A Turn of the Century Inspired Wedding | OceanCliff Wedding Newport, RI

Melissa & Nate’s intimate OceanCliff wedding was reminiscent of another era. Newport with all its history and culture has a special place in Melissa’s heart. She grew up summering at OceanCliff’s resort and exploring the area with its many historic landmarks. When she was planning her wedding she drew a lot of inspiration from the mansions’ turn of the century look and feel. The florals were fabulously done by Toni Chandler and were made up of soft pinks, incorporating peonies, dahlia’s, ranunculus and astilbe.

We started the day photographing the couple at two of the preservation society’s grandest mansions, The Elms & Rosecliff. One of my favorite touches which added to the “Gatsby” theme was the antique Rolls Royce! It was a great way to capture the essence of the era and it was a fabulous prop. After spending time in the beautiful gardens we went out to the rocks to capture Newport’s famous seascape.

Melissa & Nate were married on the back lawn of OceanCliff by Melissa’s uncle who is near and dear to her. Melissa’s maid of honor was her aunt and best friend while Nate was supported by his two brothers, one of which sang a beautiful song before the vows. After the ceremony everyone enjoyed cocktails on the patio while be serenaded by Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Ella Fitzgerald and the like. The guests were all given a guide book to the preservation society’s great homes when they got to their seat and their signing book was a beautiful coffee table book of the Newport Mansions. {Great Idea!} As the evening wore on the glow of candle light was so dramatic and romantic. Melissa & Nate, Congratulations!!
