We are so honored to announce Abby and Billy’s wedding was featured on the cover of Martha Stewart Weddings.
Working with Abby and Billy for their dream wedding was something out of a fairytale book. Abby being the actress and Billy being the screen play writer was a match made in heaven. The couple met while on set working on the film Sex Ed in New York City. After a year and a half of dating, Billy filled their shared New York apartment with candles and flowers and proposed to Abby and the rest is history!
The couple chose to have their dream wedding at Abby’s parents home in Old Lyme, Connecticut. The ceremony took place at the very church Abby had her first communion, followed by a tented reception at her coastal home.
True Event worked closely with Abby to bring her vivid dream for her day to life. The color palette of the day incorporated deep reds, scarlet and mix shades of blues. The bridal bouquet incorporated deep scarlet garden roses and blue thistles designed by Mar. Floral & Botanicals. The guest tables featured mis matched china and menu cards with gothic style calligraphy designed by Abby’s uncle. Gold mercury votives filled with red garden roses, mixed berries and a mix of deep colored blooms reflected the colors of the day.
Tie That Binds designed the invitation suite which featured a floral print that the couple incorporated throughout their entire day. From the guests escort card to the floral back for guests to snap fun shots throughout the day.
