Cake and Throwbacks

The Waveny House in New Canaan, Connecticut is one of East Coast’s little secrets. It’s a hidden treasure that just so happens to make the perfect wedding backdrop. 

Francesco and Andrea both fell in love in New York. It was a romantic story coming straight from the pages of a classic romance from the 80s.  It went something like this- they become friends and eventually, she gets impatient and makes a move. He just can’t say no, and they fall in love! 

They soon traveled the world together. Then, they make the big move to San Francisco and learn to live together in a 330sqft studio, but eventually make the rest of the West Coast their backyard.

When he finally proposed, she quickly uttered the words “Please don’t drop that!” They got married on September 29, 2019. They immediately reached out to Around Town Entertainment to perform for their very special day and we were very happy to say “I Do.”

The setting on this day took place at a historic mansion wedding venue. The inspiration for Francesco and Andrea’s wedding came from the pages of Vanity Fair or a Ralph Lauren ad. The venue matched the classic and elegant style that the bride and groom wanted to deliver to their very important guests. They even kept the color scheme simple based on the unique room color of the ballroom, which was turquoise, by using a simple color pallet of navy and silver accents with all whitefloral arrangements to pay homage to being by the ocean!

The wedding band was excited to play in this stunning location. The scenery was beautiful! We start in the Walled Garden, where Around Town Entertainement’s pianist performed a trio of classic throwbacks from The Beatles and Patrick Doyle as the wind breezed through the open fields and lush gardens. The interior of the mansion matched the wedding song playlist perfectly. It was very vintage-inspired, with seemingly endless picturesque areas for the guests to capture  in their memories forever.

The reception was inside and we loved how nice it looked! Very old but fit the perfect frame as a jazz trio from Around Town Entertainment played acoustic tunes from Queen and Redbone to start the party! A ton of the guests were already packing the dancefloor and we are so happy they all came out early to see the show!

The wedding band kept the dancing going inside all night long, the bar was almost running out of drinks and people needed air outside so they could breath! Wow so fun and epic! We set us some extra speakers outside so people could hear the music and get access to their next drink! Our favorite part of the evening was the celebratory cake cutting. They chose the son ”The Distance” by Cake. Very appropriate, and so fun! We can’t wait to return here for years to come!

The end of the night could not have been more beautiful. The energy of the wedding brought us love and joy! We couldn’t have asked for a better day filled with love, happiness and joy as we celebrated the union together for Francesco and Andrea as officially husband and wife.
