A Rustic Garden Wedding at Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, Massachusetts
Jessica (31 and a social worker) and Brian (31 and an attorney) went out with friends in Downtown Boston, where they happened to run into one another. They immediately hit it off and scheduled their first date before parting ways. After three years together, Brian decided it was time to propose. He took her on a day trip to Concord, where they went shopping before settling down for a picnic on the Minute Man Trail. There, Brian popped the question--and he even brought a bottle of wine to celebrate! Jessica and Brian found Plimoth Plantation, an experiential 17th century museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts, to host both their ceremony and reception, which took place in the Hornblower Garden and Gainsborough Hall respectively. They loved the bright and beautiful blooms in the garden contrasted with the rustic, old fashioned atmosphere of the hall. The bouquets and floral arrangements incorporated vibrant fall blooms, including sunflowers, roses, calla lilies, and gerbera daisies, inspired by the garden's colorful flowers. The couple specifically chose the sunflowers because Brian is often known to get them for Jessica. With their classic New England wedding, Jessica and Brian made sure to tie in the history and tradition of the venue with some of their favorite local delicacies, including, of course, New England clam chowder. Jessica even picked out her champagne-colored lace wedding dress because she felt it suited the old fashioned atmosphere of the wedding venue. The wedding party, meanwhile, wore gray and navy to complement the bright, fall-colored flowers. Bridesmaids dressed in chic navy halter dresses with statement necklaces for a fashionable touch. Overall, the intimate ceremony was rich with rustic charm and and undeniable New England sensibility.
