Modern Strings trio played at my wedding on June 28, 2024 - they were absolutely magnificent!! From the second I booked my venue, I knew the very first vendor I had to book was Modern Strings. I had followed Modern Strings for some time and knew it was the most important vendor for me to have! Modern Strings played for my ceremony as well as cocktail hour. They set the stage for an emotional, elegant ceremony; then followed by a beautiful upbeat cocktail hour. Our guests were floored by the modern music played on string instruments. Our wedding was everything we could have ever dreamed of and we have Modern Strings to thank for being such a special part of our day! P.S. Peep the emotion on my face walking down the aisle; the music really let us feel so in the moment of an incredibly special celebration!

Moubarak was our videographer on the wedding day. I would like to thank him for taking care of us. He isn’t very talkative but he makes sure to take care of the business. Made it easy for us by the way he direct us. My husband and I aren’t models or ever modeled before make he make sure our video shoot isn’t too scripted, just natural, playful and romantic. If getting married so something you do every month then Raynae Motion will definitely be my go to.

  • Up to 550 guests

For nearly four decades and across three generations, Anthony’s Ocean View has been a labor of love, from our family to yours. This stunning Connecticut location is ideal for weddings, galas, birthdays, or any reason to celebrate. Anthony’s Ocean View makes it all possible by working with our experienced event team. From parties to grand affairs, virtually any group and occasion can be seamlessly accommodated!

I had my wedding at Anthony’s Ocean View. It was amazing and well worth every penny. Brian and Marcello are the best! I will say, the only negative aspect is that I was under the impression that only 1 wedding happened at a time - there was another wedding happening right next to us. This impacted our music, our photos and my speech was cut off because the other weddings music was so loud that the floor vibrated and I had to ask staff to do something. Other than that, the venue was beautiful, so accommodating, and food was absolutely fantastic. Would recommend Anthony’s to anyone.

The granddaughter of two gardeners, I have always felt a connection to the earth through the soil. When someone brings flowers into a room, something changes...an energy, an excitement! I love being able to bring that kind of beauty into peoples lives. I'm a small-town girl who enjoys anything that involves working with my hands from cooking to knitting. I'm a total animal lover (partial to dogs), a die-hard Grey's Anatomy fan, and I take my martinis extra dirty. When I'm not flowering in our studio in Milford, Connecticut, I'm mommin' to three amazing little boys (our dog Pippa and cat, Galaxy).

Awarded Best of Zola
When I first saw my wedding bouquet I was speechless! It was nothing like any other bouquet I had seen in the absolute best way! The flowers were gorgeous, vibrant, and truly unique, just like I wanted! Kate has such a keen ability to take inspiration photos, run with them, and create something incredibly gorgeous and in line with my vision. The florals she designed brought a lovely pop of color to our reception and pulled the natural look from the landscape into the space exactly like I envisioned. From little details like "snap-bracelet" corsages for the moms to a color-coordinating ribbon on the boutonnieres, Kate totally knocked it out of the park!

Makeup has always been a passion of mine, ever since I was little you could find me doing my mom, little sister, and grandma's hair and makeup. I always wanted a career in the industry but never thought it was attainable.

Aleks and her team are so professional and easy to work with. Aleks was helpful during and after the makeup trial we had. She was very supportive when my skin was having issues and was able to provide very helpful advice when I reached out to her about it. She asked me questions about my skin care and was able to recommend some things to try to sort out my skin issues before the big day. The day of the wedding, my vision was brought to life from my hair to my makeup! My skin was glowing! And she made sure my bridesmaids loved their looks too! 10/10 would recommend!

The Lake House was phenomenal to work with. Getting married during a pandemic is stressful enough, but Paul and his team really made it as stress free as possible! The facility is lovely; large, classy, clean, and inviting. The staff was also friendly and courteous, and the food was absolutely fantastic! Carole the banquet manager took care of everything the day of my wedding so I did not have to worry about a thing! If I had any questions or a problem, Paul was quick to reply and even called me when necessary to make sure that our wedding went exactly the way we wanted it to. The flexibility of The Lake House was also great, I was able to make day-of decisions regarding an outdoor wedding and placement of decorations. What I also liked is ours was the only wedding that day, so we were able to use the whole facility, and the staff was dedicated to us the entire evening!

