Says Lindsey, “Ryan and I wanted to find a location that had the easiness of our relationship, but felt a little formal, since we’re more of a laidback couple. Being outside for the wedding has always been something that I wanted, and once I found Castle Hill Inn and saw their beautiful tent, with the water and beautiful greenery as the backdrop, we fell in love!
My dream job has always been a wedding planner, so this was really my opportunity to be creative and add all the personal touches that I had been storing in my mind for the duration of our relationship (8 years)! One of our passions is music, so we spent a lot of time choosing the right ceremony music. Our close family friends are in the band, Swear and Shake, and [sang at] our ceremony with the songs we chose. Another great surprise for the ceremony was that my mom co – officiated the wedding.
My father passed away 10 years ago, and he and my mom had the epitome of what I would want for my marriage. Their marriage continues to serve as a shining example of what a marriage should be. Given that my dad would not be there for the wedding, and it was important that he was somehow represented the day of, I thought the perfect person to usher Ryan and I into our married lives would be my mom. My mom is one of the wisest, most loving people we know. She is so well spoken that her words and blessings [were] exactly what Ryan and I need[ed] to begin our lives together. When planning the décor and feel of the wedding, I knew I wanted something airy, whimsical and laid back, so I decided to go with creams and blushes. Anthropologie is one of my favorite stores and I saw this tablescape with mismatching patterned napkins, but were in the same color family. I really wanted to emulate that so we decided to find our own fabric and make our own napkins for the reception. [We included] a mixture of wood square farm tables and round tables with overlays with beautiful garlands and votives lining all the tables.”
