Rick & Lee Loo
I met Rick and Lee Loo while dating a mutual friend and was absolutely thrilled when they asked me to photographer their wedding at the Brandford House in Connecticut. Rick and Lee Loo have a love of travel – they have been all around the world together and apart. Before their summer wedding in Connecticut, they took a 3 month trip and traveled all across South America. After all this the time they spent apart, they realized all they wanted to make it official and truly commit themselves to each other.
As a Portsmouth NH Wedding Photographer, I always welcome travel – especially when it is for friends. The Brandford House is an amazing venue located right on UNCONN’s campus – a gorgeous mansion surrounded by views of the atlantic ocean and a few light houses! Rick is predominantly Jewish and actually recently just got back from a birthright trip to Isreal. It was right after a summer apart they got engaged on her birthday weekend in the mountains of New York. It was important to him to incorporate his heritage into his wedding day – his dad made the Huppah where they got married underneath. Lee Loo did her best to incorporate her friends as vendors in the wedding from the flowers to me to the DJ – she was thrilled to be able to give business to those friends closest to her.
Lee Loo had her bridesmaids wear bohemian blush pink dresses that perfectly matched the vintage theme of her wedding day. Lee Loo also was able to wear her grandmother’s watch as her “something old”. Rick and his groom’s men wore light grey suits accented by light purple orchid boutonnieres to match the bridesmaid’s dresses.
Rick & Lee Loo said their vows in front of their family and friends over looking the Atlantic Ocean – their pastor surprised them by using a harmonica to add some spice to their ceremony – Lee Loo was all about this since she is a local Boston vocal coach. After the ceremony, dinner was severed in a buffet fashion. After dinner, they danced the night away in one of the many rooms of the Brandford House.
