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!

Charter Oak Country Club Wedding | Hudson Massachusetts | Haley + A.J.

Good morning friends, do I have a special wedding to share with you today!

Haley and A.J.’s wedding was the perfect day to kick off our Fall season. It was on a beautiful day where the rain stayed perfectly south of Charter Oak Country Club so Haley and A.J. could have the best day ever! A girl after my own heart with pastel florals and details, to their adorable customized golf balls (since they are avid golfers), to the smiles and love from their family and friends.

Haley’s father had tears of joy in his eyes as he welcomed his new son to his family, a moment he had been waiting a long time for. His smile lit up the entire room, bringing those tears of joy to everyone else who was there to celebrate the union. Haley’s father said that, while Haley taught figure skating that she should never date a hockey player. Well they met while he coached and played hockey and her Dad got a good laugh out of how perfect they are for one another as he welcomed A.J. to the family and everyone celebrated their love!

Haley and A.J. you two are definitely something special and I am so thrilled to have captured your wedding day, and I loved getting to spend more time with the two of you as you celebrate your love! I will always remember being in the car with you guys, freezing after our super fun engagement session, talking about how bad we all wanted pizza and beer! I hope you love these memories as much as I did capturing them!

The Haversham Wedding | Michelle + Brian | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

I met Michelle last Halloween when I started a new freelance graphic design job and we bonded almost instantly over our complete and utter obsession with Harry Potter. When I say fans, we are some special kind of fans! When I went to the Wizarding World in March for the first time, I legitimately CRIED upon entering Diagon Alley! On top of that, she was super excited because she was engaged and planning her wedding for 2017 (You can see their adorable engagement session here)! Unfortunately for business Alicia, she already had a wedding photographer booked, but still wanted to do engagement photos with us, and we were guests at her big day full of Harry Potter details (wait until you see the card Brian made Michelle that looks like the Marauders Map!) and I got to shoot the two of them getting ready! Thank you for having me be a part of your magical day, Michelle and Brian! Mischeif Managed!

Cozy Home Engagement Session | Victoria and Brandon

There's no place like home, home is where the heart is, you always lead me back home...there are a million sayings that revolve around love and being home with your family. Victoria and Brandon spent so much time and love on renovating their beautiful home that they couldn't think of a better place to share their engagement session! From all of the charming details, including a super sweet sparkley wedding count down (which has since lost some numbers!) they were perfectly at home and proud of their hard work. Thank you for inviting me into your home Victoria and Brandon, I can't wait to capture your wedding next year!

Rhode Island and Cape Cod Wedding Photographer | Kristin and John | The Lighthouse Inn

I'm always up for an adventure and exploring new places, a wedding by the sea as summer ends was a wonderful way to end the season. Kristin and John were married right by the ocean at the Lighthouse Inn in Dennis, MA  (Cape Cod). Since they love being by the ocean this venue was perfect, from its seaside charm and beautiful lighting. The cabins for the couple to get ready in were just adorable, it would be so much fun to stay here by the sea! We decided last minute to do a first look, and the docks by the ocean made the perfect backdrop for this as well as family and bridal party photos. Congratulations Kristin and John, I had a blast capturing your big day!

Rhode Island Wedding Photographer | Travels to Alyson's Orchard!

Though I usually shoot in Rhode Island and nearby Connecticut and Massachusetts, this gorgeous wedding at Alyson's Orchard was completely worth the drive! Nestled amongst rolling hills and fields, the orchard is lovely from inside to out. Jess and Will's wedding was country themed from the tractor rides to everyone wearing cowboy boots, and I just loved it! The ceremony was held by the lake and the reception in the airy hall. The bride and bridesmaids even surprised everyone with a choreographed dance as they were introduced. Now that's my kind of shindig! Congrats Jess and Will!
