I basically live for two things: football and weddings. I know, I know… it’s a strange combo. But, every once in awhile those two things merge in the coolest of ways, like in this beautiful East Bridgewater wedding captured by Katie Hall Photography. You see, this darling bride and groom happened to meet at a Patriot’s game – and after a day spent cheering on their favorite team, well… the rest is history. A move to Seattle, an engagement in London and one drop-dead gorgeous wedding later (pretty pink hues + sweet details included), we’re here soaking in all of the lovely. See every last moment the full gallery.
From the Bride… Eddie & I met in typical New England fashion at a Patriots football game. After a year of dating we embarked on a new adventure and headed west from Boston to live in Seattle. It became pretty apparent after the move that we were both in it for the long run and soon after we shared a memorable engagement in London. Thus began the 2-year cross country wedding planning. There was never a question geographically where we would get married, as we both pictured a vibrant New England Spring wedding. Having a shabby chic feel in mind when scouting a venue, The Villa at Rider Country club’s Madera room stuck out. We fell in love with Madera room’s rustic yet polished feel with their dueling fireplaces and exposed beams. We turned to a simplistic approach with decor, partly due to the fact that we were planning the wedding cross country with limited trips back to Massachusetts, but it turned out beautifully. The tables were decorated with rustic birch & mercury glass flower vases filled with peonies, football mums, & spray roses. Candles lined the mantels and the room glowed with amber uplighting, giving off a warm and romantic feel. We BOTH have a love for pink, which played a dominate role in our color scheme, from a bright Raspberry on the bridesmaids to the light pink linens.
Everything about the day went perfectly, from beginning the day pampering with my ladies, to the first look, to our traditional vows, to our very last dance.

Engagement sessions make my heart sing.You can almost feel the excitement of these two cuties through the gorgeous images by Lindsey Rae Photography, and there is nothing I love more than that. It’s the sweet scene of two super-in-love soon to be Mr. & Mrs. – and you can catch all the adorable images right here.
From Lindsey Rae Photography… Janelle and Derek booked me over the phone and so their engagement session was the first time we met. As soon as I saw them, I fell in love with their casual and comfy style, but most of all I enjoyed how much they love each other. Janelle and Derek have been friends since high school, but it wasn’t until college that they discovered their friendship was turning into much more. Derek proposed at the lovely Prospect Park which overlooks Providence, RI and their wedding is set for this August at the gorgeous Linden Place Estate.

An intimate Nantucket wedding at The Chanticleer basically sounds like heaven to me, and one peek at the pretty captured by Henry + Mac and it’s safe to say it looked like heaven too. With sweet DIY touches to make the wedding personal, a candlelit dinner and florals so beautiful they’ll leave you breathless – this Nantucket wedding is a one for the books, and you can see all the reasons why right here.
From the Bride… Eric and I wanted to have a small wedding, to be surrounded by the people we love and care about the most. We got engaged in Nantucket and knew right away that it was the perfect place for us to be married. And as soon as we walked into the courtyard of the Chanticleer, we both knew that was it. It just felt right. It’s absolutely beautiful but felt relaxed and comfortable. It was a bonus was that the food is spectacular. When I started planning the decor for the wedding, my goal was for it to feel comfortable and not too fussy and for the color palette to be soft – pinks, peaches, creams, seafoam greens, gold. Most of our wedding was DIY – we created our invitations, menus, centerpieces (we spray painted the candlesticks gold and all the flowers were done by my very talented aunt). We were lucky because the restaurant is already so gorgeous that we didn’t feel the need to go overboard with flowers and decor. I loved the idea of everything being illuminated with a lot of candlelight, so there were lots of candles everywhere.
I think my dress fit the decor and space perfectly – it was flowy and breezy and super comfortable. It actually isn’t a wedding dress and I’m excited for when I can wear it again! The day and the entire weekend was beautiful and full of so much love. There were definitley some hiccups and and it wasn’t perfect, but the thing I remember most is how happy and loved I felt and that will stay with me forever.
