Carly and Ralph are getting married next year at the beautiful venue of Belle Mer! The couple wanted to have their engagement session in a place that was meaningful. Ralph grew up on Cape Cod and Carly has many memories of the area since she met Ralph. Their favorite beach to picnic and take their adorable dog Riley to was where we chose to take their photos. It was the perfect location with the most magnificent light. Enjoy!

Melissa & Nate’s intimate OceanCliff wedding was reminiscent of another era. Newport with all its history and culture has a special place in Melissa’s heart. She grew up summering at OceanCliff’s resort and exploring the area with its many historic landmarks. When she was planning her wedding she drew a lot of inspiration from the mansions’ turn of the century look and feel. The florals were fabulously done by Toni Chandler and were made up of soft pinks, incorporating peonies, dahlia’s, ranunculus and astilbe.

We started the day photographing the couple at two of the preservation society’s grandest mansions, The Elms & Rosecliff. One of my favorite touches which added to the “Gatsby” theme was the antique Rolls Royce! It was a great way to capture the essence of the era and it was a fabulous prop. After spending time in the beautiful gardens we went out to the rocks to capture Newport’s famous seascape.

Melissa & Nate were married on the back lawn of OceanCliff by Melissa’s uncle who is near and dear to her. Melissa’s maid of honor was her aunt and best friend while Nate was supported by his two brothers, one of which sang a beautiful song before the vows. After the ceremony everyone enjoyed cocktails on the patio while be serenaded by Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Ella Fitzgerald and the like. The guests were all given a guide book to the preservation society’s great homes when they got to their seat and their signing book was a beautiful coffee table book of the Newport Mansions. {Great Idea!} As the evening wore on the glow of candle light was so dramatic and romantic. Melissa & Nate, Congratulations!!

Vince proposed to Becky last week at sunset overlooking the bay from Castle Hill Inn‘s lighthouse! It was the most romantic thing I have ever seen. A theme through out their relationship has been purple flowers. Vince picked not only the perfect evening but the perfect season as there were purple flowers all along the rocks.

As the sun set, Vince got down on one knee and popped the question. Becky with her adorable smile said “YES!”. We took a few more photos as they enjoyed the moment and watched the sky glow a beautiful pastel pink. Congratulations Becky and Vince!

I was so excited when Alex and Peter’s Glen Manor wedding day finally arrived! I had met with them a year ago in NYC to do their engagement session and I fell in love with the vision of their wedding and I couldn’t wait to see it all come together!

The bride wanted an elegant and soft look to her wedding, starting with a base palette of creams and ivories and adding in soft pinks and peaches. I loved the lace textured tablecloths, topped with silver urns bursting with blooms and lots of golden candles. I loved the brides choice for her bouquet; a cascade of orchids, calla lilies and roses. It was so elegant and unique!

The wedding ceremony was filled with so much love and meaning. The two of the them wrote their vows, and let me tell you, there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd. Before the ceremony the two of them wrote “love letters” which were placed, during the ceremony, in a beautiful wooden box with a bottle of their favorite wine. That box was then locked and will not be opened until their 25th wedding anniversary where they will share their bottle of wine and read their letters. *AWE*. The rest of the evening was filled with yummy food, dancing and my favorite part, the hora. Peter and Alex, congratulations!!
