The inspiration was the bride’s love for Newport and New England! The colors were white, blue, and blush pink. The bride wanted blue hydrangeas to be a staple in the arrangements because they remind her of New England.
The inspiration was the bride’s love for Newport and New England! Her parents were married in Newport, RI, and she always hoped to get married there. The theme was “New England nautical.” The color palette was navy, blush pink, and grey. We included wedding pictures of all of our deceased grandparents.
We kept it simple! For the ceremony, we had flowers and rose petals from our amazing florist. We wanted rose petals because the groom’s proposal had involved rose petals spelling out the message “Will you marry me?” My aunts made the bows on the chairs, which was very special to me. For the reception, we had family photos, more flowers from our wonderful florist, and a wedding sign. Not a lot of DIY because we are both too busy!

The ceremony was very personal, due to the bride’s close friend officiating the wedding. For the reception, most of the music was handpicked by us and we had picked out songs to dedicate to special guests ahead of time. One of our favorite parts was the fireworks because they were such a surprise! We also just loved dancing the night away. The bride also enjoyed getting ready with her best friends, sister and mother.
The bride became obsessed with BHLDN after a great experience picking out her wedding dress there. The dress and earrings were both from BHLDN. She wanted to be comfortable with a simple, but stunning dress. She loved the lace bodice and flowing skirt. The groom liked the navy tux with black lapels.
We met online, and fell for each other quickly! He proposed in Islamorada in the Keys of Florida, after the bride graduated from her PhD program. Her parents were decoys and tricked her into heading back to the room to grab them something. Little known to the bride, he had decorated the room with rose petals, flowers, candles, and a photo album of their favorite memories.
Seeing each other for the first time in our fancy looks 🙂
Take breaks from planning! It can take up so much thought and time, and it’s nice to have a night off as a couple to really enjoy each other in the present moment.
