Meghan and Pete decided to tie the knot just minutes from Meghan’s childhood home at the Madison Beach Club. Not only had the beach club been a favorite summer time hangout for Meghan, but it was also the very place her oldest brother had tied the knot years before.
True Event worked closely with Meghan and Pete to incorporate their love of family and travel into every detail of their day. They designed the dining room with the setting sun in mind, using pops of sunset colors mixed with natural blues, grey and whites. Details included a vintage type writer where guests were asked to give their well wishes to the newlyweds, personalized lawn games, and handwritten vintage post cards indicating where each guest was to take their seat for the evening.
Cocktail hour took place on the sprawling veranda, with striped table linens from La Tavola Fine Linen Rental to tie in the nautical theme for the evening. Fleurescent added pops of color into the reception centerpieces, the bridal bouquets, and the historic mantle of the beach club.
After cocktail hour, guests headed in to the dimly lit dining room which set the mood for the rest of the evening. Guests enjoyed a four course meal from La Cuisine, where the couple chose to incorporate cuisine from both of their backgrounds, including the traditional Canadian “Nanaimo Bars” for dessert.
To end the evening guests headed out to the beach where they enjoyed a warm fire by the ocean and cozied up to a pile of Mexican blankets on the beach.
