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!
