There are two things we love. Christmas, and being by the sea. Thankfully, in Newport everything goes with sea shells and sailboats, even the holidays.
We took our love for all things nautical and the holiday season and combined these two favorites into the silver and gold shoot of our dreams. The centerpieces twinkle with sparkling branches and florals that feel both frozen and fresh. The dresses are chic and effortless, just like the classic Newport style and the bouquet is lush and wild, like the waves. Seaside brides who’ve been dreaming of a Christmas wedding, do it. It’s beautiful, it’s different, and it’s oh so elegant. We always knew that sea shells and christmas trees went together!
Stephanie Vegliante Photography perfectly captured the vision of a nautical Christmas and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Many thanks to Hotel Viking for letting us use their Bellevue Ballroom and Kay Chapel. Michelle Jeanne Floral Design effortlessly blended fresh florals with sea stars and wintery elements. D’Paulo Designs and Linens had the perfect linens and decor items to being the sea-side feel to the table scape. The stunning dresses and gold hanger are from Andria Bird Bride‘s shop in Bowen’s Warf were just what our models needed to feel like royalty. The bride’s dress was designed by Lindee Daniel and the bridesmaid dresses were designed by Donna Morgan. Finishing the look, all our models hair and makeup was done by Blush and Dirt. The beautiful calligraphy was done by Katie Kerrigan Calligraphy. The tasty foil wrapped chocolates were from the Newport Sweet Shoppe and the beautiful cake is from Confectionery Designs. Last but certainly not least, the gorgeous antiques were from Leonard’s Antiques.
