Emily and Alex Married: Redwood Library, Newport, RI

As avid book lovers, The Redwood Library was the perfect backdrop for Emily and Alex’s Newport wedding. It was a beautiful late fall day and the weather could not have been more perfect. I first met Emily and the girls at the beautiful Gilded Hotel just a block away from the Redwood Library. After doing some portraits at the hotel we walked the short block to meet Alex who was waiting patiently in the beautiful gardens behind the library, making for the perfect, intimate first look. We then took full advantage of the gorgeous day and headed to Bellevue Ave for some timeless portraits with the bridal party. Later, back at the library for an intimate ceremony followed by a wonderful dinner served by the amazing Blackstone caterer. Toasting and dining nestled among the books is certainly something special and unique to this gem of a venue; The Redwood Library. We even made some very special portraits that were very meaningful to both the bride and groom utilizing the artwork and books kept within those library walls. Very special.

Thank you Emily and Alex for having me. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness. Thank you so much for having me.

Joe and Rachel’s Providence Public Library Wedding

The Providence Public Library was the perfect backdrop for Rachel and Joe’s big day. Both English majors ,with an avid passion for books and literature.

I met Rachel and her beautiful bridesmaids at the Biltmore Hotel to start the day, while my amazing second shooter photographed the guys. We then set off to the library where Rachel and Joe share their first look, on the libraries epic staircase. The grand, timeless architecture of the library complimented Rachel’s stunning gown, which truly was a showstopper. The delicate lace cathedral train was absolutely breathtaking. Rachel and Joe’s kindness, love and sense of joy emintated throughout the day and radiates right through the photos. Despite the rain outside we stayed warm and dry inside the library as we took full advantage of all the wonderful photo opportunities. Rachel and Joe thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day. I wish you a lifetime of happiness.

Lauren and Mason get married: The Bohlin: Newport, Rhode Island

I first met Lauren and Mason at their engagement session this past summer, from the moment I met them I knew they were going to be so  much fun to work with. They were just so natural together and laid back and up for pretty much anything.

The day of their wedding, I met Lauren and her bridesmaid where they were getting ready, at the Viking Hotel in Newport, Rhode Island. Lauren was so calm and all smiles,  soaking it all in as the girls had their hair and make-up done. While we had been planning on doing a first look for quite some time, and tossed around different location ideas, ultimately Lauren and Mason left it up to me to choose their first look location. I am so grateful for their trust as I am certain we chose the most perfect location based on the weather and more importantly ‘light’ that day. Just a short a short trolley ride from the hotel we met Mason for their first look. It was absolutely perfect. We strolled around the streets and found quinitessentional Newport architecture and charm to compliment their timeless style. Then it was off to the ceremony. The ceremony was held at Kay Chapel, a quaint historic chapel that is now part of the Viking Hotel. After Lauren and Mason exchanged their vows in front of their family and friends, it was off the to celebrate at The Bohlin. Lauren and Mason joined the seaside cocktail hour as guests enjoyed perfect Newport views, warm breezes and quintessential new england food fare, such as lobster rolls, shrimp and DEL’S lemonade, a Rhode Island favorite.  As the sun began to dip behind the Newport Bridge, I knew we had to take full advantage of sun the drenched pier.  The Bohlin ( formerly the Newport Yachting Center) gets some of the most dramatic and downright breathtaking sunset in Rhode Island.  Luckily, Lauren and Mason were both up for more photos. After a romantic stroll on the docks at dusk, they were back to enjoy dinner and lots of dancing for an unforgettable evening.

Lauren and Mason, thank you fo trusting me to capture your most perfect day. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness together.

Karen and Pat’s Agawam Hunt Club Wedding

Karen and Pat had the most perfect June wedding at the picturesque Agawam Hunt Club in East Providence. Making this even more special was the fact that I have known Karen and Pat since high school, as they were one grade below me at Narragansett High School. Which mean that yes, Karen and Pat have also known eachother since childhood. Something you don’t see everyday as as wedding photographer. They have also kept a very close with the same group of friends over the years, and it truly is very special and pretty awesome.

While Pat and the guys played a round of golf to start the day, Karen and the girls enjoyed the  beautiful bridal suite at Agawam as they had their hair and makeup done. It was the perfect space to get ready in. The ladies, sipped champagne, relaxed and just enjoyed the morning. Once Karen was ready and into her stunning gown, the entire bridal party loaded into golf carts and we made our way to the first look.  What a fun way to get around! We found the most beautiful light for bridal party photos and were back in time for the onsite ceremony. Emotions were high as Karen’s brother walked her down the aisle. Karen and Pat were married by Karen’s a very close family friend, adding yet another layer of intimacy to this incredible special day. Karen carried the most beautiful bouquet, designed by the incredibly talented Rustic Roots Design. Not a dry eye in the place.  The bouquet wrapped delicately with material from Karen’s late mother, and a stunning locket attached in her honor.  After the ceremony guests enjoyed food and cocktails while mingling on the gorgeous lawn and patio at the country club. Once inside guests were wowed by the incredible decor, not a detail overlooked. After dinner guests danced the night away as the party really got started. DJ Ulysses ( who was also Karen and Pat’s beloved high school teacher) kept the dance floor packed the entire night. Karen and Pat, it was truly such an honor to be a part of your special day.  You are two of the warmest, funniest most genuine people I have the pleasure to know. I wish you a lifetime of happiness together.
