Featured: Michelle and Jared’s Connecticut Shoreline Wedding is on Carats & Cake!

We just shared one of our favorite celebrations on the blog, Michelle and Jared’s Connecticut Shoreline Wedding, which you can find and fall in love with here!

This wedding was our first event of the season with, quite honestly, the best couple, team, and setting to kick off our year!

Our first wedding encouraged me to make a few predictions for what the 2021 season would look like. The reigning notion I came back to was that no matter what the day looked like, everyone would be elated to celebrate together. The vibe would be unmatched, and we’d all walk away from that day, hearts overflowing.

Our GORGEOUS bride, one of the coolest ladies I know, made a speech that day, and I often reference it. She said, to which her guests applauded: “We could be sitting on the ground, eating pizza off of a paper towel, and I know we’d all be having the time of our lives.”

And she’s right! While I promise that it was far more gorgeous than pizza and paper towels (though, who wouldn’t get down with that?!), Michelle hit the nail on the head. The things that mattered most were present.

Despite postponements, constantly changing guidelines, a global pandemic, and last-minute hurdles that never fail to surface, it was the best day because we embraced the best parts. And today? That’s all we remember when we look back!
