It was a nice beginning to the 2014 wedding season with Christine and Jay’s wedding at Meadow Brook Inn in Charlestown RI. Being a RI Wedding Photographer, I get the opportunity to photograph couples in pretty amazing settings. This was my first time at Meadow Brook Inn and it did not disappoint. Even though we have had a late Spring, and not many of the flowers had not bloomed yet, the sun gleamed through the surrounding wood line and provided a beautiful backdrop for formals. The vivid purples and blues in the flowers provided by Weadweavers and in the bridal party attire were gorgeous! A special thanks to Nicole with Nicole Lopez Photography for working with me as my second shooter.
Christine was able to get ready with her girlfriends at her parents home. It was a super sweet moment when her dad saw her for the first time. The bond they have is pretty special.
The couple opted to do a “first look” before the ceremony started. This allowed them to have their formal photos done before the ceremony so they could join their guests for cocktail hour. I really enjoy photographing the first look between couples. The tension is crazy as they are about to see each other and then it all melts away as soon as they lock eyes.
April was a crazy weather month with a lot of rain. Luckily, the rain stayed away and there was nothing but blue skies and sun for their ceremony! There ceremony officiant, Barbara with Say I Do by Barbara & Company did a beautiful job.
Introductions and formal dances started the evening out right! Christine and her Dad surprised everyone with a pretty fun dance intermingled with the common slow dance.
