From Person + Killian PhotographyKristin + Rob chose the stunning Belle Mer for their wedding day, a perfect venue for a modern and chic wedding on the beautiful Newport seashore.

The late afternoon ceremony took place right outside on the pristine manicured grounds, overlooking the harbor. The bride walked down the aisle which was covered in a bed of white rose petals. The couple said their “I do’s” under a crystal chandelier and beautiful sheer white canopy.

As the sun started to set everyone moved inside for the cocktail party and evening reception. Kristin + Rob kept their color scheme neutral and elegant, a perfect compliment to Belle Mer salon’s classic white walls and pillars. Their decor was a mix of blush, champagne, white, and ivory. When we asked the bride to describe her inspiration for the wedding day, she said “modern, romantic, fresh, sophisticated, and chic”! The reception was glowing with floral hi-low centerpieces and white and gold candles, a perfect portrayal of Kristin’s vision.

There was a special after party in the Belle Mer island house with a taco truck waiting as guests entered. The lighting shifted to bright purple and blue highlights that provided a beautiful contrast to the dark night sky with delicate lanterns and uplighting.

Glamorous Rosecliff Mansion Summer Wedding

When you have a venue like Rosecliff Mansion, the actual site of the original Gatsby movie, it’s not even worth trying to compete with its epic beauty. Details with Love used it instead as inspiration, sprinkling shimmer and glamour all around, making Rosecliff and this gorgeous Bride shine even more. With Greenlion Design creating works of art and Shark Pig‘s fantastic film, we’re transported back to those good ole days and these pics are putting us in the mood for some serious champagne and celebrating.

Mansion

From Details with LoveHe looked at her in a way every girl wanted to be looked at.

The opulence, the mystery, the sparkle! What’s old is new again. It was important to M to have that Gatsby-era “feel” but with a modern twist. The grand Rosecliff Mansion (the one chosen for the original Gatsby film) in Newport, with its beautiful gardens surrounding it, was the perfect setting. Inspired by Gatsby quotes, pictures and descriptions from the time period, elegant fashion, and nature.

It came together styled as a stunning blend of grandeur by Details with Love and the Bride and Groom sparkled and shined!

Some of our favorite details include stylish invites by Papers of Newport and flourishing hand calligraphy by Heather Belle Ink that set the tone for the evenings event. A sparkling champagne tower full of gold brimmed flutes greeted the guests as they entered a room filled with a glam color palette of champagne and gold. Gorgeous tables adorned in 1920′s inspired gilded centerpieces by Greenlion Design and sweet French inspired confections by Confectionery Designs.

Time to drink Champagne and dance on the table!

Modern Nautical Newport Wedding

My hubby and I are knee-deep in planning a little Newport babymoon, and this seaside lovefest from the lens of Judy Pak has me hoping springtime rolls around, STAT. It’s every New England bride’s dream come true, with carefully curated nautical moments alongside all-white blooms styled by Stoneblossom. Kick Tuesday off right here in the full gallery.

Nautical

From The Bride… When Dave and I got engaged and started to think about our dream wedding, we knew we wanted to plan an event that would be elegant and classic with whimsical, personal touches and most of all be relaxed and fun for our guests. We live and work in Manhattan and decided we thought it would be extra special to come up with a great weekend destination – somewhere that would get people out of the city but wouldn’t be too far away for most of our guests. I had vacationed in Newport with my family growing up and had recently been back to Castle Hill Inn which is just the most magical and beautiful place – I knew it would be perfect. Dave and I took a trip to Newport and he was immediately convinced- Newport and Castle Hill would give us that perfect elegant environment for the wedding, with lots of room for fun for our guests.

We worked with Joyce Holland of Stoneblossom Florals and she became an incredibly trusted adviser and friend in planning. We weren’t stuck on any particular types of flowers but we knew we wanted the environment to feel light and soft with some minimal seaside/nautical touches. She paired lots of white and green flowers with beautiful garden roses, anenomes and other seasonal varietals which gave the perfect flecks of color for our fall celebration. She brought in tons of candles, mercury glass and other beautiful additions like lanterns and aisle decor. She was our savior! To add to Joyce’s decoration, the crew at Exquisite Events handled lighting. We picked vintage chandeliers and swathed the tent with fabric to bring the ceiling down a little lower and give it that quaint, vintage feel.

We were very lucky to have Judy Pak as our photographer. We fell in love with Judy’s signature style – light and airy, dreamy images. She captured our day to a tee from the perfectly orchestrated “first look” to those little moments that only the most skilled photographers can catch. She is a true artist.

Our cake was created by Marc and Marie Soliday/ Confectionery Designs. It was spectacular! Marie worked with Joyce to replicate the flowers in my bouquet. We were blown away when we saw it. Plus it tasted delicious. We had a most excellent band – Big Mix with Joe Shane, we brought them up from NY. I had seen them perform at a wedding many years before and they always stuck in my head. They played classic covers and even backed my husband our friend up for a little impromptu Whitesnake performance.

There were many special and personal touches throughout the weekend. From our “message in a bottle” save the dates, to our Adirondack chair escort cards (to match Castle Hill’s signature chairs) to our personalized welcome bags and signature cocktail straws, and much more, Alana Jones-Mann outdid herself in our collaboration! Alana is the queen of whimsy and details and took our visions and made them realities. She also hand letter pressed our three-piece custom invitations and created a gorgeous presentation for when they arrived to our guest’s mailboxes.

Castle Hill could not have been a more perfect venue for us. With breathtaking seaside views, the mansion and semi-permanent tent set the scene for our dream wedding. The menu was exquisite and the service is unparalleled. After the reception in the tent we hosted an after party in the mansion where our guests partied into the night. Our wedding was truly a dream, we loved every second!

