One of our favorite rustic weddings took place at Shakespeare’s. From the outside, the venue appears to be an ancient castle, with large wooden doors, stone walls, and green vines. Suzanne and her court looked absolutely stunning; her bridesmaids wore dark dresses and had deep red roses in their bouquets, perfect for a fall wedding. The girls wore sparkly earrings and donned side swept hairdos, so soft and pretty. Suzanne’s mermaid dress was a dreamy confection of white lace, with a sweetheart top, and small train. Her hair fell to her shoulders in loose waves and her simple jewelry was just the right touch.
Suzanne and Chris tied the knot on the Terrace, an outdoor space on site of their venue. The sun shone behind the altar, which was wrapped in crisp white tulle. The first row of chairs were tied with pink ribbons and a trail of rose petals lined the cobblestone aisle.
Chris and his groomsmen looked dashing in their dark jackets and pinstriped gray pants. We love the matching bow ties and white and gray pocket handkerchiefs. What a day of happiness for Chris, in the center of the group, grinning from ear to ear!
Suzanne’s bouquet was a true work of art. Her flowers were done by Posies by Patti and we just loved the mix of full blooms, with roses, peonies, and dahlias. The light colors blended together beautifully, with hints of pink, lavender, and peach. If you take a closer look, the stems are wrapped in a lace fabric and pinned together with several small white pearls.
Suzanne and Chris hired the top wedding band to perform, the John Parker Band. For their first dance, the couple selected the popular song “More Than Words”.
Bride & Groom’s Dance: Extreme – More Than Words
Father and Bride : “IZ” Kamakawiwo’ole – Over the Rainbow,
Final Song of the night: Eddie Money – Take Me Home Tonight
The grand ballroom at Shakespeare’s Restaurant glowed with dimly lit chandeliers and votive candles. Every table was draped in white, with a lacy overlay, and petite vases were filled with roses. The dance floor offered ample space for guests to party the night away to the tunes of John Parker Band.
“The band was great! Our guests enjoyed the band so much that many said they would love the chance to see John again publicly!” -Bride and Groom
