Everything about Roger and Nell’s wedding was warm and funny and poignant and loving and emotional and tearful and joyous all at once. With loss in their past and the fresh promises of new things to come, their wedding day forged a foundation for a lifetime, surrounded by a glorious tribe of family and friends. And, well, I did need a tissue at the ceremony.
You wouldn’t know they are freezing, would you!
They hosted a winter wedding reception at Stonington’s beautiful Saltwater Farms Vineyard, where the stark winter beauty of the grounds was the perfect backdrop to the warmth of the celebration inside.
And what a celebration it was!
Enjoy their slide show to the lilting bossa nova sounds of “Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars,” the English version of one of their favorite songs, Corcovado.
You’ve heard something a little similar around these parts before with a little “Girl from Ipanema.” I clearly can’t get enough of this sound!
P.S. Don’t you just LOVE Nell’s shoes? They should be in the Museum of Modern Art. Gorgeous.
Huge thanks to my associate photographers Steph Stevens of Steph Stevens Photo and Melissa Woodard for their amazing work!
