From Carla Ten Eyck Photography… Megan and Ante’s elegant wedding at The New Haven Lawn Club this spring was such a joy to photograph! From the moment that I met them both, I knew we were going to have a great time together! They were so easy with the laughs and so kind to each other during our meeting and then our engagement session, I knew their wedding was going to be even better! I was not disappointed! Megan was the calmest bride. She took in every moment, was present, glowing and ready with her trademark laugh at every turn! her family was doting and loving and amid the hustle and bustle of the wedding day stopped every so often to tell Megan how beautiful she looked… This is one of my favorite things to see, that despite this being such a big day full of many moving parts there is still time to take it all in and savor each moment as much as possible. I often put myself in the parents’ shoes and wonder how I will feel when it is my son or daughter getting married, and it never fails to make me pause and see my brides’ weddings in a new, even more emotional way!

When Megan saw Ante for the first time walking down the aisle, I could feel his smile and his cute little wave to her as she walked down the aisle made me laugh, he was even cute and funny at that moment! We had so much fun doing portraits and the whole wedding party was easy going and wiling to do whatever we needed to get the pictures Megan and Ante wanted! My favorite part was walking around Yale’s campus with them, everyone was so helpful and amazing! They let us in by one of the coolest gates on the campus so we could get some fun shots of Megan and Ante there… I love those images so much, for that very reason! People being so nice and loving and supportive to total strangers because they know it’s a big day! We ended the night in total ballroom elegance at The New Haven Lawn Club where the night ran so smooth, surrounded by the stunning floral designs of Fleur de Lys, and the perfectly lit room… what a wonderful night!

From the beautiful Bride… After meeting at a local restaurant in Greenwich, CT, Ante and I were inseparable. Within the first month of dating he told one of his friends that he was certain he was going to marry me. After years of adventure, fun and life, he proposed to me on December of 2012 in beautiful Stowe, Vermont on a horse and sleigh ride. The rest is planning history….

When we began to start planning the wedding both Ante and I wanted a classy, elegant, vintage but fun wedding. Sometimes themes can takeover your personality and stifle the atmosphere, so we decided to ensure pure elegance with loud touches of us. I have never been one to envision what our wedding day would look like but we did know that we wanted it to be timeless. Through these wants and needs, we decided on a color palate that was softer. We utilized blush pinks, ivory, gold, pink and peach. Once I started on the color gold needing to be elevated the rest fell right into place.

Our invitations were gold booklets tied together with lace and pearls. The bouquet for me was made of pure soft colors with gold and pink ribbon wrapping the stems and a sentimental pin from my grandmother. The bouquets for the bridesmaids were slightly louder in color with the incorporation of bright peaches and pinks while their dresses were lighter gunmetal. The guys had pink orchids, with Ante wearing an ivory/white orchid. My dress was a flared Ivory lace with tulle liancarlo, that had a romantic lace back yet elegant V neck line. Ante was dressed in a two piece fitted Hugo Boss navy blue suit with the classy touch of suspenders (my favorite partJ ).

Our venue could not have been more perfect at the New Haven lawn club. The classic chandeliers and functioning fire places really set the romantic mood! Cocktail hour had an amazing raw bar and the best part is, Ante and I got to enjoy the hour with our guests! The decoration style of the ballroom was based on our color scheme and involved white/ivory glittery table cloths. The table were covered with endless candles, cork bottom favor cards and family appreciation cards. The center pieces continued the feel of romance by having floating candles and hydrangeas dispersed throughout strategically placed branches. Because we really still wanted to essentially have a great party the band had to be amazing and it sure was! We were able to achieve such a romantic dinner with true elegance and class but still managed to have a great great party! Oh did I mention the late night snack with cheeseburger sliders and parmesean French fries? AMAZING…

We wouldn’t change a thing and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day…. And an even more amazing honeymoon in Australia and New Zealand!

Thank you Carla ten eyck for capturing the best day of our lives!

I love FUN weddings.  Those ones that are a happy-go-lucky party from start to finish and you are soooo bummed when the night comes to an end.  This, loves, is one of those weddings. A laid-back meets totally beautiful affair with two of the biggest smiles you will ever see (courtesy of the bride and groom, of course).  See soooo much more captured by Julie Morawski For Carla Ten Eyck in the full gallery.

From Julie Morawski For Carla Ten Eyck… Liz and Andrew are the kind of people that I’d like to be real-life friends with. They laugh a whole bunch, are sweet to each other and are perfectly laid-back. Oh, and Andrew is a pro instagrammer. Add in a whole pile of awesome friends and family, and their wedding was just perfect. The dance moves, the laughter, the love, the light. Yes.

Liz and Andrew, thank you for having Jazzy and I there for your big day, it was beautiful. Also, thanks for not minding when we were hootin’ and hollering photographing you. You guys are just too cute.

New Haven Lawn Club Wedding

Confession time: purple never lived towards the top of my wedding palette love list. In fact, I was sort of indifferent to the whole berry family of hues…that was until this Michelle Lange beauty came across my screen. Splashed against one wildly elegant ballroom with gold accents and cozy candles everywhere you look, this my dears, is the purple “I do” done oh-so-right. Have a look right here!

From the Bride… Matt and I crossed paths at a work holiday party about 3 years ago. We had known each other for quite some time but it wasn’t until that evening that Matt asked me on our first date. After almost 2 years of dating, Matt surprised me in my apartment with a birthday cake that read, “Will You Marry Me”.

When we decided not to get married in a church, Matt and I wanted to find a venue where we could have a traditional religious ceremony. We knew that New Haven Lawn Club was the one the second we stepped into their ballroom. Not only are the fireplaces and chandeliers breathtaking, the room offers the gorgeous, romantic setting we were looking for.

Thanks to our family, friends and vendors, our wedding day was more beautiful and memorable than we ever could have imagined.
