Wedding Pictures at The Barn at Wesleyan HillsThe reception at this wedding was excellent! The Barn at Wesleyan Hills in Middletown, Connecticut, is a truly charming space with a lot of ambience. It is a fantastically unique venue to host a wedding ceremony and reception. I shoot many weddings where the ceremony takes place in one location and the reception takes place in another but this Barn gives you wonderful choices to have both in one venue. The bride and groom were both warm and inviting people, so it was no surprise that their family and friends were the same way. I love watching a groom who isn’t afraid to get out on the dance floor with his friends! I generally choose to shoot the dancing portion of a wedding reception with a wider lens than I would normally work with for the rest of the day. Dance floors can be crowded, the action is always wild, and there simply isn’t a way to shoot with a long lens in the center of a packed dance floor. Nikon crafts extremely precise pieces of glass, so I always know that the images that I take during the dancing portion of the reception will be crisp and tack sharp.
