Nora and Brendan | Bittersweet Farm Wedding

Much like their wedding, Nora and Brendan were nothing short of charming. Nora was a stunning bride with a classic beauty and Brendan was looking pretty handsome in his suit.

 

They had a gorgeous rustic barn wedding at Bittersweet Farms in Westport, Mass. A lot of their wedding was DIY and Nora’s mom did a fabulous job. You could really tell how much time and care she put into making everything. I loved their goodie bags on my drive home as well!

 

It was a pretty chilly day with a bit of snow left on the ground that I fell in once…but hey, I got the shot. I also LOVED her bridesmaids dresses and the jewelry she had custom designed. Everything was adorable. Thanks for sharing your day with me. Cheers to Nora and Brendan.

Satta and Kyle | Belle Mer Wedding

Satta and Kyle hands down was the best wedding I have ever been a part of.  The joy and love for family and God at this wedding was abundant.  From the moment I walked into the bridal suite at Hotel Viking, I was met with a kind of authentic friendliness that didn’t stop throughout the entire day.  Satta and Kyle had such a vibrant family that love  radiated from.  It is a truly unique experience.  Not only are Kyle and Satta a couple to admire, but their families are worth all the praises I could give.  Thank you so much for sharing this day with not only myself, but the Blueflash team.  I feel so blessed to have been a part of this day.  May the love of God, your families and friends lift you up for the rest of your lives.
 

Satta got ready at Hotel Viking while Kyle stayed at the Hyatt on Goat Island.  They wed at Channing Memorial Church in Newport, RI and then continued their celebration at Belle Mer.
 
Cheers,

Jess

Jessica and Christian | Belle Mer Wedding

On a beautiful day in April Jessica and Christian were married in Newport, RI. In addition to Jessica’s classic dress and Christian’s cool style, pictures popped with a breathtaking view of the Newport bridge.

 

The day started with getting ready at the Hyatt hotel where the ladies sipped mimosas and gifts were exchanged between the bride and groom. The ceremony and reception took place at Belle Mer housing all of Jessica and Christian’s family and friends making the night memorable. There was a lot of dancing and laughing taking place which made our job easier because we had so many amazing moments to capture!

 

Between the dancing, toasts, and delicious food guests made their way to Bluecube. Here guests took silly pictures with props, signs they could write on, and some pictures with the bride and groom showing what a fun and outgoing couple they are! Thanks again Jessica and Christian for having us at your wedding, we had a blast! Best wishes to you both!

Kim and Dave | Chanler Wedding

The Chanler in Newport set the scene for Kim and Dave’s spring wedding. It’s got quite the view, being right on the cliff walk and all. Jaclyn and I showed up with some time to kill so we gave ourselves the self-guided tour of the place.

 

Dave is a marine so he and some of his groomsmen were in uniform for the ceremony. Everything was at The Chanler, but Kim arranged for us to use the grounds at the Marble House for some photos after the ceremony. We all got on the Newport Trolley that they had rented and made our way over to the Marble House for some photos.

 

The ceremony was outside overlooking the cliff walk and the water. It doesn’t get much more idyllic than that! The party went on through the night and the fire pit outside was lit up for everyone to huddle around. Congrats to Kim and Dave and thanks for having us be a part of your wedding!

Nikki and Rick | Mystic Wedding

Nikki and Rick got married in Mystic, CT on a relatively warm January day. Jaclyn, Dan, and myself headed down and met up with them at The Whaler’s Inn for the getting ready pictures. You might remember Nikki and Rick from their engagement session we did with them in Newport.

 

I was looking forward to this wedding, knowing it was going to be an intimate affair in the upstairs room of the Daniel Packer Inne. The ceremony was at the Mystic Yachting Center, which is apparently a really cool place. Out in the back are some docks and the fog was pretty heavy that afternoon. We were psyched to get out there and shoot the bridal party on the docks.

 

The ceremony featured military personnel (with Rick being in the service) and lots of swords. They tied knots around their wrists which was pretty neat. Everybody was super nice and the night ended with a sparkler walk from the Inne to a local pub for the after party. We followed them on their walk and grabbed some really cool shots.

 

This was the first (and still only) wedding that the groom stood up at the reception and toasted to… Blueflash. It was so cool and unexpected. It’s always nice when our brides and grooms like us as much as we like them! Thanks so much for having us guys, and all the best to you both!

Meghan and Jesse | Winter Snow Wedding

This was the coldest wedding we’ve ever been a part of. Probably the most bitterly cold day we had all winter here in New England was January 3rd, which happened to be Meghan and Jesse’s wedding day. Thankfully the temperature were offset by everyone’s awesome attitude and all the love that was coursing throughout the wedding party and guests.

 

It was the day that the weather services were saying not to be outside with exposed skin for more than five minutes. Well, it takes longer than five minutes to take pictures and these guys wanted them outdoors and of course we were game. The bridal party jumped back and forth from the (heated) bus to outside to get their pictures taken. I, on the other hand, caught no bus warm-up break! I’m not complaining, though. It was worth it and I’m glad they were still down with going outside for photos.

 

The girls were in their sleeveless dresses throughout the whole process and I have to say that was pretty hardcore of them. I had gloves, a jacket, a hat, and three parkas on. When we were done with the session, Amanda and I got back in the car and noticed that my fingers were literally blue. Blueflash, through and through, right? That took the branding a little too far. I was happy to find that the color and the feeling came back after ten or fifteen minutes of dangling them in front of the heat vent in the car.

