I just returned from Briana & James’ wedding at Channing Memorial Church and the Eisenhower House! Briana took all my recommendations for hair and makeup. Planning a wedding from California is quite the project! True New England weather today…we went from 85 with not a cloud in the sky all day, and then around 5PM, this crazy thick fog rolled in! It’s ok though because Briana loves stormy weather, soft light and moody black and white pictures!!
Hotel: Pearls Boutique Hotel
-Pearls specializes in suites for brides. The rooms are amazing with a real historic Newport feel, great wallpaper everywhere, cute gardens, gorgeous furniture. It’s really the perfect setting for bridal prep photos!! So ladies, if you are still searching for a hotel, this is your spot!)
Hair: Fine Line Salon. 557 Thames Street, 401.848.0033
-Emily at Fine Line did Briana’s hair. I love Emily, because when I go to her for cut, she gets me in and out in like 25 minutes.
Makeup: Cosmetic Cosmos
-Best. Makeup. Ever! They do such an awesome job! They have their own parking lot behind the store, too, so you don’t have to worry about parking on Thames Street.
Florals: Broadway Florist
-Briana and her girls had these great roses, orchids and irises. Gorgeous.
Church: Channing Memorial Unitarian Church
-Channing is right off Bellevue Avenue and is a beautiful, historic church.
Disc Jockey: Atlantic DJ
-DJ Murph and his guys are awesome. Classy DJ service and they keep your guests dancing, but in a laid back way.
Caterer: Fine Catering By Russell Morin
-What can I say about Morins? Ashley is awesome! She is on top of everything and is so sweet! I always look forward to dinner when I know it’s Morins.
Reception: The Eisenhower House
-The perfect setting for an outdoor Newport wedding.
(I don’t know how I remember all the vendor info! It must have been all those games of Memory as a kid)
THANK YOU for having me!!!!!
