If I ever wanted to leave the world of weddings for a new career it would be to join Trisha + Mike on their chartered yacht! I thought I had the dream job until I met these two! Mike is a Captain and Trisha a Steward on some of the most amazing yachts around! They get to travel all around the world and look at crystal clear waters all. day, errrrday.
Being out on the open seas the majority of the year, it was understandable when they contacted me to help plan and design their wedding for 200 people. In the two years that we worked together, I saw Trisha in person only four times! All the planning, meeting and major decisions were done via email, phone and Skype along with the help of her awesome mom Ethel!
To match their laid back island lifestyles of course we had to have their wedding on the beach! But Mother Nature wasn't on our side that day. Five minutes before Trish was about to walk down the isle, it started to rain and I mean RAIN! I looked over at her with the weather app open on my phone and asked her if she wanted to have the ceremony inside, and with the widest smile and happiest eyes, she lifted up her gorgeous Modern Trousseau gown from The White Dress by the Shore and said, "No! Let's go for it!".
From the private beach ceremony to the reception under a signature Sperry Tent on a BEAUTIFUL ocean-side estate in Fenwick, Connecticut, to dancing the night away to the sweet sounds of Eturnity Star, and enjoying delicious eats late-night courtesy of gourmet food truck Agave Canteen, this wedding was a blast from beginning to end!
Check out these phenomenal images from LandinoPhoto, our AMAZING couple and their super fun island inspired, Connecticut Shoreline wedding!
