Maggie and Danny’s intimate Fall Beach Club Wedding, Newport RI

What led you to decide to celebrate the wedding the way that you did?

One thing that we both agreed on was that our wedding day would be about celebrating our commitment and love to each other. Looking back on it now, all the postponements and guest limits that needed to take place probably helped us better achieve a wedding that we wanted – a simple and small celebration. It’s easy to get carried away with the details and trying to make everything perfect. At the end of the day, we were able to spend more quality time with each other and with friends and family. And, if this pandemic has taught us anything, it is that our fleeting moments with loved ones should be cherished.

 

What was the biggest adjustment from what you originally planned? How were you able to handle it?

The biggest adjustment we had to make was having to postpone our original wedding date multiple times. So much can happen in two years, and for us, that meant having to plan a wedding while getting new jobs, moving, and trying to buy a house. Sometimes you just have to take a step back and remind yourself why you’re doing all of this. It also helps to have wonderful vendors like Angie who can be flexible with you!

 

What was the best part of your wedding?

So many great heartfelt moments (like actually getting married!), but one thing we loved was having our dog Bruce at the ceremony! It was a little bit of a logistical challenge to get him to the venue but seeing him decked out in his flower wreath was adorable. Even better, we have those photos to look back on!

 

Was there anything that surprised you about your wedding?

I think we were both surprised that the weather was way better than we thought it would be. New England weather can be fickle, especially in Newport, and in October. We were sort of bracing for a cold outdoor ceremony and expecting to have guests bundle up, but it turned out to be a gorgeous sunny day!

 

What were some of your favorite images?

We have so many favorites that it is impossible to choose! Not exactly from our wedding but prior to our wedding, we had our engagement shoot at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston. This was the first time we met Angie in-person, and the photos she took of us in the flowers evoke lovely moments of joy, laughter, and whimsy.

Angie also captured so many wonderful and authentic moments from our wedding, from the ceremony to the dancing. I think a favorite of ours is a shot of us two snuggled up at the head table surrounded by the floral centerpieces and candles. The background is dark as the sun was already set and we are illuminated by this warm orange glow emanating from the candles. It’s unique and this one picture perfectly encapsulates all the vibes and love from the day.

Any advice for couples going through this process or about to go through the process?

The pandemic showed us that celebrations with family and friends are truly a gift, and they shouldn’t be taken for granted. Focus on the love that you have for each other; the small things will fade to the background. Having amazing photos will allow you to look back on your wedding day as joyous as you remember it.

Other thoughts?

Get Angie as your photographer! We are both a little camera shy, but Angie is so kind and down-to-earth. She really makes it easy to be yourself and in doing so, captures the most genuine, candid, and beautiful moments during your time with her.
