Lots of fun events to share so I thought I would share two previews. Happy Weekend!
Two families together again to celebrate love and marriage.
I was so excited to see their families celebrating their wedding day on the Fourth of July. The weather didn’t put a damper on this big event. Guests were welcomed to the Madison Beach Hotel on July 4 to celebrate the union of Chelsea and Dan. All the fun of getting ready, first look, family photos, and an indoor ceremony, the bride and groom welcomed their guests and shared in a night of joyous new beginnings.

Nostalgic summer afternoon drive on a long country road. Sunday Driver.
Purring Pottery and Treefort Naturals set up shop at the Colchester Farmer’s Market each Sunday till the fall. I am a huge fan of Jessica’s soaps and had been introduced to Purring Pottery’s beautiful creations through her. Took the family for a long drive on a country road and ended up taking home lovely scents and beautiful new pieces.
Simple. Vintage. Romance. Love and Devotion. A beautiful new beginning.
Darcy and Tom had a phone consult with me last year and summed up they’re personality and style with this, “Thomas is a musician. Eclectic. We are very in-tune with each other and the earth and living simply. Darcy’s dad has been a farmer his whole life. Old school hippy and we’ve known each other since high school. Tom loves baseball and is a huge Red Sox fan. Our wedding is going to be garden themed, simple romance.”
Pulling up the the bride’s childhood home, I felt right at home with the folk art, decor Americana, baskets, primitives, and antique furniture. Farm living at it’s finest. Collections throughout the house, photographs of family and friends, and a huge greenhouse in the backyard as well. Reminds me so much of my childhood and the decor I was surrounded by growing up.
Their wedding reception took place at Belle Terrace at Avon Old Farms following a church ceremony in Southington. Family and friends enjoyed the cocktail hour in the eclectic rooms and cozy living spaces of Belle Terrace. Stained glass windows and dark wood features were softened with floral arrangements, family photographs, and light colored linens for a warm and welcoming family dinner and celebration.
Many congratulations to Darcy and Tom and their adorable son, as they all begin their new life together “officially” as husband wife. So excited to see your family grow and all of the wonderful opportunities in your future.
