Portland CT Wedding at Saint Clements Castle.” Boho meets elegance”

Nothing gets me more excited than a magically in-love boho bride! Check out what Sammy had to say about her experience being a #michellewadebride

” We used Michelle for our engagement pictures and wedding day pictures. We are in love with all of her work! She did such an amazing job and strives to make you look perfect! My husband hates taking pictures but Michelle made it easy and natural and he ended up having a great time. Michelle is so easy to work with and went above and beyond to make our dreams come true! We definitely recommend Michelle and hope to work with her again in the future.” – Sammy Ballas

Girls just want to have fun!

I photographed Sammy & Tyler’s wedding this summer and I have to say it goes down in the books as one of my favorites to date! Every aspect of Sammy’s bridal details was unique from Her braided hair by Larissa Lake -which was accented with floral buds throughout by Candi’s Floral Creations – to her blingy belt from Etsy. It truly was the perfect combination for this elegant boho bride. The love between these two was INSANE! When Tyler broke down showing his emotions during the ceremony, it was almost impossible for me to hold tears back. This is PROOF that a first look doesn’t “take away” from that magical moment of walking down the aisle and “seeing each other” for the first time. If you’re pup lover -who isn’t- then you will appreciate the fact that they had their special little woofer “Frankie” along for the entire ceremony. (I’ve been seeing more and more weddings where my Bride and Grooms’ opt-in to include their dogs.) It adds such a personal little touch to the ceremony and wedding photos! At Saint Clements Castle everything ran smoothly and we had so much fun photographing this wedding, as an added bonus my friend and associate photographer Janine from Bella Blue came with me as a backup 2nd shooter which added to the day with her bright personality. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for this lovely couple and I look forward to future photo-shoots when embarking on the journey of a growing family. 😉
