Married: Justin + Kelly

This past weekend I got to reconnect with some high school friends at Justin and Kelly’s stunning wedding at the Red Lion! It’s always a special part of my job when I get to spend time with people I haven’t seen in years and capture their big moments. These two planned a GORGEOUS day in the rustic venue with amazing flowers and a lot of personal details. They focused on family and spending time with the people they love, and Kelly’s smile and happy tears didn’t stop all day.

Here is a peak at their amazing day!

 

Kelly had two sets of accessories – one for the first look and reception (boots and sparkly earrings) and awesome strappy wedges with simple pearls for the ceremony. I love that a few touches can totally change the whole effect.

Her dress was stunning
Kelly’s dad is sadly no longer with us but she sewed a piece of his blue tie inside her dress as a tribute
And on her bouquet some of her grandmother’s charms
A first glimpse at her gorgeous self
Down the hall Justin was adding a few finishing touches himself
We headed outside for a private first look
Always one of my favorite parts of the day <3
She added this lace to her dress for her ceremony and removed it for the party. Kelly you looked simply amazing!
Her sister and soon to be sister in law
Kids were a huge part of their day – I always love little ones at weddings because they add a lot of energy and spontaneity!
SOOOOO CUTE!!
Time to get married
It was an emotional walk down the aisle with her mom
This venue is awesome – definitely a favorite =)
How sweet are these two sisters and the little one trying to join in?
Married!
A few of Kelly’s special students came by to congratulate her
All the amazing flowers were put together by a friend. They were perfect!
A beautiful soft sunset topped off the evening
Inside were more gorgeous details
TRUTH
The new Mr. and Mrs. rocked the floor
Cheers!
Kelly danced with her uncle (who had the best suit!) and Justin with his mom
The band was excellent – live music adds a great vibe!
Party time
Soooo happy for you Justin and Kelly! Thank you for letting me spend the day with you – wishing you so much happiness!! xoxo

Introducing Delilah

So there’s a pretty cute reason for the radio silence over here – her name is Delilah Jane, and she arrived last weekend! This little one accompanied me to many of your weddings and portrait sessions in recent months, and ran her fair share of road races too =)

Delilah was born at 7:45am Saturday, July 19. She weighed 7 pounds, 5.7 ounces and was 19 inches long. She’s already growing like crazy and is a sweet, happy little girl. Alexus and Caleb are in love so I think we’ll have plenty of help. Thank you for all your well wishes and kind words, and for your patience while I paused some of my work over the past two weeks. Now I have an editing buddy and we will get caught up!

Here is a little peak at our newest addition <3

I brought my camera and had set it on the windowsill – one of the nurses grabbed it and caught some photos of Delilah’s arrival

Caleb and Alexus meeting their brand new sister a couple hours after she was born <3 – our fabulous friend/babysitter/assistant/photography student grabbed my camera for a few minutes when she brought the kids from home to meet the baby. Thank you Melanie for coming to the house at 1:30am and being there when the kids woke up, bringing them over, and just generally being awesome!!!
This little girl is going to be trying to steal the baby as much as possible!
Shortly after the kids arrived my super talented friend and fellow photographer came to capture Delilah’s first few hours with her family. I love love love that we have all of this saved because it all becomes a blur as the kids get older (even if being photographed a couple hours after having a baby and running on no sleep isn’t glamorous!). Thank you Angie!!
We had a little family movie/cuddle time before everyone else came to visit – Frank and I had gotten no sleep the entire night so we needed to be lazy and get some snuggle time with all three babies.
My 94 year old grandmother and her newest great-granddaughter
The boys were silly
<3 <3
She was not a fan of her first bath
Meeting Bumpa
Now a family of 5 – the photo makes it official!
Going home – 2 days old
The daughter of a photographer should have some real newborn photos right? It only took me a week! 
Thank you to Juliet of Maya’s Curls for sending some sweet new headbands for Delilah to model! We have a couple more to use in the coming weeks when I torture my baby with the camera again =)
She always has her hands up by her face
And here is Alexus’s twin – anyone who knew Alexus as a newborn can probably see that the resemblance when Miss D is awake!
She looks so chubby here! And yet she’s the smallest of our three – gotta love the double chin!
Some more cuddles with big sister and big brother
Her tiny head in daddy’s hands <3
You’ll surely be seeing more of the crew in coming weeks. Now back to work for me!

