Liz and Ryan’s Wedding | Belle Haven Club | Greenwich, Connecticut

What could be more special than having the opportunity to photograph the beautiful wedding of Liz and Ryan at one of our favorite venues, the exquisite Belle Haven Club in Greenwich, Connecticut (special thanks, as always to Belle Haven’s own Hannah Elsaesser for welcoming us into her lovely “home”).  Add to that mix the amazing team of Sarah and Jess, two of our all-time favorite planners, from A Polished Plan, well then you know its going to be one unique and special day, and it was. What a gorgeous bride, Liz was (I’m sure you’ll agree), in her Monique Lhuillier gown, customized by our good friends at The Plumed Serpent Bridal. And talk about a fun loving group of friends and family. All in all, one truly extraordinary day and night.

And in the words of Liz and Ryan:  “Having grown up in Connecticut and having attended the same small college in Maine, you’d be surprised to hear that we didn’t start dating until life took us to New York City in 2010! At the time, Liz was working for a sports marketing firm and Ryan in asset management. Shortly after getting together, we found ourselves in London – Ryan for work and Liz for school – where we were lucky enough to travel the world, experience different cultures, see some amazing sporting events, and become closer than we had ever imagined.After getting engaged on Martha’s Vineyard during the summer of 2013 we had little idea of where we wanted to be married, but we knew we wanted a location that was convenient for friends and family and that reflected things we love as a couple! New England summers, the outdoors, the seaside and all things nautical. After spending time at Belle Haven Club, we knew it was the perfect place.It was the kind of August day you hope for, not too hot and no humidity. It was truly magical. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful venue. We were so overwhelmed with joy and are extremely thankful to everyone who made our day so incredible and to share the moment with loved ones”.

I, for one, am equally thankful that you choice to include me in your wedding celebration, Liz and Ryan. Congratulations, once again, to both of you!
