Niki & Joe's Wedding at Rosecliff Mansion in Newport RI
July 25th, 2015
This past summer, we had the honor of being part of this beautiful wedding at Rosecliff Mansion, an opulent testament to the gilded age that set the stage for this romantic affair.
For those of you not familiar with the Newport Mansions, Rosecliff is a French Baroque Revival built on a 6.5 acre estate on the coastline of Newport. It was inspired by the Grand Trianon in Versailles and its Ballroom alone, where wedding receptions are held, is 2,800 sq ft.

I came up with three design options, and after a few revisions Niki decided on the one below

I love that Niki chose a very different linen for the cake table; this one was just perfect with its feathery layers of organza petals, so romantic & pretty. Just a touch of whimsy in an otherwise very formal event.

Hand-painting the decorative details, such as borders and piping, can be painstaking but it's well worth it when you see the final product.
