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

Congratulations Melissa and Kevin!  It was a joy to be part of your special day!  We wish you all the best.

Featured Wedding: Laura and Jason 5/25/13

Laura and Jason’s wedding is another perfect example of how beautiful a mansion wedding can be regardless of the weather.  The mansion was in full spring bloom, bursting with fresh greens and the brilliance of our rhododendrons.

It was a rainy springtime afternoon but a little drizzle didn’t dampen the spirits or the beauty of Laura and Jason’s big day.  Laura had a beautiful color palate of blush, peach and white flowers beautifully arranged by Blush Floral Design that brightened every corner of the mansion.  The tables and mantels were alighted with the soft glow of votive candles that added that extra touch of warm elegance.  

And look at this stunning yet simple cake!
Along with the flowers, the designs and details of the day added to the beauty of the mansion.

Coastal Gourmet designed a scrumptious menu for guests to enjoy.
Laura and Jason got ready at the Sheraton in Rocky Hill, CT

and arrived at the mansion for their “first look” which was done on the portico because of the rain.

 

The bridal party gathered for some formal shots in front of the mansion

and then it was time for the ceremony!  Sperry Tents had been set up on the lawn just off the patio which is where the ceremony was held.

Following the ceremony, everyone was ready to dine and dance the night away!
Congratulations to Jason and Laura!  We hope your marriage brings you both years of happiness!

Wadsworth Mansion Featured Wedding – Jenny & Tyler

The weekend of beautiful weather (and weddings!) went out with a bang on Sunday with Jenny and Tyler’s wedding. Jenny and Tyler booked the Mansion for their wedding back in January while they were living in Las Vegas, prior to visiting the Mansion! We first met them at our Annual Wedding Show in February and they immediately stood out because Kristy ended up naming her son Tyler, who was born only 5 days later!
Jenny looked absolutely stunning in her gown, and the pink accents of roses and hydrangea were a beautiful backdrop to the white of the Mansion. The couple used different countries, such as Cambodia, Singapore, and Monaco to name their tables. They will be visiting many of these countries on their three-month honeymoon excursion around the world.
Below are some of our favorite shots, taken by Pat. And to view an amazing video of their wedding by Weddings by FortyOneTwenty out of California, click here!
