Elizabeth and Paul’s love story was slow and steady, but their paths always close. In college, unbeknownst to them, Liz and Paul lived in nearby dorms for three to four years before they connected. One day, they were set up on a blind date through Paul’s older sister’s friend. But it wasn’t until a year and a half later that they found their true love for one another.
The pair almost pulled the trigger on a different location to tie the knot. Then they came across The White Barn at South Farms in a bridal magazine. The serene, pastoral landscape was exactly what these two NYC denizens dreamed of for their picturesque wedding day. So with Brigham & Co. behind the lens, their day was as perfect as could be!
Situated in Litchfield County, this venue is a revived, contemporary family-owned farm with deep, generational roots in Morris, Connecticut. Being avid lovers of travel and family heritage, Liz and Paul knew this property was the perfect place to gather their nearest and dearest from all over the world.
Liz got ready with her girls at Paul’s family church, in a plethora of Chanel details (the company she works for and loves). After the two had said “I do” at Sacred Heart Church in Southbury, Connecticut, they made a brief stop at the historic Topsmead State Forest for bridal portraits. Soon after that, Liz and Paul arrived at South Farms in romantic, modern florals by venue co-partner Sarah Worden.
Guests enjoyed cocktail hour with a signature drink created by one of Liz and Paul’s closest friends. And the beautiful night ended with a choreographed first dance and many new memories to last a lifetime.
Thanks for stopping by!
