This day, this couple, this island… THIS. Them. Newport, Rhode Island holds so many memories, and on a perfect Fall day, one of the most beautiful memories yet unfolded before friends and family from across the globe.
Chris and Lydia are amazing together. He’s the guy you can’t turn your ear from because his stories engulf all your senses, and she’s the girl you never want to say bye to because there’s something so special about just being in her presence. The energy and excitement surrounding two such beautiful people making a lifelong commitment made it seem as though they were the only people in all of time, and the world simply stopped for them. The sounds of the ocean, views of the bridge, and sun-kissed tree branches made the already surreal Belle Mer a fairytale backdrop for the wedding day.
During dinner, Chris and Lydia shared a private glance at one another, and with tears welling, couldn’t believe that everyone they cared so deeply for was sitting under one roof. Chris shared how it felt like time was slipping too quickly, that so much happened in one day that he wanted to savor all the feelings and joy of these moments.
Chris + Lydia :: The greatest memory you took from this day is one another, until death do you part. Words won’t do justice to how special it was for us to be with you as you readied, to see you cry when you read his letter, and to see your face light up when you called her your ‘wife’. We care for you both so, so deeply, and are grateful to our core to know and love you. Thank you for the honor of capturing the start of your new family, and for inviting us into your story. We pray you share a life rich in devotion to one another.
Chris just looks RIGHT in a suit! Always so handsome.

Of course, her ‘something blue’ was Jimmy Choo!
Sweet, sweet moments.
