The weekend before our Colorado trip, Tim and I attended one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been to.  Seriously, everything was so pretty!

Steph & Brett’s Beautiful Winery Wedding

We arrived to the Mystic Marriott Hotel & Spa in Groton, CT around 3:00pm.  I was happy to arrive early so we could relax a little and not have to rush to get ready.  We were greeted with a fun little gift bag when we checked in:

With fun goodies in it!

Amongst the snacks and waters was a little card that wrote out the details for the night ahead.  Seriously, great idea, Steph.  I heart organization!

After Tim and I lounged around for a bit, we got ready.  Like my dress?

It’s Nine West, but I got it at Marshall’s for $19.99.  I love a good bargain almost as much as I love organization.  If not more!

We headed down to the shuttle bus which drove us to the reception venue about 40 minutes away.  Anyone ever been to the Jonathan Edwards Winery before?  I can’t even explain how pretty it is, so I’m not going to try.  You’ll see in the pictures below!

Before we were seated, we were given strawberry basil lemonades in mason jars!  I clearly was super excited about this, like a huge dork:

Steph, I just HAVE to ask if you found this idea on Pinterest?!  Also, I want the recipe.  🙂

Anyways, it was the perfect day for a wedding.  The sun was out, and it wasn’t too hot.  Check out some of the pictures I captured during the ceremony:

LOVED the bridesmaids dresses, great color and great length:

The ceremony was short and sweet!

Check out the studly best man (Tim’s roommate):

After the ceremony I obviously bee-lined for the food and scarfed brie cheese like it was my job!

And started drinking wine of course, while the wedding party took pictures.

Here’s me and my date!

Eventually we made our way over to the huge tent for the reception.

Table 12 all the way!

Some more pictures from the first dance…

…the speeches… (Brett, you KILLED yours!  Everyone was laughing so hard!)

…the food… (seriously best salmon ever!)

…the cake…

…and the fun!

We had such a great time!  Congrats again, Steph and Brett, and thanks for making us a part of your special day!

Anybody else have a ton of weddings to go to this summer?  Where did some of the prettiest weddings you’ve been to take place?  Who else would have been excited by strawberry basil lemonade?
