Jamie and Eric, Mt. Hope Farm in Bristol, Rhode Island

This.  Was.  Amazing.  Jamie and Eric were married in the most rustic of Rhode Island locations….right up the road from Roger Williams University.  They celebrated their union surrounded by friends and family seaside with the Mt. Hope Bridge available in the background.  An award winning Rhode Island Clambake was served to their guests with a brief description of how it was prepared.  The dance floor was heavily attended thanks to the very polished and handsome band, “The Sons of Businessmen”.  Jamie and Eric knew they were it, when they were first dazzled by them at another friend’s wedding.

Catering by Compton Clambakes

The gorgeous cake?  Made by the groom’s sisters.  Multiple layers of love and adoration.  And delicious!!

Flowers by the amazingly talented Mel Fairbanks

And of course, all things hair and beauty by the team at Hair, Heart and Soul in Bristol

The amazing band, The Sons of Businessmen

And a very special thanks to my incredibly talented friend Hilary Block, for being my co-pilot with camera partner in crime.

I first met Jamie’s parents on Cape Cod, they were both clients of mine at Headlines Salon and Day Spa.  We instantly became friends after discovering that our love for the four legged friends wasn’t as crazy as some people thought!  We bragged about our dogs just like we did our kids.  So when Claire asked me if I would photograph this beautiful day, I felt like the luckiest girl on earth.

Jamie and Eric now reside in North Carolina, a fact that I am secretly proud of, as they will only add to the lustre of the triangle area.

Thank you for having me celebrate with you!  Love to you both.  And yes, amazing.

 

 

 

Dana and Kevin, Falmouth Heights Beach

Here they are, two amazing gentlemen with incredible families and friends.  I’ve not laughed this hard during a wedding in quite some time!  The photos will speak of the love and admiration of the two of them by everyone there.  I was admittedly moved by all of it.  Once again, the folks at the Casino Wharf in Falmouth provided for the perfect location and ambience, the Man upstairs gave them the best cloud cover ever, and the rest followed suit.  Thank you, Kevin and Dana, for having me celebrate you!  Cheers!

Adrienne and Thomas, Garden City

Adrienne and Thomas picked a perfect coastal location for their April wedding.  They drove from Ohio to the place where they met, and had the most intimate beach wedding here in Garden City, South Carolina..

They hosted their families and friends with a good old fashioned southern BBQ with all of the fixins… ordered a picture perfect day, and offered Cornhole and Jenga for the competitors in the group.  Of course you know stakes were placed that day, with the bride being a graduate of Auburn and the groom from University of South Carolina!!

A couple of days later they were off, to a fabulous honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta.  It was perfect.  Thank you, Thomas and Adrienne!!

Romance, in a Historical Falmouth Garden

Tanya and Eric came from Milwaukee and picked the Falmouth Museums on the Green for their wedding day.  The fine folks there recommended me as their photographer, and we spoke for months before finally meeting.  We just hit it off.  Tanya knew exactly what she wanted, a romantic elegant garden wedding in the heart of Falmouth, Massachusetts.  Her family spent time here when she was young and her parents currently reside right here in the village.  It was a perfect spot to introduce her soon to be husband a look into her childhood.

It was so intimate and personal.  Her flowers were even an indication of their romance, and Courtney Dunbury was the perfect creator.  The cake was a “Pièce Montée” from Falmouth’s own French Bakery, Maison Villate.  A tall mountain of cream filled puffs held together with caramel.  Can you imagine the surprise of their guests?  It was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen!

The french quartet provided the music for the day.  And speaking of the day, it was picture perfect in September, cool breeze, unobtrusive sun, the kind of day that made you wish summer never ended.

This was a wedding for the books.  Although I spent only a few hours with them, it was the most incredible adoring bond I’ve ever witnessed.  Like a neoclassic painting, I truly enjoyed watching it unfold.
