Lauren and Eric’s wedding was wonderful – intimate, genuine, beautiful, and simple. The rather drizzly morning and early afternoon didn’t put a damper on their celebration and the day was relaxed and laid back – perfect!
Lauren got ready in the Overlook room at the Inn – a grand and fitting place to prepare for your wedding! They didn’t have a bridal party so it was especially low key with just her and her Mom.

Such an elegant and beautiful room.

Anticipation!

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!

I love this one right before she heads down to see Eric!

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

Eric’s Dad had fun with their cake cutting πŸ™‚

Onto the details….

I loved the Letterpress illustrations they used that matched perfectly with the Farm theme!

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 πŸ™‚ 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!!
