Is there anything more perfect than this fairytale wedding?
From start to finish, Cora had a vision of a magical day with all the details. We begin with a Emmanuel Church of Newport, a church established in 1902 is an early example of the beauty that Newport holds to this day. The churches beauty is one of it's own, and thus we recommended letting he space speak for itself. With two larger focal arrangements for the top of the isle, in whites, blush pink and natural blues, we've seamlessly brought the space together to focus the moment on our bride and groom.
Cora's Bridal bouquet is a creation of her own. It features "sweet lady" roses" ( a garden variety) with a touch of blush roses. A subtle blue delphinium flower poles through between tiny, spray roses and white hydrangea. She chose a delicate base of mixed eucalyptus, including the seeded variety, to give a garden feel. It is wrapped in a stark white satin ribbon.
Her bridesmaids are wearing a dusty rose color and their bouquets are complimentary with smaller editions of her own bouquet. You'll find the cutest junior bridesmaid and ringbearer as well, holding a pint sized hand held bouquet or matching boutonnière. The men are all donned similar designs, with white spray roses, gumdrop eucalyptus, willow (or feather eucalyptus) and the baby blue variety also.
We follow the ceremony to the exclusive Rosecliff Mansion, one of Americas most historic buildings, for our reception. It is known for its history in the Gilded Age, and has seamlessly kept it's history of lavish and spectacular events. Cora chose a hardy mix of tall overhead arrangements atop gold candelabras, compact tables with hydrangea, blush roses and blue delphinium among garden greens paired with stemmed glass, floating candle holders. The large Tuscan style head table features a magnificent floor-to-floor multidimensional piece that complimented both the room and the adjacent guest tables. We coupled this with additional gold candelabras to add dimension and lift to the room.
It goes without saying that this is what dreams are made of.
