Summers in New England may come and go a bit too quickly for my liking but we make them worth it with some pretty fabulous weddings. This truly elegant affair at the historic Linden Place takes full advantage of the natural beauty of both the venue and surrounding area, with every moment captured by Rebecca Arthurs. Soak up everything from the dress details to the sparkler sendoff right here.
From The Bride… I was married on August 31, 2013 at the beautiful and historic Linden Place in Bristol Rhode Island. My photographer was above and beyond amazing. What makes my wedding special? Perhaps dancing the jitter bug with my 91 year old Nonnie or walking down the aisle on a cloudy day as the harpist played “Here Comes The Sun” and the clouds broke a little and the sun began to shine through. Or maybe it was hearing my husband’s personal vows, or maybe it was the surprise boat ride we took. It definitely had something to do with my sparkler send off! So many things made my wedding unforgettable but knowing all of our friends and family were there was the best part.
Glamour can mean so many things but for this Rhode Island wedding it’s all about the sparkle. A classic affair with a dash of sequined chevron or peonies by Stoneblossom mixed with gold rimmed glasses and chandeliers strung from the tree branches. Those little details crafted by the Bride and coordinated by True Event take this wedding from traditional New England to an affair that truly sparkles.

From Rebecca Arthurs…Liz & Alex’s wedding at the historic Linden Place Museum, was inspired by rustic romanticism. A combination of sas and cool, Liz and Alex perfectly compliment each other to make a drop dead gorgeous couple. Their fun personalities came though all day in every detail of the wedding. Rustic farmhouse tables and glowing chandlers transformed the Linden Place Carriage House into a fairytale setting. The flowers by Stone Blossom complemented Liz’s palette of soft vintage hues. With the help of True Event and a team of amazing vendors, Liz’s vision shown through in all of the creative details.
SMPers, get ready to feast your eyes on some seriously pretty flora and fauna goodness. Inspired by vintage Audubon prints, this shoot is the perfect marriage of masculine and feminine, including the wildly beautiful invites from Paper Moss, braided leather hairstyle, rich hues, and even a signature whiskey cocktail. All in all, it’s sweet rustic wedding heaven. We’re sending Erin McGinn, Greenlion Weddings and the entire vendor team a big ol’ virtual hug for sharing this gorgeous gallery with us.
From the vendor team… Mount Hope Farm, a national historic site with over 325 years of history, was the jumping off point for our springtime shoot. We wanted to create ambiance that highlighted the natural aspects of the Farm and the brilliance of the Spring season by choosing elements that complimented the property and all of its surroundings in a fresh and unique way. Inspired by vintage Audubon prints as well as birds, honeycomb, and other springtime fauna our vision seamlessly came to life. Paper Moss even incorporated some of the Audubon inspired prints into the stellar invitation design. We used rich and deep tones everywhere, leather, tobacco leaves, whiskey and wood to bring an almost masculine and moody, romantic feeling to the shoot while still allowing femininity to come across in the sweeping flowers, linen textiles, and gold rimmed place settings. Jennie Kay braided leather into our bride’s hair, and bedecked her Tony Hamawy gown with leather accents, while her dapper groom wore light-weight spring wool and season-appropriate corduroy with brown suede shoes and leather belt. As a reflection of the Farm’s natural abundance and life, farm fresh eggs were hand lettered by Heather Belle as place settings, local honey and farm-to-able ingredients were used in the cuisine prepared by Russell Morin Fine Catering, and Greenlion Design used some elements foraged from the 127 acres of land in the floral design to create a farm fresh vibe that matched the stunning natural surroundings.
