The Pearls in Newport, RI

Monday, November 30, 2009

As A Newport Wedding Planner, one of my favorite B&Bs to stay at and that I recommend to all my clients and their guests is The Pearls of Newport, RI!!

It is the perfect spot if you want to take over all of their properties with your family & bridal party or just even one of the properties...it is like having your own home to stay in with fabulous service!

They also are so extremely accommodating to wedding parties...they can do rehearsal dinners, wedding brunches and can assist you with flowers and the little details of the event.  Ray & Lisa will take great care of you and it is literally steps from town and everything that is happening in Newport, RI.

When you wake up and roll downstairs be prepared for one of Ray's gourmet breakfasts...delicious!

Be sure to call The Pearls when planning you Newport, RI wedding!

Feel free to comment and share with others about your wonderful experience at The Pearls...

Memories of my Colorado Rockies.

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

I recently came across this wedding on Style Me Pretty blog. With the first days of winter only one month away this time of year I really miss my college days! Having just spent a weekend in Chicago with some of my Boulder crew...I can't help but think back on my CU (University of Colorado at Boulder) days. Had the time of my life...there is nothing like the "Boulder Connection"!  

After graduation I headed to Vail/Beaver Creek and lived in Avon (see below!!) and was a snowboard instructor at Beaver Creek. Those five years bring back such fond memories of the winter and with Ski season upon us...I truly miss my home away from home- Colorado!  

This wedding I stumbled on took my breath away and makes me so very nostalgic. I long for those snowy days, driving in the mountains, ratcheting down my bindings and hitting the slopes for a powder day, curling up by a fire with a hot toddy apres ski...oh how I love those Colorado Rockies

So you must call me if you are looking to have a winter wonderland wedding in the mountains...A Raina Dawn Events office in Vail, CO is on the mind ; )





We just had to follow-up yesterday’s feature at Devil’s Thumb Ranch with another of James Christianson’s Colorado weddings … a wintery wonderland that left me in awe.
Katherine and Grant were married in November at the Beaver Creek Chapel in Avon, Colorado. Their reception was held at the Timber Hearth Grille in Cordillera, above Beaver Creek. I suppose when you plan a November wedding in Colorado you might expect snow, but this is just breathtaking. Looking at these photographs, it’s hard to believe Katherine was even chilly! {She found the vintage stole at a thrift shop.}
And what winter party would be truly complete without s’mores …

Back from an amazing weekend in Chicago...what a fabulous time!! I was asked to be the Godmother of the son of my very dear friends from college, so Guy & I took a trip out to the Windy City for the baptism and to spend time with great friends!

On the way, Guy had a meeting in the burbs so he dropped me off at a mall near by to kill some time...perfect ; )

I stumbled upon one of my favorite stores ZGallerie.  I was so sad when they closed down a number of their stores on the east cost...and of course was wedding "Inspired." by these items when I was there...and I love that you can Register at ZGallerie!!

LOVED this candle and it smelled great...adorable bridal shower gift!

Cute ; )
