Kristen is American and Juan is Italian, so for their Connecticut farm wedding, they wanted to blend their two different cultures in a really fun way! They crafted a wedding most reflective of them as a couple by naming their tables after memorable moments in their relationship, gifting guests glass jars of grappa labeled “Italian moonshine”, and choosing florals + decorative objects that spoke to them. There was an underlying bohemian vibe, the coolest bridesmaid dress color ever, and a totally delish garden fresh reception menu. Kristen tells us, At the end of the day, we wanted it to feel like an intimate summer dinner outside our house with lots of candlelight and mixed cut flowers. The feeling in the room was very romantic and relaxed.
Thanks so much to Golden Hour Studios for the gorgeous photos and big congrats to Kristen + Juan on a truly beautiful day!
We’re not sure about you, but we think these bridesmaids are killin’ it in chartreuse! While it’s not the easiest color to find, we’ve rounded up a few of our fave dresses in this pretty hue for you below:
Processional: Avril 14th – Aphex Twin
Recessional: Lover's Carvings – Bibio
First Dance: Walking On A Dream – Alex Cornell + Thunder Clatter – Wild Club
That's a tough one. It was my dream, realized. We both said walking down the aisle after our kiss and seeing all our loved ones' faces.

Don't obsess with Pinterest or Instagram. It can be helpful but you'll always find something that sparks regret or envy.
Stick to your gut. There were a few moments when my color choices or rentals were debated by best friends and parents but I managed to hold firm on my desires. Best decision I ever made. Try convincing 8 bridesmaids that they'll look great in chartreuse!
Lastly, KNOW in your mind beforehand that things will look and happen not exactly as planned and let it go because in the present moment...you're tying the knot!!
