Connecticut Wedding Planner | Courtney and Mike wed at Guilford Yacht Club

Courtney and Mike were married under the summer evening sun of Saturday, July 14, 2012.Their family and friends gathered on the lawn of the Guilford Yacht Club in Guilford, Connecticut to witness the touching and personal nuptials of the couple. The spectacular views of Long Island Sound set as a backdrop for a picture perfect wedding day. The d├ęcor was pulled together by the bold and beautiful color palette of yellow and navy.  The details of the event were carefully selected and truly brought together the fun and whimsical feel of this summer wedding celebration.

Alissa Dinneen Photography captured so many natural and sweet moments of our bride and groom and truly understood the essence of the wedding.

The ceremony took place on the lawn of the Guilford Yacht Club, nestled amongst the natural beauty of  Long Island Sound. Courtney and Mike were married by Justice of the Peace Sara Carson surrounded by their family and friends.

Following the ceremony, all the guests congregated at the beginning of the aisle for a celebratory photo with the new bride and groom. The guests were able to enjoy the lovely grounds of the Guilford Yacht Club during the cocktail hour on the outdoor patio. Family and friends enjoyed a variety of delicious hors d’oeuvres selections both passed and stationary, while being swept away with the natural beauty that surrounds the venue.

The details of this summer soiree were just the right mix of simplicity and sophistication. The lightly textured, stripped navy and white ribbon could be seen throughout the day from the boutonnieres, to the tied napkins,  the centerpieces,ceremony floral arrangements,  the bridal bouquet, and along the escort card table. The striped ribbon alongside the navy and yellow color scheme brought a distinguished element to the palette.

The reception was filled with the lively upbeat music from Timmy Maia & Friends. Father of the groom, Tom Sansone performed a few songs with the band but the most memorable part of the night was when he performed a song that he had personally written for the new bride and groom. At the reception, guests picked up a pair of yellow flip flops and hit the dance floor. Yellow and white lanterns were strung above the dance floor.

To top off the evening, the newly married couple enjoyed a kiss and a few photos while watching the town of Guilford’s 4th of July Fireworks Display. Some guests joined the bride and groom to watch the fireworks while others continued to dance the night away. Courtney and Mike’s wedding day was filled with lots of love and we are honored to have been a part of it.

What a wonderful night it was! The Sixpence Team would once again like to congratulate Courtney and Mike! We truly enjoyed being a part of your special day.
