Marci and Paul were married at Chamard Vineyards in Clinton, Conn. “As we started to plan we noticed a theme coming together,” Marci said. “A celebration of Connecticut! When I first moved to Connecticut, I thought it was only temporary, a stop on the way to wherever else I was going, but it grows on you. No place has quite the combination of city and country, the ocean and the woods, the well-to-do and the down-to-earth. Best of all – it is the place where Paul and I met each other and have so many great memories.” The bride wore a sweetheart lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a gray sash and fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with a striped yellow tie and bulldog cufflinks. The outdoor ceremony included a unity candle and a bubble processional. Guests enjoyed sipping on signature cocktails and eating hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour as they wrote down their best advice for the newlyweds on questionnaire cards. Inside the tented reception, tables were decorated with centerpieces of peonies, dahlias, and scabiosa pods, chalkboard table numbers, and burlap runners. Notice the star on the ceiling? Bottles of wine were given out as favors and had a tag that said, “Love is like a fine wine, it only gets better with time,” and buckets were filled with s’mores bags to roast over an open fire. Yum!
