Entertaining, Uncategorized, weddingStylish Newport Wedding May 11, 2011 By classiccasualhome 52 Comments My friend, Claire’s daughter, was married last Saturday. Many thoughtful details were evident at the party at the Newport Harbor Yacht Club. (You may remember Katherine’s bridal shower from this post and this post. ). Their guest book is actually a pretty photo album. Notice the newlywed’s JMK monogram on the sign above and below? We started with cocktails and appetizers on the patio overlooking the bay. You can see the harbor in the window reflection. The straws are a pretty touch. A steel drum band played “island” music. It had been overcast most of the day, but the sun came out just before the wedding ceremony in the chapel on Balboa Island (below). Inside each hand calligraphied envelope was the guest’s table number. The envelopes were alphabetized and placed in trays lined with pearl shells. The décor included silver and mercury glass vases and votives. Claire also provided little touches like Jo Malone hand soap in the restroom. The beautiful angular cake with the monogram and fresh blossoms. Katherine’s grandmother’s wedding cake topper is along side. Following these photos… the sunset, dinner and dancing. The music was so good, my husband was actually pulling me (instead of the other way around) onto the dance floor. Thank you, Claire, Dwight, Katherine and Jeff for a beautiful experience. With everything Claire had to do the day after the wedding (and it was Mother’s Day), she delivered the above centerpiece to my home. How sweet is she? Best wishes, Mary Ann Our home is being feature on Open House Party. Thanks Sherry.
