A gorgeous fall wedding at Glen Manor House wedding venue in Newport, Rhode Island- by Ludwig Photography.
From the bride: Our day was absolutely magical – it was more than we ever could have imagined. Connor is from Connecticut and I am from Ohio – we wanted a destination that was “neutral” to both families, but also a place that was very us. That immediately brought us to Newport.
Our first trip as a couple was to Newport and we immediately fell in love with its romantic charm, its understated nature, and of course the food! We wanted to encompass all these elements that we love so much about Newport in our big day.
The romance was captured in our venue, a mansion that was inspired by a French chateau on the water as well as in my dress, understated nature was in our all white whites, simple navy and golden color palette, and the food was of course shown in our menu!
We served all the seafood you would expect from New England – lobster rolls, mini cups of chowder, clam cakes, and more!
Our flowers were all white with light, sage greenery. Among the white flowers were roses and lilies of the valley – which were very elegant.
What made my bouquet very special was the fact that it was wrapped with a piece of my mom’s veil from her wedding day. Her veil was fashioned with my late grandmother’s angel pin.
My grandmother passed when I was a little girl – I always have felt a special connection and protection from her, so it was important to incorporate her into my big day.
There were many, many special moments. Here are a few of ours:
Leah: The moments before my dad walked me down the aisle. It was just us – I was terrified, he was quiet and calm.
Connor: My most anticipated moment was watching Leah walk down the aisle. I’ve been known to be a crier, and Leah had been looking forward to watching me cry. I thought I might let her down – being to in the moment and focused to cry – but she was right.
