Eden and Gabe :: Shattuck St. Mary’s wedding! :)

HOLY MOLY was it an amazing weekend of wedding celebration with Eden and Gabe! Their smiles and their warm heart…..I felt as though I had spent and celebrated with a few close friends all weekend! :)

Eden’s vision started out with lush texture and amazing details in her dress. She had a vision of what she wanted her dress style to be and couldn’t find it, so she took it into her own hands, but cutting 2 dresses in 1/2 to form a custom gown by both Melissa Sweet and Priscilla of Boston! :) I mean, amazing, eh?! :) Her day started out with her closest girlfriends as they got ready and beautified themselves at the bed-and-breakfast of a few of her childhood birthday parties! :) After a short Trolly ride, everyone was greeted to the GORGEOUS scape of Shattuck St. Mary’s school (where her Mom attended) and chapel in the woods! :) It was STUNNING! :)

Guests were greeted with incredible greenery outside the chapel from Sadie’s floral (Melissa is a genius with flowers) and the smiles of some of Eden’s closest girl friends as they played the part of usherette (a great way for her to incorporate all of her college girlfriends)! :) An emotional entrance from Eden had Gabe, the military man, in tears as her smile beamed SO BRIGHT walking towards him! After a meaningful ceremony and some intimate vows, the couple greeted guests in the courtyard outside with drinks and appetizers! :)

And the reception site…..oh man! Melissa did it again! Mismatched chairs, ceiling high drapery, custom chandeliers, beautiful garland, barn wood harvest tables and candelabras galore….it was STUNNING! I think each guest (including me) gasped as we entered the gym space of Shattuck School (and nobody could tell it was a school gym, that’s for sure)! :) The rest of the night was full of dancing, hugs, smiles and super amazing desserts! :)

A perfect way to end the night was with a sparkler exit (YAYYYYY, I just LOVE sparkler exits)! :) They hugged their parents, waved their hands and were off on their honeymoon vacation as Husband and Wife! :) I mean, a wonderful and beautiful and perfect way to begin their marriage together! :)

And a DOUBLE HUGE thank you to Style Me Pretty for featuring this wedding in their latest Fashion and Beauty magazine that came out a few weeks ago! If you haven’t already seen it, be sure to check it out…it’s amazing and chalk full of fashion and beauty tips for brides-to-be and wedding guests! :) (Eden and Gabe are on pages 54-63! :)
