Maggie & Jim had a wedding day that many couples dream about; late September sunshine, warm breezes, blue skies and their closest friends and family gathered at the beautiful beach front venue, The Dunes Club, in Narragansett, Rhode Island. Everything was lovely, romantic and picturesque. But they also had one of the most fun weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. Within minutes of arriving I felt like I had known their families my whole life. Maggie and her sisters had me laughing the entire day, and her parents are the sweetest people who clearly passed on their love of family (and great sense of humor) to their daughters. It was obvious to me how completely they have welcomed Jim into their family and the joy everyone was feeling on this day when it became official. The couple recently relocated to Rhode Island after living in Pennsylvania, where Jim’s big, wonderful family is from.
After taking some photos off site with just the bride & groom, we returned to The Dunes Club where Maggie & Jim exchanged vows on the grassy lawn overlooking the waves of Narragansett Beach. Their ceremony was officiated by a close family friend. After a lovely cocktail hour on the lawn and patio, the newlyweds and guests continued the celebration inside for dinner, toasts and dancing.
Once the dance floor opened, it was all hands on deck for this fun group who clearly love to have a good time. The band, Groove Authority, was fantastic and the R&B tunes had the dance floor packed!
Congratulations Maggie & Jim! I had a wonderful time photographing your wedding day and wish you the very best as you begin your life together!
