Newport Wedding Photography with Modern Decor and Details at Belle Mer

October 11, 2012

We always love having the opportunity to capture a wedding in Newport, Rhode Island, and the Belle Mer is one of our favorite Newport venues. Located on a small island right off the coast of the mainland, it offers a spectacular seaside view and plenty of unique spaces for all aspects of a wedding day.

The modern and Miami Chic venue allows for a lot of creativity when bringing in lights, flowers, colors and decor. The couple chose a palette of pink, purple, white and silver for their wedding reception, with soft uplighting giving a colorful romantic feel. The tables were topped with a mixture of white and pink submerged flowers and towering white arrangements adorned with hanging crystals. Floating white candles in crystal holders were scattered around the room, and small pink candles added pops of color.

We loved the style and decor of this wedding and are excited to have been able to photograph it for the happy newlyweds! Congratulations!

For this particular wedding, the weather was perfect for an outdoor ceremony on the Belle Mer’s lawn. White and pink rose petals covered the aisle in lieu of a traditional runner, and the ceremony was set up directly overlooking the bay.

The gorgeous place card table wowed guests at the entrance with a large floral arrangement filled with white (and a touch of pink) orchids that hung from the branches along with strings of crystals.

Each cupcake on the tower was wrapped in silver and decorated with pink flowers inspired by the floral arrangements. To top that off, a scattering of edible disco dust for that extra shimmer was added to the cupcakes.
