Congratulations to Sarah and Richard who had a beautiful fall Blithewold Mansion wedding in Bristol, RI. Blithewold Mansion is one of our favorite Rhode Island wedding venues, so we were thrilled to be a part of their celebration! They had a stunning ceremony right on the lawn at the mansion, which was perfect in the fall weather. Sarah and Richard told us how much they loved the botanical gardens and the ocean view, so it was important to us to include those spots in their portraits. They ended the night with a romantic reception under the tent, with the glowing lights illuminating their party. It was a dream come true fall wedding!
FUN FACT: Richard grew up in Sara’s childhood home, soooo Rhode Island us natives would understand!

A Tip for Our Couples
When you begin to think about how you’ll go from one location on your wedding day to the next, consider your method of transportation. While it’s tempting to want to hire Ubers or ask a family member or a friend, plan to have transportation lined up. If you don’t want to go the route of a bus or limo, plan something with a reliable transportation company that has other options but make sure you do have it lined up ahead of time. Transportation issues can wreak havoc on wedding days – especially if you’re going to multiple locations for photos. It’s better to have something planned out so you know exactly who’s helping you to and from each spot. One less thing to worry about on your wedding day!
