A Valentine's Day Wedding | Galentine's Celebration | Newport Wedding Photographer

I thought now would be a good time to get caught up on the blog as I kick off my 2019 season which is jam packed full of glorious weddings! This styled shoot collaboration was in my favorite seaside city of Newport, Rhode Island at Queen Anne’s Loft. The florals and decor were romantically designed in pinks and reds reflective of the holiday of love. Oh and that dress…was absolutely to die for! We all know I love a good blush dress and the feeling of romance in the air!

Scales and Shells Newport Rhode Island | Half Shell Bridal Shower

A bridal shower is such a fun time for couples! A brunch with friends, great food, and of course mimosas in the quaint seaside city of Newport. Our last shoot at Scales and Shells highlighted the upstairs, but today we are looking at the downstairs, called the Half Shell. Equipped with a private bar, lots of tables, colorful walls and big windows, the Half Shell is the perfect nook for any celebration!

Scales & Shells Newport Styled Rehearsal Dinner | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

Scales and Shells has a beautiful upstairs called UpScales which perfect for dinner and events such as this wedding rehearsal dinner! In perfect Newport wedding fashion, Scales and Shells is tucked in the downtown area of Thames Street right by the water. Up the stairs is a beautiful, bright and airy space with tables to seat 40 and a private bar. I photographed this event and all it’s details on a sunny morning where the light just sang! The food that came out was the most delicious, and I know because after working you better believe I was all about eating! For bar snacks they had olives, grissini and pistachios. Appetizers were mussels au gratin, cod, bacon and potato bites with dipping sauce, a rosemary and caramelized onion and gorgonzola pizza and a bibb salad. The main course featured swordfish with lobster and asparagus butter and pan seared cod with a warm tomato vinaigrette. Can you say YUM?! Desserts were the most adorable and Newport themed cookies from Newport Sweet Shoppe! I have to say, this was definitely one of the most delicious shoots I have had to date! And speaking of dates, guess who is being wined and dined there on Valentine’s Day?!

Bridal Styled Shoot | New England Wedding Photographer

Assembling a team of creative minds to partake in creating something beautiful is one of the best things about being a photographer! After finding the perfect place for a styled bridal shoot at Bancroft Castle in Worcester, Massachusetts, I knew it would only be perfect to enlist the help of my favorite model/ makeup artist Jenn Pierce, my friend Briel Delmonaco of Uniquely Chic Vintage Rentals (http://uniquelychicvintage.com/), and assistant (and next bridal model) Samantha Bourbeau, to create the perfect romantic and early 1900's vibe. I've been wanting to shoot an Bancroft Castle for a very long time, since I saw how beautiful it was there, and between the gorgeous furniture from Uniquely Chic, lovely light, awesome location, and stunning flowers from The Flower Pot (http://www.theflowerpotri.com/) I'd say my first bridal shoot was a success and I can't wait for the next one coming up in August! A huge thank you to everyone who made this vision come to life!
