Whitby Castle Wedding | Amy & Joe

I will never forget the first time I met Amy and Joe over a year ago. As they sat next to one another on my couch and described their wedding plans thus far, Joe couldn't stop smiling and looking at Amy. Amy leaned into Joe with literally pure joy on her face as she described the ceremony and the castle where they would celebrate. She put her hand on this back and gave his should a squeeze as she stated the obvious: "I am SO excited!!" Joe put his arm around Amy and shared some of the details of their special day with just as much enthusiasm. 
These two have an excitement for life that is contagious. They have a happiness that can't quite be put into words. They have a deep sweet love for one another that storybooks are made of. So it came as no surprise that Amy and Joe's wedding day was filled with these things: excitement, happiness, and love. Their Whitby Castle wedding was magical. The rain clouds blew over and left a amazing stillness outside of the castle. It was so calm and peaceful and a perfect place to take photos of the newlyweds before they celebrated with friends and family inside the castle! 
Amy & Joe - Your excitement for life and love for one another that is truly beautiful. Chris and I were so happy and honored to be there to document your special day. 
Below are some of my favorites from their wedding! And to see their NYC engagement session, click here.

True beauty. You are gorgeous Amy!

Two amazing families and friends came together on that very special day to celebrate the union of two incredible people, Diane and Will. The clouds parted and the rain subsided just in time for their outdoor nuptials. Rays of sunshine poked through the trees filling the ceremony space with a golden warmth that was simply breathtaking.  
He promised her his forever. She promised him her heart. Will has been her rock through the ups and downs that life has brought their way. Diane has been his encourager and inspiration to go after his dreams. Together they are a team that can conquer the world. And the two of them are loved. So loved. All those that were present and those there in spirit clearly adore these two more then words. What a beautiful thing it was to see. Their Fox Hill Inn wedding had laughter, tears of joy, and lots of dancing. Such an incredible day it was!

Newport OceanCliff Wedding | Cassandra & Tim

If you ask anyone who knows them, they will tell you that Cassandra and Tim are a perfect match. They compliment one another in every way and you just can't imagine one without the other. So one might think that they met through friends who set them up on a blind date knowing they would be great together... or thnk they met online where their high compatibility score made their paths cross. But no, these two high school sweethearts met eight years ago in the most romantic of all places, the cafeteria. :) 
And over the past eight years, Cassandra and Tim have fallen more and more for one another. Their families have grown close and her friends became his and his became hers. So it's no surprise that the love for these two could be felt from the very beginning of their amazing wedding day until the very end. There were tears of joy, laughter, and pure joy sweeping over the celebration! 
Their Newport RI wedding at the gorgeous OceanCliff was a dream. With views of the water, that amazing golden light and their loved ones there with them, it was a perfect day for a perfect match. 
Cassandra & Tim - Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for inviting us to capture your wedding day and welcoming us like family. What an amazing celebration it was, filled with moments we will never forget!

As her mom was helping Cass put her jewelry on, it began to sink in even more that the day had arrived that her little girl was getting married. It was such a sweet and beautiful moment...

You Cass are SUCH a beauty! Goodness!

One of my favorite moments was when Cassandra and her dad saw one another for the first time on the wedding day. It's moments like this one I will always cherish and never forget.


Seeing this sign made my photographer heart skip beat! YAY! What a difference it made having their guests fully present on the ceremony and not focused on taking photos. And what a difference it made in their photos!

Just for the record, he started it! :)
