In the middle of April, these beautiful human beings decided to tie the knot at The Chanler at the Cliff Walk in Newport, Rhode Island. The weather was perfect. It was warm and slightly overcast and the clouds created beautiful soft light for me to capture their special day. The groom was from Connecticut and the bride Texas born. All the bridesmaids and the bride wore typical cowboy boots to accent their heritage. You don’t see this type of boots too much on the East Coast so it was a fun fashion statement.  The couple had their first look and then we proceed to the ceremony at the front of the mansion under a spring tree which the bride just loved. The florist decorated the tree with flowers and the setting looked just like a dream wedding from the fairy tales. The ceremony was short and sweet and while the guests went to enjoy the cocktail hour, I followed the bridal party and from a distance I noticed that the ladies shared a group hug. After years of photographing weddings and having knowledge through firsthand experience, I know that these special candid moments might happen and they take just split seconds. So, I am ready to capture them! One of the things I love about photographing weddings is those little moments which happen around throughout the day that people might not notice nor pay attention to, but my job is to capture them with unobtrusive documentary style. There were more moments like this  during the toasts including laughter and tears of joy.  During the first dance the way, the bride and groom looked at each other, during the father daughter dance the loving hugs, during the mother son dance the kiss on mom's cheek - these are all tiny moments to remember on this day filled with family and love. Finally the cake came, which was still frozen, and the mother of the bride had to help to cut it.  The good atmosphere filled The Chanler Mansion through the roof.
