A Gatsby-esque Wedding

“And I like large parties. They’re so intimate.”

-F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

White feathers draped in pearls, old-time typewriters filled with meaningful words, worn leather suitcases, and well wishes written in the glow of antique lamps.  Exquisite food, layers of delicious cupcakes, pale pink peonies, and warm, welcoming hosts.  A house filled with joyful guests and a stunning couple in love.  Grace & Nathan’s wedding at the Glover Mansion couldn’t have achieved its Great Gatsby theme more perfectly!

It’s only fitting that a party set during Gatsby’s time took place in a building that was alive and thriving during the 1920’s.  The Glover Mansion is proud to be a part of this gorgeous wedding, and we hope that the details of the house played well into the theme.

The rain made an appearance the morning of the wedding, but didn’t dampen the spirits of the vendors or the amazing, fun wedding party.  In fact, it made for gorgeous and unique photos by Oxana Brik.  Plus, it cleared up just in time for the ceremony to take place in the Glover Mansion’s garden.

Congratulations to Nathan & Grace, a truly gorgeous couple inside and out.  Her planning and energy matched with his comedy made for a perfect event.  A special thanks to everyone who made it happen including the families of the couple, Chris from Complete Music, Esther from Special Touch and Red Rock Catering.

“He smiled understandingly-much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life… It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
