Molly & Brian | Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, RI Wedding

Every season I tend to walk away from at least one wedding thinking "dang, that was one heck of a night. I had a blast!". As a wedding photographer I attended a lot of weddings. Probably more than anyone will in their whole lifetime will and every single wedding tends to be a boatload of fun. However there is always one each year that rocks my socks off. This year, it happened to be Molly & Brian's wedding.

I met Molly & Brian over a year ago and remembered talking to them and instantly clicking. We hit it off quickly, got to know one another over lunch, Skype calls and more over the past year and finally - Their day had arrived. It felt like just the other day that we were photographing at Colt State Park in the dead of winter for their engagement photos (which turned out awesome by the way! Check them out here). Finally the day arrived, the clouds cleared and their beautiful fall wedding was here. Set up at Mount Hope Farm, they couldn't have asked for a better venue and backdrop. The ceremony location was absolutely draw dropping, the tent right next to the water was so New England and paired well with Molly's childhood memories of sailing with her dad on their boat in Rhode Island. The band, Kahootz absolutely KILLED IT with the entertainment for the night. Nobody left the dance floor. I even got down and dirty at one point (photos below to prove it). I also may have snuck in singing a song or two. Speaking of - Molly is a voice instructor in NYC, which made this wedding 10x better. From vocals from her bff's during the ceremony, to Molly singing a song to Brian and bringing everything to tears, to the surprise speech her sister gave in song, this wedding was clearly a musical in real life, and I loved every second of it. 

Enough about these two. Check out their sneak peek below.

Michelle & Nick | The Renaissance Providence Wedding

As many of you know, when I first started this photography adventure I worked part time at Apple for 3 and a half years. Michelle joined the team within my last year there and swore to me that when she got engaged, she was hiring me to be her wedding photographer. Shortly after her wishes came true and Nick proposed to her. A few weeks later they were at the loft, booking me as their wedding photographer. You may recognize these two from the amazing Lovebird session we did last year with them

Honestly, I had a blast photographing their big day. I felt like I was photographing two best friends rather than my clients all day long. Plus, once we got to the reception, the room was filled with a few familiar faces from Apple. Michelle is so sweet and Nick is the kindest guy I know. Together, they are seriously the best.

Congratulations Michelle & Nick!

Katie & Jason | The Omni Hotel Providence, RI Wedding

Katie & Jason were the sweetest couple ever. From the start of their day to the end of the night, these two were seriously the most kind hearted, loving, welcoming people we've ever met. We arrived for Katie's getting ready session and she welcomed us with cookies! Homemade cookies that we're to die for. That may be a first. Their families, friends, and loved ones we're so much fun. We had a blast and wouldn't of wanted it any other way. 

Katie & Jason celebrated their day at the beautiful Omni Hotel in Providence. If you haven't been to a wedding there it's pretty magical. Their DJ Luke from Luke Renchan Entertainment killed it all night mixing the best tracks and even had Katie come up and DJ part of the night (we weren't there for that but would have KILLED to stay a little longer to capture that moment). Needless to say, Katie & Jason knew how to throw a party. I can't wait to share the rest of their gallery with you. For now, here's a sneak peek of their special day together.

Danielle & Jorge | The Squantum Association, Riverside RI Wedding

Earlier this month, on a stormy, cloudy day, Danielle & Jorge said "I do" and tied the knot at The Squantum Association in Riverside, RI. Luckily for us, the weather held out for the whole day! Danielle & Jorge couldn't have picked a better spot to get married at. Nestled in a little corner outside of Providence The Squantum Association is almost like having a wedding in Newport without actually heading to Newport. 

Check out some of the highlights from their big day!

Lindsay & Marco | Narragansett, RI Wedding

Now that the 2015 wedding season is officially over and I don't have too much editing to do, I like to go back through the thousand of images we took over the season and find awesome photos or even whole weddings that I didn't blog during the hectic busy months! Today, I stumbled across this gem: Lindsay & Marco's wedding.

I photographed Lindsay & Marco's wedding with the amazing Scott Zuehlke Photography. Scott and I know each other through Hallmark, and any time he needs me to second shoot for him, I'll readily jump at the opportunity. We had a blast with this one! I gotta tell ya - If you can afford having a live band at your wedding, it'll make all the difference. They really know how to get the crowd going and well, the photos can speak for themselfs. Enjoy!

Watch out, that guy might show up at your wedding! haha!

But first, lemme take a selfie.

Topstone Golf Course Wedding | CT Wedding Photographer

I met Victoria way back when I was still attending Hallmark Institute of Photography. At that time, she was a hair stylist at a local salon and we had worked together on a few projects for her portfolio and for mine. Fast forward 4 years later, I received an email from her and I couldn't have been more excited because she not only was a client of mine in the past, but a friend. 

Steven & her are a bunch of fun. I couldn't tell you how many times I cracked up laughing doing their formals. There's two are goofballs and I love it.  Their wedding came out beautiful considering that Topstone hasn't done a wedding in over 10 years. You would have never noticed. All the floral arrangements and decor Victoria and her family came together and made. So yes, it's totally possible. The dress and vail was even handmade by her grandmother. These ladies have some skill let me tell you.

Congratulations you two. Love you both!

Thanks again to Topstone Golf Course in Ct for making this a beautiful day for Steven & Victoria!

Independence Harbor Wedding | MA Wedding Photographer

Lidina & Hamilton

Lidina and Hamilton's story is one that's sure to make your heart melt. Hamilton was a US Army solider, currently stationed in Iraq. After their engagement, Hamilton was deployed back to Iraq quickly and didn't have a chance to plan anything with his sweet new bride. However, that didn't stop Lidina. She quickly jumped on board, and planned everything out while keeping in touch with Hamilton each week. A story of true love. "Distance isn't a problem" Lidina told me. I then told her that distance makes the heart grow fonder anyway and that anytime she'll get to spend with Hamilton will be cherished forever. I was so excited to be apart of this couples story. Who wouldn't want to be apart of a "Dear John" love story? When Lidina found a photographer for their big day, Hamilton was stoked. He knew the importance of photographs of your life being a solider. I knew instantly that this was a couple I couldn't wait to get to know more.

Their wedding was beautiful. From the beautiful ceremony at St. Mary's Cathedral to photos in Newport, RI and then finally ending at their amazing reception at Independence Harbor (which was also the venue my aunt got married at when I was super young! I still remember it though!) I'm not sure who could ever top how much fun we had and how beautiful these photos are.

Congratulations you two! 

A big special thank you to all those vendors and people who made this beautiful day come true! Personally, I have to thank my second shooter and best friend, Casey Wright for helping me out on this one. I love the way her and I captured this day in a documentary style feeling.

Ledgemont Country Club, Seekonk MA Wedding: Khrystal & Roger

This past weekend I got to photograph a wedding that I've pretty much been excited about all year. I met Khrystal & Roger almost a year and a half ago when they booked me. These two were perfect: they were fun to be around, always happy, always joking, and super caring. Their lovebird session photos were some of my favorite from this past autumn and I can't believe that just this past Saturday they officially tied the knot. The day couldn't have come together more beautifully. Special shoutout to Khrystal & Roger, their families and their friends who made the night extremely enjoyable for me! I had a blast and couldn't thank you all enough for inviting me there!

With love,
Ryan
