Featured Wedding – Jenn and Bryce 7/19/14

On this dreary day, we thought it’d be nice to inject a little sunlight into your afternoon by revisiting a beautiful Spring wedding this past year.  Jenn and Bryce were highschool sweethearts and were so excited to start their lives together.  It was a beautiful day in July when Jenn and Bryce’s family gathered to celebrate their “I Do’s”.  Jen got ready at her mothers house and arrived at the mansion for their ceremony on the vista.  We loved that they included their dog into the photos (we here at the mansion are big dog fans) and even appointed a “dog sitter” who took care of its transportation and care during the wedding.  Jenns color palette of coral and gray beautifully complemented the lush greens of the mansion in July.  We are glad the day was beautifully captured by Perceptions Photography for you all to see!  Enjoy a little peek into a day of laughter, joy, family and friends, and happily ever after!

Featured Wedding: Anna and Jimmy 9/13/14

September is one of our favorite months for weddings at the mansion.  The Hydrangeas begin to blush from the changing of the season and the weather is almost always perfect.  Anna and Jimmy had a beautiful celebration where they were able to take advantage of our beautiful surroundings before the rain arrived and then (as we all know how New England weather can be) when the rain stopped, went back out for more photos!

Before heading off to their ceremony at the beautiful St. Sebastian Church that is located right down the road from us, they had their first look out in our Tennis Pavilion.  They wandered around the property to pose in our stunning treelines and down to the bridge by our vernal pool.  We love how they incorporated our natural surroundings into their photos as both are avid hikers and nature enthusiasts.

The day was beautifully captured by Uplift Photography and we are happy to share these photos with all of you!

Congratulations to the happy couple!  Thank you for hosting your wedding at the Wadsworth Mansion!

Featured Wedding: Lisa and Kevin 8/23/14

Lisa and Kevin had a beautiful and incredibly fun wedding at the mansion in late August.  They were very meticulous in their planning and it really paid off as every detail from the three decorated cakes, to the tennis pavilion where they transformed their ceremony space with a curtain of hanging flowers and crystals (designed by the talented Sharon Elizabeth Florist), to the tent that was beautifully strung with lights.  It was just stunning!  Lisa and Kevin were such a unified couple when planning their wedding; they worked together to create a celebration that perfectly reflected who they were.  The entire day was beautifully captured by Kris Rae Photography and we particularly liked how he captured Lisa and Kevins “first look” in the trees on the east side of the vista.  Take a look at the photos to see what we mean 🙂

On another note, Lisa had the most adorable ring bearer who not only shined throughout the day with the biggest smiles but kept up with the grown-ups with his dance moves!  He was so much fun, that we had to include a few photos of him as well.

Congratulations to the happy couple and thank you for hosting your wedding with us!  We were honored to be part of your special day!

Featured Wedding: Dana and Anthony 7/27/14

Dana and Anthony exchanged vows in our Tennis Pavilion on a beautiful Sunday in late July.  It was a wonderful, colorful wedding celebrated by a fantastic group of family and friends.  We loved the vibrant colors Dana chose that really showcased how the neutral white of the mansion and the lush greens of our sprawling vista compliments whatever color palate a bride selects.  Congratulations to Dana and Anthony on the beginning of a beautiful life together!  Thank you for sharing your special day with us.  We wish you all the best.
