True Love: Anthea and Michael September 12, 2014

Romance. I think I took this job because at heart, I am a romantic, certainly as much of a romantic as an event planner. I love asking people how they met, or how they got engaged. I love showing the Mansion to couples who are holding hands, and I love watching a bride and groom on their wedding day when they fall even more madly in love with each other. Giddy almost. This wedding reception was last year on September 12th, just after Anthea and Michael had returned from their honeymoon. They are one of the happiest couples I have ever met.

 

I took the first call from Michael when he was inquiring about the Mansion. When Michael and Anthea came to the Mansion, Anthea fell in love with it, and it was clear that Michael would do anything to make Anthea happy. Their first visit was on June 16th and they immediately booked. They had no time to waste as their ceremony was on August 29th, and between the ceremony and the reception, they went to Hawaii on a honeymoon.

 

Anthea and Michael arrived by a horse drawn carriage provided by Allegra Farms. Just under 140 helped celebrate this special occasion. Anthea and Michael selected Coastal Gourmet of Mystic as their caterer. Mystic Market, an affiliate of Coastal Gourmet, provided the cake. Powerstation Events, a full service event planning company, provided the photographer, videographer, and music. The flowers were arranged by McInerney’s of Middletown. Nothing could outshine the love between Michael and Anthea, not even the fireworks provided by Bluesky Fireworks!

Old Hollywood Glam Photo Shoot at The Wadsworth Mansion

Beautiful Old Hollywood Photo shoot, set on the grounds of the Wadsworth Mansion.

Even on a chilly day in April, with rain in the forecast this photo shoot was bound to be amazing. With the colors, the design, and the setting, the shoot was both exciting and inspirational.

Beginning with a color scheme of Gold, Black and Purple the scene was set by Stephanie Carmody of Tres Chic Events.  With a mix of Old Hollywood elegance and classic touches, every element of this shoot was a perfect compliment to the mansion and grounds.   Dining was staged among the trees where the beauty of nature meets sophistication. The tablescape was accentuated with a suspended chandelier of purple flowers and bouquets by Dragonfly Event. Gold chargers and glassware brought dimension to the display.

The bride exuded elegance in a lace gown that blended flawlessly with the Beaux Art style of the mansion and Dana Bartone and Company gave her the classic Hollywood look. We love it when talented vendors come together to create new and stunningly unique ideas in this space.

We were thrilled to  have this photo shoot take place at the mansion.  It was originally featured on Reverie Gallery and now we are happy share it with all of our readers, enjoy!
