Newport, Rhode Island is the most beautiful place to have a wedding…especially when it’s at the Ocean Cliff Hotel! Indian weddings don’t come my way often, but when they do, I can’t help but fall in love all over again with the traditions, the elegance, the saris and the sarongs, the culture…..It’s just truly magical!
I am so thankful for Ambiance Luxe Wedding Designs for introducing me to Deepti and Sunil because they were not only so sweet and so much fun to work with but they trusted in me and my team to make their vision come true and gave us tons of creative freedom.
While writing this post, the memories came flooding back; leaving the shop at 4:00am with a convoy of trucks; watching the sunrise over the Newport bridge. The anticipation of seeing the Ocean Cliff, the water and seeing Deepti dressed and beautified was overwhelming. She was stunning!!!!!!…. but I have to say that Sunil was probably the most handsome groom I had ever seen! (besides my hubby, of course) And the weather….for October it was heaven sent for a waterside wedding…everything was just perfect!!!!
So, I will now just let the photos taken by Dennis from Binary Flips speak for themselves…..
Nicha and Jeff’s wedding was so romantic, I fell in love with the Gazebo decor…simple cymbidium orchids hanging from all sides, surrounding them as if it were raining orchids….so dreamy!
They added lots of seashore details, which was perfect for The Water’s Edge, being located right on the water.
Nicha LOVES orchids, so they were EVERYWHERE! Vanda Orchids speckled her bouquet as the Bridesmaids had accents of Dendrobrium orchids. Cymbidium orchids hung from the gazebo and Purple Mokara orchids adorned the ceremony chairs and Dendrobriums for the centerpieces.
I have to give myself a pat on the back for a second…..Did you know that there are umpteen different types AND shades of purple orchids??? Well, fortunately, I do! Some have pink undertones, some have blue undertones….This is why it is so important for floral designers to get swatches!!! Purple can be 8 thousand different shades. So when I saw the swatch of the sash for the Bridesmaids dresses, I knew exactly which purple orchids I wanted and went searching for them…it was rough, but I found them! It pays off to have the same undertone as the dress…which in the case was a blue undertone. Those dresses looked like they were made for those bouquets! Don’t let me get started on the color green….there are more shades of green than I car for…but again, I did my magic and everything looked fantastic!
Thank you….enough about me….How about these photos? How dreamy are they???
Victoria Souza and her husband, Erik, were so friendly and wonderful, as always! Their photos really captured their love and special moments throughout the day. And also caught Mine and Nicha’s little surprise lining the ceremony aisle….can you see what hides between the rose petals?????
