Huan & Yang’s Big Day! | Massachusetts Wedding Photographer

Huan & Yang are two of the sweetest people I know – one of the many reasons why they are perfectly matched :)  I’ve known Huan, a skiing and hiking buddy, for a few years, but only recently met his other half, Yang.  Her name means “sunshine” in Chinese and her always cheery, kind disposition certainly lives up to the name!  I was thrilled to be a part of this adorable couple’s wedding at the Independence Harbor.  Here are some highlights from their wedding day….

 

 

The beautiful sunshiny bride, Yang:)

 

 

And handsome groom, Huan:

And then did some bride and groom formals:

 

 

Close friend Dan (also their dancing coach for the first dance!), came out to say hello before the couple headed inside for the reception:)

 

 

Making their entrance as husband and wife!

 

Husband and wife shared their first dance:

 

Friends made toasts….

 

And then it was time to cut the cake!

 

 

Then Yang called all the single ladies onto the dancefloor for the bouquet toss:

 

 

Huan & Yang – I was so happy to be a part of your wedding and I’m so excited for you both…looking forward to hearing about your many adventures, and to future skiing and hiking trips all together !!! Best wishes and XOXO

 

 

An Inspiring Wedding Day for Brunonians Jing & Dennis :) | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

 

Jing and Dennis are truly, madly, deeply in love…something so apparent to anyone who’s spent more than a few minutes with this couple :)  Jing left her home in Sweden to study at Brown, where she met Dennis and the rest, as they say, is history…Both actors, this creative duo decided to tie the knot at the wonderful Providence Art Club.  Here are some highlights from their big day:

 

 

Jing’s beautiful handwritten vows were just one of the many personal touches at this wedding:

 

 

Jing’s flowers also looked and smelled amazing….

 

 

The gorgeous bride:

 

 

A couple flights down, Dennis and his groomsmen were also getting ready:

 

Handsome groom Dennis, waiting to see his bride:

 

 

The first look:

 

We did some formals of the wedding party:

 

I just love College Green and the gates at Brown University….such a perfect backdrop for photos of these two lovebirds:

 

A little piece of Italy…right in Providence!  I loved this alley for a private moment between Dennis & Jing:

 

After our little stroll, we returned to the Providence Art Club to prepare for the ceremony!

 

We grabbed one more photo of the bride & groom up on the roofdeck:

 

Beautiful Jing, ready to be married!

 

 

The couple were married by a beloved Theater Professor:

 

While Dennis & Jing read their personally written vows, there wasn’t a dry eye among their guests (including this photographer).  Their words and the love they so deeply felt were inspiring:

 

Husband and wife!

 

 

Cocktail hour:

 

 

The newlyweds and their immediate family sneaked out during the cocktail hour for some family formals:

 

 

Then it was time for the dinner reception:

 

They had an incredible cake by Emily Oliveira:

 

 

After close friends and family made toasts, Dennis surprised Jing with a beautiful song he’d written just for her…

 

 

The party moved upstairs after dinner where husband and wife shared their first dance:

 

 

And parent dances….

 

The night wrapped up with some serious booty-shaking on the dancefloor!

 

 

Jing & Dennis – you are inspiring couple to be around and your wedding day was absolutely magical from start to finish!  Wishing you so much love and happiness in your new life together!!!
