Rebecca originally contacted me in the spring of 2017. After taking a break from wedding planning, she contacted me again over the summer. We had a few phone conversations and exchanged lots of emails, as Rebecca and her fiancee, Dale, were busy business owners themselves living in Florida. We finally made arrangements to meet in person at her hotel when she came to Connecticut for a visit. She talked about the little bit that she had planned so far for her wedding and how she envisioned the entire weekend going. Her date was Labor Day Weekend, so she was planning an extended weekend in Connecticut with her family and friends. It sounded amazing and I so wanted to be a part of it!
I later created a proposal based on what we discussed she would be needing. There was lots of planning involved with this client because she was out of state. I was looking forward to bringing it all together for her! Rebecca accepted my proposal and I got to work.
Rebecca and her guests started the weekend off with a rehearsal dinner at Rocky's Aqua. Guests were welcomed to the beginning of the weekend ahead!
Then on to the wedding day...
First of all, when she told me her color scheme (fuchsia and navy blue), I couldn't have been more excited! I mean, anything pink is my jam. So, let's talk about these florals from Bethany Florist & Gift Shoppe. SO GORGE! Rebecca had a specific vision in mind for her bouquets and centerpieces, and Rachel completely nailed it!
Since Rebecca and Dale were living out of state, they had a lot shipped directly to me that needed assembling. That included these adorable bonfire S'mores treats for their guests staying at the resort...
And these very personalized hotel welcome bags. They were customized with a personalized cup, tons of snacks, Voss waters, adorable hangover kits, Westbrook stuffed lobsters, and a Westbrook guide.
This arch and ceremony setup was everything! Another job well done by Bethany Florist & Gift Shoppe.
Lisa from Chair Affair was in charge of the linens and the chair bling. And what a beautiful job she did! Totally transformed the room!
Themes Come True was a vendor that Rebecca found to make all of her stationary. Everything from the invitations to the menu cards to the place cards and welcome bag itinerary.
What wedding is complete without flip flops! Quintessential Design & Boutique made this super cute sign for the box I purchased!
Just as the party started to kick off, there was an unplanned interruption...
The fire alarm went off and the entire building was forced to evacuate. Rebecca and Dale were such troopers that they stopped to pose and take a few shots with the fire truck to document the event! :)
After everyone was allowed back in, the party continued and guests had a great time with Luna Photo Lounge, and games and music from Boppers Events!
Thank you to all of these fantastic wedding professionals for making the day so incredible!
