Such an elegant and beautiful room.
Lauren wanted very natural looking makeup and Mirror Mirror delivered!
I headed down to the Glass House to see Eric putting the finishing touches on his look.
We did some portraits in front of this cool piece of art and then I headed back up to the Inn to prepare for the first look.
Lauren and Eric scheduled time and then some extra time just in case so it meant that we had oodles of opportunities for portraits and never felt rushed – SO NICE!
The first look took place on the South Porch as it was still sprinkling
Nancy from A Schoolhouse Garden did a stunning job with Lauren’s bouquet!
The rain stopped and Lauren & Eric were up for getting their feet wet in the garden 🙂
LOVE this one – the Inn provided such a beautiful backdrop
We returned to the South Porch and met up with the families to get all those pictures out of the way as well.
And then the ceremony began! Unfortunately the sprinkling had started again so it was staged inside the Coach Barn
Their parents gathered around the Huppah 🙂
The on-again off-again rain stopped during the cocktail hour so people spilled out into the Courtyard which had beautiful light.
We snuck out for some more portraits down by the water right at sunset 🙂
The reception kicked off with their first dances and also the parent dances
And back out they came when word reached them that the sun was setting and peeking through the clouds!
A few toasts and roasts 🙂
The Chrome Cowboys were a lot of fun and it turns out I know the lead singer Brett – we hadn’t seen each other in YEARS so it was fun to catch up.
A spirited Hora 🙂
Eric’s Dad had fun with their cake cutting 🙂
Onto the details….
Nancy created a beautiful table in the entryway to the Coach Barn that housed placecards at the beginning of the evening and Shelburne Farms tote bags at the end!
Some floral details by the talented Nancy
Lauren & Eric are huge foodies and created beer pairings for their cocktail hour.
The tables were decorated with varied and colorful flowers
Let’s Pretend created a DELICIOUS five course meal that was enjoyed by all 🙂 They catered our wedding as well so it was very fun to see some familiar and friendly faces!
Lauren & Eric – I hope you had a wonderful time in Hawaii – congratulations!!
