Featured Wedding - Kimberly and Jason 8/3/13

The wedding of Kim and Jay was truly a beautiful thing.  The bride was simply stunning, the groom; handsome, the details; divine, but there was something that really enhanced this day beyond the wedding decor.  And that was Kim and Jay's genuine excitement of getting married.  We've seen so many happy couples but when a bride walks into the mansion for her final meeting with this expression on her face: 


you know this is someone who has moved beyond the details, the seating charts, and the floral arrangements.    Brides like Kim, who carry around so much joy and excitement, remind us why being in this business is so awesome. 

On the day of the wedding, everything went flawlessly.  Coastal Gourmet planned a delicious menu that included the largest and most delicious plate of paellea we've ever seen. Floral Illusions made beautiful arrangements and Keith Alan Productions produced fantastic music for the party.







Kim got ready at the Inn at Middletown which made for some stunning pictures.






Jay and his groomsmen arrived at the mansion for some time (and pictures) with the guys



Then Kim arrived for their "first look".  The photographer, Eric Foley, coordinated for them to first see each other on the west side of the back lawn.  




Love the look on Jays face here





Then the wedding party headed out to the vista where the ceremony was taking place for a few more pictures.




The ceremony space had some really special touches that is worth sharing





With everything in place, the ceremony began...







Following, Kim and Jay took the opportunity to use the mansion grounds for more pictures.







And then the party began!



Now, here is one giant plate of paella!





Congratulations Kim and Jay.  It was truly an honor to host your wedding at the mansion.  We wish you many years of happiness!

Featured Wedding: Laura and Jason 5/25/13

Laura and Jason's wedding is another perfect example of how beautiful a mansion wedding can be regardless of the weather.  The mansion was in full spring bloom, bursting with fresh greens and the brilliance of our rhododendrons.


It was a rainy springtime afternoon but a little drizzle didn't dampen the spirits or the beauty of Laura and Jason's big day.  Laura had a beautiful color palate of blush, peach and white flowers beautifully arranged by Blush Floral Design that brightened every corner of the mansion.  The tables and mantels were alighted with the soft glow of votive candles that added that extra touch of warm elegance.  





And look at this stunning yet simple cake!


Along with the flowers, the designs and details of the day added to the beauty of the mansion.



Coastal Gourmet designed a scrumptious menu for guests to enjoy.


Laura and Jason got ready at the Sheraton in Rocky Hill, CT




and arrived at the mansion for their "first look" which was done on the portico because of the rain.



 

The bridal party gathered for some formal shots in front of the mansion




and then it was time for the ceremony!  Sperry Tents had been set up on the lawn just off the patio which is where the ceremony was held.




Following the ceremony, everyone was ready to dine and dance the night away!







Congratulations to Jason and Laura!  We hope your marriage brings you both years of happiness!
