Whimsical Garden Wedding in Southern Massachusetts
Sam and Enrique’s late summer wedding at their family’s home in southern Massachusetts was a splendid example of New England charm and easy elegance. A picture perfect setting at Samantha’s family home in South Dartmouth; full of abundant and expansive gardens and long grasses on a sprawling property. We began the day as the finishing touches and final preparations were underway. Inside the house, the bride was excitedly getting ready for the First Look and Ketubah signing. With a lovely lace detailed dress and a bouquet brimming with flowers, Samantha greeted her sharply dressed groom as they shared a private moment of joy. After the First Look, the couple took some time to stroll the property and take the significance of the day in.
Thoughtful details greeted guests – family photos attached to a tree in the yard – making for a unique ‘family tree’, handmade wooden signs, a lavish aisle ready for dried flower petal confetti and, of course, the family Buick on display courtesy of Sam’s grandfather. The chuppah, a lovely pergola swathed with lightweight fabric and lush greenery, made for a grand backdrop for Sam and Enrique to take lifelong vows. The rabbi sang beautifully as the bride and groom completed their traditional Jewish oaths. One of the bride’s favorite moments was being wrapped in the talit while she and Enrique looked at each other.
Under the tent, the romance and garden whimsy continued with soft accent lighting and centerpieces full of natural, unfussy florals – each table adorned by dahlias grown by Sam’s father. The dancefloor was consumed with a rousing horah and guest rejoicing alongside the newlyweds; the absolute joy on their faces says it all. In the end, the evening was full of tender moments, big smiles and lots of homegrown fun. Heirloom Pictures is thrilled to present to you Samantha and Enrique’s highlights – mazel tov!
