Wedding at the Cape Club | Kaleigh + Junki

It was a beautiful sun-filled day this past Saturday for Kaleigh and Junki’s wedding at The Cape Club. These two college sweethearts are amazing together and the joy and the tears were abundant all day long.

I’ve been counting down the time along with them to their wedding day since meeting them last fall for their engagement session. You can read more about their engagement session here. 

Before these two college sweethearts started dating, Junki had some convincing and persuading to do before Kaleigh would go out with him. One of the ways he convinced her was learning how to play Daylight on the piano, Kaleigh’s favorite song.

I think that might have sealed the deal to the start of forever because they’ve been together ever since.

On their wedding day, Kaleigh surprised Junki as she walked down the aisle to that very song.

Aww!! I love that!!

They really are special!!

We started their wedding day at the Cape Club with them getting ready there as their entire day from getting ready to the reception was at the Cape Club which made the logistics of the day smooth.

Wendy and Ami are always a pleasure to work with! Kelsey was great as well!

Their first look was incredibly special as well and one that I will always remember. They wrote vows and read them out loud to each other. I know, so sweet?!!

After drying eyes and wiping away tears, the wedding party joined them for photos.

On my drive down to the Cape, the clouds were still settled in and I thought they were going to remain for most of the day.

The sun came gleaming out, and the warm glow radiated as they stood to say their vows, listened to beautiful readings, lovely singing of “Ave Maria”, and exchanged rings.

Their parents were incredibly happy for them. Kaleigh’s dad beamed during his toast at the reception as he spoke about “that Junki” that loves his daughter dearly.

It was beautiful to see all of their family and friends from near and far celebrate with them. When I say far, I mean as far as Japan!

Kaleigh and Junki, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with you and get to know you both over these past months. I am so, so happy for you!! Congratulations again, and big hugs to you both!! xo, Shawon

Here are a few favorites from their beautiful wedding at the Cape Club.

Newport Officers’ Club Wedding | Kathleen + Michael

It’s Tuesday, and I’m so happy to share beautiful moments from Kathleen and Mike’s Newport Officers’ Club wedding from this past Friday. It was such an honor to photograph their wedding and celebrate with their families.

Read more about their story, their wedding day, and enjoy a few favorites from their day.

Kathleen and Mike’s story began when they met a little over 4 years ago at a local tavern. During this span of time, a beautiful relationship blossomed between two amazing people who are such a light together.

Kathleen has such an endearing way about her. She is gentle, kind, and thoughtful.

Mike is a ball of joy, humorous, and he makes her smile in the sweetest way.

To know them is to love them.

My eyes tear up as I think back to their wedding reception and one of the youngest people in the room was excited to give the speech that he prepared about his Uncle Mike and Aunt Kathleen–you are amazing and I love you, he said.

On one of the coldest days in January, after they were both recovering from colds, Mike had an idea that they should go ice skating. Haha!!

It’d be fun! (I’m ad-libbing here, but this sounds exactly like what Mike would say.)

That day, Kathleen said more than yes to ice skating. She said yes to Mike asking her to marry him. Love, Love, Love!!

Believe or not, I first met Kathleen when she was finishing up high school and on her way to college!

When her mom called to say that she was engaged and getting married this year, I was beside myself!

The moment they stepped into the studio, it felt like a reunion. I was so happy to see them both!! We caught up, talked about all things wedding, flipped through a few wedding albums, and then Kathleen showed me her dress. OMG!! It was the perfect dress for her! Classic, elegant and oh, so beautiful. I know you want to scroll down to see it, but keep reading:)

We started their day getting ready at a local hotel near the venue.

The conversations, the laughter, the hugs, the twirling of the flower girl in her dress were sweet and precious.

The light coming through the window was warm, and the glow on Kathleen’s face when she was all dressed made it even warmer.

They shared a first look with the wedding party cheering them on from inside the trolley and through the opened windows, and then they had a private moment before boarding together.

