Ali and Bryan’s Gurney’s Newport Resort wedding wound up being our last wedding before COVID-19 impacted our early spring 2020 weddings. Of course, at the time, we had no idea that this cozy winter wedding would be the last one we would photograph for quite some time till late spring / early summer. Looking back on it now, it makes it even more special to us. Ali and Bryan’s day was so beautiful and full of emotion for so many reasons. It was a great reminder for all of us to celebrate the happiness and joy that comes with wedding days! Everyone deserves to have their wedding day filled with all those they love in one room!
Ali chose to honor her mother with white flowering branches scattered throughout her wedding day (symbolizing her mother being with her). Along with honoring her mother, she made sure to include her other family in the day as well. Her nieces got ready with her, and we made sure to get some special shots of the ladies together! From start to finish, their entire wedding day was genuine and heartfelt.
Given that Ali and Bryan got married in the winter, it’s no surprise it was chilly outside!!! But, they were troopers and we got some classic Rhode Island wedding portraits around Goat Island before their day was over. It was definitely worth braving the cold! Ali and Bryan, your wedding day was magnificent and so very special to us. Thank you for letting us capture the start of your forever as an #SZPDreamCouple!!
