Drawing inspiration from their sea-side garden venue, Katie and Tom wanted their wedding day to feel every bit as special as their love story. Their wedding day was just that and more with whimsical touches, romantic vibes, and a classic elegance well suited to the mansion that served as a backdrop for their first dance.
Staying local to where the bride grew up, the couple was married at the historic Trinity Church in Newport, and traveled off Aquidneck Island for their reception at Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum. Surrounded by nature and the ocean, Blithewold offered the couple a private intimate feel for their guests accompanied by an expansive waterfront property with enchanting gardens. Julia Elizabeth Photography and Live Oak Films captured the magic and Sayles Livingston Design worked their magic in creating floral arrangements worthy of the venue’s natural beauty.
