Carissa and Travis-Oceancliff

     Carissa was so much fun to plan with, she was so energetic and full of excitement for her wedding, it made me excited for her big day!  While looking for a venue, I did tell her she would know it when she walked in and Oceancliff took her breath away. Once she had a venue, she may have been one of the fastest brides I have ever had to choose the remaining vendors.  She chose Robin Hollow to do her flowers, and they did such an amazing job.  Nancy Paolino and The Black Tie Band, was the perfect fit for Carissa and Travis's guests and had them on the dance floor all night long.  Chris Martel was a friend of the groom, so Armor and Martel was the photographer for the evening. The biggest surprise for the bride, which I had to keep secret, was the groom purchased an antique car! It was such a great day, great wedding and great people! Congrats to Carissa and Travis!

Madalyn and David-Rosecliff

     Madalyn and David had a gorgeous wedding at Rosecliff, and although the rain fell, we were able to bring the ceremony indoors and make it just as beautiful with the floral that was included. The rehearsal dinner was at Sardella's Italian Restaurant and the guests enjoyed a wonderful family style meal.  The morning of the wedding, we were back and forth with the wedding, but a look at the radar had us move everything inside.  They had outstanding service and food provided by Blackstone Caterers and danced all night long! Congrats again to Madalyn and David!

Jessica and David-Fort Adams State Park

   Jessica was so excited at our first meeting for her wedding, she was so happy to be marrying David at one of the coolest venues around, Fort Adams. She planned on getting ready in the casemates, and had some great ideas! On the day of the wedding, the skies were not as cooperative as we would have liked and ended up doing the ceremony in the casemates due to the pending rain.  After the ceremony was completed, the casemates were transformed for cocktail hour.  The floral arrangements by Sayles Livingston were absolutely stunning.  The catering was provided by Blue Rocks Catering and they did such a fantastic job.   The couple provided lawn games for their guests, and there was so much laughter and fun had by all! Congrats to Jessica and David.

Kathryn and Shane-Caste Hill Inn

     I initially spoke with Kathryn's mom, and once I heard their story, I knew I had to be a part of their big day.  When a family member fell ill, the couple cancelled their destination wedding in Ireland, and decided to have a local wedding and chose Newport.  It would also just be immediate family and a couple of friends. They decided that Castle Hill was the perfect location for all they needed, guests accommodations, ability to enjoy the ocean and also have the ceremony and reception dinner in one location.  The day of their wedding could not have been a more beautiful day. The weather was amazing.  They chose to have their ceremony at the lighthouse and La Bella Musica provided the ceremony music. The ceremony had so many personal moments to it, it was quite emotional  After the beautiful ceremony, the couple headed to photos and enjoyed a beautiful dinner with their closest family and friends. Congratulations to Kathryn and Shane!!

Lauren and Robyn-Belle Mer

I always say, we can control almost anything on the wedding day except Mother Nature.  On Lauren and Robyn's wedding day, she opened up the skies.  While it did foil their plans for outside pre-ceremony photos, it did not damper spirits.  By the time the ceremony was over, the sky cleared over Belle Mer and they were able to get gorgeous shots outside. The personal touches they had were so much fun.  Instead of a traditional guest book, they opted for Jenga pieces, since this was a game that had significance to them.  And at the end of the night, when everyone is on the dance floor, why not surprise them with Ben and Jerry's ice cream sundaes.  This was such a hit with their guests.  The guests also got to enjoy the mirror photobooth, provided by Luke Renchan Entertainment.  Congratulations to Lauren and Robyn!

Amanda and Mike-Acoaxet Club

Amanda and Mike were married at the Westport Free Chapel in Westport, MA.  It was such a quaint location with much history to the small chapel.  After the ceremony, guests headed down the stree for the reception at the Acoaxet Club.  The cocktail hour was held outside on the lawn and it had a beautiful scenic view of the ocean.  The theme that Amanda and Mike went with was party animals, because they wanted their guests to relax and have a good time.  Many of the guests had rented private homes in the area, to be close to the couple for the weekend.  After a wonderful dinner, guests were on the dance floor most of the night. After the reception, they headed to the rented home of Amanda and Mike for more fun and food!  Congrats to Amanda and Mike!
