A Regal Nautical Wedding at Belle Mer in Newport, Rhode Island

Louann Donovan (28 and a financial analyst) and Eric Hogberg (29 and an attorney) held their wedding at the beautiful Belle Mer Island House in Goat Island in Newport, Rhode Island. Inspired by their ocean-side setting, the couple chose a classic nautical anchor theme with a slight twist: Instead of going for the traditional color palette of white and navy, they opted for a purple and gold color palette, giving their nautical wedding a regal touch. Their purple anchor theme was used throughout the decor of the wedding, from the invitation suite to the table numbers and even down to the customized cocktail napkins.
