Belly Dancers and a Beautiful Beginning | A Belle Mer Wedding Story

Stephanie and Nick.  It’s not often you meet a couple who have synergy down to an artform. From the moment we met in my office last winter, I could tell they were the type of couple who would support each other through anything.  Loyalty is an intangible quality, but sometimes you can just FEEL it.  I knew I wasn’t the only one who could feel their connection when Stephanie’s dad’s wedding-day speech began with, “Nicholas Nardone, if I could pick anyone to marry my daughter, it would be you.”  You don’t many compliments grander than that.

Their Belle Mer wedding is one for the books: a moody, fall day on the water in Newport set the scene as eternity began for the Nardone family.  A blending of Italian and Lebanese traditions complete with belly dancers for a little extra entertainment.  I love how much attention they BOTH put into the details of their wedding day, ensuring their guests were well cared for and the ambiance was curated throughout the day.  You can see all the fruits of their labor and love in today’s blog feature at Newport’s most prestigious venue, Belle Mer.
