Elegant Wedding Luncheon, Brimming with Love
Caroline and Robert’s late fall wedding luncheon brimmed with love. The entire day was incredibly personal. Because they chose a day in early fall, the color pallet was pale pink and berry. The bride’s dress was custom designed by Lee Anderson. There was a touch of whimsy on the floral sleeves. It suited her personality perfectly! It was her first marriage and his second. The groom’s gown children were their bridal party, which lead to many tender moments. The couple’s elderly parents also played a sweet role in their day. Most notably, when Caroline’s father walked her down the aisle, it was one of the sweetest wedding moments I’ve ever seen. There was a feeling of togetherness that comes across wonderfully in the pictures.
The Very First National Society Of Colonial Dames Wedding
Especially relevant to what made the day unique was that it was the first time a wedding was held at the National Society of Colonial Dames. The Society was founded in the 1890s for those women who are descendants of people who were crucial to the founding of the United States during the Colonial period. Caroline is a member of the Society. She took advantage of the beautiful space in New York for her intimate wedding of family and friends. Each detail they selected, from the table decor and florals, to Caroline’s gloves and fur accessories, to the string quartet courtesy of Elan Artists, was elegant and glamorous. Finally, the guests enjoyed a delightful meal in the gorgeous dining room, overlooked approvingly by portraits of the famous Dames. Special thanks to Claudia Hanlin of the Wedding Library for another flawless event.
