Here at ATE, we are absolutely at no lack of gorgeous locations on our travels around the Northeastern corner of the United States. There are obvious contributing factors to a perfect locale, but the highlights include plenty of greenery, the occastional glimpse of a wave or two, and architecture that is so classic and romantic, it must have always been a spot for a good wedding! When we feel that we’ve hit the lottery most is when we see all three of these in one spot. And Bourne Mansion, where we got to spend some time this weekend with Laura and Tory as they got married, is no different!
Once it was made official at their off-site ceremony, the day called for some partying. So, upon arrival, the whole party was immediately ready for some cocktails! With our jazz trio, the party enjoyed some gentle jazzy tunes, and plenty of delicious drinks! Everyone engaged in small talk, enjoyed the visual feast just outside of the gorgeous windows, and discussed the stunning ceremony! As the cocktail hour ended, the party was ready for something more serious… both in the way of food, and dancing!
Even if the weather were nice and mild, it was definitely time to heat things up! In the ballroom, the party settled in for the reception, and the night was kicked off! After everyone took their seats, the bridal party entered to “Make My Dreams Come True”! With the surge of excitement just beginning, it was time for the main entrance of the night: the newlyweds! Laura and Tory entered their reception as the stars of the show, and to the new Harry Styles mega-hit, “Music For A Sushi Restaurant”! In their debut dance as husband and wife, Laura and Tory spun around the dance floor to “A Sunday Kind of Love”, with not a single dry eye in the house! The party briefly donned their dancing shoes to cut a rug to “Tarantella Napoletana”, and from there, it was time for the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances! Laura and her father danced to “Too Marvelous for Words”, and Tory and his Mother danced to “Time In A Bottle”! With plenty of drinks had, and food consumed to refuel, it was time for something even more exciting…
… and the dance floor was waiting! The entire party cut a rug to beloved hits, from the pop of today and yesterday, and everything in between! There were plenty of highlights, but the party especially loved “This Will Be,” “Love Man,” and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” as well as “More!” After such a blast of a reception, hardly anyone wanted to go home, but with such amazing memories made, it would surely be a night that they would not soon forget! Congratulations, Laura and Tory!
