For their traditional wedding at the Seamen's Inne Restaurant & Pub on the banks of the Mystic River, Middlebury-based couple Rachel and Gavin made their black-and-white color scheme pop with accents of vibrant green and purple.

Rachel wore a crushed-silk Pronovias gown, while Gavin sported a suit rented from Squire Tux in Waterford. The groom’s boutonniere and the bride’s bouquet of orchids, roses, freesia, ivy and calla lilies, were designed by Nancy Ellen’s Garden in Chester.
