This was my first time shooting a Stony Creek Brewery wedding -such a great new venue for hosting a top deck event with amazing views! The ceremony began around the corner at the Frist Congregational perfectly located next to the shoreline. We walked to some favorite spots of the bride and groom along the way for some portraits including the beautiful/rustic Branford trolly trail bridge. The bride and groom arrived in style by boat to the brewery docks and were greeted by bagpipes and hundreds of cheers from their guests on the top deck and patrons at the bar levels below!
