Rebecca + Jake || Private Residence / Dauntless Club, Essex, CT

Guys. I genuinely don't even know where to start with this couple and this wedding. Rebecca and Jake got married at Jake's incredible childhood home, which was designed by his father, with boats drifting by on the river in the background. The setting was stunning, the ceremony was equal parts hilarious (including a demonstration by the groomsmen on how to silence your cell phones and how to exit the area to take an important call;)         ) and touching. After the ceremony and portraits, Becca and Jake drove their boat from the house to their reception at the Dauntless Club, just down the river! The vendors had all done an incredible job bringing their vision to life, and so the reception took place in a beautifully decorated tent, overlooking the sun setting over the river (and later, fireworks and a huge yellow moon), as the band played and the sweetest toasts were made and some awesome dance moves were revealed. This whole day was filled with such warm, friendly, wonderful people. I felt like a friend who just happened to have the good fortune of being there with a camera :).;) These two are one special couple, and I know they have an amazing future in front of them. Congrats Becca and Jake!!
