Paige & Kevin had a big, traditional wedding planned, and sadly covid had other plans for their wedding day! With the big celebration postponed to 2021, Paige & Kevin still decided to get married on their original date, in an intimate small ceremony with their immediate families. We were so excited to be able to use the gorgeous gardens and grounds at their Rhode Island wedding venue, Blithewold Mansion. Paige wore her Hayley Paige wedding gown and had her florist, Flowers by Semia, create a stunning bouquet and hairpiece to suit the garden wedding vibe. I kept telling her, “I hope you know how big I am smiling under this mask!” because she was so beautiful and truly glowing. Their families also helped to make this day come true for them; their ceremony music was played by her brother in law, and officiated by Kevin’s brother, the best man. The mother of the bride, a hairstylist, even did Paige’s hair!
This wedding day may have been different from the one they had originally planned, but it was every bit as beautiful in its own way. They designed a tastefully simplistic, sweet, and romantic celebration to remember the day they became husband & wife. The party will continue next year, but for this summer, we just focused on family and there is a lot of beauty in that simplicity. And for me, I get to work with this lovely couple and their families all over again next year. SUCH a silver lining to not have to say goodbye to these wonderful, caring people. Can’t wait to see what this couple dreams up for 2021, and to be able to give them a huge hug someday for trusting me with these moments!
