I was absolutely honored when Jess & Brandon asked me to photograph their rehearsal dinner. Matt and I had planned a weekend away in Newport, RI, to attend their nautical wedding, so I gladly added my camera gear to my packing list. Jess & Brandon have a magical love story (read more about it in their engagement blog here), so I couldn't wait to capture part of this next chapter of their lives together.
They hosted their rehearsal dinner at the Ocean Cliff, which was absolutely stunning. The venue was an open-air tent with sweeping views of the bay and some rolling hills that bordered the water. As guests arrived, they grabbed drinks and made their way to the waterfront to take in the views.
After some mingling, everyone took their seats for dinner and speeches. The toasts were full of funny stories, kind words, and lots of laughs.
It was truly a beautiful night celebrating Jess & Brandon and the start of their new life together. I'm so happy I was a part of capturing these moments for them. :)
