A Modern, Fun Wedding with family - with a Twist
What could be more beautiful than rich, jewel-toned colors nestled in a sea of green at a summer wedding in the Connecticut countryside?

Rachel and Bryan Fong had a clear vision for their wedding palette that was a blend of modernism, tradition, and out-of-the-box creativity. “We knew exactly what we wanted – and Bryan was really involved. He cares a lot about style. We chose deep, rich neutral tones in burgundy, navy and rose gold, to contrast with my white gown and the green of the countryside. We designed our invitations with that same burgundy background – a nontraditional style we loved.”
When it came to the venue, Rachel and Bryan chose once, and then changed their minds. “A friend of mine said, ‘you have to check out LionRock Farm.’ So, we took the drive out from NYC – and the moment I stepped out of the car, I knew this was it!”
“LionRock Farm feels like you’re in the midst of the French countryside, right here in this country. We wanted to transport people to another world. And we loved the idea of giving ourselves and our friends and families a great weekend escape.”
And what a weekend it was! “Our guests were coming from all over, so we made a big party of it. Friday night, we brought in a Wood Fire Pizza truck. Saturday was our wedding, and on Sunday we had a big brunch to end the celebration. The whole weekend was modern and fun – with a twist.”
One of those twists? Right in the middle of a lavish countryside wedding, a neon sign over the bar with their hashtag, “#letmeseethosefongs” (a nod to the 90’s classic). “We wanted to bring things into the mix that would throw people off – and oh did it! Everyone had a blast!”
One of Rachel’s favorite memories? “Bryan and I took just a few moments at sunset, between the cocktail hour and the reception, to just take a moment together and just enjoy it all.”
“I’m so glad we decided to have a video. I love watching other people’s wedding videos. You know, it happens so fast – it’s all a blur. And our byDesign Films video is something we’ll always come back to. You can really relive your day all over again.”
