Olde Colonial Winter Romance

Taking a page out of the history books, this styled shoot marries colonial New England winter with a touch of whimsical romance.

Built between 1736 and 1739 the old Newport Colony House has been perfectly preserved to reflect the architectural design elements of that time. The vision of this styled shoot was inspired by the regal, historical events that took place over the years, but adding an element of fun to the mix that Joyce Holland of Stoneblossom best describes as a “the royal order of fun.” The head table was draped with a sumptuous velvet linen in forest green, setting the stage for a faux fur runner in black, beige, and cream hues. Lush flora in deep cranberry, plum, and icy peach hues mingled with pheasant feathers, winter berries, and antiquated gold candelabras, forming a wintery garland that lined the head table. The surrounding farm tables were scattered with fresh pine cones mixed with evergreen branches and a few furry owls for a touch of whimsy. The fashion blurred the lines between old world classic and modern elegance with updated versions of timeless silhouettes.

Calligraphist Sharon Morgera designed an invitation suite that embodied the winter season.

Rich with history, the old courthouse was the perfect ceremony site with its architectural accents and gilded lighting dating back to the early 20th century.

A classic long-sleeved lace gown from A Little Something White is updated with a modern off-the-shoulder neckline evoking stately elegance.

Rich, scarlet blooms pop against a textural bouquet of winter flora.

Light poured through the grand doors of the Colony House casting an ethereal glow on the head table.

Lush color and texture combined to create a wintery table setting reminiscent of old colonial New England.

Furry little owls perched on pine cones infused the tables with wit and wonder.

Winter berries mixed with icy peach blooms filled golden goblets at the head table.

Gilded place settings were topped with plaid linen napkins with aromatic dried orange slices, cinnamon sticks, and a piece of a faux antler.

A velvet jacquard blazer from Aldo’s House of Formals is modern take on a classic silhouette pairing flawlessly with the delicate lace dress. 

Blackstone Caterers captured the flavors of the season in every dish from minced meat pies to creamy soups to herb-roasted chicken.

This seasonal winter cocktail featuring fresh cranberries and cinnamon is best served warm.

The grand staircase offered the ideal backdrop for a cozy lounge area complete with a vintage-inspired settee from Exquisite Events.

A Providence Love Story

With Providence being the city where Kait & Brendan’s love story began it only seemed fitting that their wedding take place at the regal Providence Public Library. “We loved the Grand Hall and the balcony overlooking the Garden Courtyard – it was just perfect for us!” Kait raved. And so began the next chapter of their love story.

A playful, yet elegant twist on the norm Kait had her bridesmaids wear colors that complemented their skin tones resulting in a sophisticated mix of muted autumn hues.

Dinner was served in the gilded Ship Room surrounded by beautifully bounded books.

Literary favorites were topped with mercury glass vessels bursting with lush blooms designed by Flowers By Semia.

A three-tier multi-textured cake topped with fresh figs and grapes was like edible art.

Tucked away behind hundreds of literary classics, Kait & Brendan share a kiss.

Urban Cozy – Real Wedding

The Waterman Grille was the perfect blend of cozy elegance for this urban autumn wedding.

Two walls of floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto the Providence River and parts of the city skyline creating the ideal urban-meets-cozy vibe Grace and Joshua were looking to achieve on their special day. “We love Providence and wanted to make sure it was a big part of our day; from the location to the elegant yet relaxed feel, Waterman Grille was perfect,” Grace reminisced. Grace drew inspiration from a bouquet she fell in love with that was filled with rich, warm autumn hues. Deep greenery mixed with lush cranberry red flora filled the event space as well as Grace’s bouquet. Pops of cream, blush, and even a little bright pink added dimension to the floral display. Hollowed out sugar pumpkins filled with tiny, delicate blooms adorned every table emulating the season. The finishing touch that was deeply personal to Grace; a beautiful wedding cake artfully designed and made by her sister.
