A Festive Closing Dinner for the 2016 Newport Symposium

From the serious, scholarly seminars of the Preservation Society's "Inspired by the Sea" Symposium 2016, participants and experts gathered together at Newport's The Breakers for a closing evening dinner party.

The Vanderbilt mansion, overlooking the sea, rang with conversation and laughter, and the Symposium was heralded as a great success. 

 

Cocktails on the terrace, dinner in the atrium and dining room were simply relaxed and elegant.
