Callie and Sean live in California, but when they got engaged they knew they wanted to have their wedding back east where Callie grew up. They chose the weekend before Halloween in picturesque Western Massachusetts.
Callie wore her grandmother’s halo cocktail ring and Sean wore a tuxedo he’d had custom made when he was on deployment in Thailand. Other personalized details included ring boxes that were handcrafted, by Callie’s dad, from a single piece of wood so the grain would line up when they are next to each other, making the perfect pair – just like Callie and Sean!
Adorable train ticket “save the date” cards celebrated Callie and Sean’s chosen venue, the lovingly restored Union Station in Northampton, originally built in 1896. One of the couple’s favorite aspects of the venue was it’s “Tunnel Bar”, located in a portion of the original train tunnel that ran to the station, perfect for vintage inspired black and white photos with the stunning tile work as a backdrop.
After the ceremony on the old train platform, guests moved inside to the Grand Ballroom, which was once the station’s main waiting area. Combining their place cards with their favors, Callie and Sean had name-specific wine glass markers hanging at the entrance to their reception where guests enjoyed dinner and dancing, and of course – a nacho bar complete with cheese fountain!
Callie and Sean made the most of their late October wedding day, even taking a moment to pose for pictures on the street with some of the annual Northampton Zombie Crawl’s zombies, but when all the partying was done, this generous couple donated their bouquets and flower arrangements to a local senior center to send a little cheer to the residents. What a great idea!
