Wedding Ceremony & Reception at The Woodswinds of Branford, CT

Hannah & Will’s weddings plans, like many 2020 couples, were changed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to social distancing rules and other restrictions, they had to reduce the size of the their wedding day. But luckily, they were able to have a ceremony and reception on their wedding day while meeting Covid-19 guidelines.

I was recommended to Hannah & Will by a mutual contact. Since Hannah & Will live out-of-state, my first time “meeting” them was over the phone. But from the moment I spoke with them, I could tell they were the exact couple I love to work with: kind, whole-hearted, and down-to-earth. They are the rare, authentic type of people that truly deserve each other. As I told them after their wedding: I’m sorry their wedding plans changed, but I’m grateful that those change of plans led us to meeting.

Here’s a look at the highlights from their wedding day. We started with brief getting-ready coverage before quickly starting their ceremony shortly after:

(I just love photos of couples with their grandparents!)

(And a little social distancing in this photo just in case! At this point, we weren’t sure of the virus’s currently infection rate. Luckily, about a week later it would be reported Connecticut had record low numbers of Covid-19.)
