A Jubilee Event: Erica + Jacob’s Shoreline Inspired Home Wedding in Chester, Connecticut

Erica and Jacob’s Classic Home Wedding Inspired by the Water

We love a good home wedding! Logistics are what we thrive on and there is really no better design than the one we derive from learning about our couple. What makes it better is when that couple is as cool and thoughtful as Erica and Jacob. We’re saying it now, but Erica is going to save the world one day!! She comes from a family of kick-assers so I knew I was standing in front of greatness the first time I met her and Jacob, who always had a way of making you feel like good times were at hand.

The Signature Details

Our design was inspired by no better place than our surroundings! With Erica’s family home set waterside, we brought in the colors we’d find throughout the scenery like blues and greens, mixed with some seasonal inspiration, like blush and plum. Being waterside always has a way of making you feel fresh and relaxed and that was a vibe we maintained at this shoreline wedding, up to the very last dance under string lights.

With a raw bar brimming to the top with fresh oysters, scallops, shrimp and more as well as a full pie bar from A Thyme to Cook, guests were in for a literal treat. We couldn’t get enough of Erica and Jacob cutting their pie. Not the biggest fans of cake, they brought in their own personal twist on tradition, which guests are still talking about today! The menu is always one of the most exciting parts to develop because there are so many avenues to travel down based on your season, background, and wedding setting. It’s the unspoken language of love!

One of my favorite details?! Our guest book featuring messages in a bottle. Guests wrote sweet love notes to the beautiful couple to uncover and revisit long after their momentous day! How fun!

Erica and Jacob, thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your magic, experiencing such a breathtaking space, and for being a part of such priceless moments with your family. We look forward to seeing all you amazing souls accomplish!! XOXO
