A Whimsical, Romantic Garden Wedding at The Mayflower Grace in Washington, Connecticut

Influenced by Impressionism and French country style, Daniela Gill (31 and an interactive and digital designer) and Joseph Lapke (28 and an industrial designer) pulled off a romantic spring wedding with a hint of garden-inspired elegance.

After a bilingual ceremony in English and Spanish (Daniela’s family is from Venezuela) in the Shakespeare Garden, the couple and their guests made their way to the reception tent for dinner and dancing. The colorful space came alive with blush stemware, bundles of cherry blossoms and a floral installation suspended from the structure’s glass ceiling.

“I was looking for a romantic, comfortable, yet very elegant silhouette with artistic details that would add a beautiful, luxurious vibe to my look,” Daniela says of her hunt for the ideal gown. She found it in an ethereal lace trumpet style embellished with glass beads and crystals.

The reception festivities kicked off with signature cocktails and live jazz music by the pool.
