Real Wedding: A Sparkling Winter’s Day

Shannon and Drew celebrated their wedding day on a beautiful winter’s day in New Haven, Connecticut. Kelly Kirkland Photography captured the classically styled event. The couple met through a mutual friend and after the first date, Shannon knew that Drew was the one! One February evening, Drew and Shannon were on their way to dinner when they made a detour to their favorite beach to see it covered in snow. That’s when Drew made an excuse to check the tire, got on one knee and proposed to his love! Of course, she said yes, which resulted in this stunning wedding celebration. For the venue, the couple wanted a place that was close to home for both of them, and so they chose the gorgeous St. Mary’s Church for the ceremony and the Grand Ballroom at the Omni Hotel. Shannon looked lovely in an A-line wedding gown, makeup by Shine Salon and loose curls complemented by a delicate, floor-length veil. The venues were decorated with beautiful white floral bouquets and holiday wreaths and garland designed by Fleur De Lys. Eta Music provided the music for the day and Julia’s Bakery designed the delicious wedding cake! Shannon and Drew’s traditional winter wedding and the photos from the event were filled with smiles and laughter, and Kelly Kirkland Photography did a splendid job capturing everyone’s happiness and love for the newlyweds.
