Massart Photographers capture a Harbor Lights wedding

Wedding Photography in RI, CT, MA

Even a severe thunderstorm at Harbor Lights Marina and Golf Course couldn’t get Jen and Heather’s spirits down. They knew that only one thing truly mattered….that they are in love and were going to have a wedding! We absolutely love shooting there and since Jen and Heather put the poor weather aside and focused on the positives, it made their day all the more special. From beginning to end, they went with the flow and the end result was a perfect day even if the weather wasn’t. Enjoy 🙂

I love the simplistic wedding dress in the simplistic bathroom.

                                            We sort of pressured Jen into some bridal portraits and I’m so glad we did 😉

We love that Jen and Heather were all about the natural candid moments, especially when it came time to capturing the ring bearers!

We got to the dock for some portraits and it got SOOOOO windy! The girls were such troopers!

Jen and Heather made our jobs SO extremely easy by being incredibly natural! We had SUCH a blast during their photos!

First photo by me, second photo by Seth from the ground! He usually accuses me of laying down on the job!  No seriously, I love that we can shoot together and get different angles.

This is where the wedding ceremony was supposed to take place had it not been a storm so it was a must to get some portraits there too!
marriage love rhode island

Not only did their ceremony get moved but so did the reception and down the drain (pun intended) went their planning of tent partying and outdoor bathrooms! Jen and Heather could have been disappointed and complained but they embraced it all and thought it would be fun to get a photo with those darn useless bathrooms! What’s better than 1 down to earth laid back bride? 2!
