We had the pleasure of capturing Gabrielle and Paul’s wedding at the Galilee Beach Club. They were coming in from out of state so we took a ride down beforehand to do some scouting for them. On our trip (Emily and I went to check it out) we stumbled upon an ice cream shop and a few other good spots. When the wedding day arrived, the skies were dark grey and looking pretty menacing.
Like we do with anything like that, we just rolled with it. It helped that Gabrielle looks like she fell out of a magazine. The rain held out for awhile. During the getting ready things were dry and it even held out for first look and some creative shots afterwards. Since it was so grey we busted out some lights and made some pretty cool shots with the Newport Bridge behind them and the bay. Then it came down. Hard. We jumped in the cars and headed to our indoor location – the ice cream shop.
We bought a cone and set up a light and we were back to taking photos. We grabbed a few shots inside the shop and then packed up and headed back to the Galilee Beach Club. Miraculously by the time we got back the rain had subsided. Gabrielle and Paul decided to stick with their outdoor ceremony plan so we soon found ourselves on the beach witnessing their marriage.
The rest of the night went as smoothly as you could hope for. They had cool little details everywhere and all their guests had a great time celebrating with them. Thanks so much for having us and all the best to your married lives together!
