Bliss Celebrations Guide

A Newport Wedding Experience – Styled Shoot

The Rhode Island Wedding Group is a network of event professionals, photographers, and venues. The goal of this styled shoot was to showcase wedding trends and diverse venue options that exist in Newport, RI.  Nicole Gesmondi, a talented photographer and member of the RIWG, tells us more about the shoot…

We included three venues in this shoot – Newport Wedding Trolley expertly got us where we needed to be! By offering a venue option for getting ready/first look, ceremony, and reception, we were able to incorporate venues that really represent the diverse possibilities of a Newport wedding. Resort: Gurney’s; Beach: Rotunda at Easton’s; Historical: Tennis Hall of Fame.

Consistent with our diverse venues, the entire look of the shoot was a mix of fun and elegance. Gorgeous gowns and gilded details mixed with colorful corals and deep hues, reflective of Newport’s summer season and long history. What was once America’s summer playground for the elite is now a summer retreat for couples looking to entertain guests and offer them a bit of everything. From lawn games to spa days – the RIWG in Newport has got you covered!
