Massart Photographers capture a Regatta Place Wedding

Wedding photography in RI, CT, MA


Kristen and Dan had a remarkably elegant event that started with them getting ready at the Hyatt and ended at Regatta Place both on Goat Island in beautiful Newport, RI. Their day was filled with tons of emotion, great family, and love to spare.

However, let’s back up a little bit to when we met the bride and groom….after our initial meeting with Kristen and Dan, we knew they were a special couple. Fast forward a few days and we happen to run into them at a local pet adoption event. It was at that moment that we truly connected with them and, coincidentally, it was then that Kristen and Dan knew without a doubt that we were the right photographers to capture their wedding day. We didn’t end up getting (ANOTHER) dog but they brought home Ellie and the rest is history.

As you scroll through their day, don’t try to hold back the smiles. Just let them happen!
