Mariely and Mike’s wedding at The Providence G was nothing short of spectacular! With a cocktail hour on the rooftop and an elegant reception in the ballroom, this was one event that won’t be forgotten!

The bride and groom are so so so sweet and down to earth (although most of our couples are, which makes us feel so lucky!) Mariely, who could pass for Miss USA, and Mike, the quiet but warm and fuzzy groom, made us feel like we were walking around Providence with celebrities! But even better than their stunning looks? These two are some of the kindest and most easy going people we’ve had the pleasure of shooting.

Love an elegant, glitzy wedding? Look no further than this one. The elegant yet trendy, rooftop cocktail hour started with a photographer’s dream – a red carpet with a step-and-repeat photowall (which I so wanted to steal for our studio) which was the perfect backdrop for more fun and gorgeous photos of the bride and groom. Add in a exquisite, beaded wedding dress and glamorous ,vintage details, and it all makes for some stunning wedding photos (if I do say so myself!)

But, beyond the physical details, what really stood out in all of their pictures was the love. Not just between the bride and groom (which you can obviously tell), but between all the guests as well. During all the speeches everyone spoke so highly of them, and the glowing faces of the wedding party and guests just say it all!

Not only was Mariely and Mike’s Day amazing, but recently Seth and I have been so amazed at the outpouring of love and positivity each time we showcase someone’s special day. Not only were Mike and Mariely referred to us, but since shooting their wedding, we have met with one of the groomsmen and his fiancee and they have booked us for their wedding. There is no better feeling than knowing that years from now these two lovebirds (and their families and friends) will enjoy looking back on their absolutely stunning wedding day!

I’m in love with this photo and it has nothing to do with any technical aspects, in fact the light is less than ideal but boy, the way she is looking at her dad as he is putting all of his focus into helping her melts my heart.

Seriously… My favorite pictures from their whole wedding day are these sweet glances they give each other.

So many photographers who like the more natural moments dread the posed formals. I actually have learned to love them because in between them is when I get my favorite photographs. These were not posed yet they are so similar, you two were meant to be!

We always love catching the bride and groom as they see their wedding reception site and take it all in. We also love when they agree to take a few moments to not only get some more portraits but to take it all in!

the ballroom at the providence g rhode island wedding reception hall RI

This photo and the next were taken seconds after the previous one which was playful and felt best suited with some crisp, white, natural light. For this one and the next, we wanted something a little more moody and passionate. This is what keeps photography exciting in my opinion, the possibilities are endless! There is always something new to learn! When I started, I was strictly natural light. Now, I love being able to manipulate an environment to look however I want to so that it can match the feel I’m looking for. Enough technical stuff 🙂 How glamorous are these two?!
