Molly & Dylan | Two Roads Brewery

September 14, 2021

My couples choose the best places to get married! Two Roads Brewing in Stratford was intimate and the weather couldn't have been better. All the girls and bride's man were getting ready at the Milford Hilton and I got to say it's a great place! Instead of being cramped in a tiny bridal suite they have a conference room where there is room for the hair and makeup team plus me! They do a great job!

Molly is so hard working because she is a nurse! She has been on the frontlines of Covid this whole year while planning this day and I give her so much credit. It is easy meeting her how much she loves her patients, family/friends and for Dylan, her groom (even though she almost cancelled their first date). The morning of meeting Dylan her Great Aunt ended up having a medical issue and she warned him she may have to postpone - luckily she didn't and it was fun to meet that aunt later on in the day who is 93 years young!

We stopped for some portraits on the green in Milford before heading to Two Roads. The sun was shining through to the ceremony space and the vows have to be my favorite part of the day. Portrait time was fast paced but glowy and I just love that Dylan mentioned that row of hops drying it made the perfect backdrop! We didn't get into the brewery itself since it was open to the public but it didn't matter. These two just mingled the night away with their guests and felt the love surrounding them.

Enjoy this season of newlywed bliss, Leonards!

All smiles,


There was no first look so I loved seeing Dylan's reaction
