There are some weddings that pull me in and hold me there for a while... and this one from Catherine Threlkeld, is one of them. It checks off all the right boxes: classic, playfully elegant, bouquets tied with ribbons à la Sayles Livingston Design... just for starters. And if a dress fit for a princess is on your goals list, you'll surely fall for this Romona Keveza number. But most of all, it's the happiest-ever Bride & Groom who steal the show. When you've scrolled your heart out, hop over to the full gallery for even more!

From Catherine Threlkeld... Jenny and Gary wed on August 25, 2018 in Newport, Rhode Island on the most beautiful and sunny New England day. After visiting Newport regularly for vacation and getaways, the couple recently bought a home in their favorite coastal town. They decided to share their beloved Newport with all of their family and friends by tying the knot at St. Joseph's Parish downtown. Jenny and Gary wanted the beauty of classic Newport in their wedding portraits, so they decided on The Elms Mansion for photos. The Elms is located right on Bellevue Ave, or "Mansion Row" in Newport. The Elms provided the perfect backdrop for Jenny and Gary's large bridal party, with 10 groomsmen and 8 bridesmaids. The guys wore classic black suits from Giblee's, and the bridesmaids wore identical Show Me Your Mumu gowns in Silver Sage. With endless photos opportunities and perfectly hazy sunshine, I focused on the marble fountain and sunken gardens at the back of The Elms massive grounds. The Classic Revival mansion was the perfect backdrop for bridal portraits, with Jenny wearing a classic Romona Keveza Legends gown with delicate lace on the upper bodice. A soft and delicate bouquet from Sayles Livingston Design tied the entire bridal look together. At the reception at Atlantic Resort, 190 guests greeted Jenny and Gary for their first dance song, "Making Me Look Good Again" by Drake White. Opting out of bustling her wedding gown, Jenny changed into a fitted white dress from BHLDN without a train for dancing. TSG Weddings brought their A-game with a wild dance floor that didn't stop until the end of the night.
