My What I love About This Wedding list for this breathtaking Cape Cod soiree at the Wequassett Resort and Golf Club by Eric Laurits would be a mile long. Maybe two miles. I wouldn’t even know where to begin – the bride’s Oscar de la Renta gown? The Mother of the Bride’s gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown? The charming Cape Cod scenery mixed with black tie elegance? It’s impossible to decide what I love most, so I think I’ll just spend the day drooling over all the lovely in the full gallery of images!
From the Bride…Eric Laurtis took the most beautiful pictures of our wedding July 24th, 2011 at the Wequassett Inn in Chatham, Massachusetts.
Buzzie and I met six years ago, and fell in love during our first summer spent together in Cape Cod. Our families both have homes in Cape Cod, so when we got engaged it was a no-brainer that we would want to be getting married in the Cape. My wedding was planned by me in New York city, with the help of my family with all the details. The Wequassett Inn was the most beautiful colorful, and perfect backdrop for our wedding, so I wanted to keep the flowers and the rest of the wedding all shades of white.
My Aunt, Diane Valle had owned a flower store in Boston growing up, and though she retired from that she so generously offered to do my wedding flowers. We spent countless hours looking at magazines for inspiration, and also wanted to celebrate the natural beauty and flowers that are at the Cape.
I am a buyer at Saks Fifth Avenue, so I was obsessed with finding the perfect dress and bridesmaid dresses. My dress was Oscar de la Renta, I tried on the runway sample, 1 week after the spring 2011 collections walked, and ordered that dress immediately. I scoured the marketplace for the perfect bridesmaid dresses, and finally picked those amazing Notte by Marchesa bridesmaid dresses off the rack. I then searched for the perfect mother of the bride dress for my mother and found the most amazing green Monique Lhuillier dress.
My grandmother painted small paintings of flowers to give away as wedding gifts as people left. My wedding couldn’t have come out more perfectly, and we had the most amazingly beautiful evening of celebrating love and family!
