Ahh, a fresh take on nautical wedding dÃ©cor! We’re in heaven! Cara and Nicholas met in Hawaii (helloâ€”how romantic!), but they wanted something truer to their New England roots for the biggest day of their lives. That meant heading to Cara’s home state of Connecticut for a traditional ceremony at St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Brookfield, followed by one of our favorite receptions ever at The Candlewood Lake Club. Everything is just so crisp and pretty, from the lush bouquets to the hydrangea and orchid arrangements from The Garden Party. We adore the sweet mint green bridesmaids dresses from Jenny Yoo Collection. Cara wore a simple but stunning Badgley Mischka gown with an awesome pair of strappy Ralph Lauren heels, andÂ Elisabeth Millay Photography made Cara and Nicholas feel like “we were in a magazine shoot!” A basket weave design on the cake from Lindsay Wallin Cakes complemented the entire theme, and we love that guests sailed “wish boats” across the lake!
