Imagine a summer on the Cape in the 1930’s – full of clambakes, tennis matches, and fabulous vintage swimsuits. Bride Emily’s grandparents spent their summers at the Chatham Beach and Tennis Club in the 30’s, and Emily’s family has a deep connection to the local town. Despite living in California, Emily + Scott couldn’t imagine having their wedding anywhere else.
The Chatham Beach and Tennis Club was an ideal venue for their wedding – with space for a beachside ceremony, tented reception, and beautiful grounds, we took Emily and Scott’s vision and gave them the wedding of their dreams.
Why Deering Events? Emily and Scott hired us for our Partial Planning services. Coming from California, they needed an on-the-ground wedding planner who could manage many of the details for them while they were across the country.
We also helped Emily and Scott source many of the decor – vintage china, beautiful linen rentals – to help give fulfill their vision for their wedding day.
The Vision: Emily and Scott wanted a relaxed-yet-sophisticated feel for their wedding. We did throw pillows on the tennis benches, soft pink table linens, long farm tables for the meal, vintage china, and artfully mismatched water goblets. Instead of centerpieces, we did tons of natural greens arranged along the length of the tables, accented with plenty of soft candlelight.
The Vibe: Guests strolled to the beach for a seaside ceremony – there was even a cute spot for them to stash their shoes so they could enjoy the ceremony without getting sand in them! Seating for beach ceremonies can be tricky – we ended up renting beautiful wood benches for everyone to sit on. We did a tented reception on the grounds of the Chatham Beach and Tennis Club. The Club has so many great opportunities for photos on both the beach and the tennis courts.
Our Favorite Moments: We loved the hand-written table numbers, each with a different quote from a different romantic film. The doughnut wall was amazing! Emily honored her beloved late mother by wearing her wedding band on her right hand all day. Emily and Scott also took ten minutes to themselves before entering the reception tent – they got time to breathe, enjoy a glass of champagne, and really get to enjoy the moment before the party began.
