We've been on an absolute roll lately with the gorgeous fall weddings... but how can you blame us!?!? With stunning affairs like this how can we go wrong?! Sent to us by the always fabulous Carla Ten Eyck, this vintage inspired Connecticut wedding is full of sophistication, classic touches, and a whole lot of romance...

From the beautiful bride, Marissa...

Michael and I got married at the Asylum Hill Congregational Church in Hartford, CT by Rev. Gary Miller.  I walked down the extremely long isle in a gorgeous dress by Anne Barge and a cathedral length veil with 4 inches of antique lace.  My dress has pockets... need I say more?!?!  I wanted a very vintage look as you'll see in our choice of the 1956 Cadillac from Black Swam Limousine and my antique fur stole.  The ceremony was beautiful but flew by so quickly, which is why we are so happy we chose the BEST photographer in all of CT and we're 99% sure she's the best in the world...Carla Ten Eyck and her crew took some amazing pictures that will remind us of just how happy and loved we are.

I'm completely enamored with the bride's accessories. The fur stole and the antique jewelry are sensible but still so elegant and add just the right amount of vintage-glam to her classic style.

We went to the City Hall in Hartford to take some unbelievable pictures (I'd like to take credit for how truly unbelievable they are but it was the work of Carla and her photographers along with a building that takes your breath away).  Next stop was the reception at The Hartford Society Room.  The food was amazing, the building is exquisite, and the band (Clarke Eno Orchestra) had everyone dancing the night away with their mix of the old (Sinatra) and new (Black Eyed Peas).

Michael and I could not have asked for a better way to begin our lives together. Everything ran smoothly and there is not one thing either of us would change except to do it all over again! A special thanks to Carla Ten Eyck and her photographers, Clarke Eno Orchestra, Dana Montanari at The Society Room, and Shear Artistry in Avon for an awesome job styling the bridal party!

Carla's style really adds to the vintage quality of the whole day. She completely captured the drama of each location and the pure joy of the couple. Congratulations to Marissa and Michael and a big thank you to Carla Ten Eyck for sending her always beautiful photographs our way!
