I'm all about highlighting unique and cool wedding venues, so today I'm going to highlight the wedding of Erica and Chris who were married at the Lanam Club in Andover, MA. Before I saw their wedding photos, I had never heard of the Lanam Club, nor in the ten years I've been working here have I had one of our brides tell me that was where she was getting married. So with my curiosity piqued, I wandered over to the website of the Lanam Club and read a little about their history.
Built in 1916 on a luxuriant hillside overlooking the winding Shawsheen River below, the original house mirrored the vision and spirit of its owner, William M. Wood, late president of the American Woolen Company. He began construction of a mansion located 150 yards south of his own home, “Arden.” The new home “Orlando” was completed by late 1916. The interior of the space boasts large hand carved oak quarter-panels, ceilings featuring hand molded plaster rosettes, and a marble fireplace that sets a wonderful ambiance. The terraces on the property have a beautiful space for your wedding ceremony, and the grounds themselves provide great opportunity for some spectacular wedding photos (those trees though, I mean come on!).
I am so excited to share these photos that were captured by Greg Brett Photograhy (gregbrett.com) of Erica & Chris. Erica walked down the aisle in a light gold wedding dress by Maggie Sottero, while Greg wore a classic gray suit that complimented her dress perfectly. I can actually almost feel their excitement in their first look photos - congrats you two from all of us at Marry & Tux Bridal!
