Inspired Peacock Theme at Astor's Beechwood!

We had such fun working with Rudy and Meaghan - taking their vision of a peacock theme and running with it. Our paisley projections on the terrace walls creates a HOT backdrop for this cool photo. It's so great when the Bride and Groom aren't afraid of using rich, strong color.

Here's they are on their Big Day - after months and months in the planning:

Great shot catches the natural light by the ornate window....

Our lighting kicks the party into high gear. We used architectural uplighting to enhance the ballroom - and the terrace literally "glowed" with saturated color!  Our sheer drapes added softness and romance. It was amazing after the Newport sun set over the Bay.

The peacock theme continued in the tented lounge where guests enjoyed cigars and dessert. Our enhancement of the multicolored ceiling with light - and spotlighting of the focal floral design - created such great ambience it was tough to tear guests away at the stroke of midnight!

  1. We attended the wedding of Rudy and Meaghan and it was truly a beautiful wedding. It was a fantasy wedding. We will probably never go to another wedding as beautiful as this one. Meaghan and Rudy are beautiful also, inside and out.

  2. Viv's comment is so true! As a wedding photographer, I see over 30+ weddings a year. Meaghan & Rudy's guests were totally WOWED!! I overheard guest after guest speaking with M+R saying things like, "This is the most beautiful & elaborate wedding I've ever been to!" Ormonde Productions truly brings that celebrity feel to anyone's wedding!
