A Vintage, Garden Wedding at Codman Estate in Lincoln, Massachusetts
Tiffany Bryant (29 and a home stager) and Brendan Arsenault (29 and a software developer) had a standout element to their wedding: gray lanterns. Tiffany is a professional home stager and for a corporate event decorated a space with gray lantern jars. She vowed to use them for her own wedding, and sure enough she did: the lanterns were the centerpiece of the couple's entire design for the wedding. "I loved them so much that I didn't allow anyone to take them after the wedding, so now I own 70 gray lanterns," Tiffany says. The lanterns were used to decorate the reception and ceremony space and filled with either candles or flowers. Vintage touches were also present in the decor, from a vintage table and chairs used as lounge furniture to Tiffany's vintage-inspired white trumpet gown. The couple exchanged vows outdoors, in an Italian garden next to a manmade pond, and a cello and flute duo added sophisticated music to the ceremony. "The frogs in the pond made their presence known the whole ceremony!" Tiffany says with a laugh. Three signature drinks kicked off the reception, as the guests enjoyed dinner and homemade cake underneath the Codman Estate's white string lights.
