Gershon Fox Ballroom Wedding
Hartford Connecticut Wedding
I am so excited to share this wedding with everyone at The Gershon Fox Ballroom located in Hartford, Connecticut. The G. Fox & Co. Building is significant for its architecture and downtown Hartford history. This retail establishment, founded in 1847 by Gershon Fox, grew to become the city’s largest department store in the twentieth century. Gershon’s son, Moses, hired noted New York architect, Cass Gilbert (1858-1934), to rebuild the store on a grand scale after a devastating fire. The eleven story, steel frame and masonry structure on Main Street was completed in 1918. Ornate architectural features of this Neo-Classical Revival style building include monumental Corinthian order marble columns and pilasters. After their ceremony, we headed over to the Hartford City Hall to capture their formal photos. The building is amazing and I am always excited to get the chance to work in the beautiful space.
A special thanks to everyone at G. Fox Ballroom for being so accommodating during Kait and Vivaldi’s wedding day. And lastly, a big thank you to all of the wedding professionals that had a part of making this wedding day amazing for this great couple. I can’t wait to photograph another wedding at The Gershon Fox Ballroom. Here is a glimpse of their wedding day, thanks for taking a look.
