I have been dying to share this beautiful Newport wedding at Castle Hill Inn with you, but had to keep it under wraps since it was recently featured on Style Me Pretty! A very special thank you to Lauren Methia Photography for having me along. This was definitely an affair to remember. Not a single detail was overlooked, and I started in the bridal suite with Ashley and her beautiful bridesmaids. I loved the robes, it made it much easier to remember names, and everyone just looked too cute in them!
I parted with the girls for a bit to visit with the guys while they took care of their finishing touches. Ashley’s dad saved the day with his sewing skills when there was a slight button mishap on Peter’s shirt!
With everyone ready to go, it was time to head to the lawn for the ceremony. Ashley and Peter thought of everything to make sure their guests were comfortable during this warm July day, from paper fans, to iced tea and lemonade!
The day wasn’t just about Ashley and Peter. At every opportunity, Peter’s daughter, Hadley was included in the ceremony, to make it official that the three of them were a family (they were clearly a family before, but I loved seeing Hadley excited to be a part of everything).Married!
The surprises never ended with this wedding! The last thing Ashley’s dad had up his sleeve was fireworks over the water. It doesn’t get much more amazing than that! Ashley and Peter had no idea, they were bamboozled into thinking we were doing a nighttime group portrait of everyone at the wedding.
