Getting Ready

A beautiful invitation suite and rings to kick off this joyous multicultural wedding at Rosecliff. Elegant!



One of our favorite images from the day, Serena’s mother helping her with the buttons on her gown.


Serena cuddling with American host-mom and her Korean mom. There’s so much love between these women.

It took a village to raise this impressive young woman.


Let’s not forget to have a special moment with the bride and her father!


Jonathan was getting ready nearby with his father and his groomsmen.




An amazing first look at Rosecliff

Jonathan was waiting patiently in place when Serena arrived, the first look was dramatic and sweet at the same time!


Love this anticipatory moment.


Jonathan approves!



Alone Time

Time for some photos of the couple!


Strolling always makes for good photos.


The light, the background, the beautiful bride … perfection!


Cue the wind. 🙂



Must-have classic wedding portrait.


Bridal Party


So cute!


The squeeze in shot 😉


And a formal one too for good measure.


Signing the Ketubah

It’s so special to have the immediate family members present for this important moment. Love the reactions of the parents looking on.



The Ceremony

Stunning ocean-view backdrop and a lush chuppa for Serena and Jonathan’s vows.


Proud moment for the Mother of the Groom.


LOVE LOVE LOVE this picture!




Jonathan surprised Serena and recited his vows to her in Korean. It was emotional for everyone. They laughed, they cried!




Mazel Tov!





Champagne Tower

Really love how Rosecliff offers the champagne tower- it’s so festive!





The sun sets behind the front of the mansion, so it usually hidden by the trees. However, we got some lucky with some pink sky this evening and we capitalized on it!




Rosecliff’s Ballroom

Is there a prettier room in all of Newport? It is quintessential gilded age!



Sweetheart Staircase

The most elegant way to make an entrance…





Nailed it!


VIP Dances



So sweet how all of the parents participated in the blessing over the challah.


Sweet Cake Cutting



Let the dizzying dancing fun begin!



Dance Party with Nightshift!


Did someone order Taco Bell?

Yes! Jonathan’s groomsmen surprised him with his favorite late night snack- burritos!


Save the Last Dance


What a love-filled night to remember!
