Anelise & Zain | The Chanler Wedding | Newport, RI 

Congratulations to Anelise and Zain on their recent wedding celebration! This summer, they orchestrated a truly elegant garden affair at the Chanler, exchanging vows in a celebration inspired by their chosen venue and their rich family and cultural heritage. Anelise and Zain poured their hearts into every detail of their Newport wedding, infusing it with creativity and love.

Right from the outset of planning, Anelise and Zain envisioned infusing their elegant affair with a touch of whimsy. Inspired by soft pastel hues like pink, pale blue, cream, and butterfly yellow, they incorporated these colors into their floral arrangements, invitation suite, and the attire of their bridal party. The couple exchanged vows on the Chanler’s picturesque lawn, overlooking the same waters they had sailed on with their guests the day prior. Their tented reception was a vision of beauty, adorned with block-printed tablecloths designed by Anelise and sourced from India as a nod to Zain’s heritage, and brimming with lush floral displays. Anelise and Zain’s meticulous planning ensured that their event seamlessly flowed throughout the Chanler’s stunning property.

Anelise and Zain, your wedding day was a testament to your individuality and love for each other. Every detail was carefully curated, and it was an honor to capture the magic of your special day. Congratulations once again on your elegant wedding at the Chanler!

The Chanler Weddings

The Chanler, nestled in Newport, Rhode Island, is a luxurious oceanfront hotel overlooking Easton’s Beach. Its breathtaking outdoor landscapes and coastal views make it a sought-after venue for Newport weddings. Couples are drawn to its stunning surroundings, providing ample opportunities for breathtaking wedding portraits against the backdrop of Rhode Island’s beauty.

A Tip for Our Couples… 

For couples planning their special day, consider the importance of your getting-ready space. Anelise opted for the Renaissance Room at the Chanler, a space flooded with natural light and vibrant colors thanks to its abundance of windows. With its spacious layout and adjoining rooms, it provided a serene and clutter-free environment for Anelise to prepare and share intimate moments with her loved ones. Having two spaces for preparations not only ensures clutter-free portraits but also allows for surprises and a stress-free environment for everyone involved. So, if feasible, consider arranging for dual preparation spaces to enhance your wedding day experience.
