A luxurious Castle Hill Inn wedding in Newport, Rhode Island

When it rains, rock with it! This luxurious Newport wedding at Castle Hill Inn was nothing short of spectacular: thousands of roses, lush flower arrangements, modern chandeliers, a swoon-worthy satin dress, oceanside cliffs, and even late night Milk Bar truffles! Amanda & Vinny tied the knot and you’re gonna LOVE these photos!

A summer Willowdale Estate wedding in Topsfield, MA

In the words of the groom, “People said it will never work - she is a beautiful angel and he is a unique-featured weirdo.”

Mallory & Ryan have known each other since high school, through awkward encounters and mutual friends. After realizing they were particularly sweet on each other, Mal & Ry patiently waited for the right timing to be together. Between law school, medical school, Connecticut, and Boston, Ryan popped the question by the romantic reflecting pool in Boston, and she said YES! 

With the forecast showing thunderstorms and rain at Willowdale Estate all day, Mallory & Ryan prepared themselves for a wet wedding day. It poured all morning long, as predicted. As Mallory descended down the stairs to see her husband for the first time, something miraculous happened: the SUN came out. After a joyous first look, the ceremony began. Right before their first kiss, everyone could hear the pitter patter of drops bouncing off the tent - it began to pour as they sealed their marriage with a kiss and ran down the aisle. 

Here's to an INCREDIBLE Italian honeymoon and a lifetime of love, dancing, basketball, scooper bowl ice cream, getaway weekends to Burlington, beer, running, and HAPPINESS! <3

A whimsical Lighthouse Point Carousel wedding in East Haven, CT

Chrissy & Nick: lovers of Italian food, curling up on the couch to watch anything from scary movies to cooking shows, camping, and most of all, each other. They met while living in Boston, and we even took their engagement photos on the beach their apartment overlooked. After almost 5 years, Nick popped the question at a Christmas party, and the rest was history.

On one of the hottest Connecticut days in May, Chrissy & Nick tied the knot in front of their family & friends at Lighthouse Point in East Haven. Wearing her great grandma Clara’s bracelet and her grandmother Violet's necklace, Chrissy walked barefoot in the sand down the aisle before her uncle gave her away. Guests rode the magical carousel, danced to the setting sun, ate wood fired pizza from a pizza truck, and danced the night away. Their carnival celebration wouldn’t be complete without some late night cotton candy and favor bags filled with rock candy and salt water taffy.

Chrissy & Nick, you both are so special to me - I wish you decades of happiness, silliness, laughter, and love.

Thank you so much to all the amazing vendors!
