I thought I’d share a few pictures from a recent wedding in Newport, RI at Belle Mer. Occasionally I help Michelle from Something Sweet by Michelle deliver cakes when they have a very busy weekend. This was one of those occasions. The cake was white fondant covered with a vine of cymbidium orchids cascading down the front. The orchids are made of gumpaste then lightly shaded to look like the real thing. I love how the top of the vine extends over the top tier of the cake.
I also took a few pictures of Belle Mer to show how the design of the cake fit into the overall feel of the wedding. Below is a picture of the centerpieces created by Broadway Florist Designs of Newport. They were white dendrobium orchids in tall sea blue glass vases which I’m sure looked beautiful during the reception with candle light glowing around them.
This is what guests see when they first enter Belle Mer. It’s hard to see in the photo but this fireplace, as well as the large one in the ballroom are covered in mother-of-pearl tiles. It’s really interesting to see the different ways the white on white color scheme is used in each room. It must be a fun space for event designers to work with because it is so modern and neutral.
