I first met Jackie and Matt just about a year before their wedding. In our phone conversation, Jackie and Matt shared how much they loved the Newport area while they were temporarily living there for a year. When then stepped into the Ballroom at Rosecliff Mansion they knew right away, this is where they wanted to get married.
They both loved the idea of their wedding painting to capture a moment during their outdoor ceremony on the lawn. The view was spectacular from the marble staircase leading down to the lawn with an expansive water view.
As the sunset on their October wedding, the most beautiful pink and coral colors, blanketed the skyline. But that’s not all, according to the farmer’s almanac, the bright orange and red hunter’s moon made its debut just as cocktail hour began. Could this scene get any more stunning!
The ballroom filled with their guests eager to celebrate the night away with the couple. The first dance was a sweet and tender moment as they gracefully moved across the dance floor. These two sweethearts put their mark in history in one of the most beautiful homes in Newport.
As I was wrapping up for the night, Jackie and Matt joined me at the canvas, excited to see the progress and even added their touch to the canvas. Friends and family gathered around to observe the progress and engage in light conversation.
And of course, my favorite part was adding in the amazing welcome sign that Matt and his dad made! It was the perfect welcoming touch.
Jackie and Matt it was a pleasure working with you both to create this heirloom painting and wishing you a lifetime of happiness together.
