Christina & Sean: Rustic Romance at Willow Pond Bed, Breakfast, & Events

From: Spring/Summer 2015 edition

Christina Rossi and Sean Betchner pledged their lifelong commitment to one another under a canopy of willow trees, a suitable setting for the duo who met while working at a garden center as teenagers. Their outdoor wedding incorporated rustic, romantic touches that perfectly complemented the bucolic setting, such as hanging Mason jars that held floral arrangements to stand watch as the bride walked down the aisle.

Christina, a veterinarian, requested comfort foods to match the laid-back vibe that she and her groom sought, so guests were treated to chicken potpie, mashed potatoes and gravy, and four flavors of cupcakes. Their celebration was capped off when a hot dog vendor rolled up a cart near the end of the night, offering a nontraditional post-party treat for their guests. “We just wanted to have fun,” Christina says, noting that she and Sean were thrilled at the perfect beginning of their life together.
