today’s love story:
Chris + Stacia’s Outdoor Wedding in Newton
and all the magical moments that made it
Chris + Stacia have had an incredible 2021.
From settling into their beautiful new home to their absolutely incredible outdoor wedding in Newton, at the Brae Burn Country Club just outside of Boston.
Stacia has an eye for details, and everything came together so beautifully for their outdoor wedding in Newton. I love the mix of light and dark flowers. Everything happened onsite at Braeburn Country Club, which makes the day a total breeze for a bride. We particularly love it because the getting ready space has so much natural light! Actually, Braeburn has a ton of natural light throughout.
Stacia + Chris shared an elegant first look outside their outdoor wedding venue in Newton. His black tux complimented her princess ball gown perfectly, and I LOVE her off the shoulder sleeves. Stacia customized her gown at I Do Bridal, so it’s officially one of a kind!
Their wedding ceremony was on the terrace and festivities were kicked off by Stacia’s flower-gram, her grandmother, who tossed flower petals in place of a more traditional flower girl. I absolutely love this way to include Gram and make everyone smile to start the day.
Their wedding was officiated by Chris’ brother Dave, and the vows were so sweet, there wasn’t a dry eye in the place.
And then after the ceremony, portraits with their favorite people and celebration!
The flower arrangements by Petal + Crumb were gorgeous with roses, seasonal flowers and touches of fall leaves. And that neon sign!! Umm, also …can’t forget the beautiful cake by Wright’s Dairy Farm. I’m obsessed with the cake, it might be the most beautiful I’ve ever seen! The room was elegant and warm and so cohesive.
Stacia + Chris joined their friends + family for cocktails on the terrace before introductions + the first dances of the night – also held outside on Brae Burn’s terrace – what a gift, to have these moments outside in the sun on such a gorgeous September day!
They moved inside for toasts + dinner before heading back out for dancing with Ambient Entertainment LLC. All of these beautiful pictures are by our uber talented associate team, Shannon + Amanda – its so fun to see what they create. It’s like a gift I get to enjoy along with our couples! They did such a beautiful job, and I know they absolutely loved working with these two as much as I have.
Congratulations Stacia + Chris!
