Kerri + Jay – Wickham Park, Manchester, CT Wedding Photos

August 26th, 2008

Oh my. I am not even sure how to begin writing about this past Saturday’s wedding! First let me warn you that this is going to be a long post. It was an amazing day – perfect weather, and everyone looked so beautiful. Erik & I met up with Kerri & the ladies at the Courtyard Marriott in Manchester, CT.

Getting ready:


Putting on the dress:


Her gown is so beautiful:


LOVE this shot Erik took – reminds me of a still from an Italian film:


final touches:


Then we headed down to see what the guys were up to. Jay putting on his tie:


Here he is with the wedding bands! I like to get this shot – it it also my gentle reminder to the Groom that he may want to know where the rings are ; )


Jay was looking very handsome:


Then we met up with the ladies again. Here is Kerri looking amazing!!




One of the many cool personal touches of the day – Kerri made her bridesmaids these awesome “strap-on” knives – think Tomb Raider. It was one of the most awesome ideas ever! Check out these sexy bridesmaids and bride!


We headed to the ceremony & reception at Wickham Park in Manchester. It was my first time there, and it is such an amazing place for a wedding!

Kerri walking down the aisle:


Jay’s reaction:


They’re married!!


Then off for some formal portraits:



Jay had a place in mind for shooting more pictures – it was a little way into the woods….and SO worth the time it took to get there!

On our way there….


I am so glad Jay knew about this place – I LOVE bridges (and duck’s)!



And this pond – with an asian flair. My favorite of the day!


I love a little flare sometimes:


Back at the cabin, we were checking out the cake:


and some bling!


We loved the moose head in the cabin:


Another of Kerri & Jay’s awesome personal touches at the wedding – cutting the cake with a Samurai Sword!


The first dance:



I had an AMAZING time at this wedding – Erik & I have been talking about it for days now. Kerri & Jay thank you SO much for having us – I laughed and cried all day, and you guys are one amazing couple. Thank you to your family & friends for welcoming us and being amazing people. Love, Erik & Vicki

    Ok Vicki and Erik, you totally rocked this wedding. Where oh where do I start. I LOVE the sun flare shot, it is really gorgeous! The shot that Erik took that looked like it was from an Italian movie is awesome and the bride’s smile is really great. Oh yeah, I really love the 7th one down and the individuals of the bride and groom from above and the bridge shots. Ok, I am just going to come out and say it, I love them all!! What a fun day it looked like and such a wonderful couple. Great job both of you, they are going to love these!!

    Dear Vicki and Erik,

    You are both such amazing photographers. I can’t imagine Kerri and Jay’s Wedding day with anyone other than the two of you. You made the day complete with your presence and now to see the beauty of your work takes me back and makes me cry all over again. I am so glad that I also got a couple of you guys so that you will be with us forever.
    Thanks Marion
