After we captured portraits by the ocean immediately following their ceremony at the Watch Hill Chapel, these two pulled away in their Porsche in the drizzling rain with a just married sign on the back. We took a few more shots as they drove off and a man standing on the side of the road asked if we were shooting a commercial. It was THAT beautiful. But we weren’t shooting a commercial; it was a real life, as good as it gets, kind of love story.
I’ll never forget this wedding day at Shelter Harbor Golf Club in Rhode Island, and I knew that would be the case from the moment I met Kim and Chas (I was seriously counting down the days). Every single detail was beyond perfect; gorgeous bouquets and bridesmaids dresses, a white suit, the coastal Rhode Island backdrop, an awesome car, and literally everything about Kim’s bridal look (she was stunning! As you can tell.). But what made their day come to life was their contagious happiness; I could have photographed their candid joy forever. They were truly beaming from start to finish and their connection is so evident in the moments captured. Whether it was Chas’ reaction to seeing his bride during the first look, their “just married” smiles during the bubble exit, or the look on Kim’s face as she awaited driving off in the Porsche while all their friends and family cheered, it was honestly a dream to be able to document each moment.
Their tented reception was an awesome celebration starting with the speeches that brought about a ton of laughter, and their AMAZING band, Beantown, who then took the lead and kept their guests dancing all night. A huge thank you to Kim & Chas for placing your trust in me to capture it all!
I am so excited to share these highlights of their one of a kind wedding day. Enjoy!
