Waveny Park Wedding | Connecticut

November 5, 2021

Kristen & Jeremy’s Waveny Park wedding was so dreamy in its beauty and simplicity, and an amazing example of a classical elopement and the spirit of “love conquers all” that we need to hear as we come out of the other side of this pandemic.

Kristen and Jeremy were set to be married on May 2nd, 2020, very shortly after the entire world had shut down. They immediately made plans to postpone their wedding until 2021 but still held out hope of being able to get married on their original wedding date. Fortunately, I was able to help them navigate local regulations regarding marriages under the Covid-19 shut downs and we planned their elopement in less than 2 weeks!

These two amazing humans are such good-natured and high-spirited people it was more like getting married in a pandemic was like a fun new adventure instead of them feeling any regrets about having to postpone (if they had them, it wasn’t readily apparent). They had their ceremony in their church with just their parents in physical attendance and a lot of happy zoom attendees.

After the church ceremony, we had planned to go do some portraits at Fort Stamford, but as luck would have it the tiny park was PACKED because it was the alignment of both the first nice weekend of the year and the first weekend that the Governor had eased restrictions on people being able to gather outside their homes.

So, we called an audible and made our way to the fabulous Waveny Park for wedding portraits instead, and I have zero regrets about that.

We started off exploring the grounds, gardens and lawns around the mansion, and then later headed out to the fields to get some more “in nature” photos.

I’m so happy I was able to provide this intimate elopement experience for these two amazing humans. In May 2021, Kristen and Jeremy had their big celebration with all their family and friends in attendance, and we chose to explore downtown Stamford’s harbor point for their portraits.
