I kind of love this bride and groom. Because not only did they come up with the fabulous idea of a Newport destination wedding, they happened to fill it to the brim with the sweetest vintage meets rustic details around. Think burlap, twine and chalkboards, all set against the stunning settings of the Norman Bird Sanctuary and the Pearls Boutique Hotel. Add to all of that lovely some beautiful blooms from Toni Chandler Florals and an entire gallery of pretty from Aubrey Greene Photography and we can chock this up as one pretty amazing Wednesday. See it all here.
From Aubrey Greene Photography…. Kellie and Aubray live in sunny California and were planning a boutique, destination wedding, full of handmade burlap and mason jar details. They were married at one of Newport’s hidden gems, the Paradise Farmhouse at the Norman Bird Sanctuary. Norman Bird Sanctuary is situated on a 300+ acre wildlife refuge and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Often a quick stop for the nature enthusiast but rarely the perfect ceremony location. A special ceremony detail was a plaque that has the exact ceremony coordinates painted on it. It was a gift from Kellie’s father given to them during the ceremony. Their reception was held at Pearls of Newport. The custom, monogrammed pillows in all of the nooks at Pearls Boutique Hotel were my favorite! Family and friends roamed the hotel grounds as music and laughter filled the air. It was a stunning, romantic event!
