nighttime wedding portraits outside the Graduate Providence

The Graduate Hotel Providence Wedding by Massart Photography, a Rhode Island studio focusing on wedding, maternity, newborn, and family portraiture.

These two FINALLY got to tie the knot. I know delays were the case with many couples but I still can’t help but feel for them so darn much! It feels like we met a lifetime ago but I loved them from the start. Arianna’s sweet, bubbly and kind nature perfectly matches John. Also, can we talk about the way he looks at her? Get the tissues…

These two have SO much Italian pride and I was totally in my element hearing some of my favorite European songs! Te amo you guys! 🎵

The graduate was THE perfect backdrop for their wedding portraits and they couldn’t have cared less that it rained most of the afternoon; nothing was going to ruin their day. The rain allowed us to take advantage of the Graduate’s super cool backdrops so I wasn’t mad personally!

They wanted a “big fat Italian wedding” and I’d say they succeeded! It was such a celebration and the love was palpable.

Side note, Arianna’s dad is a florist! His work is gorgeous and I just think it’s SO special that he was able to do his daughter’s flowers!

Enjoy your photos; your day was absolutely magical!
