High school sweethearts Danielle and Joey tied the knot in Newport last fall at St. Joseph’s Church and celebrated with a reception at Castle Hill Inn. Danielle lovingly obsessed over every little detail and the result is a beautiful wedding overflowing with beautiful handmade signage and design element that meant something to the couple. In case the couple hadn’t covered every special detail including having the bride’s parents wedding band play at cocktail hour, the Father of the Bride pulled out the best surprise of the night with a firework show as the granted exit!
Let’s talk about the thing no one wants to mention… sometimes weddings have to be pushed back. Whether due to family issues, weather, or in the case of recent circumstances, a worldwide pandemic. Whatever the reason, the protocol is the same and we’re here to walk you through it!

Check back each month for a new chapter of their wedding diary!
Liz and Riley started their wedding day together with a secluded first look along the vines at Newport Vineyards. Their sunset ceremony set the tone for their romantic candlelit reception that was draped in seemingly endless greenery. The light pink of the bridesmaid dresses perfectly combined with the rich tones of the reception florals for a season-less feel that would be perfect year-round!
There’s nothing more romantic than the grace and beauty of a ballerina on her wedding day! The grace, beauty, and charisma of ballet dancers inspired this styled shoot. The color palette was pale blush and mint with LOTS of sparkles!
It’s time to introduce our second Couple of the Year! Last year we followed Jacqueline and Jared as they planned their Blithewold Mansion and Gardens wedding and this year we are so pleased to introduce you our readers to our 2020 Couple of the Year Brianna & Nick!
Often wedding decor is themed around the season. Fall weddings have rich warm tones and summer weddings soft cool ones. This styled shoot breaks all that in a season-less shoot that incorporates both deep reds and cool blues for a look that’s attractive year-round.
The thing about wedding vendors is they’re always creating someone else’s vision. Once in a while a team of vendors comes together for a vision they are passionate about and creates something beautiful!
Ludwig Photography captured a beautiful lace inspired styled shoot designed by Exquisite Events and hosted by one of Newport’s new and SO popular venues, Queen Anne’s Loft. Toni Chandler Flowers created beautiful fresh floral arrangements and the beautiful model from Maggie Inc was beautified by TCBNiceHair and Jessica Damore Makeup, and adorned by Bridal Finery.
Stacy and Jason’s romantic seaside nuptials were a dream come true to capture! The couple was married at the majestic Castle Hill Inn in Newport, Rhode Island surrounded by their family and friends. Every detail was thoughtful and elegant, especially their wedding cake design which included edible sugar orchids! If you’ve ever wondered about how much a tent can be dressed up… wonder no longer! This luxurious tent wedding is pure beauty!
