Black Tie Wedding with Watercolor Details

Garden Weddings

It isn’t every day you come across a wedding with a dream team as good as Nick Radford, Firefly Events, and Violet and Verde, so we’re thrilled to be sharing Emily and Matt’s wedding with you all! This creative couple hired some of the Northeast’s most talented vendors to bring their dream day to fruition, using a color palette of neutrals like ivory, blush pink, and pale peach. We absolutely love the result!

From the event designers, Firefly Events: It was such a pleasure to be a part of Emily + Matt’s love story! These two have an energy that is truly contagious, and we were eager to bring their fun and creative spirit to the forefront of their wedding day.

Caramoor provided a stunning natural backdrop for the happy couple to exchange their vows and dance the night away with their nearest and dearest. The ceremony was truly a family affair with Emily’s older brother officiating, her younger brother playing guitar for the processional, and both Emily’s sister, and Matt’s brother serving as maid of honor and best man. In fact, one thing that drew them to Caramoor for the site of their wedding, was the fact that Emily’s Grandpa lives just a few minutes away, and the family had spent time here when Emily was a child.

Some of our favorite details of the night included hand dyed napkins and hand painted escort cards, both in soft shades of pink and peach to offset all the beautiful florals and soft candle light from Violet + Verde. Romantic calligraphy from Anne Robin could be found throughout the wedding, including the invitations, the escort cards, placed at each guest’s seat.

We typically don’t share many engagements, but the combo of gorgeous photos and our obsession with mid century design lead us to this pretty set at the Herman Miller Design Center. The engaged couple also happens to be Justine, who writes Urban Scarlet and her fiance Brendon. Thank you both and Nick Radford for the images!
