Robin Grace & Lucia Page
Draw inspiration from this stylish local celebration.
March 23, 2013
Robin Grace and Lucia Page‚Äôs engagement was special two times over. While ziplining through the trees on a weekend outing in New Hampshire, Lucia turned to Robin and spontaneously popped the question. Not to be outdone, Robin opted for a more-traditional approach that evening, dropping to one knee in front of Boston Harbor after a leisurely dinner.
The natural backdrops of that day played a big part in the Medford couple‚Äôs wedding, which was held at the Saphire Estate, in Sharon. ‚ÄúWe wanted to incorporate trees, water, and nature‚ÄĒand have a very organic feel,‚ÄĚ Lucia says.
Also important to the couple was Lucia‚Äôs six-year-old son, Jackson, who brought them together in the first place: When he was a toddler, Robin was his babysitter. On the day of the wedding, in fact, Jackson got his own sterling silver wedding band‚ÄĒand custom Spiderman cake. ‚ÄúLeading up to the marriage, he kept saying, ‚ÄėThis wedding is not happening fast enough!‚Äô‚ÄĚ Lucia remembers. ‚ÄúHe was really into knowing that we were going to become a new family.‚ÄĚ
¬†‚ÄúLucia was frigid,‚ÄĚ Robin says of their outdoor portrait session. ‚ÄúI was so excited that I didn‚Äôt feel it.‚ÄĚ¬†
Robin and Lucia worked with florist John LaRoche, of BlueGuava, to bring the outside in. ‚ÄúHe had really great designs that incorporated birch,‚ÄĚ Lucia says.¬†
Jackson showed off his moves on the dance floor.
Lucia‚Äôs something blue‚ÄĒsparkly sneakers‚ÄĒmarried tradition and whimsy.
The happy family shared a moment.¬†
¬†The couple treated the children in¬†attendance to coloring¬†books, crayons, and Ring Pops.
¬†It was important to the pair to have a spiritual ceremony that honored their family‚Äôs religious backgrounds‚ÄĒChristian for Lucia, Jewish for Robin‚ÄĒso traditional touches like the breaking of the glass and Communion were incorporated.
¬†The three-tier¬†wedding cake, augmented¬†with fresh flowers, came¬†from the Danish Pastry¬†House, in Medford.
