First wedding of the year!

After two months off for Talia and four for me due to the newest addition on our family, we were very excited to get back into the swing of things. Congratulations to Leslie and Christopher, Esq. and Esq., respectively, on their fabulous winter wedding!

Leslie and Chris were married on Saturday, January 5th at the Newtown Meeting House, which is truly the quintessential New England chapel and such a cozy and darling place in which to say one's vows. Her gals wore blue dresses and carried callas. Early on, Leslie fell in love with snowflakes and with the help of Jane from Just For You Weddings, executed her theme perfectly. Hanging the snowflakes (Pottery Barn via Ebay, I had to ask!) on the doors of Newtown Meeting House made such a statement and really set off the theme of her wedding.

The inside was decorated delightfully with a custom runner, huricanes lining the aisle and votives flickerly softly in the windows. I really loved how Leslie decorated the unity candle table with a custom linen, it had a great effect! Millennium Music provided the ceremony music and played beautifully.

Post ceremony, all the guests were handed lighted wands and they waved them into the night sky as the newlyweds made their grand exit. Sadly, I don't have a photo to post, but it was indeed a sight to see!

Following the ceremony, the reception took place at The Fox Hill Inn, where guests were treated to an extensive cocktail hour menu, a four course meal and a yummy dessert table. Men in Black from Boston played some great sets and kept the party dancing all night long. They even assisted the bridal party in belting out a few favorite tunes!

The Inn was decorated as a winter wonderland with branchy arrangements adorned with snowflakes and hanging tea lights. We overheard many of the guests remarking on how gorgeous everything was. Amanda Taylor of A Taylored Picture was the photographer and we are very much looking forward to her photos of everything!

The entrance arrangement truly made a statement in the intimate foyer of the Inn. .

and the centerpieces were equally magnificant on the tables, especially with the lights dimmed.

Each place setting was complete with a snowflake wine stopper and menu.

Some other fun details! In particular, the snowflake jewel in each bouquet was really the cat's meow.

Congrats again and best wishes for a wonderful life! We loved working with you!
