Our Top 5 Favorite Weddings of 2014!
As a tradition, one of our favorite things to do here at Newport Wedding Glam on New Year’s Eve is to spend some time as a team going down memory lane and reliving the high (and sometimes not so high) points of the year we’ve shared together. Although every day of 2014 wasn’t perfect, we’ve definitely had an amazing year full of wonderful things — from learning how to grow with our readers (the “Glam’ers”) to having the privilege to connect with great wedding vendor talents around Newport to being able to share loads of inspiration shoots and real weddings with Newport brides-to-be like you! With all of the great things that have come our way in 2014, we’re beyond excited to dive into the new year and make this next year even better than the last. But, before we leave 2014 behind entirely, we decided it was only right to share one last bit of inspiration with you all by taking a look back at our all-time favorite weddings of the 2014 season. So, before you pull out your champagne glasses and clink to the new year, join us one last time in 2014, and start your year off with a whole lot of pretty!
John & Jessica
John and Jessica’s Newport wedding was the epitome of romance, and, you know us, you know that we can never get enough of a wedding full of true love. And, if the couple’s clear happiness to say “I do” wasn’t enough to make this day one of our favorites — the glamorous details, such as the bride’s sparkly gold shoes and the stunning pink florals, definitely locked in this wedding as one of the most memorable of 2014!

Shawn & Antonieta
This next wedding was all about bringing to life the couple’s vision of having a wedding day that not only reflected their roots and their mutual love of travel, but that was “green” and environment-friendly in every way possible totally stole our hearts. She wore a vegan silk dress, they made invites our of recycled paper, and served a locally-harvested, farm-fresh meal to their friends and family from around the globe! But, that’s not all…the adorable bride and groom also wowed us with their gorgeous fall decor and their lovely red and orange color palette. See the full wedding here.

Shaun & Stephanie
This traveled-themed wedding is packed full of maps, suitcases, and vintage props galore, which is exactly why it made our list for one of the top weddings of the year.
