Amy and Joe: The Pavilion at Rocky Neck State Park, Niantic, CT

View More: http://tonyspinelliphotography.pass.us/gambardellaWhen Amy + Joe contacted me for day of coordination for their wedding at Rocky Neck State Park, I was super excited. I had seen some of the creative ideas the couple had for the venue and was happy to help them bring those ideas to light. Also, I would be able to work with some of the vendors at Rocky Neck State Park again that I worked with for Kelly + Ben’s wedding.  All pictures provided by Tony Spinelli of Tony Spinelli Photography.

It was a beautiful day with Long Island Sound as the perfect view from the ceremony.

There were passed S’mores as a dessert option. A hit having to be restocked regularly.

The whole party.

Some details. The Pavilion provides such a nice template for a reception.  Wooden beams, glass lantern lights, stone walls, large fireplaces at each end of the hall. Amy and Joe wanted to add a little personal touch with some string lights and a paper lantern chandelier over the dance floor area. Friends and family worked hard helping to assemble items before the ceremony.
