Jenn & Greg’s Elegant Country Wedding

What better way to start off the new year than reminisce about the last one especially when it has to do with weddings!


There’s nothing like ending the wedding season with an elegant country wedding on another perfect New England fall day! I swear I have the luckiest couples that seem to order up the perfect weather on their wedding day…Jenn & Greg were no different!


THE BACKSTORY

I had the pleasure of meeting Jenn & Greg almost a year before their wedding. She originally contacted me to just set up her reception since Jenn is a very Type A personality and felt she couldn’t do it herself. She felt she couldn’t get it done exactly the way she wanted & enjoy the pre-ceremony fun at the same time.


After getting to know Jenn via email & literally hitting it off before we even spoke a word to each other, we decided to schedule our initial meeting. We met on a winter night last January and that’s when the similarities between us really came out, to where Greg said, “if I wasn’t sitting here witnessing this, I wouldn’t have believed it.”


Needless to say, our meeting went fabulous and I was very excited about their wedding. I did explain to them that if they decided to upgrade to our Day Of Coordination service, I would need to know beforehand since I was leaving for a bridal conference the next day. I didn’t want my flight arrangements to conflict with their wedding!


A few days later, I got an email from Jenn telling me that Greg couldn’t stop talking about me on the way home from our meeting, how crazy similar we are and how much help I could be for her. In other words, he was trying to convince her that they needed to find it in their budget to have me as their Day Of Coordinator {she already knew she wanted me there!}. As they say, the rest is history….


THE DETAILS

Jenn & Greg were married on a sunny, chilly November day in a Catholic ceremony at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Claremont, NH.


I finally had the pleasure of working with Steve Holmes Photography and he sure didn’t disappoint with his stunning photos! Thank you Steve for providing all the gorgeous eye candy!



Their reception was held at one of my {many} favorite venues, Stonewall Farm in Keene, NH. I would be lying if I didn’t say that I wasn’t worried about the 1-hour ride that was between the two locations during the planning process.


Thanks to my amazing team, I was able to literally be in two places at once! While I was with Jenn & Greg at the ceremony, my team took care of the last minute details at the reception location. It always helps when we are fortunate enough to be able to set up some of the reception room the day before too!

The wedding theme was based on the Damask pattern and their colors were black & white. Jenn wanted an elegant country wedding and Stonewall Farm was the perfect choice for that.







My most enjoyable of many moment was to see Greg’s face when I told him he had “his” fire in the fireplace. He was under the impression he couldn’t have one which of course is what Jenn & I led him to believe. It was absolutely PRICELESS! He really did look like a kid getting the cool, new toy on Christmas morning. {Image taken by Inked Events}




Stonewall is such a beautiful place for a wedding for so many reason, but this is one of them! It has this gorgeous stairway that is perfect for a photo op!






WEDDING WITHDRAWALS

No matter how long or short we begin working together, I really do get so involved with my couples that when the wedding is over, I have withdrawals. Thankfully my couples are my friends even afterwards, so it’s not the “end” for us.


To see the love Jenn & Greg share was wondrous to witness and beyond words.


Here are some of the kind words Jenn wrote about working with me:

“Tracy was absolutely amazing!!! I had the pleasure of working with Tracy for eleven months while planning my wedding and she was right there every step of the way, guiding me through every last detail. A million thank you’s will never amount to the thanks she truly deserves. I can go on and on about how grateful I am for choosing Inked Events. Bottom line, I can promise you…no one can do what this woman can do!!!”
