We are so excited to announce Liz and Bill’s wedding was featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs Blog! Make sure to see the full post here!

Liz and Bill chose to host their wedding at Jonathan Edwards Winery for its natural beauty. The theme for the evening was black tie while incorporating classic elegance. The ceremony was held in the fields of grapes as the Connecticut sun was setting. With bridesmaids dressed in all silky black dresses, the evening was graceful and elegant.

True Event worked with the couple to execute their black tie design into their big day. They incorporated white linen napkins, white with gold rim china, and classic flatware for their table top decor on their natural farm tables. Hana Floral Design used greenery, blush dahlias, and natural roses for bridal bouquets and the garlands down the center of the farm tables. Every aspect of the evening cohesive with the black tie design. Guests dined on some of  Russell Morin Fine Catering most delectable bites, including sweet treats of miniature donuts to end the evening.

Wedding Rehearsal Dinner Protocol

Sarah, the owner of True Event, was featured in Vogue! They have asked the experts their thoughts on the rehearsal dinner protocol. Make sure to read the whole article here.

Are you struggling with who exactly to invite to your rehearsal dinner? Many of our couples wonder if it is proper etiquette to invite everyone to both the rehearsal dinner and to the big day. It can often times be overwhelming to have to accommodate that growing list for the whole weekend. Though, many experts will say if you are having a destination wedding it is best to invite the whole group to the rehearsal dinner.

Sarah, owner of True Event, suggests that keeping the rehearsal dinner to just the bridal party and close family keeps it intimate and prevents this event from becoming a duplicate wedding. A great way to incorporate all of your guests is to host a welcome party after the rehearsal dinner is over. Starting the rehearsal dinner around 6pm, leaves enough time to invite the remainder of the guests to a welcome reception from 8:30m- 11:00pm. The welcome reception should have passed hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and cocktails.

Working with Anne and Will for their wedding day was extra special for us, because that meant we were able to return to the Weekapaug Inn this season! The Inn offers its guests a tranquil and serene location to tie the knot. It is always such a fun experience to plan an event with the amazing team from the Weekapaug Inn.

Anne worked closely with True Event to cultivate her vision for her wedding day. They chose to use mauve, silver, grey, blues and dusty pinks to grasp the organic and coastal elegance she saw for the day. They selected linens from LA Tavola, including baylis rain silver for the round guest tables and the velvet rose runners for the farm tables, that would complement the couple’s style. Hana Floral Design incorporated dusty pinks and hues of silver and greys into the centerpieces and the bridal bouquets. The Sperry Tent was a vision, with Jack Falvey & Associates string of chandeliers hung throughout the tent, swaying in the summer breeze.
