What better way to celebrate national pride month than to share this beautiful, fun wedding reception I had the pleasure of photographing on May 20th?! Katelyn and Jenn had a lovely, intimate ceremony at Colt State Park in Rhode Island followed by a reception at the Warren Soccer Club in Warren, Rhode Island. Photographing the reception, I had the pleasure of hearing fun stories, loving speeches and also witness an outpouring of love and support for this newly growing family that warmed my heart!
A beach themed reception was perfect for the beginning of summer on what turned out to be a beautiful day following some very dreary weeks. The subtle touches of seashells and blue were seen throughout the hall, with seashell covered initials for Katelyn and Jenn lit by tiny white lights and beautifully engraved glassware for the bridal party.
It is always the little touches that make a wedding memorable and unique – and this wedding was no different! Katelyn and Jenn displayed a chalkboard sign asking for notes written by the guests to open in a years time. They also displayed a canvas with their names and wedding date on it for guests to leave a little note or sign. Gone are the days of old guest books – a beautiful piece of artwork that can be displayed for years to come is so much more meaningful!
What would any fun wedding be without a little break dancing and a dollar dance?! Every time I turned around, these adorable two boys were breaking down on the dance floor! And, can we take a moment to look at that sass on Katelyn’s face?! Who wouldn’t want to dance with her?
And what about Grandma?! I am not sure who was more fun to watch and photograph, the boys break dancing, or Grandma out dancing everyone! You go Grandma!
It was such a pleasure photographing this reception, and so much fun! Wishing all the love and happiness to Katelyn and Jenn, and to the new family they are building with Kay-Lynn!
