A Jubilee Event: Brooks + Kevin’s Preppy Nautical Affair

Brooks and Kevin’s wedding was amazing– the preppy details, the delicious pub style food for dinner, the gorgeous color story and of course, their wonderful family and friends. I so enjoyed working with them both on this day and we could have never anticipated that Hurricane Sandy would send their wedding plans into a tailspin, leaving their original wedding reception location heavily damaged. In two weeks time we had to make a huge change and thankfully, the wonderful team at THE GUILFORD YACHT CLUB came to our rescue! Now, looking back, I couldn’t picture their wedding anywhere else.

Madison is an important town to Brooks and her family– she spent many summers as a kid visiting her grandparents’ beautiful home on the water. So, when it came time deciding on the location of her and Kevin’s wedding, they knew that this town with special meaning was the perfect place. The ceremony was held in the heart of town at The First Congregational Church. Brooks and Kevin drove off in their neighbors old Chevy pick up truck for a stellar party at The Guilford Yacht Club.

I loved Brooks’ attention to detail. She really owned some projects and made them her own– everything from the custom pillows she made for each guests, the hand lettered table assignments and signs through out the wedding (does she not have GORGEOUS penmanship?! I told her to start her own business!), and the pennant flags she sewed which we draped throughout our bar tent! Inside the main tent we had long, family style dining with custom made fabric runners (also by Brooks!) and the centerpieces were baskets filled with flowers, designed by BLUSH FLORAL DESIGN. It was one of the most beautiful and creative ideas and the baskets were reused from another event in her family!

Guests dinned on a menu truly inspired by pub food like Fish n’ Chips and NY Strip, with condiments designed into the table decor. We even had bowls of homemade mini pickles on the table for guests to enjoy!