They’d prepared handwritten notes to share with each other, and the moment was priceless.

There were a few sprinkles of rain before the ceremony started, but maybe ten minutes before the start time, the officiant and I high fived each other as the sun came out from behind the clouds.

A gorgeously designed arch, framed them perfectly as they listened to scripture readings, words from the officiant, said their vows and exchanged rings.

The words from their officiant were full of wisdom and encouragement.

Don’t ever forget your story.
Don’t wait to forgive.
Don’t stop believing.

(from their ceremony)

Because of the rain earlier in the day, we finished up the wedding party photos and photos of the two of them after the ceremony. The light was lovely!!

Their wedding colors were a perfect combination of navy, blush, and cream. Giti designed beautiful bouquets that were soft and delicate. The dahlia’s in Kathleen’s bouquet were show stoppers.

The staff at the Newport Officers’ Club was fantastic The ballroom was decorated beautifully and the reception evening was indeed a celebration.

Congratulations, Kathleen and Mike!! It was an absolute honor and delight to be with you on your wedding day!! I am incredibly happy for you two!! Don’t stop believing:) Sending big hugs your way!! xo, Shawon

Here are a few favorites from their day!

Boston Seaport District Engagement Photos | Janette + Monty

It’s been a month full of beautiful weddings and engagement sessions! I honestly get to work with the most amazing couples, and today I can’t hit the publish button fast enough to share a sneak peek of Janette and Monty’s Boston Seaport District Engagement photos from last week. Read more about their story, some of the things they love, and enjoy a few favorites from their engagement session.

Janette and Monty met over two years ago at a speed dating event. It only took six minutes together to lead to happiness and you can see it through their eyes and in their smiles in every single photo.

A couple of months would go by after that night of meeting each other, and they went on their first date at Babbo’s Pizzeria.

We were able to stop into Babbo’s for their engagement session, to take a few photos of where that one date would lead into many more to come.

Their story got a little sweeter this year while this travel-loving couple was spending some together in the UK.

Janette had scheduled an afternoon tea, and Monty was planning to propose.

The moment that they arrived at the Langham Hotel in London, Monty spoke with the staff to get them on board with his plans.

Wanting to keep the ring close by his side, Monty would enjoy their tea time while never taking his coat off. Too funny!

The timing became just right the moment Janette stepped away to the ladies room for everything to fall into place. When she came back, the champagne was poured, sweet notes of Whitney Houston’s “Saving All My Love For You” were chiming across piano keys, and warm emotions filled the room.  Monty asked Janette to marry him and she said yes!!

Are you crying, singing, or are you cheering right now?!

We had the best time at their engagement session; it seems like I’ve known them forever! I think I told them that more than once as we strolled through Boston’s Seaport District.

Janette and Monty, I am pumped for you two and can’t wait to celebrate with you next year! Yay!!

Here are a few favorites from their Boston Seaport District engagement photos!

5 Tips to Include Your Dog in Engagement Photos

Thinking about bringing your dog to your engagement session? For the very first Wedding Wednesday, I’m sharing 5 tips to include your dog in engagement photos.

I hope your Wednesday is off to a fabulous start! It’s a beautiful, sunny day from my window, and I hope that today’s Wedding Wednesday post will bring even more sunshine to your face like it is to mine.

This is my first Wedding Wednesday post, and I can’t wait to hang out right here with you each week to share tips, insight and helpful resources about all things weddings.

5 Tips to Include Your Dog in Your Engagement Photos! Shawon is sharing a favorite Wedding Wednesday tip and it’s all about how to include your dog in engagement photos. Yes, you can bring your furry friend to your engagement session, have a fun time and amazing photos. Prepare for puppy love overload on the blog.

I’ve been a part of almost 100 wedding days and I love being a resource to my brides!

I hope you enjoy this first post! Please feel free to share and leave a comment below if you find this helpful. Also, tell me what you’d like to hear more of.

