Leila and Steve 9.21.08 at the Glen Manor House - Photos by Trish and Ara

Leila had a very specific vision in mind for her wedding, afternoon tea party. It was fun to see all of the details that she had worked so hard on all come together to create the mood for the day. The weather was lovely and the people were really nice. You may remember these two from their portrait session in Providence. They were fantastic to work with, Leila is really good at posing and Steve is a really good sport and was doing a great job of 'working it' for the photos.

Leila's totally cool vintage style dress...

This music box held the rings, and was a gift from her grandmother.

Here's Steve doing some finishing touches with his proud Dad looking on.

The Glen was the perfect backdrop for her vintage style.

Ara got these shots of them seeing each other for the first time.

So romantical...

Leila was overwhelmed when she saw her bouquet, it really is beautiful. By Sayles Livingston of course.

This started out as a funny re-enactment of their prom pose, but the close up is lovely I think. YES! They went to the prom together and lived on the same street. But they didn't date until after college.

Here is the team.

In Steve's defense, I totally insisted that they/he do this photo! I mean, who doesn't like 'jazz hands'? I told you he was a good sport!!!

The details are so fun!

The Ketuba signing in the upstairs room.

This might be my favorite shot of the day, I just love everything about it.

This is such a classic moment, I thought the vintage black and white really made you feel the tradition in this moment.

Now for the party...

Each guest got a tea cup and saucer with their place card as a favor.

The dining room really carried the elegant tea party theme...

Normally this area down near the water at the Glen is all grown with big green bushes and such, so it was new for me to see the driftwood and brush, loved it! I could have stayed down there for hours shooting pictures!

The cake design is based on the music box design... Well executed I thought!
They had a super fun first dance that I think they practiced for a really long time! It was fantastic and you could tell that they were having a really fun time!

The hora dance is always a little nerve wracking when people fly up into the air on the chairs, but luckily these guys are light weight so everything was fine.

Listening to the toasts. The best man gave a heartfelt toast about how they were nerds in high school!

The maid of honor gave a funny toast about Leila having a bad sense of direction.

What a cute moment, I think all couples feel such relief when they sit down for dinner and finally relax!
The Glen Manor, such an awesome place!

The bouquet waiting the in the ballroom for the dancing to begin.

Yummy cake! Although it seems a shame to cut into such a beautiful creation.

Normally I would think that this kind of photo is cheesy, but I am really liking this shot anyway.
