A Modern Travel-Themed Wedding at the New Seabury Country Club in Mashpee, Massachusetts
Carrie Mackoff (25 and an accountant) and Josh LaQuerre (26 and a pilot) met briefly during their freshman year of college, but it wasn't until a few years later that the two really got to know one another. Josh, a Maine-based pilot who commuted to Logan Airport everyday for work, moved in with their mutual friend, who was also Carrie's neighbor, to cut down on commuting time. They quickly became inseparable and two years later, Josh popped the question, taking Carrie to his hometown of Old Orchard Beach, Maine and getting down on one knee after a romantic walk along the beach.Having spent every summer on Cape Cod, Carrie knew it was there that she wanted to tie the knot. The couple chose the New Seabury Country Club in Mashpee, MA to the host the event, the elegant venue offering breathtaking views of Nantucket Sound and Martha's Vineyard. Carrie and Josh decked out the venue with a vibrant color palette of plum and burnt orange to celebrate the fall season and contemporary touches like floating candle and orchid centerpieces arranged on top of mirror plaques. As a nod to Josh's work as a pilot, the couple incorporated a travel theme into the day with details like boarding pass save-the-dates, luggage tag escort cards, a globe guest book and airline-themed table names adding a fun, personal element to the decor.
