Jackie and Gunter | Fort Adams Wedding

Today, we’re going to look back at Jackie and Gunter’s Fort Adams Wedding! Emily and Kearsten photographed this fun couple, while Caleb joined the party with the Bluecube!

 

Jackie spent the morning surrounded by her favorite girlfriends with hair and makeup care from the awesome Lisa DiNapoli. With each lock of hair curled perfectly, the ladies were ready to get into their wedding attire. Jackie wore a gorgeous Provnovias gown from New York Lace while the bridesmaids wore beautiful dresses from Weddington Way! Now that the girls looked absolutely flawless from head to toe, it was time to surprise her man Gunter with a first look! With one tap on the shoulder and a quick spin around, Gunter was filled with complete bliss as he looked at his radiant bride! The Fort made the perfect backdrop for that sweet moment. After a few more pictures, and an exchange of nervous giggles and kisses, it was time to get this show on the road and jet off to the ceremony!

 

With the last of the guests filling into the ceremony at Fort Adams, the bridal party took their places and waited for it all to begin! Jackie and Gunter’s closest friends and family stood as the glowing bride walked down the aisle. Once everyone was seated, Greg Wheaton started off the ceremony leading Jackie and Gunter through their precious vows. After making everything official with a kiss, our happy couple were now newly weds and ready to celebrate!

 

The bride’s family crafted beautiful floral arrangements to bring some fabulous color to the lovely tented reception. With a delicious meal from B&M Catering and scrumptious desserts from The French Connection everyone was full and ready to party! After capturing some hilarious moments at the Bluecube, everyone hit the dance floor with Al Martinez!

 

Congrats to the happy couple! Thanks for letting us join you on your special day. After you check out the highlights below, make sure to check out this Fort Adams Wedding in Borrowed and Blue!

Staying on Track With Your Wedding Planning Timeline

Wedding planning can be a pretty daunting task. There’s so much to do and so much conflicting information out there about the best way to get everything done. How do you stay on track with your wedding planning timeline? We’ve got a few tips to share.

 

Enjoy the Moment

 

If you’re newly engaged, take some time to just enjoy the new level in your relationship. It’s a special time, so don’t jump into the planning too fast. The most important take-away from the wedding planning process isn’t the wedding, it’s your marriage! Take some time to invest in that and enjoy some time with each other.

 

Make A List

 

Figure out what is most important to the two of you. Do you want to have space for conversations with your guests or do you prefer to host the dance party of the century? Make a list of the things that are most important to you before booking a date or any vendors. This can be an incredibly helpful tool in keeping you focused on what’s truly important throughout the process.

 

Breakdown the Tasks

 

Now that you know what your goals are, it’s helpful to breakdown the tasks by month. Having small projects to work on helps to keep the process fun rather than stressful. Once you have the tasks broken down, share it with your bridesmaid or someone else who is supporting you. Having others assist can take the pressure off and can help give you a little push if you do start to fall behind. Our friends over at Weddingwire have a great infographic to help you break down the best timing to book your vendors. After you’ve accomplished your tasks for the month, take some time to celebrate! You’re likely working a full time job and planning an amazing wedding at the same time. That is no joke. Treat yo’ self!

The Venue Spotlight Series

 

Over the past few years we’ve photographed a lot of wedding venues. Like, a lot of venues. We thought that we’d bring something a little different to the blog to highlight some of these wonderful spaces. In the coming months, we’ll feature some helpful information and beautiful photos and videos of wedding venues around Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut that you are going to absolutely love. So, without further ado, here’s the next edition of our venue spotlight series: Harbor Lights!

 

Harbor Lights

 

Central location, pristine, manicured grounds, seaside ceremony arbor: Harbor Lights has got it all! To get all they offer, you might assume that your only choice is a Newport venue, but not so! This is definitely a venue to add to your visit list. The Grand Ballroom was recently renovated – it’s sleek, modern, and perfect. If you’d prefer to take advantage of the Bay view, they have some fantastic options for a tented event. One of our favorite parts about the property is the wide range of options for pictures. You can take your photos by the water, the marina, the trees, and there’s even a cute red barn to use a photo backdrop. There’s so much loveliness to choose from.

 

Want more than just a day of fun? They have options for an entire wedding weekend: golf, an infinity pool with a tiki bar, great dining options, they can even help arrange a harbor cruise. To help with all the options, Harbor Lights has an incredibly easy-to-work-with staff that will flawlessly execute your wedding. Trust us, you are in good hands at Harbor Lights.

Maureen and Matt | Nantucket Engagement Session

Happy Wedding Wednesday! Today, we’re not featuring a wedding, but we do have an amazing engagement session for you… Maureen and Matt’s Nantucket Engagement session!

 

This was a really awesome engagement shoot. The weather was perfect, the couple was super fun to hang out with, and we got to bring some toys with us to the beach! We took our drone with us for this particular session! Okay, so maybe its not technically a toy but when we get to take it out and use it, theres a sense of opening a new gift on Christmas day. Yes, the drone is that fun to shoot a photo session with! We used the regular hand held camera to start the day off, but then Maureen and Matt were just as excited to get the drone off the ground as we were! With the drone reaching heights of over a thousand feet in the air, theres a whole new array of shots we can get. There’s just so many different perspectives that we have available with this technology!

 

Thanks Maureen and Matt for hanging out with us as we channeled our inner 12 year old for this shoot! Best of luck! Check out the highlights from their engagement session below!

It was fun to be apart of such an intimate wedding! For some people, their wedding day is all about hustle and bustle and an extravagant party. But for others, all they need is their special someone. Emily and David stood at the edge of Castle Hill Inn where they exchanged loving vows to each other as the ocean waves crashed behind them. Not only did Matt serve as their photographer for the day, but he also served as the witness to sign their wedding license! Yet another awesome first for the Blueflash team!

Jessica and Dennis | Tiverton Boathouse Proposal

We hope you all had an amazing weekend! Today, we’re going to take a glance back to Jessica and Dennis’ Tiverton Boathouse proposal! Matt was able to join them for the day and catch this very special moment on camera!

 

We often join couples on the day of their wedding, or to celebrate with them after they are already engaged. It’s always an awesome treat for us to be apart of this joyous moment – the proposal! It’s the start of a new chapter, and a huge honor to be a part of such an intimate moment.

 

After a wonderful meal and a quick stroll through the park along the waterfront, Jessica and Dennis Found a bench to sit and enjoy the view. When the time came, Dennis stood up in front of Jessica while holding a stack of large cards. Each card expressed the deep love that Dennis had for Jessica. With the last card read and put aside, Dennis got down on one knee, pulled out a jewelry box with a glistening engagement ring, and asked Jessica to be his wife! Jessica said yes and the rest is history! There was one last surprise of flowers and balloons and then we took some time to snap a few pictures to document the rest of this extraordinary day!

 

Congrats to the happy couple! Thanks for letting us tag along and celebrate with you! Make sure to check out the highlights of their engagement below!
