From Christina D’asaro DesignEvery last detail at Cristina and John’s elegant wedding at Belle Mer, in Newport Rhode Island was just perfect, as beautifully captured by the talented Suzanna March Photography.

Custom save the dates set the tone, with a full color photograph of the venue, and a custom monogram. Invitation suites were letterpress printed on a luxurious white cotton paper stock, with grey ink, and included custom designed patterned envelope liners. Day-of paper details included escort cards and signage (including a framed sign honoring the father of the bride, who hand-crafted the incredible farm table!), as well as menus and programs. Cristina even incorporated the custom monogram into the favors – adorable mason jars complete with ingredients & a recipe for homemade cookies! It was such an honor to work with this very special and loving couple on all of the pretty paper pieces for their extraordinary wedding.

Congratulations again, Cristina and John!

Elegant Newport Wedding at Rosecliff Mansion

A Newport mansion wedding is basically a dream come true for me. I can’t think of a more elegant or timeless place to say I do. So when I opened this stunning Rosecliff Mansion wedding beautifully captured by Studio Atticus Photography, I had to catch my breath. With gorgeous florals from Sayles Livingston Flowers and details that will stand the test of time, this gallery is sure to take your breath away too.

From Studio Atticus PhotographyGeneva and John’s wedding was one of the most moving weddings I have ever documented. John’s first wife passed away and left him with their sweet daughter, Kaitlyn. I can only imagine what Kaitlyn experienced due to the sudden absence of her mother. Childhood loss is a baffling and overwhelming experience. On many occasions leading up to the wedding, I thought about Kaitlyn and wondered how she would respond to the impending celebration.

Throughout the course of the wedding day, it became apparent to me that Geneva had truly embraced Kaitlyn as her own daughter. She took time out of her own preparations to focus on Kaitlyn’s needs, giving her affection and treating her as a very special part of the morning. During the ceremony, Geneva surprised Kaitlyn with a little ring of her own, and during the reception John and Kaitlyn shared a father daughter dance. At one point in the afternoon while speaking to Kaitlyn, I referred to Geneva by her first name and Kaitlyn immediatly corrected me, saying “No-it’s Mommy”. Clearly Kaitlyn had welcomed Geneva as her mother as well.

Geneva and John also made sure to remember Kaitlyn’s mother on the wedding day. In lieu of favors, a donation was made to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in her honor. The thoughtfulness that had been attended to in order to simultaneously pay loving tribute to one family and also create a beautiful new one nearly brought me to tears numerous times during the event. Life is such a glorious construction of sorrow, joy, creation, and loss, and this jubilant day seemed like a perfect illustration of all of those things.

Blushing Coastal Wedding at Belle Mer

I’m a major fan of Rhode Island and it’s for reasons like this chic affair. A seaside wedding that so embodies the classic beauty of New England along with a healthy dose of prep. It’s a combo that Rhodi does so, so well and with the help of Greenlion Design along with elegance folded into every blushing detail, this gallery captured by Melissa Robotti is where it’s at.

From the Bride… We define our wedding theme as “simple, New York City prep” – the style marriage of two NYC professionals and their New England roots. It was important to us that this nautical elegance also included some more personal experiences, as the typical Newport wedding experience is a story already told. Our photographer, Melissa, took us to the daffodil fields on the Newport Cliffwalk for pictures (as opposed to the standard mansion and ocean shots). This field only blooms for about one week out of the year, so it’s not every day that other brides get these gorgeous shots. As for the reception details, personal touches like pylons were created by the bride’s parents (and of course with the help of our florist) to bring in the nautical feel to each table and carry through the simple elegance. What resulted was a beautiful uniqueness and fabulous day of celebration that we’ll have in our hearts forever!
