Kristin and Derek’s Belle Mer wedding had all the glitz and glam a girl could want! Kristin envisioned a romantic wedding setting with lots of old hollywood glamour touches and I think she nailed it. The color palette of the day was mostly white but had access of metallics, gold & silver, with touches of pink to soften the tone and add a that romantic touch.

Kristin wore a stunning Monique L’Huillier which featured a lace bodice and had the most fantasticly fluffy bottom I have ever seen. I’m not going to lie, I went a little “ga-ga” when I saw it! She complimented her textured gown with silver Choo’s and a gorgeous orchard bouquet. Her ladies were dressed in antique gold gowns. The bottoms were complimentary to Kristin’s dress. Just perfect! Derek was dapper looking in his white dinner jacket and black bow tie.

The couple tied the knot on the lawn at Belle Mer overlooking the gorgeous view of Narragansett Bay. After the ceremony, it was picture time! We were so lucky the clouds had parted for the time we had by the water. I love the soft glow of sunlight coming through the clouds and reflecting off the water. It was so incredibly dreamy.

Once it was time to move inside for the evening the dancing never stopped. As a surprise to the guests a cigar roller came at the end of the evening. What a great way to end an event! Cheers! Congratulations Kristin & Derek.

Jess and Dan’s Belle Mer wedding was nothing short of classy. I met this couple the day it all began… at the proposal! After Jess had said “yes” in Newport she knew she had to have her wedding here! They chose the quaint Island House at Belle Mer to hold their celebration.

Jess wanted a wedding that felt like a black tie gala but with a lot more fun! Her dress was straight out of the 1940’s Old Hollywood Glam Era. It was just stunning on her. I loved the simplicity and the small embellishments were just enough to make it pop. Dan was also very dapper in his custom black tuxedo with a monogramed shirt and a cute lapel pin.

We were lucky to have a little bit of sunlight to work with during their first look before the clouds and fog rolled in. We had so much fun around the property soaking up as much of the scenery we possibly could. The ceremony was a tear jerker for sure. Close friends and family stood up read letters to the couple giving lots of love and wisdom. Jess’s brother and stepfather played all of the music throughout the ceremony. It was really special!

The color theme for the evening was black and white with hints of gold. The solid black floral bases and the black table cloths were so dramatic and looked stunning in the ballroom. Simple and classic! I loved the adorable little “bow tie” napkins that were placed on all of the tables. The rest of the evening was dancing, dancing, dancing. I don’t think I’ve seen a wedding where there was this much dancing… they really knew how to party.

Jess and Dan, Congratulations!

Carly & Ralph’s Belle Mer wedding was a night to remember! It was a hot sunny July day with a warm but pleasant breeze blowing off the bay – the perfect summer day.

The couple used both of the beautiful spaces of Belle Mer. The Island House is a great getting ready space because it is a large white room flooded with soft natural light. The girls were getting prepared here while the boys were over in the Salon hanging out in one of the upstairs rooms. Once everyone was ready to go we headed out front to the “green wall” to capture the first look. There were lots of smiles and a few small tears. We walked the property taking advantage of both the scenery and the wonderful props the couple had brought in. One of my favorites was the outdoor wall of fabric and chandelier.

The color choice for this wedding was also on point. The bridal party members were dressed in a stunning shade of blue which was gorgeous out in the sunlight against the water but it also complimented the romantic pink and grey palette the ballroom was decorated with.

After photos, the couple went upstairs to sign the Ketubah and to get ready for cocktail hour. In keeping with Jewish tradition the couple opted to have their ceremony after sundown so the cocktail hour came first! The ceremony was held downstairs at the Island House creating a warm, intimate atmosphere. Once they said ” I do” , kissed and broke the glass everyone headed over the Salon for lots of great food, conversation and most of all dancing! The evening ended with the lights going down and the glow sticks being lit up! Congratulations Carly & Ralph!

{Sneak Peek} from this weekend’s Belle Mer Wedding. Rainy days are always a great motivator to get really creative on a wedding day. I love the drapes that surround the ballroom in the water salon. I’m so in love!
