Rosecliff Mansion Wedding | Cat & David

Cat and David chose the gorgeous Rosecliff Mansion for their wedding day and what a gorgeous day it was!  We started the day at the Newport Marriott and Cat’s room had quite the view!Cat’s shoes were killer!!

A couple floors down, the guys were getting ready with David…

A heart sock for the finishing touch:)

Back in the girls room it was just about time for Cat to get into her dress:)

Absolutely STUNNING!

Cat and David decided that they wanted to do a quick first look before their church ceremony…Cat and her parents pulled up in this fabulous car!

Off to the church we went…

Love these shots of Cat waiting to head into the church…

As Cat’s grandmother came up the isle she waved to everyone – I just LOVED her….she is so sweet and has such pep too!

In many churches, you do not get a chance to photograph the bride and grooms faces very much, so I snuck these during communion and I just love the happiness:)

We made a pit stop in downtown Newport before heading to the venue!

As the girls and guys headed back into the limo, Cat, David and I headed to this spot. Cat loves it and we had used it during their engagement session too – click here to take a peek and see their session!

We arrived at the gorgeous Rosecliff Mansion and had to use this fabulous car before bidding if farewell:)

Everywhere you look at Rosecliff there is gorgeous spot for pictures, but the front of the mansion is definitely a classic – and deservedly so:)

Rosecliff on an afternoon spring day is basking in sunlight (and Cat and David’s wedding party were troupers with the sun in their eyes), but if you turn in a different direction, you get the golden glow of a back lit spring afternoon:)

Gorgeous spring light at Rosecliff (with a gorgeous couple:)!

We headed out back to do all of our family formals before cocktail began…It was Cat and David’s wish to have all photos completed well before cocktail and we did it:) They enjoyed every minute of their cocktail hour and reception with even some resting time before it began!

The back of Rosecliff is just as gorgeous as the front!

Inside of the Rosecliff ballroom, the room was just about ready for the reception to begin!

This stunning cake was made by the sweetest Lisa Raffael of Delicious Desserts!

After cocktail hour, there reception began with a bang 🙂

Thanks to the band – Stardust – the dancing kicked off immediately!

Cat and David, thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of your wedding story. I was honored to be a part of it:)!

Bride/Groom Questions

What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Every Second! impossible to pick which one!

What was your favorite detail?
The table settings! With the flowers, table numbers and gold flat ware all tied to together, it looked better than it did in my dreams!

Any advice for future brides/grooms?
Don’t get to caught up in the planning part of it and lose sight of your relationship in the process.

Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Seeing everyone, including grandparents on the dance floor.

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We are waiting until January when we both have a break from work.
