WEDDING | OMNI Hotel Wedding with Kyle and Elizabeth

Saturday, May 24, 2014 | OMNI Hotel in Providence, RI


It seems like just yesterday that we met Kyle and Liz at the Southern New England Bridal Expo a year and a half ago. Fast forward to a month ago today when we were photographing their wedding day. Omni Providence was the perfect location for their classic and elegant wedding.

We kicked off the start of their wedding day by heading down to Bristol. Paul met Kyle at their apartment to photograph the guys getting ready, while I met Liz at  New Leaf Hair Salon. From there, I followed Liz and the girls to Liz’s parents house (also in Bristol) to photograph the dress. The ceremony took place at St. Elizabeth Church which is a quick walk from their apartment.

After the ceremony, we headed to Colt State Park and Kyle’s Uncle’s house in Portsmouth for family photos.

Cocktail hour was just finishing up when we arrive at Omni. The ballroom was beautiful decorated with uplighting by Victor Events and florals from Ray’s Flower Shop. The guests were served a five course meal along with cake by Dyane’s Sweet Tooth and a cannoli bar provided by the hotel. The couple did the garter/bouquet toss in a very non-traditional way and it was very entertaining!

The couple honeymooned at Sandals Regency La Toc.

We caught up with Kyle & Liz after their honeymoon to find out what their wedding planning process was like. Have a peek:
