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: 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: 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

The mansion was decorated with beautiful centerpieces by Just For You Florists and dinner was served by Coastal Gourmet.

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.

Featured Wedding – Kimberly and Jason 8/3/13

The wedding of Kim and Jay was truly a beautiful thing.  The bride was simply stunning, the groom; handsome, the details; divine, but there was something that really enhanced this day beyond the wedding decor.  And that was Kim and Jay’s genuine excitement of getting married.  We’ve seen so many happy couples but when a bride walks into the mansion for her final meeting with this expression on her face:
you know this is someone who has moved beyond the details, the seating charts, and the floral arrangements.    Brides like Kim, who carry around so much joy and excitement, remind us why being in this business is so awesome.
On the day of the wedding, everything went flawlessly.  Coastal Gourmet planned a delicious menu that included the largest and most delicious plate of paellea we’ve ever seen. Floral Illusions made beautiful arrangements and Keith Alan Productions produced fantastic music for the party.
Kim got ready at the Inn at Middletown which made for some stunning pictures.
Jay and his groomsmen arrived at the mansion for some time (and pictures) with the guys
Then Kim arrived for their “first look”.  The photographer, Eric Foley, coordinated for them to first see each other on the west side of the back lawn.
Love the look on Jays face here
Then the wedding party headed out to the vista where the ceremony was taking place for a few more pictures.
The ceremony space had some really special touches that is worth sharing
With everything in place, the ceremony began…
Following, Kim and Jay took the opportunity to use the mansion grounds for more pictures.
And then the party began!
Now, here is one giant plate of paella!
Congratulations Kim and Jay.  It was truly an honor to host your wedding at the mansion.  We wish you many years of happiness!
