FALL WEDDING STYLE
The Autumnal Equinox was on September 23rd marking the official start of fall so we thought we could give you a look back at a wedding that was almost exactly 1 year ago. Ali and Andrew’s wedding day style is rustic and romantic, using pretty details like lanterns, burlap, and lace.
Ali’s wedding day look is the definition of pin-worthy. A loosely braided chignon with the elegant neckline the lace trimmed Romona Keveza wedding dress. The intricate textures and unique blooms featured in the bride’s bouquet from Dogwood Floral Design are lovely, and we loved how the natural ivory bridesmaids’ dresses helped the pops of color in the flowers to jump out. This burgundy color is very close to the pantone color marsala and we love these deep reds for autumn weddings– it really is a perfect fall color!
COCKTAIL HOUR DÉCOR
The personal style of the wedding party worked with the décor perfectly. As guests entered the house they saw a tall floral design with ceremony programs and a welcome sign. The handwritten sign, escort cards and details around the house were made with help from Ali’s mom! Guests enjoyed His & Her Signature Sips and a selection of passed appetizers and our curated cheese and crudités display.
Our sperry tent was lit with bistro lights hanging from the center poles and a collection of large lanterns and votives with real candles. Using a mixture of farm tables with burlap and ivory runners, and round tables with ivory linens the tent looked perfectly romantic and effortlessly rustic. With just a touch of flowers, some pretty white pumpkins, and birch table number holders this table is both interesting and elegant.
Details After Dark
Ali and Andrews beautiful September wedding was recently featured on Style Me Pretty with lots of gorgeous photos from by Erin McGinn Photography and flowers from Dogwood Floral Design. We love the pretty portraits and details of the day, but we wanted to “shed some light” on the fun wedding details that can keep the party going all night long!
This savvy bride and groom thought of everything for their guests including shawls to keep warm for the when the sun goes down and heart shaped party shades to dance the night away underneath our Sperry Tent.
The perfect weather allowed guests to enjoy the outdoor bar and bistro lighting in our courtyard when they needed a break from dancing.
The night ended with a visit from the Whoo(pie) Wagon where guests could choose their favorite whoopie pie flavor before heading home.
We hope these details after dark inspire you for your own wedding or event!

REAL WEDDING: Jessica & Edward
On a beautiful spring day last May, photographer, Lisa Rigby, captured the magical moments of Jessica & Edward’s wedding day perfectly. The photo below captures the fairy tale romance of the couple and was taken on a footbridge next to the Ipswich River and adjacent to the Willowdale property.
Jessica had a beautiful white lace sweetheart trumpet wedding dress with a rhinestone belt and a traditional tulle veil. The image below displays the dress hanging in the doorway of the library and outdoor pergola where you can see all the intricate details beautifully.
Floral displays designed by Flower by Petros of Ipswich, composed of pink & white roses, carnations and baby’s breath covered the archway shaped arbor used in their ceremony and were used as centerpieces for the rustic wine barrel decor and reception tables.
During cocktail hour inside the estate, guests were offered a variety of appetizers to choose from including a raw bar station and passed prosciutto wrapped melon bites with a balsamic glaze.
Jessica & Edward enjoyed dinner at their sweetheart table underneath our Sperry Tent which is surrounded by our whimsical butterfly garden courtyard filled with tulips and a variety of other vibrant flowers.
All the bright and colorful elements of this wedding serve as great spring-spiration for any couple! If you loved the pictures make sure you check out the wedding day video from Hindsight Wedding Films:
