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!

This summer seaside Belle Mer wedding came to us by way of the talented Carol Silverston of The Original Touch. In coordination with Jodi Raphael of Jodi Raphael Events, this team brought their A-game for NYC based couple Liz and Nick for their wedding day in Rhode Island.

Liz and Nick took full advantage of the elegant beauty of the Belle Mer — adding glitz and pops of summer color to this already amazing wedding venue. The wedding day started next door at Gurney’s Newport Hotel and Spa where the couple got ready with their wedding party. After the bride and groom had their first look at Belle Mer in front of the ivy wall,  we met up with the wedding party for formals with the stunning ocean backdrop.

As guests arrived at the Belle Mer, they passed through a custom entryway created by Carol, Jodi and their team. The white walkway, drapes, and tall floral arrangements looked out over the Belle Mer Lawn, ocean, and Newport bridge and served as a spot for guests to pose for photos and enjoy the gorgeous views. The wedding ceremony took place on the water, where Liz and Nick said their I do’s under the floral chuppah.

Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails on the lawn before moving into the Belle Mer’s Water Salon for the reception. The modern white space was accentuated with mirror-top tables, shimmering silver linens, and a mix of classic white and colorful pink, red, and purple floral arrangements. Guests packed the dance floor all evening long, and were even treated to a surprise fireworks show out on the waterfront after dinner. For Liz and Nick, what they wanted more than anything was to give their guests a fun and memorable night of celebration, and this beautiful summer Belle Mer wedding certainly delivered.

Special thanks to Carol, Jodi, Tahleen and the rest of their team as well as Ashly and her team at the Belle Mer. And of course a big thank you to Liz and Nick for letting us be a part of your wedding day!

When we asked Chloe and Jeff how the envisioned their dream wedding day, they said they wanted a “nautical, classic New England wedding”. Their Cape Cod summer wedding at Wychmere Beach Club turned out to be all they wanted and more.

The Wychmere Beach Club (part of Longwood Events) is a quintessential Cape Cod wedding venue with a beautiful waterfront, docks full of sailboats, and a sandy stretch of beach. Chloe and Jeff took advantage of all this venue has to offer, starting with the bridal suite where Chloe and her bridesmaids got ready for the day’s events. The bride and groom had their first look on the docks overlooking the harbor, and were soon joined by their bridal party for some formal photos on the waterfront and nearby lawn.

The afternoon wedding ceremony was set up on the upstairs deck overlooking the water. Chloe and Jeff said their “I do”s in front of family and friends underneath a canopy of festoon lights. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails on the deck while we took the new husband and wife out onto the beach for some photos with the gorgeous backdrop. The wedding reception took place in the Wychmere Beach Club’s upstairs Ocean Room. The couple chose classic white linens with accents of navy blue for the traditional nautical theme, which matched perfectly with the Ocean Room’s navy and white carpeting. Each table was topped with white and green florals and elegant white lanterns to complete the classic look.

This Cape Cod wedding was a dream come true for the happy couple, and we had so much fun joining them and their loved ones on this very special day. Special thanks to Heather and her team at the Wychmere Beach Club for a gorgeous event, and to Chloe and Jeff for letting us be a part of it!

It was Destination New England for Midwestern couple Lexi and Ethan, as they had one goal in mind for their wedding: to celebrate ocean-side on the East Coast.

The bride and groom flew all the way from North Dakota to the Wychmere Beach Club on Cape Cod, MA, for their intimate celebration. This couple decided that they wanted to be surrounded by their closest family and friends who also came from across the country, all of them excited to be surrounded by a beautiful ocean view most of them had not seen before. Before the ceremony, everyone was filled with an infectious energy as the bride and her family all got ready on location. Meanwhile, the groom got ready in Chatham, and later joined the bride at the Beach Club.

Following the outdoor ceremony, we were able to spend some time with Lexi and Ethan on the beach before they joined their guests at cocktail hour. Despite the chilly ocean air, the couple were thrilled to be in this serene destination.

Even though the wedding was in April, we all agreed that this beautiful ocean view made us realize the New England summer is just around the corner.

Thank you to this amazing couple who let us join you in your unforgettable destination celebration and to the Longwood Events team at the Wychmere Beach Club for being a joy to work with!

Our friends at Longwood Events are doing good this Spring! Even while they are busy creating and hosting stunning weddings and galas at any one of their five high-end Boston and Rhode Island venues, Longwood Events has still managed to create a brand new non-profit branch of their organization. We were happy to be invited to join as Longwood Events launches Longwood Giving this year!

The goal of Longwood Giving is to help struggling non-profits pump up their fundraising efforts through well-executed events, and eventually allow them to bring in more money for great causes. And who better to help out in such a valiant effort than Longwood Events?

Longwood Giving was launched earlier this month with their “Friends with Benefits” event, held at Longwood’s own State Room Boston, and Person + Killian Photography was delighted to be asked to be the exclusive photographers for the evening!

Longwood Giving partnered with the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association (MLBPAA) for this VIP event, whose highlights included culinary masters from both Boston and Nantucket, actual MLB Players Alumni, and a performance by up-and-coming artist (and recent Grammy winner!) Shea Rose.

Congratulations to Longwood Events for a very successful night, and thank you for letting Person + Killian Photography be a part of it!
