WEDDING | Classic Providence Biltmore Wedding

I know Danielle from summers in Bonnet Shores! I was thrilled when she asked me to photograph her and Joe’s wedding day. The ceremony took place at the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul downtown which is gorgeous by the way. Definitely check it out of you have never been.

Since the weather was calling for rain, Danielle and her Mom reserved the Rhode Island State House for photos just in case. We ended up doing most of the photos at the Cathedral immediately following the ceremony. We did go to the State House but only did photos with Joe and Danielle.

The reception was beautiful with entertainment and uplighting from their wedding band, Mystique. They hired Jacob James Neagle, a live event painter, to paint their wedding day. He started out at the Cathedral and stayed through the end of the reception. All the guests were in awe of his painting skills and would check in on the painting throughout the night.

While they did cut a cake, they also had an Allie’s Donut bar {YUM} and a candy station. Towards the end of the night they had a “late night snacks” table too.

After the formalities, Mystique got everyone upon the dance floor and we were able to capture some awesome candids and dance photos. Check out a few favorites below:

The bride purchased her dress at Madeline’s Daughter in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and the Groom rented tuxes from Men’s Warehouse.
