(Just Married!!) Krissy & Chris at Rosecliff Mansion – Newport, RI

Feb 10, 2016

Where do I begin?  Krissy and Chris had the most gorgeous, Gatsby-themed Rosecliff Mansion wedding in June 2015.  There were glorious Roaring 20s details everywhere: feathers, pearls, vintage typewriters, art-deco signage.  We visited not one but two Newport Mansions!  And there were dogs!  Two of them!!  Such a freaking perfect day.  We were with Krissy and Chris for 12 hours but it felt like 12 minutes.  I had SO MUCH fun with them!  After all these months, revisiting their wedding images puts a huge smile on my face.  Not only did they have a beautiful wedding, but this couple is nothing but FUN!  Their infectious smiles and personalities made me feel like I was photographing close friends.  We were such a great match and Jefferson & I feel so blessed to be apart of this special day.

You know what else made Krissy & Chris’ day extra special?  They were really into pictures and allowed us 4 whole hours between the ceremony and reception to go all over Newport.  (Yes, you read that right!  FOUR hours!  Truly a luxury)  You know what the secret is to great wedding photography? Time & Attitude.  If you allow enough time and are excited about your photos, truly magical things can happen.

Here’s what I just LOVE about having TWO photographers.  My view on the right, Jefferson’s view from the balcony on the left.rosecliffmansionweddingpicturesnewportri87rosecliffmansionweddingpicturesnewportri86

First stop, to see the ocean at the 40 Steps in Newport.

Here’s a little behind-the-scenes look at all the fun with the video team from Mike Picard Motion Pictures and official Dog Wranglers!  We were stopping traffic, blocking the side walk and causing a scene.  Couldn’t have it any other way!

Chris was more then willing to indulge my idea!  Move over, Robert Redford!

Jefferson caught this great series of the couple rocking out moments before their grand introduction! rosecliffmansionweddingpicturesnewportri15rosecliffmansionweddingpicturesnewportri14rosecliffmansionweddingpicturesnewportri13rosecliffmansionweddingpicturesnewportri12rosecliffmansionweddingpicturesnewportri11rosecliffmansionweddingpicturesnewportri10rosecliffmansionweddingpicturesnewportri09rosecliffmansionweddingpicturesnewportri08rosecliffmansionweddingpicturesnewportri07rosecliffmansionweddingpicturesnewportri06Fun Fact:  The bride’s new married initials are “KL”.  When I put two and two together, I actually heard angels singing. These  are “Magic Photo Moments”…and I live for them.  I’d like to stop to give Chris’ brother a special shout-out for going out to the car around 11pm (the first time I had a chance to grab this ring shot all night!) and bringing this heavy, vintage typewriter back into the mansion so we could make this happen.  After I saw the bride’s initials lined up, there was no way I was leaving without this shot!
