A Great Gatsby-Inspired Wedding with a Modern Twist at Tupper Manor in Beverly, Massachusetts
Family means everything to Sharon Dratch (44, works in public relations) and Christopher Edwards (48, a software engineer). Chris's two adorable children from a previous marriage, 10-year-old Angie and nine-year-old Tyler, have always been an important part of the couple's relationship. They even helped him propose! "To this day, I’m still impressed by how they were able keep the proposal a total secret for days!" says Sharon. Inspired by the old-world vibe of Tupper Manor and Sharon's lace dress, the couple decided on a romantic, Great-Gatsby theme for their mansion wedding. For a fresh twist, Sharon and Chris outfitted their day in a contemporary color scheme of teal, silver and fuchsia. "The idea was to incorporate new, modern colors with the feel of the Gatsby era—a fusion of both modern and traditional styles," explains Sharon. From the Lucite huppah to the bright green signature cocktails, every bit of Sharon and Chris's family affair accomplished just that.