Rustic and Romantic Country Wedding

This darling duo has got the right idea. They kept their nuptials local and proceed to throw the ultimate outdoor bash. With family and friends in attendance, the evening was filled with seasonal farm-to-table bites, circus tents, tea lights, Toni Chandler Flowers And Events arrangements and endless love captured by Meghan Sepe. Take a peek at the gallery and Sky Sabin Productions film for more!

Rustic

From Meghan SepeThis late summer real wedding hails from Newport, RI. Words to describe this day would be rustic, natural, romantic, youthful and pretty in pink. Their video is adorable and the bride’s blush Monique Lhuillier gown is totally awesome! 

From the beautiful Bride… Dan and I actually met a long time ago, socially, but we hadn’t crossed paths in several years. A few years ago, my mom (a personal trainer) was at the gym and ran into Dan who is a physical therapist. They hadn’t seen each other in ages and in catching up, Dan asked how I was and what I was up to now. Before long, my mom was going on and on about my business ventures, things I like to do, trips I’ve taken, how I love my dog …and that I was single. Turned out Dan was also single and after hearing so much about what we had in common personally and professionally, it took him no time to reach out.

We like to say we were “reintroduced” by my mom and set up a dog walk date. It might sound funny but it was really that simple – we knew right away we were going to be together.

We live in a pretty tight community in Newport, RI where everyone knows everyone, especially those who have lived here most their lives, like us. We are both 4th generation “Aquidneck Islanders,” and both of us have large social families, so planning a wedding was a bit of an adventure! Staying local was a priority for both of us and we were lucky to be able to use my aunt and uncle’s gorgeous sprawling lawn off a country road near the beach. We wanted to throw a beautiful outdoor bash and include as many friends and family as we possibly could.

Our menu was seasonally farm-to-table and the circus tents, tea lights, wine barrels and heavy rustic tables were a perfect fit for the country, natural feel we were going for. We’re a goofy bunch, so we made an effort to keep the atmosphere laid back and fun, but also grown up and sentimental. Friends and family all helped out with hand painted signs or bailing hay, even making the cake – and EVERYONE was on the dance floor! It all came together beautifully and the celebration went well into the wee hours.

I’ve dreamt of  my wedding day since childhood and can honestly say it was hands down the happiest day of my life! I got to marry my best friend surrounded by loved ones at a place we call home… It doesn’t get any better than that.

Traditionally Elegant Newport Wedding

Their morning coffee was made monumental when this Groom got down on one knee, and with family and friends in attendance the wedding that followed was marvelous. Details With Love was behind the wildly elegant day filling tables with Stoneblossom Floral & Event Design blooms, while Steve DePino snapped up every sweet moment right here!

From Steve DePino… Kurt and Alex met on February 27, 2010 at Elizabeth in SoHo (now called The Musket Room). Kurt was attending his roommate’s going away party and Alex was there for a former co-worker’s half-marathon fundraiser. In the whirlwind of people that night, they somehow started talking and realized that not only did they work in the same industry, but also knew several people in common. The time flew by and suddenly it was time to leave their respective parties. While Kurt tried to convince Alex to leave her friends and join his party for the rest of the evening, she declined and he settled for her phone number instead. The following Monday, Alex received a text from Kurt asking her to meet up for a drink later that Wednesday. Alex wanted to accept the invitation, but was embarrassed that she couldn’t even recall his name, only pieces of their conversation. Alex decided that if she could figure out a way to properly internet stalk Kurt on Facebook, then she would accept the date. After scanning through nearly 600 Facebook friends of one of the friends they had discovered they had in common Alex spotted Kurt’s smile and decided that, now that she knew his name, she would go out with him. Alex arrived 15 minutes late (per usual) for their date that Wednesday at Cibar in Gramercy Park and Kurt already had a drink waiting for her (smart man!). The chemistry was immediate as the conversation, jokes and banter flowed very naturally. The night ended with Kurt and Alex’s first kiss and the start to one of their very first inside jokes.

Alex and Kurt knew that they would get married very early in their relationship, but wanted to wait until the moment was right to get engaged. Alex had always told Kurt that she wanted to be surprised when he popped the question, although at the same time she was getting a little anxious about when he would finally ask. With her radar on, Alex was pretty sure there was no way she would be surprised but alas Kurt found the one time, when all her guard was down, to ask her to be his wife. It was a typical Sunday morning; Kurt ran out to get their morning coffee at Le Pain Quotidian while Alex watched Fareed Zakaria GPS. When Kurt came back with the coffee he cracked a few jokes and before she knew it Kurt had put a ring on her finger. (Alex likes to remind Kurt that he didn’t actually ask, and her father says the same thing about when Kurt asked him for Alex’s hand!). Together they called all of their friends and family and went to ABC Cocina to celebrate.

Some of our favorite moments of the wedding were when Kurt’s dad threw Alex’s dad a box of tissues mid-speech because it showed how well our families get along and how we all share the same fun-loving sense of humor.

Alex smiling and giggling the whole way down the aisle because she was so excited to marry Kurt and because she was so happy to have all the most important people in our lives there to celebrate this wonderful occasion with them. It was really nice that almost everyone in attendance really knew both of us as individuals and as a couple.

Looking around and seeing all of their wonderful family and friends out on the dance floor having a ball including the Bride’s 92 year-old great Aunt (Alex’s paternal grandmother’s sister)! Alex’s paternal grandparents are no longer with us, but she is certain that the wedding was a party they would have loved and that they were toasting us with martinis from heaven. Looking around at how beautiful Champ Soleil looked. It is such a special place and we are eternally grateful to Alex’s uncles Kenny & Josh for offering their home to us for the occasion.

Welcoming Alex’s dad into the “sleeveless tuxedo club” despite the objections of some in attendance.
