Squantum Association Wedding, East Providence RI: Sandra and Connor

What were you most excited about before the wedding?

We were most excited to be able to share our special day with our family and closet friends, to be able to pull everyone we love into one room to celebrate. We were just so excited to share all of our details and planning with everyone all together!

What moments did you love the most of your wedding?

Our ceremony was just magical, with our best friend serving as our officiant. Our second favorite moment of the day was the toasts & speeches from our MOH, BM and both our dads. Each was so uniques and special with what they said and their hopes for our marriage and years to come.

What was the best decision you made for your wedding?

Sandra: Selecting amazing wedding vendors – Like Angie! Being a previous wedding planner I had seen a lot of events over the years. And choosing wedding vendors that I knew and trusted made the planning for the day that much more enjoyable and also allowed to relish in the moment on the big day rather than stressed about things not going right.
Connor: Choosing one of our closet friends to be our wedding officiant. She was able to bring such a personal side to the ceremony one that set the tone for the entire event/day.

Which images did you love the most, any one specific ones and why?

Thats a hard question to answer, all of our photos are incredible. Some of our favorites though would have to be the candid moments taken through out the day. Family sitting together getting to catch up, Connor’s grandfather giving us some advice during dinner, and guests watching our ceremony take place. Getting the chance to see things from their perspective has allowed to feel like we didn’t miss a thing!

If you shared a little advice for couples going through this process what would be the biggest take away?

The best advice we can give is to try and enjoy the planning process as much as you can. Each wedding is unique and a lot of thought goes into the day and making them perfect, but make sure that you are choosing details that match just you and your significant others ideas!

Briar Barn Inn Wedding, Rowley MA: Natalie and Bob

What were you most excited about before the wedding?

Natalie: I was most excited to see Bob at the ceremony, celebrating with family/friends and to see all the endless work we’ve put into planning our wedding finally come to fruition.

Bob: Excited to recite my vows properly (I didn’t, but close enough), to let loose after the formalities and just party.

What moments did you love the most after your wedding?

Natalie: I really enjoyed our portrait session after the ceremony. It was nice to have one on one time with Bob after all the excitement. Also being at our reception and seeing all the people we love together in one room was really special.

Bob: The whole thing went pretty much as planned which we we very pleased with. The food exceeded expectation, which was one pleasant surprise. Otherwise just people’s positive reactions and willingness to party was great.

What was the best decision you made for your wedding?

Natalie: Picking amazing wedding vendors that we really wanted to work with was a big plus. Also having a day-of coordinator was a lifesaver!

Bob: Besides the open bar…just choosing great vendors and not holding back on anything that is truly desired in the wedding.

Which images did you love the most, any one specific ones and why?

Natalie: I love the portraits of Bob and I after the ceremony and the candid moments of everyone during the reception having fun.

Bob: Tough one – I am biased and probably like the portraits of my bride the most. The family photos are nice and the candid reception photos are great too.

If you shared a little advice for couples going through this process what would be the biggest take away?

Natalie: Don’t wait too long to book vendors you really want to work with and let go of the stress/expectations as much as you can, especially on your wedding day. When people say it goes by so fast, it really does! Just try to relax, enjoy and absorb all the love and celebration of the day!

Bob: Just sent it. Cut corners and save money where you can by all means, but if it makes your life easier to spend a little money it’s probably money well spent.

Newport Vineyards Wedding, Middletown, RI: Erin and Erik

What were you most excited about before the wedding?

Being able to throw such an amazing party for all of our closest friends and family. We love planning and hosting so this was that to the extreme! We are both big people pleasers, so we just wanted all of our guests to have a blast!

What moments did you love the most after your wedding? 

Our ceremony was just so perfect, with our best friend serving as our officiant. We also loved our first dance with our other best friend singing for us. All in all, we love how personal everything felt. The dance floor was definitely Erin’s favorite- she did not leave once! 

What was the best decision you made for your wedding?  

To go with a photographer like Angie – someone who was able to capture all these amazing moments in such a natural way. She exceeded our already lofty expectations and was able to capture so many moments and emotions that would’ve been lost to time if not for her photos.

Which images did you love the most, any one specific ones and why?  

We loved the shot of the two of us kissing underneath the veil – such a cool shot that showed just how close we felt that day. We also loved the shot of us walking back to our cocktail hour while the sun was setting – truly a moment we’ll never forget…I mean we did stop traffic crossing the street haha.

If you shared a little advice for couples going through this process what would be the biggest take away? 

On the day of, take as many moments as you can to soak it all in with your new spouse. The day passes you by so quickly, and you’ll want to relish in the happiness! And remember to just have fun- I was nervous throughout the planning process and being able to just enjoy yourselves with your closest friends and family is the best advice we can give you!
