Will was so snappy in a fabulous three piece linen suit by J. Crew, layered over an even more fabulous shirt and tie. He was absolutely one of our best dressed grooms of the year. They had their first sighting by the flagpole. It was intimate and sweet. I love, love this photo!
The gents wore their own suits, with fishing lewers as bouts, imagine that!
The ceremony took place at five o'clock, on the great lawn overlooking the sound. Officiant Mary Pugh presided and keyboardist Steve Moran accompanied the ceremony. Jen walked with both parents to "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" by Simon and Garfunkle.
Guests were treated to an extensive menu featuring marinated flank steak, chicken roulade with sundried tomatoes, spinach and goat cheese, tortelllini with vodka sauce. The purple potatoes, in particular, were to die for.
Music was provided by Jim Nuzzo of Dance To The Music Entertainment. He sure knew how to keep the floor packed, see for yourselves!

On a cool damp morning in July, we drove up to the Winvian resort to begin the set-ups for our 9 am shoot. We choose the most incredible patio location, overlooking the rolling lawn behind the resort's country barn. The fog was still fairly heavy in the background.
We asked floral designer extraordinaire, Tony from Datura, a Modern Garden to help us create the vision. Tony and Kat, his right hand lady, GOT IT! Just see for yourself:
Sweet Sophistication - Vintage toile in a country setting, juxtaposed by a majestic garden cresent with three Moroccan-style lanterns. A rich palette of amethyst, lilac & cantaloupe are grounded to the landscape by the natural elements of chocolate brown. Lacey textures of the orchids, mimicking the pattern of the toile, adding an air of elegance to the scalloped china, gold leafed flatware and antique stemware.
Katina, thank you so much for including us!

The gallery itself was tiny and minimal, but good things do indeed come in small packages, as inside beheld a fierce combination of talent on those white walls. It was so exciting to see the work of photographers we have worked with the past and those we hope to book weddings together in the future.
Steve and I had a great time taking in all the different perspectives and of love, meeting husbands and kiddies of fellow vendors (Jerome & Jen, Leighton is a doll; Carla that Georgie of yours a total peach), and as well as enjoying a bit of Justin and Paul's special brew. Another treat was the unexpected appearance of one of our clients, who is the grand dame behind The Wedding Embassy, in Watertown.

Following the show, we gathered for champagne and delicous delights by Gourmet Galley who are always spectacular. It was so nice to see Anna as we chatted together about a beautiful tented wedding we are planning together for the spring.
In the Chic by the Shore studio space, dessert called our names. A winter twist on the take home buffet bar sat perfectly on the bay window with coconut puffs, white chocolate covered pretzels, vanilla frosted butter cookies and many other sweets! Elizabeth Hodes provided dessert cake tastings and shared samples of her stunning works of sugar paste art.
It was so nice to see so many vendors we have worked with this year. As the holiday's near it is always a pleasure to take a step back and enjoy an evening of celebration.
Thank you so much for inviting us Beth!
