If you love sunsets in Newport, you’re going to love this Belle Mer Wedding. Belle Mer is a classic, timeless New England wedding venue, and the views of Narragansett Bay are spectacular. It is the perfect setting for a bride and groom who would love a Newport, Rhode Island wedding. The summer breeze, and afternoon light glistening off the water added to the atmosphere of celebration for this sweet couple along with their family and friends. It was an honor to work alongside Sarah Kristiansen as a second photographer to capture pictures for this lovely day. Jessa and Avi chose to get ready at Villa One Twenty in Middletown which is a beautiful bed and breakfast minutes away from the venue. Not only did the bride have a first glance with her father at Villa One, the bride and groom also had a first look to see each other in a private moment before leaving for their ceremony. After the first look, we also captured a few pictures at Villa One Twenty of the wedding party, and parents to add some variety to their locations for pictures. Jessa and Avi’s ceremony was outside on the plush lawn with a backdrop of the Newport bridge. The reception was held in an elegant ballroom with the couple’s sweetheart table nestled in front of inescapable views of the ocean and a gorgeous July summer sunset. The sun setting over the bay was perfect for wedding day photos of the bride and groom, and ending the night with lots of dancing to the sounds of a live band.
