“Getting ahead of the group, Prince Siegfried finds himself alone in a peaceful spot by an enchanted lake where swans gently float across its surface. While Siegfried watches, he spots the most beautiful swan with a crown on its head. His buddies soon catch up, but he orders them to leave so he can be by himself. As dusk falls, the swan with the crown turns into the most beautiful young woman he has ever seen. Her name is Odette, the Swan Princess. She informs the young prince that an evil sorcerer, Von Rothbart, who so happens to be disguised as Prince Siegfried’s mentor, has turned her and the other girls into swans and that the lake was formed by the tears of their parents’ weeping. She tells him that the only way the spell could be broken is if a man, pure in heart, pledges his love to her. The Prince, about to confess his love for her, is quickly interrupted by the evil sorcerer. He takes Odette from Prince Siegfried’s embrace and commands all of the swan maidens to dance upon the lake and its shore so that the prince cannot chase them. Prince Siegfried is left all alone on the shore of Swan Lake.”
The story of the beautiful Swan Princess and her Prince, as portrayed in Swan Lake, is the inspiration for our eight Sassy Princess Bride, The Swan Princess. Our beautiful bride found her prince on the shores of The Barns at Wesleyan Hills, and we made magic. Thank you to Krystalized Designs for her hair, makeup, and head wear skills, and Bliss Bridal for the beautiful dress our Swan Princess wore with grace. This particular Princess Bride is part of a smaller grouping within the series, without so much set and vendor details. There will be two more of these sorts of shoots, and one more full scale detailed production to finish the series. I look forward to creating more inspired magic to share with all of you, and have some very cool ideas in mind for the exhibition and publication of all this wonderfulness. Thank you to our perfect Swan Princess, and her handsome Prince, you two were perfect. She becomes a Swan at night, and by the morning, he has rescued her and there is love. Magic.

Krista has been a sassy fan from waaay back, one of my first family photoshoots, and has said ever since that I would photograph her wedding one day. When she came to sit on my sassy couch, in The Sassy Space last year, she sat right next to me, and we made it official. I absolutely would be her wedding photographer, no matter what, it was destined from the start. In our pre wedding day phone chat, she told me that she was way excited to marry Josh…and almost as excited to see me. Love Krista long time. Seriously. And what a beautiful person she is, inside and out, totally caring, and full of love, for all those around her and then some. She found some sort of amazing soul mate in Josh, who lights up a room almost as well as she does. Together they are a charismatic, endearing, wonderful couple, and it was our pleasure to photograph their wedding day! Ceremony and reception were both held at the Country House Restaurant in East Haven, CT. On my contract, I have a space to fill in wedding colors, themes, etc, Krista wrote “Yellow & purple, butterflies”, and I faintly remembered a Lakers mention too. She really nailed it, I loved the colors, the bouquets of Sunflowers (made by the bride and her peeps!) and how happy the guys were with their fitted caps.
A magical day, great people, thank you for having TJ and I there with you all!
Here are some of my favorites from the day. <3
