From Ramblefree Photo CoBrian and Christie’s sophisticated New England wedding took place on a balmy, stormy day in late August, but the couple and their guests didn’t let the rain spoil anything for them! Both the ceremony and reception took place at the beautiful Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA – a stately stone mansion tucked away in a forest. Christie looked stunning in bridal separates from Watters and WToo topped with a glamorous beaded capelet from BHLDN. The bridesmaids complemented the simple and chic color palette with mismatched but coordinating nude gowns. Brian and his groomsmen were handsome in classic Vera Wang tuxes.

Because of the impending rain, the couple was wed in a traditional ceremony under Willowdale’s gracious tent with a view of the stone courtyard. While guests enjoyed cocktail hour, Brian and Christie, undeterred by the approaching storms, braved the outdoors and wandered Willowdale’s grounds and forests to get some natural couples portraits. Luckily, the rain held off until almost the exact moment when they went back inside for the start of the reception!

The talented Les Fleurs created the lush bouquets and ceremony and reception decor. The floral design incorporated abundant soft pastels, corals, and textural greenery such as ivy. Christie and Les Fleurs decided to take advantage of the summer harvest and incorporate summer fruits like peaches and pears into the centerpieces. They were a wonderfully unexpected and beautiful touch. Each guest also received a peach at their place setting.

Guests dined on delicious food from Willowdale and danced into the night with the bride and groom while rain pounded on the tent roof above.

Rustic

From Annmarie Swift Photography… Lush flowers, delicate lace, pops of matte gold, romantic calligraphy, and just a hint of rustic were all inspiration for this shoot! With beautiful floral details like scrawling letters to hang on the back of the bride and groom’s chair to our open air floral escort card frame to the natural garland spilling over the farm table, we knew that romance would be abundant!

The bride was dressed in a simple lace gown, hair pulled back in an effortlessly intricate braid. The invitation suite was subtle and beautiful with sweet calligraphy and touches of watercolor to match the cake display. Combined with a variety of stunning centerpieces and classic ivory place settings, the satin gold finish of the flatware and ombre glassware brought the perfect balance of sophistication to life in the lush courtyard!

With a focus on stunning florals and the natural beauty of the venue, our shoot served as inspiration for couples with a love of natural elegance and understated details.

Head to The Vault for even more wedding inspiration!

Bright + Cheery New England Spring Wedding

June means wedding season, and wedding season means peonies (which just so happen to be my very favorite flower). So it’s no surprise that I love this wedding with the bride’s bouquet of fluffy white peonies and the buttery yellow and soft blush color scheme that plays up The Commons 1854’s French-inspired ballroom. Add in a sweet couple and photographs by Ruth Eileen Photography, and you have everything needed for a beautiful wedding. See it all here.

From the Bride… When I met Jonathan, I knew he was the other part of me, my perfect counterpart and that our wedding would reflect the romantic part of us we had discovered in one another. While we love modern art and technology we have a certain timelessness that shapes who we are as a couple. We both stand strong on our spiritual beliefs and trust in a love that is pure, holy and dignified. When we started planning our wedding, we knew the look and feel would reflect these virtues that we live our life by as well. We wanted to pick colors that were bright and simple, resembling the redemption that we felt on our wedding day.

Pastel yellow floor length bridesmaid dresses, Chantilly lace gown, fluffy white peonies, baby’s breath, bow ties and blush accents were added to our wedding palette with such ease. Both our church ceremony and reception locations were modeled after designs from the 1800’s and we LOVED that it represents our home in New England that is full of history, culture and class. There were white high arches, wooden pews and stainless glass in the church I grew up in that created the reverence we wanted for a worship service.

The Commons 1854 was designed after a French era with the ballroom including crystal chandeliers, sleek wooden floors, gold and white crown molding- we loved the clean and classic look it provided. Guests were stunned by the structure of the building and more than satisfied with their decadent menu. Tall skinny glass vases of baby’s breath looked perfect in the beautiful ballroom with scripture verses we created for each table, reflecting our love for God. Jonathan not only designed the table cards, but the seating chart and all the wedding invitations as well (he is a graphic designer). We had fun working together to pick out the content, the wording and the color schemes of all the print work. It turned out better than we imagined and we were grateful that we had our hands in every detail in the end. We had so much fun and everyone danced the night away! We enjoyed a lot of Spanish music and crazy dancing! The pictures reflect the pure joy, love, and complete bliss we felt that day.
