Wee Burn Country Club Wedding by the Sea, Darien, CT

Lizzie and Alastair are so lovely, it was such a pleasure spending their wedding day with them! He’s British and she’s from Connecticut. They met and fell in love while working in Singapore, can you believe that! So romantic. We met via Skype from Singapore and hit it off right away! I was thrilled to be working with them and with their extraordinary team of vendors at this Wee Burn Country Club Wedding by the Sea.

Formal Elegance

Though the rain threatened to dampened their spirits, it didn’t stop Lizzie, Alastair, their families and guests from having the time of their lives! The couple decided to get married in the bride’s hometown in Connecticut. The day held the charm and elegance of an English countryside, a definite nod to the groom’s heritage. The groomsmen looked absolutely dapper in formal tails with just a touch of plaid adding a Scottish tradition. The adorable flower girls and ring bearers made the group portrait session before the wedding especially sweet, although one of the little ring bearers was not too happy about it, (so cute). In my opinion, the more kids, the better! The wedding ceremony at St. Luke’s Parish was perfect. There’s something so magical about an elegant church.

Reception Details We Loved

The Wee Burn Country Club was the perfect backdrop for the elegant party that followed the ceremony at St. Luke’s. Most noteworthy, the dining room was decorated so beautifully, with the green glassware and ornate plates perfectly complimenting the lush greenery in the centerpieces. Similarly tasteful, above a checkerboard dance floor hung a canopy woven with vines, white flowers, and exposed cafe lights. The wedding cake from Sweet Lisa’s almost looked too good to eat! To avoid the threat of rain, we quickly made our way to the beach for portraits, which turned out dramatically gorgeous with a moody skies. Congratulations, Lizzie and Alastair, your wedding was amazing!
