Dave and Jessica were married at the Glen Manor House Labor Day weekend! They are originally from Connecticut but have since made a new home in Oregon. When planning wedding photo locations, Jessica wanted to make sure that we had lots of beautiful ocean images to get the classic Newport feel but she also wanted to add in a little country. Jessica grew up with horses and the country is a little nod to their new home in Oregon. We found the greatest spot on the island where there was tall grass, wooden fences and wild flowers.

The couple got ready in Dave’s parents neighborhood which was right down the street from the church. Jessica loved the idea of getting ready and walking to her ceremony! It was so much fun! The ceremony was held in the beautiful St. Mary’s Parish, the same church where JFK and Jacqueline Bouvier were married 62 years ago this month. After the ceremony we headed seaside for some shots on the rocks with the couple then on to the fields. The bridal party was so much fun to work with and ladies, thank you for walking on the rocks with your heels! After we explored the beach we headed over to Glen Manor!

The couple wanted a soft, romantic feel to their reception. The flowers were beautifully done in soft pinks, creams and mauve. The couple wanted to bring a piece of their new home to Newport so they named their tables after Oregon wineries. My favorite moment of the evening had to have been the surprise Patriots Groom’s cake. Dave was totally shocked when the cake came out. Go Patriots! Congratulations Jessica & Dave!

Jessica and Dave were married a few weeks at the beautiful Glen Manor House in Portsmouth, RI. While Jessica was here wedding planning, I took her on a little “photo drive” to determine what locations we would want to use on the wedding day. Her and Dave instantly fell in love with the famous Castle Hill Lighthouse. The rocks, the crashing waves and Dave has a thing for lighthouses.

We didn’t have enough time to make the drive over to the lighthouse on the big day but we did have time the night before during Golden hour to snap some shots before the rehearsal! I am so happy that we did, it was a beautiful evening! The fog was starting to roll in creating this beautiful warm haze around them.

*Side Note: Go Jess! She walked in her heels out on the rocks and only needed help once getting to a very tricky far off rock. :) Stay tuned, their wedding day post is coming up next!

The couple lives in Boston and thought it would be complimentary to their historic Newport wedding to have their engagement session in their hometown. We started on a historic street in Beacon Hill then made our way down into the Public Gardens. It was a beautiful evening and I can not wait to photograph their wedding day!

Chris and Marley’s intimate Vanderbilt Grace wedding was so classic and elegant.The couple chose the beautiful mansion to get married in as it was the same place they got engaged. Chris took Marley on a getaway to Newport for her birthday but he also included a ring into the celebration!

Marley’s special touches were the flowers she chose to incorporate into their wedding. She grew up with hundreds of hydrangeas surrounding the house she grew up in. That’s how she chose the color for the bridesmaids dresses as well as using the flower in her table arrangements. The ladies carried calla lily’s because they were the first flowers Chris ever gave her. What’s sweet is the bouquet that Chris gave Marley during their engagement included white roses, Marley’s favorite, hydrangeas and callas!

My favorite detail from the day had to be Marley’s dress! It was so elegant yet still playful. The full body of the skirt and the ruffles looked ah-mazing! I also loved how the cake was decorated to reflect the ruffles of her dress as well as mimic flower petals. Just stunning!

We started the day off by taking photos on the beautiful grounds of the Chateau Sur Mer. The trees, the architecture and the stone walls were so beautiful to work with! After we played in the trees there we headed oceanside to grab some photos of the incredible views Newport has to offer. The ceremony was held in the beautiful european courtyard of the Vanderbilt. I absolutely loved the intimate feeling of the ceremony as well as the ivy and brick as the backdrop. Cocktails were held on the famous roof deck of the Vanderbilt. We were graced with a gorgeous sunset that evening. Dinner and dancing were held back down in the courtyard with music provided by an unbelievable band. Chris and Marley it was a pleasure photographing your beautiful wedding! Congratulations. <3
