Nathan and Jayme are another favorite of mine. Nathan is a member of the United States Navy and Jayme was a college student at the time. They were on a very limited budget, Jayme doing all the planning with her busy class schedule while Nathan was away in training. In comes Chris Angione of Carriage House Caterers, takes the bride by the hand and quite literally walks her through the whole process. He remarked to me that they were a “sweet young couple who needed a break.” They couldn’t have been in better hands, the bride took care of the dress shopping while Chris worked out the perfect menu for them, made sure he had enough staff on, helped her pick out flowers, linens, table ware from our preferred vendor All Seasons Rentals and what kind of alcoholic beverages would be served and how much was needed. The cake was provided by Monica Banas of Monet Baking Company.
Nathan came home and literally swept Jaymie off her feet (reminded me of Richard Gere and Debra Winger in An Officer and a Gentleman). The entire party of groomsmen were in dress whites that would make the hearts of women of any age flutter. Jayme was in a flowing white taffeta with a beautiful train. The photo of them taken by CT Photo Group under the grape arbor with the sun glowing from behind them is one of my favorites.

When we first learned about Tarrywile, we fell in love with it. This is a great spot for any event, but our wedding was perfect. We held the ceremony under the grape arbor which was in full bloom. Then our cocktail hour was on the veranda which was also very nice. Then our reception was inside the Mansion. So many people complimented us on what a beautiful Mansion it was, and wanted to know how we had found our about Tarrywile. My husband and I also love hiking the trails. Becky and Anne-Marie are so wonderful to work with, and are willing to do so much for the brides. This venue is affordable and is much more unique than a standard banquet hall. We loved our wedding at Tarrywile.
Wedding date: 7/13/13
