New England Manor Wedding with Champagne and Green Hues

Elegant Weddings

The Kennedys themselves may have said “I do” at this refined Rhode Island stomping ground, but Bryana and Alex’s classic manor wedding marked a bold moment in history on its own. The natural grace and luxury of the venue was enhanced further by such details as wispy greens, gold-rimmed glasses and a classic car we can’t get enough of. Join us as we continue to admire this genteel soiree with elegant wedding inspiration around every corner.

From the photographer, Stephanie Vegliante Photography: On Bryana and Alex’s wedding day we were graced with ideal weather which is few and far between in New England. Bryana styled their wedding with impeccable taste. Walking into their wedding day was any creatives dream and sparked so much creativity and no detail was overlooked. Following their wedding ceremony which took place in St.Mary’s Church in Newport, RI where JFK and Jackie Onassis exchanged vows in 1953, the European styled Glen Manor House in Portsmouth, RI was filled with champagne fountains, greenery details, hand-drawn place cards and an adorable dessert spread.

Bryana’s lace wedding gown and Alex’s velvet loafers projected the utmost class and sophistication. Her florals from Rose of Sharon adorned the entire mansion and brought a feel of romance to every table and fireplace throughout the venue. Her bouquet was the perfect balance of neutral and greenery to project a timeless feel and keep the focus on her stunning lace gown. Blue tones paired with neutrals and classic blue tuxedos for the men brought her styling vision to life. It’s weddings like these that keep my creative excitement flowing and pushing me to want to create more beautiful images.

Bespoke Engagement Rings And A Sweet Proposal From Clean Origin

Fashion & Beauty

We love a good proposal story as much as we love pajama day on the weekends. Which is A LOT. And the sweet story below is brought to us by Clean Origin. Creating bespoke engagement rings is their game, and we’d say they’re doing pretty well as far as dazzling lab-grown diamonds at an oh-my-gosh-can-you-believe-it price are concerned. We’ll get chatty about their ethical fine jewelry in a few, but first, warm fuzzies!

Florida proposal with lab-grown diamond ring

From a Clean Origin groom, Jonathan Dykert: “She thought we were heading to siesta key for a relaxing getaway. We arrived around 7 PM and went straight to get a nice dinner on the water. After dinner we went straight to our rental.

Little did she know, our very closest friends had already been there all day, decorating, and preparing the rooftop deck. We went upstairs, as I told her we wanted to do a sunset photo shoot from the deck. Once we got upstairs she saw the candles, rose petals, and champagne and knew what was going on.

We had an amazing moment up on the roof, I had engraved a note to her and wood with a photo of us, and she loved the ring! She said yes!

After a glass of champagne and some photos, we went down the spiral staircase to find a great surprise party for us with our very closest friends. We then celebrated for the rest of the weekend with everyone.

I found out about Clean Origin by searching on google. I was looking through 2-3 different websites, and I found the perfect ring (at the best price) with them.”

So. much. sweetness! Now, since we’re on the heels of engagement season, you mayyyyy want to bookmark this page or “accidentally” leave the tab open for your partner to see. Casually, of course ;)

classic engagement rings
1. Symphony Ring | 2. Contessa Ring | 3. Barcelona Ring | 4. Fantasy Ring | 5. Petite Floating Gem Ring | 6. Delicate Double Weave Diamond Ring

There are so many things to take stock of with these beauts from Clean Origin, but let’s start with the fact they’re lab-grown diamonds. Not only does this mean they are ethically and environmentally friendly, it means they cost 30-40% less than your average mined diamond. Not because of a difference in quality! Lab-grown diamonds are totally and completely real diamonds that are cut, polished and graded according to the same standards. However, eliminating miners in this process means they touch fewer hands. And if you’re following our train of thought, this could mean a less expensive engagement ring or a larger carat diamond for virtually the same price you’d be spending anywhere else!

solitaire engagement rings
1. Classica Ring | 2. Twisted Vine Ring | 3. Natura Ring | 4. Giselle Ring | 5. Classic Princess Solitaire | 6. Tapered Solitaire Ring

Florida proposal with a lab-grown diamond

Now this gal said yes to a brilliant round diamond, but there are loads more where that came from. Emerald, oval, pear, radiant, cushion, marquise, and princess to name a few. Clean Origin’s custom ring builder allows you to start with the setting or diamond of choice, the latter with which you can filter by shape, the 4 C’s and price.

halo engagement rings
1. Kensington Ring | 2. Petite Vintage Halo Ring | 3. Contessa Halo Ring | 4. Petite Delicate Halo Ring | 5. Classic Pear Shaped Halo Ring | 6. Ponte Vecchio Ring

The bands are divided into categories like Halo, Classic, Vintage and Solitaire (and trust us, this is an area we could peruse all day – hence, the roundups!), and you can simply match the diamond with the setting from there. Did we mention you can see these wedding sets in 3D? Gotta love technology! These rings from Clean Origin are the epitome of beauty, and we’re pretty sure you’ll love their earrings and bracelets too. When in doubt, frost yourself!

vintage inspired engagement rings
1. Allegra Ring | 2. Square Halo with Milgrain Ring | 3. Contessa Halo Ring | 4. Dolce Vita Ring | 5. Fifth Avenue Ring | 6. Aspen Ring

With 3 generations of artisan jewelry-making under their belt, we’d say they have some pretty solid know-how, and the result is over 100 ring styles that glisten and gleam like there’s no tomorrow. Head over to their site to start dreaming up the bespoke ring that matches your style + personality, and like we said, there’s no better time for a bookmark than this ;)

Intimate Quintessentially British Wedding

Rustic Weddings

There are few things we adore more than sleeping in, and today’s quintessentially British wedding is one of them! The cozy + relaxed vibe of Christabel and Loren’s day made it easy for us to get up this Monday morning – and we’re confident the enchanting reception with beeswax candles, the botanical curtain ceremony backdrop and the haphazard scone tower cake will get your week off on the right foot. Shall we, darling?
