College of the Holy Cross Wedding - Tina & Myles

Lynne Reznick

The College of the Holy Cross wedding Worcester MA Tina and Myles

You know I love me some college sweethearts! And Tina and Myles are just that - two college sweethearts-turned-soulmates! Not only did they both go to Holy Cross, they met because they both played on the lacrosse teams at Holy Cross! So basically, they’re pretty awesome athletes, as well as awesome people. They started their relationship as friends who supported each other on and off the lacrosse field and spent most of their time in college as friends. They started dating in their senior year and have been together ever since. Needless to say, Holy Cross alum were there en masse to celebrate these two tying the knot!

When Myles decided to pop the question, he did it in style. Last December, he and Tina flew down to stay in Myles’ family home in GA to celebrate the NYE together. Unbeknown to Tina, Myles had Tina’s parents and older sister fly down to GA in anticipation of him popping the question. One morning when they were arriving for a brunch with Myles’ family, he got down on knee and proposed. Afterwards, they went inside to share the news with the family and Tina found her parents and sister waiting there to share in the good news too! Tina said she normally hates surprises, but that this one was a pretty great exception! And they jumped into some initial planning right then and there. Of course, both being alums, getting married at Holy Cross where their love story began made perfect sense! and they quickly sought the talents of Renee at Urban Soiree Boston to help bring their vision to life!

Getting Ready

The ladies went to Capelli Avanti for their hair and makeup and then I met them at the hotel for final getting ready. Tina got each of her ladies the cutest denim shirts with sparkly monograms on the pockets. They were a cozy twist on the pretty robes you often see and I love that they’re versatile enough to wear out of the house! And her ladies surprised her with a gorgeous print of the Holy Cross chapel where she and Myles were about to tie the knot. Myles got each of his guys bowties made with feathers from Brackish. They added the perfect pop of color and a fancy feel to the tuxes. Tina’s bridesmaids wore dresses from BHLDN in a rich cranberry color perfect for fall and she wore an absolutely stunning gown by Pronovias. While the ladies got ready and we waited to get Tina into her dress, I was able to capture some details of her beautiful invitation suite designed by Roseville Designs. I love how she incorporated soft floral accents and the rich cranberry color that Tina and Myles chose for their fall wedding!

First Look & Portraits at The College of the Holy Cross

Tina and Myles opted for a first look so they could see each other for a lot more time on their day and spend their wedding reception with their guests. So we did their first look in one of quads on campus, took their bridal party portraits outside their freshmen dorm, and their family portraits outside the chapel. Every spot was one they were intimately familiar with and had wonderful memories associated with it. It doesn’t get more meaningful and special than that! And the gorgeous florals by The Flowering Vine were the cherry on top!

Holy Cross Chapel Wedding Ceremony

The wedding ceremony took place in the chapel. The chapel is absolutely gorgeous and Tina and Myles were grinning from ear-to-ear throughout the entire thing. They said their vows as their loved ones looked on and their was so much joy and moments of laughter throughout the ceremony as Tina and Myles encouraged louder cheers after their first kiss! lol! So adorable! Their love of life and the fun they have together was felt throughout the entire day!

Holy Cross Hogan Campus Center Reception

Then everyone headed to the Hogan Center for their reception. They had a surprise for everyone with a choreographed first dance that included an epic dip at the end. They nailed it! And then everyone laughed cried as toasts were made to the bride and groom. The one thing that everyone said in one way or another was that these two are kind and generous souls. They’ve made a positive impact on all of their loved ones and they value family and friends above all else. After dinner, the Hip Pocket Orchestra kept the dance floor packed in between bites of delicious cake by Cookie Creatives. After their wedding, they headed to Africa for a few weeks on an amazing honeymoon! It was such a pleasure getting to know them and their families throughout the planning process. Congratulations Tina & Myles!! XO













