jubilee weddings

When people ask about my family, I can’t help but excitedly express, “Oh, it’s a big family! Passionate, fun… the best really!” But, you know what? I walk away from each wedding with a little more family than I started off with. The Bozzutos and Marescas were no exception. They not only opened their amazing home, but hearts, to everyone. They are such a warm, tight knit group of people that planning their day felt like the best part of putting together a family holiday, making the day one of the most memorable weddings to grace a summer day. Not only did we have the best setting for Amanda and Joe’s wedding, but their day birthed the idea to host more weddings and events at their family farm, perfectly known as Heritage Homestead right here in quaint Northford. The views of Southern Connecticut are beautifully natural and create the perfect backdrop for any ceremony or tented reception and we cannot wait to get back there for more amazing events!

Their tent from Greenwich Tent Co. and the on site pavilion housed all of our guests that evening. Soft, ethereal draping and gold pendant chandeliers watched over all the toasts and cheers while guests gathered on our various lounges set up throughout both spaces. Instead of a sit down dinner, we opted for a more relaxed cocktail style menu, where the ever-amazing A Thyme to Cook provided spreads of fresh, savory offerings across thoughtfully designed farm tables and hand passed trays. Our bride, Amanda of A. Marie Designs, one of the head honchos behind Heritage Homestead, designed all of the paper and signage for her day. Starting with the textural cotton paper from Copper Willow Paper Studio, beautifully plated with gold calligraphy all the way to the hand detailed mirrors and glass panels, there was no detail left undone.

Amanda and Joe had been together from a young age and their love story still held every bit of admiration and eager anticipation for all of life’s adventures together and this was felt by everyone who knew them! Their smiles were infectious and brilliant. Their excitement overflowing. Better than Batman and Robin, a beach and a cocktail, chocolate and peanut butter, everyone who was in their presence knew this was a duo better than the rest. I was very lucky to work closely with the stunning Amanda and her mom, Kathy, the two most wonderful hearts and spirits you will ever meet. They were one of those families who were just so excited to be getting all of their family and friends together and celebrate. And boy did we! Those fireworks were a surprise to everyone!

Cheers to Amanda and Joe, their lovable, amazing families and the new addition on the way! Thank you for making us a part of your family – we can’t wait to see you all again and look forward to all your amazing property will produce! XO

This pretty diddy here embodied some of my favorite things ever! Colorful whimsy, polka dots, and most especially Katy and Jerimiah!! These two were so sweetly in love and they brought out a smile in everyone they came into contact with. Look at Katy’s expression in some of these photos – don’t you find yourself giggling along?

Summer is all about those bright hues, and we wanted to infuse as much color in our details as we could get our hands on. We added a dash of polka dots because, well, who doesn’t love polka dots, right? Her swiss dot Hayley Paige gown fit perfectly with our story and I will admit I was slightly obsessed. It had all of the playful elegance that matched this girl’s personality!

Take a peek at their story below and fall in love!

Katy and Jerimiah: thank you for allowing us to be a part of such a happy day! We hope your days are filled with endless dress twirling, plaid bowties, and the genuine love we felt so privileged to witness!

It’s not every day you decide to host a wedding in your own backyard, but when you do, you can believe it’s a day we all come to cherish and remember. What better place to celebrate a day in your family’s history than in your own home? The personal details and signature design become so significant to seeing your day unfold. This romantic wedding was no exception in our books!

Set on the family’s private estate, our couple wanted a wedding design the complimented their surroundings.We kept the color story soft and simple: blush, green, and white and infused an organic, romantic style with modern elements. The floral design of this wedding brought about that natural, rustic style with the long, lush garlands with blush and ivory blooms tucked throughout. Our stunning clear top tent, lighting and lounge furniture was a nod to a more clean and modern design.

Our tent was dressed with sparkling crystal chandeliers and clean white draping set in between rows of full bloom hydrangea bushes. The chandeliers and candlelight were enhanced by our white dance floor, creating such a soft, natural glow. The tables were textured with rustic pieces reminiscent of our outdoor ceremony, set in front of the family’s pond, hugged around their favorite Oak tree, which became a personal motif we used in stationery details throughout the weekend.

Trying to merge these two styles of rustic and modern can be challenging, but our all-star creative team was able to pull of the delicate balance of the two. We always enjoy working with the wonderfully creative minds of our industry and each vendor who was a part of this magnificent wedding listened to what the couple wanted and made magic to bring their vision to life!

