Cole and Ashley were secretly set up by a mutual friend. After just a few dates, they were inseparable. After a few years and even a house, Cole proposed, by the bonfire at their new home on a Friday night, to the sounds of Frank Sinatra. Their first dance was “The Best is Yet to Come” by Frank Sinatra, a little flashback to their sweet engagement.
Kristen and Greg met at the University of Connecticut during their Freshman orientation the summer of 2006. They remained in touch over the summer prior and couldn’t wait to get back to campus and see each other. It’s said that everything happens for a reason, and it was there on campus that Kristen and Greg formed a close friendship that eventually lead to their marriage!
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.
Hi! I’m Julianna. The Newport Bride is my brain child and I am so excited to finally share my wedding with you!
I’m that girl that’s been planning my wedding since I was 4. I dreamt of the flowers, bridesmaids, the dress, church, even the music. I’ve been planning my wedding for as long as I can remember and the only thing that could have made the whole process even more exciting was having my best friend and soon-to-be husband along for the ride. With my 12x great-grandfather being one of the founders of Newport and the cities first governor, the city by the sea runs in my blood. As soon as Tyler proposed, I said “YES!” immediately followed by “Wait, you know we have to get married in Newport, right?” There was nothing I wanted more than to marry my favorite person in the world in my favorite place in the world.
Meet one of the most gorgeous low-backed gowns I’ve ever seen. This dress is to die for. The illusion neckline, the sweet lace, the sexy back, the strands of pearls that hang from the shoulders, the hollywood worthy train, I just can’t get over this wedding dress. It’s simply stunning on. Sarah, our beautiful model said she felt like a movie star. Can you blame her?!
Check back later this week for the second look from our styled shoot!
