Julianne & Andrew

Julianne and Andrew’s fall wedding grew from a single warm red color: cinnamon rose.

The vision for Julianne Hummelberg and Andrew Folley’s sumptuous fall wedding grew from a single warm red color: cinnamon rose. Julianne selected the color early on for the dresses of her eleven bridesmaids. From there, a color palette full of reds and pinks with navy accents emerged to envelope the couple’s traditional and picturesque Island wedding.

“There were some modern twists, but I was really focused on the color palette,” Julianne said. “I’ve always been obsessed with rich jewel tones.”

The California couple welcomed some 200 guests and wanted to spend time with each of the friends and family members who made the trip to the Vineyard. But that wouldn’t be possible on their wedding day. “I’ve been to weddings where they do a processional of guests after the ceremony, and that seemed overwhelming to me,” said Julianne.

She and Andrew, who both work in finance and met in Los Angeles, decided instead to plan a series of celebrations while finding ways for their sizable wedding party to enjoy time together. Julianne grew up spending summers at her family house in Vineyard Haven, where Andrew proposed in the summer of 2018. The couple was excited to introduce guests to the Island over the course of the whole weekend.

On Thursday they welcomed guests at a barbecue at the private up-Island Hancock Beach, then hosted another party at Atria in Edgartown after their rehearsal dinner on Friday. A farewell brunch at the Tower House in Chilmark (where the reception was held) took place Sunday morning.

They also found time to take breaks from the crowd. After the ceremony at The Federated Church in Edgartown, the bridal party rode in an MV Sightseeing trolley to the reception, giving the group time to celebrate with each other before rejoining the rest of the guests.“There was a cooler of champagne, no photographers, no videographers, just us and our bridal party. That just felt really special and really fun,” Julianne said.

For Julianne and Andrew, an Island wedding didn’t mean sacrificing traditions. They opted for a formal ceremony and reception and decided not to see each other before the ceremony.“It was good to build the anticipation,” Andrew said. “I appreciated that it was traditional in that way.”
