Despite knowing each other since high school and becoming roommates during college, it wasn’t until Sarah and Eric graduated and moved back home with their parents (just blocks away from each other) that they started dating.

The Bride Sarah Jankowitz, 28, elementary school teacher
The Groom Eric Strong, 29, professional gambler
The Date July 18

Eric proposed to an unsuspecting Sarah on Valentine’s Day with balloons, roses, earrings, a necklace, and finally, an engagement ring. After Sarah decided she wanted to throw a barn wedding, the two started scouring sites. After finding the perfect venue in Middletown, Connecticut, the two started planning their modern barn wedding for the following summer.

It's here! (well, almost)

We have been waiting for the release of David Tutera's "Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings" and are super excited that it will hit the shelves on January 12, 2010! The Barns at Wesleyan Hills is the featured "Dream Country Wedding"!
Can't wait? Preorder your copy here! (I did!)


Thanks to the eagle eyed MB for spotting this!
What a treat to open my email this afternoon and find a note from Kathleen and Robert Trenske. They photographed Valerie and Chris's Wedding at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills on October 24, 2009 and emailed me to let me know about the terrific images from this event they have on their blog.
Here is a little bit from Kathleen's post ... but I encourage you to click here to read the entire post.


"Since Valerie & Chris love the feel of a New England fall (they had originally thought about getting married in Vermont), The Barns at Wesleyan Hills was the perfect fit for the kind of rustic, romantic wedding they wanted. When we arrived at The Barns, the rain had finally decided to take a break just in time for some photos of Valerie & Chris and their bridal party. During the shots of just the two of them we incorporated a lot of the property, including some unexpected places (like a storm drain) and the more traditional spots ideal for showing off the foliage you can only get in this part of the country. When the rain really started to come down, Valerie & Chris stayed out in the rain for a bit with us (staying dry underneath one of the oversized golf umbrellas we always carry with us) to get a few rain shots. The reception kicked off shorty after that, with A Starry Night DJs playing plenty of Latin music to get this crowd moving. It seemed like almost every guest was jumping at the chance to dance with the bride and groom, wishes which they happily obliged. But they were never away from each other for very long, coming together at every chance to hold each other close and take in just how perfect their day turned out to be."
