Weddings: Joanna Scholtz & Ryan Weldon

On May 15th, Joanna and Ryan were married before 130 guests at St. Mary’s Church, where Jackie Kennedy Onassis’s wedding to John F. Kennedy took place.  Joanna donned a dress by Monique Lhuillier, and carried a bouquet of Lily of the Valley, delphinium blossoms, and stephanotis, rich with greenery. Her father, Peter Scholtz, whose family boasts a long history in Newport, walked her down the aisle.  The ceremony was followed by a reception at Castle Hill Inn, where guests enjoyed dinner, cake, and watched the couple share their first dance to “You Send Me” by Sam Cooke. The evening concluded with an afterparty at 41 North. The newlyweds plan to travel to South Africa for their honeymoon in September.
