Stephanie and Shaun were married at Castle Hill Inn in Newport, R.I. on July 12. The bride looked lovely in an A-line, v-neck gown accented with a crystal belt. She wore her hair in a curly updo and carried a bouquet of white roses and peonies. Her ‘maids donned short blush chiffon gowns and white orchid leis. The groom and his men looked dapper in dark three-piece suits and wore maile leis as a nod the bride’s mother’s Hawaiian heritage. Stephanie and Shaun tied the knot overlooking the Atlantic Ocean under a stone arbor adorned with flowers. “The weather on our wedding day was perfect! It was sunny with clear skies, and a light sea-breeze,” Stephanie said. “We had a gorgeous sunset that evening!” After the couple recessed down the petal-strewn aisle they enjoyed signature mint and raspberry signature cocktails around tables with textured blush linens. A reception followed under a white draped tent with chandeliers and string lights. “I have always loved the Great Gatsby, roaring ’20s glamour and knew I wanted a wedding that captured the romance and elegance of that era,” Stephanie explained. The reception was vintage travel-themed and each table was named after a place that was special to the bride and groom. Each seat was identified with a luggage tag and each table featured a postcard explaining why that particular city was so important to the newlyweds, which were made by the bride’s sister. The guests enjoyed a three-course meal, followed by a three-tier cake adorned with pastel flowers. Stephanie’s tip for engaged couples? “My best advice when planning a wedding is to invest in a GREAT photographer,” she said. See the full board here.

Antonieta and Shawn were married at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, Rhode Island on October 19. “”We wanted our wedding to reflect us as a couple with some urban influences, some country influences, some southern influences, some international influences and some New England influences,” Antonieta said. “We both have roots in North Carolina, I grew up in Ecuador and we have both traveled extensively.” The bride wore a sweetheart chiffon wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with a jeweled sash, while the groom wore a three-piece black suit, accessorized with a bow tie. “My dress was by Lindee Daniel, who is a designer from Los Angeles, that works with natural materials that are sustainably produced and responsibly sourced,” she said. “She gives back part of her profits to youth-at-risk in her area.” Bridesmaids wore long brown halter chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of calla lilies, roses, and berries. Guests were greeted with a basket of shawls to keep warm during the outdoor ceremony. The couple wed before 100 with a hand fast. “It feels very rewarding to make the event your own,” Antonieta said. “Even though it is a lot of work to plan out details, I can´t imagine have done it any other way.” The signature drink? Hot apple cider, of course! Escort cards were shaped like luggage tags and directed them to tables named after cities. Reception tables inside the barn were decorated with red, orange, and yellow napkins, lanterns atop wood slices, and “hot” honey favor jars at each place setting. “Since nearly every guest came in from out of town, we wanted to extend the festivities and have plenty of opportunities to spend time with friends and family,” she said. “We had a relaxed after party at The Dorrance, in downtown Providence, and we went apple picking the next day. We then left for our honeymoon in Bora Bora.” See the full board here.
