Emily + Tolga | Vera Wang Wedding from Justin and Mary Photography

Classic, regal and elegant.  What a perfect way for Emily to feel in her Vera Wang gown, Harper…and such an apt description for the whole look and feel of  this intimate, evening black-tie affair.  I love the use of all the candles in this space, the rich wood detailing…and the grand and inviting fireplace draped in bows of green – a definite old castle vibe mixed with immaculate timeless elegance.  Enjoy!

Emily + Tolga | February 16, 2013 | Branford House, CT | Dress Listing: Vera Wang, Harper

The Ceremony
The ceremony was held in front of a huge fireplace and lit by intimate, romantic candles. An interpretation of the traditional Jewish seven blessings was incorporated into the evening ceremony. Seven married couples read modernized blessings. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house!

The Reception
The dinner was held at a long table set with candelabras and floral arrangements.

Emily’s Dress Search
The Vera Wang, Harper was the first dress I tried on, and then I probably tried on about 60 more, and none could live up to the structured and romantic art deco Harper!
