Fall Bridal Inspiration

Remember this spring when we were Dreaming of Summer Weddings? Well as much as we adore summer, we are getting pretty excited for fall weddings. Cooler weather, rich colors, and lots and lots of hot apple cider. Like this styled shoot by our friends at Blush and Dirt shows, fall can be more than just orange and yellows, it can be peach or pink or purple. Push the envelope and make dream a little bigger darling. Fall can be anything you want it to be.

Nantucket Engagement Styled Shoot | The Newport Bride

Kristina and Mike’s Styled Nantucket Engagement Shoot Part 2

This second part of our engagement styled shoot on the beautiful island of Nantucket starts at the stunning 21 Broad and wanders around downtown. For this styled e-sesh we made the most of the beautiful boutique hotel and went for a bit of a lifestyle feel. Our models (yes, they’re actually an adorable engaged couple in real life) arm wrestled, fiddled with the record player, and went for a casual stroll down mainstreet.  Continue reading

A Gilded Elopement – Styled Shoot

For our winter styled shoot we explored Lark Hotel Group‘s Gilded Hotel in Newport. With the perfect combination of old world charm and modern accessories, Gilded is a get away dream come true. For part two of our winter styled shoot we imaged a Newport elopement (for Part one see our Gilded Engagement post). With the models in something a little more formal, we played up the hotels intimate spaces. We started in the billiards room, moved on to the magenta front room, then up two explore two of the suites on the second floor. Every room allowed for a different set of pictures. With so many gorgeous spaces, colors, and wall papers, there’s a room for every mood.

A Gilded Engagement – Styled Shoot

Newport is home to hundreds of gorgeous victorian and gilded homes. The infamous Newport Mansions boast unmatched grandeur, but they aren’t the only ones with beauty and grace. For this winter styled shoot we choose the glamorous Gilded Hotel on Brinley Street in Newport. Part of the Lark Hotel Group, Gilded is one of a handful of gorgeous boutique hotels across the country that perfectly encompasses the best of historical charm and modern elegance. Converting two homes into one boutique hotel, Gilded has all the curious nooks and crannies of a century old home and the modern conveniences of a luxury hotel. It’s perfect! We loved Gilded so much we decided to break the shoot into two segments, one casual engagement shoot and one more formal elopement shoot. Working with the talented Kim from Kim Lyn Photography and Sarah from Blush and Dirt for hair and makeup, we had a first rate group as the pictures are proof.

Playful and Plaid Styled Shoot | The Newport Bride

Playful and Plaid – A Peak at our Fort Adams Styled Shoot

Ever dreamed of tulle and plaid? I have. Our Playful and Plaid winter styled shoot at Fort Admas was everything festive and fun. From the bride’s tulle ball gown skirt and holly berry head wreath to the bridesmaids pinecone bouquets and the grooms newsboy cap. This shoot was all about incorporating Christmas-esq elements without being a strictly Christmas wedding. The plaids and holly berries pulled the theme along while the lack of decorated tree kept you guessing. We can’t wait to show you the rest of the pictures, stay tuned for the full set after the holidays!
