This backyard, Connecticut wedding in Greenwich looks like it walked straight off the pages of a Ralph Lauren editorial. Between the bride's stunning family home, the black watch tartan and gray wool linens, the elegant florals by KD&J Botanica, and the abundance of warm and cozy candle light, True Event created a celebration that fully embraces the designer's iconic, timeless style.
Sarah from True Event worked closely with the mother of the bride, Leigh to create a space that was reflective of the bride and groom's personal style as well as the family. Sarah created a warm, inviting, and elegant space that was an extension of their family home and the backdrop for a fabulous celebration.
The couple wanted to create a winter wonderland for their Connecticut wedding by using organic materials, to make the space feel cozy. They paired black watch plaid & custom-sewn gray wool linens to dress the tables, and Katherine and her team at KDJ Botanica outdid themselves with the abundance of florals, candles, and greenery used throughout the space. A mix of texture, pattern, florals, and lots and lots of candlelight made the tent feel very intimate and warm for their 200 guests.
Heavy gray muslin fabric was draped around the perimeter poles by the talented team at Social Decor, and individually strung glass pendants provided a mirror-like reflection on the ceiling over the dance floor. It created the perfect "starry night" on the evening of the super moon.
During the wedding cocktail hour, guests mingled in and out of the house where the doors of the living room opened up into the cocktail tent. An incredibly talented, lively pianist played festive tunes that set the tone for an incredible evening. True Event and the couple thought about the five senses while they were planning the wedding and hit on each one of them, which truly created a memorable experience for all in attendance.
From the florals to the linens, from the custom crafted cocktails (ice cubes filled with cranberries and mint) to the live music, from Marcia Selden’s seasonally creative, passed hors d’oeuvres to the signature oyster shuckers with trays around their necks walking around during cocktail hour, there was always something happening to wow guests throughout the evening. We cannot forget to mention the surprise disco ball dancers from Shien that helped to lead guests from cocktail hour to the dining tent and get them on the dance floor for each dance set throughout the evening.
Rhythm Collective kept the energy high throughout the night, and guests never wanted to get off the dance floor.
