This beautiful day in the Connecticut Berkshires was a highlight of last year’s season. Nadine and Joe’s wedding was full of luxe details while managing to still be completely approachable and comfortable. Rock Hall Bed and Breakfast looks like a medieval estate, which was appropriate since Nadine has, as her friends describe it, a classic Renaissance beauty. The centerpieces on their family style tables, created by Petal Design Studio, made my jaw drop. Eggplant table number holders and fennel in wood baskets? Genius. I also loved their creative invitations from Jen Simpson Designs and Nadine’s unique dress from Stone Fox Bride. Joe owns a restaurant in NYC, so the food was especially important to them. They chose Fire Roasted Catering who roasted a pig on a spit next to the tent all day and ended with apple cobbler baked over the open fire. But what I loved most of all was the warm ease of Nadine and Joe’s relationship and the people around them. I think my favorite photo from the day is the two of them walking back down the aisle, the way Joe has his arm just casually wrapped around Nadine’s shoulder, it’s just so them.
This wedding was also featured on Snippet and Ink, you can go there for more photos and Nadine’s insights and advice for the day.
