Ali and Eric | The Dorrance Wedding

The Blueflash team is gearing up for the full swing of wedding season. We’re thrilled to be a part of so many amazing weddings, so we’ll be reminiscing about some of the awesome weddings we were able to be apart of in 2016. You are absolutely going to love today’s wedding. It was featured in the 2017 Edition of Southern New England Weddings! Let’s check out Ali and Eric’s Dorrance Wedding! Emily and Brian photographed this gorgeous affair.

 

Ali started her morning off with Calma Salon who took care of every hair and makeup need! Our stunning bride and her bridesmaids finished off their wedding look by getting into their dresses! Ali wore a Stella York wedding gown from Ve’Lace Bridal, and she looked absolutely gorgeous! Now that the bridal party was officially dressed to the nines, it was time to set off for the ceremony at Our Lady of Rosary Catholic Church. The men stood in their proper places at the front of the church while the ladies got in order behind the doors. As Ali walked down the aisle to Eric, everyone watched with utter joy. Reverend Joseph Escobar officiated the wedding vows. Once the couple was officially wed, it was time to celebrate!

 

Now man and wife, Ali and Eric stopped to take a few pictures at Propect Terrace Park. The Providence skyline put on it’s best show for this wedding party. It was a truly beautiful day. While we took pictures, the guests headed over to The Dorrance. The already lovely reception space was tremendously transformed by the master creations of Toni Chandler Flowers & Events! Not only did they provide a gorgeous location for the reception but they also provided a delicious feast for everyone to enjoy! After everything sweet and savory was devoured, everyone was ready to jump on the dance floor with The Sweet Beats!

 

Thanks Ali and Eric for letting us tag along for the day!

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.
