Stacey and Travis' Wedding || Kirkbrae Country Club || Lincoln, RI

Stacey and Travis’ wedding day was filled with love and tons of family traditions. Their day started with Stacey’s family and friends helping her get ready with the most beautiful set up. There were balloons and decor celebrating their wedding day and getting her excited for all that was to come.

One of the first things that happened that day was the exchanging of gifts. Stacey opened a few gifts from Travis, including a garter that had a Lily Pulitzer look to it. Travis opened a few gifts from Stacey including a few items celebrating their wedding date.

Perhaps the absolute cutest thing I saw that day was that Stacey and Travis exchanged notes back and forth from their different hotel rooms. These two were just so excited to see each other and be around each other in any way they could that day. This led to the most interesting first look that I have done so far. Stacey really wanted to see Travis before she walked down the aisle to calm her nerves but Travis really wanted that moment. So we had Travis blindfolded so that Stacey could see him but he wouldn’t see her before she walked down the aisle.

Stacey and Travis had a traditional catholic mass, and then after the recessional, they celebrated another family tradition. These two started their married life together by cutting a ribbon right outside the church to officially walk into their new married life together.

After the ceremony we grabbed some bridal party portraits in a local park and then headed over to start another special family tradition. Stacey and Travis stopped to take a photo at the exact same tree where her mom and dad took a photo on their wedding day. From there we went over to the reception site, Kirkbrae Country Club, for more photos and to start off their cocktail hour. This group of family and friends were having so much fun by the time we got there, and after a few quick photos on the golf course with Stacey and Travis, they joined the fun.

The intros were amazing and then Stacey and Travis started their first dance, which by the way was another favorite moment of mine. These two were adorable, and then the song changed into her parents’ wedding song and they shared the dance with the two of them. This is definitely what I loved about Stacey and Travis’ wedding day, incorporating so many different family traditions that made it into such a special day.

There were then some amazing speeches by the MOHs and Best Men, and then the fun dancing started off after dinner. Immediately the kids at the wedding started it off and then everyone else got onto the dance floor, kicking off Stacey and Travis’ marriage with an awesome celebration.

Congratulations again Stacey and Travis, it was such a fun and beautiful day!!

Nansis and Alex's Wedding || Providence, RI

I arrived at the Biltmore Hotel in mid-June to meet Nansis and her ladies to a tiny bit of drama. One of the flower girls had just dislocated her arm. It wouldn’t be a wedding if something didn’t go wrong. I assured Nansis that things like this always happen and the whole crew of her family and friends were amazing with assuring her niece that she would be all right. Despite her arm being dislocated, after a quick trip to Urgent Care, the flower girl was in amazing spirits the rest of the day.

The ladies had so much fun helping Nansis get into her dress with her mom doing the final buttons. Since we started the day at the Biltmore, we had to stop on their grand staircase for a few photos. Seriously how gorgeous is this old school staircase?!

The church where Nansis and Alex got married was incredible, one of the largest churches I feel like I’ve been to in the New England area. They had a traditional catholic mass and their mothers got to have a special part in the ceremony.

Since we were in Providence, the perfect place for some family and bridal party portraits was obviously the Rhode Island state house building. If you haven’t been there it’s a gorgeous, white marble building that is a historic stunning feature of Providence. The ladies and men in the bridal party had so much fun with bridal party portraits, and we got some pretty funny images of the guys.

From there we headed to Alex’s parents house in East Greenwich, RI for the perfect backyard tent reception. After a hilarious introduction of the bridal party that included the flower girl taking a seat right before Nansis and Alex were introduced, they did their first dance together. These two definitely had style and ended their dance with Alex picking up Nansis. The maid of honor, Mirin, killed it with her speech. She started with a memorized speech in Spanish and then had to get out her note cards for the English portion of the speech that was equally awesome. After that Alex’s brother, Gabriel, gave an amazing speech with lots of anecdotes from growing up with Alex and Alex’s mom, Lee, finished off the speeches with a speech talking about Alex’s risk taking while growing up and praising Nansis for being the perfect fit for him.

After some amazing parent dances, their family and friends danced the night away with almost everyone out on the dance floor for every song. It was one of those days that flashed by so quickly because I was having so much fun. Congratulations again Nansis and Alex, you two are so sweet and I know you will have an amazing life together!!

Constance and Steven's Stepping Stone Ranch Wedding || West Greenwich, RI

Constance and Steven were my second couple that were planning their wedding from afar (Jen and Buzz were the first couple). These two are from California, and did an awesome job planning their wedding in Rhode Island. 

When I arrived at Stepping Stone Ranch on their wedding day, there was a sea of fog everywhere. It made the entire area look a bit spooky and mysterious. While the guys were getting ready and people were arriving luckily the fog lifted a bit and we had a break by the time the ceremony rolled around. When Constance and the bridesmaids arrived, they got out and then Constance changed up her ride. The ground was kind of wet and muddy, so Constance had the idea of pulling up to the aisle in a white convertible. By the way, this was one of the coolest entrances I have seen to date. 

After her amazing entrance, Constance's cousin Julian officiated their ceremony. This is something I really love, when the officiant knows the couple really well. He talked about their relationship, and the first time he met Steven. These two then shared their personal vows, which included the story of their first date in which Constance was running late but Steven just knew she was worth the wait. Their first date story was so charming and you can just see how these two balance each other out, each one of them are a great complement to the other. 

After the ceremony, these two left in their white convertible and it looked just like a fairy tale. We did a few portraits of just the two of them before heading back to the others. They just looked so happy and full of love. 

One of my favorite parts of their wedding day was after their entrance to the reception, when they did their first dance. They did their first dance to the song, "Perfect Day" by Lou Reed. I loved this because this song is a meaningful song to my boyfriend and I as well (he put this on a cd he made me at the start of our relationship). So seeing this song used as a first dance song, made me tear up a bit because it is such a beautiful song (that means a lot to me as well). 

The speeches by the Best Man, Blake, and Maid of Honor, Wendy, showed just how well these two friends know this couple, and just how much appreciation they have for their relationship. It was incredibly sweet. After the speeches, there was a break for dinner, in which we snuck Constance and Steven out for a few sunset photos. 

After dinner was when the real party started, this group had so much fun on the dance floor. This group didn't have to be asked twice to get on the dance floor. Everyone was up and having fun. 

To end the night, we did a sparkler exit. This was a bit of a challenge because we had to do this on the road, so every time a car came, we had to all move. After 10 minutes of this, we finally got a break and could do the sparklers, a perfect fairy tale ending to this beautiful couple's amazing wedding day. Congratulations again Constance and Steven, I know you two will have so much fun and joy in your marriage :)