Here at Jubilee Events, we love all things wedding! Your wedding weekend is a passion project for all and it is more than just the big day. You have all of your closest family and friends excited to celebrate and many times you start the party with your rehearsal dinner! This is the perfect place to bring in more inspiration from your relationship or feature more casual fare.

Our couple wanted a Texas inspired Southern BBQ for their rehearsal, an aesthetic that varied from their modern, organic wedding design. When planning your rehearsal, we recommend talking with your florist about bringing in some arrangements for your tables. Who doesn’t love fresh bursts of flowers? We opted for a blue checkered linen, casual and comfortable, which provided the perfect balance for the pop of sunflowers. Hand sewn handkerchiefs donned as napkins as they sat amidst our candlelit picnic tables. Coupled with the wide collection of cowboy boots and the most savory pulled pork drenched in a homemade barbecue sauce you ever did taste, we were as good as the South!

You might also like to speak with your photographer about coming in for some time to capture the evening so you can remember the look of your guests and the toasts of the evening!

Most of all, enjoy! You’re getting ready for a big day and what better way to dive into the weekend!

Have you ever looked through a post online, a collection of photos, a story and caught yourself grinning from ear to ear? Giddily smiling because you are so swept up in the wonderful memory of an event? That’s how I feel looking at all of these images from Rachel and Sebastian’s dreamy October wedding on the shoreline in Old Saybrook. How can you not love looking at this beautiful couple?!

Working with them and their family was a dream! There was so much love, bliss, and joy surrounding them throughout the entire planning process and it surrounded all of their friends and family on the wedding day. We couldn’t have imagined a sweeter day if we had tried!

From their first look to the last dance, each loving moment was captured by the incredible Bryce Covey. Rachel wanted lots of blush with touches of ivory, gold, and elegance. Sebastian wanted everything Rachel wanted–he couldn’t stop telling us how excited he was to be marrying his best friend! Our tables were embraced in blush pink and adorned with a medley of tall and petite blooms in ivory, green, and touches of pink from the always fabulous Elisabeth at Blush Floral Design. Even the chairs were dripping in romantic ruffles down to the floor.

After dinner, guests filled the dance floor, where our girl, DJ Eko kept guests twirling and celebrating until the end of the night!

It was truly a pleasure to be a part of Rachel and Sebastian’s wedding, and we cannot thank you all enough for the wonderful memories from such a happy day! We wish you nothing but many more happy, loving celebrations for all the years to come!

This wedding…this day was one for the books! Beth and Jeff are one of those couples that make all the work worth it and make us appreciate what we do so much. They are sweet, down-to-earth people, and have such infectiously pleasant personalities! Some of you may know the charming Beth, who recently started Lovely Day Styling & Events, located in New York and Connecticut. Shortly over nine months since their wedding, the vendors still reminisce over this amazing day, which wouldn’t have been nearly as perfect without the creativity behind Beth’s ideas coupled with the passion of all those involved.

Start with the perfect backdrop: Eolia Mansion at Harkness State Park and its lush gardens and gorgeous view of the summer ocean. Throw in a dash of sunshine, (no really, we were jumping through monsoon like rain storms that morning) and a heaping supply of bubbly smiles from Beth and Jeff and you’ve got yourself a day worth squealing over. A big thank you to the beyond talented Katie Slater for bringing her story to life. You may have seen a sneak peek of this fete on Style Me Pretty a few weeks ago, but here is the full scoop!

We had the darling Jane from Just For You Floral Design on our side that day. Beth’s overall vision had a fun twist on a nautical aesthetic, which you can see in the beautiful pastels throughout the eclectic arrangements around the mansion. Many of the details you see, such as the varied tree trunk decor, table numbers, and corn hole games were created by the one and only Mr. and Mrs.

On a cool December afternoon what’s better than reliving this fun, rustic and cheerful wedding of Rachel and Adam from this past June? We loved working with them alongside Rachel’s dotting parents on this gorgeous yellow, ivory and green wedding perfectly placed in The Barns at Wesleyan Hills. They had an absolutely gorgeous day for their late morning Jewish ceremony overlooking the giant willow tree at The Barns.

Some of my favorite details are the day are the subtle infusion of lace– everywhere from Rachel’s gorgeous Jim Hjelm gown, to the antique lace cloth that hung above them on the chuppah, to the lace wrapping around each napkin. Feminane, soft and with a bit of texture, it was the perfect compliment to the rest of their design. Coral Pheasant Stationery + Design created a truly unique invitation suite starting with wooden save the dates that had their intials and a heart engraved along with the date. For the invitations themselves, she created little wooden heart tags which were tied with gold and ivory twine, laced around a band of lace. Love! My favorite little detail was the wooden tags attached to the heart with Rachel and Adam’s wedding website engraved on them.

