Classic meets nautical is one of our favorite ways to say “I do” – and this elegant estate affair is most definitely topping our list of all-time faves. From the carefully crafted stylings of Always Yours Events to the beautiful navy, coral and blush color palette to the breathtaking images captured by AE Stelzer Photography. Head to THE VAULT for even more, then press play on the film from Stop Go Love below.
From Always Yours Events… Caroline and Dave were married in the beautiful, quintessential seaside town of Falmouth on Cape Cod at Caroline’s grandparents’ private estate. This property was perfection and tucked away on a private lane, complete with a beautiful gray washed restored Cape barn and a view overlooking Siders Pond. It was sentimental to boot, as Caroline’s parents had been married at the same exact location forty years before.
When Caroline and Dave approached me to plan their wedding, they had one vision in mind: an ethereal, remarkable and truly merry celebration that guests would rave about long after the night was over. And they both desired a wedding that embodied the Cape Cod lifestyle. To do this, we selected an incredible wedding vendor team to create this gorgeous day, including Sperry Tents (Marion), Rentals Unlimited, Stop Go Love Videography and talented film photographer AE Stelzer to name a few. For entertainment Caroline and Dave selected the Sultans of Swing, who truly were the highlight of the evening! This seven piece band had everyone dancing from the moment they started playing — even the neighbors were hosting cocktail parties in their backyards to enjoy the entertainment!
The couple’s chosen color palette invoked a nautical feel, including shades of navy, coral, blush, white and gold. Navy and white striped linens, gold flatware and gold rimmed crystal, navy cocktail napkins with gold foil monograms, a floral arch draped with soft white chiffon tied back with coral and blush blooms, a rosé prosecco signature cocktail, wooden oars serving as a guest book, and customized wayfarers inscribed with Caroline and Dave’s motto “Better Together,” were just a few of the lovely curated details.
And of course the wedding would not have been complete without a few surprises such as a vintage Benz getaway car, a sparkler send off and parade that led to the after party, and surprise entrance from the Father of the Bride who rode his vintage motorcycle into the sailcloth tent and across the dance floor for his intro and toast to his daughter and new son-in-law. Caroline and Dave’s wedding was definitely one for the books, and it was an honor to be a part of it!
