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.

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!

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 – 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!
