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.

Featured Wedding – Sarah and Joshua 8/15/14

When Sarah arrived at the mansion for her tour, she told us she was looking for the perfect venue for a Disney princess Cinderella wedding.  The moment she walked through the door, her eyes lit up and she knew this was the place for her.  From then on, Sarah was known to us as our “princess bride” and boy, did she deliver!  Sarah and Josh were such a wonderful couple to work with.  They were so in love and just so happy to be getting married that all of the details and planning were just icing on the cake.  Congratulations to Sarah and Josh on the beginning of your happily every after!

Featured Wedding: Linnea and Joey 6/21/14

Linnea and Joey were married at the mansion on a lovely June day.  Everything from the beautiful color palette of powder blue bridesmaid dresses, to the quiet hues of white, peach, and blush was planned impeccably by Linnea and her planner Lindsay at Sixpence for Your Shoe.  Their day was filled with love, laughter, and surrounded by their friends and family, they exchanged vows on the vista and then danced the night away in a Sperry Tent on the terrace.  Everything was captured beautifully by Michelle Gardella Photography and it was just too pretty not to share with you all!  Congratulations to Linnea and Joey!  Thank you for sharing your special day with us!

Featured Wedding – DeAnna and James 5/31/14

DeAnna and James hosted a spectacular vintage themed wedding here at the end of May with so many stunning details; from the pewter vases adorned with gorgeous flower hues of violet and green to the wine bar with hand picked selections from DeAnna.  Every aspect had glamour and elegance (and we loved DeAnnas dress!)

The love and commitment shared by the bride and groom while exchanging the vows they wrote during their ceremony on the vista was so moving to all who were in attendance and their party was one not easily forgotten.  Congratulations to the happy couple and we wish you years and years of happiness!

Thanks to Eric Foley Photography for the amazing pictures!

Featured Wedding – Lauren and Nelson 5/10/14

Lauren and Nelson were married on a typical New England spring day.  We were watching the rain clouds move through the state and hoped they would pass before the bride and groom arrived from their church ceremony.  As luck would have it, the rain let up in time for the newlyweds to take some beautiful couple photos on the terrace.  Lauren and Nelson, with the assistance of Christina from Celebrations by Christina, planned a beautiful celebration for their family and friends with delicious food served by Riverhouse Catering, Flowers by Designed to Order and a delicious cake by Cakes by Donna.  Everything was spectacularly captured by Sweet Monday Photography.  Congratulations to the happy couple!

Featured Wedding – Melissa and Joe 9/13/13

Melissa and Joe were married on a Friday and yes, it was the thirteenth but there was nothing jinxed about this wedding.  It was simply gorgeous!  The weather was perfect, the decor was simply elegant and complementary to a mansion wedding, and the couple, well… they brought with them such joy and love that it was impossible for those in attendance not to get caught up in it.  The photos of this wedding, taken by VO Photographers, are some of our favorites and it was so hard to narrow down the selection for this post.  You know the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” is so true for this wedding, this couple, and the beautiful day they shared with their family and friends.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Featured Wedding: Liesbet and Chris – 8/23/13

 

 

In late August, we hosted the wedding of Liesbet and Chris.  This wedding stood out to us because, quite honestly, we loved the little details the bride thought of from the simple elegance of the dark plumb bridesmaid dresses to the bubbles the guests blew while Liesbet and Chris were having their first dance.  It made for some awesome pictures and was a memorable moment for all who attended.

The evening began with cocktails on the terrace while the couple and their bridal party posed for pictures on the ground
