Having never been to the Popponesset before (I live in Yarmouth Port, so New Seabury for me is a hike!!) I did not know what to expect. Upon arrival I felt as if I was in another world, the landscaping is beautiful and the Inn is literally a stones throw away from the water - come to find out after Erin & Eric's wedding. After having a first meeting with Aaron - the catering manager at the Popponesset - back in September, I knew the day would run smoothly.
Erin & Eric had planned a very unique wedding with all sorts of fun ideas up their sleeves. I just came in to make sure all of their ideas came to fruition without any stress.
From home made quoahog place cards and DIY centerpieces to their own self-logoed rap name temporary tattoos and homemade programs, I think that Erin & Erin win the prize this year for creativity and cost cutting ideas. After their ceremony in the tent on the water at the Poppy they had all of their guests go out to the beach with a stone and say a prayer or a wish for couple and throw it into the water - an old Irish blessing, which is very unique!! But, I am pretty sure that the rap the couple performed as their entrance music was a first and a last for me, and probably the most awesome entrance I have ever witnessed by a bride and groom.
To top it all off they worked with some great vendors too!! Gary from Cape Tunes, Jennifer Gunn, Bob Kahan, and Cakes by Catheren just to name a few!
Thanks to everyone for making this such a great event. I can't wait to recommend Aaron and the Popponesset to future Cape Cod brides!
