Warwick Country Club Wedding- Lauren and Alex - Rhode Island Destination Wedding
I met Lauren at my best friend Erika’s wedding in 2008. We were both bridesmaids and she was just a teenager then! Fast forward 10 years and I received an email from her that she wanted me to photograph her wedding. I was so honored and excited to work with them! I got to meet Alex when we met up for their engagement session in Cape Cod. He was such a champ as we shot their session over the course of two days. The first being in the pouring rain!
Lauren & Alex choose to get married in Warwick Rhode Island which is half way from where they live and Boston and where Lauren’s family lives in Connecticut. They picked the Warwick Country Club for their wedding which is right on the water. The venue had a stunning rocky outcrop and beach where the sun set perfectly on the water.
Their wedding day started out a little on the rainy side. We patiently watched the radar hoping that the rain would clear up by the time we got to the venue.
The easiest commute to a wedding i’ve ever had… Only walking down 4 doors to where Lauren was getting ready… I came into the room where Lauren was getting ready. You could feel both the excitement and nervousness in the room. Meanwhile, Annabelle was spinning around in the chair waiting for everyone to finish getting ready. The first look with Lauren and her dad brought tears to everyone’s eyes. The two of them have such a strong and beautiful relationship. During her dad’s welcome speech he said… Whenever Lauren was sad or needed something she always came to me. And then one day she was hurting and said I need Alex. It was then that he realized his little girl had grown up.
After the ceremony we headed over to Warwick Country Club for their reception. We arrived early with hopes of getting their photos done before the ceremony. It was still raining, but we could see clear skies on the way. So, Alex and his groomsmen got into a fierce ping pong competition while we waited. About halfway through the cocktail hour the skies cleared and it started to look beautiful outside. We went down to the water and started working our magic before heading into a wild party of their reception.
Lauren & Alex had the most stunning wedding. So many close friends and family, really amazing dancers at their reception, the perfect sunset to end their day, and a sky full of stars at the end of the night! Congratulations again to you both!
