Connecticut Wedding by Shoreshotz1 Photography

Every part of a wedding is based on one tradition or another and adding your own family traditions makes the event all the more special. Kathryn’s parents performed a Polish custom that had been passed down through generations. It’s very symbolic and quite sweet. The Westchester Wedding Planner, Connecticut WeddingFrom the Bride: We have been living in Switzerland for over a year now and have traveled quite a bit around Europe. We were very excited to share our travels with our guests by incorporating it into our decor. We used leather luggage tags for place cards. Instead of tables numbers we used the name of the cities we had visited. Other travel themed decor were some suitcases and globes. We decided against the traditional guest book so instead we had a postcard station that served as a guestbook. Guests would select a postcard, write their message and place it in a mailbox we had personalized. We planned to reuse the mailbox for our first home when we come back to the US! We also wanted to incorporated Switzerland into the wedding; the signature drink was “Aperol Spritz”, which is a very popular Swiss drink. It’s a bright orange drink that stimulates appetite.Of course, we had to have swiss chocolate bites as favors. My parents are Polish so gave a Polish blessing after the first dance during the reception. The costume is to give a silver coin, bread, salt and wine to the newlyweds. The bride and groom each taste a piece of bread to signify “May you never go hungry”. They each sip a little wine to signify “Enjoy the sweetness in life”. They each place a spec of salt on their tongue to signify “May you overcome the bitterness in life. The Silver Coin siginfies “ May you be wealthy with good health and never be in a financial stress”. The parents then kiss the couple as a sign of welcome, unity and love.The Westchester Wedding Planner_1886 The Westchester Wedding Planner_1887The Westchester Wedding Planner_1890 The Westchester Wedding Planner_1892 The Westchester Wedding Planner_1883The Westchester Wedding Planner_1893The Westchester Wedding Planner_1882The Westchester Wedding Planner_1894The Westchester Wedding Planner_1899The Westchester Wedding Planner_1903The Westchester Wedding Planner_1905The Westchester Wedding Planner_1909The Westchester Wedding Planner_1933The Westchester Wedding Planner_1934The Westchester Wedding Planner_1935The Westchester Wedding Planner_1915The Westchester Wedding Planner_1916The Westchester Wedding Planner_1917The Westchester Wedding Planner_1921The Westchester Wedding Planner_1919The Westchester Wedding Planner_1920The Westchester Wedding Planner_1922The Westchester Wedding Planner_1926The Westchester Wedding Planner_1927The Westchester Wedding Planner_1929Photographer:  Shoreshotz1 Photography | Dress: Casablanca Bridal | Dress Boutique: Mariella Creations | Bridesmaid Dresses: Davids Bridal | Makeup Artist: Janice Raccio for Salon Naomi | Shoes: Macys | Invitation Designer: Wedding Paper Divas | Location: Gillette Castle | DJ: A&B Entertainment | Cake Designer: Creative Cakes by Donna | Tuxedo and Mens Attire: Formals By Antonio | Floral Designer: Nancy Ellen’s Garden | Ceremony Location: Saints Cyril and Methodius Church | Reception Venue: The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station
