That's the impression that I get...

The impression, Oh, what an impression that it is. 

For Gina and JJ it was a night like no other. An entire day actually!!!

The weather was a beautiful spring day. The smiles were abundant. From our first meeting, I just knew that these two were awesome! And after their wedding day, I look back and know that I wasn't just spot on. I may have even been a little lacking with my thoughts. Because after the day, it became obvious that both their families, friends and entire wedding party is pretty darn awesome too!!!

And like many of my TAB couples, they're willing to just go along with it and make it happen and in doing so make it great!!!

I just know that from the colour changing center pieces to the hunt for all the keys (which I know also hunt for) it was a great experience for these two. And for Gina and JJ, we know you guys are just going to rock out each and every day together!!!

So with a throw down of a party, and the brightest of days, I look back and know that every moment was magical....

And then came the time of the evening when I begin to pack up. But if you want me to stick around, throw on some Bosstones or just about any other fun ska'ish music and I won't be going anywhere! Especially with you've got all this energy coming down from the Boston area as it is!!! 

So for this wedding, when I think back to Gina and JJ... It's the impression that I get which sums it all up......

Where it's at.....

Some would hear "where it's at"... And there mind would probably think "I got two turn tables and a microphone......" Understandable too, I mean this is my post and I'm thinking it. For those of you that don't, I'm sorry, but you're missing a great song. Okay, back on track now. 

Where it's at... In all honesty, it's at Collinsville. Small town New England living at it's best. We've got it all and I LOVE IT!!! 

This all stems from the Jamboree (a small town carnival in small town America) the other night. I simply love living in New England. I ain't going anywhere. I enjoy knowing so many that I see and enjoy them knowing me. That "we" (those of us that live in these parts) can run into so many smiling faces, everyone enjoying the evening as the kids frolic around and run from ride to ride, game to game. Wrapping up the evening with a fireworks show that just entrances me as the lights fill the sky and the echoes run up the river. Is it the most extravagant fireworks show I've seen, nah, but it still tops the list!

Small town living at it's finest! And there's no reason not to just smile, knowing that Collinsville is......

Where it's at. I got two turn tables and a microphone...............................

Lighthouse Point in New Haven by TAB Photographic Ct. Wedding Photographers

The wedding season is surely under way! And I LOVE IT!!! With that, comes many more teasers, posts and more. But these shots below strike a fun chord. Not only because Melissa and Scott are a great couple, but because Light House Point will have 3 weddings this year and it's such a great location because each one of those weddings will be completely different at the same location!!!

Some great decor rocked the building by Stems Flower Design ( and the shell theme was such a perfect fit!!!

And of course the lighthouse is part of the greatness...

But the carousel surely helps rock out the greatness!!!

So if it's a location that you can make unique to your day Light House Point in New Haven is surely a great choice!!!!

And the Cotton Candy. Well that's just an added benefit. ;)

And to wrap this post up, I want to share the below video / song. It's a great one for sure!!! Why am I sharing it, because I've realized that every wedding I shoot, there's a song that will bring me back to that certain wedding. Sometimes it's "their" song that was maybe to the first dance, other times not... But for Melissa and Scott, it was their first dance and is one of my favorite songs!!!! Like ever!

Keep it close...

There comes a time in life when all of us make decisions. Some are harder than others. At times, it's a decision to pull back from doing something that helped create the person you are. Is it easy, not at all. I've been there. And at times it's one of the hardest things you can do. 

The one thing to keep in mind is actually pretty simple. Just because you make the decision to no longer go in one direction. Doesn't mean that you have to completely let it go. After all, it's still inside. 

Much like when someone we love passes away, they are still with us. So often we are reminded of them, they shine down on us, or we just know that they are part of us. The same goes for when we make the decision to let that certain activity or something else go.... It's still a part of us........
