Outdoor ceremonies are risky! While a beautiful sunset ceremony is a gorgeous thing, couples have to have a rain plan and the fear of the rain can really be a stressful thing.
The couple at this 2013 wedding need not have feared because their Newport, Rhode Island summer wedding day was bright, beautiful, warm, and without a single raindrop to be seen. The ceremony was held on the Belle Mer Ocean Lawn overlooking Narragansett Bay.
I absolutely love that the ceremony was timed so that the sun would be setting over the bay. I love that the ceremony layout was angled so that the sun was in the perfect location. I love the rose petals that had been scattered by Flowers by Semia. I adore the striking drama of the bride’s Lazaro gown.
Goat Island is such a beautiful place for a wedding and the bride and groom did an exquisite job of tailoring their entire wedding day to truly embrace the natural beauty of Newport in the summertime!
