Sommar + Ben committed to a beautiful life of love, happiness, family, friendship and faith on a July 28th. They were married in the backyard of Ben’s parents home, right on the water in Chester, Connecticut. It was the perfect plot of land at a home that Ben cherished from his childhood.
Sommar and Ben were like yin and yang. The perfect blend of differences that could not have found a way to work better. Their love was so sincere and a lot of fun.
Sommar and Ben reside in Chicago, Illinois (where I used to live!) and they were getting married in Connecticut. We had a lot of fun working together to bring this dream back yard wedding to life!
The wedding day came and it could not have been more gorgeous. The ladies got ready at an adorable Bed and Breakfast called Tiny Tiffany’s home where they were served an afternoon tea. The gentlemen hung out at the house and watched the entire day come together.
Their ceremony archway was built by Sommar’s uncle. The details of his woodwork went beautifully with the backdrop and perfect white potted plants! Their wedding party consisted of 10 groomsmen and 10 bridesmaids. They had a lot of love and support with them on their wedding day.
One of the most important bridal party members was Franklin their sweet pup! He had a very important role that day - he wore a very cute floral collar and walked down the aisle.
Any time I get to see a dog in a wedding, I am a happy gal. :)
All the details to this day were ones you would not forget. During cocktail hour they had drinks cooling in a large boat, they had a cigar roller and an amazing live band! The dinner napkins were white vintage napkins and the farm tables were covered with lush deep greenery with gold accents throughout.
The reception was a blast, to say the least. It may have down poured during dinner service but the couple knew how to keep it fun! The groom went for an outfit change and came back wearing an all white velour jumpsuit with a shirt that said “Married AF”. LOL
Sommar & Ben finished out the night with a perfect sparkler exit and they will remember this night for years to come!
