My Gardening Adventures
June 20, 2012 PERSONAL
This past spring I really tried to work on the yard and I'm really enjoying watching things grow. I am a beginner when it comes to yard work and gardening, however I do enjoy the time spent outside. Below are a few things that are in the yard and what would be a personal blog post without Roxy dog included?!
Above is petal of a lace cap hydrangea. I think this plant (and another) are turning blue on me--haven't made up my mind if changing colors is the way to go yet. I wanted pink to add warmth to a shaded garden. Below is a plant that was here when we bought the house, it's an astilbe and I do love it. I was thinking of adding more since it's a shade plant, colorful, and adds texture.
The flower below is a hydrangea from www.whiteflowerfarm.com that I bought and planted this year. The specific name is hydrangea macrophylla wedding gown (I like the sounds of that!).
Below left is more astilbe in bloom, just love it! On the right is a Boston Fern.
This little purple guy is lavender that I planted this year. I'm not sure it's going to last since no where in our yard is full sun (this spot maybe gets 6 hours). I wanted to see if it would grow there before I plant more.
After going to Hawaii (Big Island, Kauai, Maui ) for our honeymoon, I feel like this house needs a hibiscus plant and this year my favorite color is orange. I'm hoping this Price Chopper plant will stay with us for a while!
This is one of the bigger projects I tackled this spring. In our backyard we have a white fence along the border where I dug out four feet by forty feet of grass to add what I hope to be a wall of hydrangeas someday (inspiration from an engagement session in New Haven, click here). Once I paint the fence I'll share more landscape images, all of the images shared in this post were taken with my macro lens.
Roxy watched me take all these photos. Below is her I "wanna go" face, yes that is her excited.

Today, June 20, 2012, I just realized that my website, www.alissadinneen.com is down. The web designers servers are down, therefore my site and email are both not working. Their IT department is working on resolving this issue.

Erica & Jason's CT Wedding @ A Cardinal House : Glastonbury
June 18, 2012 WEDDINGS
Erica and Jason were married at A Cardinal House in Glastonbury, Connecticut on June 10, 2012. Jason has worked for Alissa Dinneen Photography starting in June 2008 (Amy and Ian was his first wedding). He's had his fair share of weddings; it was an absolute pleasure to see him so happy and in love with his gorgeous wife Erica.
Below are a few of my favorite images, enjoy!
The very handy and creative Jason made his wife this hanger!
Jason and Erica opted to do a "private moment" and see each other before the wedding--optimizing picture taking time!
The tag sewn into Erica's dress was her mothers.
