A Jubilee Event: Brooks + Kevin’s Preppy Nautical Affair at The Guilford Yacht Club, Guilford Connecticut

Brooks and Kevin’s wedding was amazing– the preppy details, the delicious pub style food for dinner, the gorgeous color story and of course, their wonderful family and friends. I so enjoyed working with them both on this day and we could have never anticipated that Hurricane Sandy would send their wedding plans into a tailspin, leaving their original wedding reception location heavily damaged. In two weeks time we had to make a huge change and thankfully, the wonderful team at The Guilford Yacht Club came to our rescue! Now, looking back, I couldn’t picture their wedding anywhere else.

Madison is an important town to Brooks and her family– she spent many summers as a kid visiting her grandparents’ beautiful home on the water. So, when it came time deciding on the location of her and Kevin’s wedding, they knew that this town with special meaning was the perfect place. The ceremony was held in the heart of town at The First Congregational Church. Brooks and Kevin drove off in their neighbors old Chevy pick up truck for a stellar party at The Guilford Yacht Club.

I loved Brooks’ attention to detail. She really owned some projects and made them her own– everything from the custom pillows she made for each guests, the hand lettered table assignments and signs through out the wedding (does she not have GORGEOUS penmanship?! I told her to start her own business!), and the pennant flags she sewed which we draped throughout our bar tent! Inside the main tent we had long, family style dining with custom made fabric runners (also by Brooks!) and the centerpieces were baskets filled with flowers, designed by Blush Floral Design. It was one of the most beautiful and creative ideas and the baskets were reused from another event in her family!

Guests dinned on a menu truly inspired by pub food like Fish n’ Chips and NY Strip, with condiments designed into the table decor. We even had bowls of homemade mini pickles on the table for guests to enjoy!

gifts_for_the_groom_groomsmen_jord_watches_0000

Sometimes the man in your life can be a challenge to buy for, which is why we’ve started this new blog series “Gifts for the Groom.” We’re excited to highlight products geared toward the male persuasion! Our first product review is of these gorgeous wooden (yes, I said wooden!) watches by JORD Watches. I love the design of this watch in particular– the coloring, the design, and the weight. The makers of JORD Watches are obsessed with using natural materials to offer a unique fashion flare. Their wood watches are one of a kind, premium quality time pieces, hand-crafted with sustainable materials from all over the world. In my opinion these watches can be dressed up or dressed down, an every day piece or a special occasion time piece– and everything in between! They have a variety of wood finishes available as well was watch face colors and styles.

We think their watches make a fantastic gift for your groom– or your groom’s groomsmen! To learn how you can purchase a JORD watch, visit their website at woodwatches.com
