These days we share this awesome seaside ceremony and reception in Newport, RI. Having prepared the bride’s ideal friends’ and company partner’s marriage ceremony a year prior, this 1 was particularly near and dear to us. And, quite a change of scenery for us, considering the fact that the coastal landscape listed here is so distinctive than ours on the Southeast coastline.  The ceremony begins at a non-public home owned by mates of the relatives. Afterwards, the reception follows at the New York Yacht Club. All of the stunning images are by Corbin Gurkin.

As her a little something previous, the bride’s wears her grandmother’s pearl earrings. And, the one thing new is the robe created by the bride, together with her matron of honor and company associate in Dee Hutton/Dee Hutton Bridal.  For one thing borrowed, a diamond bracelet from a ideal friend. And, her sapphire engagement ring is of course “something blue”.


Owning family members from France, our bride required to integrate that through significantly of the design and style. From lavender all through the floral structure, to the Chantilly lace in the bride’s robe, French components make by themselves identified.

In this article, Lettered Olive works by using the coordinated pastel color palette to weave jointly modern and whimsical influences on conventional marriage stationary.  The guest luggage are drawstring bags printed with a hand drawn map of Newport. Also provided are tons of sweets and treats like Swedish fish as a playful nod to the coast. And, NYC black and white cookies are a hometown fave.
