It rained & it poured all afternoon, and then… it cleared! Like magic, Monica & Ryan walked out of their ceremony to find watercolor skies, and we spent the rest of the evening celebrating the newlyweds under the Newport sunset. I had the honor of photographing their stunning Belle Mer wedding at the Island House; a perfect setting for an intimate & classy seaside event. This day was extra special though thanks to having Ryan’s daughters and Monica’s son take part as their bridal party. I always love to capture children at weddings, but I especially loved documenting the day this crew *officially* became family! Once we finished up some fun family portraits, we sent the kids off to celebrate with the guests and created beautiful bride & groom portraits by the water before the sun went down.

Enjoy these images from their wedding day in Newport, Rhode Island. A celebration by the sea, centered around love and family. Nothing better! A big thank you to Monica & Ryan for having me there; I hope you will cherish these memories captured for years to come!
