Celeste & PJ. Could there be a hotter couple or a better match for each other than these two? One thing for sure is that Vicki and I had an incredible time capturing them throughout their wedding day, from an emotional ceremony that had everyone tearing up (including us), to their exquisite details (including a late night cereal bar compliments of the incredibly talented team at Sixpence For Your Shoe) and the hilarious toasts. It was our first time shooting at The Loading Dock in Stamford, CT and we already can’t wait to go back there.
Described as “Industrial Chic”, it really is unlike any other location in CT. Large open rooms with exposed brick walls and wood floors framed the delicately beautiful floral arrangements by Stems Floral Design and the sophisticated table settings from Sixpence. We especially liked the chandelier in the Loading Dock’s entryway which gave us a great backdrop for photos with the happily married newlyweds. What’s even better about The Loading Dock is that it is run by Abigail Kirsch, so you know that the food is going to be amazing.
But back to Celeste & PJ! They not only are super gorgeous together, but they are both the sweetest, most down to earth people you would care to meet. It’s always fun photographing two people that are absolutely smitten with each other, and it was made even better due to the fact that they are so comfortable being in front of the camera (Celeste is a former WWE Diva & PJ is an accomplished bodybuilder). There wasn’t a moment where we had to tell them to do anything other than be themselves. It was a day that had us laughing, crying, and smiling throughout – thank you Celeste & PJ for letting us photograph your big day!
