Downton Abbey Wedding Inspiration Shoot

With the premiere of the much anticipated season 4 of Downton Abbey just hours away, nothing hits the spot quite like a Downton themed wedding inspiration shoot.  Simple Details Events teamed up with a troop of other vendors to put together a perfectly proper country affair at the Lyman Estate in Waltham, Massachusetts.  We love their attention to all the period details: gorgeous 1920’s style gowns from Flair Bridesmaids and fabulous vintage props, which included a special edition newspaper updating guests on what the couple had been up to, champagne punch served in coupe flutes, old books and telephones and a cigar lounge after party.  One guest event arrived on horseback, perhaps in an ode to equestrian Lady Mary.  If you’re planning to bring a touch of the 20’s to your own wedding, or just want to throw a killer premiere party, consider these tasty menu ideas:

Aiguillette of Striped Bass Joinville

Potatoes à la Hollandaise

Medaillon of Spring Lamb, Chasseur

Asparagus Tips au Gratin

***

Breast of Chicken a la Rose

Waldorf Salad

***

Venetian Ice Cream

Assorted Cakes Coffee

Apollinaris White Rock

If you, like us, will be tuning in to PBS tomorrow night, happy watching and, as always, happy planning!  A huge thank you to SD Events and all the other amazing vendors that put this shoot together.  Thank you for letting us share it!  xx
