Blueflash was back at the Botanical Gardens again for an end-of-summer wedding with Michele and Paul. You may remember them from their Providence engagement session (check out the photos here in case you missed it).
They are a cool Cranston couple who I think are very photogenic. I started off by going to where Paul was getting ready with his best man and hung out with them while they got ready. They're guys, so that was only for about five minutes. After that I headed over to Michele's mom and dad's house which was conveniently three minutes away.
I have to give credit where it's due, and a lot of the detail shots where Michele was getting ready were already "styled" by her mom when I got there. I think I might have to hire her. Her house was also probably the best looking house for photos I've ever come across. There was so much rustic wood and texture everywhere and the light was spilling through big picture windows and white sheer curtains making everything bright but soft.
Michele's grandfather came by the house to see her in her dress since he wasn't going to be going to the wedding. He is 97 and is still getting around on his own. I think it's so cool to see the generations in families at events like this. I love this portrait shot of him, friendly grandfather complete with the Orioles baseball cap.
The ceremony and reception were at the Botanical Gardens. It was setup a lot different than the last time I shot there. It really is a cool place to have a wedding.
Michele and Paul had the Bluecube come along and as usual there was a line at it all night long with guests going back again and again. Have you booked the Bluecube for your wedding yet? My trusty assistant Andrew came along to hang out with the Bluecube and help setup and breakdown.
Thanks so much to Michele and Paul for having Blueflash (and the Bluecube) be a part of their wedding day. Hope you guys enjoy the pictures for all the years to come!
Here's a few shots from the Bluecube:
