THE CHANLER WEDDING PHOTOS
The Chanler at Cliff Walk in Newport, RI is the perfect venue for an exclusive and intimate wedding celebration. This luxury boutique hotel just off Newport’s famous mansion row (Bellevue Ave) boasts amazing views over Easton’s Bay, and its gorgeous, manicured gardens are the stuff wedding dreams are made of. And then there are the rooms! Each of the 20 rooms is completely unique, and all are luxuriously decorated. I’ve been lucky enough to spend a night in the Louis XVI room, one of the signature suites, and I fell in love with the private balcony overlooking the bay, the huge four poster bed, and the jacuzzi soaking tub. Heaven! Any of these rooms would make a perfect backdrop for your getting ready photos.
The Chanler wedding photos in the slideshow above are from Maithy and Brian’s beautiful early summer wedding there. They got ready at the sister hotel, La Farge Perry House in Newport, RI. La Farge Perry is a historic house with pretty grounds and some fabulous getting ready rooms. It’s a more relaxed place than The Chanler, but every bit as historic. After photographing the girls getting ready, we held a first look for the bride and groom outside in the garden. Then, we went on a little photo tour of Newport, taking in the mansions and Ocean Drive. I really love the portraits from Ocean Drive – and one of the benefits of getting married at The Chanler is its proximity to the mansions and vistas that Newport is so famous for. The ceremony was held on the beautiful lawn, under a tent (you can opt not to use a tent, of course), and dinner was served on the patio, by the hotel’s restaurant, Spiced Pear.
If you’d like to see some more Chanler wedding photos, feel free to ask me for the gallery link. And a fun little fact: the photo of Maithy’s wedding dress hanging in her getting ready room is one of my award winning photos! The Chanler is located at 117 Memorial Blvd, Newport, RI 02840.
