We had such an amazing time last week shooting Becky and Danny’s multiple celebrations. Let me start by saying that these two are brilliant. They figured out a way for Becky to wear her dress (which she looks amazing in) not once, not twice, but three times and get to party all three times. And we were lucky enough to be there for the first two of them. And in honor of their brilliance and the number 3, we’ve decided to break it up with 3 blog entries.
Becky and Danny flew in from California for a destination wedding in Newport, RI- a truly stunning town. And they picked a perfect venue, The Chanler at Cliff Walk, one of the historic Newport Mansions, for their ceremony and first reception.
They wanted their wedding to be an intimate affair with their very closest friends and family. The Chanler was perfect for that and it was a real treat for those who had travelled.
Becky started her day prepping in their suite. When we arrived, she had just come from having her hair and make-up done and needed a bite to eat before getting dressed. So we took a few moments to grab some detail shots.
After Becky was all set, we took the opportunity to take some portraits. What a great place to take pix! We get great images and Becky got to enjoy the view- they were right above Easton’s Beach.
And then we captured a few more of Becky in her room- the room was so lush and luxurious- absolutely perfect for Becky and Danny’s first night.
Meanwhile, Danny was downstairs rehearsing his vows. He has the sweetest smile- no wonder Becky adores him.
Becky had a great walk "down the aisle." She actually walked from The Chanler up to the green in front of it, then all the way around it through these very pretty gardens and then down the aisle. Quite an entrance! And her guests were very eager to see her- check out all those cameras!
With their friend, Jeanine officiating, Becky and Danny said their wedding vows under blue skies with the blue ocean as a backdrop. So beautiful!
You did it Becky and Danny!
And they couldn’t resist stealing this kiss a moment later!
These two were absolutely so fantastic and sweet and wonderful. We had such an awesome time with them. Fortunately we get to extend it a bit longer.
Until then, here’s a snippet of what’s to come….
Becky and Danny have amazing family and friends; here’s a quick peak of their nieces and nephew hanging out during the cocktail (make that mocktail) hour. Note the beautiful view is behind them.
Definitely check back soon. We can’t wait to share the rest from their evening at The Chanler.
