Carolyn and Jamie originally wanted to throw a garden wedding, but their concern about the possibility of rain led them to indoor venues like the New Haven Lawn Club. "Once I saw the ballroom, I was sold," says Carolyn, who wore a Melissa Sweet gown from The White Dress by the Shore. Lighting was key. "The ballroom shades were drawn for the processional, then raised before I walked in," says Carolyn. The couple wed by the fireplace—which had been decorated by their florist, Dragonfly Event.
