The clouds parted, as if on cue, as Wendy and Nicole shared their vows in an emotional river side ceremony. It was a crisp New England Fall afternoon, and the artist who was hired to paint the ceremony from the Lyme Art Academy couldn’t of asked for a better backdrop. Wendy and Nicole had been looking forward looking for a intimate weekend celebration with family and friends, who would be visiting from all over the country. The couple’s personal touches from beginning to end is what set this wedding apart. Wendy hand made everything, from the cloth ceremony cards, to felt feather boutonnieres for all of their guests.
Even though Wendy and Nicole’s wedding was in the Fall, they opted to stay away from the traditional autumn color palette. Linnea created the bridal bouquet with soft pastels- including dusty miller and soft pink roses. The table arrangements were an array of wild flowers, with hand painted pears and Lady Apples displayed on a burlap runner. The cake was a cinnamon apple confection, drizzled with warm butterscotch sauce. Wendy and Nicole wanted everything to be as organic and seasonal as possible, so it was a perfect fit with Chef Kris.Even though the details of the decor were discussed from over 3,000 miles apart, Linnea captured the couple’s Rustic New England theme perfectly. Guests departed with pots of Wild Flower Honey, and memories of an incredible weekend, that we know we’ll remember forever.
