Portland Home | The Gomolas

January 18, 2017

Some couples find love at work and some through friends, but in the new millennium connecting online is becoming more typical & this was the case for Michael & Yayee. They opted for a small intimate Sunday wedding with close friends and family. The day before snow fell finally making it feel like a true Connecticut winter.

The guest list of 20 allowed me to capture all the sweetness and love between them. Michael's dad performed the ceremony beaming with pride & emotion. The property's yard opens up to the boarder of the Portland Golf Club (which with the snow made it so pretty.)

One of my favorite moments was a song that Michael had chosen to play for his new bride that of course made everyone get emotional. Afterward we shuttled off to a lovely dinner reception with amazing food, drinks, and cake!

I appreciate your invitation to witness this special day. All the best Michael & Yayee!
