Saltwater Farm Vineyard Wedding with KLW Design Co.

Katya and Neal’s epic wedding at Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington CT yesterday was heaven-sent. There were cherubic adorable little flower girls and ring bearers floating around angelically all day, and an abundance of romantic and ethereal details that set the tone for their wedding day! I have known Katya forever- since she was in grade school, and I coached her and my cousin Stephanie in soccer when they were little, and I have loved watching her grow into the amazing young woman that she is today. We got to bond recently when Stephanie married Greg in Mexico and it was there that I got to meet Neal. He is such a great guy- with an amazing head of wavy hair- that I never knew existed- because literally every time I saw him he had a hat on! Color me surprised when I saw that wavy amazing hair on his wedding day! Their blush and champagne colors with stunning displays of white flowers and ferns, crafted by the dynamic duo that is KLW Design Co put me over the edge and sent me into orbit! Those of you that know me well, know how much my heart sings for ferns and yesterday I was in an opera of epic proportions. Katya, you were beyond beautiful. The epitome of the glowing bride all day. Once you and Neal got to see one another I felt both of your nerves settle and the rest of the day was smooth sailing! As the day faded into twilight and the candle light warmed the room, I sat back and just watched how happy everyone was as Katya and Neal’s families were joined as one.

Katya and Neal, thank you both so much for trusting me with your wedding, your vision for the day was beyond beautiful! XOXOXOX
