Since most destination weddings have multiple events, I was there to cover several different moments: the rehearsal dinner, getting ready, the ceremony and reception, and a day-after shoot. THEN, a few weeks after the Jamaican Wedding, Jesse and I traveled to Erin & Dustin’s Upstate NY wine country wedding that they shared with their extended group of family and friends. It was the best of both worlds- an intimate destination wedding (with tons of destination wedding photography, of course) and a big party back home!

I have a lot to blog from this past season- it gets so crazy! But even though I have lots to cover, I’ve been feeling as if I neglected the past post I did for Andrea & Joe’s Biltmore Hotel wedding in Providence. It was a beautiful wedding and the couple photos I posted before didn’t do it justice, so here are some more. Note how amazing the reception room looks… The pillars were covered in moss and had tree branches affixed to them to make the room look like an outdoor garden. Joe is actually a horticulturalist and did the entire room by himself! (Well, he had help in the assembly, but it’s his concept.) Because of their love of flowers and nature, we went to Roger Williams Park- and the rain held off just long enough for all the amazing photos of two happy people and their awesome wedding party.
Oh and the bar shots?? First, it just shows how cool Andrea is for wanting to do an Irish car bomb in her wedding dress… and secondly, it commemorated the first night they met- Andrea was waitressing and Joe wouldn’t leave the bar without her number.
Essentially, communication with your photographer about what you envision and who you are… and an engagement shoot!
Here it is said much better than I have:
