Wedding Date: July 11, 2015
Colors: Red and Gold
Jennifer was a beautiful vision in white as she stepped out of the limo with a vibrant bouquet of red roses before her gazebo ceremony. The bridesmaids were dressed in a hand-crafted red gown with gold accents and head pieces to match.
Grinning from ear to ear, all of her wedding day details were already perfect as Jennifer counted down the minutes until she could finally walk down the aisle to meet Mario, her soon to be husband, and the amazing father of their children!
Jennifer and Mario had the perfect summer day for their wedding! Adorned by lanterns and candlelight, their aisle was romantically elegant during their ceremony service.
Here are just a few of the many special moments and details captured from their big day!

At the Canoe Club Ballroom, we have over two acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, and a two-tier gazebo nestled riverside. We believe an outdoor ceremony and wedding is special in so many ways. Here are some benefits with having your wedding outdoors:
· Natures Beauty: This one right here takes the cake as our favorite and most important part of an outdoor wedding. What’s better then enjoying the outdoors? Enjoying the outdoors and natures beauty in New England, of course! We have dream landscapes and possibilities for all!
· Photo Opportunities: Beautiful foliage, a river, gazebo, sunshine and a beautiful bridge offers a scene that wedding goers will never forget. Looking back on this special day will remind you that you made the perfect choice.
· Ambiance: Outdoor weddings have amazing and beautiful ambiances. It is something that is unmatched anywhere, whether it be a couple birds chirping, the sun starting to set or creative and romantic lighting. There is no better way to end your magical and perfect day.
· Unique & Creative Ceremony: The magical atmosphere of an outdoor wedding is that whether it be fall, spring or summer, you can customize how everything looks. Outdoor weddings have a special place in our heart and we hope you get to experience one as well!

What better way to welcome your out-of-town (or even in-town guests!) to your special day, than by a little wedding welcome bag as they check into their hotel room! Wedding welcome bags have become a recent wedding trend that allows couples to include anything from bottles of water (with custom labels of course!), to snack foods, customized wedding timelines and other personalized items in their welcome bag while checking into their hotel room for your wedding. Welcome bags have become a great wedding touch as some even provide guests with additional wedding location area information such as recommended restaurants to visit, sight seeing opportunities or local attactions!
Here are a few of our favorite wedding welcome bag ideas!
1.) Snacks, snacks, snacks! - You can include anything from a little big of chips, assorted nuts, candies or a freshly made edible favor to a bottle of water! Many couples will get creative and have labels made for their bottles of water--to personalize their bags even more!
2.) Timeline of Events - This is one of our favorites! A cute timeline of events for your day will help your guests prepare themselves for the order of events of your big day! Make sure to include the times of special events (such as a shuttle pickup, ceremony time, cocktail hour etc), so that your guests don't miss a beat!
3.) Customized Door Hanger - This is another favorite! Customize a wedding door hanger for each welcome bag to include you & your fiance's names and wedding date--so that all of your hotel guests have something to place on their door after a night of celebrating with the newlyweds!
4.) Area Information - This is a great idea if you have alot of out - of -town guests traveling for your big day! A list of local restaurants, attractions and activities to do will help guests feel more comfortable and they'll enjoy their stay even more!

Wedding Date: June 27, 2015
Color: Turquoise with a little wine inspiration!
It was the perfect June day for Stephanie and Tim’s wedding day! As their close friends and family begin to arrive from the church ceremony, Stephanie and Tim’s entrance was like no other! They arrived in a raised red truck with a little wedding décor strung off the back! (Talk about a great entrance!) Everyone cheered and clapped their hands as they walked past the happy couple into the wedding venue for cocktail hour.
Once their formal wedding photos began in the gazebo and courtyard area, it became clear that this was a very family-oriented couple! (See the group photo above!) As immediate and extended family members gathered for photos, Stephanie and Tim graciously smiled and welcomed them all with open arms.
Tim is one of many siblings, and Stephanie has now officially become a part of a great big family to call her own!
Here are a few of the many special moments we captured from their big day!
