ALL.THE.HEART.EYES. This plum and burgundy velvet wedding is making our hearts pitter-patter and we can’t help but pin tirelessly. The beautiful details go on for days and we love how Jill and Kyle weaved their personalities and likes into their wedding day, including their love for the night sky and how they decided to go for a night time ceremony + embed celestial details throughout their day.
We’ve seen why couples love nighttime weddings as also seen in this Australian wedding – you don’t have to be Neil deGrasse Tyson to love twinkling stars, so it’s not a surprise nighttime weddings are becoming a fave!
From the bride, Jill: I’m in love with all things fall, and I wanted our day to be seasonal, moody, and romantic. I could not settle on a specific palette or theme, so Caroline’s (of Mustard and Fig) electric approach to design was perfect, and she crafted the perfect blend of jewel tones and Autumn. She also hand-made, designed, painted, crafted, almost every detail to our wedding – I never had to worry about my big day because she was always two steps ahead of me!
My first stop for a venue was Harrington Farm in Central Ma and it was also my last. The feeling of that gigantic white barn and old Inn overlooking rolling hills of the autumn leaves was like magic. My then husband-to-be Kyle and I looked over at one another and said ‘this is it’. The next week we booked it for a Saturday evening in October. We worked with a woman named Jess and she was fantastic. She was so warm and inviting and extremely informative and accessible during the whole process! I had so much fun working with Kyle, Jess, and Caroline to carefully make catering, layout, and timeline decisions.
I knew I wanted mix-and-match bridesmaid dresses, but it was difficult to find different dresses, in different styles, in different colors that “worked”. Then, my designer, Caroline, recommended a company called Coralie Beatrix. They specialize in dresses that can be wrapped hundreds of ways – it was just was I was looking for to make sure all the bridesmaids felt comfortable and beautiful. They were wonderful to work with and sent tons of color swatches so that we could select the jewel tone palette that melded perfectly with our wedding vision!
For flowers we worked with Krissy from Boston Pollen whose work is breathtaking. I knew I wanted to focus on Dahlias and rich deep red tones, and she exceeded my expectations. From the bouquets and boutonnieres, to the out-of-this world ceremony arch, I cannot recommend her enough!
We wanted our cake to fit into our eclectic, moody, Autumn theme, so I hired Aunty Ellen’s Creative Confections to make our cake. She crafted a stunning, and delicious, three tier “naked” red velvet cake adorned with a Dia de los Muertos couple, and flowers from Pollen. It was one of my favorite things from that day!
Our wedding day was the perfect golden and sunny day which left a warmth in the air for our twilight ceremony. The sun had just went down when the ceremony started. My dad and I walked down to a beautifully flowered archway to the Beatles, “Blackbird”, surrounded by our loved ones. It was like a dream. My friend Kristen performed the ceremony and did a flawless job. Kyle and I wrote our own vows, and Kyle surprised everyone including me by reading a poem he wrote. I tried not to cry so just kept laughing nervously – I knew I was doing the right thing marrying this guy. We took pictures earlier in the day and got to see all our guests at cocktail hour.Our reception was a non-stop party, and we danced the night away. The rest they say is history! We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding! – Jill, the bride
From the planner and stylist: Mustard and Fig: This wedding was such a pleasure for us to design. It’s a saturated and luxurious palette, Autumnal elements, and thoughtful touches, made Jill and Kyle’s day one of our all-time favorites. From hand-lettered signs and custom paper goods to individually velvet-tied pumpkins and the 8ft moon photo booth, each detail was meticulously crafted to reflect the couple’s eclectic style. Even more special was working with Jill and Kyle. Their love for each other constantly reminded us why we do this in the first place! From our very first meeting, Jill and Kyle expressed that they wanted their wedding to be undoubtedly them – they wanted the day to feel personal, warm, and like everyone was family. Our vendor team was a dream, and we had so much fun working with some of New England’s best! Our favorite part of the day was the ceremony – Jill and Kyle love the night sky and wanted a twilight ceremony. It was lit by candlelight and truly beautiful. Overall, the day was thoughtful, joyful, and undoubtedly Jill and Kyle!
