Sweet sweet summertime! Nicole and Kevin had such a gorgeous wedding at the Bohlin (formerly the Newport Yachting Center) in downtown Newport. There are so many great things about this little gem of a venue but let me share my favorites. 1- The VIEW! Holy moly, no where else in Newport do you get this view of the bridge AND the harbor. Your guests get to enjoy it for the entire ceremony and cocktail hour, and then the reception with the tent flaps open let guests go on and off the dancefloor and take in the beauty of all the boats lit up at night. 2 – The TENT! The Bohlin in their remodel took notes from sister property Castle Hill and designed a custom made Sperry Tent for all their events. It’s absolutely stunning. 3 – The Ceremony Site – Um, did you see that photo above, with the schooner drive by? That was right during the vow exchange. It was breathtaking. Guests were flipping out it was so beautiful even I had tears! 4 – The Staff! These folks know their stuff. They are so helpful to vendors when we are trying to organize everyone on that teensey little dock for photos and making sure guests aren’t inside until we are done with pics. And 5 – The FOOD! OMG. They had an opening party for vendors early last summer and I can personally vouch that the food is gorgeous and delicious.
Nicole and Kevin wanted another location for photos, so we started at Rosecliff before we came to Bohlin, and we had so much fun exploring the grounds of the mansion. I love the juxtaposition of the mansion photos with the photos we took at Bohlin as well. Great choice!
Come see their wedding in the newest edition of Bliss Celebrations HERE and on newstands now!
