Lindsey and Patrick, Watch Hill - Photos by Trish and Ara

The prediction was rain, but the reality was clear skies...sort of. If you were in the Rhode Island area on Saturday you know that it was a sunny and humid day and that by evening it was foggy, really foggy! So foggy at times that it looked like there was a smoke machine going. But at least it didn't rain! We had a great day and everything went off without a hitch.

An emotional moment when mom sees her daughter as a bride for the first time...

Lindsey had a beautiful linen dress by Vera Wang, it suited her so well.

I think this is what you call a 'fresh face', she's so beautiful!

Patrick proposed over a Scrabble game, so I thought this would be a fun surprise for them...

How adorable is Patrick before the ceremony...

Patrick patiently waiting in the back of the church with his brother and Dad.

Lindsey entering the Watch Hill Chapel with her Dad.

This is where is gets good... Patrick's awesome reaction when he first sees Lindsey. (photo by Ara)

Then Patrick gets this 'look' on his face and is delirious with happiness just looking at his bride. I mean REALLY delirious...(photo by Ara)

Then it looks like Patrick may pass out or something, he chugs water, he looks at Lindsey some more, he smiles at the crowd, he's okay...

But against all odds Patrick sails through the rest of the ceremony in an upright position, success, the crowd goes wild, and is very relieved!

The happy parents of the bride, who wouldn't be happy about their daughter marrying someone who is so nice and in love with her!

Patrick was so cute greeting all of the guests after the ceremony, he was still a little delirious...

The lovely Lindsey...

Patrick is now back to his normal self and ready for anything...something tells me that he will NEVER be able to live that down. But it really was so sweet to see his honest and emotions and sincerity.

Even though there was crazy fog we went to the beach for some photos.

I love this classic portrait. The lighting actually worked out to our benefit, no squinting!

The wedding party posing so nicely in the fog at the Shelter Harbor Golf Club.
A very sweet first dance. (Ara)
Spectacularly executed of course!
Although not the expected view of the golf course, very cool indeed.
Patrick gave a beautiful toast about how much he loves Lindsey and how fabulous of a person she is, he really is crazy about her, it was so great!
An excellent activity for the kids at a wedding...making gigantic straws! (Ara)

Lindsey's grandparents, the last on the dance floor for the anniversary dance, 66years!!!

My favorite lighting, the romantic blue light special.

Alison and Nick at Castle Hill 6-21-08 Photos by Trish and Melissa

Cue the sunshine, cue the warm breezes, cue the beautiful people.... Alison and Nick had some seriously awesome weather on Saturday for their wedding! It was a glorious day, we did all of the formal photos before the ceremony, so they were really able to enjoy the party! They have the nicest friends, a real testament to how nice they are, it was a pleasure!
Oh no you didn' is the tensest moment of the day, trying to iron out a crease in the front of gown but putting in lines from the towel! No big deal, Alison was cool and calm.
Camaraderie with the bridesmaids...
Woo hoo!
Alison and Nick seeing each other for the first time, Nick waited out on the porch for her arrival.
Such a great moment!
Melissa got this shot from the vantage point from inside, sweet.

They met while playing on an Ultimate Frisbee team, so I fashioned them a personalized Frisbee with my scrapbooking letters, it's true, I'm crafty.

We walked down to the beach with the whole wedding party, fun shots along the way...

Nothing says 'beach' like star fish.

A fun and casual shot of the wedding party, they were all so nice and agreeable! (Photo by Melissa)

Are you kidding me with the cuteness of this?
Winner of the sassiest flower girl award of 2008!
Dennis James Robinson performed the ceremony, he made sure that the wedding party was straight and had it together, great for photos!!!
Married power!
Castle Hill really does it right!

In defense of this frizzy hair, it was really humid, and I was working hard!

Classic sunset shot...

Here's Melissa slacking off, why stand up if you can sit down?!
Alison's Mom put together a lovely slide show as a surprise for them.

Here's DJ Job from Rhythm Productions, spinning the tunes.

Everyone was dancing like crazy!

It was an awesome day, thanks for having me as a part of it!

Best Wishes for a long happy marriage -Trish
