Romantic Wedding in the Berkshires

Romantic Weddings

Today’s couple, Angela and Ryan, actually eloped late last year — but they still didn’t want to miss out on a good time with friends and family. The Melideos and Flower Blossom Farm were at the top of their list to help them celebrate in style, with a night that included everything from a cocktail hour to late-night pizza.

From the bride, Angela: My husband and I actually eloped last September. We wanted a small and intimate ceremony but also wanted to be able to celebrate with family and friends at a future date. We didn’t have a ‘theme’ per se but we knew we wanted a casual vibe with no pressure for us or our guests. The Berkshires was a perfect location since we have roots spread between MA, MD and NY. We chose the Seven Hills Inn because it was the perfect mix of casual and elegant and it could accommodate almost all of our guests, most of whom came up for the whole weekend. Since there was no ceremony, the party kicked off with cocktail hour on the patio, followed by dinner, drinks, dancing, a slow-motion photo booth and late-night pizza.

We had yard games set up for Friday evening/ Saturday during the day. Custom corn hole boards, bocce, ladder golf, hanging lanterns, etc. One of my dear (and very crafty!) friends helped make a sign which read “This Is Everything” which was hung over a hammock and used for pictures.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Try not to get lost in the details… Easier said than done but try to remember that the day is about celebrating LOVE and two people starting a life together, not the centerpieces and seating cards. Also, the day will go by faster than you could ever imagine – make sure you enjoy every single moment to the fullest!!!
