Abigail and Tom planned their wedding with me all the way from London where Abigail works as a writer.
Abigail, a natural artist, not only watercolor painted the save the dates and invitation suite, but also created all of the bouquets and flower crowns herself from fresh flowers picked in the fields surrounding Overbrook House.
The bridal party started the morning with a swim in the beautiful pool on this gorgeous Cape Cod property. Overbook House is a private home located on Cape Cod that you can rent for the week. The surrounding hills and fields provide organic spots for beautiful ceremonies, and the dance hall on the far end of the property is the perfect space for dancing into the wee hours.
Abigail's Father, an ordained Deacon, married Abigail and Tom on the crest of the hill in front of the house. We used antique furniture from the house to house the escort cards and programs, and guests tossed biodegradable eco-fetti as the couple recessed down the aisle.
The groom, an accomplished baker, made the traditional wedding fruitcake himself, and family members brought desserts made from beloved family recipes for the largest dessert spread we've ever seen. Abigail, originally from New England, and Tom, a proper British gent, created a friendly competition, pitting American desserts against British desserts on opposing tables, and a local bake shop created the piece de resistance, a tiered naked cake made by The Artisan Bake Shoppe.
Smoke and Pickles, a New England catering company specializing in only locally-sourced ingredients, smoked bluefish and a whole pig for the picnic-style dinner. Guests playfully enjoyed a DIY Photo Booth using a Fuji Instax and masks of the Royal Family, and Tom crafted one-of-a-kind cocktails for guests.
Following dinner, the bride and groom invited the guests to join them in a parade as they marched along to the dance hall where Abigail and Tom showed off their choreographed dance routine under British bunting flags that they had used to decorate the hall. As guests danced until midnight, lit torches lined the pathways back to the house.
