Julia and Peter grew up in the same town, Easton, MA. They were first introduced in May 2014 and since the moment they met, they have spent every day together (but seriously). As is often the case, Newport provided the perfect near by weekend escape for the couple while they were dating and our little city by the sea was their first choice when it came time to choose a wedding venue. Making their wedding a full weekend of events only served to extend the joyous events. From Thursday’s sunset sail and house party, to Friday’s rehearsal dinner at Castle Hill Inn, and Saturday’s sea front nuptials at Belle Mer, the weekend was jam packed of wedding fun!

With her Monique L’Huillier gown with a delicate lace bodice and full trumpet skirt, killer Jimmy Choo – Lana shoes, hair and makeup from Phillip DePalma Salon Hair, and a pure white orchid bouquet from Blooms of Boston, Kristen was a stunning bride from head to toe. Her maids in gold Adrianna Papell gowns set the tone for what was to be a glitz and glam affair. The groom wore a white diner jacket pipped in black and looked oh so dapper. To finish off what looks to be a killer dance party, the couple even brought in Boston Cigar Factory for hand rolled cigars.
High school sweethearts, this couple made it through more than a decade of long distance, going to and graduating from college, and even military service. They returned to their hometown to start their wedded life together. Married in the same church as the bride’s parents and grandparents, the couple chose a private airplane hanger as their wedding venue. Their wedding gifts and cards were placed in the bride’s grandfather’s vintage trunk and the bride wore her grandmothers jewelry. As an extra special detail, the frosting on an already gorgeous cake, the couple took a surprise helicopter ride before their reception and braved freezing rain for some of the most stunning photos we’ve ever seen. Talk about making a grand entrance! Continue reading
