Elegant New England Beach Club Wedding – Tori & Justin

Tori and Justin met in college through a mutual friend. It might have been in a musty college basement but it was love at first sight! After being together for a whilte they got engaged while hiking in Glacier National Park. Tori’s family has a cabin out near the park and she has grown up vacationing there and hiking in the park. It’s one of her favourite places and so, Justin decided to pop the question when they were on one of these family vacations. They were hiking Tori’s favourite trail and were near a nice lookout the trail offered when Justin let the family hike ahead and dropped to one knee to ask Tori to marry him. She was totally surprised and could not have been happier.

Their wedding was in Darien CT. They wanted to combine both a beach wedding with their own style. They didn’t want it to be too cliche beach wedding. They used a lot of neutrals and gray tones, and as it was late September they used a lot of greenery.

These two proved to be so in love and so laid back about their wedding – really staying focused on how excited they were and how happy they were to be able to celebrate with friends and family. And with the help of Tori’s mom in the design, they hosted an absolutely beautiful wedding celebration full of special details and personal touches. From custom stationery with a monogram designed by Justin, to hanging floral installations and saying I do at Tori’s tiny family church, to having their siblings, including Tori’s twin sister, by their side throughout the day, these two hosted an elegant affair that tied classic New England together with upscale beachy inspiration.
