9/10/11 was the lucky day this year in Connecticut, with gorgeous late summer weather for Betsy and Charley’s relaxed, fun and stylish wedding at the Essex Yacht Club in Essex CT. Betsy in her Vera Wang dress and Charley in his blazer & yellow pants with Vineyard Vines bowtie looked beautiful and so comfortable with one another. After their ceremony at Our Lady of Sorrows church in Essex, the couple and bridal party jumped on their friends’ wooden powerboat for a Champagne-fueled ride from Middle Cove Marina to the Essex Yacht Club…that’s arriving in style! Onto the cocktail party on the EYC lawn complete with an ice sculpture of Betsy’s dad’s sailboat adorning the raw bar…with the actual boat docked alongside, fully decorated with colorful signal flags.
Then into the glowing Sperry Tent with great speeches and dances…especially Betsy and her dad’s dance which segued into a high energy version of the YMCA! More dancing ensued to the sounds of the Red Hot Rhythm Band before the afterparty around the corner at the Gris. A classic nautically-inspired wedding right in Betsy’s hometown…often called the best small town in America. Have to also mention the really nice flowers by Yumiko of Hana Floral Design and the beautiful cake came from Ana Parzych Custom Cakes.
Betsy and Charley, thanks so much for having us document your great day…congratulations..hope you had an awesome adventure in Thailand!!
