Wedding Photographers RI, MA, CT: Amanda and Ralph’s Westport MA Bittersweet Farm Wedding

Rhode Island photographers capture a Bittersweet Farms wedding in Westport, Massachusetts

BY MASSART PHOTOGRAPHY, A FAMILY, NEWBORN AND WEDDING PORTRAIT STUDIO SERVICING RI, CT AND MA

Amanda and Ralph had a gorgeous April wedding that we feel so incredibly honored to have been able to capture! We actually met Amanda and Ralph because of Facebook, believe it or not. All of us are in a photography group (with over 35K members!) and Amanda posted about needing a photographer in the group. Along with 147 other photographers, we added our information to the post but the odds weren’t in our favor. Low and behold, Amanda and Ralph chose us to work with… and we couldn’t be more honored!

Since the moment we met Amanda and Ralph, it was clear that they had confidence in us and what we were doing. When our clients trust us implicitly, it makes our job much easier!! Amanda is very comfortable behind the camera since she’s a photographer (check her out she is amazing!) but she’s comfortable in front of it too! And Ralph clearly loves his lady, which was so evident in our summer engagement session last year. They seriously made our job a breeze. After their beautiful session, we were extra excited about their spring wedding this year!!

 

Amanda and Ralph got married at the stunning rustic Bittersweet Farm. Their day had a very relaxed feeling and it was truly centered on a celebration of their family. They chose to include their children, Brenna and Rhett, in their wedding day and it was so special to watch them be a part of such an exciting day! The whole day we thought Amanda looked like a Disney princess – she was so graceful and really a wonderful bride to work with. She had a stunning gown and beautiful veil (handmade by Amanda and her mom!) that looked perfect on her!!  Would you believe that she arranged ALL of those flowers? I’d say her talents extend beyond photography! And Ralph? Cool as a cucumber! He was just happy to be marrying the love of his life and celebrating with family! In every photo of the two of them, his eyes just light up when he’s looking at his new wife. Plus, he is talented too! Check out those centerpieces; he built the wooden vases!

The two married in an outdoor ceremony on the Farm and celebrated with a barnlike reception. From start to finish, their wedding day was full of love and a true celebration of family. Watching their kids enjoy the day was definitely one of the highlights for us!

Amanda and Ralph, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your love story and wedding celebration! We had a wonderful time being with you and documenting this special day.

Sometimes you need a few dollar bills to get things done… As parents, we are NOT above bribery. Am I right?

Their babies’ birth times and the wedding ceremony time. What a thoughtful wedding gift.

Just a very candid moment in beautiful light. So what if it was surrounded by a photo booth and cardboard boxes. The best things you just can’t plan!

Soooooooo mommy and Rhett’s first look didn’t go so well (apparently, Rhett decided that Seth was his BFF and no one else) BUT that’s ok, this down to earth couple appreciated the realness of                                                                                                                                     every moment and Rhett showered his momma with love later on.

Amanda is such a good sport, getting in the dirt to allow me to make my vision come to life. She is so pretty and her whole timeless look worked out perfectly with the whimsical florals.
