We are so excited to announce Ariel and Ben’s wedding featured on Over the Moon!
Ariel and Ben were married at the historic mansion, Rosecliff, set on the cliffs of Newport, RI. Ariel had always imaged herself getting married at her favorite childhood destination of Palm Beach, but when they found out two of the most important guests were pregnant they decided to keep their wedding a bit more local. The couple being from New York City, thought Newport with its quant charm, and short distance from the city would be the perfect alternative.
The ceremony took place in the mansions salon with the aisle gently candlelit, giving the space a romantic element for the couple to say their i do’s. After the ceremony guests made their way to the mansions elegant stone terrace, boasting with stationary food displays, including a raw bar from McGrath’s Clambakes and an Asian inspired station provided by Blackstone Catering. As guests enjoy their light bites, they sipped on champagne infused with Rosemary as a nod to the mansions 1920’s history.
Stoneblossom worked effortlessly to bring Ariel’s vision for the reception space to life. Tall floral center pieces added dramatic affect to the round guests tables that surrounded the tuscan style head table in the center of the mansion’s ballroom. The wedding party all dined together at the tuscan table with a floral runner down the center of it. Ariel chose to incorporate a modern aspect in to the design of the place setting with the heirloom smoke chargers from Peak. The gold arrezo flatware added an aspect of traditional elegance to the setting, along with light blue hemstitched napkin, found by Ariel herself. Guests hit the dance floor to the ever so talented Stardust Band after they enjoyed a delicious two course meal from Blackstone Catering.
It was such pleasure working with Ariel and Ben to plan their elegant mansion wedding! Be sure to check out their full wedding onOver the Moon!