Woodwinds 

4.3

Branford, CT
  • Venue
  • Up to 600 guests
  • All-inclusive
  • Indoor & outdoor
  • Starts at $110

WoodWinds is one of the most sought after Connecticut wedding venues for wedding receptions, banquets, corporate events or any special occasion, in the Tri-State area. A wedding in our impressive European Country Manor will reflect your personal vision. Imagine a magical experience, enhanced by a unique ceremony and reception on the beautiful grounds of WoodWinds. Envision standing on a grand staircase under the twinkle of Austrian Crystal chandeliers, taking pictures in a magnificent garden and dancing the night away on a marble dance floor.

The Woodwinds made my dreams a reality… When we first walked into the woodwinds and met Vanessa, we were blown away by the staircase. I immediately could picture my fiancé and I taking pictures there with our wedding party. As we walked through vanessa painted such a beautiful picture of what our day would look like and how easy everything would be. We were told “all you need is a DJ, Photographer, and JP and we take care of the rest” they were not kidding. I mean we actually had someone the night of our wedding basically thinking for us. He was like a tour guide taking us step by step through our night. The entire process from booking to partying was absolutely seamless. Vanessa toured us, answered all of our questions, even my moms questions while we face timed her during our tour, and helped us with the contract so we could lock in our date for this beautiful venue. Once we had our date, Michael took over and I must say… he rocks!!!!!! He is like a floorplan guru. We explained where we wanted everything and as we spoke he was rearranging everything live. We wanted to do a memorial table, photo booth, welcome table, favor table and he just had space for everything. FYI they have this thing called the MTA…it is a lifesaver. As we got our RSVP’s in, it was so overwhelming, but Michael was to the rescue and when I called him he sent it right over and explained it and having a space to organize our RSVP’s and what meals each guest were getting was so helpful. The best part is when I started getting those calls…”oh don’t sit me with Joann”…it was so easy to drag them to another table. All the woodwinds staff was so knowledgeable about the venue and the food. I didn’t know what to write on our invitation cards for meal selections so I called them up and Kate answered and knew what every food dish was and explained it in such detail I was starving after the conversation. The planning team was impeccable…the night of our wedding was just as smooth and its almost like all the employees were sitting in our meetings and phone calls because they all knew exactly what we wanted, where all the decorations went, even down to what my favorite drink was so I never had to ask. I’m so happy we got married at woodwinds and they made our dreams come true. We could not have asked for a better experience and we may have to start doing anniversary parties just to go back!!!

Allow passion and 10+ years of experience in the beauty industry to help bring your visions to life! We style for weddings, everyday, and special occasion makeup. Let's chat more and see how I can help make your wedding day feel as effortless as possible.

Awarded Best of Zola
After scouring Instagram for someone who’s hair and makeup style matched our simple yet elegant aesthetic, we booked Dana for our June 2023 wedding. Dana did hair and makeup for both of us (two brides) as well as hair for my wife’s mother. Dana particularly excelled at listening to our visions and bringing them to life. During our trials (which we do recommend), we brought in pictures of hairstyles for inspiration, and Dana was able to easily recreate them knowing how exactly to work with our individual hair texture and style. Also, neither of us wear much makeup (I don’t wear any), and Dana was able to achieve the “natural” or “soft-glam” look very well, which was what we both wanted. We felt that most other makeup artists we looked at went too far even with the “soft-glam” style. Dana was perhaps the most organized of all the vendors we worked with for our wedding. During each of our trials, she took incredibly detailed notes, brought them with her the day of our wedding, and followed them exactly. While it’s impossible to recreate your trial look 100% perfectly, what Dana did was closer than we ever expected. In addition, she helped us craft the perfect getting ready schedule for the morning of our wedding, and stuck to it, so we didn’t feel stressed or rushed and actually enjoyed the process! While we were a small “bridal party” and worked with only Dana herself, something Dana mentioned is that she never brings in other hair or makeup artists unless she trusts them and their work completely. That instilled confidence in us that her quality standard was really high, and her performance confirmed that. Her confidence made us confident! Our hair and makeup looked almost perfect at the end of the day after an outdoor ceremony in the wind and 4 hours of running around and dancing. We were super impressed. We have absolutely no reservations in recommending Dana for your wedding day. Make sure you follow her instructions on how to prep your face/hair and design the getting ready schedule for your wedding and you’ll have a great time!

