Venue Spotlight | Oceancliff

The Venue Spotlight Series

 

Over the past few years we’ve photographed a lot of wedding venues. Like, a lot of venues. We thought that we’d bring something a little different to the blog to highlight some of these wonderful spaces. In the coming months, we’ll feature some helpful information and beautiful photos and videos of wedding venues around Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut that you are going to absolutely love. So, without further ado, here’s the first edition of our venue spotlight series!

 

OceanCliff

 

OceanCliff is the quintessential Newport wedding venue. Why? It’s that gorgeous ocean view, of course! The sweeping views of Narragansett bay and the Newport Bridge bring people from all around New England to visit and get married here. There’s just so much to love – the wedding arbor that overlooks the bay, the artfully manicured grounds, the historic buildings. We could go on for paragraphs about OceanCliff weddings. But, the best thing by far, though, is the staff. From the amazing, knowledgable sales managers to the banquet captains and servers, we’ve never had anything but great experiences at OceanCliff.

 

OceanCliff has great options for ceremonies on site – both indoor and outdoor. If you prefer a church ceremony, though, Newport has a number of beautiful, historic church within close driving distance.The area surrounding OceanCliff is awesome too. The property is close to the Fort Adams, Brenton Point, and the Castle Hill Lighthouse. On top of all that, The Newport Experience was some really cool options to add to your wedding experience. Want to go for a sunset sail on your wedding day? They have the Schooner Aurora.

 

We could go on, but we’ll let the photos and videos speak for themselves. Be sure to check out the aerial video and wedding highlights below! Want to see even more photos from real weddings? Check out a few of our OceanCliff weddings here:

Emily and David | Castle Hill Inn Elopement

 

We hope you all had an amazing weekend! Before jumping into your work week, take a look back with us to Emily and David’s Castle Hill Inn Elopement! Matt joined the happy couple for their very special day to photography every sweet moment.

 

It was fun to be apart of such an intimate wedding! For some people, their wedding day is all about hustle and bustle and an extravagant party. But for others, all they need is their special someone. Emily and David stood at the edge of Castle Hill Inn where they exchanged loving vows to each other as the ocean waves crashed behind them. Not only did Matt serve as their photographer for the day, but he also served as the witness to sign their wedding license! Yet another awesome first for the Blueflash team! After the ceremony ended, we strolled around the beautiful sights that these Newport grounds had to offer!

 

Thanks for letting us be apart of your day! Best of luck Emily and David! Be sure to check out a glimpse of their wedding below!

Happy Friday, everyone! Before you get your jump start on your weekend, take a look back with us to Dania and Chris’s wedding at OceanCliff! Matt and Emily photographed the happy couple on their big day.

 

Ali Lomazzo Beauty spent the morning with the bridal squad helping them with their hair and makeup needs! After the last bobby pin was placed and the final stroke of mascara was applied, the girls helped Dania step into her wedding gown! Dania wore a dress from Alexandra’s Bridal Boutique and she looked absolutely radiant! Now that our ladies all looked ravishing, Dania set off to OceanCliff to surprise her man with a first look. When Chris turned around and saw his glowing bride, he was utterly speechless! We strolled the grounds for a bit to take a few pictures with the beautiful landscape that the venue offers, but time was ticking away and it was almost time for the ceremony…

 

With family and friends finding their seats, the bridal party took their places for the wedding to begin! Alan Chianese officiated the ceremony as Dania and Chris became man and wife in front of all of their loved ones. After sealing their intimate vows with a kiss, the newly weds led their guests over to the cocktail hour before a lovely reception. With the incredible floral arrangements spread throughout the room, Christine Kuzman Floral Designs transformed the venue into a wonderland! After the new Mr. and Mrs. made their grand entrance, everyone was ready to dive into the feast that OceanCliff provided. With just enough room for some tasty sweets, we all indulged in the delectable desserts that Queen B’s Cakery made! With not a crumb left, everyone set off for the dance floor where Those Guys Newport played the perfect music for everyone to dance the night away!

Happy Wedding Wednesday, ladies and gentlemen! We’re so happy we were able to take part of this memorable day, so lets take a look back at Kasey and James’ charming Chamberlain Farm Wedding. Nate and Cal provided cinematography on the big day!

 

Kasey woke up on a beautiful September day with the biggest grin on her face. She knew it was now only a matter of hours before she got to walk down the aisle to the love of her life, James! Kasey spent the morning getting primped and pampered with her best girls all around her.

The bride stepped into her gorgeous David Tutera for Mon Cheri wedding gown and looked absolutely flawless! Our bridesmaids looked gorgeous and our bride was officially radiant, now it was time for Kasey and the girls to head over to Chamberlain Farms to get married!

 

With the help of a family friend, the floral arrangements transformed the venue into a dreamscape. Everything looked dazzling! As all the friends and family members choose their seats, the bridal party took their places. James stood at the alter positively beaming as his radiant bride walked down the aisle. The two love birds exchanged beautiful vows and sealed them with a kiss. Now that our bride and groom were officially Mr. and Mrs., it was time to celebrate! Chamberlain Farm provided a delicious array of food that quenched the appetite of everyone in company.

The Wedding Day

 

Amy started out her dream day doing her hair and makeup surrounded by her favorite ladies! Once every hair was tucked into place and the last bit of blush was applied, Amy was ready to put on her wedding dress. Amy wore an absolutely stunning Stella York wedding gown from Party Dress Express. Now that hair and makeup was done and the wedding dress was laced up, Amy stepped into the perfect pair of heels and was off to go surprise Tim with a first look! Where’s the best place to surprise your future husband with a first look just before the wedding? Right along the ocean waves of course! Fort Adams made for the perfect first look setting. Amy strolled down a path that led to Tim, who wore the biggest smile as he saw his glowing bride. After exchanging a few loving sentiments, we strolled along the oceanside to snap a few pictures.

 

Now that everyone was dressed, ready, and surprised, it was time to get married! All of Amy and Tim’s closest friends and family members filled in the pews at Kay Chapel at Hotel Viking for the ceremony! The happy couple recited beautiful vows followed by a kiss to make everything official. Our bride and groom were now husband and wife and it was time to celebrate! Amy and Tim led their guests over to the reception area where Hotel Viking supplied a delicious feast! Everyone enjoyed the delicious desserts provided by French Confection, then headed off to the dance floor with Brian LeDac from Murray Hill Talent!
