Castle Hill Wedding Highlight // Heather & Simon’s Newport Wedding

“Take It All In” by Trent Dabbs licensed by The Music Bed

Upon our first Skype meeting with Heather & Simon we immediately became so excited for their wedding. They met in the UK while Heather was traveling there and while they were dating spent a great deal of time in the States.  Simon proposed to Heather twice, the first time there was no ring. By Heather’s surprise, while they were looking for wedding venues in Newport, Simon took her to Castle Hill Inn (she had no idea they had dinner reservations and that the entire staff was in on Simon’s plan). They sat down for dinner, and the staff brought them a cake that said “Marry Me”. She said yes, for the second time, and the whole restaurant was just as excited as they were. This is why they decided to host their wedding ceremony and reception at Castle Hill Inn.

Their wedding day was extremely personalized with heartfelt readings during the ceremony. Many of their guests traveled from far distances to be with them on this special day, including their little Ewok friend! (You will have to watch their highlight film to see who we are talking about). Everything about their wedding day was so laid back and fun. You couldn’t help but smile whenever you saw the two of them together. Heather’s father shared the sweetest version of their proposal story, and the night continued with great food, and awesome entertainment.

Cara + Sean’s Wedding Film // Belle Mer, Newport, RI

Cara and Sean had the quintessential Newport Wedding at the beautiful Belle Mer. This couple had so many amazing details (you’ll see in the video)! The floral arrangements and bouquets where amazing, the lighting added just the right ambiance and the band brought the fun!!! There were so many emotional points in the day, we were constantly reaching for our tissues. From the readings at the ceremony by their parents, to the toasts from the Best Man and Maid of honor, we had touching speeches throughout the entire day! Also, look at how having multiple cameras allowed us to capture great shots of Sean as Cara came down the aisle! We love having such great couples to work with!!! I hope you all enjoy!
