Liz and Dan’s CT Backyard Tent Wedding

Liz and Dan were originally going to have their reception at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, but due to the pandemic, had to quickly switch plans to a backyard tented wedding at their New Haven CT home. We came in the day prior to setup the tent lighting in both their ceremony tent and their reception tent. Their friend put up a couple simple uplights on the trees in their backyard.

We provided microphones for Liz and Dan’s ceremony this was paired with musical selections by Ariana Strings who also played into cocktail hour. Dinner and dancing took place under the tent along with yard games played in the adjacent yard. Liz’s Matron of Honor rapped her toast to an instrumental version of Kanye West’s Gold-digger

Photographer: On Point Images
Catering: Cafe Aura

Introduction Song: Waka Waka – Shakira
First Dance: I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You – Kina Granis (Crazy Rich Asian’s Sountrack)
Last Song: Cascada – Every time We Touch

DJ Pat took control as their DJ that night, but it was their maid of honor who stole the show with her speech turned into rap. Check it out below.
