Emily and Tal were married on Saturday, October 8th, and it was an unseasonably warm and gorgeous day for the fall! The day started out with the girls getting their hair styled at Tu Moda Spa in the morning, followed up with makeup at the bride's home by Heidi Wells. The bridesmaids wore short brown satin dresses and carried bouquets of white hydrangea. The bride wore a stunning lace Priscilla of Boston gown along with metallic peep-toe Jimmy Choo heels.
The ceremony for 130 guests was held at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Westborough. The bride and groom saw each other for the first time as Emily walked down the aisle with her father to Pachelbel's "Canon in D" performed by Atlantic Strings. After the ceremony, guests made their way to Butternut Farm Golf Club, where they enjoyed a cocktail hour both inside and out on the deck. The grounds at this venue are absolutely gorgeous, and portraits of family and the wedding party were taken outside on the sprawling greens. Passed hors d'oeuvres included coconut shrimp, lobster and cheddar on baguettes, beef teriyaki skewers, scallops wrapped in bacon, and spinach and feta triangles.
Music for the cocktail hour was provided by a jazz trio from the band, Legit, who also rocked out with a nine piece band for the reception. After cocktail hour, guests made their way into the Heritage room for dinner and dancing. The room was decorated with delicate paper table number signs, that also doubled as menu and favor signs. Guest tables were surrounded by chiavari chairs and were topped with high and low hydrangea centerpieces created by Melissa of the Plant Bazaar. For dinner, guests were treated to butternut ravioli as the starter, a caesar salad, and a choice of stuffed filet mignon, chicken saltimbocca, or pasta primavera for their main course. For dessert, there were a variety of pastries and desserts provided by Butternut Farm Golf Club, as well as wedding cake from Konditor Meister. The day was filled with laughter, tears, and a crazy dance party all the way until the very very end. Here are some photos that I took of the day!
It was such a fabulous day from the unbelievable weather to the fantastic families. Justin Scrothe from Lucent Weddings was their cinematographer (just wait until you see the highlight video!), and as mentioned above, Kelly Dillon of Kelly Dillon Photography was their professional photographer. Here's a little fun one of Kelly taking a portrait of the lovely couple:
Emily and Tal, it was so nice working with you both and I hope you had an unforgettable honeymoon in Aruba! I wish you both the very best in your marriage together.
