Rhode Island Sunset Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

“Holy crap” is what came to mind when we first laid our eyes on this Rhode Island wedding. It’s just one of those weddings that define sense of style to a T, which goes hand in hand with a glamorously laid back seaside fete. With Lev Kuperman on board, we had no doubt the images would be as breathtaking as the wedding itself. We love their seating chart idea: vintage brooches for the ladies and tie clips for the gents!

Karla and Phil are two of most kind, warm, and stylish people I know, and their wedding, in the quiet Rhode Island town of Bristol was truly an amazing event. The wedding was set on a pier off of the Herreshoff Marine Museum and the reception took place under a tent on that same pier. The couple’s portraits were taken in nearby Colt State Park and they got ready at the Bristol Harbor Inn. The bride and groom had a traditional New England Clambake for the reception and celebrated with 100+ of their closest friends and family. The escort cards were attached to vintage brooches for the ladies and tie clips for the men. The beautiful stage was set against the amazing Summer sunset of Rhode Island and created a sun-soaked wedding that still gives me goosebumps. Oh, and Karla is also the singer in the 80’s cover band The Fades (!!!), who rocked the party late into the night.

Modern Speakeasy Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Shea Christine

Oh me oh my, do we ever have a treat for all you readers today! Desiree Dawn Events and Shea Christine got together to create this styled shoot inspired by a modern speakeasy, with touches of herringbone and days of yore at every turn. We adore this elegant take on a couple who met in a bar over cocktails and decided to embrace their first meeting through an intimate, humble elopement. Not to mention all the incredible paper goods from Make Merry!

From the event designer, Desiree: I think what inspires me the most is looking at old photographs of weddings, fashion, and era-specific details. Then, what I love to do is find a way to make them new again. That being said, move over trendy Chevron pattern, it’s time for your bigger, bolder brother to make way into the wedding world: Herringbone. You can find this delicious pattern in a lot of menswear, especially suits with a 1920s nod. It was a feature in our paper goods from Make Merry! and carried out through our groom’s hat, lamp shades, his bow tie, and the beautiful handmade garland that graced their table.

For more prohibition era inspiration, I looked for elements that gave that, “we met at a bar and fell in love over cocktails” vibe. A modern speakeasy is what we came up with. Imagine seeing your lover for the first time on your wedding day as he presents you with a celebratory shot to get you ready for your big day! We asked the craftsmen behind Bar-Lab to come up with two old-fashioned cocktails with a modern twist. I love the whimsy of a groom’s shot being called a Floral Garden. More so, with old-fashioned weddings, you’d get married, have drinks and eat cake. So simple.

After a luscious portrait session and a short exchange of vows, the Mister and his Missus sat down at their vintage table with a very colorful and modern tables-cape. We used a combination of vintage rentals and mod rentals. The vintage cake cutter was made unique by ‘dipping’ the handle in copper paint, another one of our vintage DIY touches brought to life. Copper is such a swanky color, it gives you that shimmer that so many long for but still has a solid, industrial feel. We hand foiled the place card holders with copper and continued with that sparkle very subtly on the cake, in the flowers, and in our brides accessories.

Alexis June Weddings

Hello beautiful! We’re Brandi + Ryan, the husband-wife photographers behind Alexis June Weddings. So who is Alexis June? They are the two loves of our life, our daughters, Kierstyn {whose middle name is Alexis} and Kaija {who was born in June}. Two years ago we sold everything we own to pursue our dreams and move across the country to NYC. We’ve been married for nine years and still crazy in love. Ryan speaks Norwegian. Brandi loves everything about Norway. Ryan has his MBA from Notre Dame, but loves to cook. Brandi was a journalist in the United States Air Force and eats everything Ryan cooks. Together with our girls we live in Atlanta, Georgia and cherish every day together.

Being wedding photographers is an honor and a privilege, to be a part of one of the most important moments in a someone’s life is deeply personal. Capturing a couple’s love story together makes what we do even more special. We have laughed, we have cried and we have experienced those joyous moments when its more about two individuals joining as one and less about the details. It’s about the marriage. It’s about the future. Love is a gorgeous thing and we are truly passionate about what we do. We believe everyone has a story and it should be told.

This is our story, what is yours?
