Latitude 41 is located in well renowned Mystic CT, right on the coast. Thus, Ceremonies for Latitude 41 Weddings are held right on the water!
This made for fantastic views during Golden Hour. Golden hour for those that do not know, is the hour leading up to sunset where the sky is lit up in gold. When the clouds cooperate, photographers eat this up!
Waterside ceremonies can make for a challenge in regards to guests hearing your vows. We provide microphones so everyone can hear – yes even grandma! Too much wind can make this a challenge, however. An easy approach is using wind covers on your traditional handheld mic as opposed to the tiny lapel microphones that clip-on. The reason for this is that those tiny mics need to amplify the sound, as they are physically farther from your voice. This amplification also picks up wind! So instead, we use handheld mics with wind covers. No amplified wind and grandma can hear you cry while you say your vows just fine 🙂
A little ways up the lawn from the water is where cocktail hour was held. A shaded patio hugging the reception hall made for a cozy space to kick off the festivities following the ceremony. We’d provide background music to complement the vibe, of course. A grand introduction kicked off first dances and dinner, followed by toasts. Then we’d have free reign to run the dance floor to close out the night.
With such a diverse crowd, we ran the gamut as far as much genres go. Classic Rock, Hip hop, Reggaeton, EDM, Pop, Disco, 80s, 90s. Throw a photo booth in the corner and we were rocking all night!
