Newport Rhode Island's Famous Mansions

Newport Rhode Island Home to the Great Gatsby Mansions:

One of the latest comebacks: The Gatsby Era or More Formally the 1920's

The Roaring Twenties were viewed as a tremendously prosperous decade for America.  From 1920-1929 the nation's wealth just about doubled.  With more money it allowed people to gain a pursuit of pleasure, having a little extra cash brought along a major social change.  Extravagant parties were thrown and the Jazz age came forward full swing.  The Great Gatsby portrays this social life through many of the character's events and honestly who doesn't want to be able to just enjoy a good time with some great company?

The Great Gatsby is known for these extraordinary events featured in both the book and following movies.  Everyone lives for these fulfilling times and forget about the stress that money brings.  The 1974 movie was filmed using one of the breath-taking mansions, Rosecliff in Newport, Rhode Island.  The construction for this mansion completed in 1902 from the famous architect Stanford White.  Stanford White was famous for his homes of the Guilded Age known for the lavish palaces, all the jewels, and the business leaders earning mass fortunes.  Rosecliff was modeled after the Grand Trianon, the garden of retreat of the French Kings.  This was built for Nevada silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs which she herself hosted lavish parties and various entertainment.

Gatsby Inspired Weddings have seemingly been a great new thing.  From the entire theme, fashion, food, drinks, even venue; it seems to be what people now are dreaming of.  The 1920's decade theme was so upbeat and fresh making it definitely a decade to relive.

Rhode Island mansion weddings are fitting for the unique and diverse needs of the nontraditional wedding.  The sights alone give off that romantic feel that everyone wishes for.  Whether you want an inside ballroom wedding, an outside beach event, or even both put together; Newport Rhode Island truly has it all.

For the extremists, you can even climb down the rocky mountains and when you reach the bottom swim in the ocean from there.  For the nature lovers, the beauty and openness of the area is really very suiting.  Lastly, for the brides who are quite unsure of what type of wedding she wants to have, this is a perfect spot to start if you really want to WOW your guests.
