Real Wedding Wednesday ~ Stunning in Newport

So, every now and then, I like to surprise you, brideys. And today, you are in for a special treat! You are about to indulge in an absolutely stunning wedding. But, oddly enough the bride and groom are not part of this feature. You will only see the details. Sounds completely shady, doesn't it? It's really not, I promise you, but out of respect for the bride and groom, who have asked to be kept out of the photographs, you won't see them today. But, in this case? It doesn't really matter... The photographs will speak for themselves even without the B+G.

This wedding certainly looks to good to be true, but it IS NOT A STYLED SHOOT! IT IS A REAL WEDDING! And I know that it looks so fucking perfect that it looks like a styled shoot due to the perfect placement of pretty much everything, but I can assure you, it's not. So, feast your eyes, and steal some ideas from this masterpiece!

Exquisite dress. Just a breathtaking Vera Wang. Right? (And let's be honest, who doesn't want a picture of a horse in the background?)

How amazing to have the ceremony looking out on the water with a gorgeous ombre, flower petal aisle?

Following the ceremony, cocktails and passed hors d'oeuvres look out on the ocean.

Um, yeah. Astoundingly modern, amazingly cool, and miraculously fantastic.

Are you completely dying over these arrangements? I'm DY ING! OMG those orchids are so beautiful, and the "diamonds" gracing the bottom of candles? Priceless. Gorgeous. Awe-inspiring photographs...

Ghost chairs, whimsically elegant linen, mixed with contemporary furniture? FLAWLESS.

Again, brideys, this is not a styled shoot. Just a group of amazingly talented vendors working with a bride who had an incredible vision and knew how to communicate what she wanted. 

You know that typically... I am not a fan of cupcakes at a wedding, but these? Yeah, these are DEFINITELY the exception to my rule.

Tuna tartar? Lobster roll anybody?

Again, this is a perfect example of how lighting can absolutely change the entire feel of a space. Well, that coupled with gorgeous linen and décor. 

There are no words. Look down! Um... Do you SEE that the table number is on a fucking crystal? Amazing. Just amazing!!

Still looks amazing after all of the guests are finished with dinner. 

Belle Mer is a beautiful venue both inside and out. And when you have cool ass space mixed with the right vendors? PRICELESS.
