We met Dana and Mark at The Pearls in Newport for their getting ready photos and then they met up before the ceremony at Salve for photos with the family and wedding party so that they could just enjoy the cocktail hour with all of their guests. Awesome.
These invitations, and all of the printed pieces from the wedding were done through Raina, how beautiful are they?! You really can't go wrong with green and blue...you always match the sky and the grass!
One of my favorite parts of the day is getting to see the dress for the first time, just waiting for it's owner to occupy it.
She's into the dress and is someone can figure out how to get those buttons done we'll be in business.
Ah, here's our girl Raina, she saved the day and brought a yarn hook and managed to get Dana securely into her dress.
Just to give you an idea of how the bride feels having cameras pointing at her all day, it can be daunting.
Of course Mark was totally impressed with Dana's beauty and her gown.
Salve has one of the best vantage points for this super blue ocean view. See what I mean about the blue and green.
We were melting a bot out in the bright sun so we ducked inside for a few shots, this rooms knocks my socks off every time!
Such a good looking couple, do they kind of look alike? That can happen after people are together for a while.
