Topsfield Wedding from Willowdale Estate
June 1, 2011
New England

It's no secret - we love our Little Black Book vendors. They are the best of the best, they have the most amazing services to offer, and they take care of our special couples like they would family. That notion extends to all our LBB family, especially Willowdale Estate. Believe it or not, this quaint venue, situated in Massachusetts, not only housed this charming wedding, but planned and designed the event as well. They do it all! Which is just what this sweet couple wanted. Working with Boston Uplights, fabulous photographer Jamison Wexler, and so many more of the Bay State's best, Willowdale made this day the biggest day of our couple's lives. Click here for more!

The moment we set foot on the grounds we knew that Willowdale was the place for our wedding.  The arts and crafts charm, the attention to detail, and the beautiful gardens were all part of our vision for the perfect wedding day.  We didn’t have to plan anything extra in order to manufacture ambiance; Willowdale already had exactly the vibe we wanted.  The way the light falls on the venue makes everyone look and feel their best; it is as inviting a place as I’ve ever been.

The ceremony was breathtaking.  It’s easy to get caught up in the planning and the excitement of the day, but Ross and I both made an effort to be present at the ceremony and to take it all in.  The stunning courtyard garden and all of our loved ones there with us was one of the most special memories we have.

The overall vision for the wedding was to throw the best party for our friends and family as possible, and to look great doing it!  We incorporated home-made everything whenever we could, and personalized every aspect of the guest experience. From the “Love Drunk Arnold Palmer” signature drink, to the framed family photos placed strategically throughout the venue, to the individualized center pieces, we wanted our guests to feel how much love we put into making this a special event for everyone.  Willowdale provided the perfect backdrop to showcase our personal style.  The event was all about celebrating our marriage, and letting the guests enjoy themselves!
