Modern Classic Wedding in New England | Katie Slater Photography

I haven’t spent much time in New England, but every time I feature a New England wedding I’m ready to book a flight. There’s just something about the coast mixed with the stunning old architecture. And today’s modern classic wedding in New England has both, plus a fresh and modern color and pattern palette and some sweet details.

Favorite moment of the day? The moment we both revel in was at the church. We were sitting toward the side of the altar listening to the readings. We were able to take a deep breath, hold hands, and look out at all our family and friends that had come there for us.

Advice for couples planning now? At some point you have to stop planning. Stop looking for ideas on Pinterest, Etsy, and all those wedding blogs. Take your ideas and details and polish them.

We wanted a timeless, classic, yet modern wedding. Our ceremony and reception locations were beautiful, with amazing architecture. The colors were gray (with touches of mercury glass & gray chevrons), pinks, peach, and coral. We wanted to incorporate touches from Paris and our other travels. (The bride even saved a Parisian newspaper from the day they got engaged in Paris and incorporated it into their ring shots.)

What made your wedding YOU?

It included details of our engagement and travels, included our faith, family, and friends! It also included some handmade personal details:  Handwritten signage for all of our details was done by my sister, Aimee. We gave the photographer, videographer, florist, and DJ “survival” gift bags with waters, coffees, and snacks. Guests who stayed at the hotel received gift bags with custom tags containing: a welcome note, directions to the ceremony and reception, local map, playing cards, trail mix, local potato chips, bottled water, truffles, and a split of champagne. We created our church programs.

I love that idea of giving your vendors who will be there with you ALL day a little survival kit. Also, don’t forget to feed them! You need to include them in your head count for a meal. SO important, since those people are there working for you all day.

Such a lovely wedding isn’t it? Congrats to Jenny & Geoff.
