Belle Mer Wedding Photography

The light in the Belle Mer Loft is simply exquisite. Situated right on Narragansett Bay in beautiful Newport, Rhode Island, Belle Mer is a quiet gem of a venue. Owned by Longwood Events, Belle Mer is a bright, luxurious, modern venue on the water in this sweetly charming town. I love the view of the bay from the windows in the loft. I love that the bride was able to look right down on her outdoor wedding ceremony setup on the Ocean Lawn and watch her guests arrive. I also love the dynamic, modern windows juxtaposed against the delicate chandelier. This image was taken just moments before the bride left for her ceremony and I adore the light in her veil. The moments just before a wedding ceremony are so charged with emotion but this particular bride was cool and calm, ready to walk down the aisle and marry her best friend. I hear in wedding vows all the time that the groom is the bride’s "best friend", but in this instance it was clearly true. This bride and groom have such a honest, true friendship that was the backbone of their relationship. It was a joy and an honor to document this day for them, their friends, and their gorgeous family.
