This wedding…! Tess, Jon, and their families are some of the best people you will ever meet! Their personalities were so wonderfully infectious, warm, and a pleasure to be around. They were the best people to work with and their guests mirrored their awesomeness. They lined up some of the best vendors across New England and, boy, did this become a night that will always be remembered!
From the moment Tess and Jon got engaged, they knew they wanted an outdoor wedding, which took place on a day full of sunshine and crisp pre-autumn air. Inspired by Tess’s signature earthy tones, the tables were lined with tall and plush blooms in natural greens, burlap, and plum purple spilling over candelabras and pouring out of iron lanterns from Blush Floral Designs. The rustic, wooden farm tables were dressed in romantic candlelight with the best, freshest fare from our favorites over at A Thyme to Cook. Many months later and guests are still raving about every detail of the day!
One of our favorite memories of the day was early on in the evening when we all witnessed the most beautiful sunset we have ever seen! The skies turned pink and orange and for just a brief moment, everyone took a minute to pause and take it all in. The night ended with a sparkler send off and, as Tess reminisces, they just make you feel like a kid again, and they also make for a really dreamy, almost fairytale-like moment running through them as husband and wife among all of their loved ones.
Tess and Jon, to you and your families, thank you for giving us the utmost pleasure of being a part of such a spectacular and memorable wedding and, more importantly, celebrating with an amazing group of people! We wish you all the best and a lifetime of happiness and beautiful sunsets. XO!

At this time, we all may be getting a little tired of the cold weather. On this picture-perfect day, we could not have been happier with the snow covered grounds! At Gedney Farm, Jubilee Events and many other talented minds joined forces to create an opulent wintery setting, rich with texture–wood and fur being our top two choices. Mother Nature served the color white and we touched it up with more masculine tones of navy, burnt orange, charcoal, and silver. To bring in a more modern look, we laid the furs across our mirrored farm table and aluminum Alloy chairs that were just to die for!
We loved that this design can be extended to any type of event, whether it be a winter wedding, an upscale dinner party, or other social gathering. Often times we see weddings are tailored to a more elegant, glamorous, feminine feel and having a different look for inspiration and ideas is a great way to make your story unique and easily remembered! The dark barn walls were perfect for our vision and the warm glow of our marquee lighting and signs added a pop of fun and creativity to our warm, inviting dinner table, which was overflowing crisp branches bursting out of colorful, natural blooms!
This shoot wouldn’t have been what it was without the team we had–from the gorgeous sweater dress and velvet tux our bride and groom, respectively, wore, to the custom LOVE lighting display over and behind our table to our sweet horse, Mr. Eddison that couldn’t get enough of the camera. Our approach to this shoot was a common idea–to go in and push boundaries, expose more of our creativity, and have fun!
