“It is settled between is already, that we are to be the happiest couple in the world” – Pride and Prejudice
Happy One Month + a day Anniversary to Max and Shannon who tied the knot at our favorite wedding venue – Glen Manor House in Portsmouth, RI. When I asked the bride to describe her wedding in a few words she said: Timeless, elegant, felicitous, smashing, romantic, beauteous, sublime and tasteful. We absolutely agree with her! We love this location for a variety of reasons: it’s gorgeous, you have to property all to yourself, Katie the coordinator is super easy to work with and there are SO.MANY.PHOTO.OPPORTUNITIES! A photographers heaven in my opinion!
There were a zillion things I loved about this wedding: Their save the date was a bookmark with photos from their engagement session that we photographed in an old bookstore in Providence. This really set the tone for the wedding theme. The bride LOVES books so they made their own invitations out of old books! They even had a scrapbook at the wedding, showing the photos of how they created the books. Their centerpieces were silver teapots stuffed with florals by Golden Gate Studios.
Their ceremony was outside on the property facing the gardens. Formals photos followed the ceremony.
They had food stations created by Blackstone Caterers (yum!) one was a RI Themed Station that served mini fish and chips, a mini lobster roll and clam chowder. So cute and the guests loved it! For dessert they had a beautiful cake created by LaSalle Bakery as well as coffee, tea and scones. They danced the night away with entertainment by Music Machine and had fun in their photo booth.
