From the beautiful Bride… We knew from the beginning that we wanted to get married in Cape Cod and when we saw Wychmere Beach Club, we knew we found the perfect venue. The wedding decor was kept very simple. The venue’s modern beachy vibe did all the work for us! The windows streamed in natural light, making a simple color palette the perfect choice.

Once the venue was checked off the list, the next most challenging part was The Dress. Since I am a fashion publicist, the stakes were extremely high. After trying on seemingly every dress in New York City, I settled on a simple Lanvin dress in the most stunning lace I have ever seen. It was perfect for the beach… and loose enough for me to eat and drink all night! Paired with metallic chunky heeled sandals, I was able to dance the night away.

We were married by our Brother-in-Law Jeff, who gave a beautifully short & funny ceremony as the dark clouds came rolling over us. Thankfully the rain stayed away just long enough for us to take beautiful pictures on the beach. The weather gods were definitely on my side!

The guests headed inside to a cocktail hour featuring one of our favorite refreshing summer drinks: Cajun Lemonade. Then we all sat for a beautiful meal, ending with a “Key Lime Pie in a Glass” dessert inspired by one our favorite NYC restaurants, Flex Mussels.

The night ended with a bonfire where we all toasted marshmallows for s’mores. Guests took away homemade Limoncello and gift bags with treats from my hometown of Dayton, Ohio the groom’s hometown of Readington, New Jersey, and Cape Cod Gummy Lobsters.

In the end all of the planning & stress were worth it – it was an absolutely perfect day!

Romantic Oceanside Cape Cod Wedding

After six years of adventure, these re-connected classmates wed in what can only described as an authentic and intimately New England affair. A beautiful mélange of all things classic, this Wychmere Beach Club soiree is filled with happy tears and plenty of personality. From the laid-back, family-style, New England “Glam” bake, to their dockside first danceMelissa Robotti captured every moment here!

From the beautiful Bride… Tim and I met in first year at the University of Western Ontario, but didn’t wind up re-connecting until several years after we had graduated and were living back in Toronto. At the time, he was in medical school, and I was working in television but pursuing my degree in education to become a teacher. With one quick “add” and a cute message or two (or 100!) later, Facebook can be credited with starting something that was meant to be all along. What followed were 6 amazing years of adventure, friendship, laughter and love that brought us to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Amongst those beaches were those of Cape Cod, a place Tim and his family had been visiting every summer since he and his brother were babies. Being on the Cape, every August, quickly became our tradition too. We longed for our runs on the beach, catamaran adventures with family friends from New Jersey, dinners at The Ebb Tide, and (several) ice cream cones from the Cape Cod Creamery in South Yarmouth!

When we pictured our wedding celebrations, this was the first (and only) place that came to mind. It has always felt refreshingly familiar, charming, and comfortable to us. We knew we would love to share our love for the Cape with our most favourite people in the world. We also knew that we wanted our celebrations to be simple, authentic, organic and intimately ours: a beautiful mélange of all things classic and a little bit bohemian. As our dear friend so perfectly quoted the British scientist Richard Dawkins at our reception, “Love is both an art and a science”. This, quite serendipitously, became the overarching theme for our wedding.

Having our ceremony and reception at Wychmere Beach Club was out of a Cape Cod dream; everything from the picturesque Wychmere Harbor that served as the backdrop for our magical lawn ceremony, to the beautiful views from the Ocean Room which complemented our laid-back, family-style, New England “Glam” bake dinner. We had trolleys from Cape Destinations transport guests from their various accommodations, this was a perfect opportunity for guests to experience a tour of the area in style! As the second trolley pulled in, the misty rain stopped and we were able to keep things outside on the Hydrangea lawn. We had the pleasure of having Kathleen Geagan officiate our ceremony. We had met with Kathleen at her home the previous summer and instantly formed a beautiful connection with her. She has the warmest spirit and loveliest presence and really brought a level of intimacy to the ceremony that day that we will never forget. We chose not to have a wedding party, but instead asked each of our handsome brothers to stand with us during the ceremony. The ceremony, itself, was filled with beautiful, happy, tears and included an incredibly creative and personal poem written by one of our dear friends. He so cleverly surprised us with a mash-up of our story as told through the lyrics of some of our most favourite songs! The second surprise, one that I had coordinated for Tim, was having his grandmother read a passage from the beautiful children’s book “All the World” by Liz Garton Scanton- a book I had given him one year for his birthday. The ceremony concluded with Tim and I reading each other our personal vows and a dockside first dance to Sam Smith’s acoustic version of “Latch”.

My art teacher self really embraced the DIY projects- everything from the illustrated map of our favourite Cape spots for the French letter style invitation to the various chalkboard signage. I am so lucky to be surrounded by incredibly talented friends and family. My mom, an amazing sewer, made the burlap table runners and also created my “something blue” garter- a piece of her wedding dress lace sewed together with a baby blue ribbon.

The flower vases were ones that I had collected and purchased leading up to the wedding (most of them were on sale from Indigo!) and the beautiful flowers came from New England Gardens. A lovely group of some of my most favourite women helped me transform the flowers into a whimsical reality. We made an event out of it on the rainy Saturday! I painted the watercolour escort cards taking inspiration from a tutorial that I had seen online by Ginny Au and Holly Hollon. In an effort to do add a meaningful touch to each place setting, we put miniature glass bottles filled with Cape Cod sand and a little piece of paper inside asking guests to “make a wish” and then toss it into the ocean before leaving that weekend. This was something I had loved to do as a child and have continued to love doing well into my adult years, friends and family loved that

We were so lucky to work with the ever so talented Melissa Robotti. Her and her second photographer, Erin McGinn, were an absolute dream. What lovely women! We truly felt we had known them forever and so enjoyed, and appreciated, their creativity and willingness to take us around that afternoon to some incredibly beautiful spots in Harwich. They really captured the essence, spirit, and beauty of the day. Some of the moments captured on film are so raw that we have a hard time looking at them! I had never seen Tim cry in all of our years together. We are so grateful to the Melissa and Erin for helping us relive these incredible memories.

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.

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!
