Dennis and Kirsten’s wedding at the Webb Barn is one for the books! Gorgeous spring colors, the perfect rustic barn, and incredible weather all day. Their venue was the Webb Barn, which is part of the Webb Deane-Stevens Museum. The museum and historical houses create such a classic New England feel, which Dennis and Kirsten added their own unique touches to.
Kirsten’s wedding dress from Pronovias was a total dream dress! It had delicate crystal beading, a beautiful ruffled skirt, and my favorite – a deep v back!
Kirsten’s flowers were so beautiful, I was totally blown away. I was even more impressed to find out that her sister had put together all of the flowers for them, including the bouquets! It was so perfect for a sunny spring day, with light pink and little pops of minty green. Their photo booth backdrop was the perfect place to take photos of this stunning bouquet!
Dennis and Kirsten both got ready at the Webb Barn, just a room away from one another. You could feel the excitement in the air as Kirsten’s Maid of Honor and bridesmaids helped her into her dress before their first look!
Dennis and Kirsten had a first look before their ceremony, which is one of our favorite things to do. It’s such an intimate moment a bride and groom can share together. It gives them a chance to close their eyes, hold hands, breathe deeply and think about the day to come. Weddings are so fun, and the day can pass by so quickly, having a moment together to feel the excitement is so special.
And of course, if you do a first look that means you can do portraits with the bridal party before the ceremony. We loved how excited their entire bridal party was!
The soft mint color of the bridesmaids and Maid of Honor’s dresses looked so gorgeous with the bouquets Kirsten’s sister Chelsey made – they were the perfect accent for their Union Station dresses!
(We just had to include this photo of Dennis holding Kirsten’s bouquet while she got ready for group photos!)
Dennis and Kirsten’s ceremony was held under a beautiful tree on the Webb Deane-Stevens Museum’s grounds. White chairs were set up for friends and family, and the spreading branches of the trees and garden were a lovely backdrop for a heartfelt ceremony. One of my favorite parts of their ceremony was that Dennis still got emotional seeing Kirsten coming down the aisle, even though they had seen one another earlier for their first look.
The gorgeous garden at the Webb Barn with climbing vines and blooming flowers was the perfect setting for bride and groom portraits! I was totally obsessed with this white arch, the vines and delicate pink flowers were such a pretty accent. We spent some time strolling through the garden with Dennis and Kirsten, capturing their excitement at being married.
Their reception was held inside of the barn on the museum grounds, and spread out onto the slate patio just outside of the barn. The string lights, hanging paper flowers, and little accents Dennis and Kirsten added to the Webb Barn made it such a personal and beautiful reception!
Dennis, Kirsten, and their friends and family ended the night with yard games on the lawn of the Webb Barn and a lot of energetic dancing!
One of my favorite accents at their reception were the table numbers! Each was named after a specific animal, and I think our table may have been my favorite. Our table was named after the “Pangolin”, which Dennis said was one of his favorites, and I actually had to look up on my phone during dinner (for anyone who’s interested, a Pangolin basically looks like a really bad ass armadillo, and I know way too much about them now after reading up on them during dinner.)
Dennis and Kirsten’s dessert table was so cute – I loved the little “Mr. & Mrs.” banner! Their cake was made by Sweet Harmony Cafe & Bakery in Middletown, CT.
Congratulations, Dennis and Kirsten!
