The time has finally arrived for me to share this with you. This destination wedding that I shot alongside my daughter was such a treat! First, we were able to capture memories of the wedding of Larisa and Murphy....a sweet couple who were surrounded by family and friends in the idyllic setting of Newport, Rhode Island.
The ceremony/reception included so many family/military traditions it was an absolute honor to be a part of the day.
The historic Channing Memorial stone church in downtown Newport hosted the ceremony, followed by a gorgeous reception at the Glen Manor House. I have to share just a few pictures from the grounds of the reception since it was "fairytaleesque".
Secondly, I was able to see beautiful Larisa, firsthand in the cathedral veil that I made for her. She chose a classic cathedral veil with a long blusher; it was perfect for her designer gown. She looked amazing....and cool as a cucumber, despite the rest of us wilting in the heat and humidity of Rhode Island. Definitely a shock to the system for a couple of Coloradans!
The third treat was spending a couple extra days playing tourist with my daughter. Hey. as long as we were in Rhode Island, we had to take in some sights, right?
I planned a day of pampering the day after the wedding with a wonderful brunch and massage at the Castle Hill Inn to start the day. We took in the ten mile ocean drive and a bit of the harbor shops, followed by a sunset sail cruise and dinner on the wharf. We enjoyed visiting several of the mansions (buy the 5 mansion ticket, even if you don't see all 5....it's so much more economical), and the cliff walk as well.
It was a truly wonderful long weekend in every aspect....thank you Murphy and Larisa for letting me be a part of your special day. Best Wishes for a long and happy marriage!
