“We wanted timeless but bold, classic but a bit Old Hollywood,” explains the bride. Details like the gold chargers and art deco-style chairs helped create this feel.
Brittany Beran & Paul Matthew Winston
Family was at the center of the day from start to finish. Brittany’s mother and sister were her matron and maid of honor, while her brothers, Blaine and Bryan, walked her down the aisle, as their father had recently passed away. “I love that it became innately so much more intimate that way.”
The flowers by Roadside Blooms balanced drama with simplicity, as did Mattie’s statement bow tie by Brackish, set against his white J. Crew suit jacket.
“The love was palpable to every person in attendance,” event designer Amy DeVito says. The personalized ceremony was even more touching because Mattie’s wedding ring belonged to Brittany’s late father. And Brittany’s veil—stunning with original pearls, Chantilly lace, and raw silk—was custom made by Nadya D. Studio from her mother’s wedding gown.
Cannon Green was the perfect canvas for the “rustic Italian villa” feel the couple wanted to give their guests, DeVito relates. The Italian inspiration was due, in part, to the fact that the couple was set to spend their honeymoon in Italy until the pandemic proved otherwise. The evening’s look was a combination of relaxed Italian countryside and chic modern, creating an elevated, luxurious vibe.
The décor featured rattan, checkered marble, greenery, stoneware, pewter, candles, and personalized tortoiseshell napkin rings.
For their send-off, pop-out streamers enveloped the couple in a riot of ribbon and laughter.
