Congratulations Franklin & Lexi!

Franklin & Lexi chose to have a First Look before they said I Do.  It was important to them that the first time they saw each other was a private moment between just the two of them.

Franklin & Lexi had one of the most unique weddings I have ever shot.  Instead of Bridesmaids and Groomsmen they had Team Lexi and Team Franklin, with a mix of men and women on both sides.  They were such a fun group to work with.

The wedding and reception were held at the CAV Restaurant in Providence, RI.  This place was amazing. It had such an incredible vibe that fit their style.  And to top it off Lexi's 19 year old niece surprised them by getting ordained to perform the ceremony!  How wonderful to be joined in marriage by someone who knows and loves you as well as a family member!

“It was amazing, perfect and most importantly, I felt like it was uniquely us.” says Lexi.

Wish you could have been there, too, blog readers! At least you can live through the pictures!

I've got another stunning wedding to show! The gorgeous couple consists of Mike & Katie, two people that anyone would love to know.

Their wedding day was truly breathtaking. It was a beautiful Catholic wedding at St Pius Church in Westerly RI, in one of the prettiest churches I have ever seen.

The bride's dress was seriously gorgeous, too. And I'm not just saying that!

We had a lot of fun taking wedding pictures, as well. They decided to not see each other until Katie was walking down the aisle. However they did want a moment to pray with each other before the ceremony!

Okay, let's get to the pictures! Mike & Katie were such a delight to work with and I wish them many wonderful years to come.

Josh & Kayla were such an adorable couple.  Kayla is such a little thing that reminded me of Miranda Lambert.  I love the connection between her and her dad walking down the aisle.

The color of the bridesmaids dresses are a photographers dream, so bright and pretty.  They coordinated beutifully with the grey suits the guys were wearing.

Every so often you get an image that just makes such an impact.  This image below is one of those images.  The bride's parents, the groom's parents and the newlyweds will surely be an image this couple will cherish.

As we were finishing up the formal images I noticed this beautiful classic Mustang (my favorite car ever) sitting in the parking lot.  I had to ask about using it for photos and was overjoyed when they told me that was why they brought it!

~Ashlee & Nicole - Misquamicut Beach - RI Wedding Photographer~

I have known Nicole since since she was a baby, so when she asked me about photographing her wedding there was no question that I would do it!  I had already photographed both her sisters' weddings and it was an honor to shoot hers as well.

I met Ashlee the first time when Nicole's sister Amanda married, and it was clear from the start how in love her and Nicole were.

It was a beautiful September wedding on the beach at Misquamicut in Rhode Island.  Every detail was perfect, from the flowers (created by the amazing Heather of Creative Collections by Lily & Co.) right down to the rainbow wedding cake!

Congratulations Ashlee & Nicole, I can't wait to share more of your life story through the years!


~Sean & Jessica - Meadow Brook Inn - RI Wedding Photographer~

I just loved Sean & Jessica's Country Chic wedding!  From the cowboy boots the girls wore with their short dresses to the custom his & hers ring boxes.

Meadow brook Inn was the perfect venue for their style

Weddings are always beautiful, but sometimes the bride & groom make an impression just a little bit more than the others.  This was definitely true of Sean & Jessica.  There were no serious formal shots of these two because neither one could stop smiling long enough.

You can see the joy in these images.

~Franklin & Lexi - Goddard Park, Warwick, RI. - RI Wedding Photographer~

Franklin & Lexi are one of the cutest couples in the world.  They "met" in high school but never really connected until college, where Franklin was roommates with a shared mutual friend.

Lexi filled me on how he proposed.  Franklin surprised her on her birthday by proposing with all four of their parents there.  It was so sweet that they were able to share that special moment with their parents.

Their wedding date is set for October 16th. They will be getting married at the beautiful CAV Restaurant in Providence, RI.  The CAV Restaurant is as beautiful, unique and fun as Franklin and Lexi are. They're not just excited about the details, though. They're also excited to spend the rest of their lives together. It's so clear that this couple is head-over-heels for each other!
