Tsinsue and David : A Wedding at The Chanler at Cliff Walk

We always love traveling to Newport RI for weddings. There are so many amazing venues to choose from if you are having your destination wedding there. The Chanler at The Cliff Walk is one of our all time favorite venues: add an amazing couple and it is perfect. Tsinsue and David live in Arizona and traveled to Newport to celebrate with friends and family for a gorgeous evening planned by the amazing Erica Trombetti of Infinite Events. Married by David's uncle Mark, they exchanged vows under the large beautiful trees on the edge of the Chanler's lawn. The party moved to the ocean-view lawn adjacent to the Inn for cocktail hour and the evening reception was held on the terrace. The color theme was a beautiful soft pink decorated with flowers from Stone Blossom's gorgeous creations and everything complimented Tsinsue's gown perfectly.

Congratulations Tsinsue and David!!

Whitney & Chip | St. Lucia Wedding Photography | Part 2

The day started with breakfast on the porch, and soon after folks were starting to prepare for the wedding day. The farm workers gathered flowers and Laura (Whitney's mom) created arrangements. Whitney and Chip chose to do their portraits during a "first look" session, seeing each other before the ceremony. Chip stood in a field of tall red flowers as Whitney walked out to greet him in her dress. It was an amazing setting for this very romantic start to their wedding festivities! We then headed down to the old mill for a few more portraits before the ceremony. The old sugar cane mill, out of use for many years and now rusted into place, was a beautiful back drop for their ceremony. Their rings were passed from guest to guest for blessings and after the ceremony everyone paraded to the farm house led by a dear friend playing the ukulele. We dined on the porch and just before toasts were given we had the sudden realization that a page had been skipped during the ceremony and they hadn't said their "I Do's". So with a laugh and a lot of love they stood again in front of everyone and finished their ceremony. To add a bit St. Lucia farm-charm to the event they cut the cake with a machete. The chef, his staff, and the farm employees all joined us for the toasts in which Whitney and Chip saluted them for their amazing effort to pull off a full week of hosting the guests. The next day we met up at lunch and hopped in Terry's truck for a trip to the beach for a day-after photo session on the beach with horses! I had three elements not working in my favor for the shoot: the strong wind, extremely long shadows and the sand and sea water being blown up into my camera. At one point I was in the water up to my shoulders shooting and if I wanted to change a lens, I had to run up the beach and crouch down in the grass to try to change my lens out of the wind-blown sand. I must of cleaned the sea spray off my lens 20 times! It was all worth it - I love the images and am excited to be posting them for you here!

Congratulations Whitney & Chip! Your wedding was amazing and I had such a great time with you, your family, and your friends!

Cheers ~ Matt
