Chris + Kelly’s summertime wedding on the Cape was quintessential New England romance. A Massachusetts native, groom Chris had special memories and family ties to Cape Cod. The connection to the Cape was cemented when he proposed to Kelly there, and although they were based in the Midwest, they decided to do a destination wedding of sorts on the beautiful Cape Cod Bay.
Why Deering Events? Chris + Kelly are based in the Midwest: they wanted a Cape Cod wedding planner who could recommend local vendors and manage the planning process in their stead. No bride and groom wants to have to worry about hauling favors and day-of materials halfway across the country! Chris + Kelly trusted us from afar to take care of all the details, manage all the vendors, and give them peace of mind until they arrived in town the week of their wedding. Chris + Kelly chose our Full Service option, so we helped to find a venue, establish and stick to a budget, monthly check ins, created to-do lists, tracked RSVPs – basically everything you can think of! This was so helpful to an out-of-town couple like them.
The Vision: Bride Kelly wanted a soft, romantic feel and was partial to a purple and silver color palette. Designer’s Touch created lush bouquets and centerpieces full of roses and greenery. The bridesmaid dresses were a pale lavender, while the groomsmen opted for navy suits with purple neckties. The ceremony was on the rolling lawn of Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster, and luckily the weather was perfect! The bride and groom made sure to sneak down to the beach for a few snaps of them strolling along the bay.
The Vibe: Both Chris + Kelly wanted to focus on food, family, and fun for their wedding weekend. When most of your guests are coming from out of town, we always recommend more of a “wedding weekend” since everyone will be around for a few days. For this wedding, we did a beach bonfire on Friday night, Guests spent their weekend leisurely strolling along the beach and playing golf. We even planned an after party at the hotel’s terrace bar – Who says the fun has to end when the reception is over?
Local Flavor: You can’t have a wedding on the Cape and not serve seafood! Chris + Kelly chose a raw bar for their cocktail hour and beer from local Boston breweries – uniquely New England touches that were well-appreciated by their guests.
Our Favorite Moments: The aforementioned bonfire and after party were pretty unforgettable in terms of fun, but we also loved the personal touches imbued throughout the day. Kelly’s brother walked her down the aisle, and they chose a close family friend to be the officiant. We loved getting to witness the sweet, meaningful moments.
The Team: Ocean Edge Resort is such a great venue, offering a ton of different locations throughout the property for wedding events. If you want to have your rehearsal dinner, welcome bonfire, ceremony, reception, and after party in the same place, Ocean’s Edge is the perfect choice. Photographer Analog Weddings captured the timeless, romantic feel we had in mind for the day, getting perfect shots of every moment and detail.
