Rosecliff Mansion Wedding | Ashley & Will | Newport, RI
“Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale.”
This is the quote that lives across the top of Ashley & Will’s Wedding website and it could not be a better fit for them. How do I even begin to describe Ashley and Will’s wedding? Fairytale is definitely an appropriate word...how about elegant, classic, and fashionable? From Ashley’s Galia Lahav dress, to her René Caovilla shoes from Venice (where her and Will got engaged!) to her AMAZING long flowing veil, this wedding belongs in a bridal magazine.
Ashley and Will are from DC, but chose to be married at the Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island, one of the most beautiful and elegant venues in the US. To put their venue in perspective, this is where they filmed The Great Gatsby. It could not have been a more appropriate place for these two to get married.
Rosecliff’s beauty is only a fraction of the reason why they chose to wed there. When Ashley was growing up, her family used to sail up to Newport in the summer and since she was a little girl she’s always dreamed of getting married at Rosecliff. It had that charm, elegance and sentimental value that simply couldn’t compare to getting married anywhere else.
What I love most about Ashley and Will is their ability to be their complete selves with one another. They are silly and playful and have so many inside jokes with each other that were referenced the day of their wedding. They both share the best sense of humor and their personalities totally balance each other out. They also happen to be the biggest cat lovers. Together they are the proud kitty parents of four cats- @therealhousecatsofDC if you’d like to follow them on Instagram.
It was the most beautiful, sunny day at Rosecliff the day of Ashley & Will’s wedding. They held their ceremony outside in the back of Rosecliff in front of the gorgeous fountain, and overlooking the ocean. They both shared the most warm-hearted vows with one another, and just when you felt like you were going to tear up, they would say something funny to counteract your feelings. It was so obvious how in love these two are through the words they spoke to each other and their body language.
After the ceremony, the two shared an amazing champagne toast and the evening carried on to be a great party with their band Closing Time rocking it out. Newport offered the most amazing sunset and we were sure to take advantage. We stopped by two locations right on Ocean Drive for some epic sunset shots which did not disappoint. Ashley had the most beautiful veil after all, it was only fitting to get some “veil in motion.” All in all, it was the most magical day spent celebrating two perfectly in love people and we couldn’t be more happy with the way their film came out.
