Jessica’s dream for her wedding day included a soft color palette, lots of natural light, and a special focus on time spent with friends and family. For the first two, there was no other place but the Belle Mer in Newport, RI. The gorgeous manicured lawns, modern and elegant white interior, and stunning views of the Narragansett Bay make this a one-of-a-kind Newport wedding destination. For the third part of Jessica’s wedding dream, we made sure to set aside a lot of extra time for photos with all of the special people in Jessica and Jason’s lives.

Jess and Jason fully embraced the elegant and chic vibes of the Belle Mer, with a muted palette of soft rose pink, creme, and dark wood. They took full advantage of the gorgeous scenery with lots of photos outside on the grounds and out on the waterfront. We loved being able to use the dramatic ivy wall and Narragansett Bay as backgrounds for photos throughout the entire day. Their late afternoon Newport wedding ceremony was held outside on the Belle Mer lawn, under a floral-accented chuppah.

The celebration moved inside to the Belle Mer Water Salon for the evening reception. The modern contrast of dark floors and white walls accented lots of summer greenery on each table and subtle pops of pink. Jess and Jason laughed and danced the night away surrounded by friends and family. We were even able to get outside one last time as the sun began to set for a few more seaside photos out on the water with the happy newlyweds.

Special thank you to Jess and Jason, Jodi Raphael and Aya Kappel at Jodi Raphael Events, and the Longwood Events team at the Belle Mer for a truly memorable summer Newport wedding!

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.
