On Sunday I assisted Carla Ten Eyck at Vince & Becky’s wedding in south western Connecticut. It was a great day although we sometimes got laughing so hard we couldn’t stop….we kind of feed off of each other’s humor.
We started the day at the salon where everyone got dolled up. Carla has the photos from our next stop – the deli. It was funny to see everyone’s expressions as they watched the veil go by – the photos look like they should be on a greeting card.
Vince and Becky got married at the Candlewood Inn in Brookfield, right on the shores of Candlewood lake.

Every detail of the wedding was coordinated to fit in with their beach theme.
The women wore beautiful black dresses with red accents – nicely set off by the flowers.
We did it!

This kid was a total ticket. He and his Brother were ring bearer/bell ringer for the ceremony (it was his Brother’s 9th birthday so Vince and Becky organized a cake to be brought out during dinner). Later in the evening while the band was playing he decided he wanted to get involved so he walked right up in front of the band. The quick thinking singer handed him a tambourine and for an hour he just happily played the tambourine and cow bell – organizing himself a chair when need be and standing and dancing at other times.
Another well planned detail – the names of tables were all beaches of some significance to the people sitting at those tables. The table that we ate at was named for the beach where Carla and her Husband got married and where Vince & Becky did their engagement shoot – Carla was so blown away and touched they remembered.
Carla – thanks for a great day – you rock!
