REBECCA AND CARLTON'S WEDDING IN THE BERKSHIRES

A note from Jaclyn: Rebecca and Carlton’s fall Berkshire wedding at the Country Club of Pittsfield was filled with lots of love and emotion. Rebecca and Carlton are both fabulous musicians and met 11 years ago while working on a college musical production. It wasn’t until years later they found true love. The two of them are “old souls rekindled by each other’s passion for life, love, laughter and music.”

The inspiration for Rebecca & Carlton’s wedding was old Hollywood glamour of the 1920′s. Their wedding had touches of vintage lace, elegant pearls and sparkly rhinestones. Rebecca kept the color palette soft and romantic; black and whites, crèmes, blush, and touches of pink. Rebecca and her mother worked hard on all the fine details of the wedding including a beautiful Chupah created by her mother and friends. Rebecca’s hydrangea bouquet was filled with beautiful vintage brooches and from the stems hung a locket which held photos of each of her grandparents. 

This was a wedding full of surprises. Not only for the guests, but for the bride and groom as well! The first surprise came right after the best man gave his speech. He invited everyone up on the to the dance floor to get the party started! The next surprise came to both the guests and to the groom, when Rebecca sang the most amazing rendition of Etta James’ “At Last” I have ever heard! Before she could finish the entire room was giving her a standing ovation. The most emotional surprise of the evening was when Carlton’s brother and sister-in-law sang Bob Dylan’s “To Make You Feel My Love”. It was a very sentimental moment and the couple couldn’t have been more surprised. 

Congratulations Rebecca & Carlton!
