Belle Mer Wedding by Paper Moss + SNAP! Photography
February 10, 2012
New England

When I think of Newport I think of unpretentious elegance, seaside glamour and classic beauty and this wedding by SNAP! Photography embodies all of those qualities and so much more.  I am in la-la-land over the lavender palette with metallic accents and subtly sophisticated pineapple motif especially in the stationery by Paper Moss.  It is classic with a twist of chic and a dash of modern merriment and, needless to say, I am just smitten.  The full gallery is bursting with even more stunning photography and breathtaking details so click here to see it all!

From the bride... On July 16, 2011, Sarah and Zack were married at Belle Mer's ocean-side lawn with one of the summer's most beautiful sunsets as their backdrop. An event nearly two years in the making, Sarah and Zack's vision of a romantically glamorous and chic evening affair came to life. With the help of an all-star team of vendors, Sarah's love for all things pretty and Zack's love of being near the ocean were blended together perfectly. Sarah and Zack did not need to look far for inspiration; from the start, they knew they wanted to welcome their guests to Newport with a fun-filled weekend they would never forget. Enter the pineapple, a traditional symbol of Newport hospitality that was delicately carried throughout the event, from the invitation suite to the refreshing signature pineapple mojitos. A beautiful blend of white flowers with fresh lavender and crystal accents filled the salon with a modern, elegant atmosphere, making for an evening that Sarah and Zack feel was nothing less than "pineapple perfection."
