Ashley & Brian's OceanCliff Wedding | Newport, Rhode Island
The sun was shining, there was a light breeze coming off the bay and their wasn’t a single cloud in the sky. Ashley and Brian couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for their OceanCliff wedding in Newport, RI!
Ashley was looking to create a soft, romantic feel for her wedding which is why she chose to put her bridesmaids in the most beautiful grey gowns accented with pink and white flowers. The bouquets were made by the ever so talented Toni Chandler. They were filled with the most luscious peonies (My favorite!), hydrangea and tea roses. The flower girls were in the most adorable pink and cream tulle dresses. The gentlemen were looking very handsome in their classic black tuxedos.
Ashley and Brian opted to have a first look at the Elm’s Mansion which was the perfect backdrop! We then headed back to Oceancliff to finish up some photos and to get ready for the ceremony on the lawn. The couple said their heartfelt vows, kissed to seal the deal and then they were off to party the night away! Sweet Tooth and Sugar Babies provided the entertainment for the evening. They are absolutely amazing, I can not praise them enough! They had everyone and I mean everyone on the dance floor for the entire evening! Congratulations Ashley & Brian!!

DETAILS!! Who doesn’t love details? I love starting the wedding day shooting the brides details. It really gets the creative juices flowing! Ashley decided that she would use her grandmothers special rings as her “something blue.” I placed them on top of Ashley’s sash to give them some context and added her purse to the back to darken up the background and to add some bling. I always place the light source, the window, to the side whenever possible as it adds dimension and interest to the image.
