We love Newport and RI for that matter. It is one of the best wedding destination location in the Continental US. Our first time at Belle Mer, and what a beautiful and highly professional place. And the view, ahh. It is the best feature from all. Especially at night when you see the entire Newport bridge all lit up. We cannot wait to come back. However, we weren’t thrilled too much about the rain, although we were so lucky the rain took a breather until the ceremony was over. It almost didn’t happened outside. Immediately when we finished it started to pour. So we were forced to wait until late into the night to get some creative shots. But I think they came out so beautiful with the bridge in the background.
A funny story, we have decided to travel to Newport a day before, to get establishing shots of the environment and to catch the rehearsal dinner. The plan was to book a room there, so we don’t waste time traveling back and forth. First we were caught in a horrible traffic going towards Newport, and we couldn’t understand why that is, being an early on Friday. When we got into Newport, it got even worse. We finally got there, get the shots, went to shoot the rehearsal dinner and after that we went with our plan of booking a room for the night. That’s when things start going wrong. The hotel we picked informed us they are fully booked, so we went to look for another one and there they said the same answer, “we are fully booked, don’t you know what’s this weekend”, we said “no what”, he said ” it’s the folk festival in Newport, the busiest weekend of the year. You’ll be lucky to find one free room in the entire town”. We started to panic and prepare to spend a night in the car. Luckily after searching frantically the entire evening, we found one free room at the Johnson and Howard costing us $270. We really learned our lesson there.
