“Beaming”, is how I would describe not just the bride but also the groom for this gorgeous Inn at Mystic wedding. Monique + Andrew were both equally so excited for their big day.  Actually not just the day, but the months, the year leading up to September 29, 2017. 

Monique and Andy met thanks to friends that set them up on a blind date.  They hit it off pretty easily, which is understandable considering how easy it is to be around the two of them.  They laugh and laugh and aren’t afraid to show a little emotion.  When we met, Andy teared up a little telling me about the proposal and chatting about their wedding!  They have built a beautiful home with Monique’s daughter Sophia, their pets, and love of traveling and cooking.  Oh and their love of Disney!  I can’t forget that because I’m right there with them!  They actually went to Disney to do their engagement photos which is really pretty rad, and I love how Monique but “Andy” on the bottom of her wedding shoe like Woody had in Toy Story!  These two really had it all figured out! 

The wedding day could not have been more perfect weather wise.  It was truly the kind of summer day you dream of, and wish could last all year. They had their ceremony in a church in Westerly and had moments that showed who they were throughout.  Sophia walking her mom down the aisle, and Andy spoke vows to her as well as Monique, and they also had a tree planting unity ceremony.  Outside was the antique truck that had been passed down for generations in Andy’s family, and restored to pristine condition.  

The wedding continued at the stunning Haley Mansion at the Inn at Mystic, where guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the porch overlooking the water, while we took some photos in the gorgeous late afternoon light.  The personal touches continued at the reception.  Andy + Monique’s creative hashtag for their wedding was #Andique, a celebrity style mashup of their names and a nod to their love of antique things, which showed up everywhere from their center pieces to other decor which the couple themselves had found at antique shops and markets.  Their tables were named after places they have visited, or were going to be visiting. They even had the cake toppers designed to be wearing identical outfits to their own tux and gown, doing a little crossfitting!

Monique + Andrew truly planned their dream day, complete with amazing friends and loved ones, and choosing the perfect place to celebrate their new family.  You guys are so awesome, I’m sure you are loving the newly wed life and I’m so happy I was there to see it from the beginning!!
