Nautical

From Lauren Fair Photography… Kate and Charlie’s stunning, softly romantic nautical wedding was set at the lovely Mystic Seaport in Connecticut. The old ships and weathered wood buildings gave a perfect backdrop for photos, and in true New England fashion, it was an overcast and misty day until a beautiful sunset peeked out after the ceremony.

From the Bride… Knowing we would have many of our guests traveling from out of town, we decided to choose a destination close to where I grew up and where we knew friends and family would enjoy visiting during the summer. After touring several other venues in the area we fell in love with the idea of getting married on the water at the beautiful and charming Mystic Seaport. During the planning process we had so much fun exploring Mystic and discovering new restaurants and activities to share with our guests. Mystic has such an amazing nautical and rustic feel, so we wanted to add a romantic and vintage touch. Inspired by a bouquet from a real wedding I had found online, we stuck with a muted neutral color palette including blush pinks, ivory and a cool sea foam green, and used gold as an accent color. We carried this color scheme throughout our wedding day collateral, from our stationery and succulent escort card favors to our table linens and candy bar. The ceremony took place on the North Lawn at Mystic Seaport, overlooking the Mystic River at 5:30 pm.

Although the day had been overcast prior to the ceremony, as guests began to arrive the sun came out and made for beautiful sunset. Guests were seated in white wooden chairs, decorated with vintage pails filled with gray succulents, pale pink roses, peach spray roses, nude berries and various accent greens and herbs, hanging from mauve raw silk Midori ribbon. Two tall cylinder vases filled with garden and spray roses, peonies, hydrangeas, peach stock and berries, lisianthus along with various accent greens (dusty miller, acacia foliage, feather eucalyptus), accented the end of the aisle. All of our vendors played such important parts in making our day so special and unforgettable. Our incredibly talented photographers (Lauren Fair Photography) were a must have, once I had seen their work on Style Me Pretty we couldn’t hire anyone else. They did an amazing job capturing all of the magic of our engagement and wedding. We couldn’t have pulled everything off without Jenna Landon, our event coordinator with Coastal Catering.

Whimsical

From Love & Light PhotographsOn the prettiest summer day, Joe fought back tears as Lynn walked down the aisle towards him. In fact, this was the very same place they fell in love as teenagers. Working at the same country club down the road, their love grew and eventually led them to this incredibly special day. For this reason, every single moment was so poignant for these two and their families.

They wed under a gorgeous tree with a single chandelier hanging above their heads. Lynn walked through faux white wooden church doors adorned with chic green wreaths and everyone was in tears. I mean everyone! Lynn chose for her bridesmaids to wear gray and they created their own bouquets during a garden party two nights before the wedding. Invitations by Stephanie created the whimsical yet chic invitations that set the tone for the whole day, and we had so much fun including giant balloons into the wedding party photos and bride and groom portraits. The wreaths were incorporated further as “Mr. and Mrs.” signs on the back of their sweetheart chairs, and gave their guests sweet butter cookies shaped with their initials at the end of the evening. Lynn and Joe are amazing people and an even better couple. I am so thrilled that they chose me to capture their day.

Rustic

From Michelle LangeThis private residence wedding in Newtown Connecticut, the bride wore a beautiful lace BHLDN gown and was surrounded by her 14 bridesmaids in their choice of a lace ivory dress. The groom and groomsmen wore Ralph Lauren suits which perfectly complimented the ladies. Hydrangea bouquets were carried by the bride and bridesmaids. Arrangements of fresh cut flowers accented the tables.

From The Bride… We were very fortunate to have our wedding where my husband grew up. It was always a special place to him which in part, became special to me. Since it is an old turkey farm, we wanted to keep the theme of the wedding rustic but elegant.

I have always been inspired by a white bridal party and wanted to do something along those lines. Once I found my dress, I knew I wanted the bridesmaids to compliment the lace detail.

My favorite moment of our wedding was when the two of us where on the bridge by ourselves able to look into the tent and see everything come together and know that people were having fun! Details that made our wedding day special was the setting, people that where there, and all the hard work that our vendors put in to make it awesome!