Classic Fall Stamford Yacht Club Wedding - Kristie & Andrew

Lynne Reznick

Classic Fall Stanford Yacht Club Wedding on the Water

Before the wedding bells and before their first dance to "The Real Thing" by Zac Brown Band at their Stamford Yacht Club wedding, Kristie and Andrew met in college at a physical therapy clinic they were both working at. They were friendly but didn't end up getting together until four years later when they reconnected. Kristie was working with Andrews sisters at the time and Andrew asked Kristie out on a date. They've been together ever since! The best way for me to describe these two is thoughtful and kind. They went out of their way to make family and friends feel special and loved on their wedding day and it was obvious that kindness and generosity guide them in their everyday lives as well.  

Getting Ready: Honoring Family

Kristie and Andrew bought a home together in the year prior to getting married - talk about a big year! A home and a wedding! And Kristie got ready in their new shared home. Such a special thing to be able to prepare to marry your soulmate in the home you share together. She had an amazing team for hair and makeup with hair by Kim West and makeup by Sue Berkoff. And she found her stunning gown by Kelly Faetanini at A Little Something White in Darien, CT. She had it altered to add the lace sleeves in honor of her mom, who wore lace sleeves on her wedding dress years before. It was a beautiful way to remember her mom. She also wore an heirloom hair comb and they got their wedding bands from Betteridge Jewelers. Andrew and his Dad wore custom navy suits from Suitsupply that had special messages stitched under the collars. Andrew also gifted socks from Sock Club to each of his groomsman and they were a fun pop of design and color. Andrew got ready with his groomsmen and his Dad and Kristie had her sisters and sisters-in-law, as well as her best friend, by her side as she got ready.

Ceremony at Our Lady of Star The Sea Church

They held the ceremony at Andrew's family church: Our Lady Star of the Sea. It was particularly special because the priest that married Andrew and Kristie had known Andrew since he was a kid and was able to speak personally about the journey Andrew has taken so far, and now how the two of them are embarking on a journey through life and of faith together. 

Portraits: Water Views and Sunset Skies

After the ceremony we dashed off for portraits at the family home right on the beach. The sunset was AMAZING and the calm waters and cotton candy skies made for a chilly! but beautiful backdrop for photos. The rich cranberry and navy tones popped against the sunset skies and the florals from Brewster Flower Garden were stunning. We then zipped over to the Stamford Yacht Club to catch the rest of the light as the sun was setting. It was a chilly 34 degrees by the time we finished portraits but Kristie and Andrew were troopers and snuggled a lot to keep each other warm :) And the photos come out amazing! I'll brave the cold with a totally in love couple any day of the week!

Reception: Wine Bottles, Hats, and Donuts (and dancing, of course!)

Andrew and Kristie were so thoughtful about the special touches they incorporated into their wedding. they love their community and wanted to keep vendors as local as possible. So they had local whiskey in their signature drinks and artisanal donuts from their favorite local bakery for dessert, along with their cake. And yes, I was BEYOND excited about the donuts. And Kristie knew I had a love for them - so she made sure I tried one. And they were AH-MAZING! They also both enjoy wine so they asked their guests to write well wishes and love notes on wine bottles, each labeled with a milestone anniversary. Now, as they celebrate their first anniversary, and their fifth, and their tenth, and their twenty-fifth anniversary, they'll share the bottle of wine designated for that anniversary and read the messages left by loved ones on their wedding day. I can't tell you how much I love this idea! I think I'm going to steal it when Scott and I renew our vows in a few years.

Andrew's Dad has a thing for hats. He told everyone that he has a thing for hats during his toast to the couple, and he proceeded to whip out a baseball cap with their custom wedding monogram logo (created by Andrew's mom!) on it. Now, this was adorable, but as it turns out, Andrew's dad wanted everyone to share in his love of hats and his love and Andrew and Kristie - so e had enough made for all of the wedding guests and they were put out for people to grab and wear throughout the evening! And the hats made their way onto the dance floor as people danced the night away to music from Dance To The Music Entertainment.
