WEDDING | Seaside Newport Wedding at Castle Hill Inn

“I always tell my friends, family, and clients that we appreciate your referrals! We are grateful for your trust and will take exceptional care of your friends and family.

Kelly was referred to us by the mother of one of our 2016 Brides. Her daughter had just hired us and highly recommended Kelly also schedule a meeting with us. We photographed Kelly and her fiancé, Ted, at Sakonnet Vineyard with their dog, Ollie, for their engagement session.”

Kelly and Ted chose Castle Hill Inn in Newport as the venue for their wedding because that is their spot to go enjoy drinks on the lawn or to celebrate a special occasion. We started the wedding day by meeting Kelly and Ted at Gurney’s Resorts in Newport to photograph each of them getting ready. We also coordinated their first look photos in the lobby since it was raining.

Before heading to Castle Hill Inn for the ceremony, Kelly and Ted made a stop at a friends home in Middletown to take a few more photos. It was a little too windy outside, so we used the interior of the home for photos.

Thankfully, once we arrived at Castle Hill Inn the rain had stopped so we were able to do most of the formal photographs outside on the stone patio {woohoo!}

Shortly after we finished the photos on the patio it POURED! Oh my gosh, it was INSANE! Luckily, there ceremony was tented and attached to the main tent for the reception. The ceremony florals by Christine Kuzman were beautiful, Ollie made an entrance on the wooden wagon and the ceremony was personalized as a guest performed the ceremony.

Guests enjoyed passed appetizers, signature cocktails and a plated dinner. The father of the Bride gave a welcome toast which was followed by the Maids of Honor rapping out their speech with sunglasses – super cute!

Dancing and Photo Booth provided by Luke Renchan Entertainment had the guests out of their seats all evening.
