A Castle Hill Inn Wedding in Newport, Rhode Island

The couple cultivated a refined, easy feel for their waterfront nuptials with a color palette of light pink, white, peach and hints of gold.

The couple cultivated a refined, easy feel for their waterfront nuptials with a color palette of light pink, white, peach and hints of gold.

The couple was married in a traditional Jewish ceremony, which included the giving of the Seven Blessings.
During cocktail hour, guests noshed on sushi, lobster sliders and fresh oysters from the raw bar.
The elegant place settings had touches of gold on the chargers, wine glasses and flatware.
The couple sent guests home with locally made pickles, in honor of their dog Mr. Pickles. (He made a cameo on the favor tags!)
When it came to bridesmaid dresses, Lisa asked each of her ladies to select a pale pink or nude dress that she wouldn’t mind wearing again. “Amazingly, without any coordination, they all picked dresses that were within the same color range,” she says. “I think they looked stunning together.”
Sprigs of lavender, tied with rustic twine, were attached to the elegant white escort cards.
They were actually incredibly comfortable, says Lisa, of her Swarovski-crystal embellished Jimmy Choo shoes.
The dress I chose was one that I felt like I was wearing, as opposed to one that was wearing me, says Lisa. Her silk, white Chantilly lace sheath gown by Monique Lhuillier was ideal for the outdoor, summer celebration.
The wedding cake was finished with ombré gum paste petals.
The centerpieces were low vintage wooden boxes filled with roses, succulents, seeded eucalyptus, thistle, spider dahlias, dusty miller and grasses. “I loved the soft and low-key, yet lush, feeling of all the pink and white tones offset with the earthier colors of the vintage boxes, burlap and gold,” Lisa says.
“The huppah and terrace perfectly framed the many sailboats that floated by during the ceremony,” Lisa recalls. “With such incredible natural, ambient beauty, we didn’t want to overdesign and steal from the location.
“I grew up on Cape Cod, so I always wanted to be married on the water,” Lisa says of their choice of locale.
The sushi bar was a crowd favorite during the cocktail hour.
The groom and groomsmen all wore their own suits with Hermes ties (gifts from the bride and groom).
Mark Ingram made Lisa's custom veil, which coordinated with the lace on her gown.
