Alicia and Mo – Vendors and Details


After a beautiful two day, two ceremony event, I have to take a moment to thank EVERYONE!  Right down to the littlest details!

First off, the BIGGEST thanks goes out to the Wadsworth Mansion for the ceremony location, reception spot, and a stunning backdrop for our formals!

The Hindu ceremony was performed at Havali India Restaurant in Middletown

I loved all of the little details from the key escort cards

© Diane Parsons Photography_0092to my personal favorite, the soccer scarves (personalized with their new monogram!)

© Diane Parsons Photography_0093Love these fan programs!

© Diane Parsons Photography_0101And what was under her dress?  Alicia’s new monogram!  (You were expecting something else, weren’t you?)

The saris from the Hindu ceremony were brought back from India by Mo’s family

And a gorgeous “something borrowed” of Alicia’s comb and her hair was coiffed by the ever talented crew at Naomi’s Hair Salon in West Hartford

And makeup as well, by Naomi’s staff

© Diane Parsons Photography_0118One of my favorite moments of the day was Alicia & Mo’s first photo together as husband and wife!  Their first date was at a bar, over martinis – so that seemed the perfect choice to take their first photo: at the bar, over martinis!  (Sort of bummed that the bartenders didn’t have any martini glasses…but what can we do, right?)

© Diane Parsons Photography_0089One of the coolest ideas EVER – framed childhood photos of the bride and groom instead of pew flowers or bows!  It was appreciated by the family and fun for everyone else to look at how they’ve grown!

© Diane Parsons Photography_0106AMAZING food, waitering service, and THE BEST organization by Jenn and the crew at Gourmet Galley – thank you!

© Diane Parsons Photography_0109There were two officiants for the two different ceremonies.  The Hindu ceremony was officiated by Mo’s uncle from India

© Diane Parsons Photography_0098And the Justice of the Peace for the second ceremony was William Dougherty

© Diane Parsons Photography_0114And everyone was on the dance floor, having a great time with the sounds of  The Blue Cherry band

© Diane Parsons Photography_0117 © Diane Parsons Photography_0112 © Diane Parsons Photography_0110Flowers were from Stop & Shop (I’m always pleasantly surprised with how pretty S&S flowers arrive!)

© Diane Parsons Photography_0111One of my favorite moments was an Irish hand tying ceremony during the wedding ceremony.  The two cultures became one when silk from saris and Irish lace were brought to Alicia and Mo by family and friends, and then tied together by the JP.
