WEDDING | Metacomet Country Club Wedding with the Montablatt's

For us as wedding photographers, we often start working with our couples from the moment they hire us. This can be anywhere from 2 years to 8 months from there wedding day. We first met Matt and Lauren at the Get Pink Bridal Show hosted by the Rhode Island Wedding Group back in March 2013. We instantly hit it off and the couple won an engagement session that we donated in a silent auction.

We photographed their engagement session at Colt State Park in Bristol, RI last June. We invite our clients to bring any props to help personalize their session. Matt happened to propose to Lauren using custom dice that read “Will You Marry Me?” while playing an intense game of Yahtzee! The rest is history!

Matt and Lauren – also known as the “Montablatt’s” {which is both of their last name’s combined} – were married and had their reception at Metacomet Country Club in East Providence, RI. Rabbi Sol Goodman married the couple under a Chuppah outside over looking the golf course.

Guests enjoyed music provided by Music Express; a “His” Caramel and “Her” Chocolate Fountain provided by Sweet Streams Chocolate Fountains; 8 different flavor cupcakes created by Sugar Mama’s Sweets and Treats; and a Photo Booth provided by Shutterbooth RI.

Some fun facts about the Montablatts:
– we were the first vendor they hired after selecting their venue
– Since Lauren wouldn’t let Matt see her dress before the wedding day; Matt wouldn’t let Lauren see what he and the groomsmen were wearing either!
– Matt worked with the bridal party to surprise Lauren with a choreographed dance to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” right before their first dance. It was so much fun!
– the newlyweds scheduled two honeymoons. They headed to Disney for a few days after the wedding and in February they will be in the Caribbean. Lucky them! 🙂
