Stephanie and Bill-Dragonline Studios

Stephanie and Bill had their wedding at Dragonline Studios in Jamestown, RI. What started out as a horrible rainy day, ended up being a beautiful afternoon for their outdoor ceremony and tented wedding. Stephanie, a jewelry designer, had a clear vision for her wedding day. She has so many personalized pieces that were included into different aspects of their wedding, it definitely was creative and meaningful.  Drgonline Studios is a unique location, where artists gather to work.  The grounds are right on the water and the backyard is spectacular. I know that photographer, Joseph Laurin, captured some amazing shots. The food was absolutely amazing provided by Blue Rocks Catering, and the dance floor was packed all night long by the sounds of the band, Soul Estate, with vocals by American Idol alumni, Erica Van Pelt. Congratulations Stephanie and Bill!

Martha and Gerry-50th Wedding Anniversary-1149 Restaurant

I got to step our of our wedding world and plan such a wonderful anniversary party for Martha and Gerry.  They celebrated this momentous event with 80 of their closest friends and family at the 1149 Restaurant in East Greenwich.  Sherri from Stoneblossoms provided the beautiful floral arrangements, while Art in Ice, provided the ice sculpture.  They had decided on doing a traditional Italian meal  First everyone enjoyed passed hors d'oeuvres, then they had antipasto, Italian Wedding soup , pasta and finally the entree. I do not believe that any guest left hungry that night. Especially with the dessert being cake from Scrumptions and Wandies and Italian cookies from Wandies by Pina.  After dinner, guests rolled out of their chairs and onto the dance floor with Amanda Carr from MBeatable Music. What an amazing celebration to honor a great couple!

Lexi and Brent were married on a beautiful, July afternoon, at the scenic Glen Manor House. The bride and her ladies got ready at Jennie Kay salon.  After the salon, both guys and girls were transported by Viking Tours to Glen Manor house. They had both ceremony and reception on site.  After the ceremony, guests were enjoying the grounds and hors d'oeuvres by Blackstone Catering, while the bridal party took pictures with Carried Rodman.  Once cocktail hour was over guests were awed by the flowers provided by Laurie Marshall and excited for the delicious cake that was done by MILK in NYC. After 3 dress changes and a lot of dancing, the couple were headed out to Newport with their guests. Congratulations Lexi and Brent!

Lauren and Matt-Blithewold Mansion

Lauren and Matt had such a beautiful day for their July wedding. Both the bride and groom got ready at the Renaissance Hotel in Providence and wanted to do a first look at the State House in Providence.  After their first look and some photos at the State House, they were off to Blithewold to continue their photos. The tent at Blithewold was completely transformed by Sayles Livingston and Exquisite Events, it was absolutely stunning. After their ceremony that was officiated by a close friend, they were off to the reception under the tent with outstanding food provided by Blackstone Caterers. The Sugarbabies performed and had everyone on the dance floor the entire evening.  If guests were not on the dance floor, they were hanging out in the lounge area. Scott Zuehlke was the photographer and he took some magnificent photos of this great couple and location. Congrats again to Lauren and Matt!

Bethany and Phil-Hidden Meadow Farm

Bethany and Phil were married at her family's farm in West Greenwich.   I have known Bethany since she was in high school, so to be a part of her special day was such a honor to me. The ceremony was located on the upper portion of the farm where all the ladies were brought over by horse and carriage.   A beautiful ceremony was performed by Robin McDonald of Heart and Soul Ceremonies.  Cocktail hour was outside the tent, and guests enjoyed passed hors d'oeuvres by B & M Catering, and an amazing antipasto that the groom's brother put together.  The reception was located under a large tent and B & M Clambakes provided a wonderful meal, as they always do! Everyone enjoyed their time on the dance floor and taking many photos in the photo booth.  Congratulations to Bethany and Phil.

Kathryn and Nazar-Oceancliff

The theme of Kathryn and Nazar's wedding was travel.  They had a fabulous slide show of all the places they have traveled throughout the world and it was completely amazing so they brought this theme into their wedding. Oceancliff was the venue for their wedding, and although it was a rainy day, they were able to capture some fabulous photos outside on Ocean Drive as well as on the grounds of Oceancliff.  With some great vendors such as Salon KG and GQ and the Lady, everyone completely enjoyed the day and their time in Newport.  Congrats to Kathryn and Nazar!
