Your wedding day is something you remember forever. Brides are always looking for the perfect venue, dress, best band, cake etc.  The secret to the perfect wedding is not who you hire but who you are sharing the day with.  This is the day you say I do, and marry the person of your dreams.  The details are the things that make your wedding day a day to remember, a mixture of the two of you, it says who are together.

Creating the Bridal Party

Lexi and Joe’s Newport wedding was a celebration of two families, friends and tradition.   Lexi included her soon to be family in the planning process, working with the mother of the groom to create the bridal party look.  First came the wedding gown shopping, Lexi chose a Vera Wang bridal gown, from Musette Bridal Boutique Boston, and a custom made cathedral veil to complete her look.

Next came the bridal party, Lexi’s bridesmaids chose gowns from Amsale Bridesmaids from L’elite Bridesmaids Boutique Boston, in Dove crepe, that would complement their individual style and silhouette.  The groomsmen wore custom bow ties, created by Musette Atelier, in the matching Dove color and the flower girl dresses were US Angels, from L’elite Bridesmaids Boutique,  with matching custom made Dove sashes.


The Mothers dresses were found at L’elite Occasions Boutique

The Venue

Ocean Cliff Estate Newport Rhode Island  is a  sprawling historic 10 acre ocean front estate.  Ocean Cliff is breathtaking, with its picturesque and perfectly manicured gardens, architectural design and details.  It whisks you away to another time where you can imagine the lavish parties and now perfect venue for Lexi and Joe’s wedding.

There are so many ways you can customize your wedding,  by having signature cocktails, your very own wedding hashtag, personalizing  the menu, selecting foods and desserts that  have cultural meaning, the ideas are endless.  Here are a few that Lexi and Joe chose to help create their memorable day!
