Candlelight Farms Inn: Airplane Hanger – New Milford Connecticut
This was a wedding where friends became clients! I met Joelle at one of my first weddings, she was second shooting and we really hit it off. When we had a moment to chat she mentioned that her Fiancé was a videographer and all I could think was what a perfect match. Fast forward to the next summer, when I had the opportunity to work with Josh and quickly became what we call in the wedding industry frendors. It was such a full circle moment when they then asked me to be apart of their fall wedding.
“WE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN HAPPIER WITH BRINGING CHARISSA ON BOARD AS THE DAY-OF COORDINATOR FOR OUR FALL WEDDING. MY HUSBAND AND I GOT MARRIED AT A VENUE WHERE WE HAD TO DO A LOT OF THE HEAVY LIFTING OURSELVES (CHAIR RENTALS, BATHROOM TRAILER RENTALS, CATERING, DECOR ASSEMBLY, ETC), SO NATURALLY, WE WERE OVERWHELMED AND NERVOUS THAT SOMETHING WAS GOING TO SLIP THROUGH THE CRACKS. BUT, NOT ONE THING WENT WRONG ON OUR WEDDING DAY. EVERYTHING FLOWED, THE RECEPTION WAS DECORATED EXACTLY HOW WE ENVISIONED, AND MY HUSBAND AND I WERE ABLE TO BOTH ENJOY EVERY MINUTE OF OUR DAY, FROM BEGINNING TO END, WITHOUT AN OUNCE OF WORRY. CHARISSA REALLY WAS THE GLUE THAT HELD EVERYTHING TOGETHER… AND SHE OVERSAW THAT ALL OF OUR VENDORS WERE WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE OUR DAY SO SPECIAL. EVEN IN A COUPLE OF MONTHS LEADING UP TO OUR DAY SHE SPENT TIME TALKING WITH US AND ASKING QUESTIONS TO REALLY GET TO KNOW US AND OUR WEDDING DAY VISION. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR A DAY-OF COORDINATOR OR EVEN A FULL-ON PLANNER. SHE CAN DO IT ALL!! HIRING HER WAS ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS WE MADE FOR OUR WEDDING.”

Settled in North West Connecticut Candlelight Farms Inn was the perfect venue for an autumn/fall wedding. The hanger allowed for an outdoor ceremony during peak fall foliage, making the perfect backdrop for photos. From the ceremony guests were able to move comfortably into the old airplane hanger turned reception space. It give the best of both worlds.
The hanger sits next to an active runway used for small private planes. When on our first site visit Joelle joked about the possibility of a plane taking off during the ceremony. Long behold just before “I Do” we heard an engine rawr and a small white plane make its decent.
