Holli and Rob at Blithewold Mansion, Bristol, RI

After days of heavy downpours and cool nights the wedding day of Holli and Rob arrived with sunshine and warmth in abundance. These adorable middle school teachers were a joy to photograph with smiles that beamed the whole day. Their romantic celebration was a picturesque symphony of colors with an incredible herb garden created by design under the giant white tent. Rob’s discerning taste was evident in every detail of the event with sweet, personal details everywhere you looked. He planned a few surprises for his rosy bride including a performance by the BU Dear Abbey’s (an acappella group close to Holli’s heart) and a recorded video from their students wishing them a wedding day filled with love. This wedding was non-stop excitement, laughter, beauty and dancing with friends and family making it an unforgettable night.
