Waveny house is on a beautiful park nestled in the woods of Connecticut. Visiting on a typical weekend will find you runners, tons of dogs, frisbee, you name it.
The house itself, or mansion rather, is not gaudy by any means. Classic atmosphere that makes you feel as if you booked a bougie castle. There’s a large patio out back for your ceremony and cocktail hour which is exactly what Jen and Aaron did. As the sun went down, uplighting painted the Loggia in Red to set the tone for the night. There were 80 guests which was just about perfect for the size of the venue, any more than that and it would begin to feel cramped.
Shortly after the Cocktail hour concluded, guests moved inside and we introduced the Jen and Aaron. With everyone’s attention, we had their first dance which flowed right into combined parent dances. Combined parent dances are an option for folks who don’t necessarily want the spotlight but still want a special moment.
Toasts were given towards the end of dinner – Typically the wedding party is served first, this way they can give toasts as the rest of the reception is quietly finishing their meal. All that remained was a donut cutting (that’s right) and of course dancing in the grand hall.
