Nautical Coral + Mint Cape Cod Wedding

When these two special education teachers met six years ago, it didn’t take long before a friendship and eventual romance followed. And once the question was popped and the was date set, a wedding at the bride’s family vacation home made perfect sense. Ruth Eileen captured every momentDelicious Desserts designed the (amazing!) cake and Brighter Lights Media crafted the film you don’t want to miss.

From the Bride… Rob and I met six years ago in New York City as special education teachers in the South Bronx. He grew up in Suffern, NY and I had just moved to the city from Santa Cruz, California. We bonded quickly during our first year of teaching and graduate school, and have been best friends ever since.

From the moment Rob proposed, I knew we would get married in Cape Cod. My family has a cottage in Wareham, Massachusetts that has been a summer vacation destination for several generations and my favorite place in the entire world. Since the beginning of our relationship, Rob and I have spent countless hours at the beach cottage, surrounded by family or enjoying a romantic getaway from our busy life in Manhattan.

When we found the Popponesset Inn, there was no need to look further for the perfect wedding venue. We wanted a romantic, nautical beach wedding, and thanks to our parents and amazing vendors, Rob and I literally had the wedding of our dreams.

Our wedding was on the evening of May 25th under a tent on the beach. The ceremony was performed by a close friend of mine and included Jewish and Christian traditions, as well as our own vows and a Fisherman’s Knot. My favorite parts of the day were the personal touches, from the interfaith ceremony to the funfetti wedding cake to the chalkboard sinage to the gilded NYC taxicabs we used for escort cards to pay homage to city where met and fell in love.

The colors we chose were mint and coral, with touches of gold, with the anchor playing a central role in our decor. Our huppah was built by my father, who incorporated our color scheme and other gorgeous details like lace and nautical rope. The flowers by Sweet Annie Floral Designs consisted of large, colorful garden roses, ranunculus, and peonies with touches of dusty miller.

Rob and I could not have asked for a more beautiful day. We are filled with so much love and gratitude for our friends, family, and all the people we worked with who made our day unforgettable.

Preppy Chic Popponesset Inn Wedding

Nautical just so happens to be my jam. I’ve never met a monkey’s fist I didn’t like, and stripes? Forget it, love them. Needless to say, this wedding from Lauren Methia Photography has won my heart. From the beach to the flowers to that delish cake from Delicious Desserts, I’m smitten and I don’t care who knows it.

From the stunning bride… Even though my husband Mike and I met at college in Providence, Rhode Island, and now live in Connecticut, we always knew we wanted a Cape Cod wedding. My family has lived on the Cape since I was little, and Mike and I try to visit as often as we can!

For our wedding theme, we tried to mix casual and formal by choosing classic, clean designs mixed with nautical elements and bold blues and purples. The Popponesset Inn provided the perfect venue – it has a beach feel without the risks of an outdoor wedding (though we were lucky to have great weather), and everything from the views to the food was fantastic.

Lauren Methia’s photos captured our wedding in a gorgeous way, and I’m grateful to all of the other professionals who helped the day come together, like Lynn at Dear LC, who patiently created everything from our invitations to the escort cards; Lisa at Delicious Desserts, who made our cake and favors; Wilma at the Popponesset for her advice and coordination; and the many Etsy vendors who created small, beautiful elements of our wedding – to name just a few.

After months of planning and a few stressful moments on the big day, it was great to let go and have fun at our ceremony and reception. In the end, that’s what you remember. The night turned out to be exactly as we imagined thanks to our supportive family, friends, and wedding vendors!

Popponessett Inn Wedding

As much as I’m all for snowmen and snowflakes and snowy evenings spent by the fireplace this time of the year, there is just something so refreshing about a beach wedding right now, especially when it is as gorgeous as this one from Jenny Moloney Photography. The hint of fresh, warm, salty air in every romantic detail is just the perfect momentary escape, and then it’s back to the hot chocolate agenda.

Such a stunning film from Paperweight Films!

From the beautiful bride… Andrew and I met at South Station in Boston while we were waiting in line to board a seemingly inevitably delayed Mega Bus to New York City. I boarded the bus first and claimed a coveted window seat. When Andrew boarded the bus a few minutes later he asked if he could sit next to me, and luckily I said yes! We hit it off right away once we realized that we both went to the University of Colorado in Boulder. I have to admit at one point I was worried we would run out of things to say because that is a long bus ride on a Friday at rush hour, but we never did, we talked and laughed for the entire six hour bus ride. When we arrived in NYC he asked for my number.

A couple of months later we met up for drinks in Boston and shortly after that began spending all of our free time together. Andrew proposed two years later on the beach at my family’s house on Cape Cod, which meant the world to me because it has been a special place for my family for many generations and has witnessed many generations of love stories. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect place for the beginning of our lives together as a family to start.

We knew right away that we wanted to get married on the Cape, somewhere by the water. We both wanted to have a wedding that was really personal to us, elegant, yet relaxed and fun with our families and closest friends. June 29th was the best day of our lives! We had an amazing time celebrating our love with friends and family and were even able to sneak out onto the beach for a photo shoot with our feet in the sand, and the Cape wind blowing in off the water. We are forever grateful to all of the amazing vendors we worked with to create and capture our day, especially Jenny Moloney Photography and Paperweight Films!
