Rawan and Zac | Belle Mer Wedding

Hello everybody! Today we are going to be taking a look back at a super fun wedding! Nate was able to join Rawan and Zac for cinematography at Belle Mer!

 

Rawan spent the morning with her favorite ladies. With her hair and makeup completed, Rawan stepped into her absolutely stunning wedding gown! The crowning glory was the her floral crown, hand-made by the talented bride! With the final touches in place, Rawan met Zac at Brenton Point State Park for a first look. Zac looked out at the crashing waves as his bride snuck up behind him. Zac was overjoyed as he admired his glowing bride. After enjoying a little bit of the ocean air, these two lovebirds were ready to join their guests at the ceremony!

 

With the last of Zac and Rawan’s guests finding their seat at gorgeous Belle Mer, the bridal party took their places and the music began. The couple shared beautiful vows to one another and sealed their love with a kiss! With the ceremony completed, it was time to celebrate! The new Mr. and Mrs. led their guests over to the reception, beautifully decorated by gorgeous floral arrangements, crafted by Rawan! Thats right, Rawan is a very talented floral designer and entrepreneur at Aurora Botanica, based in Brooklyn, New York! But, the talent doesn’t stop their folks! Zac is a very talented musician who played some songs at the reception when he wasn’t busy twirling around his new bride around the dance floor!

A big congrats to Zac and Rawan! It was a joy to be apart of your very special day! Checkout their wedding video down below!

 

 

 

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!

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.

Glen Manor House - Wedding Dress

 

Savory Affair Styled Shoot

We teamed up not too long ago with our friends at The Savory Affair, The Local Bouquet, Easy Entertaining, and Newport Vineyards to work on a corporate styled shoot. There is a plethora of wedding themed styled shoots (which, for the record, there’s nothing wrong with that in the least) so Savory Affair contacted us with the idea of doing something a little different. It was essentially geared toward businesses that might want to run events for their employees, corporate parties, etc.

 

Savory Affair is an excellent planning outfit that does both weddings and corporate events and they wanted a chance to show off their corporate planning muscle. The Local Bouquet is a florist you should definitely check out. They source everything locally (as you might imagine based on their name) and create really incredible stuff.

 

You might remember our friends over at Easy Entertaining from some past work we’ve done with them. They run a cafe/restaurant in Providence and also cater weddings and events all over Southern New England. They also make good hamburgers. Nik from EE came and did some demos for us to photograph to show what they can provide for corporate team building and educational events.

 

Last but not least this all took place at Newport Vineyards which had really awesome outdoor space as well as the tank room where all the wine is made. It had a cool industrial look and feel to it. They hold corporate events as well as weddings in their space if you’re looking for something like that.

 

Some highlights from our shoot can be found below. Check’em out!

Christina and Tom | Belle Mer Wedding

Let’s start our week off with a glimpse at Christina and Tom’s Belle Mer wedding! Matt and Fred were able to join them and photograph the lovely affair.

 

Christina and her favorite ladies teamed up with New Leaf Studios to take care of all of their hair and makeup needs. After the final stroke of mascara was applied, Christina stepped into her gorgeous Morilee wedding dress from Wishing Well Bridal! Now that our bride was glowing and the bridesmaids looked stunning, we all set off for Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church for the ceremony. Christina walked down the aisle to the man of her dreams. Tom and Christina made vows and expressed their love to each other in front of all of their friends and family, it was absolutely lovely!

 

Now that our bride and groom were officially wed, they led they way to Belle Mer which was beautifully decorated with the help of Stoneblossom, who created fantastic floral arrangements to set the stage for the celebration! After enjoying one incredibly delicious meal and tasty sweets, everyone danced the night away with C-Zone Entertainment!

Here’s a peek at Laura and Ben’s Belle Mer Wedding! Emily and Fred were able to capture beautiful moments from their very special day.

 

Laura spent the morning in Newport getting ready with all her favorite girls surrounded by love and laughter. Once hair and makeup was complete, Laura stepped into her stunning wedding gown. After applying a few finishing touches, Laura went off to see Ben for a first look at Belle Mer! Ben, and the rest of us, were in awe at his beautiful bride! While the two love birds talked for a few minutes, we took a few pictures and then it was time to head off to the wedding ceremony!

 

Everyone watched as the glowing bride walked down the aisle to the man of her dreams. As the sun was setting, Ben and Laura exchanged lovely vows in front of their families and friends and sealed their love with a kiss! Now that vows were said and everything was official, it was time for the reception. The newly weds spent the rest of the evening sharing a delicious meal with their loved ones and danced the rest of the night away!
