Rick & Darren’s wedding took place October 9, 2011, and their wedding was an adventure from the very first day we started working together. Rick took me on a journey through Litchfield County as we looked at the most unique and un-thought of bed and breakfasts, mansion rentals, and private homes as possible venues for their reception. We so saw many beautiful places, but we knew right away that Ragamont House Bed & Breakfast was the perfect venue for Rick & Darren’s wedding, and their gorgeous ceremony spot soon became Lion Rock Farm, just a few minutes down the road. It matched their style and their vision perfectly! We had about three and a half months to plan Rick & Darren’s beautiful fall wedding including venue searching, vendor selection, tent and rental selection, and complete design of this oh-so-elaborate and unique African Vintage inspired soiree. Their style evolved from a travel inspired wedding to a very personal take on what they loved most about travel and music. Enjoy Rick & Darren’s incredible photos by Binaryflips, it was truly a stunning wedding!
