Wedding date: September 8, 2012
Nina and Hans, both originally from Europe, have lived in Brookline, MA for many years. While falling in love with each other, they also fell for Newport, RI for its New England charm and international appeal. They spent many summer weekends strolling the streets and beaches of Newport, so it was a natural choice for their wedding.
Because of its dramatic setting on a cliff overlooking the ocean, as well as its impeccable hospitality, The Chanler was a perfect setting for an easy, yet chic soiree. The guests were a mix of family and friends from all over the world. A morning framed by dramatic and heavy clouds over the Atlantic Ocean turned into a sun-filled afternoon full of joy, love, and two “I do’s”.
