Little Compton is a magical little corner of the Ocean State, so when you host a wedding as pretty and as personal as this one captured by Joseph Laurin magic inevitably happens. With florals from the lovely Sayles Livingston Flowers adding to all the heartfelt DIY details, it goes without saying that we have one pretty gallery on our hands

From Colby BlanchetIt started with the plan to build 17 customized farm tables because they were unavailable from rental houses in Rhode Island.

Rochelle and Jeremy have been together for 7 years. For their wedding, they had a 150 people guest list with friends from around the world, Jeremy’s from London & Scotland, and native Rhode Islanders on Rochelle’s side.

The wedding began in a small church, in a small rustic beach town of Little Compton. A favorite summer spot that Rochelle and her family would go to. Rochelle showed JJ Little Compton when they first started dating and he fell in love with it. The reception was held at the Stone House, an intimate venue with a large tent dimly lit overlooking the beautiful blue ocean.

Rochelle, being a native Rhode Islander, wanted to incorporate a lot of RI traditions, from the coffee milk favors to the clambake and chowder appetizers. Rochelle & Jeremy consider themselves foodies so when it came to picking the menu they knew they wanted local organic farm to table!

With Jeremy growing up in England it was important for them to incorporate some of the English traditions. The guests were encouraged to wear fascinaters and beautiful hats. The men were encouraged to wear bow ties and their summer best. English tea sandwiches were served at cocktail hour and English tea in vintage tea cups were served at desert!

Rochelle, her family, and her maid of honor Holly had so much fun being creative and doing a lot of DIY projects, The wedding was very much about bringing the whole family together throughout the wedding process.

The lace runners were made from beautiful French lace Rochelle’s mother had been given from a friend. The gold wooden flower boxes were made by Rochelle’s father, along with the gorgeous farm tables. All of the fun chalkboard signs were designed by a family friend, Chris and are hanging in Rochelle & Jeremy’s house. Rochelle & her mother made all of the place cards and stuck them in vintage forks.

This wedding had a lot of love that went into it and Rochelle & Jeremy both knew they wanted an unforgettable party!

From Details With LoveOn Wednesday, March 7th, a messenger arrived to Lisa’s office with an enormous bouquet of roses and a note that instructed her to go downstairs. Waiting was a car with her dog, Theodore Pickles inside. Theo was wearing a little doggy hoody, and inside the pocket was another note that said Rich couldn’t wait to see her. The car drove them to Union Park, a beautiful, private park near their home in London. She approached to see Rich waiting in the center of the park, down on one knee and holding a ring. She said YES!!!

When I received the call from the London couple for assistance in planning their designation wedding, I couldn’t wait to get to know them better and get started in planning and styling all of the lovely details of their signature coastal chic celebration…and of course for their arrival, to meet them in person and for them to experience and enjoy all that my hometown of Newport has to offer. A very special congratulations to Mr & Mrs! xo

Modern Coastal Newport Wedding

Last summer my hubby and I explored Newport, Rhode Island for first time and haven’t stopped talking about it since. With stunning seaside views that had our jaws dropped, it’s no wonder this couple choose the Belle Mer for their own special day. Greenlion Weddings designed the bloomage, Cmostr snapped the goods, and the full gallery? It’s a modern wedding lover’s paradise.

From the Bride…John and I met in the sixth grade but despite knowing each other for most of our lives, planning a wedding still wasn’t the easiest thing to do. With Newport’s fickle fall weather in the front of our minds we initially couldn’t decide whether to have our ceremony in or outdoors. We were tempted to have it outside by past stories of warm and sunny November weddings at Belle Mer, but in the end wanted our guests to feel comfortable no matter what, so we decided to plan for the less-than-ideal and get married indoors.

I wanted the look and feel of the wedding to be light and very natural despite having an autumn date. The best part of Belle Mer as a venue was that everything was so open and white- almost like a blank canvas where weddings weren’t dictated by the room’s established decor so we really could make our Big Day look the way we wanted it to. I love when things mismatch to the point where they all look harmonious together- from the linens to the centerpieces to the bridesmaids’ dresses and the groomsmen’s boutonnieres, we were able to accomplish rustic, modern, natural and chic all the same time.

Even after all the planning, nothing could prepare us for the most perfect sunset that greeted us following our I do’s. It made for the most perfect backdrop for cocktail hour and completely set the tone for the rest of the night. The rest of a very perfect night.
