Belle Mer Gay Wedding, Newport, RI: Andrew & Max

I’ve been waiting to blog this super duper awesome wedding from Belle Mer in Newport, RI. and I finally get to show off this handsome couple. This wedding was a dream come true – a gorgeous venue with modern and unique details and a fun wedding party, what more can you ask for! We did Andrew and Max’s engagement session in Newport, RI, at the Fort Adams State Park, which is on the other side of the ocean. So many great memories there.

We started off getting ready in this big loft at Belle Mer overlooking the ceremony site and the ocean, it was quite a spectacular view. What I loved most about Belle Mer is the awesome lighting. The natural light in the loft was gorgeous, it was another dream come true for me :p

Check out these gorgeous ladies and dashing gentlemen.

It was a Jewish ceremony. The chuppah was gorgeous, decorated with pretty white flowers.

The background looks a little foggy but you can see the bridge behind them, you can see the same bride in their Newport engagement photos.

I think it is my favorite ring shot of the year!!! The blue background was actually the window, which was clear, but we pointed a flash through their blue signature drink into the window to get this effect. Thanks to the bartender who gave us a super blue drink. Don’t worry, we didn’t drink it.
