Real Wedding: A Stylish Summer Soiree

Jewel Photo has quite a knack for taking our breath away with her beautiful photography — she just has a way of making backdrops and her subjects shine! So, when she sent over Nicole and Matt’s big day, we didn’t even have to take a peek before we knew lots of pretty was coming our way. Set at the lush and romantic Eolia Mansion at Harkness State Park in beautiful Connecticut, their wedding looked like something out of a daydream. Green fields, intricate old trees, blooming flowers, and golden sunlight set the perfect tone for their romantic celebration. The day began with a vow exchange at a quaint little white church. They exchanged their vows in a traditional ceremony attended by those near and dear to their hearts. Afterward, they kicked off their shoes and headed to the nearby fields for incredible, carefree portraits of them playing and laughing as they ran through the tall, green grass! The reception at the mansion that followed was a beautiful combination of light pink florals by Stylish Blooms, vintage books, and unique touches, like paper flag escort cards and brownie favors. Carefree happiness filled the room that night, and we know that neither the newlyweds nor their guests will ever forget the fun or memories they made celebrating their story of happily ever after. So, if you need a smile, join us in browsing this duo’s magical wedding day!
