Picture this: You pull up to a stunning historic mansion, leaving your keys and worries with the valet. You are immediately greeted with a smile and a Cosmo as you enter the grand hall, where luscious palms frame the fireplace. The space is filled with beautiful furniture and hidden rooms, begging for festivities and conversations to begin. Fresh-cut florals perfume the air as you make your way to witness the exchange of vows. Surrounded by old brick and springtime warmth, a wedding ceremony unfolds as you feel you are watching a fairytale come to life.
After you laugh, cry, and laugh some more, you make your way to the outdoor terrace where stunning views of the mansion grounds invite you to cocktail hour. A communal table full of friends and family await your arrival under the covered patio while the boxwood bar draws you in for another cocktail. The next thing you know you’re snacking on melt-in-your-mouth apps that include mini lobster rolls and beef wellington.
The ceremony chairs have been cleared and the couple shares their first dance on the same ground they promised forever. Once the song ends, you walk into the main room, where stations of the bride and groom's favorite foods are on display. Decadent burgers, mouthwatering tacos, and an impressive pasta station waiting to be served.
The food is devoured, the speeches have been made, and all there is left to do is dance the night away surrounded by whimsy and magic.
No, this was not a dream of mine, It was Ana and Jon’s wedding at the Waveny House in New Canaan, CT. They wanted their day to feel like an upscale house party with casual vibes but classy style, and we pulled out all the stops to accomplish this.
