Wanting a true Cape Cod wedding with all of the amenities of a golf course to pay tribute to Kevin’s love of the game, Cristina and Kevin chose Willowbend Country Club as their wedding venue. “We are both from New England and my parents live on Cape Cod,” says Cristina. “Beaches, golf courses, ice cream stores, mini-putt, cranberries, beautiful homes – the Cape has it all.”
Loving the planning process from start to finish, Cristina used magazines, blogs and photography websites to gather inspiration to create a weekend-long affair; a casual rehearsal dinner with a traditional New England clambake was followed by their wedding and day-after brunch. Cristina says, “Having a full weekend of events was a great creative outlet for all of our other ideas.”
A comfortable and relaxed atmosphere was created using warm and bright tones of yellow, green and cream, all contrasting beautifully against crimson hues; the green florals and leaves with the golf course links, the reds with the colors of the antique farmhouse on the property, as well as Willowbend’s very own cranberry bog.
Looking back at the time she spent planning her wedding, Cristina recalls, “I honestly think I enjoyed that last week the best, when it was all coming together. I enjoyed every single moment of the week leading up to the wedding.”
