Shoreline Charm: Felicia and Gerard

This September 2016 shoreline wedding for Felicia and Gerard at one of our favorite New England locations; The Owenego Inn beach and tennis club in Branford, Connecticut. When looking for a location that is 100% family owned showcasing nothing but shoreline charm, this is the place to be. Felicia and Gerard are a couple that gives back; Felicia being a nurse and Gerard being a member of our Armed Forces, this couple spend their days giving back to community. And at the wedding it was obvious that their friends and family love and support them for all that they do

Marnie and Steve came to me to be their Justice of the Peace, and in minutes we were laughing and planning the big day.
