I’ve been looking forward to this wedding ever since Elizabeth and John described it to me over a year ago. They envisioned celebrating their wedding in a rustically picturesque location overlooking the ocean surrounded by family and friends. The pictured lots of personal touches to the day and many emotional moments. And that’s exactly the wedding they created!
They held their wedding at Mount Hope Farm, a historic Inn and coastal farm in Bristol, Rhode Island. Elizabeth arrived first and her mother and John’s mother helped her with her dress.
John arrived soon after. They had a tender first look, then we meandered off to take some posed photos.
It was a gorgeous day for a wedding ceremony, with Mount Hope Bay as a backdrop. Elizabeth and John were each escorted down the aisle by both parents and even their pug Kenny was in attendance.
The newlyweds exited the ceremony to the smiles and applause of the gathered guests, who followed them to the nearby Cove Cabin for cocktails and congratulations… and a few final details such as signing the marriage certificate.
There were lots of personal touches to the day. The couple and their families built the arbor they were married under. Elizabeth also showed her craft making and design talents by making the table numbers, creating wedding favors of vanilla extract, designing the program, making colorful drink stirrers, and even making special ice embedded with edible flowers for the water glasses at the reception! Kudos to Sweet Berry Farm for the flowers and a big shout out to Francesca and her staff from Campo and Company Events who did a magnificent job of pulling everything together. They worked very hard yet made the day feel effortless.
As dusk fell and the moon rose over the reception, Elizabeth and Jake were treated to toasts and treated the room to their first dance.
Congratulations again Elizabeth and John!
