I first met Kerry & Pete back in May when we did their engagement shoot in downtown Hartford, CT. I had so much fun exploring Hartford with them and getting to know them! They told me about their plans for a somewhat non-traditional wedding at Barcelona Wine Bar in West Hartford, CT. What a cool spot! The decor is very modern with lots of cool wood and funky artwork and their food is phenomenal. They are such a fun couple and their wedding turned out to be a blast.
Ceremony: First Church of Christ Congregational, West Hartford, CT
Reception: Barcelona Wine Bar, West Hartford, CT
The day started with both the bride and groom getting ready in separate areas at the church.
Then the couple did a first look out in the courtyard. Pete was completely floored by how stunning his bride looked!
And their friends were pretty excited too!
Followed by a few formal photos in the courtyard.
And then everyone headed over to Barcelona Wine Bar for the reception. Guests were greeted by a massive hors d’oeuvres spread, indoor and outdoor lounge locations, and a sangria station!
Not to mention the Paella and Skirt Steak stations they offered for dinner. We took a few fun photos with the artwork at Barcelona and then the newlyweds danced the afternoon away!
