Lexi Photography » Candid :: Real :: Emotional

It threatened rain all day but we stayed almost completely dry for Casey & Derek’s beautiful Barn at Gibbet Hill wedding. I just love a spring wedding and with a couple as easy to photograph as these two the day was perfect! Casey’s look was classic and timeless—she wore a stunning lace a-line gown, pearl necklace and earrings, and Derek gave her a beautiful Kate Spade gold bracelet. The girls had light pink dresses and garden inspired bouquets while the guys were in classic gray suits with simple white boutonnieres. All of the details were rustic but elegant and the signage by Antea was beautiful.

Most important though was how much these two love each other. Casey and Derek just made me smile the whole day behind my camera. They are loving and kind and happy and that just made photographing them so darn easy! Okay, I just have lots of photos to share and should just get to it already!

Favorite Things:

• Casey had two pairs of shoes and the booties came in handy when we needed to trek out to my favorite spot at gibbet on the misty wet ground
• Every single time I told these two to cuddle up they just melted into one another and smiled big huge smiles…such a joy to photograph
• These two didn’t bat an eye when the rain started for a minute and Casey was willing to bustle her dress and walk a bit for photos despite the rain threat—it was worth it!
• Bubbles…I just really like bubbles in a group photo. :)

I love a beautiful sunny wedding…love it! Kelly and Todd were married on a stunning sunny day in Newport and we honestly could not have asked for a more beautiful day at the end of April. The sun shone bright off the ocean just beyond the white walls at the Belle Mer Island House. The grass was a rich green, the trees were just starting to bloom and flower, and despite a little ocean breeze the sun was warm and comfortable. Kelly and Todd chose beautiful rose gold details everywhere—the cufflinks, the tie bars for the guys, the invites, the escort cards, and my favorite…the girls dresses that were a gorgeous rose gold sequin that picked up every last sun ray and made the day more bright and happy. Belle Mer Island House is bright and airy and such a clean, modern backdrop for this wedding. There were other special moments, (the first look being a personal favorite) and how Kelly’s sister sang their first dance song that nearly brought me to tears. But the way Todd and Kelly just adore one another, laugh together, and love one another made me smile the whole day. Gah I have so many photos to share so I’ll just get right to it!

Favorite Things:

• The girls wore these great rose gold sequin dresses and they were such a beautiful pop of bling
• Kelly is so animated it just made every image come alive…adore her smile and humor
• Todd’s attention to detail for the meswear…very dapper
• Kelly’s sister’s band, Pulse, was awesome and kept everyone dancing all night. Love. <3

Yes it’s April fools day…but it’s also Guinness’s birthday! Today my baby turns 7…SEVEN!!! I have no idea how that happened, I’m not understanding how this sweet baby puppy turned into a full grown adult dog with lots of gray on his chin. I have so many things to say about this pup—about his sweetness, the way his tail always runs in a circle when he’s really happy, and especially the weird walrus sounds he makes when you scratch his back or rub his belly—but what comes to mind is mostly that I love him probably more than anyone should love another earthly being. Way more. And if I could carry him around in my pocket all day as a miniature-sized-Guinness I would be the happiest lady in all the land. But then again, he wouldn’t be such a fantastic pillow if he was miniature sized so I’ll leave him just a little bit overweight and deal with the fact that he steals most of the couch. :)

  • amy leroy - happy birthday, guinness!!!! such a cute post!!!!
