I first met Emily years ago at Jackie & Russ’s Wedding, one of my favorite weddings of all time. Emily was in the bridal party and I was so struck by her sweet personality, beaming smile and her gorgeous dark hair. I was thrilled when she and Michael booked me for their beautiful OceanCliff Wedding in Newport. Emily and Michael’s coordinator, Elsa Fisher and her staff created an absolute picture perfect day from start to finish. My amazing colleague Caroline Talbot joined me as we captured Emily getting ready and a stunning mini-session of Wedding Day Bridal Boudoir for Emily. Erin Gaine and Makeup Artist Laura Heffernan of Urban Beauty Lounge made Emily and her ladies look elegant and glowing, a perfect compliment for Emily’s drop-dead amazing Pronovias gown. After Emily’s joyous first look with her father, Caroline departed to capture Michael and his groomsmen getting ready before a beautiful ceremony inside a glowing ceremony room at OceanCliff. Michael’s Mother was with the entire room in spirit as Emily and Michael exchanged vows as they beamed at one another. We captured Emily and Michael’s family outside OceanCliff and I was absolutely smitten with Michael’s grandmother. She was such a character, full of love for her grandson as well as some sassy looks for my camera. Toni Chandler’s florals were elegant and classic and I was absolutely in love with the pale pinks of Emily and Michael’s palette. Toasts for Emily and Michael brought both huge laughs and tears of love before guests enjoyed their amazing meal. Konditor Meister created a stunning modern cake and after Emily and Michael shared a bite, DJ Danny Walsh got the dance floor bumping! Press Play Studios captured every moment alongside me and created a gorgeous video capturing Emily and Michael’s beautiful day. It was such an amazing day and I loved every second of this celebration!
Emily & Michael- What an honor to work with you and your wonderful families! I adored your day and your joy is palpable, which is so awesome. I wish you every happiness in the journey ahead- I have a feeling it is going to be quite the incredible one!
