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 their children 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!
You won’t believe that this bright & airy beach wedding happened on a freezing cold day in mid November when you see these photos! Andrea & Jay’s wedding day at Newport Beach House was stunning. This venue is definitely on my list of favorites; the chic decor and bright spaces in addition to the amazing beachfront property made for photogenic backdrops everywhere you turn. Add Andrea & Jay to the mix and it was all really a photographer’s dream. Whether the fun swinging chairs outside, the glowing golden hour light, or the sunset peeking through the windows during their first dance… it was a day where each and every photo was fun to create.
