Leslie & Tom | A Belle Mer Wedding

It always beautiful to be on the Newport coast photographing a beautiful wedding, especially when the bride and groom focus on what is important in life. Meet Leslie and Tom, a beautiful couple who met us through the Boston Bridal Lounge and decided to have a waterfront wedding at Newport's amazing Belle Mer and let the focus of the day be about life, family, and friends. The wedding was about family, about generations, about commitment and love. Leslie made sure the wedding was kid friendly as she understands the importance of the next generation, and wanted them to be a part of their celebration. Every now and then she would would come up to us and say something along the lines of "Did you see what the kids are doing?". We did. How could we not? The kids were having an amazing time! They had an amazing time because Leslie and Tom let go of many "traditional" elements of a wedding and allowed the day to be a bit more relaxed, a bit more easy going, and very kid friendly. The Super Band played a beautiful set allowing the guests to enjoy the easy going social aspect of the day. We had a blast being there for them and love their photos and thought we'd share a few of the young at heart, Lelsie and Tom. Check them out folks...

I have to give props to my good friend and make-up artist Zoe for doing what she does best!

Stacy & Jason : an ocean cliff wedding

Stacy and Jason were recently wed at the Ocean Cliff Inn and Resort in beautiful Newport, RI. Being asked to photograph Stacy and Jason's wedding was a special honor as Stacy is the sister of Alexis Elipoulos O'Mara, an event planner who we work with several times a year. Though Hurricane Earl was blustering outside, indoors the spirits were high and everyone enjoyed every single moment. Stacy and her friends sipped champagne and laughed at the rain outside.  We marveled at watching the talented Alexis review the day's schedule with her wedding team while simultaneously getting her hair and make-up done, enjoying a drink, and composing her maid of honor speech (check out the photo of her from above with her work on her lap).  We made a quick run out into the rain for a few outdoor images after the ceremony, but Earl didn't tolerate that for very long!  And at the end of night the wedding party showed off their blue tongues from the candy bar. Stacy and Alexis assembled an A-Team of vendors including hair styling by Studio 9, make-up by Kristin Greene, Tony from Ormonde Productions who did an amazing job lighting the room, beautiful center pieces by Steve and his team at Stoneblossom Floral , David O'Leary DJ'ing the crowd into a dance party, and Rentals Unlimited.   And last but not least, we can't wait to see the video produced by Jack and Naomi of Generations Cinema Stories! Enna and I would like to give a special shout out to event planner Tara Abraham, an associate at Unique Weddings by Alexis ~ we have documented 3 weddings with Tara this season and she always does an amazing job, managing a seamless day with a huge happy smile on her face!

We hope you enjoy Stacy and Jason's wedding day images and leave some love in the comments section! :)