 

This bridal party was awesome and we had a lot of fun with them. We even went back outside during the reception to get some snow throwing shots. Amanda dangled the speedlight and umbrella while I shot and they threw snow up in the air. It was a memorable one. They also invited the Bluecube along which added to the fun.

 

All the best to Meghan and Jesse. I’m excited for them to come pick up their 20×30″ gallery mount and awesome album that just came in a little while ago! Thanks for having us!

Kati and James | Ocean House Wedding

From James and Kati’s Providence engagement session all the way to their wedding at Ocean House in Watch Hill, we covered the state pretty well. I love doing weddings when we’ve had an engagement session with the couple already. Most end up doing that, which is great. It just helps build some anticipation for the wedding and we have a better relationship heading into the wedding day than if we didn’t have the esession.

 

Anyways, the day was awesome and everything went really smoothly. Everything was right at the Ocean House. All of the getting ready was done in their outrageously awesome suites and the ceremony was held across the street at their chapel. Actually, I’m not sure if they’re affiliated, but the chapel is directly across the street so it might as well be the same place.

 

This chapel was ridiculous. We’ve done a couple weddings there before, so you might remember it, but if not check out the photos below. The wood-beam construction is incredible and the light spilling through the windows makes for a really awesome ceremony setting.

 

The Ocean House is a top-notch venue for the reception and we had free reign of the place. It was also cool that Kati was a fellow Cranston-ite. Some of the bridal party were fellow Cranston West High Schoolers. It was a lot of fun hanging out with them during the wedding and the getting ready.

 

Vine and Vessel did some great floral work and Moss Salon took care of the ladies with the hair and makeup. Full list of vendors that made this wedding come together is after the photos. Thanks so much for having us guys, it was a lot of fun!

Amanda and Christian | Castle Hill Wedding

I just have to start out by saying that I loved Amanda and Christian and I loved their wedding. Sometimes at weddings, it feels like you’re actually an invited guest, like the bride and groom are friends you’ve known for years. That’s exactly how it was with them.

 

They had an extremely intimate wedding at Castle Hill. There were no more than 25 guests. Only close family and friends. I like giant weddings, but there’s definitely something to be said for having a small group of the people closest to you at your wedding.

 

For dinner, there was only one long table that everybody sat at. How cool is that? Everybody was so relaxed. There was one best man and two bridesmaids. We did a first look on the beach at Castle Hill and then the ceremony was held at the lighthouse overlooking the bay. The weather was perfect and you could feel all the love coursing through the entire event.

 

Amanda and Christian live in New York but were awesome enough to make a trip back to RI for their First Viewing. I’m glad they did because we had a really cool night going through all their photos and catching up.

 

All the best to the two of you, and you need to move to RI soon so I can take pictures of your kids! Enjoy the photos…

Nikki and Eric | Oceancliff Wedding

Nikki and Eric had a fall wedding at Oceancliff back in early November. These guys were a fun couple and awesome to spend the day with. Jaclyn, Dan, and myself got the invite and had an awesome time.

 

They got ready at the Newport Marriott, took a trolley ride over to St. Augustin’s Church where they had their ceremony, and then jumped on the trolley again to hit their final destination of Oceancliff for the reception.

 

Studio 539 delivered some serious flowers per usual. I love doing weddings where Christine does the flowers becuase they always look so cool. Granted, I don’t know a whole lot about flowers, but I can always tell when it’s a Studio 539 bouquet for some reason.

 

The band was ridiculous. The Floyd Patterson Band ripped up Oceancliff all night long. Dan and I had to keep picking our jaw up off of the floor whenever the bassist (Floyd himself) would make a run down the neck of his bass. These guys were insane musicians.

 

The weather wasn’t looking too promising earlier in the day, but once we hit Oceancliff, the skies opened up and the sun showed through. It was a little cold, but everyone pushed through it like champs. We were even able to sneak out on the back deck with Eric, Nikki, and some lights to make a really cool sunset image with them. I love that stuff.

 

Thanks for having us be a part of your day! Be sure to check out their wedding film at the top of the image stack…

Jackie and Karl | Linden Place

Flashing back to the end of summer we have Jackie and Karl’s wedding at Linden Place in Bristol, RI.  This was a gorgeous historic property where part of the original Great Gatsby was filmed.  It had very unique grounds with two beautiful people celebrating their love for each other.

 

My favorite part about Jackie and Karl’s wedding was the longevity dance.  If you aren’t familiar with this dance, it is were all of the married couples head to the dance floor and sit down after how ever many years they have been married.  The last couple dancing is met with love and applause.  The amount of couples still on the dance floor after 20 years, 25 years, 40 years, 50 years, 60 years and up was amazing.  I don’t remember where it ended but it brought tears to my eyes.

 

It was very clear that Jackie and Karl are surrounded by families that truly support and respect the value of marriage in all of the wonderful years spent and in their trials.  It was a great thing to witness.  They also had their first dance to one of my personal favorite artists, Ray Lamontagne,  and they both appreciate a good microbrew ;)

 

Cheers to Jackie and Karl and may their lives be blessed with great longevity, love, and of course…great beer.

 

– Jess
