This Providence Public Library Wedding was an elegant, black tie affair! The ladies were dressed in a beautiful shade of blue while the guys wore custom black and blue patterned suits and for a little fun, blue shark socks! Jessica’s gown was an ivory ballgown adorned with a gorgeous camel colored beaded belt and a delicate beaded sheer jacket. She wore blue Badgley Mischka shoes and carried a classic quilted Chanel purse to incorporate the color blue! To finish off her look she wore her mother’s veil and her grandmother’s earrings! As we were getting ready a package arrived for Jessica, it was a pearl necklace from Danny. <3

The couple married at St. Rocco’s church in Johnston, RI. This church not only was Jessica’s childhood church but her grandfather built the church and it’s parish! Every child in the family has been baptized, confirmed and married at this church. In honor of her grandfather, Jessica tied his wedding band around her bouquet.

After the ceremony we headed into the city of Providence for a few quick city shots. I found out that afternoon that Danny proposed to Jessica in a gondola at the very bridge we were taking photos at a year prior to the wedding! As we were taking photos one of the gondolas passed by and wouldn’t you know it was the same gondolier that was present at the engagement! After a few more photos and an awesome drone shot by Chris Walsh we went back to the library to take advantage of it’s grand architecture and gorgeous light. The stairway is by far my favorite spot but the stacks were a fun secret place to go!

My favorite part about this wedding was how the couple incorporated their jobs as math teachers into their wedding. The seating chart consisted of math equations and in order to find out what table you were sitting at you had to solve the equation. I thought that was so clever. The table numbers were pages from an old math booth with the number and a stamped silhouette placed on top. They also added infinity charms to their favors and had the cutest wall plaque made.

Congratulations to Jessica and Danny!

Kim and Jon are getting married this fall at the Squantum Association here in RI. We chose to have our session along the Charles in Boston as it’s a special place for the couple. Not only do they live in the area but it is where they spend most of their time together either running or biking. It was a beautiful evening with lots of warm golden light. Kim and Jon, I can’t wait for your October wedding!

While vacationing here in Newport one summer, Laura and Clarke stumbled upon Castle Hill Inn. Ever since then they knew they wanted to be married on it’s picturesque grounds. That day came, it went off with a bang and July 4th was the perfect day to have their white garden party wedding! Not only did the bridal party wear shades of white and gold but the couple had asked all their friends and family to arrive in their best summer whites. It was a sight to see and what a festive way to celebrate.

Laura wore her mother’s lace dress, just as it was in the 50’s. I loved the long lace sleeves and cuffs! Just as we were getting ready to go Clarke’s mother gave Laura a gift, her “something old”. In the box was a linen handkerchief with an embroidered N. The handkerchief also has embellishments from Clarke’s great great grandmother’s wedding gown which was worn in 1904! Clarke’s mother was given this handkerchief by her mother-in-law on her wedding day 37 years ago! What a great family heirloom.

The bridal party was a fun bunch, each wearing a shade of white and carrying a different bouquet of white flowers! I loved seeing the different selections and how they complimented their personalities. I also loved that we had time to explore the grounds of Castle Hill; The lighthouse, the gardens and Grace Kelly beach {a new favorite spot!}! The tent was gorgeous with three long farm tables covered in white luscious flowers, gold plates and touches of purple lavender. The couples table was amazing; draped in clematis and white roses. Around sunset we got lucky and the sun popped out giving us not only the most beautiful golden light but one of the best sunsets we have seen this year! The best part about having your wedding on July 4th in Newport …. Fireworks! This wedding ended with everyone watching a spectacular fireworks display with a delicious del’s in hand. Congratulations to Laura and Clarke!

Thank you to all the amazing vendors!
