From the Bride… Planning for our wedding day was a much-needed distraction from the fact that William was deployed overseas. Missing him fueled my desire to create a day that celebrated our story, past, present and future. #VlovesW became more than just a wedding hashtag, but a mission to create a day that showed him just how much I love and appreciate him. From the date chosen to the color of the groomsmen’s socks, every detail had meaning.
William’s love of history and my appreciation of architectural design made Linden Place Museum the perfect venue. The fact that it was located in Rhode Island, where we first met, made it even more perfect. From there, everything else seemed to fall into place. Seriously, how could we not be married in a small seaside New England town that is home to the longest continuous 4th of July celebration in America?
Stylistically, we were inspired to create an atmosphere of vintage elegance infused with organic whimsy and undertones of patriotism. We wanted the reception to be a mixture of structured indoor dining and dancing blended with relaxed outdoor lounging. The Linden Place carriage house and rose gardens fulfilled such a desire for a fluid and open setting. Our first dance photographs taken from outside the carriage house doors embody this vision for the day. The VW Photobus parked in the gardens helped to bridge the indoor-outdoor space, and made for a playful addition that provided guests with photo-shoot entertainment throughout the night.
As I reflect on our wedding, I am overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude for the all the family and friends that made our vision a reality. Most of the décor was a labor of love involving many helping hands. From the vintage furniture, to the living family tree, the day was brimming with detailed significance and beauty.Everything about our wedding day makes my heart happy. It was the day that celebrated #VlovesW to perfection.

From Tiffany Medrano Photography… Annie and Tom were married on the most perfect day of Spring, in the presence of their friends and family. They planned their wedding from Texas, choosing to have the festivities take place in New England where Annie grew up. The ceremony was held in one of the many gardens of the Blithewold Mansion in Bristol, Rhode Island.
Through my correspondence with Annie I learned that she was very much inspired by the gardens at Blithewold and so on the day of their wedding we made sure to take time to explore the grounds. Rays of sun poured through the trees and the flowers were in full bloom. Annie’s smile for Tom was continuous throughout the day. It perfectly complimented her romantic, lighter than air, blush-Champagne colored wedding gown. The sun was setting as I watched them walk hand in hand towards the reception and I was reminded of a prince and princess stepping out of a fairy tail to live happily ever after.

From the beautiful Bride… Surrounded by our closest family and friends, we enjoyed a beautiful day in September at the stunning Linden Place Mansion in Bristol, RI. Travis and I met in our college days at Hamilton College in Clinton, NY. We knew we wanted to incorporate our alma mater into our big day and added a few special and subtle touches into our wedding day to remember our college ties. One of our closest friends drew pen and ink inspired pictures of Hamilton buildings which served as our table names, and I surprised Travis with a Hamilton themed corn hole game for guests to enjoy during cocktail hour. Travis and I wanted to achieve a casual elegant vibe for the day, which factored into each step of our wedding planning – from choosing a mix of rustic walnut farm tables and round tables with blush linens to the baby’s breath that lined the ceremony aisle, to the DIY photo booth with Fujifilm cameras and props, to our blush escort cards which my mom hand-wrote, to the gorgeous mantle adorned with vintage boxes, flowers, garland, votives, and mirrors.
A color palette of neutral whites and blush pinks and was carried through from the bridesmaids’ dresses and the incredible florals by Greenlion Design to the tablescapes in the Carriage House Ballroom. Guests were witness to an outdoor ceremony followed by cocktail hour in the East Rose Garden surrounded by the sweet sounds of a string trio. Vintage lanterns hung in the trees while family and friends noshed on delicacies cooked up by the fine folks at Russell Morin Catering. The carriage house was styled with thousands of twinkle lights creating a warm glow overhead while sequined, chevron linens and exquisite flowers in vessels adorned the dinner tables. Before and after dinner Splash! performed for the guests and we proved that elegance can turn rowdy with the proper music!
