There’s just something about a rustic New England wedding that feels so intimate and authentic. Dozens of venues on the North coast that lend themselves to this theme du jour, one of our favorites being the Barn at Gibbet Hill in Groton, MA. Radiance had the pleasure of performing at Christine and Justin’s gorgeous wedding at the Barn recently, and Ruth Eileen‘s glowing photos speak to the charm of this special site.

The Barn at Gibbet Hill began hosting weddings long before Bridal Guide sited barn weddings as one of the 5 Hottest Wedding Trends. In 2002 Jed and Asia planned a grand outdoor wedding, only to be rained out. The Barn was completely unrenovated then, but in true rustic fashion, hay bales were rearranged and the tractor was moved outside and a makeshift aisle was created. The magical effects of the wedding remained, and two years later a massive overhaul of the Barn was completed. The Barn at Gibbett Hill opened its doors and CBS-4 soon after named it the best wedding venue in the Boston area.

The Barn has an outside, heated deck with a permanent roof over it that is used for cocktail receptions. Christine and Justin decorated with romantic lights and sweet floral arrangements, transforming the space into a truly enchanting experience. Once inside, the Barn can hold up to 220 people with a dance floor. Good thing too, because Radiance had the couple and their guests light on their feet all evening!

Everything about Meaghan and Brendan’s August wedding at The Dorrance in Rhode Island screamed vintage glamour. Meaghan and her ladies began the day by primping at the Hotel Providence. The Bride’s antique jewelry and shoe detailing were the perfect match for her gorgeous lace dress with sweetheart neckline. The couple said their vows at the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, and the newly renovated church made a stunning backdrop for their ceremony photos. Guests enjoyed a local Rhode Island treat, Del’s Frozen Lemonade, before heading to The Dorrance for dinner and dancing courtesy of the Splash! band.

Formerly a Federal Reserve Bank, The Dorrance has maintained its pre-Great Depression grandeur with high ceilings, ornate detailing and marble floors and walls. Glittering tablescapes by Elaine’s Flowers added the final touch to Meaghan and Brendan’s glamorous vintage vision. Splash! had guests dancing before dinner was even served, topping off a stunning day with an epic party!

Based on M Studios‘ photos in the gallery below, Splash! had guests dancing their pants off right up until the very end.

Matt and Morgan’s September wedding rivaled the sweetest of candy coated delights. Held at Morgan’s childhood home, everything appeared to have been wrapped in a spun sugar glow, right down to the faces of their adorable flower girls. Guests enjoyed a refreshing lemonade before watching bridesmaids float down the aisle in yummy pale pink gowns. After Matt and Morgan’s “I Do’s,” the group headed into a tent covered floor to ceiling in decor good enough to eat.

Matt and Morgan’s story began in college, Stonehill College in Easton, MA, to be exact. The couple’s alma mater holds a special place in their heart. Not only did they choose the campus for the site of their engagement photos, but also held a Stonehill sign at their reception for a photo with all of their former classmates.

“FreeStyle did an incredible job at our wedding. Everyone danced the entire night because of the band. Thanks for helping make our wedding perfect.” -Matt & Morgan

While a small island, Nantucket holds countless cozy hotels and luxurious clubs and restaurants that make ideal settings for a variety of weddings. Continuing our blog series highlighting weddings on Nantucket that Wilson Stevens bands performed at this past summer is Jen and Wayne’s celebration which took place at Galley Beach.

Boasting an “elegant but casual” atmosphere, Galley Beach‘s restaurant has enjoyed countless accolades over the years. But it’s their stunning beachfront views that created the perfect scenery for Jen and Wayne’s late September wedding.

After Jen walked down a boardwalk inspired aisle, the couple exchange vows overlooking the ocean. But before letting loose to The Hub at their reception, the couple took advantage of Nantucket’s idyllic backdrops. Jen and Wayne posed for photos with a vintage fire truck (which belonged to The Nantucket Hotel) as well as the quaint village streets.
