It was a hot day for a wedding in Bristol, RI! The humidity level was 98%… Ninety. Eight. Percent! It was moist out there. I’m sorry. I know that everyone hates that word but it was moist. Our bride and groom, Taylor and Clark, did not help the situation being so damn hot themselves. We had to be quick when taking the formal photos outside since everyone was literally melting! Thankfully Blithewold has a lot shaded areas for photos but who am I kidding? Shade didn’t help anyone! Did I mention it was hot?

Taylor and Clark are a part of an elite group of people that we have been so fortunate to meet through this crazy journey as wedding photographers. It all started with our friends, Colleen and John. They got married and we met Colleen’s cousin, Trey, who married Ian. We shot their wedding and met Taylor and Clark. Taylor and Clark hired us for their wedding (obviously) and while we were there we met Lily and Zach AND Michaila and Chris whose weddings we will be shooting this year. Katie and Josh who had already hired us for their wedding were also in attendance. AND bringing it full circle we just got back from doing Colleen’s brother’s engagement session in Brooklyn. Shout out to Blake and Allie! So as you can see this couple and this group mean a lot to us. The feeling seems to be mutual. Legends Only!

Taylor and Clark had originally scheduled their wedding for August of 2020. Since Covid was still making a mess of things they made the hard decision to postpone to 2021. Last year I was on the phone with a Mother of the Bride. She told me she was always trying to find her CSL’s, Covid Silver Linings. This idea stuck with me. The pandemic has not been fun for anyone so it’s not always easy to see the good things that happened as a result. That is why it’s important to find some positives to keep yourself going. One CSL at the wedding was a new addition added to the guest list – Taylor and Clark’s pandemic puppy, Franklin! Franklin didn’t stay very long but he was able to strike a pose in his floral collar before he was whisked away. Another CSL… Taylor’s childhood swing set was refurbished into a their ceremony arch. I believe the whole family including Clark helped put it together during lockdown which makes it a thousand times more special.

We had the best time at Chelsea and Jim’s wedding! They are such a happy couple and Chelsea was the most radiant bride. She was flashing her gorgeous dimples all day! The only person at the wedding who could possibly have overshadowed her was her precious little ring bearer who nailed every shot we put him in.

We got a great vibe going with Chelsea and Jim when we did their engagement session, so photographing their wedding was like hanging out with old friends. And we were so happy to be back at Belle Mer. We’ve photographed a lot of weddings there and are always impressed with them — especially their planners who work so hard to make everything look effortless. The venue was perfectly complemented by the flowers by Greenlion Designs, another one of our faves. Her designs are so unfussy and perfectly imperfect, and she gives off this vibe like she spends her days frolicking in fields of flowers. We love her!

Chelsea and Jim, thanks for making us part of your day. We hope your life together is as full of dancing and laughter as your wedding!

We often think of the couples we photograph long after their wedding, but we rarely expect them to think about us! So what a surprise it was when months after their fall 2019 wedding, Haley and John reached out to us during the pandemic to make sure we were okay. We were so touched by this sweet couple and loved the time we spent with them taking their engagement and wedding photos.

Haley and John’s wedding was so much fun. The reception was at Jonathan Edwards winery in Connecticut, so you know we were happily in our element! The grape vines were gorgeously complemented by the floral arrangements by Hana Floral Design. And the dancing did. not. stop! This wedding was so joyful.

Haley and John, a toast to you with wine from that gorgeous vineyard! Thank you for letting us be part of your day.
