Alysa and Tim had the quintessential summer in Newport wedding on the beautiful grounds of the Eisenhower House at Fort Adams. Their color palette of shades of blue was the perfect pairing with the buttery yellow facade of the Eisenhower House. Alysa chose shades of blue for the bridesmaids, the Tim and the guys were in classic Tuxedos. A bright blue vintage car took the couple to the church. They chose to have their ceremony at Salve Regina’s chapel, so perfect! The sun shone through at the perfect moments creating the most beautiful shadows. I loved how they put Oysters everywhere at the ceremony, from the Raw Bar to the Cake table to the invitations, the theme was carried throughout the beautiful tent. These two had SO much fun and I’m so honored to have been a part of their day. You can see more images as featured on Grey Likes Weddings!
