New England wedding

Roger Williams Park Casino Wedding | Jeanette + Mike | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

There are a few times in your life when you meet someone truly special that encourages you and makes you feel like you can take on the world. That’s how I always feel leaving Jeanette’s Yin Yoga class! I have been doing yoga for some time now, but as a teacher she is just amazing! I have some commitment issues with fitness classes but hers I would never miss! Before class we would sit and have some girl chat, and she would tell me about Mike and his amazing boys and how she couldn’t wait to have a family with them. So I was super excited and honored when he popped the question and she asked me to photograph their wedding!

The night before their November wedding we were supposed to get a dusting to an inch of snow. Well that turned into SIX inches (I measured!) and along with the Fall colors remaining the grounds of Roger Williams Park outside the Casino were just gorgeous! After an intimate wedding ceremony inside the Casino, Jeanette and Mike were adventurous to run outside with me just before sunset to capture some unique “snowliage” couples portraits. I was so happy to be able to capture this special time in their lives as they get married and are expecting their first little boy together. Congratulations Jeanette and Mike!!

Roseland Park Woodstock Connecticut Wedding | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer | Amber + Donald

On the shores of Roseland Lake in Woodstock, Connecticut on the perfect Fall day, with a reception in an adorable barn decked with sunflowers and the most amazing barbecue I have ever tasted, Amber and Donald said I do! As a New England girl, I’m a total fan of barn weddings and country music. Fall is my favorite season and when the leaves start changing I’m ready to go hiking and take my yearly trip to New Hampshire.

Amber glowed with excitement in her gorgeous flowing gown, perfect flower crown and rose gold halo custom made ring. After sharing a “faux” first look around the corner of the red barn, seeing the look on Donald’s face as his bride made her way down the aisle on the arms of her parents was priceless. The generations of family and great grandparents there to witness their marriage just made this wedding all the more perfect. Congratulations Amber and Donald, I wish you many more adventures as you share a life of love!

Providence Fall Engagement Session | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer | Danielle + Kyle

I knew the city of Providence was special to Danielle and Kyle as soon as I heard that they not only had their Spring of 2019 wedding planned in the city, but also wanted their engagement session to take place there! Danielle and Kyle met in Providence, on the East Side, so it seems fitting that their engagement be celebrated with the city skyline in the background!

Danielle is a teacher and loves running, Kyle coaches football so naturally they are at home outside. They love the sea and love the city so we started in Prospect Park and walking around the neighborhood, then moved down to India Point Park for a walk by the river. I’m so excited for their Providence Public Library this coming April! Congratulations Danielle and Kyle!

The Dorrance Wedding Providence | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer | Melissa + Charlie

When Pringles are passed around to guests at a wedding, joyfully erupting with laughter during a speech, you know there is a good story behind it!

I met Melissa when we worked together in corporate and became lunch buddies and friends. Melissa and Charlie moved to Rhode Island from New York City for work and to start their lives close to his family. Before they met, Charlie was infamously dubbed the “Snackman of NYC” after breaking up a subway fight without violence, hence the Pringles!

The timeless elegance of The Dorrance, and Melissa’s classic beauty and family heirloom ring made this wedding a timeless affair. After sharing a first look outside, we headed over the the Arcade for family portraits and into an alleyway Melissa found full of rusted metal beams and graffiti! When I say I go anywhere for my couples I mean it, so amazing alleyway it was!

Congratulations Melissa and Charlie! I’m so glad we became friends and I wish you both the happiest of ever afters!

Nappatree Point Westerly | Melissa + Kevin | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

The threat of rain and summer thunderstorms never deters me from being inspired or excited on a wedding day or inspirational shoot. While rain threatened off shore and over Connecticut, it brought some amazing clouds and a breeze to Nappatree point in Westerly. The area is a beach and conservation area that stretches out in a little peninsula at the very tip of Rhode Island. It is full of luscious tall grass, birds and wildlife, an amazing jetty, and a harbor of sailboats. What more could a Rhode Island girl want? Actually, maybe puppies, but they were there too, and we just couldn’t let one by without letting this doggy loving duo show them some love! Stunning florals and a lace shift dress made this the perfect bohemian elopement affair. After the sun hid behind the clouds for good, we enjoyed some amazing gelato and headed out just as a thunderstorm (and flash flood warning) broke out, but gave us some amazing sky before. Summer may be nearly over, but I’ll always love a couple that wants to run away to the beach to elope! #willstopforpuppies
