We have an absolutely gorgeous Saratoga National wedding to feature this afternoon! Laura, the bride, was nice enough to narrate us through the day (which we love so much!)
Wedding colors: The colors that we chose were a mix of light neutrals and blush pink. When we decided to get married in the spring those were the colors that came to mind! We didn’t want anything that was too bold and the lighter neutral colors were a nice compliment to the pretty features of the big windows at Saratoga National.
Wedding inspiration: The inspiration for our wedding was just for everyone to have a great time! We live outside of Boston and had friends and family traveling in from all over the place – Boston, Baltimore, NYC, Vancouver, and London, just to name a few – and it was important to us that everyone could come and enjoy a laid back, fun weekend.
Special traditions: One really special part of our wedding day was that we had so many of our immediate family members incorporated into our wedding – the wedding officiant and reader were Laura’s brothers, the wedding parties were made of up Steve’s brother and Laura’s sisters in law, both the groom and bride’s parents made beautiful speeches and our niece and nephews entertained our guests while walking down the aisle, reciting ABCs during the ceremony, and dancing on Steve’s shoulders at the reception! We also thought it would be special to incorporate vows that we had written for each other. We wanted to add this personal touch to our ceremony because it’s not that often that you get to express in front of family and friends just how wonderful your spouse is, so why not go for it on our wedding day! Though we were both a bit nervous, it was well worth it to write and say our own vows.
Anything else to share: Our one overwhelming takeaway from our wedding was how appreciative we are of each other and the support we have from our family and friends. They mean the world to us and we have been lucky enough to share in so many wonderful times with them. We wanted to have a laid back night that gave everyone the opportunity to come together, have fun and celebrate with us and we are happy to have accomplished that!
Thank you to both families for allowing us to capture your Saratoga National wedding photos!
