Wadsworth Mansion Bridal Show 2015

Our 2015 Bridal Show was one of the best yet! We want to thank all of our vendors, as well as all of our brides and grooms for making it such a success! The new fallen snow made the Mansion appear even more magical.

Along with the amazing tables showcasing  flowers and wedding photographs, there was great food, drinks, and entertainment  What more could you ask for on a snowy Sunday afternoon?  Thank you to all of our vendors who donated raffle prizes to help  our brides and grooms plan their special day.

Another very big thank you to our 3 lovely Mrs. Wadsworths: Lisa Awugah, Sarah Gadbois, and Lisa Maino. They were on hand to offer advice and helpful hints to our new soon to be brides. They were lovely and so very helpful.

Another big thank you to all of our vendors who participated and really helped to make this show such a success. Thank you for all you do!

Meet our 2015 Mrs. Wadsworth {All three of them!}

2015 wedding show flyerFB

Every year at our Wedding Show (March 1, 2015 from 11am to 3pm), we invite a select few of our 2014 brides who really impressed us with the way they brought their wedding vision to life.  This year, we once again have three lovely brides who created beautiful, unique celebrations that transformed the mansion into a reflection of their taste and style.  The honorary title of Mrs. Wadsworth, Expert Bride, is given to these three ladies who will be on hand throughout the day of the wedding show to offer their personal experience and expertise in planning a mansion wedding.  What sets us apart from many other venues is the ability to truly create a one-of-a-kind event from the decor, to the food, to the layout of the day.  These three women really took that concept and ran with it to create some of the most memorable Wadsworth Mansion weddings of the 2014 season.  Stop by our table to chat with one of them, and the Mansion staff (Deborah, Jessica, and Rebecca) to learn more about a wedding here.  Then wander around to meet our preferred and recommended vendors and discover all the possibilities of a Wadsworth Mansion wedding.

Now, in no particular order, we’d like you all to meet our three 2015 Mrs. Wadsworth!

Lisa Awugah

Lisa married Kevin on 8/23/14 and their wedding was nothing short of gorgeous.  Every aspect of the day from the table numbers to the wedding cake topper was carefully thought out and executed. We blogged about her spectacular celebration here and then their wedding was featured on Reverie Gallery with some lovely words from the bride herself.

Lisa Maino 

Lisa and Gregory were married on 10/12/14, just when the leaves began to hint at colors of autumn.  She had her ceremony on the vista, cocktails on the terrace, and brought her guests into the Loggia for dancing and merriment.  Her personal touches of a guitar for guests to sign in place of a guest book, her fantastic kids table to keep the little ones entertained, and gold painted mini pumpkins as place cards were some of the creative touches she used to personalize her day.

Sarah Gadbois

Sarah and Joshua were married on 8/15/14 in our tennis pavilion.  She was 100% a princess bride. She saw the mansion, imagined a full blown princess inspired theme wedding, and boy did she deliver.  Complete with a pumpkin shaped horse drawn carriage to carry her to her ceremony!  Sarahs wedding was previously blogged by us here, check it out to see all of her amazing details.

Be Bride Beautiful – The Gowns!!

We are fast approaching the start of wedding season!  Of course, we are excited to see all the creative decor and ideas each wedding has to offer but lets face it, we all really want to see what the bride is wearing.

On February 9th, we hosted a fashion show by Mariella Creations called “Be Bride Beautiful” and boy, did we see some amazingly beautiful dresses!  The turnout was wonderful with every seat filled by brides, bridesmaids, MOB’s and MOG’s, and even some grooms came!  There was so much fashion at the show, there is no way we could fit it all in one post so stay tuned for even more amazing fashion.  But for now, enjoy the gorgeousness of Mariella Creations bridal gowns from “Be Bride Beautiful”

Meet Our 2014 Mrs. Wadsworth {All 3 of them!}

This coming Sunday, February 23rd, we are hosting our annual Wedding Show.  From 11:00a.m. to 3:00p.m. we will open our doors to welcome brides and grooms, and their family, and friends to come meet our hand-picked, best of the best vendors in the wedding industry.  Our goal is to provide all of our future mansion brides the resources to plan a day that is perfectly executed from start to finish.  To see a list of the vendors who will be here, check out this link.  But because we like to go above and beyond, and because we love our brides and grooms so much, we will have an invaluable resource on hand for all of those planning weddings here at the mansion…

Meet “Mrs. Wadsworth; Expert Bride”

This year, we don’t have just one expert bride, we have 3!  2013 was an amazing year for weddings, with over 60 to choose from and every wedding with it’s own unique story, we picked a few brides that really stood out and asked them to come back to discuss their planning process, experience and ideas with other brides thinking of or already planning their wedding here.  Much to our surprise, and delight, all of the brides we contacted wanted to come back!  And we are happy to have them.

So, when meandering through the mansion on Sunday searching for ideas and inspiration, make sure you stop by the booth to say “hi” to our mansion staff (Deborah, Anne and Jessica) and meet our wonderful Mrs.Wadsworth’s!

In no particular order, here they are!

Kimberly
Kim and Jay were married on 8/3/13 in a beautiful ceremony on the vista.  Her wedding was previously blogged and you can find it here.  Kim had such an infectious and joyful personality that translated into every nuance of her wedding and, as you can see from these photos, was a stunning bride and the life of the party!

Elizabeth
Liz and Brendan were married 7/13/13 in a beautiful ceremony at the tennis pavilion.  The weather was a bit precarious that afternoon, but the ceremony went on without a hitch and they were such a fun couple!  Liz really personalized her decor with paper heart garland made out of antique printed book paper and her favors were classic literature books to honor her and Brendan’s profession as teachers.  All smiles and celebration, their wedding really chased the clouds away.

Melissa
Melissa and Joe were married 9/13/13 in a beautiful ceremony on the vista.  Melissa has since become famous as the face of our fashion show “Be Bride Beautiful” and was asked to be Mrs Wadsworth because of her simply elegant style.  Lucky for us, she will be bringing her groom Joe with her as well, so we are excited to have a Mr. Wadsworth too!

Alessandra and Mario – A Beautiful Engagement Celebration

In mid-September, we had the honor of hosting a beautiful engagement party for Alessandra and Mario.  Alessandra, who is the daughter of Mariella Perna, owner of Mariella Creations in Rocky Hill, was blessed with a mother who worked very hard to put together this extravagant affair. Of course, Mariella happens to be quite the wedding expert – seeing as she has her own bridal store – she knows her way around the wedding industry. Her impeccable style and attention to detail resulted in an amazingly beautiful celebration that really set the bar for Alessandras wedding in NYC in 2015!
We loved watching the mansion transform into Mariellas gorgeous vision and enjoyed working with her so much, that we are excited to have her here again, hosting another elaborate affair “Be Bride Beautiful” a couture fashion show featuring the gowns of Mariella Creations on February 9th, 2014!
Please enjoy a peek into the wonderful day that celebrated Alessandra and Marios love.