The reception was gorgeous with tan linens, rattan chargers, vintage plates, pretty yellow napkins and the most beautiful yellow, green and ivory centerpieces by Blush Floral Design in large wooden boxes. The tables were overflowing with garden roses, sunflowers with their petals plucked (the perfect addition of green and brown!), ranunculous and crespidia. Each place setting had a sprig of rosemary and a menu card printed on card stock that looked like wood grain.

Guests danced the afternoon away to my new favorite band, like, ever The Rhythm Shop, who literally couldn’t have been more perfect. A Little Imagination Cakes‘s took inspiration from our save the date and created the cutest most delicious cupcakes you’ve ever seen, displayed on tree trunks and wooden circles. Guests took hope chocolate covered oreos (Rachel’s favorite!) in pretty kraft paper boxes.

A big thank you to Carla Ten Eyck and Buzz Media Company for capture the still and motion photography for the day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Congrats Rachel and Adam! It was such a pleasure working with you both. Wishing you many, many more moments exactly like this wonderful day. XO

Sandy and Mike’s wedding was a day that reminded me why I love my job so much; from seeing their vision come to life, to spending time with their adorable and funny families, I got to know the two of them like friends over the course of a year and consider them to be just that. It was a beautiful September evening at one of our favorite vineyards in Connecticut with one of the most incredible sunsets of the year. Surrounded by 80 of their closest family and friends, they exchanged vows amongst the vines and danced the night away under a romantically lit Sperry Tent. Sandy has undeniable style, and when she came to me with her inspiration, I instantly fell in love with her color palette. It was unique, different, fun, and colorful– and Elisabeth at BLUSH Floral Design really embraced all these elements. I have so many favorite details from this wedding but my absolute favorite was the quote on the program cover, calligraphed by our friend Elizabeth Porcher Jones, that read “It takes two when it use to take one.”

Sandy wrote about her wedding for Style Me Pretty and I wanted to share her perspective of the day…

From the bride...We had a small wedding of less than 100 people, as we really wanted an intimate evening with our closest friends and family. We chose Jonathan Edwards Winery because we are big wine people, and we thought the place had a great mix of Connecticut charm and outdoor elegance. September is the perfect time to get married there, as the grapes are almost fully grown, and the weather is mild. Since many of Mike’s friends and family members live on the West Coast, it was exciting to show them the beauty of New England. The natural, understated beauty of the venue also allowed me to design my own space from the ground up, not only for the ceremony, but inside the gorgeous Sperry tent for the reception. I worked closely with Candice of Jubilee Events to make my vision come to life and loved every minute of it. I didn’t want to go with the typical dark, fall color palette, and chose to mix pops of colors and textures. I have a real love for beautiful typography and had calligraphy strewn throughout the wedding. My Amsale “Dahlia” gown served as a great inspiration for everything, from the floral design and the wedding cake to the welcome bags I designed. We included a lot of thoughtful details that had special meaning for us as a couple. We had succulents throughout the space as a nod to Mike’s home state of Arizona and a tequila signature cocktail to represent our shared love for Mexico (I studied abroad there, and Mike lived there for five years). Robert & Kathleen Photographers captured our day so beautifully, and thanks to them and the rest of our wonderful vendors, we had a lovely wedding day!

And now, the beautiful images by one of our favorite photographers, Robert and Kathleen.. and the wonderful video by our friend Mike Cyr of Buzz Media Company.

A huge, heartfelt thank you to all our amazing creatives that made this wedding one of the most beautiful events we’ve ever had the pleasure of being a part of. I can’t stretch my arms wide enough to thank Sandy and Mike for letting me be apart of their personal history. Congratulations guys– love ya! XOXO

Leigh and Kelsey were married on a gorgeous and warm Monday afternoon in June at Belle Mer in Newport, Rhode Island. Not even a trip to the hospital on wedding day (fear not– everything ended up being okay!) could deter these two from celebrating their love for one another. They were surrounded by an incredible group of close family and friends and shared an intimate afternoon of laughs, love, and celebration! Leigh and Kelsey spent dozens of hours crafting their wedding, which was filled with personal paper touches. It was an eclectic mix of vibrant colors against a clean, modern backdrop. A huge thank you to the incomparable Carla Ten Eyck and her team for these stunning images!
