August 11th. 2012. On her wedding day, Kaitlin Gaglione felt like she was in a real life fairy tale, marrying the man of her dreams. The most memorable moment of the day for her husband Anthony Valletta was standing up front during the ceremony and seeing Kaitlin and her parents at the other end of the aisle with all of their family and friends there to witness their special day.
With 260 guests, Kaitlin and Anthony needed a big venue. They chose Willowbend Country Club for their wedding ceremony and reception because they loved the stunning view of the golf course as well as the openness of the reception hall. “Kaitlin and Anthony had a beautiful tented cocktail reception and ceremony on the golf course,” says Private Events Director Terry Morris. “It was an amazing wedding. The guests were treated to a Cape Cod raw bar, lobster dinner and signature candy station. The guests danced the night away and ended the evening with hand-rolled cigars and cordials on the outdoor patio.”
When planning the wedding, the most important thing for Kaitlin was finding the best photographer. For Anthony, having a great band that would get everyone on their feet was a high priority. Kaitlin chose black for her bridesmaids’ dresses because it’s the perfect backdrop for any other color. They factored in her favorite color of turquoise in many of the details and chose hot pink flowers for the pop feel she was looking for.
“For the theme we wanted to keep it Cape Cod and beachy, but at the same time make sure there was a modern feel to it,” says Kaitlin.
This real wedding was featured in Southern New England Wedding magazine’s 2013 issue.
