Jessica and Nick’s Wedding at the Hotel Viking
It was a very blustery day in Newport for Jessica and Nick’s 2018 wedding at the Hotel Viking. So blustery in fact that I vividly remember all the windy moments more than two years later. This is another wonderful wedding that I’d not been able to blog, until now!

Being The Bride
A little portrait of Jessica before heading to church. LOVE the light in this sitting area in the Hotel Viking. That train and veil, wowza!
Meanwhile in Another Part of the Hotel…
Nick and friends getting ready.
The trolley shuttled everyone to St. Josephs.
The bride and groom arrived separately, saving their big moment for the aisle.
Trish and I never argue about who gets to hang at the back of the church to get these moments, but I do think it’s more fun than being in the aisle. Trish won out this time – love all these photos!
These shots might not be as artistic as the back of the church photos, but it’s really important to nail them.
We don’t move around to much during a church ceremony, but we do try to sneak in a few special, creative photos.
Always a favorite moment from the day.
Cue The Wind
This is the first of many impromptu wind pics! Don’t get me wrong, the wind can really wreak havoc on the wedding photos, but in some cases it makes the photos!
We chose this spot at the side of St Josephs for the family photos because the light was lovely, and equally as important, it was sheltered from the wind. Formal photos are one of those times that the wind is unwelcome.
Water in the Background?
You planned your wedding in Newport because it’s a seaside town. Seaside towns don’t always cooperate, sometimes they try to blow you back to where you came from. LOL. Regardless, Nick REALLY wanted some water in the background. We had Nick and Jessica jump out of the trolley for a total of 90 seconds to get this photo. Did I mention it was cold too?
The Search for The Right Location
Now we were tasked with finding another sheltered spot for the bridal party. And it should be pretty, and it should look Newporty, fallish, and the light should be dreamy. Please and thank you.
No problem! This is a side street off of Bellevue Avenue.
I’m seriously loving this spot.
Looks like the wind found us after all.
Nothing says Newport like ornate gates, plus they’re fun to shoot through.
It’s reception time, ready for a wedding at the Hotel Viking?
