A Glamorous, Elegant Wedding at Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island
Sarah Ghermay (25 and a graduate student) and Suleman Iddrissu (27 and an investment professional) channeled the opulence of the Rosecliff Mansion into a palette of antique blush and gold for their luxe summer nuptials.
Satin linens, votive candles and towering arrangements of white orchids tied in seamlessly with the lavish décor of the turn-of-the-century ballroom. “We wanted our guests to walk into the room and feel as if they were royalty,” Sarah says.
For an after-dinner treat, the couple served a tiered, gilded cake that featured six different flavors, including lemon, carrot and chocolate. To match the regal feel of the Baroque revival–style mansion, the bridesmaids wore strapless, full-length gowns, while the groomsmen donned classic black tuxedos.
