From Caitlin at True Event
… Working on this gorgeous wedding gave us the opportunity to get to know one of the most amazing couples we’ve met and work with an extraordinary team of vendors at a stunning venue which made the whole day come together perfectly for Sonia and Andrew. With cultural elements brought into the ceremony and reception, this wedding was one that we will remember forever. No detail was missed and all of those details were tied together seamlessly helping to create the most stunning ambiance at this sophisticated and whimsical wedding. The traditional Indian attire for the wedding party was a unique and cultural element that was brought in thanks to Sonia and Andrew’s stunning taste and vision for their wedding. The greenery placed throughout the decor of the wedding, including the moss for the escort card table, the beautiful floral arrangement and design, as well as the moss chandeliers hanging throughout the tent, were aspects of the design that added to the elegance of the event and played perfectly towards the color palette of greens, blush tones, whites and gold accents. Sonia and Andrew’s wedding is one that True Event thoroughly enjoyed designing and coordinating and will never forget – all thanks to the beautiful couple!

From Jillian Mitchell… Andrea (Fifi) and Patrick knew that they wanted to throw a bash full of grandeur and it was nothing short of that when they decided on the insanely beautiful Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA. It’s now a state park, but for years was a mansion of the rich and famous with parties thrown every weekend.
From the Bride… The Crane Estate is a place we visit often to take in the most beautiful views the North Shore has to offer. We will bring our children there on our anniversary and show them how for one day we were Royalty. Since the ocean is such a large part of who we are the simple white and beachy theme was a no-brainer and I think it kept the day light and fun. The details of the twine and whale napkin rings, sand dollar bracelets on the girls, little pops of peach roses sprinkled below the massive white hydrangea, and candle light everywhere all came together exactly as I had pictured it months before.

Ah, the Crane Estate. I may be a bit biased as my fiancé’s parents were married there 36 years ago, but every time a soiree held at this charming venue makes it’s way through our submissions door, I’m filled with delight. It has set the stage for seaside elegance time and again, and this beauty from Jenny Moloney Photography is no exception. View the full gallery right here!
From the beautiful Bride…Rich and I first visited the Crane Estate on a cold, rainy November day, but upon first setting foot on the grounds, I immediately fell in love with the old world romance of the place – from the rolling hills, salt marshes, sweeping ocean views, to the sunken gardens. Wandering the grounds, I remember forgetting where we were for a moment and feeling like I had been swept away to some grand manor in the English countryside. I had always imagined our wedding as an organic, warm, and intimate celebration with our closest family and friends, and this landscape felt like the perfect backdrop. With such beautiful natural surroundings, I was interested in simple, beautiful design that would let the setting speak for itself. I selected an organic color palette, rich in texture, embracing dusty greens, soft creams and blush tones, with a few touches of yellow. Throughout the planning process, we were blessed to work with an amazingly talented and giving team who made our wedding more than I could have ever imagined. Vinwood catered our delicious dinner feast, while Hilary Larson from Eat Cake! crafted the most perfect buttercream vanilla cake and cupcakes. In the months leading up the wedding, my mom collected dozens of antique cake pedestals and vintage English teacups and saucers for our dessert tables. Kerianne Steele from Les Fleur styled our lovely floral arrangements, tying my bouquet with hand-dyed ribbon from Froufrou Chic. Sarah Robins Powell’s delicate and airy calligraphy added that something “extra” to our wedding, and I especially adored the little map she created for our programs. All of these details as well as the fleeting moments of the wedding day were captured purely and intimately by our immeasurably talented photographer, Jenny Moloney, and cinematographer, Chris Koch.
