How do I start? … wow, what a dream wedding. My second Rosecliff Mansion wedding. Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island is probably my favorite venue in the US yet.
Ashley found me on Instagram through pictures from my other Rosecliff wedding I shot almost two years ago. Since then Rosecliff was my favorite wedding venue and I was so happy when Ashley bookend me. She contacted me even before the date was set!
So, I knew this one would be an amazing one, and I had something to look forward to for a year. I also knew that I want to stay in Newport for a few days. It’s a phenomenal city, reminding me of Europe.
We decided with Ashley that we will meet a day before their wedding for a pre-wedding session, instead of an engagement session, as this was a destination wedding. The weather wasn’t best, but we created some cool pictures on the beach in the rain.
The day of the wedding went smooth and the weather was excellent. Which was almost a miracle, as the weather weeks before the wedding wasn’t nice and it was cloudy and rainy right another day.
Getting ready at two different hotels, then finally
We had a lot of fun before the ceremony with both ladies and gentlemen. I hope you can see that on our pictures.
The rest of the night was just a funny part. A lot of bubbles,
