Championship Celebration... Newport, RI

This past weekend I had the opportunity to work with an incredible couple, not for their wedding but for a really important, special occasion. To celebrate a championship season with the Pittsburgh Penguins and winning the Stanley Cup, Mark Eaton and his family and friends had a reason to throw a party!

It was the perfect summer day from start to finish in Newport at the lovely Belle Mer (one of my favorite destinations) and we had an amazing team to collaborate with. It is a day I know I will always remember and one that I had such fun planning.

Color Story: (inspired by the Penguins team colors we accented the space with yellow and black.
