Newport weddings are always special, but this all-white affair at the stunning Belle Mer truly stands out. It’s chic with a touch of glamour, making every beautiful image captured by Zev Fisher Photography feel even more fabulous than the last. It’s winter wedding perfection, and you can see it all here.
From Zev Fisher…Tara & Evan had a classy celebration on the beautiful Goat Island in Newport, Rhode Island. Despite the cold December breeze, they were still open to taking portraits outdoors, taking advantage of that gorgeous evening light. Golden Gate Studios really spruced up the evening with stunning white flower arrangements maintaining that bright and clean feeling throughout. The reception was kicked off by their first dance amid falling snow and they danced the night away to tunes played by Boss.
From The Bride…Our entire relationship has been in New York, this is where we met, dated and fell in love, but our hearts have always been in New England. When we got engaged in front of the lighthouse at Castle Hill Inn in Newport, Rhode Island, we knew that Newport would be the perfect place for our destination wedding. We both wanted to find that special place, on the water, and driving over the Newport bridge is just magical. While Newport is generally known for being a summer destination, we decided we wanted to do something different and host a unique event. After seeing the Belle Mer, with its all white, classic and modern design, we fell in love with the idea of a winter wedding. We envisioned a December black tie affair, with all white and silver decor, white flowers, crystallized branches, snowflakes and blue icy lighting. One of the most memorable moments of the evening was our first dance as a married couple which took place under falling snow. The bride’s lace and organza mermaid gown, along with the groom’s wardrobe change, from a classic black tuxedo into a custom white tuxedo jacket, added to the glamour and romance. Photographer Zev Fisher’s editorial and elegant style perfectly captured the dramatic, elegant and classy affair we imagined. The bride truly felt like a princess in a winter wonderland.
