Alright…the wedding we’ve all been waiting for! My destination wedding on July 15th in Newport, RI! It was a destination wedding for everyone including the bride and groom who are from New York. So everyone stayed in Airbnb’s around the area. There were so many special touches throughout the day – read below!

Stunning invitation suite!
Larisa and all the girls were in one house and everyone got their hair and makeup professionally done.
Murphy wore his Marine’s uniform and a few of his other groomsmen wore their uniforms as well. My Mom went and got the boys getting ready while I stayed with the girls.
They wanted to wait until the ceremony to see each other. Once the girls got dressed a private trolley came and picked up each of the bridal parties to take them to the church!
Love the photos my Mom got with the veil she made for Larisa. This was moments before she was about to walk down the aisle.
After the ceremony the newlyweds (and all the guests) walked across the street to the park where they had a Del’s Lemonade Stand for everyone. Which is famous in the area and the perfect refreshment in the humidity and heat! Larisa arranged more buses to take all the guests on a scenic ride of the area on the way to the reception venue. The first stop was Brenton Point right by the water where we got these fun photos.
Then we were off to the venue to finish up bridal party and tons of the two of them.
Murphy changed into a suit for the rest of the evening and felt much better.
Here’s where the jaw dropping part happens!!!!!
There were lots of formal dances and great toasts! Everyone was so happy for these two and it was amazing getting to learn more about them!
Right before the cake cutting Larisa surprised Murphy with a bulldog puppy he’s been wanting so badly! This one photographed is their actual puppy they picked up the weekend after their wedding!
They cut the cake with one of the swords!!
My first ever HORA!!! I’ve never laughed so hard. This was awesome – Murphy is so animated.
Congratulations to an amazing couple! I am so honored I could fly out and capture such an amazing day!
