Ashley & Korey | Anthony's Ocean View

September 23, 2020

Another Covid couple couldn't keep them from getting married and starting their forever together. There were many changes prior to this day from venues to amount of coverage but the day turned out just as they hoped. My regular second shooter and friend, Courtney did a great job capturing these for me on my behalf.

The venue Anthony's Ocean View is such a dream to work at with its tropical beach vibes right here in Connecticut. As I was picking photos for this blog I couldn't help feeling so much happiness for this new couple. Courtney did send me back of camera sneaks throughout the day and I remember thinking how pretty Ashley was in her lace detailed dress with flowy bottom. I think it was perfect for the beach!

I know I would've been a mess watching the bride's father walk her down the aisle and blubbering during the daddy/daughter dance. The dances are one of my favorite wedding traditions and it always reminds me how special this job is! The joining of family and celebration even among the Covid crisis!

I also remember their engagement session last fall at Wadsworth Falls and how cozy and cute Ashley and Korey are. I hope I didn't scare them with my big energy and their quiet demeanor. We chased the light and there was a purple sky as a cap to our time together.

I have to thank Courtney for being my hero and swooping in photographing this day last minute when I could not! I don't ever like letting my couples down but somehow Ashley and Korey really understood and rolled with the punches My #MOPcouples are some of the best let me tell you! Enjoy reliving your day Mr. & Mrs. Karoll!

Smiles, Mariel
