Gabrielle and Thomas live on Cape Cod year-round, and while they certainly love summers on the Cape, they adore the quiet, cozy winters where bare trees, gray skies, and a slower pace provide a romantic backdrop for an intimate wedding. Sixty family members shared the day with the couple, witnessing their union at Falmouth Museums on the Green and then enjoying a family-style Italian meal at Osteria La Civetta. Julie Faria from Little Orphan Antiques and Sandra Cavallo from Old Silver Shed helped bring their vision of vintage romance and old world charm to life. Gabrielle and Tom are are lucky to have incredibly talented and artistic friends and family who helped them shape their wedding. Each piece of decor was handpicked from vintage markets, and Tom—a talented woodworker—worked with Gabrielle’s family to build the ceremony mantel and raised altar. Flowers were purchased at the Boston Flower Market pre-wedding and Sandra arranged into centerpieces on the restaurant table. Due to the intimate atmosphere, the couple eschewed a band or DJ and used phone playlists instead. Gabrielle shares: “While some of the nontraditional choices we made did in fact save us money, doing things our own way was more about minimizing the fuss and fostering a laid-back, authentic feel.” We simply love this couple, and the beauty and radiant love in each image from Lisa Rigby Photography!
