Drumroll please. Brittany and Casey’s wedding photos have arrived, and guys, they are gorgeous. When Brittany and I had our first consultation, she had plans for a much larger wedding. But as the planning process began, the couple decided that an intimate affair of just close family and close friends on the ocean at Wequasset Resort and Golf Club was truly their cup of tea.
“Subtle Nautical Chic,” is how Brittany described her vision for her wedding day. While that might sound a wordy, I knew exactly what she meant. On Cape Cod, couples can sometimes feel like they need to have the quintessential Cape Cod wedding with hurricane lanterns and beachy elements, blue hydrangeas and a beachside ceremony. But Brittany and Casey preferred Cape Cod as the backdrop, and less the central theme.
We selected the Wequasset Resort and Golf Club to host their 60 close family and friends for the rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception. The weather on May 30th was absolutely gorgeous, with just the appropriate amount of clouds and sun, which were the makings for some truly stunning photos.
The ceremony was held at the cozy Lawn Cove nestled in the center of Wequasset and against the harbor which served as the most gorgeous backdrop. Brittany and Casey read their own written vows to each other, focusing on the growth of their love throughout the years.
One of the major focal points of Brittany and Casey’s weddings were the florals. With May being the season of peonies, Coral Charms and Tree Peonies made an appearance in all of the bouquets and guest table centerpieces. In an effort to tie in nautical hints throughout the design, we selected navy and white striped ribbon wraps for the bouquets, and pops of creamy white Dutch hydrangea (the iconic Cape Cod bloom). The guest tables featured navy and gold menu cards snuggly tucked into navy napkins and the centerpieces were comprised of hydrangea, peonies and coral roses in hammered gold vessels, which played perfectly into the navy, coral, white and gold color palette.
And the newlyweds spent the rest of their evening dancing the night away with their friends and family on a reclaimed wood dance floor on a deck that overlooked the ocean. You cannot top that!
Congratulations to the newlyweds, and cheers to the Bretts!
