Connecticut Coastal Wedding


December 7, 2018

We knew we were going to adore Kristen + Alex after knowing them for a total of 10 seconds. They love The Office, check. They love Disney, check. They love to laugh, check. And let’s be real – they are just the sweetest and kindest people you’ll probably ever meet.

Fast forward a year after we drank a bottle of Cayuga White together, comes their wedding day at The Owenego Inn in Branford, CT. Basically, if you want quintessential Coastal New England  vibes- the Owenego is your wedding venue.

From their light and airy Bridal Suite with ocean breeze sweeping through to their amazing views from dinner under twinkly lights and the JETTY! We can’t forget the jetty (*swoon*) Kristen + Alex had a picture perfect day for October in Connecticut.

Alex’s family came up from the Carolina’s to share in the sweet sentiment including his very, very special Gee (who invited us to live with her and is the sweetest southern belle) and gifted Kristen a ring that has been in the Commander family for over 200 years that she sewed into her dress the morning of the wedding. How incredible. Not only did they keep up with Commander traditions, at each Korolyshun family wedding they serve Hummel Hot Dogs during cocktail hour. This tradition has been happening for years! (We even got to get in on the fun! haha)

Each part of their wedding day from the favors to the flowers was so intricately planned and executed so beautifully. We Love You Kristen + Alex- it was our honor to share in and be a part of so many beautiful family traditions that will be passed down for generations to come. Here’s to the Commanders!
