A Beautiful Linden Place Wedding in Bristol RI

January 6, 2017

Estefany and Stephen had a beautiful Linden Place wedding in Bristol RI. Have you ever visited Bristol? It’s a gem of a sweet little town, a picture perfect Rhode Island wedding location. It’s not only perfect for wedding photography but is also just as pretty but less crowded then its neighbor Newport.

Linden Place is a vintage jewel on Hope Street,  smack dab in the center of the historic downtown. Estefany and Stephen got ready in the mansion, the bride upstairs in the bridal suite and the groom downstairs in one of the beautifully appointed rooms. How lovely are the matching mirrors?

We  set up Estefany and Stephen’s first look in the garden by having them walk around the side of this pretty little garden building and meet at the door step. Well executed E + S! We loved Stephen’s reaction to seeing his beautiful bride for the first time. You can’t beat joyful tears!

We chose this spot not only for the architectural detail but also because the light was soft and romantic, just like the emotions. Sigh…

I think everyone imagines this wedding photograph for themselves; happily making their way down the aisle and out of the church doors into the sunshine…pausing for a just married kiss on the steps of the church. A classic wedding photograph if ever there was one and one of my personal favorites!

This pretty spot is St Luke’s Church in Barrington RI.

After the ceremony, we took the bridal part to Colt State Park for the formal wedding photographs. Actually, to be more specific this spot is just outside the park at Coggeshall Farm.

It’s so picturesque, one of my favorite spots in Bristol. It’s a quick trip from Linden Place, just a mile or two and sooo worth the trip!

During everyone photo session, there’s a point where we know- Yes! We’ve got it. Nailed it! The photo on the right was that moment.

I have to admit, I love photographing the details! While Trish is organizing group shots and extended family pictures during the cocktail hour, I get to sneak around doing pictures like this one.  Of course, when you have beautiful details like this wedding cake from Confectionery Designs, it makes the task that much easier.

Trish took this sneaky shot during the cocktail hour. She stole Stephen and Estefany for a few minutes while I was busy doing aforementioned cake photos. What a nice surprise when I edited the photos to find this beautiful shot!

Here we are in our “yes we nailed it moment!” More often then I’d actually like, I’m standing in a patch of brambles and poison ivy.
