The Perfect Fall Wedding: Sharon, Connecticut

The wedding was held at a private home located at the top of the Appalachian mountain range in Sharon, Connecticut . From the Ceremonial area, guests were awed by the beautiful view of hundreds of acres of trees…which were beginning to show their bright Fall colors.

After the Ceremony, the guests were bused to the wedding reception…also located in Sharon… in farm country. Cocktails were enjoyed outdoors, under the blue skies of this perfect autumn afternoon.

When the guests entered the tent…they were greeted with elegant country d├ęcor: tall trees decorated the center poles (which were filled with tiny votive candles)…and lush floral arrangements (matching the colors of the Bridal bouquet) decorated the tables, sitting atop beautiful tablecloths.

It was a very special evening of dining and dancing with family and friends.
