And OHHH do we have a way to kick your weekend off RIGHT!! Remember that "sailor in the snow" picture from December? Well, we are FINALLY able to show you the whole wedding! We've been holding it off the blog for publication in a national magazine, and we are now able to show you the whole day!
Caitlin & Matt were married on the Yale Campus on a snowy day at the end of December. Matt is in the Navy, so the whole day was made that much better by dress blues & swords! :) Caitlin worked with the absolutely incredible & talented Diana from Jubilee Events and Tony from Datura A Modern Garden for flowers to create a flawless day. And just when we thought it couldn't get any more perfect, the most pristine, fluffy white snow began to fall...adding it's own incredible mark on the day.
Caitlin & Matt, we love love LOVE you guys!! We have never been treated more like part of the family than we were that day with you guys & both of your incredible families. It is an honor to call you all friends!
Today we are SO excited to bring you the beautiful wedding of Genevieve & Elliot at the de Seversky Mansion. These guys were married on a gorgeous (albeit brrrrr fridgity) December day with soft skies & big hearts. Their whole day was like a scene out of Great Gatsby meets Home for the Holidays, and no elegant, regal, classic detail was overlooked. These two loved with their whole hearts, and an amazing group of friends & family was there to witness the whole thing. We are so lucky to have been one small part of such an amazing day! G&E we LOVE you guys!
This post is coming a little later in the day because I just couldn't find a way to narrow down my favorites....Tracy & Andy's day was that amazing! These guys were married last weekend at the GORGEOUS Waveny House Mansion in New Canaan, styled to perfection by the one and only (and amazing!) Stacie Shea of Stacie Shea Events. We had a beautiful (if somewhat freeeeezing) Connecticut day, and Tracy & Andy put together a day that was full of black tie elegance and heart on your sleeve emotion. It was incredible to witness. And we feel so so lucky to have been one small part of their day! T&A, we love you guys! And we hope you are raising a glass right now in Hawaii with those fruity drinks you promised you'd have for us! :)
SO much love!

The dress was white and lace, and it hung in her sister's closet. From the moment that she saw it, she knew that it was everything that she wanted and needed. And nothing more. She didn't need ruffles and layers. Sequins and beading just weren't for her. She had always said it was because she was a simple girl. But everyone around her already knew....it was because hers was the kind of beauty that was its own adornment. The kind of grace that never goes out of style. And right now, the only thing missing was him.
The day was white and gray, and it hung in the air as if it too had been invited for the occasion. From the moment that he saw her, he knew that she was everything that he wanted and needed. And so much more. She wasn't the kind to be the center of attention. Fanfare and fuss just weren't for her. He had always heard her say it was because she was a simple girl. But right then, with everyone around them, he already knew...it was because she was the kind of girl who could change your whole world quietly without you even noticing. The kind of love that takes over when you aren't even aware. Until you finally realize....
The only thing ever missing was her.
Married: Krissy & Stephen
Krissy & Stephen were married on the perfect gray New York November day that is the stuff black & white dreams are made of. They were surrounded by 27 of their closest friends and family, as they stood in front of the City Hall Park fountain and promised a lifetime of soft spoken memories together. And a love that doesn't need to be fancy to be forever. K&S I can't tell you how much we loved being there with you as you start this life together. What you trusted us with is an honor. And what you stand for is an inspiration. My hope is that you will love like this always....quietly and fearlessly and without question.
There are a lot of different ways to tie a bow. And loop over loop, sash against satin....they tried them all. One by one and begin again. Because on this day, of all days, it needed to be perfect. She stood in a room with three generations of women in her life, and together somewhere across the years, they found the perfect fit. A knot that would not come undone. Because at the end of the day they realized what made all the difference... it was the tie that binds.
There are a lot of different ways to tie a tie. And criss over cross, silk against striping....he tried them all. Deep breath in and begin again. Because on this day, of all days, it needed to be perfect. He stood in a room with her father, and promised him that somehow across the years he would always try to be her perfect fit. A knot that would not come undone. Because at the end of the day, he had realized that she was what made all the difference. And when it came to love, he wanted him to know....
Theirs was a tie that binds.
Married: Michelle & Adam
Michelle & Adam were married on a Fall day with just a hint of chill in the air. They were surrounded cool breezes and warm hearts. And a ticker tape parade of falling leaves to mark the occasion. With blue hues and baby white pumpkins, they brought together their perfect day with the help of event designer Candice Milard. M&A, Justin & I can't thank you enough for having us there with you on such an incredible day. It was truly an honor that we don't take lightly. And we will never forget. My hope is that you will love like this always....Always beginning again. And always with a tie that binds.
