Branford House Mansion Wedding: Jesse + Lindsey

This Branford House Mansion Wedding was a dream come true for bride Lindsey and groom Jesse! With a more untraditional vibe, they had no wedding party or formal sit down dinner. And so, this is one wedding I am particularly excited to share!

The Branford House Mansion at Avery Point is a beautiful venue with an elegant New England feel. This was perfect for Jesse and Lindsey’s vision. They wanted a traditional New England wedding feel with a mix of modern and vintage touches. Their goal was to bring their vision to life at this beautiful location, and they did just that!

The Ceremony

Their unplugged ceremony took place in the lawn over looking the panoramic views of the Long Island Sound, with castle like Branford House Mansion behind them. Bright, colorful florals framed the aisle and arch. Meredith from Sweet Promise Events was there to make sure everything ran smoothly!

After the ceremony, guests moved to the wrap around terrace for cocktail hour. Their family and friends enjoyed drinks, passed hors d’oeuvres, and a massive raw bar that was setup inside. The couple had tons of hightop cocktail tables all along the terrace and garden for their guests to mingle freely with one another. Indoors, more traditional round tables were set for larger groups to gather together.

The Reception

There was no formal sit down dinner, just the endless supply of decadent food options by The Aqua Turf. Guests were treated to beautiful florals by Florals by Justine, as well as music that got you dancing performed live by ETA Music.

The open air dance floor was a hit with guests who wanted to get their groove on but still enjoy some fresh air in between songs! Jesse and Lindsey had their first dance during golden hour which created some magical moments for me to capture!

I hope this gave you a glimpse into how amazing Jesse and Lindsey’s Branford House wedding was! They created a magical day full of love, family and friends. I can’t wait to see what their next adventure together holds.
