Last night’s episode of WEtv’s Platinum Weddings featured the Newport nuptials of Floridians Michelle Cassidy and John Bannon, a 4-day affair highlighting some of the most fashionable places and quintessential experiences in the City-by-the-Sea. Planned to perfection by Raina Dawn Dieterle, owner of Raina Dawn Events, the wedding took place at OceanCliff, preceded by a traditional clam bake at Eisenhower House. Showing off Newport’s beauty, the couple welcomed their guests to the City with a harbor cruise aboard the Schooner Aurora. A day before tying the knot, Michelle escaped to Castle Hill for a Bridesmaids’ Luncheon for an afternoon of champagne, laughter and tons of girl talk.
We applaud Michelle’s choice of a stunning Marisa gown, a strapless, ivory A-line made from multiple layers of torn silk which she modified for the reception by adding an exquisite detachable one-shoulder detail. By the end of the evening, the bride had changed into a second wedding gown with a ruched bodice and jeweled straps. To see the episode in its entirety, CLICK HERE.
