Elisabeth and Michael at Eisenhower House

A gorgeous sunny summer day in Newport set the tone for a spectacular celebration for this lovely couple. Elisabeth's Stoneblossom bouquet of Blue and white Hydrangea (sooo Newport!), spray roses and delicate accents of pale blue tweedia was perfect.

Such a great shot of the beautiful Bride!

All set to tie the knot!

The handsome groom awaits at the church door....

Cymbidium orchid boutonniere - a classic choice. They hold up beautifully in the summer heat!

A kiss from Dad...

Let's go celebrate!

The festive recption was held at the Eisenhower House - an 1873 mansion on the sprawling grounds of Fort Adams Park. A long line of military officers resided here and - most notably - it was the Summer Whitehouse for President Dwight D. Eisenhower. It has grand views of Newport Harbor and the Narragansett Bay.

Dinner and dancing took place in this unique tent from Sperry Tents. They are hand-sewn from sailcloth, and this pic nicely shows the unmistakable elegant look and superlative craftmenship of this illuminated oval design. Love the flags on top! They have round tents too!!!

AS the mother of the bride, I can't say enough about Stoneblossom and it's owner Joyce. This was our second time using this florist, and we just couldn't be more pleased. Thank you Joyce!
Beth and Mike, We love you! It is a day that we will always cherish in our hearts! God Bless!
