Dana and Mark at Astors Beechwood in Newport, Part One - Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

Posted by Trish - Photos by Melissa and Trish

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 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.

A beautiful bouquet of white.

Here is Mike getting just the right angle of video footage...

Dana is taking one last look before she jumps into this baby.

Meanwhile int he cottage next door Mark is running around getting ready...literally.

And he's ready to go...

Dana is almost ready, a quick shots with the ladies after a 'Going to the Chapel' serenade.

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.

A classic moment, a high five with mom!

I just love this shot!

Just to give you an idea of how the bride feels having cameras pointing at her all day, it can be daunting.

Our handsome groom.

Another classic shot, has anyone seen animal house?

Dana's brother came in to see her for the first time, an emotional moment for all!


She quickly composed herself and was ready for her portrait.

She is absolutely adorable!

It's the little details.

And we're officially off...

Mark waits for Dana out back at Salve, an amazing location!

Of course Mark was totally impressed with Dana's beauty and her gown.

What better way to show one's enthusiasm...

The wedding party. Looking good.

The family. Also looking good!

Dana has the most amazing light blue eyes! Lucky Mark what he gets to look into those every day!

I always love and action shot.

Their friends were having the best time, what an awesome group!

Did I mention that Salve is where these two met ' a number' of years back? it's true.

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.

Beautiful, seriously.

You look good too Mark.
