Marisa and Josh’s Marble House Rehearsal Dinner

First of all, I have a thing for old mansions. Probably because they are mysterious and steeped in history, stories of fortunes, privilege and glamour. The Marble House in Newport, RI, is no exception. It was designed by the society architect Richard Morris Hunt as a summer cottage for the Vanderbilts. Therefore, it is an exceptional example of a Gilded Age mansion. As a result of the location perhaps, Marisa and Josh’s Marble House rehearsal dinner was definitely over the top. A true homage to the era of opulence. It was the opposite of a simple. Rather than choosing one or two of their great ideas, Marisa and Josh went for almost all of them!

Nothing Short of Exceptional

Due to the grand scale of the event, Elan Artists provided all kinds of immersive entertainment. A live “marble” statue greeted guests as they arrived. After dinner, for dessert there were “marble” cakes. To drink, everyone enjoyed a champagne tower. A live painter recorded the beauty as a painting. Most notably, everyone enjoyed in awe a Chinese Dragon and an opera singer! In addition, the florist’s choice of deep purple blooms made the flowers pop against the gold and black background of the Gold Room where dinner was held. It was an amazing evening and the perfect start to their wedding weekend.
