Jeff & Steve’s Clark Art Institute Wedding
Nestled in the beauty of the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, the Clark Art Institute is a venue for very special events. The beauty of the Clark campus and its exceptional spaces create the ideal setting for an event you will always remember. Constellation Culinary Group, the Clark’s exclusive caterer, creates a curated experience personalizing every detail to provide an event that is truly one-of-a-kind. Innovative cuisine, inspired by the farm-to-table spirit of the Berkshires and the abundance of locally sourced ingredients, is crafted to delight guests with bold and unexpected details. An expert team of service professionals ensure guests are served with sincere hospitality for an event beyond all expectation.
Instead of one event, Jeff & Steve stretched the party over three days – a casual welcome dinner for everyone on Friday, the wedding on Saturday and brunch on Sunday. They chose Williamstown for the weekend and The Clark Art Institute for their wedding. It’s a place that they have been visiting regularly for nearly 15 years and it holds a special meaning to them for the time they have spent hiking, enjoying cultural events and venues and the overall beauty of the area. The wedding itself took place at 6 p.m., setting the stage for what was really a great party with their friends and family.
Neither of them are steeped in traditions through their families, so they didn’t carry through any particular traditions for their wedding. If anything, the day was just a reflection of who they are as individuals and a couple – easy going and love to have fun. Their real goal was to bring together all of the people they have know over the years, create new connections among them and to create an atmosphere where people would have a memorable night.
A note from Jeff & Steve:
All of the people we interacted with to pull off this weekend are amazing professionals and some of the nicest people to boot. Every vendor was accommodating, thoughtful and kind, and made us feel like a friend and not a client. The Berkshires is a very connected place, and those we worked with have deep relationships with other vendors, shop owners, etc. to get things done brilliantly. As for Eric – he was with us on Friday for the welcome dinner and Saturday for the wedding. He even met us in April for a “meet and greet” photo session at The Clark Art Institute. To say his pictures blew us away was an understatement. The only things we asked is that he capture people naturally having fun and we didn’t want those cheesy typical wedding photos, and did he ever deliver. Two things we have heard from so many of those who attended; 1) the pictures are absolutely stunning, and 2) “your photographer was really cool.” We couldn’t agree more. Eric had a way of just fitting right into the crowd and coming up with pictures that give us, our friends and family such joy.
