Gorgeous Wedding at Tower Ridge with Carla Ten Eyck & Erik Maziarz

Sheer joy. Pure happiness. Super funocity (that's not a word , is it?). These are the first words that come to mind when I think of describing my experience at Kevin & Kerri's wedding on Saturday at Tower Ridge Country Club in Simsbury. My extreme good luck ended in spending an awesome Saturday with some of the most fun, fabulous, and sincere people. But I would be remiss if I did not tell you how my luck began. I only served as an assistant on this wedding, the first wedding where I assisted the uber-fabulous, super talented, and amazingly artistic Carla Ten Eyck. Have you checked out her website yet? Click on her name if you haven't. I also have to give Mr. Maziarz a shout out - he was shooting with Carla that day and oh my Lord, is he awesome too! Woo!

I recently started working with Carla and her studio team. I do office "stuff" and a little shooting here and there. And boy does that make me count my lucky stars. I am so humbled to be working amongst such amazing talent. I couldn't be happier if I tried.

While being an assistant I do get to shoot a little too. (Dang, I am so thankful for that!!!!) And while I know that I don't have near the awesomeness ("there is no charge for the awesomeness" - what movie??) that Carla and her team have, I am going to share a couple of my favorite images that came from my camera that day. Enjoy! :)

Kerri's dress was so pretty

Kevin's mom brought a special little piece of lace

Loved the muted colors of Kerri's bouquet, they looked gorgeous against her dress


Love the light here and overexposure here. It was so ethereal to me and complemented Kerri's happiness so well.

SUCH a happy (and beautiful!!!) bride!

Holy SMOKES!!!

Here's a quiet moment just before Kerri and Kevin's first look.

Right after their first look Kerri and Kevin sat down and she read a heartfelt letter to him. It was such a sweet moment.

The sacred moment!!!

So glad I was a part of your super fun and beautiful celebration guys! Thank you!

Holy Crap, Katie Slater! You just blew my socks off! Seriously. I kept being like, "Wow! Wow!" Just incredible. Love the shot of the bride alone--far left--just before the first look. The ceremony shot with lots of ceiling--very cool. You are insane!
