Meishan + David – Lyman Estate, Waltham, MA

On a beautiful evening in September, Meishan and David were married at the historic Lyman Estate in Waltham.   The bridal party got ready at the estate but it wasn’t until the couples emotional first look, that they first saw each other.   Meishan’s dress was absolutely stunning, and the look on David’s face when he was her was priceless!  Their family and bridal party joined them for photos and soon after their first look they were married on the lawn of the estate in a beautifully intimate ceremony.

Ceremony musicians were positioned on the porch and played as guests arrived as well as for the ceremony and cocktail hour.   Their intimate group of family and friends were seated in white garden chairs, and the landscape of the estate served as the backdrop of  their very beautiful, warm ceremony.    And because they wouldn’t have it any other way,  their precious pooches, took on the roles of ring bearer and flower girl! Cuteness!

With weather in their favor, cocktail hour took place on the porch.  To take advantage of all that the beautiful estate had to offer, their reception, bar, formalities, dancing and dessert were inside the various rooms, lending to the intimacy of their day.  The ballroom was set for an elegant dinner comprised of long tables and gorgeous florals in various shades of pink.   The bridal party was introduced into the ballroom followed by the bride and groom for their first dance.  Before dinner was served a heartfelt welcome and gracious thank you was given by Meishan and David, to their guests, for being part of their very special day.

After dinner, guests were invited in the the Oval Room for some fun, traditional formalities including their cake cutting, bouquet toss, garter removal and toss.  Simultaneously, the ballroom was being transformed into a dance floor by moving the dinner tables aside, turning down the lights and the DJ turning his lights UP!  When guests were invited back into the ballroom, the party really began, dessert was served in the Dining Room and their guests favors of Tea Forte were set out.
