Liz & Dave - Fate or Coincidence?

From the moment that Liz first saw the beautiful Gothic-style chapel at Trinity College in Hartford, she knew that one day she would like to be married there.

What she didn't know was that she would meet her future husband at that same college - sooner than she thought!

Dave and Liz did not meet and start dating until their senior year at Trinity, despite the relatively small class size - their paths had simply not crossed until then... or had they?

Dave's on campus job was programming computerized locks - when one day he found himself in an administrative office that displayed photographs of each graduating class at Trinity, taken at freshman orientation. Curious to see his freshman self, Dave located himself in the photo, directly in the bottom right corner. He looked at the person to his right - the only person next to him in the photo - and who should it be? You guessed it - Liz.

He called her immediately to share this huge coincidence - neither of them had any recollection of meeting at the time of the photo. And the rest is history... of which I don't know much about other than they were, indeed, married at the beautiful Trinity College Chapel as Liz had once wished.

I love hearing stories like this - makes you feel like some things are truly "written in the stars".

Liz and Dave had a copy of the photo displayed at their reception (below) and encouraged guests to find them out of the hundreds of students pictured.

Here it is - there is Dave with the blonde spikes in the corner:

And here they are now!

Underneath the gorgeous blooming Magnolia - one of Liz's favorite spots on campus:

Always the Bridesmaid....NOW the Bride!

Two years ago this May, I photographed the lovely wedding of Vicki and her fiance, Mike. At the time Vicki's sister, Liz, was part of their wedding party. Tomorrow, Liz herself is the bride and I will once again be on hand to capture the events of the day. This is my first time doing a sibling's wedding and I am honored to have been asked back!

Liz and her finance, Dave, will be getting hitched at Trinity College in Hartford. I've never been there, but I hear that it is beautiful - from the looks of the photos online (thank you, Google Images) we will surely get some great shots.

Now, in honor of Liz's big day, let's take a look back to her sis' wedding:

The glowing Vicki:

There's Liz - hope she was taking notes:

Flashback: Laura & Cory

I met Laura and Cory at the beach in Milford by their apartment to take some photos as a little warm-up for their wedding - that was two years ago this September! I just heard from Laura (via my facebook page) last week and they have big news! They are expecting their first child - a girl! - in August.

In honor of their big news, I thought I would post a few photos from our session. I told Laura that I thought that we needed to go back to this same location with their new baby - ah, what can change in a couple of years!

Congrats Laura & Cory and good luck on your new adventure!

Love these next two:
