Nothing makes my heart beat a little bit faster than a military wedding: there’s something about the tradition and the well-deserved pomp and circumstance that makes my eyes water, and this winter wedding from one of our favorites, Jennifer Larsen, is proof of just that. Daria + Matt’s February wedding at West Point and Highlands Country Club are all of our favorite things rolling into one: romantic, elegant and eternally classic. From bold color palette and service dress, to the historic church and guest appearance of their sweet puppy, Daisy, we can’t stop swooning!Read More

From the Bride: Even before Matt and I got engaged, we always wondered where we would have our wedding given that our families are 3 hours apart. We came up with the idea of getting married somewhere between our two families to make it convenient and also have the opportunity to explore a new area. Once we got engaged, we stuck to that idea and looked at a bunch of venues between Long Island and Albany, NY. When we came across Highlands Country Club in Garrison, we knew immediately that it was the clear winner. It had everything we could have hoped for – a charming, intimate feel with so many gorgeous, easy-going details, and an absolutely stunning outside veranda. It was perfect for us and set the tone so well for the rustic chic theme we had in mind. Once we booked Highlands Country Club everything fell into place in terms of our décor and little details. Since we were getting married in June, we wanted to keep the color scheme very light and whimsical with pops of beautiful soft corals and pinks. For our wedding inspiration, we looked to Martha Stewart and the beautiful real weddings on Style Me Pretty to come up with the little ideas we knew we wanted to try. Throughout the months of our wedding prep we always tried to keep it simple and fun, focusing on just a few things at a time so that it never got too overwhelming. With the help of our amazing vendors and a few exciting DIY projects, everything we imagined seemed to fall into place so effortlessly. As our wedding drew closer, one of the most rewarding parts of the planning was seeing all of our details come together in a way that was even better than we had pictured it. From the intimate, happy setting to the light-hearted, fun feel, everything really felt perfect. Our wedding was everything we hoped it would be and so much more.
