A Union League Cafe Wedding is a delightful occasion set in the heart of New Haven, Connecticut. The Union League Cafe Wedding day of Miroslav Volf and Jessica Dwelle began with a beautiful marriage ceremony at Christ Church in New Haven, followed by a reception at Union League Cafe. This photo of the bride and some of her family members was taken at the church just before the wedding ceremony. The bride, Jessica, is at the center of the image, looking serene in this moment of prayer. Jessica’s short, dark hair is done simply, curling just below her chin. She wears a chic ivory wedding gown, with a scoop neck sleeveless top. The top of the dress cinches at the highest point of her waist and then flows down to the floor in a cascade of silky fabric. The bride and her family stand in a circle in a meeting hall at the church. They hold hands and smile as they say a final prayer together before Jessica begins her walk down the aisle. Each person in the prayer circle grins with his or her eyes closed, so that each second of this precious moment will be wholly felt. Jessica’s father, the man to her left, speaks from the heart and leads his family in a prayer that is full of love, faith, and support for his daughter on her special day. This picture is one that captures a time on Miroslav and Jessica’s wedding that they will cherish, and with this photograph they will be able to hold this moment in both their hearts and hands for years to come.
