From Caroline Frost PhotographyThis detail-filled wedding was almost entirely DIYed by the bride- I love what this couple did for their charming little waterside CT wedding and I know you will too!

From the beautiful Bride…We wanted our wedding day to be simple but fun. With only 50 guests, we really felt like we got to share the day with everyone. It was the second week of April and it ended up being 70 and sunny, (even though it snowed the next week). We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day for our waterfront wedding.

We both love preppy, nautical style, and our venue was right on Greenwich Harbor with fun nautical flags and yachts. We wanted everything to feel natural and timeless, so we decided on blush, gray, white, and earthy greens. I love DIY and crafts, and since it was such a small wedding I really wanted everything our guests interacted with to have a personal touch. We designed, printed, and cut our save the dates, invites, menus, and welcome tags. We also made chalkboards and hand-painted signs, and made rosemary olive oil for our favors. We also worked with our venue to create signature cocktails that fit each of our personalities.

We met with a lot of vendors and ended up going with the people that we knew understood our vision, and who we’d want to spend this very important day with. Everyone went above and beyond and made the day so easy for us, I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

My favorite moment of the day was actually before the wedding even happened. Scott and I woke up as the sun rise to sneak off and have breakfast together before the chaos hit. It was so nice to have that time together and remember that this day was about us.

Our wedding was so special to us not only because we got married, but because we packed up our life and moved to the south right when we got back from our honeymoon. It felt like we got this amazing goodbye party to see everyone we love together in one place before we left.

From Karen Hill PhotographyGretchen and Will were introduced by mutual friends while they were living in Boston. They were invited over for pizza and wine, and the rest, Gretchen says, is history!

Their wedding was celebrated in the brides hometown of Greenwich, CT with friends and family in attendance. Gretchen’s heart was set on getting married in a place that was very near and dear to her family. Having moved many times with her family, around the world for her father’s work, Greenwich has always felt most like home. The bride and bridal party dressed at Gretchen’s family home and the couple was married in the Bride’s church, First Presbyterian Church in Greenwich, CT. The reception was held at the beautiful Blind Brook Club. Established in 1915, this is the first wedding that the prestigious club has hosted and it was perfect. The tent and the decor were lovely.

It was a joyous day, filled with beauty and smiles. Though their wedding in April was unseasonably cold, we managed a few outdoor photos but the gorgeous tent with it’s floral draped chandeliers made it feel more like a warm spring day.

Gretchen says, “Our wedding day was filled with so much love and joy from start to finish. To look around and see all our loved ones in one place, dancing up a storm–it was nothing short of magical!”

From Melani Lust Photography… They met on the beach in the Hamptons where they were spending a weekend with mutual friends. Their meeting didn’t get off to a promising start. Jennifer was engrossed in one of the Hunger Games books, and conversation was cut short as a result. Young adult fiction had never been the key to Carter’s heart, but he was making an equally immature impression through various sophomoric drinking games.

Fortunately, things went up from there. Little did Carter know that Jennifer had met her Prince Charming! The next seven months were spent improving Jennifer’s military knowledge and vocabulary: “trinkets” became “medals,” “soldiers” became “Marines,” and “outfits” were properly identified as “uniforms.” Upon return from his deployment to Afghanistan, Carter proposed on New Year’s Eve.

The day began with a soft, delicate rain, and sunny skies came out just in time for their first look. It was a fairytale ceremony in an historical church followed by the American Military custom of the arch of swords, giving a symbolic pledge of loyalty to them from their Marine family. It is also a tradition for the sword bearer on the right to give the bride a “swat” on her rump and utter “Welcome to the Marines!” Off they went to the Belle Haven Club where Katherine of KD & J Botanica created a fun and elegant reception design in pink and navy. The families celebrated with dancing, games and fresh cigars; laughing into the evening when a dramatic storm swirled through the club, a passionate ending to a perfect day.
