Chris & Krista’s Wedding

October, the month where all the trees have golden leaves and nature looks so warm when the sun is shining. The perfect setting for a fall wedding. The “Blushing Butterfly” veil was a perfect match for this bride. The look and style of this wedding is truly amazing! Read below the heartwarming story of how this wedding came together, and how one couple can achieve the perfect result and truly show who they are.

“Fall Foliage Wedding at the Webb Barn in Old Wethersfield, CT – Chris & Krista”

My favorite parts of the wedding were the ceremony and the details.
The ceremony was 10 minutes and perfect! We were outside, I carried the same bible that every woman in my family carried on her big day, we were married by a family friend and it’s the only moment when I actually felt jittery and cried like a baby; other than that, I couldn’t stop smiling!

Creating all the finer points with Chris was how our theme evolved. I played the role of designer and Chris was my art director: I bombarded Chris with my Pinterest board, Etsy, blogs, shopping catalogs and a house-full of wedding magazines! He either yeah or nayed my ideas, and there were a TON of ideas! Together, we were able to simplify my barrage of thoughts and create a cohesive vision. We had champagne taste on a beer budget, and that’s why our wedding was so “us.” We created a sophisticated, organic and fun vibe that was inspired by nature and the fall foliage that surrounded us. We only completed projects we knew we were good at and wanted to do, and we trusted our vendors to do a great job. They all went above and beyond! My advice to other brides is to intelligently choose your vendors and have confidence in each others’ talents. Example: Chris is a designer/ art director and I trust his eye immensely, so he created all of our paper goods and website; I adore shopping, so I chose all the outfits. I loved the nature-inspired veil by Sibo Designs and the effortlessly timeless and comfortable Nicole Miller gown. The J.Crew bridesmaids outfits were chosen by the girls themselves (but I loved the vintage burgundy color).

Everyone always says something will go wrong on your wedding day, and we were prepared for that to happen, but, all-in-all, our day really was perfect! It snowed at our rehearsal dinner (in October!), it was sunny and crisp on our wedding day (but our love kept us warm!), and the next morning there was a historic October snowstorm that crushed all of New England! I’d say we were lucky to say the least! On top of that, our guests said our wedding was, “the most fun party” they’d ever been to, and that’s exactly what we wanted!”
