Last Saturday, I headed down to Rhode Island for my second wedding there this year, this time at the splendid Narragansett Towers. It was a beautiful day for a wedding, and my day couldn’t have started any better – I got such a warm welcome at K’s parents’ home where K was getting ready with her mom, sisters, nieces and best friends. I was a little anxious when I heard about the size of the bridal party (8 bridesmaids, 6 groomsmen, 2 junior bridesmaids, 3 flower girls and 5 ring bearers) but it was actually super fun – and K’s ultra laid-back attitude made my job so much less stressful than it could have been!
K’s beautiful lace dress was hanging on the cutest hanger from Etsy.
There was a very relaxed atmosphere at the house and I split my time between taking candids of the girls hanging out and taking fun detail shots … including K’s spectacular shoes which went on a little “shoe safari” a la Mister Phill. 🙂
The girls from Moss Salon did a great job with the hair, and I loved working with Gina Vanacore of 2 Shine Cosmetics – she was not only great fun but also a speed demon!
The flowers by Nancy at Dyer Avenue Florist in Cranston, RI were gorgeous, and unique. The mint in K’s bouquet was so pretty (and smelled wonderful):
A’s sisters joined us late morning. Aren’t these dresses so pretty? I love the beachy colors that K and A chose.
I just adore this next shot of K being helped into her dress:
A couple of last photos of K before I left to meet the guys at the church:
A was all smiles … and I love the sand colored suits his guys were wearing:
The ring bearers were adorable and hilarious:
A few favorite moments from the Catholic ceremony at St. Thomas More Church:
There was a great little courtyard at the church where K and A greeted their guests after the ceremony:
And I’ll leave you with a little taste of things to come after the long weekend … have a great Independence Day and I’ll be back on Tuesday or Wednesday with part two!

Kate – how can we ever thank you for your so beautifully capturing such special moments? These frames bring back the all the fun and excitement . . . . they will be treasured by K and A forever. THANKS, from a very happy mom!
Kate!!! We absolutely love our photos!!! I had no idea that my shoes went for a little walk prior to the wedding! Haha! The photos are absolutely amazing and you were just awesome handling the large wedding party. Once again you’ve outdone yourself. Can’t wait to see the rest. Hugs and kisses from Hawaii! K and A.
Thank you all so much! Kat & Alex, thanks for checking in from HI – hope you’re having an amazing time there 🙂
