Little Compton Wedding In September
Little Compton, RI   |   September, 2011   |   Attraction

"Newport is about a half hour drive from the Little Compton/Westport area but well worth a day trip. Home of the famous Newport Mansions, Newport is a seaport town with cobblestone streets, great shopping, restaurants, pubs and the Cliff Walk. If you have an extra day or are planning on turning our wedding weekend into a vacation, definitely head to Newport!"

"Rosecliff Mansion is part of the Newport Preservation Society and is one of the larger mansions on the Cliff Walk. Completed in 1902, this property was owned by the Oelrichs who made their fortune from the Comstock silver lode in Nevada, one of the richest finds in history. Rosecliff has also been home to many Hollywood films, most recently Amistad and True Lies, where "Ah-nold" Schwarzenegger and Jaime Lee Curtis filmed their Tango at the end of the movie. Also filmed here was the Robert Redford/Mia Farrow flick, The Great Gatsby."

Chris & Sarah's Wedding
Narragansett   |   October, 2007   |   Attraction

"Beechwood was built in 1851 for a New York City merchant named Daniel Parrish; the architects were Andrew Jackson Downing and Calvert Vaux. William Backhouse Astor, Jr., purchased the mansion in 1881, and it became the social center for New York Society for twenty-five years of the Gilded Age. William B., as his wife called him, was the grandson of John Jacob Astor, the German immigrant who made himself the richest man in America by investing in fur trading and real estate. As recent as 1999, he was listed as the fourth-wealthiest American ever (Microsoft's Bill Gates is fifth). The Astors hired architect Richard Morris Hunt to create an atmosphere at Beechwood that would be worthy of America's finest citizens. The family invested two million dollars in the renovations. Caroline Astor presided over countless social activities during the eight weeks each year she visited Beechwood. The highlight of every summer season was Mrs. Astor's Summer Ball. Mrs. Astor retired from social life in 1906. She lived quietly until her death in 1908. After his mother's death, John Jacob Astor IV divorced his first wife Ava Lowell Willing. In 1911 he married a much younger woman, Madeleine Talmadge Force. Their ceremony was held in the ballroom at Beechwood. After the service the couple headed to Europe to escape the gossip surrounding their union. Unfortunately, they were returning to New York on the RMS Titanic when the ship met its fate. Madeleine, who was five months pregnant, survived, but her husband, Titanic's wealthiest passenger, did not."
