Newport weddings never fail to wow. It’s just what they do. It must have something to do with it’s gorgeous vistas and old world charm, but I’m pretty sure its the stylish couples that flock to the beautiful shorelines that truly make it special. Because they bring us weddings like this one at Castle Hill Inn, that’s traditional yet fresh, and all around lovely. And with gorgeous florals from Sayles Livingston Flowers and stunning images from Lindsey Rae Photography - it simply doesn’t get better. See it all here.

… Newport is home to some of the most beautiful ocean views, nostalgic New England charm, and intimate family gatherings. So, when Alexis and Will invited me to capture their Castle Hill Inn wedding I was thrilled! They both confessed how important it was to them both that their wedding not only celebrate their love for one another, but for their families as well. Alexis and Will’s wishes went off with out a hitch! Their day consisted of delicious champagne toasts, trolley rides, cascading flowers, rich colors, family heirlooms and traditions, signature cocktails, amazing-heart-felt speeches, and a dance floor that was never empty.

A Newport wedding like this one captured beautifully by Erin McGinn sits happily on the tippy top of my most favorite things list. Right next to long beach days and a cold glass of bubbly, a wedding like this seaside soiree makes me happier than I probably should admit. Modern and elegant, yet wonderfully casual at the same time – the vendors at the helm of this party created a vision of a day for this gorgeous family, and we get to enjoy every last favorite-worthy moment right here.

From Erin… Stephanie and Brad had their wedding at the lovely and very nautical Regatta Place in Newport, Rhode Island. Their adorable daughter, Olivia, served as the littlest flower girl for the day. Stephanie did a quick change into a shorter dress after the ceremony for a fun and flirty look everyone loved.
From the Bride… We chose to get married in Newport because we have both lived here for so long and rarely get the chance to sit back, relax, and take in all the beauty that surrounds us here everyday. I chose Regatta specifically because it is on the water and just gives off that “casual yet elegant” feel that I love so much and I think describes us well. Did I mention their food is amazing? We went with a nautical theme as I love sharp, bold colors (Navy, Orange, Yellow). Not being the most crafty of people I really depended on my vendors to bring everything to life for me and feel that I chose each one carefully after viewing their web sites and getting recommendations from other people. Semia’s flower arrangements are always big, beautiful & fully in bloom. Jenn Gonzalez is not only a friend but an amazing stylist (and I don’t trust my hair to just anyone). Jennifer Hodge is super talented and if I could hire her to do my makeup everyday I would. Erin McGinn… the only person on the planet that has produced photographs (plural) of Brad and myself that we instantly loved and have proudly displayed in our home. Roy McGill from Sweet Sophistications is the master of treats! He not only did my sister’s wedding at Ocean Cliff several years ago but also made a beautiful cake for my baby shower last year. Rob Ferraz along with the band “Get Lucky” were an easy pick! Get Lucky is one of my favorite local bands and they play at my establishment every month.

I’m what you might call the non-outdoorsy type…the kind of girl who feels a little more at ease with four walls and a roof over my head. But every now and again I like to embrace my inner nature lover and this Rhode Island fete is just the ticket. True Event coordinated every detail to perfection, plus a whole other host of talented LBBers like Hana Floral Design, Ryan Designs, Bella Carta Studio, Sperry Tents and Jennie Fresa who made sure the day went off without a hitch. Loving what you see? There’s a whole lot more from Joshua Behan Photography right here.

From True Event…Leah and Micheal’s wedding was set on the gorgeous grounds of a Leah’s family’s home and was filled with so many personal details. They wanted their big day to feel relaxed and intimate, with a vintage/rustic-chic flair, mixed with eclectic details. The color palette consisted of peaches, blush tones, creams, and yellows, which blended seamlessly with the serenity of the private grounds. The ceremony in the backyard featured a beautifully rustic Birch chuppah and we tied tin buckets filled with flowers to the chairs lining the aisle. After the ceremony, guests were treated to a cocktail reception, complete with a vintage chic lounge and floating candles and gardenias in the pool. The reception featured a gorgeous sail cloth tent where we brought in farmers weave natural linens, ivory hemstitch napkins, gold flatware and gold rimmed glasses and china. Gold frames were used for the table numbers and other miscellaneous signs which blended beautifully with the rustic touches throughout the decor. The entire night was such a joy to be a part of and was captured so wonderfully by Joshua Behan Photography. Congrats to the happy couple, Leah & Micheal!
