Nicole Gilbert & Rich Hartman

After Rich Hartman proposed to his love Nicole Gilbert during their vacation in Turks and Caicos, the couple set forth a celebration channeling the decadent vibe of the Roaring Twenties. "We wanted our wedding to be classy, timeless, and fun," explains Nicole. And where better to go back in time than at Linden Place? This Bristol manse is the historic home that hosted Hollywood for the filming of 1974's The Great Gatsby starring Mia Farrow and Robert Redford. In addition to the classic setting, every detail—from the spectacular fonts on the paper to beaded bling and a gold tone palette—hit a vintage or Art Deco tone. Take a look into their exciting day.
