Lee-Ann and James | Renaissance Hotel Wedding

Can you believe that this is the last day of June?! Neither can we! Before jumping into your first weekend of July, take a look back with us to Lee-Ann and James’ Renaissance Hotel Wedding. Matt and Emily photographed the wedding, and Breanna brought the Bluecube!

 

Lee-Ann’s closest girlfriends surrounded her with love as they prepped for the big day. Laura Ballou made sure that every hair was curled and pinned into perfection. Once the wedding-perfect look was completed, the ladies were excited to get into their dresses! The bride and her bridesmaids all wore stunning gowns from The Bridal Shoppe. Now that everyone was looking flawless, Lee-Ann snuck off to say a quick “hello” to her man but was extra careful to make sure he didn’t catch a sneak peek before the ceremony!

 

With all of Lee-Ann and James closest friends and family eagerly waiting in the beautifully decorated room at the Renaissance Hotel, it was time to officially start the wedding! Lee-Ann was escorted down the aisle to her groom who wore the biggest smile. Melissa Heywood officiated the wedding where these two lovebirds recited lovely vows to one another and sealed them with a kiss.

Before jumping into the reception celebration, our lovebirds and their wedding party stopped for a few photos. They chose the beautiful and classic Rhode Island Statehouse as their backdrop.  After the photo session, it was time to party! Woodlawn Garden Florist created the stunning floral arrangements that graced the reception space.  After indulging on a feast prepared by the Renaissance and the tasty treats from the brilliant minds at Sin Bakery! After that, everyone was ready to hit the dance floor with Luke Renchan! Our fun-loving guests also took some time to visit the Bluecube to capture some hilarious memories!

Morgan and AJ | Prospect Park Engagement

Happy Monday, friends! Lets start this wonderful week off with a glimpse back to a Prospect Park Engagement with Morgan and AJ. Emily photographed the lovebirds!

 

Rhode Island is such an ideal state for photo shoots. You’ve got a bit of country, some city side spots, as well as the ocean waves and there all no more than thirty minutes from each other! Morgan and AJ and chose city views for their engagement session and Providence couldn’t have looked more beautiful. We had the perfect weather, and the trees were just starting to show their spring colors. With the city as our backdrop, we explored Prospect Park from top to bottom. With the sun finally setting behind us, we took our last couple of shots of these two love birds smooching and then called it a day!

 

We had a blast hanging out with Morgan and AJ! Scroll down to see the highlights from their engagement session below!

Gabriella and Patrick | Downtown Providence Engagement

Nothings better than celebrating new beginnings, and thats exactly what we did with Gabriella and Patrick for their downtown Providence engagement shoot with Matt!

 

Cloudy skies didn’t stop us from scouting all around our states capitol, luckily the rain stayed away for us to get some awesome shots in before calling it a day! We strolled by the prestigious state house and wandered along the the marble steps. After posing in some archways of the the state house, we traveled deeper into the heart of Providence. Stopping by some ivy laced walls, we naturally drifted to the closest body of water. The home of WaterFire was a great stop for us to end the day!

 

We’re so happy to have spent the day with this awesome couple! Be sure to check out Gabriella and Patricks engagement shoot below!

Sheena and Tommy | Providence Engagement Session

I hope this Tuesday finds you as happy and in love with life as the happy couple in this photo shoot. Take a look at Sheena and Tommy’s Providence engagement session with Emily!

 

Its always amazing to realize how even in this small yet wonderful state of Rhode Island, there are still some hidden gems to be discovered and explored! Well, thats exactly what Emily, Sheena and Tommy did in our lovely state capitol. We couldn’t have asked for better weather which was a huge bonus for the day. As any true New Englander can attest to, theres nothing better in the world than a fall day in our lovely part of the East Coast. Emily snapped a few pictures of the two love birds along the path next to the Providence River, and stopping in front of some beautiful architecture. After a quick wardrobe change we walked into the city where there was a bit more fall foliage to enjoy!

 

We had such a fun time hanging out with Sheena and Tommy! Hope you enjoy a sneak peek of their engagement shoot below!

 

 

 

Tara and Kevin | Providence Public Library Wedding

Let’s take a look at Tara and Kevin’s dreamy Providence Public Library Wedding! Matt and Brian photographed the joyful celebration and Caleb expertly handled the Bluecube.

 

On the morning of this much anticipated day, Tara was surrounded by her favorite girls and Studio B for hair and makeup. Once the ladies applied the last brush of mascara, they helped Tara step into her gorgeous Alvina Velenta wedding dress from Kleinfeld. After her heels were on and the veil was placed perfectly, Tara was off to surprise her eagerly awaiting groom with a first look. When Kevin turned around to see his glowing bride, his eyes lit up and the two were so ecstatic to finally see each other on this very special day!

 

Now it was time for the two love birds to part ways, only briefly, so that we could get the ceremony started! Tara walked down the aisle in a magnificently transformed room to her husband to be! Our friends at Flowers By Semia created the perfect florals to bring Tara’s vision to life, with gorgeous deep fuchsia and a touch of wild greens. In front of all their friends and family, each made vows to one another and sealed it with a kiss. Now that our bride and groom for finally man and wife, it was time to celebrate! Russell Morin provided the most exquisite meal followed by enticing desserts. Luke Renchan Entertainment helped everyone out of their seats and onto the dance floor with the best music to celebrate a sweet couple.

Confetti Foundation

Once in awhile, you come across someone or an organization that is doing something so awesome for other people from the goodness of their heart(s). The Confetti Foundation is that type of organization. They go into hospitals and throw parties for all the kids that are getting care there. It gives them something fun to participate in and takes their mind off of whatever it is they’re at the hospital facing. Some of them are wrestling with life threatening cancers and diseases. Others are there recovering from a physical injury. Regardless of what it is, all are invited to attend the party, do some crafts, have some cake, and maybe watch a princess sing some songs.

 

They also send birthday kits to the kids who are in the hospital so they can be cheered up even though they have to spend their birthday in a hospital room. Stephanie Frazier Grimm started the Confetti Foundation only about five years ago and has since been able to spread it nationwide.
She contacted us to see if we’d like to donate our photography services to an event they were having at Hasbro Children’s Hospital. We obliged and had the opportunity to see the effects of her efforts. It was so awesome and humbling to see the kids trickle in and have their mind taken off the dreariness of hospital life for just an hour or two. We were honored to be a part of it and hope you can get a sense for what it’s like through the photos below. Be sure to check out their website and read some more on what they’re all about. Thanks!

Lets take a look back to Krystyna and Andrii’s Providence wedding! Matt was able to join them for the day for photography!

 

The day started off full of love and laughter at the family home as the blissful bride and groom got ready alongside their beautiful baby boy. After everyone was ready, we all headed to St. Michael the Archangel Ukranian Catholic Church. This intimate ceremony was lovely, Krystyna and Andrii exchanged darling vows to one another and they sealed their love with a kiss! Now that our gorgeous bride and groom were officially Mr. & Mrs., we all took off to Providence for some pictures.