Erica and her team were incredible. Starting from our engagement photos (which we loved!) Erica worked to get us more comfortable in front of the camera and ready for our wedding day. In between then and the event, she was communicative, supportive, and available. On the day itself she brought her usual AMAZING energy that made us feel at ease, and impressed our whole family with her ability to organize, get the shots, and let us get back to the party! I would also be remiss if I didn't mention the incredible team she brought with her. Not only did they match her positive and upbeat energy, but they helped capture some amazing moments for us and our family. I find myself returning to our online albums every few weeks and liking a few more pictures each time that "I can't believe I missed". I am so grateful we had Erica as our photographer and look forward to years of looking back at these pictures and reliving the joy she captured.

At every wedding, I'm constantly alert to the small moments that make a day unique: a father's kiss, an heirloom kerchief, a ring bearer getting licked by the groom's dog. I see beauty everywhere on a wedding day. I spend the entire day smiling. My face usually hurts on my drive home ;)! Although I'm primarily photojournalistic in style, I know how to take charge for posed portraits. I've been a photographer full-time for over ten years, and I can be quick and efficient for group shots, so you can get back to your party! I also love sneaking you two away for some lovely portraits when the light is perfect.

Stephanie is a wonderful photographer. From the first moment I contacted her to receiving my pictures and Wedding book, I had a such a wonderful experience. Stephanie has an ability like no other. Her presence is one that brings you a calmness, which on your wedding day you will appreciate! When I look at my wedding pictures, I can still smell the fragrance of the food we ate, the emotions I was feeling, and the way the sun and air felt on my face. Stephanie did that. She captured all those little things that are so important and magical. If my house had more walls they would be filled with her photographs.

A magnificent, breathtaking landmark, Bill Miller’s Castle has served as an elegant venue for weddings, corporate events, and special occasions. Meticulous attention to detail, natural stonework, exposed reclaimed beams, an antique bronze bell weighing more than one ton, and rare antique furniture create a beautiful backdrop for any event or special occasion. Featuring five working field-stone fireplaces, three-story cathedral ceilings, ornate stained glass windows, crystal chandeliers, and a large dance floor; the grandeur of Bill Miller’s Castle will make your guests feel truly extraordinary from the moment they walk through the door.

We had the most magical experience at Bill Millers Castle. They made the day everything we could have dreamed and more. Every detail was perfect, the food was phenomenal, and they scheduled everything to run smoothly without making us feel like we were stuck to a schedule. We were able to relax and enjoy the day without worry that something was not done or would not be ready. We had every one of our guests tell us it was the best wedding they have ever been too. (and as we are not a young couple most of them have been to a lot of wedding's). Not only was the experience of the day the most amazing, the planning and communication leading up to the day was phenomenal. Victoria was very easy to reach, answered all of our questions, and helped guide us through the process always having tips for us to make sure we got what we wanted. Thank you to Bill Millers Castle for the most amazing day.

My floral and illustrative art forms compliment and inspire each other as flowers and plants often become subject matter for my illustrations and my fundamentals in composition and design help influence my floral work.

Lauren designed and provided the flowers for my wedding in September of 2018 and after that experience I would say she is incredibly talented and was amazing to work with! In one consultation she understood the vibe and theme I was going for and over delivered!! Also price wise it was an awesome deal for the quality of work you receive!

