Lucy and Andrew hosted their gorgeous December wedding at The Farmhouse at the Grand Colonial! These lovebirds were blessed with the most impeccable fall weather for their “I do’s” in Hampton, New Jersey.
With its exposed beams, reclaimed barn wood and vintage fixtures, The Farmhouse at the Grand Colonial is the perfect venue for a modern wedding with a vintage feel
Like many modern couples, Lucy and Andrew met through Bumble! They quickly hit it off and have been inseparable since! On their first year anniversary, Andrew proposed to Lucy while on a trip to Cape Cod, MA. While looking for shells at Chapin Beach, Andrew got down on one knee and popped the question.
When asked what the couple was most excited about during planning, they said, “We’re excited to see all of our planning come together and look forward to being with our friends and family to celebrate!”
Lucy and Andrew incorporated their Scottish heritage through thistle florals, tartan, and bagpipers.
Lucy and her squad of fabulous bridesmaids kicked off the morning of her epic day with a whirlwind of fun! Gathered together in the bridal suite at The Farmhouse at the Grand Colonial, they giggled, chilled out, and enjoyed some well-deserved pampering. The laughter and love were in the air as they prepped for the big day!
The bridesmaids rocked gorgeous emerald green, velvet gowns, perfect for this transitional time of the year! These ladies knew how to rock their unique styles, showcasing their individuality and adding a touch of vibrant charm to the whole affair.
We are obsessed with Lucy’s wedding day look! Her stunning A-line gown looks like it was made just for her. The intricate details, delicate lacework, and captivating silhouette transformed her into a vision of pure elegance and grace.
Looking to make the groom stand out? Try out what Andrew did and wear a different color tux from your groomsmen. It adds a special touch to the day and makes the groom stand out among the rest of the wedding party!
The Farmhouse at Grand Colonial is a 330-year-old historical estate set among acres of lush gardens, making the options for backdrops for first looks and photos endless. Andrew was so excited to see Lucy, and once the moment finally came, she left him speechless!
After their first look, the couple had time to take portraits and pictures with their bridal party before the ceremony.
What’s a more romantic backdrop for a December wedding than a romantic, cozy fireplace? Our team worked with Lucy and Andrew to create a lush altar arrangement that helped complement the naturally gorgeous space for their ceremony.
To incorporate their Scottish heritage, Lucy and Adnrew had a bagpiper outside greeting guests as they arrived at the ceremony.
Andrew and Lucy were surrounded by so much love during their special day! It was so touching to see all their friends and family gathered in one place to celebrate their love.
Abigail and Brett poured their hearts into every aspect of their special day—we are obsessed with how everything came together to create the most romantic ambiance!
Collaborating closely with the couple, we created a combination of high and low centerpieces with a gorgeous neutral color palette for the ballroom tables. The result was a captivating display that effortlessly enhanced the natural romantic ambiance of the venue.
We love designing elements that can be reused throughout a couple’s wedding day—the arches used during the ceremony were used to create the most romantic backdrop for the sweetheart table. We then adorned the table with a lush garland with greenery and flowers, tying the entire look together.
Last, but certainly not least, let’s hear it for the wedding cake! We loved adding a touch of flowers to the cake to tie together the look of the day.