Two weeks ago, I met Diddy and he stole my heart. Oh, I’m sorry, not P. Diddy but a close second haha.

Diddy belongs to Jen and Kyle and I got to meet him last week at their engagement session.

Now, they told me that he was going to be a handful and that he would cry when they left him with me to change into a different outfit.

I think they were talking about another pup because Diddy was on his best behavior.

Over the past year, I’ve met some of the cutest furry friends that have added more smiles to engagement photos. Friends like Bailey, Rika, Luna and now Diddy.

If you’re wondering whether or not to include your pup in your engagement photos, here are five tips to include your dog.

5 Tips to Include Your Dog in Engagement Photos

  1. Make sure that the location you’re considering for photos allows dogs. Chloe and Pete’s engagement session was at Newport Beach, but their sweet pup was only included in photos at the Cliff walk where dogs were permitted. Speaking of locations, consider how long the car ride will be for your dog. If they don’t enjoy car rides, a different location should be considered.
  2. Have a friend come along so that you have an extra set of hands, and someone to keep them company while you’re having pictures of just the two of you.
  3. Start the session with your dog. We can get pictures of the three of you completed first, and your pup might be on their best behavior at the beginning of the session and not waiting an hour.
  4. Don’t forget treats and baggies for cleanup.
  5. Props are welcomed 🙂 Bring a fun sign for your pup to wear and maybe use that photo for your Save-the-Dates!

Those are my best tips to bring your furry love to your engagement session.

You can have a fun engagement session with your dog, have an even more memorable time, and have great photos.

I hope you enjoyed these five tips to include your dog in your engagement photos.

I can’t wait to meet the next celebrity! Haha!

Have a great Wednesday!

Warmly,
Shawon

Roger Williams Park Engagement Photos | Jen + Kyle

Today, I’m super excited to share a sneak peek from Jen and Kyle’s Roger Williams Park Engagement photos from earlier this week. Read more about their story, some of the things they love, and enjoy a few favorites from their engagement session.

But first, you guys, I met Diddy this week!! Yes, Diddy!!

Oh, no, not that Diddy -haha!!

I met Diddy the Shih Tzu and he was all kinds of adorable.

Before I go on and on about Diddy, because he has that effect on you, let me talk about Jen and Kyle who are crazy about Diddy and each other.

Jen and Kyle met at Dave and Buster’s in Providence three years ago. Two strangers hanging out with their friends and enjoying a few games.

One of them was enjoying a serious round of hoops when their basketball mistakenly hit a beautiful girl in the head. She describes it as the hit she needed to fall in love with him.

The next time they went to Dave and Buster’s would be for the first date.

That date would turn into more dates to follow, and this March, Kyle asked Jen to marry him!

They love the Patriots, go PATS!!, bowling, and Diddy. I think Diddy should have been first on that list!

We had the best time at their engagement session because they are just ridiculously fun together, loving, and joyful.

This summer season has been a rainy one, so we were thankful to see sunshine on Monday after rescheduling a few times.

We started their Roger Williams Park engagement photos outside of the Japanese Gardens so that we could get Diddy in a few photos at the start of their engagement session.

Diddy was the best, and you have to see his cute crown and the sign that he got to wear! Cuuuttteee!

After some photos with Diddy, we spent the rest of our time soaking up every second of daylight before sunset. You can literally see the light changing with each of their outfit changes which were perfect. Their last outfit featured Bruins jerseys because Kyle is a huge fan.

Jen and Kyle, I am so excited for you two and Diddy!! I look forward to your wedding day next August!! I’m seriously counting down the days!! Yay!!

Here are a few favorites from their Roger Williams Park engagement photos!

I thought I would be a history teacher. That was my dream. I got married, became a mom, homeschooled my kids for 10 years, and realized memories were slipping away from me too quickly. I picked up a camera and started documenting my loved ones like crazy. I watched my life change-these photos were a gift to others. They grew our family roots deeper. I ended up making history myself.
