WEDDING | Glen Manor Wedding with Matt and Ania

While all Rhode Island wedding venues are beautiful, we have a sweet spot for Glen Manor House since we got married there three years ago. We first fell in love with the venue back in July 2011, when we were photographing Loren and Darcie’s wedding. We immediately fell in love with the architecture and loved the fact that as the client, you had the entire venue to yourself on your wedding day. The fact that you can have your ceremony there and do all your photos on the beautiful grounds is an added bonus!

Matt and Ania had a beautiful wedding day at Glen Manor. The ceremony took place at St. Anthony’s Parish in Portsmouth in the afternoon. Immediately following, the bridal party and I headed into the Trolley from Newport Wedding Trolley and drove to Glen Manor. Photos of the couple as well as family and bridal party photos occurred as soon as we arrived. The rest of the evening was documented in an unobtrusive way.

After a sit down dinner from Blackstone Caterers, the guests enjoyed music from the band Night Rhythm.

Matt and Ania wrote us a lovely review about their experience working with us:

“My wife and I were recently married this summer (July 9th, Portsmouth RI at the Glen Manor House), and we had the pleasure of working with Nicole Gesmondi and her husband Paul for our engagement photos as well as our wedding day photos. As out-of-towners, we started from scratch on our photographer search, and spent a lot of time researching to find a quality photographer in our desired price range. We couldn’t be happier with the full body of work that Nicole and Paul brought to our wedding. We first got to meet Nicole & Paul at our engagement photo shoot, which was a really fun afternoon getting to know them. We thought they brought the right mix of professionalism as well as friendliness that made us feel comfortable in the setting. As for the wedding day, we think they nailed it as well. They were prompt, engaging, respectful, and very receptive to everyone’s ideas (because everyone will inevitably want a different type of photo taken). There was plenty to worry about on our wedding day, but we learned quickly the photos would not be one of them, as Nicole demonstrated the right level of involvement from the get-go. Outside of the actually photo-taking, Nicole is very responsive in communication, and we loved the pictures that captured our special day! If you are looking for an affordable, quality photographer in the Rhode Island area, we highly recommend reaching out to Nicole.”