Peggy Mulvoy - Hi Rebecca, I am friends with Kathleen Riley and Christina Gendreau Beaulieu and I love your pictures of your new home and your beautiful children. Delilah definitely looks just like your older daughter. Enjoy, for as you know, the time just flys by. I know, having five children of my own and eight grandchildren. Once again, enjoy, but be sure and get plenty of rest for you as well.July 29, 2014 – 5:40 pm

Jamie Winters - Rebecca, beautiful photos! Got a little teary-eyed looking at them. You looked fabulous after her arrival! The kids look SOOOOOO happy too. Congratulations on your brand new addition! :) July 29, 2014 – 3:06 pm

Married: Paul + Danielle

My last wedding in the whirlwind that was June was Paul and Danielle, married on a perfect summer afternoon with an intimate group of friends and family! These two have been together forever and you can tell by how comfortable and happy they are in eachothers presence. The day was relaxed and fun despite a few little hiccups and Danielle glowed in her stunning princess-like gown. Here is a peak at their big day!

Some sparkle =)

There was plenty of laughter!
Simi started with the guys down the hall
Such a pretty day!
The little church lady was rushing them into the building but there was still enough time for a sweet moment between good friends <3
Here comes the bride!
Married!
No words
The Treetop Room at Lake Pearly was so pretty with views of the sunset!
A fun first dance!
Some of Danielle’s friends took a favorite song of hers (Pontoon) and rewrote some lyrics to make an amazing rendition dedicated to the big day. It was fabulous!
Perfect end to a perfect day! Congratulations Paul and Danielle!! xoxo

Married: Manny + Christina

Friday was a picture perfect June day and I spent it celebrating with a blissfully happy new couple at the Tewksbury Country Club. Christina and Manny were married on the scenic grounds in front of family and friends and spent the night laughing and dancing with their loved ones. Here is a peak at their beautiful wedding!

Christina coordinated purple and white in every little touch
Time to get dressed! Christina’s sisters did the honors

It was a special day for Christina and her father <3
I love going outside for some night photos
And then this happened for our grand finale
SO happy for you Manny and Christina! xoxo

Married: Ben + Ashley

Friday I had the honor of photographing two friends’ wonderful wedding day. It’s always a special treat to be trsuted with a friend’s wedding because I love spending the whole day with them and being a part of the excitement! Ben and Ashely are two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet and I know everyone present was incredibly happy for them <3

The rainy weather didn’t stop the smiles and happy tears allday long, and we even took advantage of the moody weather to make some wonderful images later in the day. Here are some favorites – enjoy! Congratulations Ben and Ash – love you guys and sooooo happy for you!!
They started getting ready at a nearby hotel before heading over the the beautful Quidnesset Country Club in Rhode Island.

Meeting some friends on the way to the country club!
The flower girl was adorable!
I think we all got a little teary when Ashley’s dad got to see her all dressed up.
Finishing touches
Reviewing the vows she wrote to Ben
SO PRETTY
Time to get married!
I think he was happy to see her, don’t you? =)
MARRIED!!
The awesome bridal party out on the veranda
A little misty rain never hurt anyone…and because the course was quiet we got to sneak over to a golfer’s only section and make use of the gorgeous views
Sigh. These next two are magical. Embrace the rain – it’s beautiful!
Back inside, it was time to party!
Ben, your fist pump after the first dance made my night
Cheers!
Such a fun day – can’t believe it’s over but I know Ben and Ashley will be smiling like this for a long long time! xoxo
