Wanda and Rufino's Engagement : Litchfield, Connecticut
August 18, 2010 ENGAGEMENTS
Wanda and Rufino are to be married in the month of September in Hartford, Connecticut. Their celebration is being held at the beautiful Hartford Society Room.
We decided to take pictures at Topsmead State Forest. It's a gorgeous location and every time I go there, I'm always wondering the history of the estate on property. The following information was taken from Topsmead's website:
Topsmead State Forest is the former summer estate of Miss Edith Morton Chase, daughter of Henry Sabin Chase and Alice Morton Chase. Henry Sabin Chase was the first President of Chase Brass and Copper Company in Waterbury. Chase Brass was one of the leaders in the brass industry when Waterbury was the Brass Capital of the world. In 1917, Miss Chase received from her father approximately 16 acres on Jefferson Hill in Litchfield. Here she built a rustic cabin, which was replaced with a more substantial summer home in 1923. She hired noted architect Richard Henry Dana, Jr. to help her design and build the English Tudor style house which was completed in 1925. The exterior woodwork is of cypress, the downspouts are lead, the walls of brick and stucco, and the roof is slate. The interior woodwork is oak, as is most of the flooring. Upon her death in 1972, Edith Chase left her beloved country estate to the people of Connecticut and to be known as Topsmead State Forest. In her will, Miss Chase requested that Topsmead State Forest "be kept in a state of natural beauty". To ensure that Topsmead would remain undisturbed, Miss Chase left an endowment to be used toward maintaining and operating the buildings and grounds as they were upon her death. Nestled in the Litchfield Hills, Topsmead State Forest remains a precious piece of an era past.

The White Dress by the Shore : The Blushing Blog
As some of you may, or may not know, I got my bridal gown at The White Dress by the Shore, since I blogged about it previously. Since that blog post (and bridal shopping experience), I've been back to the store twice: a trip with my girls and a trip with my mom. Both trips were successful and all dresses are ordered. I have to say my mother is especially thrilled with her dress and can not wait to wear it.
Beth, the owner of The White Dress by the Shore, blogged about me becoming a White Dress by the Shore bride--so of course I had to share.
This is the room where I got to try on gowns, isn't it gorgeous!!
Everywhere you look in the store is beautiful.
