Connectictut Wedding with Grace and Elegance, II

Lyndsey Hamilton is the ridiculously talented planner behind today’s first real wedding. She collaborated with some of my all time favorite vendors, including florist and event designer Matthew Robbins of Artfool, caterer Marcey Brownstein of Marcey Brownstein Catering & Events, and photographer Jake McBride for Christian Oth, to pull together a wedding that is as timeless as it is chic, as elegant as it is personal.

The wedding was held at the bride’s father’s Flower Farm (wow) and set the backdrop for Matthew Robbins to work his magic. It seems that every detail just flowed so effortlessly into the next, with a casual elegance and a formal flair that is completely and totally beautiful.

And as usual, the photos that Jake McBride for Christian Oth Studio shot, have left my heart a flutter. They are simply stunning. We have so much more to come from this beautiful affair including an incredible pop of color in the reception decor. Big time gorgeous.

We are back from a whirlwind weekend in Aspen, where we attended one of my dear friend’s RIDICULOUSLY gorgeous wedding. Seriously one of the prettiest weddings I’ve ever seen (we’ll have more details on Backstage when it launches this week). It was a much needed vaca and has left me totally invigorated and excited to get back to SMP.

And the wedding that we are featuring today is the perfect way to kick off the week…filled to the brim with elegance and style. Plus, the affair was a orchestrated by a bevy of SMP’s Little Black Book Vendors which always makes me really happy. The AMAZING Lyndsey Hamilton planned the entire wedding, while Matthew Robbins of Artfool did the florals and event design, Marcey Brownstein of Marcey Brownstein Catering & Events catered the event, and Jake McBride for Christian Oth photographed the story. It’s a lesson in perfection…despite nature’s imperfections!

From the lovely, lovely Lyndsey Hamilton…

White Flower Farm is owned by the bride’s father, Eliot Wadsworth.  WFF is a world-famous flower farm that grows and exports rare and exotic flowers.  The farm also raises livestock.  The caterer, Marcey Brownstein, actually used the farm raised beef for the reception meal!

We worked with Eve from the beginning of the planning: hiring all the vendors, orchestrating the details and coordination, and executing the production of the wedding day.  The ceremony took place at Litchfield Congregation Church, then guests returned to the farm for the tented reception.  The bride wore Vera Wang and then changed into a party dress.  The bridesmaids also wore Vera Wang and their dresses were altered to a short version of the original design.

We have so much more to come and if you haven’t already designed your inspiration board for our Weekend Challenge, you have until 5PM today! We will announce the winner tomorrow!
