Sunshine with a Side of Snowflakes

Winter Wonderland at Mystic Seaport

We are certainly enjoying the warm weather and sunny skies as our busy summer wedding season approaches. While everyone loves a summer wedding in New England, we can't help but also get excited for our couples who are just beginning to plan their winter weddings. For those of you who prefer to bundle up rather than sweating it out in the sun, perhaps a snowy soiree is more up your alley! We still have a few dates available at Stonington Meadows and Mystic Seaport for this upcoming season, and would be delighted to host your winter wedding at either of these locations, or at a location of your choosing. Please contact us for more information!

Gay Marriage Legalized in Rhode Island

Last week, Governor Lincoln Chafee signed the bill legalizing same-sex marriage in Rhode Island, making RI the 10th state to legalize marriage between same-sex couples. Same-sex marriage has been legal in Connecticut since 2005, and we couldn't be prouder to have been a part of many gay and lesbian weddings in CT over the past several years. We are looking forward to meeting many more special couples, and making history in RI this upcoming season.

Here are a few shots from one of our favorite same-sex weddings:

Caitlin & Pavli's Food Tasting

This time of year is full of exciting things for our Sales and Event Coordinators, our Culinary Team, and most importantly, our 2013 Brides-and-Grooms-to-be! While our coordinators are busy planning and preparing for our upcoming wedding season, our chefs are busy perfecting recipes, creating new menu items, and preparing yummy treats for tasting events.

This week, Caitlin and Pavli came in for their food tasting at Latitude 41 Restaurant in Mystic, and chose their final menu for their June wedding at the Narragansett Towers. Here are a few sneak peeks of their delicious menu selections:

Bistro Steak Crostini
Horseradish Cream, Cracked Pepper, Parmesan, Chive Oil

Gourmet Beef Sliders

Sushi Sampler
Unagi, California, Spicy Tuna, Philadelphia and Spicy Salmon Rolls
Pickled Ginger Soy, Wasabi Aioli

My personal favorite was the sushi...hand-rolled by Chef Andrew and Chef Doug just minutes before our guests arrived. Check out some of our other fan-favorites from the Sample Menus on our Website!

We can't wait for Caitlin and Pavli's wedding, and for the rest of the upcoming tastings for our 2013 wedding couples!

Birch Tree Wedding Cake

Our talented pastry chef is always coming up with new and creative ways to showcase the personalities of each of our clients through their wedding cake. Whether that be through a color scheme, monogram or intricate design work, each cake is customized to the Bride and Groom's preference. 

This is one of my recent favorites - simple and elegant, perfect for a winter wedding!
