There is something so fabulous about a preppy, pink and navy, New England wedding. Kind of Kennedy-esque and yet totally chic and modern. Well, this wedding, photographed by the FABULOUS (and I mean fabulous…sweet, kind, so ridiculously talented) Lauren Killian of Person + Killian Photography in Boston, is the epitome of New England Chic. And I heart every last bit of it. Click here to see even more!
From the bride…After a traditional church wedding, we chose my parents’ home for our reception because we couldn’t imagine anywhere more special or more beautiful to celebrate our marriage. It was important to us that our reception be a true reflection or ourselves; our style, interest, and values.
Our vision for the wedding was very traditional New England, reflected in the wedding Party’s attire of navy blazers, penny loafers (san socks) and Marblehead green pants (representation of the groom’s hometown) for the gentlemen; and navy and light blue dresses for the ladies paired with classic pearl strands. The color scheme of Navy and Marblehead green was complemented by pink flowers, and some pink and light blue accents. Our love for sailing was subtly represented by the beautiful Sperry tent crafted from sail cloth, the carrick bend knot napkin rings tied by the groom, and the Carrick bend knot letter pressed into our handmade invitations and duplicated on our programs.
We were lucky to have the talents of our family & friends to make our wedding unique and special- a talented uncle provided music for cocktail hour, and very talented friends created beautiful paper products. True to our values, we ensured that all the food served was ethically and locally produced, and we chose to donate to a local food pantry in lieu of favors. In addition to our personalized style, the emphasis on the party was for all our guests to have fun!
