The Bohlin Weddings & Events provided the perfect backdrop for this stunning boho wedding. Tucked amidst elegant yachts, The Bohlin’s dock offers unobstructed views of the harbor and the iconic Newport Bridge. It has a laid-back ambiance, contrasting with the opulent gilded-age mansion venues nearby. The Bohlin was the ideal choice for Rachel and Ryan’s wedding.
The bride, along with her mother and sisters, chose the Newport Harbor Hotel to prepare for the day. Their room opened up to a grassy area and views of the water, where the bride shared a special first look with her father. Meanwhile, the groom prepared in a nearby Airbnb with the couple’s dog.
First Look at The Bohlin Weddings & Events
When it came time for the first look, the groom and their dog walked through downtown Newport to The Bohlin. In a picturesque scene, the couple shared a magical first look at The Bohlin’s docks. The couple’s golden retriever Ralph was mostly interested in chewing on his bone.
Newport Wedding Photos
After the first look, we took a wedding trolley over to Cliff Walk for wedding photos at the 40 Steps. The rugged cliffs and crashing waves provided an iconic Newport background for the photos.
Ceremony at The Bohlin Weddings & Events
Returning to The Bohlin, the couple exchanged vows on the dock, surrounded by a meticulously designed setting. An exquisite a-frame arbor adorned with pampas grass served as a stunning backdrop for the ceremony.
Under the elegant tent at The Bohlin, the evening unfolded with a celebration that would be remembered for years to come. Family and friends gathered to raise a glass and toast to the newlyweds’ happiness. The highlight of the night came during the bridesmaids’ speech when the bride’s sisters surprised everyone with a hilarious rendition of a Hamilton-inspired rap.
