If you’re at all like me, your day doesn’t really start until you’ve had your first sip of coffee, and our trusty Keurig® brewer is my first stop as I head into the office. So when the Aisle Society ladies worked with Keurig Green Mountain® to create a series of coffee-inspired wedding inspiration shoots, I just knew I had to share!
The series follows our coffee-loving couple Samantha and Matt from proposal through newlywed life, and if java is the way to your heart like it is to mine, you’re going to love all of the ideas for incorporating your favorite drink into your wedding!
5 Proposal Tips to Make it Special
Planning a surprise proposal? Don’t do the expected “ring in champagne” routine. Instead, choose an intimate dinner at home and hide “Will you Marry Me?” at the bottom of a coffee mug! For your dinner at home (their favorites cooked by you of course!), try adding romantic décor elements and pick a color palette. This gorgeous Keurig® K200 brewer in Imperial Red matches perfectly with strawberries and cake. The brewer is available in a wide range of colors to fit any kitchen!

The Bridal Shower
There couldn’t be a more perfect theme for a sophisticated and charming bridal shower than High Tea! I’m swooning over the gorgeous details in this garden soiree based on the theme “Love is Brewing.” Picture it: guests invited to bring gifts to help a bride-to-be host her very own afternoon tea! Think some of her favorite fresh blends for her Keurig® K475 brewer, teapots, coffee jugs, creamers, sugar bowl, cake stands and serving utensils! Be sure to check with the bride to see if she loves modern, vintage, or classic kitchen wares, and what her preferred color palette is, and to include these details within the invites.

Something Turquoise pulled together a beautiful and memorable hotel welcome gift, complete with a personalized DIY K-Cup® pod tutorial! His and Hers favorite Green Mountain Coffee® beverages are easily made customized with a simple permanent marker, and no matter what your wedding style, your unique gift is a total cinch!

The Perfect Reception
A self-serve coffee and dessert bar is much more than a drink station when styled to the nines with gorgeous details! This stunning rustic display features multiple Keurig® K475 brewers in Sandy Pearl and Black and yummy treats like donut hole stir sticks! Let your guests choose from pretty mix and match teacups (to tie in with the High Tea bridal shower!) or personalized paper cups. After choosing their cup, guests can select their own K-Cup® pod of Green Mountain Coffee®! Take it a step further by selecting your own favorites as “signature drinks.”

Elizabeth and Bill woke up on the morning of their October wedding to clear blue skies and warm temperatures—the perfect day for their perfect celebration! The rolling hills of Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington, CT set the scene for their romantic, interfaith ceremony, which incorporated both Catholic and Jewish traditions and vows the couple wrote themselves. Hana Floral Design, True Event, and Ryan Designs worked with Elizabeth and Bill to create a timelessly elegant tented reception with crystal chandeliers, lanterns, and a family-style communal feast. On their second date, the couple bonded over a shared love of good food and wine, and their wedding was an opportunity to share all of their favorites with their nearest and dearest. Russell Morin Catering & Events outdid themselves with a menu that included lobster rolls, bacon-wrapped dates, Momofuku-style pork buns, and Bill’s wedding must-have: pigs in a blanket with spicy mustard. Elizabeth shares “The entire day was exactly what we wanted – a celebratory ode to our relationship with all of those we love.” We are positively spellbound by the pure love and happiness glimped in each image from Erin McGinn Photography!
How did you select your venue?
Everyone who knows Bill and me know that we love to indulge in good food and wine. Bill won me over when on our second date, he took me to one of the best restaurants in the West Village – L’Artusi – and suggested that we order a bunch of plates and share everything. He ordered an inordinate amount of food for just two people and this became the first of a million feasts we’d share together. As soon as we got engaged, we looked at our wedding as an opportunity to share in our favorite things with the people we love most and to give our friends and family a glimpse at why we love each other. This, coupled with our desire to hold a romantic, interfaith ceremony outside on a vineyard, a special place to us, led us to find Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington, CT. We fell in love with the intimate grounds, the beautiful New England-style winery and the opportunity that the blank space of the vines and the Sperry tent gave us to craft our black tie wedding from the grass up.
Describe your wedding flowers.
The flowers were one of our favorite components of our wedding. We knew instantly that we wanted to work with Yumiko Fletcher of Hana Floral Design. We loved the organic, natural style that she brings to all of her work and knew that we wanted those feelings invoked at our event. We chose a natural and neutral color palette to pop against the vibrant autumn colors we hoped would be alive for us and to contrast with the rustic touches of the vineyard. To anchor our interfaith ceremony, we had a gorgeous chuppah/altar structure with drapery, silver dollar eucalyptus, and a scattering of lanterns and blush and ivory rose petals throughout the aisle. The whole thing was incredibly romantic amongst the vines.
Do you have any memories or stories to share?
I remember just being completely at ease throughout the day. Spending the morning getting ready and sipping prosecco with my closest girlfriends, as aunts and friends stopped by our room, was just so much fun. Getting to the winery and finally seeing Bill in the vines felt like the real beginning of the day.
Heartbeat Dance Band gave the evening an incredible energy that kept our guests on their feet throughout the reception, and we ended the evening with an after party (complete with late night sliders) at the incredibly cute Engine Room in downtown Mystic, a bar that reminded us of being in our own neighborhood in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
I loved looking around the whole night and seeing our friends and family dancing and singing and drinking with each other. The height of this was definitely during the hora when everyone was linking arms and dancing in circles with the people around them in what looked like complete joy and happiness. Erin McGinn captured these moments – and all the others – so authentically and beautifully.

Nothing could be better than a bright, sunny Brooklyn day to play host to a relaxed and colorful celebration in the city! Heather and David chose the gorgeous Brooklyn Botanic Garden for their nuptials—it’s the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of New York! Working with the dream team of Dominique Bell Events and Denise Fasanello Flowers, the couple brought their whimsical vision to life with fluffy pink and fuchsia peonies, colorful centerpieces of tulips, garden roses, and kumquats, and an adorable customized cake topper with their wedding date in balloons. We love the open, airy feel of their celebration, and it’s captured beautifully in all of the images from Lara Kimmerer!
