Secret garden elegance meets refined vintage glamour for this styled shoot tucked away at The Chanler on the Newport Cliff Walk.
Rich with history, The Chanler embodies old world elegance with its opulent architecture and gilded décor. The back lawn with its vast ocean views was the perfect canvas for an elegant, garden-like display of floral extravagance. Forgoing the traditional rectangular trellis, Sayles Livingston and her team at Sayles Livingston Design covered a circular trellis in peonies, ranunculus, garden roses, sweet peas, hydrangea, lemon leaf, eucalyptus, and ferns creating a romantic setting for the ceremony site that overlooked the ocean. The soft, neutral palette allowed Beth Chapman of the White Dress by the Shore to style the bridal party in rich, jewel tones and sumptuous textures like fur a gold embossed bridal gown as a nod to the autumn season. The entrance to the back trellis was draped with stormy-gray linens laced with greenery evoking a secret garden-like vibe as you walked up the steps. Crystal chandeliers floated above a traditional wooden table that was draped with a shadow gray velvet runner topped with lush flora that cascaded down to the stone patio creating a look of effortless luxury.
