Jane and Albert’s Blithewold Mansion Wedding in Bristol, RI

Jane and Albert were married at the beautiful Blithewold Mansion in Bristol, Rhode Island.  It is stunning…water views and amazing gardens, and of course, a mansion! From a photographer’s point of view, it is the perfect place for a variety of wedding portraits.  And that is exactly what Jane and Al wanted. They set aside so much time for photos…it was great! We weren’t rushed at all, and it gave us time to walk all over the property for beautiful shots.  Their day began with a first look.  Jane looked so beautiful, and Al immediately became emotional. First look photos are always a favorite of mine. From there, we spent about an hour taking just bride and groom portraits before the ceremony. The light was absolutely perfect: there was a cloud cover and it was early evening, so you could see the sun peeking through the clouds. Had it been sunny, these photos would look drastically different. This kind of light is a photographer’s dream! I wish the light were this perfect for every wedding!! Congratulations Jane and Al; enjoy the photos!

Gina and Paul’s Blithewold Mansion Wedding in Bristol, RI

BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_002 Gina and Paul were married on a gorgeous day at Blithewold Mansion in Bristol, Rhode Island.  It was honestly perfect weather: low humidity, just enough cloud cover to make a photographer happy, not too hot, but not too cold.  Gina started the day with hair and makeup by the fabulous M.A.W. Beauty. Melissa, the stylist, even stayed throughout pictures for touchups to make sure Gina always looked perfect! BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_003 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_004 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_005 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_006 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_007 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_008 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_009 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_010 After hair and makeup, we headed to beautiful Colt State Park in Bristol for the first look, a few bride/groom portraits, and all of Gina and Paul’s family portraits. It was so nice to be able to do all of these before the ceremony so that Gina and Paul could attend cocktail hour and visit with their guests!

BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_027Once we arrived at Blithewold, we wandered around the amazing gardens and grounds for more bride and groom photos with just Gina and Paul.Having portraits of the two of them was a big priority, so they made sure to schedule enough time in their day to have many!
