Hi everyone! I’m a newbie 🙂 and a Newport bride. I live in NY and my fiance lives in Boston. We’re getting married on 5/22/10 at the Island House at Belle Mer. We still have a long way to go!
Right now, we’re looking into bakers. I love cakes so I am so excited to meet with the bakers for some tasting ! So far, we’re meeting with Sin Desserts, Corby Cakes n Cookies, Diane’s Delectables, and Konditor Meister. Any feedback on these bakers would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Aylee Bits! Welcome and congrats!! I’m also planning from the NYC area, so I know what its like to be planning from a distance. I saw that you are considering Sin Desserts. We are using Jennifer (from Sin) to make cupcakes for our wedding. The samples she gaves us were amazing and she’s been great to work with! Our wedding is in May, so most of the planning is done. I’d be happy to share any information (or pitfalls) I have, so please let me know if I can be of any help!

Thank you RIbride! It’s nice to hear about Jennifer from Sin. I’m also in contact with her. I’m not enjoying planning from a distance. Fortunately my fiance lives in Boston so when I’m up in Boston, we just drive to Newport for a day and go back.

At RIBride- my sister is using Konditor Meister, I went on the tastign and their flavros are delicious, especially the banana filling! Their prices were a lot more reasonable than I expected, too!

I live in Los Angeles, but grew up in RI and am getting married in Newport in August 2010! Planning a wedding long distance is SO hard.
My ceremony is at St. Barnabas in Portsmouth at 2pm, but then our reception isn’t until 6pm at The Officers Club. I am so worried about that 3 hour chunk of time in between. Any suggestions of where to send my guests?
Also, my photographer is a friend from L.A. so she is not too familiar with picture spots. Any ideas of places to go for the wedding party for pictures? I’ve heard Second Beach and The Elms so far. Does anyone know if you need to reserve picture time at The Elms? What about a picture spot if it rains?
