Cindy and Ben at Astors Beechwood Mansion in Newport - Photos by Trish

After much delay (due to Blogger troubles) we finally bring you this wedding from last weekend!!! It was a lovely evening at The Astors for Cindy and Ben with 55 of their closest people looking on as they tied the knot after 15 years! They first dated in high school!

Another gorgeous arrangement by Joyce at Stoneblossom...

Astors is such a neat place, lots of ornate details. It's just small enough that it's cozy and really fancy.

Awaiting Cindy's arrival, she actually snuck in the side door!

They used these cute silhouettes from when they were children on their printed pieces. Great swirls too!

Here's our handsome groom waiting by the fireplace for his bride to arrive.

The ceremony was not until after dark, so photos were all inside, but I got this shot so that they could remember their location.

Cindy had great helpers. This dress was killer.

Yowza! Cindy looked amazing!

What's not to like about teal blue Manolo Blaniks?!

A little nervous but beautiful!

Ben is sporting the conservative look on the outside and the rock look on the inside.

The ballroom was so beautiful.

Frank Camara was the officiant.

Cindy's friend since grade school, John, the Man of Honor played a beautiful song on the piano during the ceremony.

Then the dashed upstairs after the ceremony.

They were so excited to finally be married! Cindy was a bit teary.

Not the most exciting shot, but such a great classic!

This on the other hand is way more interesting. One of my absolute favorites!

Nothing wrong with smooching in the foyer, lots of smooching!

Each table number was an important year to them, very cool idea.

Fabulous catering by Morin's.

The first dance.

Then they had the cutest wedding party dance to Estelle, a fun dance song. It was so fun!

Ben gave a lovely toast to his new bride, and he had everyone clap for his 'hot wife.' So cute!

This piece in her hair was so amazing, very vintage.

Mother of the bride, a dancing maniac! Isn't she cute as a button?!

Each guest got to take home a little box of sweets, yummy!

They also had a ColdStone Creamery buffet!

This is their 'snuggle' pose, more lovin' in the foyer!

These are my other favorites of the day, so cool!
