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: 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: Jason and Nancy 6/1/13

Jason and Nancy 6/1/13

 

Thinking back on Nancy and Jasons wedding, its hard not to smile and get all warm and fuzzy.  There was just so much LOVE on that beautiful June day – and there was so much to love.   First, Nancy and Jason were just about the happiest couple ever.  Everything about this wedding, from the exuberant energy of the bride, groom, and guests, to the brilliant colors Nancy used in her decor, made this one to remember.  Nancy thoughtfully included touches of her heritage from Ghana with the beautiful bridesmaid dresses and many of the guests arrived in traditional Ghanaian dress.  Do you want to see a colorful spring wedding at the Wadsworth Mansion?  This one takes the cake.  Beautifully photographed by Joshua Dwain Photography, coordinated by Galas Inc., and catered by Gourmet Galley, the pictures really say it all.

Congratulations to Nancy and Jason!  It was a pleasure hosting your wedding at the mansion and we wish you all the best!

Featured Wedding – Melissa and Kevin 6/7/13

Ah, Melissa and Kevin.  They were such a wonderful couple.  So happy to be getting married, so excited to share the day with their family and friends.  Melissa was worried about the weather.  Sometimes, no matter how much you plan, hope, and prepare for your wedding, the unexpected can happen.  In this case, it was rain.  Lots and lots of rain.  This was the ONLY wedding we had in 2013 that was dealt such a torrential downpour of rain that there was no way, not even with a tent, any part of the day would allow people outside.  At the rehearsal, we reassured Melissa that even if it did rain, she would be so caught up in the joy and celebration, it would hardly be noticed.  And looking back, Melissa agreed.

Melissa chose a bright, brilliant fuchsia for her bridal party dresses, and with the colorful accents of her decor, the interior of the mansion blossomed with a feeling of spring that equaled the magnificence of its outside lawns.  She even had a delectable candy table with a variety of delicious sweets that tantalized the guests throughout the evening.  With their wonderful personalized details, the day was truly a success from start to finish.
Melissa got ready upstairs in our Bridal Suite
And had bridal portraits done on the balcony
While Kevin and his men posed for pictures in the loggia
The ceremony, which was supposed to take place on the vista, was moved to the West Ballroom.
Following their “I do’s”, the couple posed for pictures upstairs on the balcony
And then in the West Ballroom with their bridal party
The reception was catered by Aqua Turf with the DJ talents of FM Productions.  Everyone had a wonderful time!  Rain? What rain?!
Congratulations Melissa and Kevin!  It was a joy to be part of your special day!  We wish you all the best.
