When my friend Renee asked me if I would like to go with her to shoot this lovely, intimate wedding in Newport, Rhode Island I was like “heck yeah”!! I’ve never been in Newport, so traveling with my best friend and doing what I love was a win-win for sure!
Anna and Gordie’s wedding took place at The Chanler at Cliff Walk in Newport, Rhode Island with breathtaking views of the ocean. We met with them the day before their wedding for a little chat. Gordie lived in Hawaii for a while and he wanted to incorporate some of those traditions in their wedding. I loved listening to Gordie’s interesting stories about Hawaiian customs and culture. I have never been in Hawaii (bummer) so it was so nice to get to know this beautiful island at least through his stories. We were chatting about their big day, their passion for traveling the world, Gordie’s favorite hobby Polaroid, and of course, about their fluffy pup Naali. Anna is a beautiful Ukrainian girl, so sweet and smart. I’ve studied the Russian language for about eight years so I tried to speak some Russian with Anna and her mom. Unfortunately, with how time has passed, I could only remember “Hello”, “Thank you” and “How are you” (lol).
Anna and Gordie decided to get ready in beautiful Airbnb apartment with large windows, and very spacious … it was like a photographer’s dream. I really loved this place!! There are so many beautiful moments happening at the beginning of the wedding day and always emphasize that good light is the key and helps capture everything beautifully.
Congrats to Anna and Gordie and thank you Renee Nicole photography for letting me shooting this beautiful wedding with you.
