RW: Kate + Bryan | Essex Steam Train & The Lace Factory
The weather was spot-on. The church was old + timeless. The entire day was joy-filled, with each moment captured by Ashley Therese Photography.
Kate + Bryan were married in New Haven, at Saint Mary's Church, the second oldest Roman Catholic parish in Connecticut. For their reception, they traveled in an old-time trolley to the eclectic + rustic Lace Factory, in Deep River, CT.
When planning with Amy, Kate knew she wanted to warm up the industrial space of the Lace Factory, which resulted in lots of pinks mixed with rose gold, warm candlelight, + vintage china.
Kate's stunning blush dress was from The White Dress By The Shore, located in Clinton, CT. It fit her perfectly.
I think the best moment of the entire day was when Kate walked into the room in her gown for a first look with her Dad. His eyes filled with tears, as he told her how beautiful she looked and how proud he was of the woman she had become. Bring on the tissues!!
A cozy vintage lounge corner, by Gathered Vintage, for guests to gather + socialize.
The florals, by Earth Blossoms, were absolutely breathtaking. Warm pinks + whites were combined with small succulents, creating a lush + textural look.
Of course, we can't forget about the floral chandelier!
Kate + Bryan danced the entire night, under twinkling lights surrounded by their loved ones - only to break for Ben & Jerry's ice cream... yum!
