Here it is – our first “fall” wedding of this year. Melissa + Chris couldn’t ask for a better weather for their wedding at The Riverview in Simsbury. 70 degrees, no humidity, you could almost smell the fall in the air 😉 Their day started with the preparations at the Avon Old Farms Hotel. Once they were ready to go, we photographed their first look, and then we drove to Simsbury for portraits. We quickly stopped at the Drake Flower Bridge and took super fun bridal party photos. From there we headed to The Riverview so they can finally get married! 😉 Scroll down to see Melissa and Chris’ wedding story.

You can already see some leaves on the ground, and trees changing colors in the background. Sunflowers were a great choice for this early fall wedding at the Riverview in Simsbury.