We wish we could give SKBT 1000 stars! This company, the owner Karen, and her staff are ABSOULTELY incredible! For our small outdoor wedding, I am still very concerned about COVID and her staff was so considerate to keep their masks on the entire time (both inside and outside in the heat). The staff was so incredibly kind and attentive. They made me feel SO special on my day, bringing me extra appetizers and sneaking me an extra spoonful of their delicious chocolate mousse! They were so incredibly professional and offered to help with tasks that were not even in their job description (like loading up drink coolers and putting out desserts we had purchased). They truly went above and beyond! It is clear Karen is close with her staff, because they all have such a positive demeanor that was contagious and really kept things upbeat! And the food- INCREDIBLE! I am so picky when it comes to food and my husband has food allergies. We needed everything to be gluten free, and SKBT was so attentive and considerate of these restrictions. The flavor and presentation of the food was AMAZING! My husband and I ended up eating our own meal and splitting one (I am obsessed with Karen's cauliflower steak!) I was SO full from the night because everything from the appetizers, to the meal, to the desserts was impeccable. Really the most delicious food I've ever had! The night of our wedding and most of the next day, 90% of the conversation with my husband and our family was about SKBT and how incredibly delicious their food was and their amazing service. We plan on ordering from SKBT for any function we have in the future, as well as on our anniversary every year (and dinners in between!) We are sad that our wedding is over, but are SO looking forward to using SKBT again in the future. Karen is truly a gem- she is INCREDIBLY talented, is so kind, and it is clear she dedicates her all to SKBT. We are so thankful to have had this catering company for our wedding- they truly made the day that much more special and the day would not have been the same without them! Thank you Karen and your amazing staff, you really made our wedding a day we will never forget! :)

Hi I'm Jackie, and I literally love my job! I’m a New England-based photographer for the last 18 years. I have to admit though, I love taking this one woman show on the road and travel makes me the happiest. I have been lucky enough to shoot destination weddings in England, Iceland, and Alaska. I would describe my photography style as very laid back and natural. The little in between moments make for the best photos, and I’m not about capturing awkward prom poses and forced smiles. I want the real stuff - the stuff that’ll make you laugh till your cheeks hurt and will make your heart beat faster.

Jackie was absolutely wonderful working with us, especially with changes due to COVID. She was so understanding and thoughtful that it really made any problems we faced with COVID that much easier. She will put in more time and effort than needed and it will show because our photos came out stunning. I am absolutely in love with them. She will make sure what you want is taken care of and then go above and beyond. I cannot even tell you how easy she made our wedding day. We had no worries when it came to our photos! I would recommend her to everyone!

But he captured life- he captured the moments of my wedding. The pictures have facial expressions because he took the pictures in a natural state. He was able to create a still frame of moments that now i can recall for the rest of my life. The whole experience was warm and organic- we communicated prior and he guided me through the plan.

I’m a husband, a dad, and a photographer. I love spending time with my family and cannot get enough of my kids. If I could dance and be silly with them all day long, that’s what I’d do. It could be the Frozen soundtrack or 90’s hip-hop, either will work. I’m easily lost listening to music (I use to be a battle DJ). Exploring and be adventurous are good things. I’m always thinking of the next destination and where we can go. It doesn’t have to be a big trip. It could be down a country road, driving by the horse farm, around the corner from my house. I’m a dreamer.

Awarded Best of Zola
My wife and I first met Tim to do an engagement shoot back in the fall of 2019. Having an unexpectedly long engagement and multiple wedding dates due to the pandemic, we were able to have our dream wedding weekend this past May and Tim played a massive role in not only making this happen but capturing the weekend in its entirety for us to cherish and remember. Tim was exceptionally professional in working with us during the chaos of rescheduling not once, but twice and we are so fortunate to have worked with him. He is extremely talented behind the camera and just a great guy all around -- he has the ability to truly ‘improv’ and make quick changes on the fly based on his surroundings and the changing light that he is working with, which makes for a fun, dynamic experience as opposed to very static and staged pictures. He is also just very amicable and easy to get along with, which makes the entire experience that much better. We could not be happier with how our engagement and wedding photos turned out and recommend Tim to anyone!

With over 25 years of experience, over 200 hires on similar online platforms and more than 100 5 star reviews Dennis Nardella is rated a “Top Pro” for a reason. Every Client is different. I spend personal time meeting with each and every client working on a personal level to understand their needs and requests so their event is "their" event. I will put in the time that is needed to be certain your event is a success.

