Pink, Red & Black Country Wedding by Providence Classic
Suit for $398.00; 9tailors shirts in Black Windowpane and Snow for $60.00; Express Silk Tie for $39.90; A. Testoni Shoes for $499.00; Lanvin Leather Sneakers for $675.00; FOX Racing Belt for $17.99; Michael Kors Watch for $225.00
Amanda and her Carhart-loving man are getting married in Addison, Vermont next summer. This is a relaxed, outdoor affair with touches of cute personality (like those buck & doe wedding cake toppers!). With Amanda's dress on the more formal side, the groom's got to match, but still fit in with the casual scenery. I chose a stone-grey suit that complements the tone of her dress, but isn't too fancy. The windowpane shirt in black is a subtle reference to the plaid New Englanders know and love, and a simple black tie adds a touch of formality. Staying in the neutral zone keeps it all a little more masculine, and allows room for the boutonnieres to play up the colors of the flowers and bridesmaid dresses. 
This groom loves FOX Racing gear and I threw him a bone with the black belt, which totally goes with the color scheme and gives a wink to his edgier side. Black men's oxfords work for a classic route, but if he really wants to make the outfit his own, why not wear black leather sneakers? I love when grooms add their own twist. It's so much more memorable and adorably endearing!Lastly, no cuff links for this groom. His shirt doesn't need 'em - and the silver watch is both functional and good-looking. 

I couldn't decide what boutonniere to add - with this backdrop, you can do any color combination! I opted instead for a peony bloom bouquet for Amanda that showcases deep pinks and light blushes. For the boutonniere, adding in a berry, leaf or fern reminiscent of the Addison area (along with a bloom from the bride's bouquet) would top it all off. Voila!
Hope you liked this one! xoxo, Abbey of Providence Classic
