Abby and Ryan started their Newport Rhode Island wedding day off at their venue New York Yacht Club. Abby got ready with all her girls around her, enjoying mimosa after mimosa and little snacks throughout the morning. We showed up early to look around the property and how amazing it was! The yacht club had an ivy covered building that looked like it came straight out of Europe. The gardens mirrored that old world look with the sweetest master gardener who took us on a tour of their greenhouses.
We then drove out about an hour away to Ryan’s hometown to watch A&R get married in a Maronite Catholic church. The priest explained a little bit behind the Maronite branch of the Catholic church and how they not only practice the western tradition of exchanging rings but also practice the eastern tradition of crowning. It was so beautiful and now I have on my bucket list to photograph another crowning ceremony in the East!
We all made our way back to Newport for the reception that was ocean front with a beautiful sailcloth tent hung above us. Delicate details were made by the awesome team at Exquisite Events and lovely florals throughout the day were by Stoneblossom. Check out all of A&R’s vendors below.
Also, Abby and her veil were show stoppers! So lovely!

Maine is such a stunning place to get married for so many reasons but one of them being the land. Maine has soft sand beaches in Old Orchard Beach and then the rocky coast that fills up most of the other parts of the coastal state. Venture up north or west and you’ll find yourself in the mountains. And then all of the beauty that resides in the surrounding states and Canada are just breathtaking. I cannot wait for the summer warmth and to be able to do day trips here and there. When Krissy of Simply Be So Events reached out to me to be a part of their Maine Cliff Wedding Shoot, I jumped all over the idea. We had the styled wedding seaside in York Maine where the waves crashed into the cliffs. It was a beautiful site to see. And then we proceeded to The Cliff House in Cape Neddick to shoot some dramatic shots of the bride and groom for this Maine Cliff Wedding.

Krista and Victor are from Florida but Krista’s parents have a beautiful, ocean front property in Freeport Maine so they decided they would fly up to have the wedding here! I love that so many people have such a love for Maine that don’t live here- truly shows how beautiful of a location Maine is. Krista & Victor’s dream came to life with the superior talents of Heidi of SHE Luxe- a wedding design and planning service based in York Maine. You’ve probably seen a couple other weddings around here that I have had the privilege to work with Heidi on such as this fairytale forest wedding and this barn wedding with Ethiopian traditions. Heidi and Krista’s mother planned for months to have this tented private residence wedding in Freeport Maine a reality.
The men got ready in the barn on the property though it is very far from what you would consider a barn. The barn could be a wedding venue itself! The girls got ready in the other home on the property that had a beautiful view of the property and the ocean from the room they were getting their makeup and hair done in. Krista and Victor opted out of the First Look so we tried to get as many photos captured beforehand so they weren’t away from cocktail hour for forever. And watching Victor’s face while his bride walk down the aisle was pretty special. From the hanging floral installations to the chandeliers to the dainty hand-drawn barn and lobster on the invitations, everything was perfectly placed at K&V’s wedding. A cigar bar, large 3 teared, and many yummy drinks were ready for the guests to enjoy in between dancing.
Congrats Krista & Victor! Thanks so much for letting me be a part of your wedding day!
