Allyssa and Steve At the Carousel [RI Wedding Photography]

Allyssa and Steve got married a few days before the fourth of July this summer. They are friends of ours that we go to church with, so their ceremony was at Ocean State Baptist Church in Smithfield, where we go.

They had their reception in the carousel building at Goddard Park. Apparently there's no longer a carousel inside. Like everything else in Rhode Island, it's the building that used to have a carousel in it. Regardless, it was a pretty awesome building.

Allyssa and Steve opted to have the Bluecube at their celebration which definitely provided some entertainment.

The makeup was done by my not-often-enough partner in crime Ashley Tucker, of A&L Co fame. Check out her Facebook page to see lots of face scrubs and chapsticks that are so natural you can eat them. Not that I've tried. Lately.

A few things happened after the ceremony that caused a delay for the bride and groom to get to the reception, so we were a little pressed for time with the photos. Hungry guests make for a hostile wedding, so you can't keep them waiting. We ended up sneaking out for ten minutes or so after the meal to get some quiet shots of just Allyssa and Steve. I'm glad we made the little trip to get some extra photos.

Best of luck to you both and enjoy married life (and your pictures!).
