Anh & Leon's Belle Mer Wedding l Part 2

8.24.2012

Hi everyone! I apologize for the delay, it's been a crazy wedding season but I'm finally back to wrap up Anh and Leon's wedding that we coordinated this year. If you haven't read Part 1 yet, be sure to check it out here.

Anh and Leon started the reception with their first dance and DJ Boogz along with the Boston Common Band did such a wonderful job with the entertainment. High Output Inc. provided the lighting for the space and it really made the room soft and romantic. Guests were treated to a mouth watering menu options from; filet mignon, smoked short ribs and wild striped bass. One of my favorite wedding cake vendors, Dessert Works provided the four tiered wedding cake. As always, they never disappoint! After dinner, the party really got started and the dance floor was quite the popular spot along with the flip book station provided by the Flip Chix. Flip books are so much fun and if you're looking for something else besides the photo booth, this is it. The Bride took a moment to change into her second dress by Jovani with the back of the dress custom made. Anh wore an equally gorgeous ballet flats by Jimmy Choo.

The entire evening was filled with so much energy and surprises. Before the evening ended, guests were treated to a late night menu from; mini burgers, tater tots, milk shake shots, macarons and the cutest minion cookies made by the Bride's friend. Flip flops were also available for the guests who were dancing the night away on the dance floor. Now that's what you call the royal treatment!!

Anh & Leon's Belle Mer Wedding l Part 1

6.14.2012

On May 26th 2012, I had the honor of coordinating Anh and Leon's extravagant wedding held at Belle Mer in Newport, Rhode Island. It was Memorial Day weekend and the bride and groom couldn't have chosen a better long weekend to get married. The day started early with the Bride and the bridesmaid's getting their hair and make up done at the Salon Room at Belle Mer. Jennie Kay- A Beauty Parlor styled all the ladies hair with Nam Vo of New York, did the bride and some of the bridal parties gorgeous make up. The bride wore a breathtaking strapless, sweetheart, mermaid gown with asymmetrical pleated bodice and cut organza blossom hem from the Vera Wang Fall Collection with blue Christian Louboutin pumps. (If you're thinking WOW, just wait until you see the beautiful bride change into her second look!) Mark Kuroda Photography from San Fransisco was there to capture all the special moments and David Long of Epic Filmmakers was the videographer. Both vendors were so amazing to work with and I highly recommend them!



















The ceremony took place outside at the Water Salon Lawn. When the bride began to walk down the aisle, drops of rain started to come down. But the super-calm, Bride, gave us the signal to just go with it anyways. When the bride made it down the aisle to meet her handsome groom, the sun started to come out and the weather for the entire evening was nothing but perfect! It truly was a memorable moment for everyone. Kreative Vision Floral, were the masterminds behind the beautiful blush tone centerpieces and bridal bouquets.













After the ceremony, the bride and groom were greeted with champagne and I took them over to the thumbprint guest book so they can be the first to sign it. Meanwhile, guest enjoyed cocktail hour at the Water Salon and were treated to 5 different passed horsd'oeuvres; gouda mac & cheese, tuna tartare, petite fish taco, carne assada and jerk chicken salad.
















Remember to come back to our blog next week to hear about Anh and Leon's Wedding Part 2! You'll see photos of the bride's stunning second dress, couple's first dance, lots of dancing at the reception and hear about the rest of the vendors who made this wedding happen!

Sweet Planning!
