A vintage & earthy wedding at Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington, CT

The wedding of Annie & Andrew this past June at Jonathan Edwards Winery was one of those weddings that reaffirmed my belief in true love…..

Annie & Andrew’s enthusiasm for their wedding day was contagious and their desire to create a celebration full of laughter, joy, and a whole lot of fun dictated every decision we made along the way. I was privileged to be introduced to Annie & Andrew by their amazing, too-good-to-be-true photographer Michelle Gardella, and we immediately hit it off. After Annie found inspiration in a vintage-inspired 1920s photo shoot, we hit the ground running and never looked back. Infusing burlap, earthy grays & browns, and touches of red under the canvas of a beautiful Sperry Tent made this design a slightly unexpected combination of colors, textures, and fun. Add in a knockout Jenny Packham wedding dress, individual honey jars as escort cards & favors (lovingly packaged by the brides father who is a novice bee keeper!), a vintage telegram for a wedding invitation, heaps of burlap!, and hand-painted signs from reclaimed wood…every single aspect of this wedding was thoughtfully considered and beautifully arranged.

This was a dream wedding for aPp to be a part of….from the amazingly creative and talented dream-team vendors to the sweeter than sweet bride & groom- we were sad to say goodnight at the end of the wedding. Not to mention the father of the bride’s toast when he included a big shout out and thank-you to their wedding planner….SIGHHH.  Annie & Andrew- thank you for letting us be a part of such an incredible celebration of love and life. xoxo- always.


Until then…aPp
