Set in the small, quintessential town that is Wethersfield, Connecticut, Nicole and Kristian celebrated their forever on the most perfect Fall day. This was the kind of setting one can only dream about as it was just the time of year when the leaves have turned and there is still a hint of rich color spread throughout the landscape. It is still warm with that sweep of cool air you invite because it means big warm sweaters and comfy jackets. All of those comfort food favorites are at their prime. Everything was just as it should be!
One of the most beautiful aspects of Nicole and Kristian’s day is how personal and celebrated everything was. Their ceremony musicians were close friends and students that the couple both mentored. Their beautiful wedding party was comprised of siblings and friends who had been in their lives for decades. The details surrounding their wedding decor came from small business creatives whose talent completed the design and added colorful touches wherever you looked.
With no shortage of inspiration, our color palette began with deep, warm colors of blush, cream, marsala and burgundy, dressing the table in big blooms of roses and those to-die-for dahlias. We’re talking very moody and to-die-for colors and details by the always amazing Jakkelyn Iris! Lush greenery intertwined our candles and showcased our hand painted table numbers and hand picked wildflowers graced the acrylic namesakes each guest was gifted to take home. Complementing the inherent wood structure of the barn were drapes of whimsical twinkle lights, crystal chandeliers, and romantic draping to hug the guest tables, thoughtfully designed and created by Drape Art Designs. It was one of those scenes that you can’t tear away from and smile every way through — it made you glow just as our space did! Speckle in Nicole and Kristian who were completely wrapped up in and around each other and it was the best love fest to signify this new adventure!
Behind Nicole and Kristian was one of the greatest, most thoughtful, and hardest working groups you’d ever be so lucky to collaborate with! Everyone brought their magic and art that day and built one of the most memorable days at one of our favorite venues. Lots of love goes to each and everyone as we couldn’t have done it without you!
N+K: here’s to life’s kindness and love always keeping you warm! XO!
