Featured Wedding: Megan and Brett April 23, 2016

Megan and Brett’s adoration for one another was clear from the beginning.  It radiated through them and extended out from each family member, friend, and guest.  Their ceremony at our tennis pavilion was filled with joy and heart, accentuated by the lovely, warm April sunshine that could very well have been generated by those gathered there.  Pale, dusty pinks and vintage, creamy whites made for romantically inspired details.  Even classically passionate characters (and their books) designated dinner table assignments.  From beginning to end this wedding seemed to be the storybook day that Megan and Brett envisioned.

Featured Wedding: Maddie and Will, May 30, 2015

If a couple was ever genuinely relaxed and effortlessly happy, it was Will and Maddie on their wedding day.  These two let their personalities seep through every detail and moment, making for a one-of-a-kind celebration to remember.  The bright blues and hot pinks matched the vibrancy in the air itself.  Guests enjoyed photo booth shenanigans, celebratory cigars, and party music provided by band GQ and The Lady.  The energy from this night just leaps from the photographs.  We wouldn’t be surprised one bit if Maddie and Will’s guests are still thrilling from the sheer fun of this wedding…

Featured Wedding: Tom and Natalie, July 3, 2015

One year ago today, Tom and Natalie exchanged their vows in front of loved ones from near and far on a picture-perfect late afternoon on the vista.  Their infectious euphoria at becoming husband & wife rippled through each guest’s face, resonating in the notes played by the string quartet and wafting in the gentle breeze.  Invitees marveled at the elegantly blithe flourishes, accented by delicate yellows, brilliant blues, and stately golds.  The classic yet distinctive dressing highlighted the Mansion’s beauty, while also creating a tailor-made backdrop to the couple’s design.   From lawn games and photo booth fun to an exquisitely delicious cake, it seemed these two thought of everything to surprise and delight their friends and family.  With their first dance saved until after dinner, they momentarily broke away only to pull everyone out onto the terrace to join them, where the DJ held the dance floor in hypnotic jurisdiction for the rest of the evening.  If we didn’t know better, we’d swear they’re out there dancing still…  Happy First Anniversary to Natalie and Tom!

Featured Wedding: Michelle and David, August 22, 2015

We just loved all the color and life Michelle, David, and their loved ones brought to the mansion — from the heartfelt ceremony on the vista through cocktails and toasts on the terrace, and on to the festive dining and dancing that rounded out the day.  There were hints of teal and deep cerulean punctuating the bright pops of pink, orange, and yellow of all their personality-filled details.  They even had a one-of-a-kind half moon seat for their photo booth! The effusive, infectious merriment of David & Michelle’s nuptials seemed to echo through the mansion long after they had driven off into the night.

Featured Wedding: Vivian and Jonathan, June 27th

This is one of those weddings that proves regardless of the weather, a Wadsworth Mansion event always comes together beautifully. Viviane and Jonathan had an international love story which took them on adventures all over the world so naturally, they incorporated this theme into their day. From the luggage tags as escort cards and favors to the cupcake/ dessert table that was set up with vintage suitcases, there were perfect touches all around that celebrated where they’ve travelled to the place they said “I Do”!

The ceremony took place in the East Ballroom but the rain held off long enough for the couple to take some amazing photos in our tree line at the back of the mansion. Congratulations to Viviane and Jonathan!  May your life take you on many amazing adventures together!

Featured Wedding: Kelsey and Andrew 12/13/14

We are in the spirit of the holidays and thought it would be nice to share something merry and bright with all of you.  Kelsey and Andrews wedding is the perfect way to do that! They picked a very cool date for their wedding… the last sequential date of the 21st century!  With such a memorable date for a wedding, the celebration had to live up to its reputation.  And it sure did!

The mansion was all decked out in holiday decor which Kelsey was happy to incorporate into her wedding.  We don’t see many winter weddings here at the mansion but when we do, we wonder why there aren’t more.  What is more romantic than an intimate gathering with family and friends at a beautiful historic house with roaring fireplaces, twinkling lights, the glow of candlelight, and a newly married couple cozying up on the dance floor?  They had some wonderful winter touches with a hot chocolate bar, personalized Christmas ornaments as guest favors, and a beautiful color palette of whites, golds, gray, and creams to accent the decor that surrounded them.

The couple was married in Clinton, CT and took photos in the surrounding areas before arriving at the mansion for their evening reception of cocktails, dancing, and merriment.  The day was beautifully photographed by Ashley Caroline Photography and catered by David Alan Catering.  Enjoy a glimpse into the lovely details of a winter wedding at the Wadsworth Mansion.  Congratulations to the happy couple!  We were so honored to share in the joy of your day.

Featured Wedding: Larissa and Martin 8/30/14

Larissa and Martin were destined to have an awesome wedding.  When you take into account that the weather that day was perfect, that Larissa thought out every minute detail, and the couple brought the most fun group of people to celebrate – things fell into place flawlessly.  Lets start with the details.  The gray, coral, and gold accents complimented this late summer wedding with that perfect pop of color to our lush green surroundings. A delicious tower of cupcakes and initialed heart shaped cookies at every place setting were unforgettable sweet treats for the guests and the little touches Larissa put here and there all over the mansion, that turned a grand historic mansion into her big historic home for the day.  Take a look at the love, laughter, and fun captured by J. Fiereck Photography.  Congratulations to Larissa and Martin!  We were so happy to host your wedding at the mansion and wish you a lifetime of happiness!
