Wedding Photographers at Belle MerMany brides and grooms spend a lot of time thinking about the decor for the wedding reception, working with their vendors to make their visions come to life. At this 2013 Newport, Rhode Island wedding the couple did an extraordinary job of decorating their reception space to enhance the modern, crisp feel of their venue. I had been impressed the night before by their wedding rehearsal dinner at Newport’s Castle Hill Inn and the same attention to detail was applied to their Vanderbilt Grace and Belle Mer wedding day. Every vendor was chosen with care, from videographer Brett Culp to the band, District 21. The bride wore Lazaro. Her hair and makeup were completed to perfection by Larissa Lake and team. Everything had gone smoothly all day long so it was no surprise that cocktail hour and the reception details were also sheer perfection. Cocktail hour was held in Belle Mer’s Water Salon, and the wedding reception was in the Lawn House. The details of the day were so sweet that the wedding was featured on Love Olio and was also featured in the print version of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style magazine. It is always such a lovely honor to have my wedding photography featured but while such publications are wonderful, it is satisfying my clients that is the biggest honor of all.
