Belle Mer Island House Wedding, Newport Rhode Island: Balquis & Michael

September 10, 2015


Blue skies, salty air, the smell of summer in a historic seaside city of Newport, RI. The perfect setting to gather all your closest family and friends and to have them witness your love and tying the knot. 

From the moment I met Balquis and Michael at Logan Airport for a few brief moments before they had to catch a flight back in April, I knew this would be not just an amazing wedding but an amazing friendship. I'm a little sad I haven't yet met Hudson, Balquis' German Shepherd, but I have hope for the future!

The Belle Mer Island House is the perfect backdrop for a waterfront summer wedding, a clean slate ready to be adorned and decorated to any taste or vision. A bride's and photographer's dream really! Not to mention it's a nice change of scenery from the bustling city of Chicago, where the bride and groom are from.The Island House also has a beautiful loft space that is ideal for getting ready photos no matter the size of your wedding party. The staff at the Belle Mer was beyond amazing and did so much to make everything run smoothly.

We loved being part of this couple's wedding weekend, meeting all their amazing family and friends, and capturing moments through our lens for the newlyweds to enjoy in the future for many anniversaries to come. Balquis and Michael are perfect for each other and we wish them many love-filled years together!


Coming soon on the blog are photos from Balquis and Michael's mini photo session in Boston right before their flight...



Absolutely amazing, isn't it?! This couple and this wedding will leave a lasting impression in our mind. 

If you haven't yet, take a look at the Rehearsal Dinner photos at 41 North the night before the wedding!

If you're planning your Newport wedding at the Belle Mer or any other venue, I would to talk to you about how I could help you capture your vision with photos that will bring you back to your wedding day again and again!
