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’re celebrating Pride by featuring on the blog the very first wedding we photographed with two grooms. We met Trey when we photographed his cousin Colleen’s wedding, which he officiated. During the reception, we found out he was engaged to Ian, and in between snaps, we kept talking about how much we wanted to photograph their wedding because their chemistry was so sweet and their energy was something we hoped to capture. A week later, we got an email from them! Yay!

Trey and Ian’s wedding took place on Brecknock Hall in Greenport, New York, and when we got there, we totally felt like we arrived. Photographing a fabulous couple at a wedding almost in The Hamptons? Come on!

Their wedding was spectacular and was featured on The Knot. Is it any wonder why? Look at those details! They also used some of the same vendors Colleen used for her wedding. Whitney Events in New York was their wedding planner and their flowers were by Diane Gaudett Custom Floral Design in Connecticut. It was so great to see these incredible professionals again and get the band back together!

We still keep in touch with Trey and Ian (Trey’s Real Housewives memes are day-makers) and are holding tight to the promise we made to each other on their wedding day — to go dancing together in New York City! Can’t wait!
