BLISS Bash 2016

BLISS Bash 2016 was the much anticipated launch of our 2016 issue of BLISS Celebrations Guide. This is our favorite night of the year because it gives us the opportunity to network with all the amazingly talented professionals that grace the pages of the magazine. This year we were hosted by the New Bedford Whaling Museum in their brand new event space and their in-house catering team, Russell Morin Catering & Events. As always it was a fun (and delicious!) night for all!

Gala in “Paris”

Boston Lyric Opera kicked off their season with a gala that was nothing short of spectacular.
Lynn Dale, event designer and gala chairperson drew her inspiration from the set design of
Boston Lyric Opera’s new production of La Traviata created by Julia Noulin-Merat, which was
premiering the same night. The night began with a delectable pre-opera dinner catered by The Catered Affair. The room was set to emulate the Parisian Belle Époque or “Beautiful Era” and was exhibited by using period-inspired chinaware placed upon gold framed tables provided by Be Our Guest. The tables were set on stage under the spotlights immersing guests in the theatrical atmosphere. Elegant floral arrangements placed between pillar candles served as centerpieces on each table courtesy of Winston Flowers. After dinner guests were taken across the street to the premiere of the opera. The celebration continued after the premiere as guests made their way back to attend the sparkling Gala After-Party and mingled with the cast.

Vendor Spotlight On… Newport Vineyards

Name: Newport Vineyards

Location: Middletown, RI

What’s the history behind Newport Vineyards? There is so much history! It dates back to 1917, when the great-grandfather of our owners (John and Paul Nunes) purchased the land that is Nunes Farm and is now protected farmland housing 30 acres of our nearly 60 acres of vineyards. Newport Vineyards was incorporated in 1995 by John and Paul Nunes, on the heels of part of the original vineyard, which was planted by retired Navy Captain Richard Alexander. Now in its 20th anniversary year, the Nunes brothers have completed a two-year multi-million dollar renovation and expansion elevating Newport Vineyards to a true food, beverage and events destination in Newport County.

Can you give a few details about the new wedding space? Our new wedding venue, The Meadow Room (pictured above), is truly unique. Couples enjoy the beautiful backdrop of vines, coupled with a romantic refined rustic décor. The walls are adorned with reclaimed New England barn wood, paired with polished concrete floors, wood beams, barn wood doors, a glass door overhead that spills out onto a covered porch overlooking the vineyard. In addition, our winery’s bottling room and Tank Room can be seen by guests through a glass wall, so the winery is always incorporated into the aesthetic of the space.

What makes the vineyard a special place for couples to get married? We are fortunate enough to have the perfect marriage of a beautiful setting, along with easy access to downtown Newport, Providence, and Boston. We are also one of the few vineyards in the region that offer indoor venue facilities.

When’s the best time of the year to book the vineyard for a wedding? We have the ability to offer weddings year round. In fact, we have several winter weddings coming up this year—a snowy vineyard makes a beautiful backdrop! Certainly May – October is a perfect time of year to get married in the Newport County region. Specifically for a vineyard, it’s good to keep in mind the growing season. The vines will begin to bud in May, are full bloom mid-summer, and then our harvest season begins early October. The Meadow Room is perfect in the warmer seasons with the large glass overhead door open, creating a beautiful indoor/outdoor flow. However, it’s so cozy with its reclaimed barn wood walls in the off-season.

How many wedding receptions has the new space already accommodated? This is the first year in our new space, as the Meadow Room opened in early June this year. We began opening it up for booking last October, and have 10 weddings booked this year. For 2016, we already have over 20 weddings booked. While we do expect this to grow, we look to book only one wedding per day.
