Me oh my- I am so excited to share more from Lauren and David’s amazing day at the Castle Hill Inn.


With the rain far behind us, we captured a few images of our happy couple with the beautiful scenery whenever we could steal them away.

And then we spent the rest of the evening photographing all the joy- and there was lots.

Lauren and David definitely like to have fun. They are so playful together. And Lauren must have had about a thousand different facial expressions to show her happiness.

After the first dance, the hora.

Each couple went up in turn, Lauren and David first, followed by Lauren’s parents, and then David’s. His mom was a little nervous I think.

David’s cousin gave one of the toasts and he rewarded her with a huge thank you hug.

Dancing got underway in full force. Lauren’s parents, so fun.

I loved this moment. Just before they fed each other the cake, there was definitely some teasing going on. And Lauren, all with her eyes, says, "Please."

Then more dancing. Lauren made sure to have a little time with each of her grandfathers.

And with her girlfriends.

Lauren’s sister was a great help throughout the day, and also enjoyed a little time on the dance floor once the party got underway.

Maybe the best thing about a destination wedding, like this one in Newport, is that everyone has more time together, because all of the guests stay for the weekend.

Lauren enjoys another chance to connect with friends.

I have to close with one of my favorite images from the day. We had this amazing sunset over the water. Such a beautiful place to spend a couple of moments as newlyweds.
