A Connors Center Wedding – Sandy & Christian

Sandy and Christian could not have asked for a nicer day for their wedding at The Connors Center. The Connors Center, if you are not familiar with it, is a “retreat” center attached to Boston College. But when I think of retreats, I think of rustic cabins in the woods, not this old mansion with lush gardens and incredible stone fences, stairs and archways. I had a great time photographing these two during their Portsmouth engagement session, and I was confident that the wedding would be more of the same… which was confirmed upon our arrive and we found Christian and the guys relaxing with drinks and cigars in one of the many patios! Inside, Sandy and the ladies were buzzing around making final preparations. The ladies were enjoying themselves too with champagne and lots of laughter. Their ceremony took place in the main garden, where Sandy got to walk down what will most definitely be the most impressive aisle I will see this year. The stairs! Wow! After the ceremony, Sandy and Cristian took a brief joy right in the classic Bentley before we stole away for a few portraits around the property. Back under the tent in the backyard, the band Honey Train, who is easily one of my favorite Boston bands, was getting ready to rock the reception. But before everyone could really cut loose, there were a few formalities still to be done, and dinner of course — highlighted by fish tacos and the best grilled cheese sandwiches possibly ever! Rest assured, when the music started it was awesome, and everyone did dance. It was a fantastic day, and I am very excited to share a glimpse of the good times below…
