Anne + Marcus | Narragansett Towers | January 2, 2016

Anne and Marcus are the kind of people you want to go out for a glass of wine with and share life. They are genuine, funny, well-rounded, smart, and balance each other so perfectly. Anne is witty, extroverted, and someone who makes the most of seeing the world and sharing it with others. Marcus is fairly introverted, but confident, humble, driven, and clearly in love with Anne. Their respect and mutual support for each other is admirable and I know this friendship and partnership will be a strong and fruitful marriage. I was lucky enough to get to know their story and capture a bit of their day as they became Mr. and Mrs.!

They both moved to Newton, MA, a year apart, almost to the day! They both showed up at the same pub on the same night, and were introduced by the manager. They shared a corner of the bar that night and have been together ever since. These two are each other's ying and yang. When they first met, Marcus was 100% focused on his work as an engineer. So much so that he'd never been on a vacation! Anne opened his eyes to vacations, and outings - Marcus has caught the travel bug and can't wait to go on his first trip out of the country this fall. Anne is the gregarious, worldly one who loves being with her friends - Marcus has grounded her a bit and inspired her to be more focused on her work as an event planner. 

Anne's dream of a New Year's wedding with a winter wonderland scene could not have been more perfect for this Narragansett Towers Wedding. Wow! Every detail was to perfection and as Anne said, "it was exceeded every expectation I ever had". From the pristine bouquet, to the "Sip, Sip Hooray" coasters, to the twinkly lights strung up all over the venue, to the beautifully crafted foods, the night was a definite celebration.

How cute is this little emergency kit that Anne happened to have?? Good thing she did have it…the rings were accidentally left back at home and these emergency rings saved the day!  wedding emergency kit essentials had the rings that the bride and groom had accidentally left at home! wedding emergency kit essentials had the rings that the bride and groom had accidentally left at home! When I arrived at the venue, we ran through a quick trial run of the ceremony, before Anne put on her dress! Then we braved the cold and went outside for  family photos and some photos of the bride and groom before the ceremony, just as the sun was setting and the colors off Narragansett Bay were soft pinks, blues and yellows. It could not have been more beautiful light to capture this sweet couple.

Two things I love about winter weddings - winter whites and furs. 

The ceremony was just as magical with the sun setting in the background, and christmas trees and lanterns illuminated throughout the intimate space. It truly was a winter wonderland!
