Mandy and Noah are two of the happiest humans we’ve never met. They love life, their family and friends, and each other so very much. We were incredibly lucky to be a part of their wedding day and cannot wait to share photos with you!! We’ll start by giving a massive shout out to Tara Engle, who is such a talented photographer but also one of the sweetest people, and so much fun to work with!
We’ll start our day in the Flower Farm Inn‘s farmhouse where the bride sipped champagne and was pampered by Christine Watanabe. The sunroom, with bright stained glass windows and colorful accents, was the perfect spot for Mandy’s mother to help her into her timeless gown. The wedding dress had delicate beaded straps, beautiful floral lace and a playful skirt. She wore her hair in a loose low bun to show off a dainty diamond necklace and the dress’s low back. She posed for photos on the front porch before walking excitedly towards her groom for the first look. Mandy looked amazing!
Noah found the perfect spot for his crew to prep for the big day. The room had dark green walls, a vintage pool table, beautiful wood furniture and gold accents. He wore a blue suit with a fuchsia bowtie and his groomsman rocked the same outfit but ditched the bowtie. One of our favorite photos from this day was the sweet prayer Noah’s buddies said over him before he walked outside to see bride Mandy for the first time on their wedding day!
The girls peaked into the grassy yard from farmhouse windows to watch the first look. Noah stood anxiously waiting for Mandy to tap him on the shoulder. When he turned around they shared hugs, tears and laughter as they spent moments alone, soaking it all in. Each wrote a note for the other and they read them side by side. We think this is such a sweet wedding day tradition and love that this couple chose to do it together.
The ceremony took place on the lawn outside of an iconic red barn where their reception would happen later in the night. Silkie chickens (and now we’ve got to get at least two of these) roamed free and a flower-covered arch stood in front of one of the properties most established trees. Jones Flowersmith also designed bright and colorful bouquets for the bridesmaids and Mandy. The arrangements were packed full of pinks, corals and burgundy and sprinkled with blue centered anemones and greenery.
The ceremony was short and sweet, with an intimate communion, readings and prayer. Guests nearly jumped out of their seats to celebrate as Mandy and Noah shared their first kiss and Noah high five’d his dad, holding on tightly to Mandy with the other. SO much happiness in these photos! We cannot help but smile each time we look at them. This is how marrying your best friend should make you feel.
One of our favorite details from Mandy and Noah’s wedding day was this beautiful white bicycle with a wicker basket that Jones Flowersmith filled with vibrant wildflowers. The bike was the perfect photo opt and even venue’s butterflies couldn’t resist the opportunity for a picture! The majestic barn had wooden beams wrapped in twinkle lights and vintage stained glass windows. Stunning floral centerpieces stood in the middle of each table and place settings were decorated with trendy grey and blue linen napkins. Mandy and Noah’s sweetheart table was one for the books. A slender farm table with bright blue water goblets and gold mercury votives. The cutest Mr. and Mrs. sign hung from the front. The bride brought tiny wooden hearts to sprinkle across white and navy runners that added so much color to these tablescapes!
Speeches at this wedding were next level. The maid of honor and best man kicked us off with funny stories and sweet wishes. The groom’s mom made us all cry multiple times. And the bride’s father brought gifts for Noah, Yankees and Red Sox hats for the teams they can’t agree on and Celtics shirts for the team they both love! Sweet first dances were followed by the best dance party to end the night. Before Tara left for the evening, we pulled Mandy and Noah aside to cut their wedding cake by Pretty Sweet. Even though this blog will end there the night was packed full of group jumping, singing at the top of their lungs, and an energetic glow-stick sendoff. Welcome to Married Life Mandy and Noah!! We wish you a lifetime of smiles and laughter, a healthy addiction to soccer, and the occasional silkie chicken spotting. You’re wedding was so awesome and we wish we could do it all over again! XOXO
