Kelsey and Rory | Castle Hill Inn Wedding

There is just something about a New England seaside wedding that we just can’t get enough of. Early fall brings a whole new level of romance to the rocky coast of Newport. Mix that with a sunny day with perfect, fluffy clouds, and you’ve got a recipe for wedding magic. Kelsey and Rory had such a day in September of 2016. Dan filmed the happy couple and Matt brought our favorite toy: the drone! Without further a do, check out Kelsey and Rory’s wedding at Castle Hill Inn below!

 

The Wedding Day!

Kelsey started the wedding day off primping and preparing in one of the beautiful rooms at Castle Hill Inn. Kelsey chose and amazing illusion neckline and topped the look off with flowers in her hair. What a stunning bride! Before heading off the ceremony, the lovebirds took some time for a first look and intimate photo session by the lighthouse. The joy and excitement to see each other was absolutely contagious. They kept right on beaming through the sweet ceremony at Jesus Saviour Church. After greeting happy guests outside the church, everyone headed back to Castle Hill Inn to celebrate the newlyweds!

 

The reception tent was decked out in popcorn lights, and the most beautiful greenery arrangements. After the formalities, and an awesome meal, everyone was ready for a party! The happy couple and their guests danced the night away. We are so thrilled to have been a part of such a wonderful day. Thanks so much for choosing us to be a part of your wedding story, Kelsey and Rory! Many happy years together to the two of you. Be sure to check out their highlight film below!

Venue Spotlight | Aldrich Mansion

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 next edition of our venue spotlight series: Aldrich Mansion!

 

Aldrich Mansion

Aldrich Mansion is a stunning French chateau overlooking Narragansett Bay. The entire mansion is a work of art.  Everywhere you look there is pristinely preserved polished stone and murals on the ceiling. It’s luxurious and lovely. Located on Warwick Neck, the mansion is tucked away from the traffic of Newport or Providence. We’ve worked with Tony, the event coordinator at Aldrich Mansion for many years… and we love him! You couldn’t be in better hands than Tony and the rest of the staff. They are the best at what they do.

 

Some details about the space: there are multiple dining rooms that you can combine to seat up to 230 guests. There’s a gorgeous library that can host cocktail hour or serve as an awesome backdrop for photos.  The most gorgeous landscaping you can imagine surrounds a huge multi-level patio overlooking the water. We’ve seen that patio used for cocktail hour or for formal dances and speeches. Here’s another fabulous amenity: on on-site chapel is available for Catholic ceremonies. Because there’s so many flexible spaces on the property, you can really customize it to your own needs, making this the perfect Rhode Island wedding location.

 

If you’re getting married, Aldrich Mansion should definitely be on your list of venues to check out. Below is an aerial video of the outside of of the property along with some photo highlights from a few weddings that we’ve shot there. Be sure to check it all out!
