Sherena + Earnest | Cascade, Hamden CT Wedding

July 31, 2012

I love it when brides are soo excited about their wedding details that they share everything they’re doing. Throughout the planning process, I would get random emails from Sherena about ideas for her wedding and she surely didn’t dissapoint! Everything came together beautifully on a bright sunny Sunday afternon as Sherena and Earnest said their I do’s in front of family and friends.

Earnest and Sherena, thank you for the opportunity to share your special day with you! Here are some of my favorites from the wedding, and be sure to check out their SLIDESHOW for more photos of their amazing day!

    Oh, wow Sherena & Earnest, we really missed a treat. Your wedding is extremely high up on my list of one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever seen. The Photographer Abbey did a fantastic job of bringing to life the entire wedding in a beautiful summary of pictures. I feel like Abbey took us to your wedding even though we were not physically there with you all. We love you both and wish you so much love and joy. I hate we were unable to attend, your cousin and I. We appreciate this opportunity to see your wedding come alive in these photo…….Magnificent, Bravo, hats off to the bride, groom and the photographer!
