I just loved working with Rose and David. First, they sent out little mini bottles of booze to their guests as a save the date. How couldn’t you love them?! And second, they were just a dream to work with. Creative, fun loving, enthusiastic, trusting, funny, and didn’t take life to seriously. Especially when the cake they brought in from the city (personally) was unearthed from the box and looked like it had gone through a minor earthquake. They were fortunate enough to have a great friend, Stephanie Tracy of Stephanie Ann Photography fly out to shoot their wedding. She is an amazing talent!
Rose and David are one of those couples that you just know were destined to meet and get married. With 80 of their closest friends surrounding them, they were joined in a loving ceremony underneath the big tree at The Webb Barn in mid-june. Their ceremony was a mixture of their unique backgrounds and traditions they love. Guests arrived at The Webb Barn in Wethersfield to the waving Scottish flag and ambient sound of bag pipes. Emily’s Catering was on site with servings of refreshing flavored water and juices as guests mingled near the wooden benches. Rose floated down the rose petal aisle, escorted by her mom and dad, to the most amazing string arrangement of Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes.” Their program was an inspired design like old concert programs that had a cheeky spin on the ceremony. Rose made paper cones, filled with dried rose petals, that guests tossed as they recessed up the aisle.
Rose and David worked on so many projects themselves, from their light and airy tissue poms that floated above the dance floor to the amazing scotch bar that entertained guests all night long. When I first met with Rose she said, “I want the barn to feel like the Queen would get married here.” She started with a royal color palette of regal blues and purples, added a bit of gold and guild, and hit the mark. Guests dined family style on a delicious grilled dinner by emily’s catering group, at tables dripping in rich purple linens, gold chargers, and hem stitched linen napkins. Azaela Floral Design created beautiful branch arrangement centerpieces with glittering crystals, bringing a bit of glamour into the rustic setting. Each table had a champagne bucket of Dom that invited guests to pop the cork themselves and get festive.
