It is with great pleasure that I share this wedding with you! We all know well the damper that came with 2020 and how it affected the wedding world. There was a heavy helping of heartbreak and loss felt everywhere — not a single person went unscathed. A bright spot of 2020? This gorgeous Westport wedding celebrating Liz, Leo, and the loved ones who shared that perfect September day with us!
Though our celebration was originally slated for May 2020, we created a color palette and aesthetic fitting for any season. Taking inspiration from our surroundings, I chose a cool yet sophisticated serenity paired with slate for the base of much of our design. Accents of white, ivory, gold, mauve, blush, and rose brought a touch of femininity to this fete.
I remember creating this design proposal and falling madly in love with the color palette and aesthetic! It is elegant yet alive, dabbled with contemporary yet luxurious details. You know how much we love a tented wedding, so this was just another reason to count ourselves lucky and grateful!
Now the design of this tented Westport wedding is just the start of our list of things to swoon over! Liz and Leo’s relationship is rich with tradition, made evident by the joy their family brought to the day. Thinking of the number of generations present on the big day and the love surrounding this couple makes us agree with the groom’s sentiment. When discussing the possibility to have to postpone again, Leo affirmed that, no matter what, their September date was their day. Despite what it could look like, the most important thing was celebrating themselves.
I am so grateful that we got to bring this day to life and celebrate our couple. After a year of postponements, uncertainties, navigating rules that were constantly changing — some canceling each other out, seeing the pure joy on everyone’s face made every moment worth it!

Liz and Leo, thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of your legacy, and for allowing us to see this milestone come to life!! Wishing you all the love, happiness, and celebration that was present on your day for the next 100 years!
