Conneticut Country Chic: Ashleigh + Joe

The Story: Ashleigh and Joe spotted each other from across the cornhole boards during happy hour at a rooftop bar. Joe proposed to Ashleigh at their first date location four years later. This “no fuss” couple wanted to have a wedding that reflected their laid back style by keeping things simple. No big vision or colour palette. The overall vision was “simply elegant, elegantly simple” and all that mattered was their families being together on their big day.

The Location: Candlelight Farms Inn. Joe and Ashleigh splurged on their venue because they wanted a place where both their families could gather for an entire weekend. This Conneticut farm is an ideal wedding venue for horse lovers who want a country wedding.

The Vibe: Accessible country chic. This wedding is all about getting out into the fresh air with the ones you love. With endless hills, Connecticut charm and rustic farmstay feels, this wedding is all about keeping it real.

The Details: The details of this wedding were simple. Blue suits for the guys. Champagne dresses for the girls. Our bride, Ashleigh, wanted a simple and timeless dress.  There were no place settings, glassware or party favours.

Tips & Highlights:

  • If you know an officiant, this can make your ceremony extra personal and special. Joe and Asleigh’s ceremony was officiated by a close family friend which added a personal touch. 
  • The speeches were some of the most heartwarming moments of this wedding. This included the joint maid-of-honor speech by two of Ashleigh’s sisters, Lexi and Sandra.
  • Remember to be yourself in your wedding photos. Don’t be afraid to show your personality as these photos often tell the best stories.
