Jarred & Sam Spring Emerald Wedding May 7, 2022
It was wonderful to welcome back Jarred and Sam to The Lace Factory this spring, almost to the year of their intimate wedding that they celebrated with us in my 2021. This time we hosted just over 100 of their closest friends and family for a magnificent celebration. Guests were whisked off to the Lace Factory from their hotel Sheraton in Hartford, Connecticut to arrive for Jarred and Sam's 4:30 ceremony onsite, inside the warehouse. Justice of the Peace and cousin, Rebecca performed the ceremony and it was just a beautiful tribute to their love story! Sam's gown and hairstyle lent itself to 1920's Old Hollywood feel and she was just such a vision!
Spring in New England can always be a bit fickle, but we were so happy to have a great day where guests could meander outside in our courtyard, the gardens just beginning to wake from their winter slumber. Ashleigh's Garden brought lusious greenery in- with whimsical touches of drapey vine and big, dramatic Anemone. The forest green napkins were a beautiful pop of color. The bridesmaids gowns were just stunning in a brilliant green! The photos across the street at Deep River Landing is where magic was captured- Jarred and Sam's photos with the flowering tree in all it's glory, just made for the most perfect spring back drop. While our couple was across the street taking photos, our Cloud Nine Catering team was serving some fantastic seasonal passed apps and their abundant Spring harvest table was served outside in the courtyard. The baked Brie topped with fresh strawberry jam and a balsamic drizzle was a favorite. Soon after, guests sat down for salad and dinner which guests were given a plated choice of boneless braised ribs and the scampi with scallops . The vegetarian option was the Ratatouille with gremolata topping over a delicious couscous timbale. Before the dancing began, the gorgeous, red velvet, two-tier ceremonial cutting cake was served along with mini key lime and chocolate peanut butter cupcakes! Assorted cookies and brownies were offered as well.
The day was simply delicious in every way! Congratulations, Jarred and Sam!