Dennis is the best DJ ever!!! My husband and I were absolutely blown away by how fantastic he was for our wedding. He put on a SHOW! There was a fog machine, up lights, and an entire light show, and microphones to sing along that kept everyone on the dance floor all night long! Dennis has an awesome personality and is a blast to work with. On the wedding day he did just the right amount of talking and was able to really feel the vibe of the night and play music accordingly. So many people commented that they thought I had given him the playlist because he matched the type of music we wanted so perfectly! Dennis played a great combination of music that had guests of all ages enjoying the wedding and saying it was the most fun wedding they’ve ever been to. He was also able to get almost everyone at the wedding into a conga line! He was extremely flexible and more than willing to do help us coordinate many unique items throughout the night (shoe game, husband singing live, “father daughter dance mash up, table dash, reverse anniversary dance). We had a difficult and unique timeline compared to most weddings due to it being a backyard wedding with a not so strict timeline, and two ceremonies (an American ceremony and a Moroccan ceremony) each requiring their own music. Throughout the day, Dennis was flexible and coordinated seamlessly with our other vendors to adjust the timeline when we were running late and made sure it worked for everyone. He knew the best times to do all of the events at the reception and we were easily able to extend him for an hour on the day of the wedding when we realized everyone was having such a good time and we didn’t want the party to end! Dennis was extremely helpful throughout the whole planning process by getting an idea of the type of music we liked and then offering suggestions he thought we would like. He was spot on and made the whole process of selecting music for the whole wedding (so many more songs than I would have anticipated) so easy and ensured we loved what we picked, giving us time to make decisions without us feeling rushed, while also making sure we were getting him the information he needed when he needed it. He always gave his advice but let us have the final say. Dennis went above and beyond the responsibilities of a DJ and dived in to help make our wedding special. When my husband wanted to have me walk down the aisle to a recording of him singing and playing the guitar, Dennis offered his own studio to him to record. My husband was not able to take him up on the offer since we live out of state, but when he sent Dennis a phone recording, without asking, Dennis took it upon himself to do a bit of editing to make the song even more beautiful. When my husband told Dennis he wanted to play the guitar and sing live at the reception, Dennis brought his own music stand and set up everything. He made a fun mashup of songs I requested for my father daughter dance. Instead of table numbers, we named out tables different Moroccan city names. Dennis looked up fun facts about each city that he announced as guests went to the buffet to get their food. Dennis puts his heart and soul into each wedding and it truly shows. Dennis – we truly can’t thank you enough for giving us and our guests such an amazing and fun night. From us to my grandparents to my college friends to my husband’s Moroccan family members who came from Morocco to attend, you gave everyone a night they will never forget!

I’m a full-time wedding photographer currently based in Central Connecticut. I love traveling, Thai food, all dogs, almost every type of music, and pretty much anything related to astronomy. Talking about myself has always been a little weird for me because I love hearing about you. My couples become my friends instantly, no really – as soon as we have our first chat together it’s DONE. BFFs for life. Be prepared for creating secret handshakes, inside jokes, and a ton of memories together!

Kelsey is beyond talented at capturing genuine moments and making them look incredible. She became a quick friend while also remaining professional. I can’t imagine working with anyone else for our wedding and I will absolutely shoot with her again in the future! Highly recommend working with Kelsey!!!

Welcome! Yay, you're engaged! Thank you so much for considering Weddings by Regina Marie! We are a Connecticut Wedding Planning company based in Middlebury, CT and serving all of New England. I started this company from my passion helping others have the most amazing day ever. My goal is to take on the logistical challenges so that you can focus on the things that really matter in your life. On your wedding day, let me handle the behind-the-scenes details so that you (and your parents and wedding party) can enjoy time with the people who've come from all over to share your special day with you.

Regina is one of my favorite wedding planners to work with. She maintains great relationships with her clients and vendor teams; she's got things covered but doesn't create more work or stress for anyone; and she is a calm problem solver in the midst of what can be a hectic day. She is unflappable and laid-back while being incredibly type A and professional. I always know people are in great hands when they're working with Regina.

