I met Katie and Rob through their wedding coordinator and friend, and I am so thankful for that! This sweet couple planned an intimate wedding of about 70 guests, taking place in the grand Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, RI. The twinkle lights illuminating the entire manstion, inside and out, created a cozy romantic atmosphere on an otherwise overcast January day. I absolutely loved the fur shawls for Katie and the girls and the shimmery winter details throughout the evening.
Family heirlooms add so much to wedding. The garter below is Katie’s grandmother’s that she wore for her wedding 62 years ago! After capturing all of the details in the bridal suite is was time to use the grand staircase for Katie and Rob’s first look.
Rain or snow we were going to take photos outside! Katie and Rob were such great sports about being outdoors in less-than-cozy temperatures. I grabbed some great light in the few moments we had and we all knew it was worth some chilly fingers and toes.
Rob told me he appreciated the images of real moments, so at the last minute before the ceremony we created this image below. Rob, it’s one of my favorites, too!
Their ceremony was gorgeous, but of all the images I couldn’t help but share this one brief moment of levity during the beaituful crown ceremony. When it slipped down over Rob’s eyes, his face, which had been serious the entire time, (I was watching!) cracked a smile.
These lanterns added so much to the ambiance of the ceremony. They were flanked on both sides of the aisle with white branches that were lit with twinkle lights to create a warm glow.
The couple absolutely loves winter and Aldrich accomodated their request to leave up the holiday decorations that turned out to be the finishing touch to their theme.
