Kara & Victor’s Tented Branford House Wedding
Kara and Victor, two of the sweetest souls you will ever meet! They were also so kind, not only to everyone they met, but to one another. Kara considered what Victor would love most in every step of the planning process, truly making this their story. And Vic… well, every time he looked at Kara, you saw him gazing in admiration, so excited to tackle what was next in their adventure, and that didn’t just pertain to wedding planning. In the midst of a medical residency, graduate school, buying their first home, and moving, we had the wonderful opportunity to plan and design their gorgeous tented Branford House wedding!
Honoring her hometown of Stonington, Connecticut, inspiration grew from the shoreline — one of Kara’s most favorite places in the world. At the start, we were shown this painting that our girl was infatuated with, one depicting a colorful scene of a lighthouse wrapped in waves. Loving the simplicity and moment of the photo, we took ideas from the palette and overall feeling of this image.
You would never know it, but the morning of Kara and Vic’s weather was practically monsoon weather. The wind and the rain – we were definitely honoring Kara’s love of the sea that day. Our crew from Newport Tent and Drape Art Designs are magical. There was not a drop that could put a literal damper on their day and seeing everything come to life was blissful and so perfectly ready for two people who deserved the best day ever!
