A Chic, Romantic Wedding at the Saphire Estate in Sharon, Massachusetts

Diseanna Brown (29 and a private nanny) and Luke Joseph’s (29 and a dental hygienist) wedding was a romantic, modern affair with a soft, classic color palette of ivory, blush and metallic hues. The couple gathered their friends and families at the Saphire Estate in Sharon, Mass., a charming manor house with acres of beautifully manicured grounds, lakeshore views and an intimate garden. The day started with a garden ceremony, where Diseanna and Luke exchanged heartfelt vows they’d written themselves under a fabric-draped gazebo with crystal chandeliers, gilded lanterns and lush arrangements of ivory hydrangeas. A reception followed in the manor house, which the couple and Shane Hassey of Reserve Modern Event Rental transformed into a chic, romantic scene with mirror-topped tables, dramatic crystal candelabras, mercury glass accents and sophisticated, modern vignettes. “Lighting was key in the reception since we were going for a romantic candlelit look,” says Diseanna. “The tablescapes and place settings were kept to ivory linens with classic glass stemware so as not to take away from the dramatic centerpieces throughout the room.” Guests danced the night away to the sounds of DJ Paul Francious, stopping only to strike a pose at Diseanna and Luke’s stocked photo booth. A tip for the taking from Diseanna: “Take in every moment, the day flies by. Planning may get a little crazy at time, but remember the bigger picture — it’s all about the love you have for each other.”
