Teresa + Christian | Summer in the Berkshires

We're back to share more of Teresa + Christian's amazing wedding weekend. You saw how great their rehearsal dinner was, and now we move onto the actual big day! Michaela from Days of May worked with us for the whole weekend, and we changed it up big time for the wedding day so that both events, although at the same location, would feel totally different. The color palette switched from wood tones and all greenery to a mixture of brass, deep reds, pinks, and hints of dove grey to tie everything in and really ground the look of the all wood barn.

Teresa and her sister's dresses were some of my favorites of 2016. There's something about all white that makes a summer wedding really pop. Jacob from Brumley + Wells took some really amazing photos of the girls and of Teresa + Christian's first look. One of my favorite photos is of Teresa, her sisters, Christian, and his twin brother! The perfect family photo.

This wedding was truly a labor of love for all of the vendors involved. Our team built this escort card wall from reclaimed wood meant to stand outside of the bar and created dreamcatchers by hand for each of the guests. A Fabulous Fete made the tags to attach to the catchers and the laser cut "Dream With Us" that we carried back on a plane from Los Angeles! We worked with Tom and Jeremy at Fire Roasted catering to put together an amazing customized menu, including a white gazpacho soup at every place setting when guests arrived. We hand stamped the soup recipe onto kraft paper so that guests could take it home (and they ALL did)! The soup went into vintage pressed glass mini-bowls that our team sourced from various flea markets and antique shops. We mixed round and rectangular tables to give the barn a lot of texture. Michaela made beautiful garlands for the rectangles and tall bud vases in varying heights filled with tons of color for the rounds. Let's not forget the huge chandelier she installed with the help of Julie Seitel!

Another amazing part of this wedding is the German tradition of the bride and groom cutting out a heart and the groom carrying the bride through it. The heart was about three feet high at the most and our 6 foot 7 inch groom carried Teresa through it like a champ!
