Polished Highlights: Mid-summer chic at a classic Connecticut yacht club

The July wedding of Emily & Chris at the Pine Orchard Yacht Club was full of the most charming and thoughtful details! I absolutely love working with clients who enjoy focusing on the small details as I truly believe they make the biggest impact on the guest experience! Every design decision was thoughtfully curated, discussed, and designed including the custom stationery suite by Social Alchemy, the gorgeous rentals from Party Rental Ltd and La Tavola, the unique lighting by Social Decor and the innnnnn-credible flower design by Blush Floral.

(see vendor roll below for all the links to these talented vendors!)

The Pine Orchard Yacht Club was where the bride grew up, and spent her summers on the ocean, and it was the perfect “blank slate” space to build her design of pink and gray and soft subtle summer vibes. And that chapel?!?! Oh, that sweet chapel! The ceremony was held in the Pine Orchard Union Chapel and it could not have been sweeter! (I have a serious soft spot in my heart for sweet ol’ little chapels!)

A few of my absolute favorite details include the swizzle-stick escort cards sitting in a glass of rose (greeting guests as they arrived to cocktail hour- does anything sound more refreshing on a hot summer day?!), the charming bird holders for the table numbers, the soft pink napkin and the individual guest names on the top of each one- serving double duty as a place card too, the big-statement chandelier orbs and how they reflected against the mirror in the ballroom, and the FLOWERS! I could gush about the flowers but I think the photos below speak for themselves! It sure was a beautiful day and we were thrilled to be a part of it!
