Belle Mer Wedding

A picture perfect elegant fall wedding at Belle Mer wedding venue in Newport, Rhode Island.

From the bride: My husband and I met in Newport when we were still students in college, attending Johnson & Wales University in Providence.

We wanted to get married in Newport, and make it feel full circle to start the rest of forever where it all began.

My husband, Chris & I are a mix between modern and traditional which can get confusing but our vendors nailed it.

Our wedding decor mainly consisted of florals. We wanted flowers to be in every corner, on every table and everywhere you looked.

Our floral was accompanied with a lot of candle light and soft lounge areas to create a warm Fall experience.

My husband, Chris and his father Mario, hand crafted a white cross to be on display during our ceremony.

It was very important to my husband to have that made from scratch instead of purchased, in the hopes to pass it down one day to our future kids if they want it.

Chris and I did not want to do a first look. With this decision, the first time we saw each other was when I was coming down the staircase at Belle Mer and walking down the aisle to him.

We both dreamt of that moment for so long. It was absolutely one of the most special and intense moments of our wedding. Our guests often say they could see the love and intensity right then.
