An intimate black tie affair exudes European elegance at the Glen Manor House in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.
Delaware natives John and Jen stumbled upon the Glen Manor House while on their hunt for the perfect venue that reminded them of Italy. While they couldn’t orchestrate a destination wedding in Italy, they still wanted to bring that warmth and romance to a destination in the states and Glen Manor had everything they had hoped for. Greenlion Designs transformed the venue into an Italian villa with sprawling greens and wine-hued flora placed on mantles and tables to look as if they had been growing there for years. A five-course dinner prepared by Blackstone Caterers featured traditional Italian fare such as monkfish, roasted rapini, and pappardelle in a forest mushroom cream sauce. “The Glen Manor House provided a perfect backdrop for all of the gorgeous arrangements designed by the uber-talented Kim Lamothe at Greenlion Designs. Blackstone Caterers and Rentals Unlimited worked hand-in-hand to set up and serve a truly atmospheric dinner and it was all captured masterfully by our photographer, Rebecca Arthurs,” Jen raved.
