When it came to finding the perfect spot to hold their wedding Lindsey & Chris wanted to find a location where their guests could step away from their typically busy day to day lives and immerse themselves in another - slower - environment. Both being passionate about wine and everything that goes along with it, it was obvious that a vineyard was a must and being surrounded by nature would be a bonus. Gorgeous bride Lindsey tells us, "It was important for us to find not only a venue, but an area that we could visit for years to come. When we found out about SALTWATER FARM VINEYARD through research, we thought it was too good to be true. It is a vineyard and winery set on the Long Island Sound in Northern Connecticut. Once we stepped foot onto the property, the silence, chirps of birds and smell of the ocean calmed our nerves. We were inspired by the simplicity and history of Saltwater and Stonington, which helped draw all of our ideas into the reality of our day. Stonington was the perfect backdrop. Between our venue, the Lighthouse and a local farm that we discovered, we had endless adventure filled photo opportunities." And photographer VERONICA LOLA PHOTO took advantage of those opportunities to capture these gorgeous images.
