If there was one word I could use to describe Mark and Marlo's wedding day it would have to be family. From the beginning of the day til the end of the night, they were surrounded by those who love them dearly. Two sets of families coming together to rejoice with Mark and Marlo as they said I DO. Throughout the day there was laughter, there were tears, there was hugs, and kisses and smiles. Mostly there was joy, pure joy. I was so struck by just how much this couple is loved and just how much their families love one another. I couldn't help but think just how lucky Mark and Marlo are to have such amazing people by their side.
Mark and Marlo chose Newport Harbor at the location for their summer wedding and it truly was the PERFECT summer day. And no, I'm not exaggerating, really!! Just one day before Hurricane Arthur had raced up the East Coast bringing with it rain, wind and all sorts of Mother Nature's worst. But on Sunday the sun shined brightly, a warm breeze floated through the air and the ocean was calm and clear. It's a rare treat in New England that we are treated to such a perfect day; I couldn't imagine a better wedding gift for Marlo and Mark.
Marlo and Mark, thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of the day. It was delight to document each moment you shared together and to witness such an incredible outpouring of love from your friends and family. I hope that as you look back on each image you can relive the day, moment by precious moment and remember exactly how you felt as you married your best friend. Enjoy!!
I started the day with the girls as they got ready at the beautiful Hydrangea House in downtown Newport. I loved the unique character of this intimate inn!
