisle, a slow smile spread across Ryan’s face. When the back doors opened and Shiela appeared, their eyes were locked on one another and guests eyes filled with tears as they watched Ryan take Shiela’s hand and stand by her side on the altar.

From the moment we arrived, throughout the ceremony and a visit to Harkness Memorial State Park and through their reception, Shiela and Ryan’s natural chemistry and clear love for one another was just so much fun to photograph. Knowing just how important all of the images will be to them, made it such an honor to capture their joy.
