Jess & Dan's Fall Newport Wedding

As soon as Jess contacted me to photograph her wedding, I knew it was going to be a gorgeous one. Jess works for The Wild Dahlia - and from the start, had such a unique vision for her & Dan’s day. Their November date called for darker tones and candlelit warmth and although it was a freezing day outside, their venue felt like a cozy hug.

Jess & Dan have known each other since the 5th grade, and are high school sweethearts, truly growing up and in love, together. They were pretty quiet when I first met them for their engagement shoot last year but once we started chatting - I quickly learned that they are two incredibly sweet people. To illustrate this point: they took the time to write every one of their guests an individual letter, which was waiting at their place when they entered the reception - thanking them for their place in their lives, and their support in getting to this day. It’s no small chunk of time, to write all of those letters, but shows you the type of people they are. We are truly honored they asked us to be a part of their day….. enjoy a bit of fall/winter wedding inspiration….