Growing up near cameras, flashes and lenses, my father was a photographer for a newspaper, and I loved developing photos with him in his darkroom. For the last few years, I have launched CC Garvie Photography and could not be happier--I love it ! Every new project is another exciting adventure, as I continue to develop my vision. I love capturing those precious moments, so we can look back one day and say, "wow look at that, remember when we took that photo?" That is photography to me, "preservation". And once you look back at those memories--the warm and fuzzy feelings we get in our hearts--it is priceless. Let me do that for you.

My husband and I hired Cece for our September wedding and we could not have been happier with her services and her talent! Our photos came out beautiful! She was very communicative with us, professional, and so easy to work with. Honestly, if we ever need professional pictures down the road it will be with Cece.

  • Starts at $4,000

Our favorite photos are the ones that show your true selves, the ones where you are caught off guard, where you aren't paying attention to us running around, hiding behind bushes to get the frame, laying on the ground to change the angle. When we aren't taking photos we are dreaming of taking photos. We're married! We have a few kids too! We're creative, quirky, lovers of inspiration.

I don’t even know where to begin. To put it simply, Julianna and Noah are the BEST! They literally do it all - from wedding pep talks, jokes to keep you laughing through the stress of the day, managing our rather large family for photos, keeping everything fun and enjoyable, to creating insanely beautiful and unique photos. We couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with or for more incredible photos to remember our special day. We hope to get the chance to work with them again in the future!

Oh, hey! I’m Dana. I am a free-spirit with a true love for connection and raw emotion. I’ve been known to get caught up in the experience and have a passion for storytelling, so my photography is candid and emotive. I’m also a sucker for a gorgeous, natural backdrop so there’s nothing better than capturing an honest moment with a killer landscape. ​ When I don’t have a camera in my hand or a client on the therapy couch, I’m busy being a Mom to twins and wife to my partner, Brandi. You can also find me decorating our home or researching our next spontaneous adventure.

We have been using Dana for about 2 years now, and she has photographed myself and family from fall portraits to a surprise vow renewals and continuously leaves us speechless with every ‘unveiling’. Dana is easy to work with. Her sessions are effortless and honestly most times we all can’t stop laughing. Her eye for detail is spot on and her creativity in the moment is so much fun to be apart of. I highly recommend using Dana for your photography use because you will not be disappointed!

Hello and thanks for stopping by! My professional career as a Connecticut wedding photographer started nearly 20 years ago after attending photography school in Vancouver. I returned home to Milford, CT in 2000, started the business, and have been capturing wedding stories ever since!

My husband and I were so lucky to have Kevin at our wedding. He is a delight to work with, came up with ideas for our portraits and was a pleasure to have around. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We have only gotten a few photos back because we were only married 2 weeks ago, but I have no heistation in recomending him highly and without delay! He has a fresh, relaxed style. We were more interested in the "Money Shots" and candids than anything formal. Kevin did do some formal portait shots, so don't think that he won't if you want that, but we are really looking forward to our photos. He was wonderful to communicate with and could ot have been easier to work with. His prices are reasonable. You will be a lucky couple indeed if you can secure his services! Do not hesitate.

Hi There! My career as a hairstylist/freelance bridal stylist began a little over 10 years ago! Two years ago, I started my own business Tousled Wavz, and work as an independent artist at Meche Beauty Lounge. I love traveling for weddings, which is one of the reasons why I love my job! It allows me the opportunity to take in new sights and meet new people!

I had an amazing experience with Tracy! My maid of honor wanted a light, no make up look, and Tracy was able to do exactly that. I wanted I more made up look, and Tracy was able to pin point what I was looking. Our hair looked amazing! I have thin, fine hair and Tracy worked wonders with it. Tracy was even able to remove my veil and change out my hair accessories after the ceremony, and it took no time at all. I would work with Tracy again in a heartbeat. She listened to what each of us wanted and was able to cater to our different skin and hair types. My nerves were all over the place, and Tracy added such a calming presence to the day!
