Real Wedding | Jenn + Aaron

Attention all brides planning December nuptials – Jenn and Aaron’s winter wedding is here for you!

This wedding is classy, and full of festive charm.  I love the Christmas tree and fireplace at the alter, and how every room at the Lyman Estate just envelopes you in warm lighting and incredible historic Boston architecture.  Don’t miss the detail on Jenn’s Melissa Sweet silk taffeta gown: Jenn explains, “To accentuate the decor of the Victorian wedding venue, the flower on the left side of the dress was replaced with a crystal brooch.”  Perfect!

Jenn + Aaron | December 4th 2010 | The Lyman Estate, Waltham, MA

The Ceremony
Aaron and I met and courted in Boston, so even though neither one of us are from the city, we wanted to be married there. We were married at the Lyman Estate, built in 1793 and home to one of the oldest surviving greenhouses in the US. The greenhouses still shelter grapevines planted in 1870 and 100-year-old camellia trees. When we found this place, we fell in love with it and its quintessential Boston architecture, full of history and beauty.


The Reception
Our first date was going out dancing, so we wanted the reception to be full of it. The dance floor was packed with all our friends and family, we had to tear down more tables to create a larger dance floor. Our food from Cuisine Chez Vous was tremendous, even for my family full of foodies. The night was a blast. One of the best nights of our lives.


How Jenn Felt in Her Wedding Dress

Beautiful. Simply beautiful.


Why Jenn Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I did not want such beauty to sit in my closet when someone else could get a deal for their gorgeous wedding day.
