Kathryn + Rob Married | Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station Wedding | Connecticut Destination Wedding Photographer

Kathryn and Rob have been living in Switzerland for over a year and have had the pleasure of  traveling a bit around Europe. They incorporated the travel theme to their Connecticut destination wedding. There were leather luggage tags for place cards,the tables were named with cities they have visited together.  There was lots of travel themed decor, suitcases, globes, and a suitcase for the cards box.  They collected post cards from every place they traveled to, setting up a post card station as the guest book. Guests wrote special messages to the newlyweds and placed them in a personalized mailbox. So neat! They will reuse the mailbox for their first home when they move home to the US.  To incorporate Switzerland into the wedding, the couple chose a signature drink called the “Aperol Spritz”, which is a very popular Swiss drink to have in the summer. It is drank before dinner, stimulates appetite and it’s bright orange. They also gave each guest an adorable gift box with authentic swiss chocolate bites as favors.  To share a bit of her Polish heritage at the wedding reception celebration, Kathryn’s parents gave a Polish blessing. The parents gave the couple a silver coin, bread, salt and wine.  The bride and groom each tasted a piece of bread to signify: “May you never go hungry”. They each sipped a little wine to signify: “Enjoy the sweetness in life”. They each placed a spec of salt on their tongue to signify: “May you overcome the bitterness in life. The Silver Coin siginfies “ may you be wealthy with good health and never be in a financial stress”. The parents kissed the couple as a sign of welcome, unity and love.

Kathryn and Rob are an adorable couple and if you missed the wedding here is a little peek at their beautiful wedding day.  Congrats Kathy + Rob xoxoxo
