Sometimes Plan B (or in this case, Plan C) can provide a bride & groom with a wedding day equally wonderful to their original plan and can certainly create some amazing and spontaneous photo opportunities! This is exactly what happened when Nicole & Mike’s original plans for an outdoor ceremony at Beavertail Park in Jamestown were rained out on their wedding day. Nicole’s maid of honor, her sister Leslie, did some quick thinking & phone calls and arranged for a photography location at the butterfly tent at Farmer’s Daughter botanical farm. Hilarity ensued, as did beautiful, special moments that I’m confident Nicole & Mike will enjoy looking back on throughout their married years. The presence of their beloved dog, Te’ya, who served as both flower girl and ring bearer adding another special layer to their beautiful day.
And just to be clear, Mike has never, nor would he ever, punch a duck 🙂
Nicole & Mike’s sweet pup, Te’ya, was one of the prettiest flower girls I’ve ever seen!
Despite the rain that was falling for the first part of the afternoon, Nicole & Mike decided to stick to their plan of their “first look” at Monaghan’s Dock in the Narragansett Pier. It was wet and stormy, but still a fantastic moment!
Then we headed over to The Farmer’s Daughter in South Kingstown, RI for some photos amongst their gorgeous garden settings and the butterfly tent.
I love all the colors Nicole chose for the wedding. She knitted the colorful shawls her bridesmaids wore which perfectly accented their flowers and dresses.
You absolutely have to love a bride and groom that are willing to put giant butterfly signs on their faces on their wedding day.
Te’ya the flower girl is ready for the ceremony!
I love it when the wedding party want to have some fun and are game for climbing up on the sea wall. If you grow up in South Kingstown or Narragansett, RI, the sea wall is a place that holds many memories.
So many great DIY decorations that reflect Nicole & Mike as a couple. Loved the table signs from quilting fabric and buttons, collections of rocks and wedding photos of their family members.
I always photograph the wine being served at the wedding so that my couples can buy more bottles for anniversary celebrations!
Congratulations Nicole & Mike! We loved being a part of your wedding day!
