Ester & Nate
Late Summer, Stonover Farm, Lenox, MA
Step into the fairytale wedding of Esther and Nate, where their love story danced under the Berkshire skies at the enchanting Stonover Farm in Lenox. Nate + Esther's magical three-day celebration wasn’t just a wedding but a cinematic experience.
The scene opened with a picturesque rehearsal dinner alongside Stonover's duck pond. And as the sun sets, a live band sets the mood for what's to come.
The following day, the path to the upper barn transformed into an aisle, where vows were exchanged and promises made. As the ceremony concluded, guests were invited to a cocktail hour inside the barn that resembled nothing short of an enchanted forest.
But oh, the evening had more twinkling surprises! Glowing lantern trails beckoned the guests to a dreamy, clear-top tent where the setting sun weaved gold into the night. And as the skies turned dark, magnificent butterfly puppets fluttered, leading the way back to the enchanted forest. There, living tree performers, in their whimsical glory, ignited the dance floor, ensuring memories that would last a lifetime.
Now, let’s dish out a secret: with his rich restaurant background, Nate was the maestro behind the cocktail planning. Esther, our radiant bride, wasn't content just wearing the white dress; she wore her chef's hat, too. Teaming up with us, she sprinkled her culinary inspiration over every dish, ensuring every bite was a part of their love story.
