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!

Featured Wedding: Nora and Dave 7/20/13

July was a very hot month.  If you remember, the heat index remained in the 90s and even 100s for the entire month leaving little relief even when the sun went down.  Nora and Dave put a lot of planning and details into their wedding day, they took into account the hot weather and were sure to provide their guests with customized fans and lots of cold beer.  The color palate was simply elegant with yellow and gray and beautiful white floral arrangements for centerpieces and bouquets.  A very decadent meal was prepared by the talented cooks at A Thyme to Cook and as a cool off treat following the ceremony, Vicchitos Italian Ice was served!  

Nora got ready at the mansion...

Nora and Dave were such a fun couple!  The weather was a bit precarious that July afternoon and we were all watching the radar to see if we could avoid the rain for a ceremony on the vista.  There was a bit of a drizzle in the early part of their day so the first look was done under the portico in the front of the mansion.  


Here is their reaction to the rain tapering off...

... and look at this adorable flower girl!

The ceremony was delayed a little bit to wait for the clouds to clear but look how beautiful the sky was when Nora walked down the aisle.  

After the ceremony, the guests stayed cool with fans, italian ice and cool drinks

Nora and Dave had their first dance under the Sperry tent on the patio

And the guests moved inside to dance the night away in the air conditioned loggia.

Congratulations to Nora and Dave on a beautiful and fun wedding!  We wish you all the best!
